There are a variety of reasons someone may choose to have a breast implant removed, such as pain in the chest (known as capsular contracture), health concerns, age, or even a desire to return to their natural appearance. Whatever the reason, Dr. Saltz’s goal is to ensure that you are satisfied with your results after your procedure. That’s why he may recommend a breast lift in addition to your breast implant removal.
Is a Breast Lift Necessary After Breast Plant Removal?
To be clear, you are not required to get a breast lift as part of a breast plant removal. There are times when patients are content with the appearance of their breasts after a removal. Dr. Saltz may, however, suggest a breast lift in some situations if he believes that a patient may have loose or sagging skin after the implants have been removed.
What Factors May Help Determine if a Breast Lift Is Beneficial?
When deciding if you would like a breast lift after your implant removal, there are a few things you can take into consideration, such as:
- The size of the implants: Larger breast implants will have likely stretched the skin, leaving the skin looser and stretched out without the implant. A breast lift can tighten the skin and make the breast firmer.
- Skin elasticity: Everyone’s skin is different due, in part, to the variations in elasticity. For those with higher elasticity, the skin will be able to bounce back after the removal of the implant.
- Positioning of the nipple: With the implant, your nipple may not appear as perky, which can be resolved with a lift.
In the end, it’s about the results you’re looking to achieve at the end of your surgery. By speaking with Dr. Saltz, he can help you decide if a breast lift would be best, depending on your unique situation.
