Replacement of Breast Implants

If you are considering replacement of your breast implants with silicone implants please read on and then you may want to open and read my full information sheet that can be found at the end of this page or in the information sheet section on the home page.


In summary

I perform exchange of breast implants regularly in my practice and use the implants manufactured by Allergan or Mentor (information on each company can be found on the download sheet). They are world renowned for the safety and construction of their implants. I use implants that have a texture to their surface as this has been shown to help reduce the incidence of a tight band of tissue, called a capsular contracture, forming around them.

They can be round or shaped as your preference and the type of the previous implants and we will have a full discussion about size in my consultation clinic. There are also different way to place the implant and this can be under the breast alone or under the chest wall muscle called Pectoralis major. Depending on if the implants have been placed under or on top of your chest muscle, you may have drains and may have to stay in one night at the hospital. I have a preference to put the surgical cut in the fold that is naturally under the breast.
Many of the hospitals in which I work have operation packages in place and allow for a nights stay in the package cost. The packages mean that you do not need to worry about any other costs from your admission to discharge.

I also can remove the implant and enhance the breasts with your own fat. Please see the operation menu on breast enlargement with fat (lipofilling). This would have to be fully discussed in my consultation clinic, as this is only suitable for a certain size and shape breast, but would then prevent the need for further silicone breast implants.

Please contact my secretary or the hospital of your choice for a discussion about Breast enlargement and they will be very happy to let you know about all your care.
