Why are breast implants removed?
Bad breast augmentation is not the only reason breast implants are removed. Health concerns such as breast cancer can require the removal of breast implants — not because the implants have caused the cancer, but treatment can be more effective after the implants have been removed.
Implant-associated complications include:
- Severe capsular contracture
- Implant malposition
- Discomfort associated with implants hardening
- Poor aesthetic outcome
- Double bubble deformity
- Symmastia, also knoen as kissing implants
- Animation deformity
- Size changes
A change of lifestyle or cosmetic goals is another reason some women choose breast revision surgery. Sometimes this involves removing the implants all together and other times it means a new implant size and/or shape.
What are the reasons for breast implant revision surgery?
Side effects such as asymmetry, implant deflation and breast pain are some of the reasons women undergo breast implant revision surgery. Other reasons include the need to remove breast implants for screening as breast implants can affect mammogram readings.
Implant rupture and calcified silicone leaks can obscure breast cancer on a mammogram. In these cases, not only will the implant need to be removed, the calcified silicone will also need to be excised.
Then there are those who are simply dissatisfied with the results they achieved the first time around. As a specialist plastic surgeon, Dr Moradi has helped many women through breast revision surgery.

How long does it take to recover from breast implant revision surgery?
The results of surgery should be immediately visible. The discomfort caused by hardened or ruptured implants will be gone and replaced by mild post-surgery discomfort which can be managed by over-the-counter painkillers. Some post-surgery swelling will be present and should go away after a few days. However, exact recovery time will depend on the nature of your breast revision surgery.
