breast implant removal

I was wondering what are some effects of getting the implants removed? How is it done so you don't look deformed?

Assuming you do not have enormous implants in place, removal of implants should not be a problem.  Occasionally, some form of lift may be required if the tissues overlying the implants have stretched and thinned.  It is often best to remove the implants as a first stage and allow the tissues to contract and heal before considering any additional surgery to reshape the breasts.
