The length of the Breast Implant Removal and Replacement procedure varies based on individual needs and the complexity of the case. Dr. Koo will discuss the estimated duration during your personalized consultation.

Typically, individuals can anticipate resuming work approximately 1 week post-surgery. Take it easy on the heavy workouts or strenuous activities for at least 6 weeks to facilitate a smooth recovery.

COMMON REASONS FOR BREAST IMPLANT REMOVAL OR REPLACEMENT

Many patients consider breast implant removal or replacement for various reasons, each unique to their personal journey. Common motivations include:

  • Change in Lifestyle: Lifestyle changes, such as shifts in fitness routines, pregnancy, or weight fluctuations, may prompt individuals to reevaluate their choice of breast implants.
  • Implant Aging: Over time, breast implants may show signs of aging, including changes in shape, firmness, or the development of complications.
  • Health Concerns: Health considerations, such as discomfort, pain, or the desire to address specific health issues related to implants, can drive the decision for removal or replacement.
  • Implant Rupture or Leakage: Rupture or leakage of breast implants can occur over time, necessitating removal and replacement for safety and aesthetic reasons.
  • Cosmetic Preferences: Evolving aesthetic preferences or a desire for a different breast size or shape may lead individuals to seek breast implant replacement.
  • Capsular Contracture: Capsular contracture, the tightening of scar tissue around the implant, can cause discomfort and distortion, prompting the need for corrective surgery.
