Breast implant removal surgery will take place in hospital. After your pre-op checks have been carried out your surgeon will meet with you again to go over what is going to happen and answer any questions. You will then be taken to the theatre and general anaesthetic will be administered.
Whilst under general anaesthetic, the surgical procedure will take place. Your surgeon will aim to remove your implants through your original incision. The implant will be removed and the area cleaned. If requested, a full enbloc procedure will be carried out at this stage. Your incision will then be closed and taped and you will be taken to recovery to recover from the anaesthetic.
After the procedure, you will be returned to your room where you will be under observation until your doctor has cleared you to go. Usually, breast implant removal procedures are performed as a day case procedure so you will be able to return home the same day as your procedure.
