Choosing a plastic surgeon to perform your breast implant removal is probably the most important decision, which will impact the final outcome. Breast implant removal surgery is typically a more complex procedure than the original implant placement.
If your primary breast augmentation surgery did not go well or you were dissatisfied with the outcome, it makes even more sense to be careful about whom you choose for your breast implant removal. Your surgeon should have the skill and experience in this procedure, and should be able to address any silicone leakage or other problems that may manifest itself during the procedure.
During the initial consultation, you should feel free to ask questions and express any concerns that you may have about the surgeon’s expertise or the breast implant removal procedure.
