The Facts About Breast Implant Removal

 

Breast Implant Removal

The choice to have breast implant removal may be your own personal choice or the result of a medical need. Regardless of your reasons, there are many facts that you need to consider before you make a final decision.  You need to be aware of what you can be expect before and after surgery and how you will need to prepare yourself if you do decide to have the procedure.

Reasons why breast implants are removed?

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, approximately 20,000 breast implant removal surgeries are performed each year in the US.

In a few cases, women who undergo a removal procedure choose to do so simply because the current implants are no longer wanted.  This could be because a woman wants a different size, different or better placement, or just wants to be “natural” again.

More than half of breast implant that are removed are related to one of these problems which include an implant leaking or rupturing, collagen fibers growing around the implant causing pain, or the breast changing shape or size over time. Many of these medical reasons make implant removal a necessity because the implant has become dangerous to your body.

Some other reasons why a women seeks a breast implant removal procedure is:

  • The implant visibly ripped or wrinkled
  • The implant is hardening
  • You are having an allergic reaction to the implant
  • There is an uneven appearance
  • You have persistent pain following the allotted healing time

How are implants safely removed?

It is important to speak with your Las Vegas plastic surgeon Dr. Reynolds before choosing to have this surgery. You should discuss your expectations for the procedure, whether you would like new implants, and any other preoperative procedures that may apply.  There may be a need for blood work and imaging tests as well. Your surgeon will advise if there are any medicines or supplements you need to stop taking leading up to the procedure.

If you decide to undergo a breast implant removal surgery, the procedure is short. Your plastic surgeon will have you in and out within a couple of hours.  In only rare cases, you will have to stay overnight for observation.

Your surgeon will sedate you using intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. Your breast implants will then be removed using a small incision under the crease of the breast. If the breast has ruptured, extra care will be taken to prevent further health concerns.

Once the implants are removed, the skin may loosen. Further procedures may be needed to lift the breast and remove excess tissue if the patient isn’t getting new implants. This can be done at the same time or later depending on the patient’s preferences.

Recovery for a breast implant removal surgery is simple. You will be advised to wear compression bandages or a special bra that will help lessen the swelling. It is wise to avoid heavy lifting and extensive reaching for several weeks after the surgery.

If you find that breast implant removal surgery is an option you’d like to look into, please schedule a consultation with Las Vegas plastic surgeon Dr. Reynolds who has a vast knowledge base to address any questions you may have.

Aging Isn’t Easy

Las Vegas Plastic Surgery – Aging Isn’t Easy

 

As we get older, parts of our bodies start to sag and wrinkle as gravity and sunlight take its toll on our bodies over the years. Most people would love to keep that youthful appearance as long as they can. They want to make sure that they look and feel their best all the time. Botox injections and fillers are one way that many people use to help keep that youthful look they desire without having any major surgery.  Botox and fillers help to tighten the skin that is around the injection area so that you can keep that younger look longer.  When you start getting older, you start to lose that youthful glow that you once had when you were in your twenties and thirties. It is natural to want to look and feel the way that you did during the prime of your life. Botox and fillers can definitely help your make facial areas appear tighter and wrinkle free and an overall youthful appearance . Botox is a procedure that is occurring a lot more these days to give your face that younger look and feeling.

Reynolds Plastic Surgery knows how to get you the results that you so desperately want. Contact us today at 702.410-9800 so that we can put a plan together for you to help you get back that youthful appearance again.

Understanding the Limits to Plastic Surgery

cosmetic surgery on a girlThere is one statement you’re likely to hear from the mouth of nearly every plastic surgeon practicing today: manage your expectations.

Having unrealistic expectations about what’s possible with the help of cosmetic surgery is the first mistake most patients make. The truth is, plastic surgery has its limits.

It’s true: plastic surgery does have the potential to help you feel happier about yourself and your body. However, it should not be viewed as an end all be all cure to your problems.

Plastic surgery cannot…

… Make you more popular.

… Fix your love life.

… Make you a completely new person.

… Land you a new job.

… Solve all your weight problems.

… Make you look 20 years younger with one procedure.

Plastic surgery should be pursued only if you are doing it for yourself. Too many people opt to change their bodies hoping that they’ll be able to impress the world or become a whole different person on the inside.

Plastic surgery can…

… Help you to feel more confident in your own skin.

… Minimize the signs of aging.

Before you consider going under the knife, take a good look at your motivations. Are you doing this because you want that extra boost of confidence and security in your own skin? Or are you pursuing a surgical solution for deep-seated psychological concerns that really can only be healed with time, patience, and determination?

If you feel confident you’re interested for all the right reasons, contact a plastic surgeon in Las Vegas at 702.410.9800 today to schedule a consultation.
