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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Breast implant removal is not covered by your medical insurance. We are better able to provide a cost after your consultation appointment and once we know the details of your surgery. Castellon Plastic Surgery Center accepts payment by cash and check as well as credit card, including MasterCard® and Visa®. If you are interested in financing the cost of your breast implant removal, we encourage you to apply with CareCredit® and LendingUSA.com.
