The breast implant removal surgery

Breast implant revision is administered by a specialist plastic surgeon trained in all aspects of reconstructive and cosmetic surgery as this is much more difficult surgery than the primary augmentation procedure. We may need to reshape, resize or remove existing breast implants. The procedure improves the shape and appearance of breasts previously augmented years ago and may also require additional procedures such as fat grafting and mastopexy or breast lift.

The details of this procedure vary, depending on the reason the individual is considering Breast Revision surgery. Generally, local Queensland plastic surgeon A/Prof Magnusson must remove the breast implant(s) and recreate an enhanced implant pocket that correctly supports the new breast implant(s) for women of Toowoomba, Brisbane and the Gold Coast.

A/Prof Magnusson will generally use an incision underneath the breast for the procedure, removing the original scar and creating a new incision in this location. Scars from prior procedures will often leave contour deformities that may also be addressed at the same time.

The implant removal or replacement procedure which also commonly include a breast lift/mastopexy to address ptosis/droop.

Replacing the implant with fat grafting can be used to reshape the and address some of the deformities and emptiness that will result from removal of the implant alone. This is an especially popular procedure for someone who feels they don’t wish to have implants any longer but are concerned about the volume loss in the upper part of the breast particularly with implant removal alone.
