There are several reasons women may want breast implant revision (removal of breast implants or breast implant replacement). They may want their breasts to be bigger or a different shape, or perhaps want to go smaller due to a change in weight, body shape or aging. Breast surgery is the UK's most popular form of cosmetic surgery with the highest satisfaction rate and breast implant replacement can help to increase body confidence and self-esteem. Whilst the majority of women choose to replace their implants with new ones, you can also decide to have them removed altogether. It is a very personal decision and one which we understand only you can make but our highly qualified and experienced surgeons are there to provide you with all the information you need to make a fully informed decision.


For breast implant revision, general anaesthesia is typically used and involves an overnight stay. An incision is made either around the areola or under the fold of the breast and the implant is carefully removed. During reaugmentation surgery the old implants are then replaced with new ones. Unless the implant is moved to a different position; for example from under the muscle to over the muscle where a new pocket would need to be created, a re-augmentation is generally much less painful and more straightforward than the previous procedure as the pocket for the implant is already in place.


You will need to spend a night in hospital followed by some time off work to recover fully. If your work does not involve any heavy lifting you should be able to return to work after a week. Your stitches will be removed 5-7 days post-surgery and any bruising will subside over the next few weeks. A series of follow up appointments with a nurse and a six week check up with your surgeon will be arranged for you by your Patient Co-ordinator.


Our surgeons are amongst the most experienced breast surgeons in the world having carried out hundreds, often thousands of successful procedures.
