i am 31 years old and underwent breast augmentation a week and a half ago. i was a 34b previously and after having 300cc nagor impleo implants am currently a 34d. it was a huge mistake as i was unaware for how i would feel emotionally about having foreign bodies in my breasts. my surgeon has never removed implants that have been in for a short amount of time so i wanted to check what the right technique is i.e does the capsule have to be removed? use drains etc? will my breasts look like before?
Breast implant removal at 10 days
Given the modest size of the implant and the brief time they have been in, it is very likely that your breasts will approximate their pre-operative appearance without implants.
Removing breast implants at two weeks
It is not too unusual for patients to have doubts or regrets regarding their implants during the initial healing period (two weeks) and it is not possible to judge the size, shape, and look or feel during the first two weeks. I would not agree to remove implants that are healing uneventfully before three months. I also would not agree to change them to a different size before three months.
However, if the implants were removed at two weeks and the incision to put them in is in the inframammary crease (the best place to put it) then it's a simple procedure to remove them which can be done with local anesthesia only in the office. Assuming there were no other healing problems, there is no need to do anything to the capsule, use a drain, or require much recovery restrictions. Assuming the implant was reasonably sized and positioned and the breast was not distorted by the procedure to put it in, then the breasts should look the same as they were. A breast implant acts like a pillow behind your breast. This would also be true at three months but would not necessarily be true years later as breasts can change over time with or without implants.

Removing implants at 2 weeks will probably only require removal. As to the question of how they will look, they probably will look similar to what you looked like before surgery.

Removing breast implants
It is not unusual for some patients to have a general dysphoria or depressed mood after surgical procedures. I have seen this occur several times and these patients improve over a few weeks and then generally love their new bodies. However, this is not the case for everyone. If you feel that you made a bad decision in having your surgery, then you would be better off taking the implants out sooner rather than waiting too long for a capsule to form or for the skin to stretch too much. If you are sure you want them out, you can have this done under local anesthesia and your skin will likely shrink back down to nearly the same as before the surgery. You will also not need drains if you do this prior to 6 weeks when a definate capsule has formed. Hope this helps.

Make sure this is really what you want, but the capsule will most likely not need to be removed. You'll most likely need drains, however.
Breast implant removal and capsule or drains?
Sorry that you feel this way. The technique is to remove them through the same incision as they were placed. Likely no drains and no capsule removal. But most are up to surgeon.

Breast Implant Removal 2 weeks after Breast Augmentation?
Thank you for the question and picture. Removal of breast implants after 2 weeks does not necessarily require “capsule removal” or the use of drains. it is likely that your breast will look like they did before the breast augmentation.
More importantly, make sure you are making the correct decision; it is not useful for patients to undergo significant emotional “ups and downs” after surgery...
Breast Implant Buyer's remorse - Can they be taken out 10 days after surgery?

The vast majority of women think about implants for months to years before setting foot in a plastic surgeon's office. Although buyer's remorse is not rare with breast augmentation, especially with sizing, sagging, capsular contracture and complications. But in the hundreds of women I operated on, I have never heard the I was not aware breast implants were a foreign body complaint. You knew you were going to have breast implants placed and 10 days after surgery you became aware "how i would feel emotionally about having foreign bodies in my breasts" and now want them out. Respectfully, that does not bode well for the communication between you and your surgeon or for your emotional stability.
I have never had to remove an implant for size dissatisfaction and never had to remove one at 10 days or so. If you were going to take them out and you are ABSOLUTELY SURE you want to do it, this would be the time before irreversible changes set in. I would use drains to collapse the pocket and promote adherence.
Breast implant removal
No warranties , noquarantees.
capsule is formed at about 4-6 weeks. before that no need to remove capsule., and with that short peroid of time you probably will be the same as before surgery.
THIS TIME MAKE AN INTELLEGENT DECISION. BE INFORMED FULLY OR YOU WILL REGRET REMOVING THE IMPLANTS. YOU WERE NOT A CANDIDATE FOR BREAST IMPLANTS TO BEGIN WITH.
