If you are certain you want your breast implants removed there is nothing unusual with removal of the breast implants and liposuction of the side extension / tail of the breast. Liposuction of the side of the breast is done commonly to give the area more definition.

It should be fine to have removal of your breast implants and then liposuction of your flanks.
