If you have implants, at some point in your life you will need breast implant removal or replacement.

Breast implants don’t last forever. Eventually, they will need to be removed or replaced — usually after 10-15 years. If your implants have ruptured or developed firm scar tissue around them then it’s time to see a plastic surgeon to evaluate your options for breast implant removal or exchange.

Not sure? Come in for a consultation at our office in Mentor, OH — Dr. Greer is happy to check and make sure everything is okay!

How much does breast implant removal cost?

Breast implant removal cost depends on how long the surgery will take. So simple removal of saline implants leaving the capsule in place will cost much less than removing the entire capsule around ruptured silicone implants. The cost also depends on whether you want to have the implants replaced. The new implants may be covered under warranty, so check with your breast implant manufacturer first. At your consultation with Dr. Greer she will give you a full cost breakdown including the surgical fee, cost of new implants (if applicable), and fees for the facility and for anesthesia.

What is the recovery like after breast implant removal?

Breast implant removal recovery time varies from person to person. The recovery will be a little more difficult if the entire capsule of scar tissue around the implant is removed. In comparison, simply switching breast implants out for a similar size is a fairly easy recovery. But most patients only need narcotic pain medication for a couple of days, and are back to work within a week. The full healing period for breast implant removal is about a month. After this time you may resume lifting weights or heavy cardio (e.g. running).
