How is breast implant removal performed?
Breast implant removal is typically performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with IV sedation. The procedure involves addressing the breast capsule or pocket, which may be riddled with scar tissue. Incisions are usually placed within the breast crease (inframammary fold). If needed, Dr. Engineer can perform a breast lift or fat transfer procedure to enhance your results and ensure the chest appears natural, feminine, and balanced after implant removal.
