Why Breast Implant Removal?
Although breast augmentation has one of the highest rates of patient satisfaction, there are many different reasons a patient may elect to remove her implants. Some of the common reasons are:
- EPatient was never satisfied with the size or shape of her results.
- EPatient is experiencing recurring capsular contracture.
- EPatient experienced implant rupture or leak.
- EPatient has decided over time that breast implants are no longer what she desires.
