Breast Implant Removal in Los Angeles

It could be that your aesthetic preferences have changed and you no longer want implants. Maybe your body changed and created medical issues with your existing implants. It might be that scar tissue hardened over the years, making the implants uncomfortable or unusual looking. Perhaps the implant ruptured.

Whatever the reason, breast implant removal or revision surgery offers a re-contouring solution to reduce size and help eliminate issues. Plus, once the previous implant is removed, it’s easy for your Younique surgeon to replace the ruptured/hardened implant with a new one (if you’d like) so that you still have the original enhancement you wanted.

At Younique Surgery Center and Medical Spa, you have many options available, all as unique as you are.

Benefits of Breast Implant Removal in Los Angeles


A breast implant removal can help return your breasts to a more natural size and/or shape.


It’s rare, but when “breast implant illness” happens, breast implant removal may help improve the condition.


In the cases of implant rupture or hardening of breast tissue (capsular contracture), removing the implant can alleviate many symptoms.

The Breast Implant Removal Process

What to Expect



It starts with a personal consultation with your trained and licensed Younique provider. During this one-on-one, they’ll discuss your current implants, your goals for treatment, and your medical history. If your provider determines removing your breast implant is the best option, you will be scheduled for an MRI for your breasts. After receiving the results, your surgery can be scheduled, and you’ll be filled in on the pre-surgery preparation details.



You will receive anesthetic via IV sedation or general. Then, your Younique surgeon will make an incision around your areola or under the lower fold of your breast, then remove the implants and any scar tissue. This would also be the time you could have new implants inserted, or a small breast lift, depending on your goals. The incisions will be closed, and the healing will begin.



Much like after your original breast augmentation, recovery after implant removal or revision will take time. For the first 1 to 2 weeks after surgery, you will need to rest easy and avoid strenuous activities, lifting over 5 pounds of weight, and driving.

You will also need to break out that special support bra or a compression garment to reduce swelling. Your surgeon may also insert drains beneath your skin to drain excess fluid or blood. They’re usually removed after a few days.
