How Much Does Breast Implant Removal Cost?

Breast implants are one of the best tools available for enhancing the size, volume, and firmness of your breasts. However, many patients eventually require breast implant removal, either to replace them or because they want to return their breasts to their original size and function.

In this post, we investigate how much you’re likely to pay for breast implant removal and some of the factors that affect the final price.

Average Breast Implant Removal Cost

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons estimates that the average cost of breast implant removal is $2,641. However, this price does not include the associated costs of surgery, such as medical garments, operating room charges, and anesthesiologist fees. Thus, the actual amount you wind up paying will usually be a little more than this.

Factors that Influence Final Pricing

While the average cost of breast implant removal is around $2,641, the amount patients ultimately pay varies considerably. That’s because there are several factors that influence final pricing.

For instance, the experience of the surgeon can affect how much you pay. The more experience he or she has with breast implant removal, the more costs will rise. The physical location of the procedure also matters. Prices vary across geographies according to local wage and rental rates. When these go up, so too does the cost of surgery. Final pricing also depends on the cost of medications and follow-ups.

Benefits of Breast Implant Removal and Replacement

The benefits of breast removal and replacement are extraordinary.

  • Replace leaking implants: Breast implants don’t last forever. Over time, they degrade, and eventually, they can develop leaks and ruptures. Thus removing and replacing implants can improve comfort.
  • Improved appearance: Implants can also migrate across the chest over time, changing the shape of your breasts. Removing the old ones and ensuring that the new ones are in the correct position can enhance how your breasts look.
  • Resolve tissue hardening: Sometimes removing breast implants becomes necessary if you develop capsular contracture – a hardening of the breast tissue – or abnormal cosmetic changes to the breasts themselves.
  • Fix asymmetry: You can also use breast implant removal and replacement to correct asymmetry. Sometimes, one implant can move across the chest more than the other, making your breasts look lopsided.

Am I a Candidate for Breast Implant Removal and Replacement?

If you have old implants past their use-by date, capsular contracture, or leaking implants, then you might be a great candidate for breast implant removal and replacement with Dr. Tenley Lawton. You may also benefit if you are no longer happy with your breasts’ current size or shape.
