If only implants are removed and replaced with new ones, pain will be minimal.
If implants and capsules (scar tissue) are removed, the discomfort will be similar to the discomfort experienced after the initial augmentation procedure.
Post-operative discomfort should be controlled with oral medication.
The patient may be discharged in a loose dressing.
Dissolvable sutures are usually used.
Light activities can be resumed as tolerated. Aerobic activities can be started in about 4-6 weeks as advised by Dr. Alexander.
An additional procedure that might enhance the result is a Breast Lift (mastopexy).
The specific risks and the suitability of this procedure for a given individual can be determined only at the time of consultation. All surgical procedures have some degree of risk. Minor complications that do not affect the outcome occur occasionally. Major complications are rare.
