Breast Implant Removal / Replacement

Is Breast Implant Removal or Replacement right for you?

We help you decide.

There are a number of concerns facing patients today who have had breast implants and are considering the possibility of having them removed.

Some of the concerns voiced by patients regarding their breast implants are as follows:

  • Too large and heavy and no longer suit their body shape
  • Sagging after weight loss, pregnancy or breast feeding
  • Shoulder, neck and upper back pain and headaches
  • Concerns regarding Breast Implant Associated ALCL (rare immune cancer)
  • Concerns regarding possible rupture or loss of integrity of the implants

Breast implant removal surgery can be very complex depending on the type of breast implants originally placed, whether or not the implant is ruptured and for how long the implant has been ruptured. The position of the breast implant: over or under the muscle also affects the surgery decision making process as well as if capsular contracture is present and the Grade of the capsular contracture. Just as important are the emotional and psychological concerns involved in removing breast implants.

Dr Konrat will assist you to make the choice that is right for you as an individual and also one that is the best choice for your health and well being going forward. Our patients not only need our advice but need out support throughout what can be a very challenging process for most patients.
