Breast Implant Removal And Replacement (Capsulectomy)

Breast implant removal and breast implant replacement involves exchanging the implants in the breast for newer ones.

This procedure is sometimes accompanied by a Capsulectomy – removing the scar tissue that may have built up around the implant, before the new implant is put in place.

Many people who have had breast augmentation keep their implants for a very long time. The most common reasons for removal, with or without replacement of implants, are for a change in size (usually bigger, but sometimes smaller), capsular contracture (symptomatic capsule formation) or implant rupture.

Most women will have new implants re-inserted either alone or in combination with uplift surgery and / or fat transfer, although some may decide they do not want the implants to be replaced. Miss Breahna will discuss all these options with you during your consultation and support you through this process, whichever decision you may choose to take.

Breast Implant Removal Procedure

Breat implant removal and replacement is typically performed through the same incisions which were made during the initial breast augmentation procedure. Performing a Capsulectomy could also be necessary when having implants exchanged. The body will naturally develop scar tissue around the implant, known as a ‘capsule’, which can harden and cause discomfort and alter the shape of the breast. Capsulectomy can address issues related to the look and feel of the breast and help to alleviate pain.

Benefits of Breast Implant Replacement

The benefits of replacing the breast implants include addressing any issues with the look and feel of the implants, changing the cup size and position of the implants if desired and upgrading the quality of the implants, taking advantage of updated technologies.

After your surgery you should expect to stay in hospital for 2 – 3 days. You will need to take it easy for around 2 weeks after the operation, when you will be able to return to work and driving, dependent on medical advice and follow-up consultation.

Further follow-up consultations will be arranged at 6 weeks, 3 months, 6 months and 1 year post surgery to closely monitor your physical well-being.

Frequently asked questions

If you wish to change the size of your implants (go bigger or smaller), experience symptoms related to hardening or rupture of your implants, or simply have decided that you no longer require them, then you may be suitable for this treatment.

Due to the popularity of breast augmentation, implant replacement and capsulectomy is a commonly performed procedure and considered to be safe. Your welfare is paramount to us and these operations are performed by Miss Breahna, a skilled surgeon who specialises in this field.

No pain will be felt during the operation itself as general anaesthetic will be used. For the recovery period, post treatment, a suitable course of pain relief will be prescribed to help with any discomfort.

As with breast augmentation, the removal and replacement of implants will also see swelling and bruising for a few weeks post treatment. Infection, bleeding (haematoma), seroma, delayed healing, loss of nipple, poor scarring and asymmetry are infrequent risks.

The procedure may incur a period of 2 weeks recovery time to allow for successful healing, and time off work may be required. Driving will be possible after 2 weeks. It may need up to 3 weeks before travelling abroad and up to 12 weeks before returning to the gym.
