What Are the Main Reasons for Breast Implant Removal?

Breast,Augmentation,,Female,Body,With,Surgical,Lines,,Plastic,Surgery,AndWomen may choose to have breast implants for aesthetic reasons. In some cases, women opt for this surgery after cancer-related mastectomy surgery. Although there are benefits that come with breast implants, some women find that they eventually need breast implant removal. Here are some of the main reasons why this procedure may be necessary.

Top Reasons for Breast Implant Removal

1. Personal Preference

You might have had breast implants in your 20s, but now that you are getting older, you are reconsidering how they look on you. Perhaps you had smaller breasts for most of your life, but after having children, your breasts got larger, so the implants seem extraneous.

2. Implant Ruptures

An implant rupture can occur if you select silicone implants. You might notice harder-than-usual implants that feel lumpy. The area can also swell up and feel painful. If one implant ruptures, the second could at any time, so removing both might be best.

3. Implant Illnesses

Some women’s bodies do not agree with breast implants. You might notice joint pain, mental fogginess and forgetfulness, rashes, and consistent fatigue when you did not experience these side effects before the implants.

While the symptoms might not be associated with your implants, removal will rule them out as a culprit.

4. Implant Movement

Although it should not happen, breast implants sometimes move. The implants might not have been placed correctly, or perhaps you chose a size larger than you should have. If your breast skin changes, that can also cause the implant to slide out of position, leading to issues with its appearance.

5. Capsular Contracture

You could also develop capsular contracture, which occurs when old scar tissue tightens around the breast and squeezes it. As you can imagine, this can cause tremendous pain and change the appearance of the breast, making it sit higher.
