What is Breast Implant Removal?

After getting breast augmentation to improve the size and contour of the breasts, some women may choose to have them removed for several factors. At Stalder Plastic Surgery in New Orleans, LA, Dr. Mark W. Stalder meets with women who wish to get rid of their breast implants. Sometimes, a breast lift might be required following implant removal, depending upon the size and type of the former implants and how much your skin stretched. A breast lift can often help to eliminate excess or sagging skin, which could remain after implant removal. If you wish to return to your previous breast size, implant removal surgery and a breast lift can create amazing results to regain your breasts' original appearance and texture.

How Does Breast Implant Removal Work?

The implants are removed for the breast implant removal operation, and scar tissue might also need to be eliminated. Scar tissue is common after receiving implants and will need to be removed if it's affecting the form of the breast or causing discomfort. After the implants are removed, Dr. Stalder can perform a fat transfer, breast lift, or both, depending on what had been discussed during your consultation. There are also several options to replace volume following an implant removal to improve the shape of the breast.

The recovery period will vary for every individual, depending on the repair required after implant removal. After the surgery, Dr. Stalder will provide post-procedure instructions and might suggest additional treatments to help reduce scarring. Patients will experience bruising and swelling for the first few weeks and should limit strenuous exercise until otherwise permitted. However, patients are encouraged to stand and gradually move around because it can help with blood circulation. Optimal results can be seen approximately 4 – 6 months after the operation.

I had a double mastectomy with implants at Ochsner in 2021/2022. Post-surgery, I had chronic pain and my breasts were extremely hard and deformed. I was told for months that “It will get better” or “Give it a few more months”; however, the pain and discomfort never went away and I felt dismissed and unheard from my treatment team at Ochsner. I found Dr. Stalder through an internet search and made an appointment for consultation. Around October of 2022, we first met in his office where I voiced my symptoms and complaints and Dr. Stalder gave me what he thought my diagnosis was: capsular contracture. I thought he was crazy as my own plastic surgeon from Ochsner never once mentioned those words and Stalder had not even examined me. When I left, I searched capsular contracture on the internet and found that all of the photos showing this looked just like my breasts. I quickly booked the surgery with Dr. Stalder. Dr. Stalder performed my explant and flap surgery in January of 2023. I was told that I would likely need someone to stay with me for at least a week post-surgery. However, I was able to return home alone with friends to check on me for any needs. I went back to work in four weeks (six weeks is usually recommended). My second surgery to “smooth everything out and rearrange my nipples” was in June 2023. It was a same-day surgery and I was back to work in six days. I have had nothing but wonderful experiences at Dr. Stalder’s office. From Jessica at the front desk to Abbie (his PA) and most of all Dr. Stalder. He knows what he’s doing and his precision is excellent. He saved me from chronic pain and the thought that my breasts were always going to be deformed after my mastectomy. I would absolutely recommend him over and over again.
