If you are having your implants removed most patients also need internal breast work done. Dr. Cassileth uses an innovative “auto-augmentation” technique to put the hanging breast tissue back where it belongs, central to the breast itself. This is critical to having a full, high breast after implant removal. Finally, depending on the amount of loose skin that you have, you may also need a mastopexy. The scar for mastopexy varies from patient to patient, depending on the degree of excess skin. In all cases, however, the scar is kept to a minimum, and the skin is never used to hold or lift breast tissue. As a result, you’ll enjoy smaller scars and longer lasting results.
