Procedure Overview

A breast implant removal and reaugmentation is a surgical procedure in which a patient’s current implants are removed along with any internal scar tissue, the pocket is repaired, and the new implants are placed. This is usually carried out through the original incision to minimise scarring.

Implants do not have a sell-by date and therefore do not require replacing every 10 – 20 years as some people currently believe. Reasons why patients would want to undergo breast implant removal and replace their implants include:

  1. To increase or decrease the size of the breasts
  2. Breast appearance has changed following child birth or weight loss
  3. Breast appearance has changed following weight loss
  4. Breast appearance has changed with age. With age skin can weaken and gravity takes its toll resulting in a less desirable look

A breast implant removal procedure is low risk, but like any procedure there are still risks involved. One risk associated with breast enlargements is capsular contracture, or capsulation. This is the hardening of scar tissue around the implant, which can result in needing a removal and re-augmentation. Capsulation is covered as part of MYA’s aftercare and affects less than 1% of patients.

Removal and re-augmentation patients are advised to take 1 week off work and refrain from physical activities for 6 – 8 weeks post op. During this time, patients will also be required to wear a post-op bra. All post-op instructions will be very similar to your initial procedure so you are somewhat prepared as to what to expect.
