Sometimes women who have undergone breast augmentation with implants decide they no longer want implants and wish to have them removed. This decision may be due to a complication, physical changes that naturally occur over time, weight gain, or changes in the image they wish to project. No matter the reason, patients from around the world frequently visit Dr. Stuart A. Linder at his Beverly Hills, CA practice to have their implants removed (implant explantation). Dr. Linder has extensive training as a plastic and reconstructive surgeon and over 17 years of experience helping women restore their breasts to the size and shape they desire. Implant removal can be performed alone or in combination with a breast lift to restore the breasts to a more youthful appearance. As a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in breast implant removal surgery, Dr. Linder evaluates each patient’s unique circumstances and goals to determine which techniques will best meet her individual needs.
