Tip #2: Consider the implants’ location.

You should also consider the location of the breast implants, because the complete removal will depend on where your current implants are placed. Implants are either placed above or below the muscles. Women whose implants are located above the muscle or just under the breast tissue will naturally have more deformity after complete removal.

You can only ask suggestions from your doctor but the decision will still come from you. Doctors are like artists because they create beauty but their ideas and opinions are different. Some doctors will encourage you to have breast implants while others will ask you to remove them. Talk to your doctor whether you need to undergo local or general anesthesia. Breast implant removal can take up to 30 minutes or even up to one hour. You don’t need to stay in the hospital anymore because if the procedure is successful, the doctors will allow you to go home after the surgery.

Tip #4: Consider the costs.

Try to figure out if you can handle the expenses in removing breast implants. Getting or removing breast implants are sometimes not covered by your insurance and the procedure is quite expensive.
