Breast Implant Removal in Philadelphia, PA Dr. Lohner sees patients from Bryn Mawr, Main Line, Rosemont, Philadelphia, and other cities throughout Pennsylvania for breast implant removal. For a variety of reasons, trauma, age, sickness, or other medical complications, breast implants occasionally require removal or replacement. Also called “explantation,” this procedure involves the surgeon making a simple incision to remove the previously inserted implant. If the breast implant removal procedure is desired because the patient is dissatisfied with the size or appearance of her original implants, new implants are placed at the same time (breast implant revision). Patient recovery after a breast implant removal is fairly rapid, with most returning to full activity within three weeks. From the start of walking in to Dr Lohner’s office I knew this would be a great experience just by the simple smile from the staff. Through the whole process, Dr Lohner and his staff made me feel comfortable and calm. I felt reassured that my surgery would go smoothly. I am more than happy with my results and would like to thank Dr Lohner and his staff for making it possible! I can not thank you enough!
