Don’t live with unwanted implants out of fear of how your breasts will look without them. A breast explant can leave your breasts looking naturally beautiful.

A breast augmentation is one of the most common cosmetic procedures around the world. However, over time you may have grown tired of your implants or think it’s time for an update and require your implants to be removed.

Reasons for Getting Implants Removed

  • A rupture in the implant
  • Saggy breasts caused by the weight of the implant
  • The original surgery not giving you the results you desired
  • The implants have slipped into a lower position
  • The implants have become displaced causing breast distortion

Breast Explant and Replacement

Generally, patients request a breast implant removal when they are no longer happy with their breast augmentation. However, in the instance that you do not want to go back to having 100% natural breast contour, the procedure can be extended to have the original implant removed and then replaced with a new implant.

Breast Explant Without Replacement

If you have had a change in lifestyle and no longer desire your implants, our team can bring your breasts back to their original size and shape. Another option could be to combine a breast removal with a breast lift. This is becoming an increasingly popular procedure amongst breast explant patients.

The En Bloc technique

It is essential to preserve the shape of the original breast when performing breast implant removal surgery. The En Bloc technique is generally performed on ruptured implants or more complex cases.

An En Bloc procedure involves the removal of the capsule and the implant in one piece untouched. This is performed so that if the implant is ruptured, they can be removed without contaminating the body with silicone gel.  Visiting a well-trained plastic surgeon can ensure the En Bloc technique is performed correctly and at the highest quality possible.

Recovery Time After Breast Implant Removal

The recovery time after a breast explanation can vary but you can generally expect to return to your usual occupation within one to two weeks and return to your normal exercise routine within a month.
