MTF implant removal

It really depends on the size of the implants and the elasticity of the skin.  The younger you are, the more elastic your skin will be and the better skin retraction you will have.  Also, people that have smaller implants tend to have better skin retraction.  Overall, I would say most people are surprised at how well the skin retracts after having implants removed.  It does take 6 to 12 months to see the final results; however, the majority of the skin retraction occurs in the first 3 or 4 months.  Good luck.
