At the Cosmetic Surgy Center, we pair breast implant removal with mastopexy surgery to achieve an attractive lift. This is an ideal option for patients who are unhappy with their breast implants and also want to address sagging and asymmetry.

Why Combine a Breast Implant Removal with a Breast Lift?

After breast implants are removed, patients may assume that the breasts revert back to their original appearance. However, this is not typically the case. The new volume created by implants causes the skin to stretch to accommodate it. The weight of the implants can also lead to sagging. Additionally, changes may occur as a result of the aging process.

The best way to ensure a natural and symmetrical appearance after breast implant removal is by including a breast lift procedure in the removal process. This trims away loose skin and tightens the remaining skin for a perkier appearance. Downward-pointing nipples are raised, and the nipples can also be resized and repositioned as needed.

Your Consultation

Before a date can be set for your combination breast implant removal and mastopexy surgery, you will need to meet with Dr. Rai at the Cosmetic Surgical Center for a detailed consultation.

This consultation will involve a discussion of your goals for the surgery, along with your reasons for implant removal. Dr. Rai will perform a physical examination, and photographs may be taken as a reference.

You and Dr. Rai will go over your medical history, including any allergies and all current medications and supplements. Any past surgical procedures will be discussed, as will any pre-existing health conditions. This will help to ensure a safe procedure.

Next, Dr. Rai will tell you about the removal and lift process, explaining all aspects clearly to ensure full understanding. Preparation steps will be discussed, as will the recovery process. Finally, a date will be set for the implant removal and mastopexy procedure.

The Procedure

After general anesthesia is administered, the first step in a combination breast implant removal and breast lift is the removal. Incisions are created, and then the breast implants and their scar-tissue capsules are taken out using en bloc removal.

Next, the lift is performed. The nipples are shifted upwards, and excess skin is carefully removed with a scalpel. The breasts are reshaped, making them look perkier and more symmetrical.

Dr. Rai’s Auto Augmentation Technique

When performing a combination breast explant and breast lift, Dr. Rai can also improve the breasts’ volume and projection using the auto augmentation method.

This method requires no implants of any kind. Instead, breast tissue on the bottom of the breast is shifted upwards to create new natural volume and projection. The results look incredibly natural, and because there are no implants, there’s no need to worry about ruptures or leaks with this form of natural augmentation.
