Breast Implant Removal in San Diego, CA

After undergoing a breast augmentation to enhance the size and shape of the breasts, some women may choose to have their implants taken out for a variety of factors. At Rodriguez Plastic Surgery in San Diego, CA, Dr. Jose Rodriguez consults with women who want to remove their breast implants. This surgery is typically performed to address issues such as implant rupture, capsular contracture, changes in aesthetic preferences, or to alleviate discomfort. Breast implant removal can involve removing the implants alone or together with the surrounding scar tissue (capsulectomy). Sometimes, a breast lift might be desired following implant removal based upon the size of the implants, as well as how much your skin has stretched. Dr. Rodriguez ensures personalized care, discussing each patient's goals and concerns to tailor the procedure to their specific needs.

During the breast implant removal surgery, the implants are removed and scar tissue might also have to be removed. Scar tissue is typical after receiving implants and needs to be taken out if it's affecting the shape of your breast or causing pain. After the implants have been taken out, Dr. Rodriguez may carry out a fat transfer, breast lift, or possibly both based on what was discussed during your appointment. There are also several options to replace volume after an implant removal to improve the shape of your breast.

Breast implant removal procedures performed by Dr. Rodriguez may assist you with getting your desired results with a number of benefits, such as:

  • Relieves fears of rupture and other health concerns
  • Increases ease of mobility and physical activity
  • Addresses capsular contracture and subsequent pain
  • No need for getting new implants every 10 – 15 years
  • Relieves painful scarring
  • Lets you change implant volume or totally remove them
  • Takes care of damaged implants
  • Downtime is relatively quick
  • Can relieve back pain
  • Makes mammograms clearer and more accurate

Dr. Rodriguez he’s the most talented doctor I ever seen. I had an accident dog attacked me and bit my ear. I went to the emergency at Sharp Grossmont. It was really bad. I was so lucky they got hold of Dr. Rodriguez and he did a superb job to put things together, and I am really grateful for his help and his talent. I can’t thank him enough. God bless him and bless his family.
