CAPSULECTOMY | CHANGE AND OR REMOVAL OF IMPLANTS

Capsulectomy - Change or remove implants

Many women experience changes in their breasts due to aging, gravity, pregnancy or weight loss. The breasts may lose their youthful shape, firmness, volume, position and begin to sag and droop.

Women then desire to change the size and or shape of their breasts to create more youthful breasts that they have dreamed of, enhancing their confidence, beauty and sexuality.

Dr. Carmina offers four options: Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift, Breast Reduction and Capsulectomy. Each of these techniques will depend on your unique shape and desired results. Dr. Carmina will evaluate your desires and needs and go over everything in detail with you.

What to expect after the surgery

You can go home after several hours and can shower on the next day after surgery. Moderate pain is typical for the first two days but is mostly gone by the third day and easily controlled by medications. Bruising is unusual and swelling will be moderate for the first week but rapidly disappear. For the first three weeks, breasts will sit high on the chest. They will gradually settle into a natural position and contour. Many everyday activities can be resumed within the first week, and most by at least three weeks.
