#Explant #BreastImplantRemoval - areola reduction during explantation without a lift?
You may, understandably, not want the extra incisions for that lift and you can always stage the procedure - undergo just an implant removal now, wait 6-12 months to see what degree of contraction you'll achieve on your own - and have a lift later, if you need and/or want it. That is, in fact, a preferable approach from many standpoints, although it means you may have two procedures when one could have sufficed.
A more complete discussion should be done with your own board-certified PS who can examine you in person and go over the plusses and minuses of each approach. It's reasonable to get more than one opinion before proceeding with this.
I hope that this helps, and good luck,
