Breast Implant Revision

We have extensive experience in performing Breast Implant Revision Surgery for a variety of cases.

Often the wrong type of implant or the wrong shape implants have been used, or the implants are too big, too small. We have found that with Overseas Surgery for Breast Augmentation Surgery generally a “production line” approach is used where the same type and size of implants are used on each patient, generally with poor results.

In some patients the breast implants have “encapsulated” where the patient’s body has rejected the implants which require the original implant (or implants) to be removed and replaced.

Surgical Warning: Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

What is Breast Implant Revision surgery?

Implant Revision Surgery is the replacement of your existing breast implants and it involves a no obligation consultation with one of our Surgeons who you can discuss your concerns and problems.

Our Surgeons first understand your problem, your requirements and your expectations and then make recommendations to ensure that your Implant Revision surgery fulfils your expectations.

What should I expect after Implant Revision Surgery?

After your procedure, you may experience some discomfort and drowsiness due to the anaesthetic. It is important to have someone drive you home and stay with you for at least the first night. Rest is crucial in the initial stages of recovery. However, full recovery may take several weeks and may include swelling, bruising, and restricted activity. We will provide detailed post-operative care instructions to aid your recovery. You are provided with an after hours direct number in the event you may have any questions or concerns you wish to speak to us about.

The next day or within a few days you must come back to the Clinic for your first post-operative check.

After some initial swelling and tightness over the first few days after your procedure, you should start to see the shape of your breasts or the new shape if different size or shape implants have been used by our Surgeons. As with your initial surgery you would be aware that further changes may occur over the next few months as your body adjusts to the implants.

We recommend avoiding strenuous activity for around three weeks, but from six weeks or so you will be able to return to any exercise routines you had before. Our Surgeons and Nurses will continue to monitor your recovery through a number of post-operative check-ups and are available at any time if you have questions or concerns.
