Deciding to have a breast augmentation surgery is very personal and so is the decision to remove a breast implant. There are times in which a women wants her implants permanently removed, no longer desiring the fullness of the breast profile that the implant provides. Other times, the patient may have experienced complications with the breast implant, making it medically necessary for breast implant removal.
Breast implants are not intended to be lifelong medical devices. Therefore, at some point in life, patients may need to undergo a secondary breast surgery after augmentation.
