Not everyone has perfect breasts, and even a woman with breast implants or one with naturally good aesthetics may be unhappy with the breast area. It’s a personal choice whether you want to have an implant or to live with what you have. However, many women don’t feel the need for an implant, but look for surgery after pregnancy, weight change, or unfavorable hormonal factors. After giving birth and breastfeeding a baby, the breasts commonly become saggy and loose, inevitably making many women’s confidence to fall. Choosing breast surgery will typically help you attain a firmer, better shaped and more beautiful breast.
Many women still choose to have a breast implant once they have had the breast uplift service. But, before going for this, one has to be clear that breast implants don’t last a lifetime. Sometimes they don’t last 10-years. It is also commonly required that they are removed or replaced every 10 to 15 years. In many cases, people opt for Breast Implant Removal due to different sizes and shapes that have occurred. If you are considering this procedure, Philip Turton’s specialist breast clinic is sharing a closer look at what you can expect from having your implant taken out.
Firstly, you have to understand what is involved in the procedure of breast implant removal. Whether you are experiencing a complication, simply removing it or going for an explant, the procedure is generally the same, with the exception of how to manage the scar tissue (the capsule) and whether to re-shape the breast at the same time. A doctor specialised in pain control and anesthesia (anaesthetist) gives you the optimal medicine which will keep you fully asleep and pain free during the procedure. This approach, to be done completely safely, should be under the observation of a senior consultant anaesthetist only. Then Your surgeon will proceed by making an incision to remove the implant. After the procedure is completed to the correct standard, any reshaping is done, and then the incision is closed according to the best technique.
As this process is a formal in-patient operation, you will be admitted to the hospital, except in a few circumstances of more minor surgery. The admissions team usually suggest you come along with a relative or close friend for drop off and collection. Due to some effects of anaesthesia, you need someone to drive you home. After the procedure, the doctor may recommend medicine including antibiotics and simple analgesia and a strict care plan for a few weeks. You are supposed to wear a special support bra or a compression garment to reduce swelling, which Mr Turton will advise.
After Breast Implant Removal, you have to avoid doing a few activities for a number of weeks- for example, lifting weights and daily chores and any intense exercise. Otherwise this can increase the swelling and cause a major issue. It will be better to take a rest until you feel completely fine and you have had your post-operative consultation with your surgeon, for better advice. Consult your healthcare advisor if you feel feverish, get acute pain, bleeding or any other complication. An experienced surgeon will advise you best on the management of different complications. Therefore, it is always suggested to contact a reputable and highly-skilled surgeon to mitigate risk.
