Recovery after Breast Implant Removal?
Thank you for the question.
Removal of breast implants is generally a quick procedure; even with an associated infection the procedure will probably take under an hour. Recovery is generally painless; however, recovery may be prolonged if an infection is present because of the need for dressing changes and/or drain management.
For a more precise estimate you will need to check with your plastic surgeon who knows exactly what is planned.
