How long does skin take to retract after explant?
Thank you for the question.
Yes, there is still “hope”; it may take several additional months ( and even up to one year) for full skin contraction to occur.
Generally speaking, what breasts look like after removal or down sizing of breast implants will depend 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 better idea of what to expect after full skin contraction has occurred.
Skin retraction after implant removal
The skin does not really retract after implant removal to any significant degree if they have been in for a long time and by about 4 months, your probably have sen all the retraction that you will get.
