What is breast implant removal?
Breast implant removal, also known as breast explant surgery, is a procedure that removes breast implants that are no longer wanted. Once the breast implants are removed, new implants of the same or a different size, type, or shape can be inserted.
Some women may not want to continue with implants but would like a fuller breast appearance. Dr Beale will augment the breasts with a fat transfer breast augmentation to achieve an increase of one or two cup sizes with your own natural fat tissue.
Women who do not wish to have augmentation of any kind can have a breast implant removal alone or opt for a breast lift to attractively raise and shape the breasts, achieving a youthful, perky appearance.

What are the options for breast implant removal?
During your consultation, Dr Beale will discuss your concerns about your breast implants and your aesthetic goals for your breasts. There are different types of breast implant removal, and he will cover each of these with you in detail. Based on what you decide in your consultation, Dr Beale will design a customized surgical plan for you that is designed to remove your current breast implants and achieve your ideal breast appearance.
Breast implant removal options
Your options for breast implant removal include the following procedures:
A capsulectomy is performed for a variety of reasons, most commonly to resolve capsular contracture or breast implant illness. Capsular contracture is the painful hardening of the capsule, scar tissue your body naturally forms around breast implants or anything foreign in the body.
Capsular contracture requires a capsulectomy to remove the implants. Incisions are made at the bottom of the breast, then upward to the areola. The implant and surrounding capsule are meticulously separated from the tissues, then removed completely intact.
Breast implant removal with replacement implants
The existing breast implants are removed using the same incisions you had during your original breast implant surgery. The implants are replaced with new ones that suit your aesthetic preference as to size and shape.
Breast implant removal with replacement implants and breast lift
A breast augmentation with lift raises the breasts higher on the chest wall and achieve a perky, uptilted shape.
A breast lift can also be performed if you prefer not to have new implants inserted once the original ones are removed. This procedure helps to shape and lift your breasts, removing excess skin and achieving a more youthful, appealing appearance.
Breast implant removal and fat transfer
After your implants are removed, Dr Beale will use gentle liposuction to remove fat from a predetermined area of your body that you would like to contour and sculpt. The fat tissue is carefully purified before it is injected into your breasts. This increases breast size by 1-2 cups and enhances the breast shape and symmetry.
Breast implant removal without augmentation or lift
Breast implant removal may be performed as a singular action for women who want to leave the breasts without new implants, a breast lift, or new fat tissue.
