Most people who choose to have a cosmetic breast surgery will never experience any complications. However, in rare cases, implants can shift or cause discomfort. If you find yourself experiencing this condition, you may want to consider a breast implant removal in Troy. Dealing with unexpected complications of plastic surgery can be a challenging time. Dr. Danielle DeLuca-Pytell is a board-certified female plastic surgeon committed to providing a supportive environment to discuss your concerns and work toward your goals.
Who Could Benefit From a Breast Implant Removal Procedure?
There are several reasons why someone may want or need a breast implant removal after a breast augmentation procedure. A breast implant may shift into an undesirable location or develop a rippling texture. In rare cases, implants may break, known as rupture, or tighten, known as capsular contracture. Some women just want a new look.
Whatever your reason for wanting to remove your breast implants, our office is here to help. Speak to our team in Troy today to learn more about how a breast implant removal procedure could help you resolve any issues arising from a previous procedure.
Your Initial Consultation
The first step in a breast implant removal procedure is scheduling an initial consultation with our team in Troy. Dr. DeLuca-Pytell will review your medical history to determine if you are a suitable candidate. A breast implant removal is usually appropriate for most patients who have undergone breast augmentation. To ensure a smooth procedure and optimal recovery from your breast implant removal, we may advise you to make lifestyle changes, such as temporarily stopping smoking or using certain medications.
During an initial consultation for your breast implant removal in Troy, our team will listen to your concerns and answer any questions you may have about how we perform breast implant removals at our Troy office. If you are considering having your implant replaced or repositioned, rather than removed, Dr. DeLuca-Pytell could create an ideal surgical strategy to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
You can expect that this surgical strategy will be carefully designed with your safety and wellness in mind. Our medical team will review the breast implant removal procedure in its entirety with you. We will also provide you with a list of personalized recommendations to ensure you have a safe procedure and recovery period.
Recovering From a Breast Implant Removal Procedure
Depending on the patient, a breast implant removal can be done either in the office under local anesthesia or the operating room under general anesthesia. You will want to have someone drive you to and from your surgery.
Take about two weeks—or as much time as our plastic surgeon advises—to enjoy complete rest. Dr. DeLuca-Pytell calls this your “Princess Treatment.” During your recovery, you should avoid going to the gym or doing any sort of strenuous activity. We strongly recommend you limit as much as possible any movement that exerts your arms or the muscles of your chest. Following this period, you can resume normal day-to-day activities.
A Troy Plastic Surgeon Could Restore Your Comfort With a Breast Implant Removal
The unexpected complications of a breast augmentation do not have to be permanent. A breast implant removal procedure may be ideal if you want to remove an existing implant. We also offer procedures to replace your existing breast implant or correct its positioning.
