"35 Years Old Wanted Implants Removed and a Lift - Beverly Hills, CA - Dr. Schwartz listened to what I explained I was trying to achieve. Very friendly, treated me like a queen and gave me the best results possible. So extremely happy and grateful. Best doctor ever."- 1. / RealSelf / Jan 21, 2016
"I suffered a ruptured 20-year-old right breast implant and had I been referred to a less experienced plastic surgeon would no doubt be living with a mastectomy today. Dr. Schwartz saved my breast during a complicated reconstruction surgery and I will be eternally grateful to him and his caring team Dawn and Val who followed me every step of the way during my recovery and beyond. Dr. Schwartz is a highly trained and skilled perfectionist, an artist; his work is natural and beautiful. I didn't even bruise and my incisions have healed perfectly and are invisible. I look and feel better than ever thanks to Dr. Schwartz and the Roxbury Institute!"- P.S. / Google / Jan 22, 2018
"Why did I not find this place BEFORE I had implants.Dr. Jamie Schwartz is just amazing. What he did with what little he had to work with is just amazing.Short story: 4th breast surgery, terrible stretched skin, Dr. Jamie Schwartz removed my implants, did a lift and made them better than when I was 17.Long story: At 20, in 1980 (the stone age of plastic surgery in a hospital in rural Long Island), I had a breast reduction mastopexy. After having a baby in 1999, the boobs just did not hold up so I went to everyone in Orange County and out by where I lived in Corona. In 2002 found a Doctor who did an over the muscle silicone implant, which only stretched my skin more. In 2006, I started having pain after my mammogram and went to everyone I could find since I now lived near Beverly Hills and there were so many Plastic Surgeons to choose from I even went to one of the surgeons who was on the "Extreme Makover" TV series. No one wanted to touch me because they feared losing blood supply to the nipple. I did find someone at a "Modern" Plastic Surgery place in Beverly Hills who removed the ruptured implants and did new under the muscle textured silicone implants. After years of progressive unexplained immune system issues, I decided to lose the implants as I feared they were responsible for my illnesses. I went to the Roxbury Institute based on the reviews I read for Dr. Schwartz. What the reviews did not go into was how exceptional everyone there is. The level of care I received before, during and after the surgery was nothing short of amazing. Dawn Rapazzo, Dr. Schwartz' OR Nurse/Assistant even came to my house to check on me. Wow. She called or texted or both every day, visited me in the Pearl Recovery Center (It was worth it for me) and just went the extra mile every single interaction we had.I have better breasts now than when I was 17. Dr. Schwartz made sure to save the nipple blood supply despite going in after 3 other surgeons have moved things around. And he preserved sensation, which is a bonus. In seeing before and after pictures of implant removal, even the photos of Tawny Kitaen, I had very low expectations. Dr. Schwartz did a magnificent job. Just amazing. I wish I never had implants, but from the look of things now, you can't tell I ever did."- Y.R. / Yelp / Nov 04, 2017
"Hi, I am 35 years old and recently had my breast implants removed and a lift done in beverly hills by Dr. Jaime Schwartz and I had to let everyone know that if you are looking for a dr that will literally do a perfect job this is who you should see. If you'd like to read more and see the photo you can go to real self where I posted a photo and prefer to only post photos on one site, not several. I was worried about how I would look after having them removed and I am so incredibly happy with the results. I had a full lift because perkiness was a must. I will tell you my breasts look better now and are even perkier now at age 35 and implant removal than they did at 22 when i had them put in. Dr. Jaime Schwarts gave me perfect breasts. Thank you."- J.H. / Yelp / Jan 25, 2016
Signature implant removal
Clients with ruptured, infected, or hardened (capsular) breast implants may seek out a signature breast implant removal procedure to safeguard their overall health. Dr. Schwartz has many years of experience working as a reconstructive surgeon for breast cancer patients, and he also has a reputation for precision, safety, and aesthetic excellence when it comes to breast surgery results.
When an implant ruptures, it can cause not only cosmetic damage, but may result in pain or discomfort for the client. Another complication are infections, which are rare, but sometimes do occur during the augmentation process. Capsular contracture is a serious complication of breast augmentation that occurs when the scar tissue hardens to the point that it contracts around the implant, causing pain as well as an unnatural shape and appearance of the breast.
In all of these instances, Dr. Schwartz will need to remove the implant or replace it in order to protect your health.
signature IMPLANT REPLACEMENT
Some women may tire of their current breast implants, and seek out a removal and replacement to achieve a different look. They may be unhappy with the shape or texture of the implants or feel their breasts look too large. Clients that are happy with their implants may still opt for a routine removal and replacement, as breast implants are not meant to remain in the body forever, and should be removed and replaced every 10-15 years.
signature removal and lift
After removing the breast implants, Dr. Schwartz will examine your breasts to see what is necessary for an aesthetically pleasing outcome. If needed, he will perform a breast lift to create a perkier, more youthful appearance of the breasts. If you are concerned about deflation after the implants have been removed, he can perform a fat transfer to replace loss of volume. He will customize your treatment to your unique needs and goals after implant removal.
Thanks to Dr. Schwartz conservative, sophisticated surgical techniques, most breast implant removal clients find their recovery is swift and without incident. Most clients will take about 2-4 weeks to get back to their normal routines.

breast implant removal FAQs
what about Sagging?
Breast implant removal without a replacement or an augmentation may result in deflated or sagging breasts. Dr. Schwartz's goal is to provide you with the most pleasing and natural-looking results possible. During your consultation, you can discuss additional procedures to address these issues, which may include performing a breast lift or a fat transfer to help restore a youthful appearance to the breasts.
Which Incision is Best?
Dr. Schwartz will re-open the incisions made during primary breast augmentation. He will check for rupturing, and then carefully remove the existing implants as well as address any leakage.
