What is breast implant removal?

Known asbreast augmentation revision, reverse breast implant surgery or breast explants, breast implant removal in Turkey is a surgical procedure to remove silicone breast implants.

The process varies depending on the patient, but the surgery generally requires one or two days in hospital. In Turkey, patients will be asked to wear compression garments after cosmetic surgery to reduce swelling and support the breasts while they heal. There are also certain risks associated with the removal of breast implants.

More and more women are choosing not to replace their breast implants, or to have them replaced with smaller implants (and/or using fat), and this number is expected to increase. There are many factors involved in this decision, including age, health and lifestyle.

As implants last between 10 and 15 years, most women have to have their implants removed before they can be replaced. But more and more women are choosing not to have new implants fitted and are opting for other procedures instead. Here are the three main reasons why.

Reasons for removing breast implants

Medical issues

Reaction to the implant or surgery. Some women have to have their implants removed very soon after they are fitted for health reasons. Implants can become infected or cause other problems.

  • Calcium deposits. If calcium deposits build up in the breast, the implants will often have to be removed.
  • Breast cancer. In patients diagnosed with breast cancer, it is sometimes necessary to remove the implants to remove the tumour.
  • Rupture. Sometimes implants rupture or leak, necessitating their removal.

Some people may also request a revision or the removal of breast implants in Turkey because they have not entrusted their operation to a good doctor and have encountered avoidable complications. This is why we always recommend that our patients choose a board-certified Turkish plastic surgeon who is competent in the desired procedure, and ask questions during the consultation.

Lifestyle issues

Sometimes, having larger breasts can unexpectedly interfere with daily life, for example by causing discomfort when exercising. This category also includes people who have received their implants and have realised that they wanted them to be bigger or smaller than they were and now have to replace them.

More options

Originally, saline or silicone implants were the only option for people who wanted larger breasts. Today, breast lift and breast augmentation using your own fat can give amazing results. Some patients wish to have their implants removed in order to opt for one of these procedures.

What can you expect in Turkey?

The decision to no longer have implants cannot be taken without understanding the associated risks and expectations. When implants are placed, scar tissue, known as a capsule, forms. If the implants are not replaced, the capsule can also be removed. Saline implants can be deflated before removal. Turkish surgeons often use the same incision site to remove the implants as was used to place them, which minimises scarring. In general, the procedure takes about an hour and should be treated like any other surgical procedure.

Risks associated with breast implant removal surgery

The risks associated with breast augmentation revision surgery are similar to those of breast implant surgery itself and may include:

  • Infection
  • Scarring
  • Loss of sensation in the nipples
  • Anaesthetic complications
  • Settling of the site
  • Loose skin
  • Emotional and psychological problems

Depending on your age and state of health, the skin that has been stretched by the implants may not tighten completely, resulting in sagging or loosening of the skin. This problem can be resolved by a breast lift; sometimes the surgeon performs a breast lift at the same time as the removal of the implants to resolve this problem immediately. If you have any doubts, talk to your surgeon.

The pocket where the implant was placed will close over time, but it is important to follow the post-operative instructions exactly to avoid any infection or the risk of the pocket filling with fluid. A compression garment is recommended.
