Breast Implant Removal in Melbourne, FL
Breast augmentation is a popular plastic surgery procedure for many women in Central Florida, but some women decide that they want to remove their breast implants. Women may decide that they no longer want larger breasts, or they may enter a new stage of life that does not support having larger breasts.

Castellon, MD, offers breast implant removal and other types of breast enhancement for women who live in Melbourne, Brevard County and the surrounding communities of Central Florida.
What is Breast Implant Removal?
Breast implant removal is a plastic surgery procedure that either completely removes your breast implants or replaces your current implants. Women decide to have breast implant removal for many reasons, such as:
- Changing their perspective about having larger breasts
- Becoming a mother
- Starting a new career
- Deciding that they are no longer comfortable with having synthetic implants in their bodies
Whatever your reason for deciding to have breast implant removal surgery, Dr. Castellon provides the compassion, support, and encouragement you need to feel confident in your decision.
Benefits of Breast Implant Removal
Having your breast implants removed has many benefits, such as:
- Feeling more comfortable with your appearance
- Being able to wear new types of clothing
- Improved self-confidence about the way you look
- Reducing stress related to concerns about leaking and ruptured implants
Who is the Ideal Candidate for Breast Implant Removal?
As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Castellon is able to determine if you are a good candidate for breast implant removal. In most cases, you only need to be in good health and have realistic expectations of the procedure. Dr. Castellon will take the time to understand your reasons for removing your breast implants and provide professional guidance so that you can make an informed decision.
What Do I Need to Do Before Having Breast Implant Removal?
Removing breast implants is a relatively straightforward surgery, but you should discuss the procedure with an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon. If you have silicone implants, the surgeon will need to confirm that the implants have not leaked into the surrounding tissue. Additionally, Dr. Castellon has the surgical expertise needed to use your natural breast tissue to restore the breast shape and size after the implants are removed.
What Should I Expect on the Day of My Breast Implant Removal?
Dr. Castellon performs breast implant removal at a surgery center to ensure that his patients have the medical support needed for the procedure. You should arrive at the center at least one hour before your surgery to allow time for pre-surgery preparation. Someone will need to drive you to the appointment and remain available to take you home.
How Long Does It Take to Perform Breast Implant Removal?
The surgery time for breast implant removal depends on several factors, such as:
- Position of the breast implants
- If the breast implants have failed
- Insertion of new implants
During your consultation, we will provide information about your specific surgery, including how long we expect the procedure to last.
What Should I Expect After My Breast Implant Removal?
You will spend some time in our recovery area before being released. For the first 24 to 48 hours after the procedure, you will need to rest. Activities will need to be limited for at least one month.
Will I Have Scars From My Breast Implant Removal?
Whenever possible, Dr. Castellon will place the incisions along your existing scars. If he does need to make additional incisions, he will place them in areas where the scars are less visible.
When Will I See Full Results of My Breast Implant Removal?
You will see immediate results after the surgery. Depending on the extent of your breast implant removal, full results can take six months to one year.
How Long Will the Results of Breast Implant Removal Last?
The results of breast implant removal are permanent. You may notice some change in your breast shape and size as you get older. Pregnancy and weight changes can also affect the results of your breast implant removal.
