Breast Implant Removal

It’s a fact that breast implants don’t last forever. An implant may need to be replaced or removed after a certain period of time. It is because implants may leak or cause an infection in the breasts. Also, the implant’s life may simply expire which requires breast augmentation patients to undergo a breast implant removal surgery.

Who are the Candidates?

Breast implant removal Dubai is for those who have previously undergone breast augmentation surgery with breast implants. You can think of undergoing a breast implant removal surgery if you;

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

Initial Consultation

An initial consultation is essential as it allows the surgeon to explain everything about breast implant removal surgery in Dubai. Your surgeon will examine the condition of your breasts and implants to design a suitable 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

You will be given a few instructions to prepare for the surgery to make the procedure and recovery easier. These instructions include;

  • You will be asked to discontinue the use of blood-thinning and anti-inflammatory medications.
  • Stop taking food supplements.


Breast implant removal in Dubai would only take an hour to complete. In the beginning, general anesthesia is administered to carry out the procedure.

There is no significant risk of any complications after breast implant removal in Dubai. You will be given a short list of instructions to follow after the treatment which may include;

  • Take rest for a few days until you feel comfortable enough to get back to work.
