Explantation & Breast Reduction With Lift

Breast Implant Removal With Breast Reduction and Lift

The female patient presented was looking to have her breast implants removed and wanting to improve her breast appearance without placing new implants. During her examination, she expressed she was hoping to have a breast lift and reduction. After discussing her expectations, we agreed to perform an explantation (implant removal), mammoplasty (reduction), and mastopexy (breast lift).

Pre-Op & Post-Op (day one)

Pre-Op & Post-Op (day one)

The video below shows the pre-op marking where I go over the implant removal, breast reduction, and a full breast lift (mastopexy) using a wise pattern anchor approach.

During her surgery, I removed the high placed breast implants and performed a breast reduction (removing some tissue and skin to reshape and reduce the size of the breast) and a lift to bring the breasts to a higher and more youthful position.

The post-op (day one) photo shows a drain placed to help decompress the space around the pedicle that was created as well as wearing a Linder Bra to provide support after surgery.  The patient is happy, and she has achieved a nice shape and symmetrical balance.

Breast Implant Removal

I was presented with a 51-year-old female patient desiring removal of her 300cc silicone breast implants. During the consultation, we discussed her desire to remove the implants, and we determine she would be a good candidate for the explantation no replacement procedure. After removing her implants, drains were placed for seven days. The photo below show an excellent example of explantation.

Implant Removal With Lift

A 50-year-old female came to my Beverly Hills office to have her silicone gel breast implants removed after having them for 24 years. During our consultation, she explained that her shape and lifestyle had changed over time and that the implants felt hard and uncomfortable.

During the examination, it was apparent she had formed scar tissue (capsular contracture) and that she would need a lift due to her skin laxity.

After listening to her expectations, we agreed on a surgery date. During the surgery, I removed the breast implants (explantation) and then performed a full formal lift.

The photo is six months after surgery, and she feels and looks great.
