Implants Causing Health Problems

Patients sometimes report health concerns and complications caused by their breast implants. Symptoms range from fatigue and muscle soreness to poor concentration and trouble sleeping. Many people experiencing implant illness-related symptoms have looked towards breast implant removal for a solution. Whichever symptoms you are experiencing, we are more than willing to help you with any implant illnesses.


The Procedure

Breast implant removal surgery consists of one procedure, done under general anesthesia, which typically lasts one to three hours. While under anesthesia, we will remove your silicone implants along with any possible silicone material from implant leaks as well as removing the breast capsule, the scar tissue formed after the placement of the breast implant. The breast capsule is soft and does not require removal; however, this scar tissue can harden and lead to discomfort which, at Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group, we are more than happy to remove along with your silicone breast implants. Recovery times are variable, but typically the patient can return home the day of the procedure. When you have your breast implants removed, our highly trained and experienced staff can ensure that all risks associated with surgery are minimized.


Benefits of Implant Removal Surgery

Removing your implants can be effective to help you with any implant illness you are experiencing, as well as any leakage problems or discomfort. Implants should also be changed approximately every 10-15 years and when the time comes, we can help you with replacements or removal. It is not uncommon for this procedure to take place and it may bring relief to the implant illness related symptoms. Implant removal surgery is a reliable option for those looking to remove or replace implants that are causing complications and implant illness or for personal preference.
