En bloc breast implant removal is a surgical technique that involves removing breast implants and the capsule of scar tissue surrounding them. There are many reasons a patient may seek out this procedure ranging from capsular contracture to they simply do not want their breast implants anymore. A major concern for these patients is how their breasts will look afterward. So, what happens to your breasts after en bloc breast implant removal?
The look of the breasts following implant removal will vary from patient to patient depending on the circumstances of the surgery. In some cases, the breasts will return to the natural shape and size that they were before augmenting them. Other times, a patient may need to undergo a lift to address natural sagging that occurs with age.
Generally, as long as there are no major complications, which are rare, patients will see their breasts return to their original shape and size. Even if a lift is necessary, this does not remove enough tissue to leave patients without any tissue. Dr. Jonov can also use techniques such as auto augmentation to create breasts that look perky and full without breast implants. Additionally, new breast implants can often be placed following en bloc removal, if desired.
