Breast implant removal and reaugmentation is a surgical procedure in which a patients 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:
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 reaugmentation 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.
*There is no guarantee of specific outcomes so individual results and experiences can vary from person to person.
