Breast Implant Removal.

Offered in Sydney, a Breast Explant is a Plastic Surgery procedure which involves Breast Implants being removed.  This procedure is also known as Breast Revision Surgery, Capsulectomy, Augmentation Reversal and Breast Implant Removal. While motivations for Breast Explants vary from client to client, most women opt for this procedure due to preference changes. In other cases, clients feel their implants are no longer in the best position due to weight loss, weight gain or pregnancies. In rare cases, some clients choose to remove their Breast Implants after experiencing implant complications or implant-related illness.

    Breast Implant Removal Recovery.

    Recovery periods vary from person to person; however, clients must rest for 5 days after their Breast Explant and allow 6 weeks for post-surgery recovery. Healing is an individual process but a full recovery generally takes place over 3 – 6 months. During this time, the breasts will settle into their new position. Scars generally begin to fade after 3 – 4 months. 

    Breast Implant Removal Risks.

    When considering any surgical procedure, it is important to understand that despite choosing a skilled plastic surgeon, receiving care in a premium hospital, and following recovery protocols, all surgical procedures carry risk and complications can still occur.

    Your Surgeon Consultation

    Your Surgeon Consultation

    Today you will meet with your Plastic Surgeon to discuss your desired outcomes and plan your procedure. Your Surgeon will assess your body composition, breast anatomy and reasons for seeking a Breast Explant before recommending the best approach for you. 

    Your Plastic Surgery

    Your Plastic Surgery

    Your surgery will take place in one of our state-of-the-art, accredited private hospitals. You will be placed under general anaesthetic for the duration of the procedure (1 – 3 hours). Once complete and assuming good health, most of our patients can return home 2 to 3 hours after they wake.

    Veneer Review and Refinement

    Your Recovery Period

    Plan for 5-7 days of rest after surgery. Most clients experience only minimal discomfort. The exception being clients who have capsular contracture or clients
    undergoing an Explant with a Breast Lift.  After the first week, you’ll be able to resume driving. You’ll wear a post-surgical support garment for 6 weeks, and your Surgeon will advise when you can reintroduce exercise.

    Frequently Asked Questions.

    A great decision starts with great questions; so ask us as many as you can to see if Breast Explant or Breast Implant Removal is right for you. To help you get started, here are the answers to the questions we’re most commonly asked.

    Can I Breastfeed After Breast Implant Removal Surgery?

    Yes. The breast tissue which contains lobules remains intact and therefore does not interfere with the ability to breastfeed. 

    What is the likelihood I could have Breast Implant Illness (BII)?

    Based on cases currently reported in Australia, 1 in 86,000 people suffer from Breast Implant Illness (BII), so the condition is very rare. In many cases, surgery to remove the breast implants (Breast Explant) improves or completely resolves all BII symptoms. 

    How much time will I need off work after Breast Implant Removal Surgery?

    Generally, our clients are able to return to work within 1 – 2 weeks after their Breast Explant. However, everyone has a different journey (and a different style of work) so your own recovery time may vary. As with all aspects of your recovery, your Surgeon will provide you with personalised advice.

    Will I be in a lot of Pain after a Breast Plant Removal?

    Pain levels after a Breast Explant will vary; however, we find that a recovery for a Breast Explant is generally smoother than that of a Breast Augmentation.

    As a guide, most clients experience only minimal discomfort in the days following surgery. However, clients who have experienced capsular contracture may experience more discomfort & a slightly longer recovery. Clients who undergo an Explant with a Breast Lift may feel tight & heavy for a few weeks. This is a normal part of the healing process.  Your surgeon will prescribe medication to manage discomfort. 


    How long does Breast Explant surgery take?

    Between 1-3 hours is the standard time duration for Breast Implant removal surgery.  If combining a Breast Explant with a Breast Lift, your surgery can take up to 5 hours. 

    As with every procedure operating times can vary, so the timings for your procedure will be advised by your Surgeon.

    Do I need a support garment after my Breast Explant?

    Yes, for optimal healing after your Breast Explant, post-surgery support garments must be worn for 6 weeks.

    When can I start Exercising after a Breast Explant?

    Your Surgeon will be able to advise on this. However, as a guide clients can usually resume normal activities and moderate exerciese after 6 weeks. We recommend our Breast Explant clients avoid heavy lifting, strenuous exercise & swimming until the surgeon advises.

    Will I have more scarring if I have my Breast Implant Removed?

    Your Surgeon will be able to advise on this. However, typically, Breast Explants can be performed using your previous incision sites. However, if the client is also undergoing a Breast Lift, additional incisions may be needed.
