Board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Farah Naz Khan provides breast implant removal surgery to patients in Dallas, Texas, and surrounding communities.
Are you board certified in plastic surgery?
A detailed procedure such as breast implant removal plastic surgery should ideally be undertaken by a highly skilled, experienced, and board certified plastic surgeon.
Surgeons who have board certification typically invest in high quality and best practices, adopt cutting-edge surgical techniques, pursue continuing education, and follow the latest safety protocols to provide their patients with excellent results.
Have you performed breast implant revisions previously?
Plastic surgery is an extensive field where some surgeons may be experts in facial and body surgeries, but not as proficient in procedures related to the breasts.
The patient should ideally work with a surgeon with significant experience and a proven track record of successful breast procedures in order to achieve the best possible results.
Would you recommend breast lift along with breast implant removal in my case?
Prior to the breast implant revision surgery, the surgeon will understand the complications related to the patient’s breast augmentation and advise them on a suitable course of action.
If the patient wishes to have their implants replaced, the surgeon will recommend plastic surgery options such as breast lift surgery, which can be undertaken simultaneously with the implant removal. If the patient has sagging breast skin because of prolonged stretching by the implants, they may require a breast lift as well.
What are the estimated breast implant removal costs at your practice?
Breast implant removal is generally an elective plastic surgery. Therefore, the patient will likely not receive insurance coverage for this procedure. This makes the cost of the implant removal a vital factor for many patients to be able to make a well-considered decision on this surgery.
What are the risks related to breast implant removal surgery?
Breast implant removal also has some inherent risks and complications associated with it, similar to any surgical procedure. It is crucial for the patient to comprehend these risks and potential side effects prior to making a decision on the procedure.
Which types of breast implants are easier to remove?
In the case of saline implant removal, the surgeon may deflate the implant prior to removing it as this will enable easier removal.
Implant removal may be more complex than the initial placement, especially if the outer shell is foam covered or textured. At times, along with the implant, the surgeon may also have to remove the surrounding muscle and tissue.
How extended and painful will the recovery phase be?
The recovery duration is a vital part of any breast revision procedure. The patient should be clear on the estimated downtime associated with the surgery and understand when she will be able to see the final results of the procedure. Patients should prepare for at least one week’s absence from work or social engagements to recover from this procedure.
