Breast Implant Removal in Sarasota, FL

The decision to remove breast implants can arise for many reasons, all of them personal to you as an individual.

As a compassionate and highly skilled board certified plastic surgeon in Sarasota, Brandon Lambiris MD strives to deliver the best breast implant removal Sarasota has to offer. He can assist you in navigating whether explantation is in your best interest. Together, you can discuss the various plastic surgical solutions, including total explant, breast revision, and implant exchange, to design a treatment plan that will allow you to feel more confident regarding your breasts.

What is Breast Implant Removal?

Breast Implant Removal, or explantation, is a surgical procedure that involves removing breast implants without replacement. On the other hand, a breast implant exchange speaks to removing the existing implants and replacing them with new ones. As an experienced breast cosmetic surgeon in Sarasota, Dr. Lambiris offers both options at his private plastic surgery practice.

Who is a candidate for breast implant removal?

The ideal candidate has seriously considered implant removal. Eligible patients are nonsmokers who are not pregnant and have good overall physical and mental health. To learn if you are a good candidate for explantation, breast implant revision, or implant exchange, contact the office of Dr. Lambiris for a consultation to discuss your options.

Why remove breast implants?

There are several reasons that may have led you to consider breast implant removal with or without replacement, such as:

  • Implant rupture
  • Capsular contracture
  • Breast implant-related illness
  • Dissatisfaction with implant size or shape
  • Changing attitudes or preferences concerning breast augmentation

Breast Implant Removal Procedure

Breast implant removal surgery is a day procedure. Dr. Lambiris determines the appropriate surgical technique based on your clinical presentation. With a small incision placed in the armpit or inframammary fold, he removes the implant and capsule. He may or may not replace the implants, depending on what you discussed during your consultation. He then closes the incision with dissolving sutures.

Breast Implant Removal Recovery

The recovery process is similar to the initial implant surgery. Swelling and bruising may occur. Most of our Sarasota breast implant removal patients return to work and driving in a few days. Strenuous exercise and heavy lifting are prohibited for six weeks. Walking is encouraged starting from day one of surgery to lower the risk of blood clots in the legs. Follow all aftercare instructions as directed to ensure a successful recovery.

Breast Implant Removal FAQs

Depending on the size of the implants removed and the condition of your skin, breasts may appear deflated following explantation. However, during your consultation with Dr. Lambiris, you will discuss any add-on procedures that may be needed to produce the best results, such as a breast lift.

While you will experience soreness following your procedure, breast explant surgery is generally less painful than implant surgery. Dr. Lambiris will provide you with instructions for pain management during your recovery.
