Breast Implant Removal

What to Expect After Breast Implant Removal in Sydney

After breast implant removal procedure, you should expect little disruption to your normal routine. You may feel a bit groggy or disorientated for a short time after the procedure, because of the anaesthetic, and you should have a chaperone with you to help you get home, as driving is out of the question.

Expect some mild discomfort around the affected area in the weeks following the removal and expect to spend at least one week off work.

Breast Implant Removal and Replacement

Patients usually request a breast implant removal when they are no longer happy with their current level of augmentation. This decision does not mean, however, that they necessarily want to go back to having a 100% natural breast contour.

If you decide to resize your breasts, Dr Ellis Choy can conduct a slightly more extended procedure, during which a second set of implants is inserted.

Breast Implant Removal without Replacement

In many cases, however, the patient will only go for a straightforward breast implant removal with no replacement. This procedure will bring the breast back to its original size and shape, as closely as is possible.

Another option is to combine breast implant removal with a breast lift procedure. This combination is becoming increasingly popular among patients in Australia.

To discuss these possibilities and to find out if this option will work for you and your situation, raise this with Dr Choy and his team during your consultation. More information will help you to understand the procedure better and the results you can expect.

Breast Implant Removal Cost

Breast implant removal costs are difficult to calculate without first having a consultation. While breast implant removal could be a complicated procedure, there are a number of different elements involved. Each of these elements has its own cost component and contributes to the total cost of the procedure.

These include the following:

  • Surgical team
  • Anaesthetist’s fees
  • Theatre fees
  • Cost of implant replacement (if required)
  • Consultation and follow up session costs

These elements combined make up the full price for a breast implant removal procedure.

Because each patient and each situation is different, it is difficult to determine the precise cost of your breast implant removal procedure. We can give you a clearer picture after you have had your initial consultation with Dr Ellis Choy and his team.

Recovery times vary after breast implant removal, but you should expect the following;

  • 1-2 weeks for swelling and discomfort to reduce
  • 1-2 weeks to return to work (non-physical labour)
  • 4 weeks at least before returning to heavy exercise, such as lifting or extended cardio sessions

Remember that these time-lines are just for guidance and that your personal situation may vary. Dr Choy will be able to give you more information during your follow up procedure.

You are also encouraged to contact the team at any time if you feel any unusual discomfort or pain during recovery, or if you have any concerns at all. It is always better to err on the side of caution.
