Breast Implant Removal in San Diego

Whatever your reasons, we’ve got you covered with safe, expert implant removal

When performed by an experienced plastic surgeon, breast augmentation is a safe procedure with high patient satisfaction. But over the years, sometimes preferences change or complications arise, and you may find yourself no longer wanting augmented breasts.

Here at LJCSC, our board certified plastic surgeons have many years of experience safely removing breast implants and performing any lifting necessary to ensure an attractive, natural-looking result.

Breast implant removal surgery

You may be a candidate for removal of breast implants if you desire to have previously placed breast implants removed for medical or personal reasons.The intent of this surgery is the removal of your implants, and possible removal of capsules (scar tissue) and local silicone.

Since 1988, more than 25,000 patients have had safe, successful procedures at La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre.

This procedure can be done under local anesthesia if just the implants that were placed during your breast augmentation surgery are being removed. If capsules or scar tissue around the implants are also being removed, sedation and local, or general anesthesia will be required.

Ensuring a beautiful, natural result

Those who have poor skin elasticity or have very large implants removed may want to consider a breast lift when having their implants removed.

Excess or stretched skin can cause breasts to sag, and a breast lift performed during the same surgery to remove excess skin can help to maintain an aesthetically pleasing breast shape. Our board certified plastic surgeons will help you decide whether a breast lift will benefit you.
