During breast implant revision, we replace the current implants with high-quality, new implants. On average, the procedure takes 45 minutes. During this, you will be given a light sleep anaesthetic or narcosis. We make the incision as small as possible, 2 to 3 centimetres.

A revision of breast implants can have several reasons. Perhaps you are no longer happy with the size of your prostheses or you no longer like the shape or profile for whatever reason. A crack or hardening in old (unsafe) breast implants can also be a reason.

Every reason is personal and you can count on understanding from the highly qualified team of top surgeons at Wellness Kliniek. The surgeon will discuss breast revision and prosthesis change options during a personal consultation.

Increase cup size or decrease cup size?

The main reason for ladies to opt for breast implant replacements is because of current size and/or shape. You may be ready for a larger cup size or just a smaller cup size. A body changes throughout life and you may find that the size of your breasts does not fit the rest of your body (anymore).

Gaining weight, losing weight, pregnancy and its hormones can affect the shape and size of your breasts. Should you want to lose weight, it is recommended to do so before surgery implants replacement.

Problems with current implants?

Do you suffer from capsular contracture or have other discomforts due to your current breast implants? Then book a no-obligation consultation for professional advice from a surgeon. Replacing current breast implants with quality and the safest implants on the market is among the options.

Replacing implants as a precaution?

You may also have doubts about the quality of your current implants. In the media, you sometimes hear stories about a leaking breast prosthesis. Leaking breast implants mainly occur in prostheses placed in the 1990s or earlier. The breast implants used today are of excellent quality.

Of course, it is always a good idea to have your prostheses checked from time to time. Checking implants? The surgeons at Wellness Kliniek can do that for you.

European implant manufacturers give a 10-year guarantee against leakage. Changing implants every 10 years is recommended by surgeons at Wellness Kliniek to minimise the risk of cracks and leaks.

Remove implants?

Would you rather have your implants removed? That too is possible. After removing the breast implants, the breasts will look more or less as they did before the breast augmentation. Of course, the skin may have sagged and the breasts may have started to droop more, a natural consequence of ageing. In that case, breast implant removal can be combined with a breast lift.

Frequently asked questions about breast implant replacement

Recovery breast implant replacement, what can I expect?

No overnight stay is generally required after surgery. Most women feel some discomfort. Recovery from surgery breast implants replacement takes 4 to 7 days. You will wear compression bandages for 12 days and should not do heavy lifting or exercise for about six weeks. The final result (indentation of new breast implants maximising results) is visible within 6 months.

When to replace silicone implants?

If your implants are 10 years old, if the current breast implants bother you or if you want to change the current cup size, you can have silicone implants replaced or removed. Also if you would like to change shape. In exceptional cases, replacing silicone implants is a necessity rather than a wish.

Why do breast implants sometimes need to be removed or changed?

In some cases, the body forms a hard capsule around the implant: the breasts become hard and hurt. Usually, the surgeon can remove the capsule under intravenous anaesthesia. Unfortunately, sometimes the implants are damaged and need to be replaced.

The body may also reject the implants. Rejection and capsule formation are rare. Usually, everything goes smoothly and you have years of pleasure from new implants.

When to replace Mentor implants?

On 20 October 2021, a general safety warning was issued about Mentor Smooth Round Saline implants. A small portion had a manufacturing defect, which could cause them to leak. Wellness Kliniek surgeons did not use these implants with manufacturing defects. Have you had Mentor implants placed elsewhere and have doubts about the quality? Then get checked and advised by a surgeon at Wellness Kliniek.

When to remove breast capsule when replacing breast implants?

Encapsulation causes the breasts to feel harder. It is not dangerous, but can cause pain. Fortunately, the risk of excessive encapsulation is not very high.

Excessive encapsulation may need to be removed when placing new breast implants. The surgeon at Wellness Kliniek will examine you first for this and remove the breast capsule during surgery if this is necessary replacing old breast implants.

Is breast implant replacement safe?

Breast implant revision is normally a low-risk operation. Moreover, the surgeons use the best brands of implants on the market and match the best implant based on your needs and physique.

The surgeons at Wellness Kliniek have a lot of experience and Wellness Kliniek Belgium has been number 1 in the list of best experience and plastic surgery clinics for years, according to (independent) research by WhatClinic.
