Breast implants aren't designed to last a lifetime and typically will need replacing after around 10-15 years. Patients usually opt for implant removal and replacement surgery because the shape of their breasts has changed. This happens over time as the body undergoes natural changes such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss and ageing.

Breast implant removal and reaugmentation surgery involves the removal of the original breast implants along with any internal scar tissue, then 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.
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
Every patient’s breast 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.
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.
Take the first step in your MYA journey by having a video eConsult from the convenience of your own home with one of our eConsult advisors.
