Procedure Overview

Typically, patients will have their breast implants for around 10-15 years and then opt for an implant removal and reaugmentation procedure to replace them with new breast implants. This is due to the natural changes that the female body undergoes during this time, such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss and ageing. 

What is Implant Removal Reaugmentation? 

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


Why Choose an Implant Removal & Reaugmentation Procedure? 

Patients who consider implant removal and reaugmentation surgery are typically wanting to change their breast implants for one of the following reasons: 

  • To increase or decrease the size of the breast implants 
  • Breast appearance has changed over a period of time 
  • Breast appearance has changed following childbirth  
  • Breast appearance has changed following weight loss 
  • Breast appearance has changed with age
  • Create a more symmetrical appearance 
  • Improve the shape of the breasts
  • Rupture or capsular contracture

Implant Removal & Reaugmentation Surgery

Every patient’s implant removal and reaugmentation journey is different, our specialist MYA surgeons will recommend the best implant size and placement for you based on your physical requirements, body shape, existing breast tissue and your desired result since your previous breast procedure.  

Implant removal and reaugmentation procedures are performed under general anaesthetic and take between 1-2 hours in theatre. Depending on the surgeon’s recommendations and your personal preference, there’s an option to be a day case patient or stay overnight to recover in one of our MYA hospitals.   

Patients should expect bruising and swelling to the breasts and surrounding areas and may experience tightness, discomfort and sensitivity following their procedure. Pain should subside after 7-14 days and pain relief will be prescribed to ease any discomfort.  


What breast implants do MYA use for Breast Reaugmentations?  

MYA use the highest quality implants, by Mentor, a company owned by Johnson & Johnson, recognised as one of the world’s most trusted companies. Each breast implant’s outer layer is made of silicone and is filled with a cohesive gel that holds together uniformly and retains a natural give that best resembles breast tissue. It is not an issue if your previous breast implants were a different implant provider, your dedicated MYA surgeon will discuss the Mentor implants available to you in more detail during your consultation.
