Breast implant removal & replacement, and how we can help

Plastic surgery involves a range of procedures. Before undergoing any plastic surgery, it’s vital to get the right information, to ensure you make an informed decision and have realistic expectations.

If you’re considering breast implant removal and replacement, it’s important to research what’s involved in the procedure and find an experienced Specialist Plastic Surgeon to help you get the best result. 

Why get breast implant removal and replacement? 

There can be numerous reasons women remove and replace their breast implants. While breast implants can last up to 10 years, eventually implants need to be replaced. 

There are some instances where women may have their breast implants removed or replaced with new implants due to a desire for smaller bust size. 

Some of the most common reasons for getting implant removal and replacement include improving appearance, relieving pain and discomfort, deflation or rupture, issues with sagging, implants are more than 10 years, or illness requiring removal of breast implants.

What is involved in the procedure?

Implant removal procedures require careful planning to ensure you achieve results you’re happy with. 

A breast implant removal procedure involves the breast pocket being opened and the implant is removed. The Specialist Plastic Surgeon will check for any potential issues that may affect the new implant, and address anything before continuing. The old breast pocket will then be closed, and a new one created for the new implant. No breast implant removal procedures are the same, so having an experienced Specialist Plastic Surgeon is crucial.

The procedure to perform breast implant removal is more complicated than the initial breast augmentation, and special care must be taken to choose a Specialist Plastic Surgeon experienced with such procedures.
