Home Breast Surgery in Dubai Breast Implant Removal

Breast Implant Removal

It’s a fact that breast implants don’t last forever. Implants may need replacement or removal due to various reasons, often after several years. It is because implants may leak, and in rare cases, cause an infection in the breasts. Implants have a limited lifespan and may eventually need replacement or removal.

Who are the Candidates?

Breast implant removal in Dubai is intended for individuals who have previously received breast augmentation surgery with breast implants. You might consider breast implant removal surgery if you:

  • Have experienced capsular contracture.
  • Want to replace the implant size, shape, or type.
  • Wish to remove the implant because it has leaked or ruptured.

Initial Consultation

During the initial consultation, the surgeon will discuss the details of breast implant removal surgery, including risks, benefits, and personalized considerations. Your surgeon will assess the condition of your breasts, implants, and overall health to create a personalized treatment plan. You can talk about implant replacement and share all your concerns regarding breast implant removal surgery with your plastic surgeon.

Pre-Op Preparation

To facilitate a smoother procedure and recovery, you will receive several preparatory instructions. These instructions include;

  • You may be advised to stop taking certain blood-thinning and anti-inflammatory medications before surgery, as per your surgeon’s instructions.
  • Discontinue the use of certain dietary supplements as advised by your surgeon.

The Procedure of Breast Implant Removal

Breast implant removal typically takes about an hour, but this can vary depending on the individual case. In the beginning, general anesthesia is administered to carry out the procedure. Your surgeon will typically make an incision at or near the site of the original incision used for implant insertion, depending on the surgical plan. The implant will be removed using surgical instruments and incisions will be stitched closed.

Post-Op Care

The risk of complications is generally low, but as with any surgery, there are inherent risks. You will be given a short list of instructions to follow after the treatment which may include;

  • Rest for a few days until you feel comfortable enough to resume work.
  • You should avoid strenuous exercises and lifting heavy objects during recovery.
  • Follow the medications prescribed by your surgeon.
  • Wear a surgical bra for a few days.


Recovery times vary after breast implant removal surgery, with most patients resuming normal activities within a few weeks. However, the recovery process is easier than breast augmentation surgery. During the recovery, you will;

  • Have to rest for 2 to 3 days.
  • Feel sore during the initial few days.
  • Have to wear an elastic surgical bra.


Breast implant removal surgery is designed to safely remove the implant with minimal damage to surrounding tissues.


  • It is generally a safe procedure with a low risk of complications.
  • The recovery is easy and comfortable.
  • An implant can be replaced during the procedure.
  • This surgery can often be combined with other procedures, like a breast lift.

How Much Does Breast Implant Removal Cost?

The cost of breast implant removal in Dubai varies based on several factors, including the complexity of the procedure and the patient’s specific needs. The average starting price of breast implant removal in Dubai is AED 25000. You should consult with an expert to know the exact cost.
