Houston breast implants can be removed if you are unhappy with how they look or due to medical reasons in the future. However, it is not advised since it does cause women to have puckering, dimpling, and sagging of their natural breasts. We will thoroughly discuss what breast implants in Houston can do for your and your body so you feel completely comfortable with having the surgery performed since we do not want you to regret your decision.

Of course, sometimes breast implants have to be removed for other reasons, such as local complications. If this happens, you may have the option of having another set of breast implants inserted or leave them out. However, depending on the type of complications, breast implants may not be recommended.

Things to Consider

About 20% of women have their breast implants removed up to 10 years after their surgery. There are a wide range of reasons they have them removed, but we carefully discuss your reasons for having your implants to ensure that you will be satisfied with them post-surgery. We want you to have implants if they are something you personally want. Situations may change in the future, and if you have gotten breast implant surgery for another person you may find yourself regretting your decision down the road.

The size of your breast implants is an important decision. If you go too large, you may enjoy them in the beginning but may want them completely removed or reduce their size at some point in their future. Carefully consider what look you want to have to determine how many cup sizes you want to increase with your breast implants.

Timing is also important. If you have chosen to have a breast augmentation, you will want to consider future goals, such as childbearing, to know if breast implants are a good choice for you. We will discuss the choice of having breast implants so you are able to make an educated decision on whether or not they are right for you and decrease the chances of regretting them in the future.
