Dr Charlotte Ying speaks on the most commonly asked questions about the Breast Surgery process and what you can expect when you visit EYDIS Aesthetics.

How Long Do Breast Implants Last?

Breast implant removal is surgery to take out silicone or saline implants. Typically, breast implants last for about 10 to 15 years. Some people have implant removal surgery because of tissue hardening around the implant or other complications. Others may have surgery to replace old implants with new ones.

Why Get a Breast Implant Removal?

One of the most common reasons that breast implants may need to be removed or replaced is because scar tissue can harden around the implants. It can cause pain and discomfort, and also change the implants’ appearance. This is known as capsular contracture.

What Are The Reasons To Get A Breast Implant Removal?

Some people also have their breast implants removed because their breasts have changed over time, affecting the look of the implants. Age, pregnancy, and breastfeeding can all change the shape, size, and weight of the breasts. And sometimes people simply don’t want to have their implants anymore, or have different cosmetic goals and want to change their implant size.

Other Reasons Can Be:

  • Pain or disfigurement
  • The implants being too close together (synmastia)
  • Implant rupture
  • Size change
  • Double bubble deformity

What Happens To My Breasts Afterwards?

It is common for the breast to be deflated afterwards.  This can be because of having a large implant in previously or the laxity of your skin due to aging since insertion or having had children.

What to expect after removal of breast implant surgery

  • Removal of breast implant surgery is usually done as a day case under general anaesthetic. Most patients can go home the same day with a support person.
  • When you wake up after the operation you should have minimal pain as local anaesthetic will have been administered into the area. The anaesthetic lasts for about 6-12 hours.
  • Pain/discomfort varies considerably from person to person. Medication to relieve pain will be prescribed.
  • There may or may not be drains inserted to minimise swelling.
  • There will be swelling and bruising after breast implant removal surgery.
  • Most patients return to work after 4-7 days, depending on the nature of work. More physically demanding jobs will take slightly longer to return to.
  • No lifting and no exercising for 4-6 weeks. Contact sports can usually resume after about 6 weeks.

Possible risks and complications:

All surgeries carry risk. Although uncommon, it is important that all patients understand the possible risks and complications associated with breast implant removal surgery. These will be discussed in detail with you during your consultation with Dr Ying, and include, but are not limited to:

Bruising, swelling, pain, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, asymmetrical results, seroma, skin loss, skin loosening, stretchmarks, haematoma, bleeding, wrinkling, infection, undercorrection/overcorrection, changes in sensation, poor scarring, nerve damage, wound breakdown, allergic reactions, stroke and/or heart attack, and atelectasis.
