Breast Implant Removal with Internal Lift
Was this photo helpful? 12 others found this helpful
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.
