Our highly skilled team of plastic surgeons are dedicated to providing our patients with personalized care and strive to offer the best breast implant removal results Norfolk has to offer.

What Is Breast Implant Removal Surgery?

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that uses breast implants to increase the size of the breasts. In some cases, complications can occur that may cause the implants to become deformed or damaged which can cause the breasts to appear abnormal. In these cases, breast implant removal is performed to address these issues.

Some women may also no longer feel happy with their breast augmentation results and would prefer to have the implants removed or replaced with implants of a different size. in these cases, breast implant removal is performed.

Plastic surgery encompasses both cosmetic and reconstructive surgery.

Cosmetic surgery is performed to reshape normal structures of the body in order to improve the patient’s appearance and self-esteem. Cosmetic surgery is usually not covered by health insurance because it is elective.

Reconstructive surgery is performed on abnormal structures of the body, caused by congenital defects, developmental abnormalities, trauma, infection, tumors, or disease. It is generally performed to improve functions, but may also be done to approximate a normal appearance. Reconstructive surgery is generally covered by most health insurance policies, although coverage for specific procedures and levels of coverage may vary greatly.

Breast Implant Removal Recovery

There will be some swelling and bruising around the breasts following your breast implant removal procedure. It will take around two weeks of recovery before you can resume most of your normal activities. Our team will provide you with post-operative instructions that will help you through the recovery process.

Breast Implant Removal Cost and Payment Options

There are a number of “gray areas” in coverage for plastic surgery that sometimes require special consideration by an insurance carrier. These areas usually involve surgical operations which may be reconstructive or cosmetic, depending on each patient’s situation. For example, eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty) — a procedure normally performed to achieve cosmetic improvement — may be covered by insurance if the eyelids are drooping severely and obscuring a patient’s vision.

During your consultation, our team will let you know what the expected cost of your breast implant removal in Norfolk will be. We can answer any question you may have about insurance coverage and financing options.
