What Is Breast Implant Removal?
Breast implant removal is the ideal procedure for women who are unhappy with their current breast implants. This choice can be for medical or cosmetic reasons. For instance, if an implant has ruptured or leaked, it is often medically imperative to have the implant removed, and the area cleaned. In other cases, the implants may change shape or position over time causing women to feel uncomfortable. Often times, women no longer desire the enhanced size of their breasts. In all such instances, breast implant removal can be a successful solution.
How is Breast Implant Removal Surgery Performed?
Using as few *incisions as possible, Dr. Schimpf will remove the current implants from your breasts. If an implant is defected in one or more ways, Dr. Schimpf will address any medical concerns or underlying issues. Once the implants are successfully and safely removed, Dr. Schimpf has the option to leave only the natural tissue or replace the implants. If implants are not being reinserted, Dr. Schimpf will remove excess skin and position the breast tissue, skin, and nipple to be as symmetrical and youthful looking as possible.
Can I Replace My Breast Implant After Removal?
In some cases, women may wish to replace the breast implants with a different size, shape, or solution. This will be determined at your consultation, and Dr. Schimpf will discuss your treatment plan in detail. This is ideal for women who have had a ruptured or defective implant, as it allows you to address the faulty implant and replace it all at one time.
Who Is The Ideal Candidate For Breast Implant Removal?
You are a candidate for breast implant removal if you have experienced trauma or problems associated with your current implants. If you wish to get implants removed for health or cosmetic reasons, Dr. Schimpf will discuss your candidacy and options for the procedure at your initial consultation.
How Much Does Breast Implant Removal Cost in Charleston County?
Depending on your procedure and if the breast implants are being replaced, the cost of this procedure will vary. Dr. Schimpf will determine your individual cost for the procedure based on the treatment plan he determines at your consultation. We will go over your payment options, which includes financing through CareCredit®. We accept cash, checks, and most major credit cards and ask that full payment be made prior to your services.
