Breast Implant Exchange & Removal
When breast implants are first placed, we ensure that they look and feel exceptional. However, over time you may have encountered factors that resulted in your breast changing shape, shifting position or your own personal desire is to change size or remove implants. At John W. Bass, M.D., Plastic Surgery we have more than 30 years of experience helping patients referred from many sources looking to change their look. This may involve replacing implants which have deflated, shifted, or do not meet their expectations at this point in their life. We can provide you with the correct revision procedure and ensure that the results meet your expectations.
If you have decided to have your implants removed or exchanged, we are here to help. We understand that the decision is just as personal as having the implants placed in the first place. Regardless of whether you wish to move up or down in size, have your implants removed permanently or have medical concerns, we are happy to discuss your needs.
Revision to your augmented breast, either with breast implant removal or implant exchange, involves discussion of your desired outcome in relation to how the breast appear during exam. The specific surgical process varies depending on the goal. There is a trend where many patients have had implants for 20-30 years and now want a smaller look or for health reasons want no implant. For this the implants are removed and possibly combined with a breast lift. With the improvement of the shapes of new implants, others desire a different look to their breast or a different size. We will work with you to determine how to achieve the most satisfactory outcome for your desired results and situation.
