Everything you need to know about removing your breast implants . . .
Whether it’s for Breast Implant Illness (BII), textured implants and Breast Implant-Associated Lymphoma (BIA-ALCL), painful and deforming capsular contracture, or you just don’t want them anymore, this forum and blog covers everything you need to know about these conditions and the best removal options and techniques.
Chances are when you decided to get breast implants, the thought of getting them removed probably never crossed your mind. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) says that as many as 20%. of women get their implants removed within 8-11 years. The American Society of Plastic Surgery stated that nearly 50,000 women got their implants removed in 2018.
