Breast Implant Removal

Removal of breast implants are becoming increasingly more common. While research is still being conducted on Breast Implant Associated Illness in relation to some varieties of implants, many women attribute feelings of soreness and lethargy towards their implants.

Breast Lift Surgery?

You should be in good physical health prior to surgery, as well as at your ideal weight – as weight gain or loss can impact your breast tissue and size.

Your doctor will advise you regarding any medications that need to be ceased, including herbal supplements such as ginkgo and St John’s Wort. You will be required not to smoke or vape for several weeks prior to your procedure. You may be given antibiotics prior to surgery. We recommend preparing an appropriate recovery room at home including bedding, ice packs and a thermometer, and a loved one should stay with you for 24 hours. You will be given compression garments to wear and must avoid strenuous activity or heavy lifting. You should expect your breasts to be swollen and bruised for around 2 weeks following your surgery.

What Are The Risks?
