In brief: Simple or ruptured?

It depends on your unique circumstances.
If you have an uncomplicated saline implant, implant removal can be quite simple and carried out under local anesthesia. If you have a "generation 2" silicone implant that has been ruptures and neglected for several years, removal can be considerably more complicated.

In brief: No

This procedure is considered a low risk procedure.
Like any other surgical intervention your overall health and other underlying medical conditions may affect the risk of the surgery. It is advisable to consult a plastic and reconstructive surgeon to perform this procedure.

In brief: Minimally

Generally speaking, removal of breast implants is a very well tolerated procedure associated with minimal discomfort and minimal recovery time.
Compared to most other procedures performed, it is associated with less risk. Your plastic surgeon will be able to be more precise/specific depending on your specific situation. Best wishes.
