Taking out implants is usually easier than placing them, but there are a couple considerations.
- Taking out implants can leave stretched skin that may require a lift for an acceptable aesthetic result
- Issues like capsular contracture or ruptured silicone implants may require capsule removal, which increases the level of complexity and recovery somewhat.
Like everything in plastic surgery, consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon will give you the most accurate details for your circumstances.
