Breast implant removal
Toula Rose had always wanted a breast augmentation procedure after feeling small chested throughout her teens. At 22 years old Toula finally decided to go ahead with the procedure and had 325cc moderate plus implants.
Toula never felt happy with the results of her procedure and felt she looked out of proportion and wanted a much smaller and more natural looking breast shape. She waited for a year after her surgery in the hope that they would drop and settle but they remained in a high prominent position which she disliked.
Doing her research into breast re-augmentation she came across The Private Clinic and had a consultation with expert breast surgeon; Mr Navid Jallali. During her consultation, Mr Jallali went through all the possible implant sizes that Toula could downsize too based on her original breast pocket size. This allowed Toula to make a much more informed decision about her implant size, shape and profile options that she felt she didn’t have the option of previously.
After going through her realistic expectations with her surgeon, she finally decided on 210cc moderate profile implants and Mr Jallali also agreed to perform a scar revision on her previous breast surgery scar which had healed poorly.
On the day of surgery, Toula was feeling excited to finally get her implants removed but nervous after having had a bad recovery from her previous procedure but felt reassured by the team that awaited her at our London Fitzroy Hospital.
The morning following her Breast Implant Exchange procedure, Toula was pleased to feel well and much better than she was following her original procedure and was ready to return home to start her recovery process.
“My recovery was really smooth, within a couple of weeks I was pretty much back to my every day activities”
Now over 6 weeks on from her implant exchange procedure, Toula is overwhelmed by how different her chest looks and feels so much more in proportion.
“I could straight away see that they were a lot smaller and softer from what they were before”
Living her life online as a social media influencer, Toula decided to share her story on her social media accounts and was amazed by the positive responses she got and surprised at how many other people were in the same position as her feeling unhappy with the size of their breast implants.
“I was very conscious of how big I felt my boobs looked and I never wore low cut tops or outfits that would accentuate them but I now find myself shopping and looking at clothes that I maybe wouldn’t have before. I definitely feel more comfortable and confident now”
In recent news article, Chrissy Teigen has been addressing her concerns over her implants. It is reported that she is feeling conflicted about going under the knife for further breast augmentation surgery after motherhood has left her implants ‘deflated’. See article here.
Pregnancy and breastfeeding can cause changes in the size, shape and profile of breasts for patients with and without implants. Once you have finished breastfeeding the mammary glands within your breasts will shrink back to their former size however, in some cases sagging or stretched skin may become apparent.
We do see many patients come back to visit us once they have finished their family and are looking to restore their breasts to how they previously were before pregnancy or to just simply seeking to have them feeling perkier and more uplifted again. Patients who previously had implants before children may now be considering if to remove or replace their implants but are often fearful of the appearance of their breasts after the implants have been removed.
Chrissy Teigen’s concerns will resonate with many women who are keen to remove or replace their implants, but worry that the changes which occur over time (and potentially post-pregnancy and breastfeeding) will leave them looking worse once the implants are removed. Chrissy’s comments also mirror recent trends which have seen a rise in women seeking a more ‘natural’ approach to breast enhancement – either removing their implants altogether (as per Victoria Beckham and Pamela Anderson) or wanting to achieve an improved breast shape without using an implant at all.
At The Private Clinic, we offer the Breast Auto Augmentation procedure which is a specialised plastic surgery procedure that uses your own natural breast tissue to reshape and improve the shape of your breasts following the removal of breast implants. Unlike a standard breast uplift procedure, which only changes the position of the nipple and tightens the skin, or a normal breast augmentation which uses a breast implant to give the desired breast size and shape, The Private Clinic’s Auto-Augmentation technique uses the patients own natural breast tissue to reshape and enhance the shape of your breasts. It achieves this by relocating the breast tissue into the upper portion of the breast, to give the desired lifting and shaping effect, without the need for an implant.
“One of the main advantages of this ground-breaking procedure is that we can achieve that ‘perfect’ ratio of breast fullness without the volume or weight of an implant,” says Consultant Plastic Surgeon, Mr Adrian Richards. “For women considering implant removal, the prospect of a deflated, sagging appearance post procedure can be a significant concern, so with auto-augmentation we can maintain their breast shape, only implant-free.”

“In my opinion breast auto-augmentation might be the best solution for Chrissy Teigan. She, like many women had breast implants in her 20’s. Following children her body shape has changed and she has decided to have her implants removed but is worried how her bust might look after her implants are removed.
Our technique of implant removal and auto augmentation would remodel her breast and use her own tissue in place of her implants. For many women this a great solution if they decide to have their implants removed and are keen to maintain optiumum breast shape, contour and profile.” – Consultant Plastic Surgeon, Mr Adrian Richards.
