Reasons To Consider Breast Explant Surgery (Breast Implant Removal)


As people, we’re always changing and evolving — and so are our cosmetic goals! If you underwent breast augmentation surgery in the past and are now rethinking the look of your breasts, you’re in good company. Many patients, including celebrities, have made the choice to undergo breast implant removal to change the look of their breasts after a previous breast augmentation. Could that be the right choice for you? Let’s learn more.

Breast Implant Removal Among Stars

Many celebrities had breast augmentation surgery at a younger age to give their breasts a boost, but as time went by those implants no longer aligned with their current desired look. Here’s a list of celebs who had breast explant surgery and why they decided to pursue removal:

  • Victoria Beckham, because she ultimately didn’t like how they looked
  • Andrienne Bailon, because she didn’t like how the implants drew attention to her chest 
  • Pamela Anderson, because she felt self-conscious about how the implants looked
  • Chrissy Teigen, because although the implants worked for her for many years, she decided she didn’t want them anymore

Reasons To Undergo Breast Explant Surgery

Cosmetic reasons, like those listed above, are a big reason why many women get breast explant surgery. It makes sense that your preferences will change as you go through different stages of life, and removing breast implants could give you the look that you now want.  Breast implant removal surgery for those patients are typically very straightforward.  

That being said, there are other women who experience issues with their implants and removal may be an appropriate recommendation.  These issues include:

  • Pain or discomfort around the implants
  • Changes in breast shape due to age, pregnancy, or breastfeeding
  • Scar tissue (capsular contracture) that has morphed the appearance of the breasts
  • Ruptured or rippling implant
  • Symptoms of breast implant associated illness 

The surgery for these particular issues may be a bit more complex.  Regardless of the reason why you are interested in breast explant surgery, Dr. Gerard C. Mosiello at Tampa Palms Plastic Surgery will ensure that your needs are met. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.

I love Tampa Palms Plastic Surgery ~ Dr. Moseillo, Mary, Nancy & Paula. I had breast cancer and reconstruction with Dr. Moseillo several years ago and knew I would never let anyone perform surgery on me other than him. I decided I wanted to do an Upper Blepharoplasty (upper eyelid surgery). I had the surgery a few months ago, am now at my summer home in Maine and everyone is commenting on how great I look. They have no idea that I had anything done! I keep hearing, “you have amazing eyes”. I am so thrilled with the results, feel 10 years younger and if you’re thinking about this procedure, or any other for that matter, do not hesitate to go to Tampa Palms

Dr. Mosiello, plain and simply put , is the BEST ! I did a lot of research and he was the one I chose and am very thankful and grateful that I did, as I had consulted with other plastic surgeons from other cancer centers. Dr. Mosiello surpassed in every area. He and his staff truly care and are warm, friendly, compassionate and knowledgeable. Which takes the stress out of any pre surgery or procedure. Knowing you have the best surgeon in your corner is the most important part. Post surgical procedures look amazing and he has saved my life, and has made me whole again. Look no further, he IS the best.

I came to Dr. Mosiello’s practice as a reluctant patient who had just been given the diagnosis of breast cancer. I have been in several doctors’ office’s during my diagnosis and treatment and Dr. Mosiello’s office is my favorite. He is a very kind, competent surgeon who patiently answered questions and explained things fully. I was given clear post op directions and checked on by the nurse before my first post op visit and someone was always available if I had a question or concern. His staff is amazing! Melissa, Paula, Mary and Carol are all very personable and caring. This is also an office where I did not wait long periods of time to be seen. Things run smoothly and timely. I would highly recommend Dr. Mosiello to anyone in need of a plastic surgeon.
