What Is Breast Implant Surgery?
Implants are a form of prostheses that are inserted into the breasts to achieve a desired look and feel. Most women want implants that are under 500ccs. In rough terms, 250ccs of material equates to an extra cup size. In some cases, our surgeons will approve implants that are over 500ccs in size.
Our surgeons are pioneers of the MIBIS (Minimally Invasive Breast Implant Surgery) technique, which allows them to insert implants whilst creating minimal post-operative scar tissue. They create small incisions that are around 2 to 3cms in size and insert the implants.
Breast implant surgery allows women to feel more comfortable in their body. Visit our breast implant page for more information about the surgery and recovery period.
Why Do Women Remove their Breast Implants?
There are lots of reasons why women seek breast implant removal and exchange surgery.
Capsular contractures are one of the most common implant issues that women face today. Capsular contractures occur when the patient’s body recognises the presence of a foreign object and creates scar tissue around the implant. Over time, the scar tissue develops into a capsule that tightens and can become extremely painful.
A small minority of women will be allergic to their breast implants. Allergic reactions can cause painful infections that can put a halt to day-to-day activities. In these cases, affected women will experience physical and mental fatigue. We recommend removing implants immediately if any signs of infection become apparent.
We offer our patients a 10-year warranty on all silicone, saline, and hydrogel implants. You can choose between industry-leading brands like Arion, Mentor, and Motiva. Implants are not designed to last forever. Most removal and exchange surgeries are due to implants expiring.
What Happens if You Have Breast Implants Removed?
Each and every woman will have a different experience after their breast implant removal procedure. There are lots of factors that can affect how your post-operative breasts look. If you have undergone significant changes whilst your implants are in, your post-operative breasts will reflect that.
Life changes like weight fluctuations, menopause, and pregnancy can alter the appearance of your breasts. When your implants are still in, these changes might not be as noticeable. Once our surgeons remove your implants, you may see some sagginess and droopiness.
Women with smaller implants will see less sagging in their post-operative breasts. Women with implants that are 500cc or larger will experience more droopiness than those with smaller implants.

Breast Implant Removal and Exchange Recovery
Breast implant removal recovery is different for everyone. Every woman will experience different levels of pain, fatigue, and soreness after surgery. You can expect to experience discomfort in the first few weeks and months after surgery.
You will not be able to move your upper body as you normally do in the first weeks and months after surgery. This is why it is important to avoid strenuous activity. Our nurses and surgeons will give you a full breakdown of the activities you should avoid and how to best heal after removal surgery.
If you opt for breast implant exchange surgery, you will have already experienced the symptoms that come along with the procedure. Breast implant surgery patients must be conscientious about their bandages and sutures. They may also have to drain their implants if necessary. Our recovery team gives each patient the aftercare information they need to have a successful recovery.
How Much Does Breast Implant Removal and Exchange Surgery Cost?
We understand that some women save a lifetime to afford the breast augmentation of their dreams. At Wellness Kliniek, our breast implant removal and exchange prices are comprehensive. The anaesthesia, medical fee, and wake-up period are included in the cost of the surgery.
We make sure to provide our customers with different options to suit every budget. Our patients can also choose between a sliding scale of extras and supplements to make their post-operative experience more comfortable.
Some patients commit to travel obligations too soon after surgery. In the hours and days immediately after surgery, it is important to relax and give your body the time it needs to recover. Our patients can book a private room or even an overnight stay in a private room to increase their chance of a painless recovery period.
