Breast implants: Guarantee

All European manufacturers of breast implants featuring the CE marking provide a 10-year guarantee if the breast implants rupture without any external cause. This applies to highly cohesive silicone implants as well as hydrogel implants and saline implants.

This guarantee insures your breast implants against damage to the wall that could lead to a tear, which means an additional surgical procedure is needed. If this happens, the manufacturer supplies two replacement breast prostheses free of charge, in the same size and profile as your original ones.

If you opt for Monobloc SoftOne® silicone implants, the Wellness Kliniek also provides a ten-year guarantee during which the operation (second procedure) to replace the implants will be carried out for free.

For Monobloc CMC Hydrogel® implants the manufacture provides a ten-year guarantee for ruptures. The Wellness Kliniek provides a one-year guarantee for the cost of a potential second procedure.

Are you in doubt as to whether your breast implants are still intact? MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) can help you find out. Bring the MRI along with the radiological report to the Wellness Kliniek so that we can plan a second procedure in accordance with the conditions of the guarantee. The MRI report is sent to the manufacturer in exchange for new prostheses.

Complications, such as rejection of the implant, an infection or excessive capsular contracture are not covered by the manufacturer's guarantee. If the implants must be replaced within a year the plastic surgeon will perform the procedure free of charge. You only pay the price of the replacement implants.

TOP destination : Premium Private Health Care in Belgium


All plastic surgeons and dentists are experts in their cosmetic field and are fully government registered in their medical specialty.

Wellness Kliniek Belgium stands for safe surgery. The hospital disposes of cabinets for aesthetic dental treatments, operating theatre rooms equipped with high-tech equipment for surgery, recovery care and private patient rooms.

Quality of care is assured. Wellness Kliniek Belgium carries the international standards organization quality certificate ISO 9001 / EN 15224 for all its medical and surgical activities. 

Rates are among the best in Europe and are all-care-inclusive, but they do not include any VAT. Since January 1, 2016, the VAT exemption for aesthetic surgery and treatments has changed. As a result of this change, the VAT exemption will be applicable only for treatments that aim at the 'medical care' of patients (and are as such included in the Belgian INAMI nomenclature). In the absence of such a target, 21 % VAT will be applied. Aesthetic dentistry remains exempt from VAT.

Planning your medical trip has never been easier! For people who have to travel a considerable distance, the clinic offers a unique Next-Day-Surgery service: your consultation and operation on consecutive days.
