Breast implant removal surgery is performed with the aim of removing breast implants that were placed either by breast augmentation or breast reconstruction. Sometimes, this procedure can be used to revise the shape and size of breast implants. Breast implants are not lifelong, and it is important to have them exchanged or removed approximately every 10-15 years.

Who Can Have Breast Implant Removal Surgery?

  • Women with implant complications.
  • Women who feel like their breast implants have the wrong shape or size. 
  • Women who breast infections or who are experiencing leakage of silicone.

Breast Implant Removal Surgery Duration

Breast Implant Removal Surgery takes 1 - 2 hours.

Breast Implant Removal Surgery Side Effects

  • Breast sensation becomes less sensitive, which may last up to six months.
  • Development of thick, red, and painful scars which may last for a few years.
  • Numbness of the breast area.
  • Breast deformity or sagging of the breast area.

Breast Implant Removal Recovery Time

In general, recovery from breast implant removal surgery is normally 4 to 6 weeks. Patients need to take a couple of weeks off work. Patients are recommended to resume normally after 6 weeks.

Breast Implant Removal Treatment Success Rate 

The breast Implant Removal procedure has a success rate of 75–90%.

How does it work?

Once you have decided to undergo breast implant removal surgery, we will make sure that you have a pleasant trip and that your procedure will be customized in a way that minimizes scarring. During the online consultations, expect the following questions:

  • Are the implants leaking or have they lost their shape?
  •  Do you want to replace your breast implants?
  • Do you have any medical conditions that we should be aware of?
  • Are you currently taking any medication?

Planning your trip and choosing the clinic

When you decide to have a breast implant removal surgery, our first step will be to present to you several detailed options for clinics and doctors. After you have chosen your preferred clinic and doctor, we will then set up an operation date and arrange your trip. All the dates are set according to your preferences!

This surgery is usually performed in the morning or afternoon, so we always recommend that you arrive in Turkey a day before the surgery –so that you can have enough time to rest.

Final Consultation with Your Surgeon

When you arrive at the clinic, you will have a face-to-face consultation with your breast implant removal surgery. Part of the discussions will be about your expectations and goals.

Medical Examinations

Before the surgery commences, your surgeon will conduct physical and blood tests to make sure that you are in a good health state. Every patient is required to undergo medical tests so as to ensure that nothing can hinder the success of the surgery.

Preparation for Surgery

To make you feel comfortable during the surgery, your surgeon will give you local anesthesia. If you have Trypanophobia (fear of needles), you should let us know so that we can offer you doctors who can give you anesthesia without using needles.

What Does Breast Implant Removal Surgery Involve?

During the breast implant removal procedure, the surgeon may simply remove the breast implants or revise their shape and size of them. This usually varies from one patient to the other, and it depends on the patient’s desired outcome.

But in most cases, patients who have had breast implant surgery will ultimately need another breast implant revision procedure.  The breast removal surgery often involves the following steps:

Breast implant removal only:  Incisions will be made in the same place as where the breast implant surgery was performed.  If you are suffering from capsular contracture, they will remove the hardened capsules to accelerate the healing process

Breast implant removal with a breast lift:  Your Plastic Surgeon may perform a breast lift at the same time as your breast implant removal if your breast skin has been stretched or sagged.  They will remove any excess breast skin and tighten your breast tissue to provide better support.  In some cases, your Plastic Surgeon may also resize your areolas to better fit your breast's new shape.

Deflation: If your breast implants are saline, your Plastic Surgeon may choose to deflate them without undergoing surgery and can occur in their office under local anesthesia.  Depending on the results of this you may need to have further surgery, including a breast lift or breast implant replacement surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Can I have a Breast Implant Removal in conjunction with a Breast Lift?

Yes, you can. This is actually a good combination for people who want smaller size of breasts but want them to look attractive.

Does this procedure have any other benefits?

Breast implant removal surgery can address a variety of concerns, including capsular contracture, implant malfunction, and dissatisfaction with breast size.

Is this a complicated surgery?

Sometimes a breast implant removal procedure can be more complicated than a breast implant replacement.  In some cases, breast implant removal is more prone to infection and bleeding.

Is it possible to have your breasts look natural after removing your implants?

Unlikely. After removing breast implants, it’s very unlikely that the breasts will look natural without some kind of revision surgery like a breast lift.

Are Silicone Breast Implants safe?

In general, silicone breast implants are safe, but a small portion of them may be damaged and deformed over the years, requiring a new breast augmentation surgery. They can also make breast cancer screening more difficult.

    While doing a price search for plastic surgery in my own country, I came across flymedi and had my surgery at esteworld for a much more reasonable price and I am very happy. The team and flymedi were very professional.

    Ana was extremely helpful, friendly and made planning my trip so much easier. I don't know what I would have done without her! Going overseas to a country you've never been to before to get plastic surgery can be scary, having Ana made it a lot less scary knowing you have somebody there that's on your team to help you.

    From start to finish my experience with Flymedi was exceptional. The coordinator, Abud worked hard at finding the right surgeon for me. He was constantly in contact while I was away to ensure everything went smoothly. I honestly could not be happier with the company. Dr Ozge has done an exceptional job too. Thank you Abud for making me feel confident again!

    I highly recommended Mustafa was good assistance all the way through. From airport, hotel, and hospital. The surgeon who conduct the operation did a great job. I was hesitant at first and was scared what would be the result but waking up after the surgery I was surprised by his professionalism. As well as Mustafa was being present every time I needed him out anytime I could contacted him. He never fails. Thanks to Y'ALL guys.
