Several reasons may drive you to consider removing your breast prostheses.

The most frequent reason is due to a prosthesis rupture, which is most common in women having used them for over 25 years. In addition, a rigid capsule may form around ruptured prostheses which in some cases may be uncomfortable. These symptoms disappear by removing the prosthesis and the capsule. 

Getting ready for a prosthesis removal

During the consultation we will examine your breasts and your body in order to determine if an extra surgical procedure is required when removing the prostheses. According to the size of your breasts and their degree of droop, it may be preferable to replace the prostheses, lift them or to combine a breast augmentation and lifting. We will explain to you the benefits of each option and together we will choose the option that suits best your needs. 
It is essential to stop smoking six weeks before and after the surgery. This measure prevents long recovery times and the opening of surgical wounds. A long recovery time may also affect patients with diabetes or who are overweight.
