With breast augmentation in Michigan becoming ever popular, Michigan Cosmetic Surgery has seen a surge in this particular cosmetic procedure. In fact, breast augmentation is reaching record highs across the country, with 300,000 procedures performed annually in the U.S. Why? Simply put, a breast augmentation can be life changing for many women. And we are pleased to have performed hundreds of breast augmentations in metro Detroit for so many deserving women. However, if you are considering breast augmentation, one concern you may have is this: What if you don’t like your implants? Rest assured that this is a common concern. As with any big change, a certain level of anxiety can be expected. Here at Michigan Cosmetic Surgery, we are happy to report that our number one goal is to make our patients happy and exceed their expectations. And our many testimonials attest to just that. We do, however, see some women who have had a botched breast augmentation elsewhere, or who are just plain not as thrilled with having larger breasts as they thought they would be, and we are able to help them. Read on to learn more about what to do if you don’t love your breast implants.
Understanding Your Breast Augmentation
As with any major body or image decision, it is key to put in a lot of thought as well as your own research well ahead of time. When it comes to breast implants, it is important to discuss your options with a board-certified plastic surgeon you can trust. You should talk about your goals and your surgeon should provide you with recommendations based on your unique needs and your figure. This way, you can be confident you’re making the right decision. It is also important to keep in mind that it will likely take a bit of time to adjust to your new breasts after a breast augmentation. What you see immediately following surgery and the weeks ahead is not the final result of your augmentation. Your implants will look bigger initially, as well as sit higher on your chest. After several months, they will settle in to their permanent position. You should wait — at the very least — until this time before making a decision to have them removed.
Know Your Options
If you’ve given yourself adequate time to adjust to your implants and are still wishing for them to be removed, Michigan Cosmetic Surgery can help. It may be reassuring to know that a breast augmentation is most certainly reversible. As long as your implants were of reasonable size, your breast tissue and skin elasticity will likely return to normal within several months, sometimes sooner. As will your original breast shape. If you’ve gained weight, your breasts may be fuller than they originally were. The process of removing breast implants is typically very simple, though every case can be unique. Done right in our office under local anesthesia, we start by numbing the area around your original scar. We then reopen the scar and remove the implant. In some cases, making a new incision may be necessary. We take every precaution to ensure that nipple sensation is preserved, as are milk ducts so that future breastfeeding is not affected.
