REASONS FOR BREAST IMPLANT REMOVAL
Old Implants:Although implants are not considered surgical instruments and have no expiry date, most implants inside the body have a lifespan of around 10 to 20 years.
Appearance:Many people prefer to remove implants for aesthetic purposes. When time passes, patients can feel that their old implants do not adapt to their bodies. Age, pregnancy, and breastfeeding may have affected the breast tissue that surrounds the implants. Also, the patient may no longer be happy with their breast size or shape and want to make a change.
Pain or Discomfort: When you have some pain or discomfort caused by your implants, removing the implants can extinguish that pain. Owing to scar tissue build-up, or even implants that are too large for the body, soreness or even more severe discomfort around the implant site could be associated. Others may find the additional weight on the chest leads to neck and shoulder strain.
Capsular Contracture: Capsular Contracture: Capsular contracture, or the development of scar tissue over the implant, is a thoroughly normal part of postoperative recovery. However, it is vital to fix it as the development of scar tissue around the breasts. The only way to ease capsular contracture problems is to remove the implants and the surrounding scar tissue.
Rupture: Ruptures of the implants are another reason people would seek surgery to remove their implants. The symptoms become apparent almost instantly after a rupture happens in a saline implant when the breasts take on a deflated look. Although the rupture of a silicone implant cannot be immediately noticeable, it must be removed relatively quickly to prevent the silicone from spreading to other parts of the body.
Implant Rippling and Palpability: Patients with insufficient breast tissue or who have lost a significant amount of weight can have wrinkles or ripples forming on their skin from their implant. When you touch the breast, palatability occurs as such lines may be seen if the modest weight gain is not sufficient to reduce implant rippling appearance and feel.
Autoimmune Symptoms (Breast Implant Illness): Several people with their implants can develop adverse reactions to silicone, triggering symptoms such as fatigue, hair loss, and joint pain. Although breast implant illness is an uncommon side effect of breast implants, it is frequently found in people who already also developed an autoimmune disease such as lupus or scleroderma after they have undergone surgery.
