We do advise patients to wait for at least 6 months after having a breast augmentation before considering breast implant removal.
However, if you are looking to remove your implants due to complications such as a ruptured implant or capsular contraction then this can be performed as soon as possible to relieve you of any pain or discomfort.
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your breasts following breast implant surgery, then it is important to discuss this with your surgeon. Although the results from breast augmentation are instant, it can take up more than a few weeks for the implants to fully settle and for any swelling to clear before you can see your final results. This is why surgeons do prefer you to wait at least 6 months before deciding on breast implant removal surgery.
