If you are feeling unhappy with the appearance of your current breast implants or maybe you have experienced a problem with them such as a rupture or capsular contracture then an implant removal or replacement procedure may be right for you.
There are many reasons why you may decide to have your implants removed or replaced which can include;
- Ruptured or deflated implants
- Concern about the integrity of your implants – particularly after the PIP scandal
- ‘Bottoming out’ – when the implants sink below the natural breast crease
- Capsular contracture – when your implants become firm
- You may be thinking about starting a family and are concerned about breastfeeding with implants
- You may just feel that your breast implants no longer fit your body or the implants you have are the wrong shape or size
Breast Implant Removal
Implant removal or explant means that your implants are removed from your body and not replaced. The procedure will be performed under general anaesthetic and the implants are removed from the same incision used in your original procedure.
Breast Implant Replacement
Breast implant replacement is when your current breast implants are removed and then replaced with new implants. The implants do not have to be the same as your previous implants; some patients choose to go smaller whereas some may choose to go bigger in size. You can even change the type of implant that you have, the profile of the implant and the position it is placed in. As per implant removal, your surgeon will use the incision from your original procedure and you can expect the recovery to be similar to your previous breast enlargement procedure although in some cases a little easier as your tissue and skin has already been stretched.
