FAQs on Breast Implant Removal

Three of the most common reasons for breast implant removal are change of size and shape, capsular contracture and implant rupture. The breast implant removal process is fairly quick and can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour to complete. If the implant is saline, doctors may opt to deflate it first to smooth the progress of the removal. The cost for breast implant removal usually ranges between $1,000 and $4,000.


Recovery time from breast implant removal surgery is usually quick, with several patients returning to everyday activity within a couple of days and full activity within a matter of weeks. Following breast implant removal surgery, there may be some mild discomfort, swelling and bruising. Some complications if any may include: scarring; bleeding; loss of nipple sensation; and loose skin.
