More often than not, breast augmentation is a successful procedure that leaves the patient satisfied for many years. However, that isn’t always the case, and women sometimes need or want to have their breast implants removed.
What Is Breast Implant Removal?
Breast implant removal, also known as explant surgery, is a surgical procedure performed to remove breast implants after a patient has undergone breast augmentation. The surgery is often performed for medical reasons, but it can be done purely for aesthetic purposes as well. In many cases, breast implant removal is followed by the insertion of new implants, in which case the procedure is typically called breast implant revision.
