HOW DOES BREAST IMPLANT REMOVAL WORK?
During the breast implant removal procedure, the implants are removed, and scar tissue may also need to be eliminated. Scar tissue is common after a breast augmentation and needs to be removed if it's affecting the form of your breast or causing discomfort. After the implants are removed, Dr. Schwartz may conduct a fat transfer, breast lift, or possibly both based on what had been discussed during your appointment. There are also several choices to replace volume following an implant removal to improve and enhance the shape of your breasts.
WHAT IS SIGNATURE BREAST IMPLANT REPLACEMENT?
Some women may tire of their current breast implants and seek out removal and replacement to achieve a different look. They may be unhappy with the shape or texture of the implants or feel their breasts look too large. Clients that are happy with their implants may still opt for a routine removal and replacement, as breast implants are not meant to remain in the body forever, and they should be removed and replaced every 10 – 15 years.
WHAT IS SIGNATURE BREAST IMPLANT REMOVAL AND LIFT?
After removing the breast implants, Dr. Schwartz will examine your breasts to see what is necessary for an aesthetically pleasing outcome. If needed, he will perform a breast lift to create a perkier, more youthful appearance of the breasts. If you are concerned about deflation after the implants have been removed, he can perform a fat transfer to replace the loss of volume. He will customize your treatment to your unique needs and goals after implant removal to ensure your results look stunning and natural.
HOW LONG IS RECOVERY AFTER BREAST IMPLANT REMOVAL?
The recovery time will vary for every patient depending on the reconstruction required following the procedure. After the surgery, Dr. Schwartz will give you detailed post-procedure instructions and may recommend additional procedures to help reduce scarring. For the first two or three weeks, patients may experience bruising and swelling and should limit strenuous exercise until instructed otherwise. But, patients are encouraged to stand and slowly move around since it helps with blood flow. Optimal results can typically be observed about 4 – 6 months after the procedure.
WHAT IS SCHWARTZ RAPID RECUPERATION™?
Thanks to Dr. Schwartz’s Rapid Recuperation technique, most clients are out to dinner the next evening after surgery. This sophisticated method of gentle anesthesia and injectable numbing medications allows most women to be back at work in a few days.
CAN BREAST IMPLANTS CAUSE HEALTH PROBLEMS?
Although the risk is very low, women can develop sicknesses and/or diseases from breast implants. Called breast implant illness, these conditions range in severity from autoimmune symptoms to breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma, or BIA-ALCL. In these instances, breast implants must be promptly removed. During your consultation with Dr. Schwartz at his Beverly Hills, CA office, he can answer any questions you have about the safety and risks associated with breast implants and the symptoms of these illnesses.
BREAST IMPLANT REMOVAL FAQ
DOES BREAST IMPLANT REMOVAL CAUSE SAGGING?
Breast implant removal without a replacement or an augmentation may result in deflated or sagging breasts. Dr. Schwartz's goal is to provide you with the most pleasing and natural-looking results possible. During your consultation, you can discuss additional procedures to address these issues, which may include performing a breast lift or a fat transfer to help restore a youthful appearance to the breasts.
WHICH INCISION IS BEST?
Dr. Schwartz will reopen the incisions made during the primary breast augmentation. He will check for rupturing and then carefully remove the existing implants, as well as address any leakage. In the case of a saline implant, Dr. Schwartz will simply deflate it before removal. Any attendant scar tissue will also be excised.

He will cover such important topics as financing and insurance, recovery and downtime, anesthesia, risks and complications, and most importantly — your results.
SCHWARTZ RAPID RECUPERATION™
Schwartz Rapid Recuperation™ is a term used to describe a combination of techniques Dr. Jaime Schwartz uses to accelerate the recovery process after your breast augmentation.
Schwartz Rapid Recovery™ starts with anesthesia. Dr. Schwartz uses a gentler form of general anesthesia called TIVA, which stands for total intravenous anesthesia. Breast augmentation clients are given an IV with medication that puts them in an adequate state of anesthesia without needing to use a breathing tube or anesthetic gases. You will essentially be asleep for the duration of the procedure and breathing on your own.
Because TIVA medications wear off quickly and are typically out of the body in a few hours, you are less likely to feel nauseous after the procedure. In fact, the IV medication has an anti-nausea effect, resulting in a shorter time in the recovery room and an overall smoother experience.
Another component of Schwartz Rapid Recuperation™ is minimizing the discomfort of surgery. Dr. Schwartz may inject BOTOX® into the muscles of your chest prior to surgery, or use EXPAREL® (a long-acting local anesthetic) which he places into the muscles during surgery. Most clients take only TYLENOL® after their breast augmentation procedure, can go out to dinner the following night, and typically return to work within one week.
Support from Dr. Schwartz’s team will be available to you 24/7 after your breast augmentation.
As you and Dr. Schwartz develop your treatment plan together, you will come to realize that you are in the best possible hands for breast augmentation in Beverly Hills.
