Is it possible to reduce the size of breast implants?

Women who want to enhance their breast size often decide to go for Breast Implants. Breast augmentation is quickly becoming a popular cosmetic surgery option in India to correct inadequate breast development, congenital (by birth) malformation, breast asymmetry (unequal breast sizes), post-pregnancy volume loss, surgical removal of the breast (mastectomy), etc. Breast Augmentation with implants can give good volume, firmness, beautiful shape and look to the bust. But as there is a mix of information out there, we are quite skeptical about going for the breast implant surgery.

And you might also think- ‘What if I lose or gain weight? Implants would give a smaller or bigger appearance to the breasts with respect to rest of the body.’ So, the question is – ‘Is it possible to reduce the size of breast implants?’

The answer is – Yes! You can go for a surgical procedure to replace the existing implant with a smaller or bigger implant after discussing it with your Plastic Surgeon. While replacing breast implants with a smaller size, patients are concerned about the excess fat and skin tissue that might be left after the surgery. It completely depends on your skin elasticity, the implant placement, and time span for which you had the larger implants. Your plastic surgeon should have all the details of your previous breast augmentation surgery and medical history. This will help both the doctor and patient to come up with a treatment plan that can provide you the desired results.

There are patients who want their implants to be removed and want to return to a natural state. Our Trusted Plastic Surgeons in Delhi at Orange Tree Aesthetic Centre, offer breast augmentation with fat transfer for those patients who still want a little enhancement in their breasts. This doesn’t require silicone implants and enhances the bust line by using the unwanted fat from the other parts of the body. You can also combine this with our effective breast lift surgery, to correct the sagging tissue and overall shape.

Many patients decide to go for much larger implant size, irrespective of their body proportion, but after some years, and sometimes in just a few months, they start to suffer from the side effects of heavy breasts or in this case bigger implants. Women might experience back, neck and shoulder pain, and get slouchy posture or even look and feel odd. This kind of situation again demands the replacement or removal of the implants.

At Orange Tree Aesthetic Centre, we believe in the right consultation meaning that the emphasis is on understanding the results that a patient expects. Then we try to find the right size of the implant that will create the silhouette and contours our patients’ desire and provide them with the best results. Our experienced plastic surgeons are here to help you and deliver the highest standard and cost-effective breast cosmetic surgery at our centres in Delhi, Kolkata, and Manipur.
