What Will My Breasts Look Like After Implant Removal?

Breast implant removal is a standard practice. These are some of the most common reasons for unwanted breast implants:

The most critical question asked by women who want their breast implants removed is, “How will my breast look?” The breast appearance following breast implant removal will depend on various factors:

When the implants are removed, the factors above determine the look or aesthetics of the breasts. We hope that the skin will shrink and tighten back to an aesthetically pleasing position. Good skin elasticity will result in the best overall outcome. If there is skin laxity with the nipples drooping, a breast lift may be required to achieve the desired breast shape.

This patient is a good example of good skin contraction after implant removal.


Breast Lift After Implant Removal

The breast implant will stretch the skin over time. Most women have their implants in place for many decades, and as a result, there is a permanent change in breast skin elasticity. If the implant is removed in a young woman—or one who has not had children—the skin quality may survive and have an excellent aesthetic outcome. However, if this is not the case, breast lift (mastopexy) may be required.
