I would encourage you to remove the implants if they are causing you excessive anxiety to the point that you are not sleeping.

it is impossible to predict what the breasts will look like once the implants are removed. If they are very large implants then you will have some ptosis.

Breast implants can be removed at any time. Usually m ost surgeons want you to wait a few months because they do not want you to make a rash decision.

Removing Breast Implants is Possible

It is possible to remove breast implants and still have fairly normal appearing breasts. If you are very unhappy having your implants in, or are having serious issues with them, then you should have them removed.

If you absolutely want the implants removed then I would remove them as soon as possible.

However you will need a Pshchiatric evaluation before the explantation to make sure you are making the right decision and not regret it as you did when you decided to have the implants.

Thank you for the question.

 I am sorry to hear about the anxiety you have experienced after breast augmentation surgery. Hopefully, you are aware that significant emotional “ups  and down” I'm not uncommon after plastic surgical procedures.

As you can imagine, it is not possible to provide you with precise advice without direct examination.  Generally speaking, much of what your breasts will look like after removal of breast implants will depend on factors such as skin elasticity present and the size of breast implants used.

 I'm sure the plastic surgeons to have seen have suggested that you give significant thought about the decisions you are making. They may have suggested seeking help with the “panic attacks and anxiety” as well. I'm sure you know that it is best not to make important life decisions  until you are as emotionally stable as possible.

Given your history of anxiety etc., I would respectfully suggest that you (at least) consider consultation with a well experienced  counselor/psychologist in your area;  make sure you are making decisions from a good place mentally/emotionally.

Best wishes.
