Breast Implant Removal

More women today are opting to remove their breast implants for a variety of reasons.

Most breast implants [breast explant] have a warranty period of a decade, however, for some women, the decision to remove implants prior to their full-life span can depend on a number of factors including the way a patient ages, associated pain resulting from their original breast augmentation surgery or post-pregnancy changes to the breasts.

Some women also opt to replace them with a different size or shaped implant.

No matter the reason for your decision, Dr Chang can remove [and replace] the implants, or combine the new implants with a breast lift, known as a masto-augmentation. In most cases, Dr Chang will remove the implants through the original incision, however, an extended scar will likely be made during the process.

Our laser clinic also includes a complimentary post-recovery CARE program which includes LED Light Therapy [which reduces swelling and accelerates the healing of surgical scarring], a Société Clinical Oxygenation Treatment [which increases blood flow and circulation to the skin], and Fractional Laser Resurfacing [which minimises scarring and triggers collagen production].

DOWNTIME: Overnight surgery RECOVERY TIME: Initially 48 hours after surgery.  You will be required to wear a support bra for comfort while the swelling remains and during the healing process. Adhesive tape will be used to support the suture lines for a minimum of two weeks.
