Breast Implant Removal
All About Breast Implant Removal
Breast implant removals can be performed for a number of reasons, including but not limited to lifestyle changes, illness, replacement or rupturing. Breast implants do eventual require replacement or removal due to aging. Sometimes women may be concerned that their breasts may look deflated or sag without implants due to a lack of volume, however, this can be rectified with the grafting of fat from other areas of the body in place of the implant.
We have worked hard to be able to offer an affordable price so patients do feel pressured to visit under qualified practices or destination surgery. Our breast surgery includes surgeons fee, hospital fee, general anaesthetic costs, compression garments and lifetime follow up care.

A breast implant removal will normally take place under general anaesthetic and takes two hours to be completed in most cases. The implant is removed through a small incision beneath each breast fold, in an area similar to the original insertion site. Once removed, the incision is carefully closed with a concealed stitch.

Breast implant removal does carry risks. There can be increases or decreases in the sensation of the nipple, with sensation changing possibly temporarily or permanently. There are also generalised risks, such as infection, bleeding and bruising.
