Breast Implant Removal in Atlanta, GA
Breast augmentation is the most common plastic surgery procedure for women. Following the procedure, however, some women decide to have the implants removed or exchanged. At her boutique practice, double board certified plastic surgeon, Marisa Lawrence, M.D., offers breast implant removal for women in Alpharetta, Atlanta and surrounding areas in Georgia.
What is Breast Implant Removal?
Breast implant removal is a surgical procedure in which your implants are removed and the breast tissue is restored to its natural shape and size. Women may choose to have their implants removed due to:
- Lifestyle change
- Personal preference
What is a Breast Implant Exchange?
A woman may decide she wants smaller or larger implants, or her implants may be at the end of their life cycle and need to be replaced. In these cases, Dr. Lawrence performs a breast implant exchange by removing the existing implants and replacing them with new implants.
What are the Benefits of Breast Implant Removal?
Breast implant removal is a relatively safe procedure, but the surgery should be performed by a qualified plastic surgeon who can address any issues found during the procedure, such as scar tissue or ruptured implants.
Am I a Candidate for Breast Implant Removal?
If you are unhappy with your breast implants and would like to have them removed or exchanged, you may be a good candidate for this procedure. Dr. Lawrence discusses the requirements of the surgery during your consultation.
What Should I Expect from Breast Implant Removal?
Whenever possible, Dr. Lawrence uses the scar lines from your breast augmentation to create the incisions for the breast implant removal. If this is not possible for some reason, she will make new incisions in areas that hide the resulting scars. After making the incisions, she removes the implant and evaluates the area for any scarring, silicone ruptures or other concerns. She addresses these problems before concluding the procedure.
