Dr. D’Amore’s Introduction to Breast Implant Removal

Several years ago, Dr. D’Amore met with a patient who was experiencing systemic symptoms that she attributed to her breast implants (BII). Because of this, she wanted to remove them and the tissue capsule around them. Even though the plastic surgery community had yet to acknowledge the benefits of removing the implants for systemic symptoms, Dr. D’Amore agreed. To his and his patient’s delight, the surgery alleviated her symptoms. This woman’s story is far from unique, and since then breast implant removal has helped countless women regain comfort.

The relief experienced by this patient inspired Dr. D’Amore to continue studying and performing this procedure. Since then, he has removed several hundred implants and watched his patients be comfortable with their body once again.

Emphasizing Your Health and Your Appearance

Breast implant removal patients are some of the happiest that Dr. D’Amore sees. This surgery improves comfort, health, and aesthetics, creating the best of all worlds. Many women struggling with physical symptoms have already seen other surgeons and primary care physicians who did not hear them out. Dr. D’Amore not only believes that breast implants can pose real problems but knows how removal techniques can help.

This surgery is as rewarding for us as it is for you.

Breast Implants Are a Constant Worry

Having breast implants is an ongoing, lifelong concern. Even under the best circumstances, implants usually only have a lifespan of 10 to 15 years, meaning that additional surgical procedures are almost guaranteed.

Breast implant removal patients are happy we are solving a problem for them and thrilled at the cosmetic results possible without the implants.

Dr. D’Amore does not perform breast augmentation with implants, nor does he offer breast implant exchange.

Creating Personalized Approaches for All Patients

Implant removal is only one part of this process. Offering a wide variety of breast revision and reconstruction techniques to promote optimal aesthetics is a part of our philosophy here. Dr. D’Amore does not stop until he reaches the best result possible.

Because every woman turns to this procedure for different reasons and has unique concerns, we tailor all removal and revision techniques to the patient.

Why Women Choose Implant Removal

Women turn to implant removal for various reasons, some due to health concerns, others due to aesthetics. But whatever the cause(s), they are all personal to the patient. We take the time to learn whether our patients are experiencing systemic symptoms or complications with their implants. Only then can we create the right treatment protocol.

Breast Implant Removal Techniques

The techniques used during a breast implant removal procedure vary depending on the reason for removal and what the patient wants to achieve aesthetically after the implants are gone. While this surgery can be as simple as removing an unwanted implant, it can become more in-depth as additional techniques are needed to address the tissue capsule.

Breast Enhancement After Removal

One of the most significant concerns women have regarding this surgery is how their breasts will look after the implants are removed. Dr. D’Amore combines various surgical techniques to restore the shape and natural look of the breasts. While some surgical techniques are used after all removals, others are tailored to the patient’s interests and needs.

Restoration After Implant Removal

Of course every patient is different, at the time of the first consultation, Dr. D’Amore will tell you realistically what type of results to expect.
