In/Out Patient Info:
Breast implant removal side effects are those typically with any surgery and include temporary discomfort, bruising, and swelling.

All surgical procedures carry a risk of infection, bleeding, and reaction to anesthesia. Specific breast implant removal risks can include scarring, decrease or loss in nipple sensation, and sagging skin around the breast
Duration of Results:
Breast implant removal will permanently remove breast implants unless a new breast implant is put in.
Most patients are able to return to work just a few days after a breast implant removal surgery. Recovery from swelling should also take just several days.
Because of the cosmetic nature of breast implant removal, insurance usually does not apply. However, if the implant removal is necessary because of complications caused by implant rupture, infection, or other medical reasons, it may qualify for partial or full insurance coverage.
After any surgery, discomfort should be expected. Breast implant removal discomfort will be minimal if the surgery only involved the removal of the implants. However, if scar tissue was also removed, the discomfort will be similar to the original breast enhancement.
