Book your consultation

Breast explant surgery

The first step is to book a consultation with Dr John Flynn. With years of experience in plastic and cosmetic surgery, he will provide you with a comprehensive assessment of your circumstances to formulate appropriate treatment plans.

The process

This surgery is performed under general anaesthesia and can take between one to three hours depending on your circumstances.

An incision will be made in the same place where your implants were originally inserted, and the implant will be removed.
The effects of removal will depend on your skin tissue and its natural elasticity.

To perform the lift component of the surgery, excess skin will be removed, and the remaining will be tightened to give your breasts an appearance as similar as they were before surgery. If necessary, your areolas can also be resized to match your new breast shape.

Breast explant recovery

The recovery process is likely to consist of some downtime while the swelling and tenderness fade during the healing process. Patients should be able to return to work and other daily activities within 10 – 14 days’ post-operation.
