I have 10-15 patients every year see me for removal without replacement, and with the proper technique your breasts will go back to exactly the way they were before you ever had implants.
My approach is the following:
1) completely remove the capsule and the implants
2) place a drain for five days
3) you wear a tight compression bra 24/7 for 12 weeks
After the 12 weeks I reexamine you, and 1 in 20 patients will need a lift, whereas all the others have had enough tissue shrinkage that a lift is not necessary.
Hope this helps!
Will my breast get saggy and wrinkly after implant removal?
Generally speaking what breasts look like after explantation depends on several factors such as: the quality of skin elasticity (the better the elasticity the better the skin will bounce back), the size of the implants used (the larger the implant the more trouble you may have with redundant skin), and the amount of breast tissue present at this time (which may have changed since the time of your breast augmentation).
Life experience since your breast augmentation procedure, such as pregnancy or weight gain weight loss, will potentially influence the factors discussed above. If you take these factors into consideration and apply them to your specific circumstances you may get a good idea of what to expect after the implants are removed.
Consulting with well experienced board-certified plastic surgeons in person will be helpful.
