Some patients decide that they no longer want to have breast implants. Their decision may be due to weight change, hormonal changes resulting in a breast size change, poor results, multiple and ultimately less-than-successful breast revision surgeries, cancer scares leading to a desire for removal, or their lifestyle and relationships have changed such that they no longer want them. Whatever the cause, patients are always anxious about what they will look like without implants, but more often than not, patients who have their implants removed look better afterwards than they anticipated. In some situations a lift can be necessary. Because of the highly variable nature of patient tissues and implant sizes, it is unlikely to see any one picture that shows someone exactly like you. But taken as a group of photos, you may get some idea of the type of results associated with removal.
Dr. Teitelbaum was a member of the national plastic surgery task force that developed the Covid-19 protocols for plastic surgery offices. He is therefore well-versed in all of the recommendations and his office meets or exceeds all of them. By now you are familiar with all the obvious measures such as reminding patients and staff not to come to the office if they have any symptoms, taking temperatures, maintaining social distancing, having everyone wear masks, placing hand sanitizers everywhere, reducing the number of patients in the office at one time, testing all surgical patients, etc. One unique feature is that Dr. Teitelbaum’s operating room has "laminar flow" – a very advanced system that directs the flow of air from a large diffuser on the ceiling to exhausts near the floor, ensuring that the fresh air flows in one direction. This not only reduces the chance of COVID infections for the patients and staff, but it also reduces the risk of surgical infections.
