Breast implant removal/replacement surgery is performed on women for a variety of reasons, including improving aesthetics or treating a problem with their existing breast implants.

Some people’s breast and body appearances have altered over time as a result of age, pregnancy, breastfeeding, or weight loss, and they want their breasts to look more aesthetically acceptable again. The majority of women seeking breast implant removal/replacement  want natural-looking outcomes to improve or restore the harmony between their breasts and their entire body proportion.

How do I know if I’m suitable for this surgery?

You are eligible for breast implant removal/replacement surgery if you are over 18, generally healthy, not overweight, and a nonsmoker. Some women who want to remove their breast implants may need a combination of procedures to either replace the implant with a new one (implant exchange), replace it with their own fat (autologous fat transfer), or remove breast tissue (breast auto-augmentation).

Some ladies may be willing to go smaller and hence be good candidates for a breast uplift. You may also need a capsulectomy (removal of the capsule around your implant) or a capsulotomy (division of the capsule) if you have an issue with capsular contracture from a previous implant. During your appointment, you will be told if breast augmentation surgery is right for you.

So what size would be suitable for me?

The size of your breast implants will be determined by your body frame and chest wall measurements acquired during your consultation. If you want to expand the size of your implant (within reason), the pocket can be stretched during surgery. If you need a smaller implant, you may need a breast elevation at the same time to make the pocket smaller during surgery.
