Breast Implant Removal in Charlotte, NC

What is Breast Implant Removal?
Breast implant removal is a treatment that is done to reverse the breast augmentation procedure, specifically by removing the breast implants. Breast implant removal may be done out of necessity or due to personal preference. For starters, patients may require breast implant removal in the event of a capsular contracture or other complications with the breast implants. On the other hand, patients may choose to have breast implants removed if they are unhappy with the effects they have on the breasts. The breast implant removal technique enables patients to return to their initial breast shape and size.
Benefits of Breast Implant Removal
Benefits of the breast implant removal treatment include:
- Reversing undesirable results from a previous breast augmentation
- Removing breast implants to preserve the health
- Restores natural breast size and shape
- Can often be performed without additional scarring
Who is the Ideal Candidate for Breast Implant Removal?
The ideal candidate for a breast implant removal is a patient who is unhappy with their current breast implants, and would prefer to return the breasts to their natural state. However, the best way to determine your candidacy for the breast implant removal treatment is to schedule a consultation with Dr. David Klein or Dr. Andrew Kochuba. During this consultation, they can determine if a breast implant removal is the best solution for you.
What is the Breast Implant Removal Procedure Like?
The breast implant removal is performed with general anesthesia. When possible, Dr. David Klein and Dr. Andrew Kochuba will use the same incision areas as your initial surgery, which enables them to remove your breast implants without creating any additional scarring. Once the breast implants are removed, the treatment will be complete. If desired, patients can opt to replace their breast implants with new implants in a breast implant exchange. This procedure may take up to two hours to perform.
What Can I Expect After Breast Implant Removal?
After your breast implant removal, you can expect swelling, bruising and discomfort in the breasts as the tissue heals. Ensuring that the tissue heals properly is key to achieving optimal results and enjoying a comfortable recovery period. For this reason, many patients take one to two weeks off of work and other activities to rest as much as possible. Additional downtime may be necessary in some cases. On the day of your breast implant removal, we’ll provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to help you successfully navigate the recovery process. Once the breast implants are removed, your breasts will immediately return to their natural shape and size, albeit with some short-term swelling that may distort your final results.
How Much Does Breast Implant Removal Cost in Charlotte, NC?
The cost of your breast implant removal will be determined based on the unique treatment plan you develop with Dr. David Klein and Dr. Andrew Kochuba during your initial consultation. When performed as a medically necessary procedure, this treatment may be eligible for coverage by your health insurance provider. When performed as an elective cosmetic treatment, breast implant removal is not usually covered by insurance. However, we do everything possible to make this and other treatments affordable for our patients. Payments can be made via cash, check, major credit card and CareCredit® financing.
