What is Breast Implant Removal?
Sometimes, after getting a breast augmentation to change the size and contour of the breasts, women may decide to have them removed for a number of reasons. At Dr. Corbin Plastic Surgery in Brea and Beverly Hills, CA, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Frederic Corbin meets with patients who want to get rid of their breast implants. In some cases, a breast lift may be required after implant removal, depending on the type of implants removed and how much your skin stretched. A lift can typically help improve the look of sagging skin, which sometimes remains after implant removal. If you want to return to your original breast size, breast implant removal surgery and a breast lift can typically create beautiful results to improve the look and texture of your breasts.
"Dr. Corbin performed my breast augmentation 20 years ago and the result was better than I expected. My breasts looked beautiful and did not look overdone nor fake. I had to tell my now husband that that I had implants, otherwise he would not have suspected. I had no visible scarring.Twenty years later - pregnancies, breast feeding and weight gain/loss, I decided I needed a lift. I just recently had my lift performed by Dr. Corbin. He is professional, honest and more than anything, trustworthy. These are the reasons I went back to him. He also goes the extra mile in after care to ensure his patients are healing healthily and beautifully. I absolutely love my result. My breasts once again look like they did in my 20s (even better) and I am approaching 50. His staff/front office professionals, Alice and Dee, are always so welcoming and caring. They seem to be truly invested in all of the patients that come in and out of their door. I always felt very comfortable with them.If I consider any other cosmetic procedures in the future, I will undoubtedly go back to Dr. Corbin. I highly recommend him."- Y.M. / Yelp / Mar 01, 2021

Can you Remove My Implants?
Breast implant removal may be an option to fix a range of issues experienced following breast augmentation, such as scar tissue (capsular contracture), implant malfunction, or dissatisfaction with breast size. Some women may just prefer their original breasts and want to return them to that appearance. No matter the reason, breast implant removal combined with a breast lift can help to counteract the outcomes of breast augmentation, giving you a natural-looking, desirable aesthetic. Before your procedure, Dr. Corbin will talk with you about your specific cosmetic goals so that he can best achieve them.
How Implants Are Removed
During breast implant removal surgery, Dr. Corbin will remove the implants and may also need to eliminate scar tissue. Scar tissue is common after getting implants and needs to be removed if it affects the form of your breast or causes pain. After removing the implants, Dr. Corbin may perform a fat transfer, breast lift, or both based on the treatment plan formed during your consultation. Additionally, there are several options to add volume after implant removal in order to enhance the shape of the breast.
The recovery period varies for each patient depending on the repair required following implant removal. After the surgery, Dr. Corbin will provide post-procedure directions and might recommend additional procedures to help reduce scarring. For the first couple of weeks, patients usually experience swelling and bruising and must avoid strenuous exercise until cleared by Dr. Corbin. However, we encourage patients to get up and gradually move around to help with blood flow. Optimal results can normally be observed about 4 – 6 months following the procedure.
