I have been very happy with the long term results of removing breast implants without doing an immediate breast lift. I was led to try this by a patient who insisted all she wanted was removal of the implants, no breast lift. She stated that she did not care what her breasts looked like after this procedure but wanted to be back to her life as quickly as possible.
What we found together is that her breasts looked just awful in the first week, but by the end of the second week, the skin had contracted and the breasts looked normal! I am aware that this is not what is currently recommended in the surgical community, but I have several patients already who are very happy with the results. The risk is that in several months, if the breasts remain too droopy, a breast lift might be needed. However, even if this were the case, the incisions needed would be smaller than if the lift were done at the time of implant removal because the skin will have had a chance to tighten some on its own.
I am in California but there are many good surgeons in New York. I trained in New York and have remained in close contact with several plastic surgeons there. Dr. Paul Weiss is one I would recommend for a consultation.
