What Is Breast Implant Replacement?

Breast implant replacement is a surgical procedure that involves replacing existing breast implants with new ones. Over time, breast implants may require replacement due to factors such as implant rupture, changes in breast shape or size, or personal preference. Dr Veerle Rotsaert specialises in breast implant replacement plastic surgery, offering patients the opportunity to enhance or modify their breast appearance with updated implants.

Things You Should Know Before Your Breast Implant Replacement Procedure In London

  1. Pre-procedure Preparation: If you’re considering breast implant replacement with Dr Veerle Rotsaert, it’s important to schedule a consultation to discuss your concerns and goals. During this consultation, Dr V will evaluate your current breast implants, assess their condition, and discuss your desired outcome. She will provide professional advice on the most suitable implant options and surgical techniques for your individual situation. Additionally, Dr Veerle Rotsaert will guide you through the pre-procedure preparations, which may involve certain medical tests and adjustments to medications, ensuring the best possible outcome.

Dr Veerle Rotsaert believes in providing her patients with transparent and accurate information. During your consultation, she will explain the potential risks and complications associated with breast implant replacement, such as infection, bleeding, implant rupture, and changes in nipple sensation. However, with her expertise and precise surgical techniques, Dr V aims to minimise these risks and ensure a safe and successful procedure.

  3. Pre-procedure Instructions: Dr Veerle Rotsaert will provide you with detailed pre-procedure instructions to follow before your breast implant replacement surgery.

Dr Veerle Rotsaert will provide you with personalised guidance on how to prepare for your recovery, including arranging for assistance with daily activities, ensuring you have comfortable post-operative garments, and understanding the healing process. Dr V will provide you with detailed instructions on post-operative care, including incision care, pain management, and gradually resuming your normal activities.

  5. Questions to Ask: When considering breast implant replacement, it’s important to have all your questions addressed. Here are some key questions to ask Dr Veerle Rotsaert during your consultation:

  • What are the reasons for replacing breast implants, and how do I know if I need a replacement?
  • What types of implants are available for replacement, and which one would be suitable for me?
  • Can you show me before and after photos of previous patients who underwent breast implant replacement?
  • What is the expected recovery timeline, and when can I resume my normal activities?
  • What are the potential long-term effects or complications associated with breast implant replacement?

What Kind of Anaesthesia is Used?

Breast implant replacement surgery is typically performed under general anaesthesia, ensuring your comfort and safety throughout the procedure. Our experienced anaesthesiologists will closely monitor you during surgery to ensure a smooth and pain-free experience. Dr Rotsaert will discuss the anaesthesia options and address any concerns you may have during your consultation.

How Long Does Breast Implant Replacement Takes?

Dr Rotsaert’s surgical expertise and attention to detail allow for efficient and precise implant replacement while prioritising optimal aesthetic outcomes.

Dr Rotsaert will provide you with detailed post-operative instructions to facilitate proper healing and enhance your results.

How Long Before I Can Return to Normal Activities?

The recovery time following breast implant replacement surgery varies among individuals. Most patients can expect to resume their normal activities gradually within a few weeks. However, it is important to avoid heavy lifting, vigorous exercise, and activities that strain the chest muscles during the initial stages of recovery. Dr Rotsaert will provide you with specific guidelines tailored to your case, ensuring a smooth recovery and optimal healing.

Will I Have Scars After Breast Implant Replacement

As with any surgical procedure, breast implant replacement surgery results in some scarring. However, Dr Rotsaert utilises advanced techniques and places incisions in inconspicuous locations to minimise visible scarring. Over time, the scars will fade and become less noticeable. Dr Rotsaert and our dedicated team will provide you with comprehensive scar care instructions, including proper wound care and massage techniques, to promote optimal healing and minimise scar visibility.

Dr. V's View On Breast Implant Replacement

“I understand that breast implant replacement is an important decision for many women who have previously undergone breast augmentation. I am dedicated to helping my patients achieve their desired results and providing them with peace of mind. Breast implant replacement allows me to address any concerns or issues with existing implants, such as changes in implant integrity, size, or shape. During your consultation, I will listen to your specific needs and discuss the best approach for achieving your desired outcome. My goal is to provide you with natural-looking results, enhance your confidence, and ensure your safety throughout the entire breast implant replacement process.”


After breast implant replacement surgery, Dr Rotsaert may recommend wearing a supportive bra or compression garment to provide proper support to the breasts during the healing process. This helps minimise swelling, promote optimal healing, and ensure the best possible aesthetic outcome.

One year post surgery - The best decision going to Dr V! Having lost a significant amount of weight (50kg) at the age of 21 my breasts were very low from the loose skin. After my initial consultation where she helped me and talked through all the options I had and guided me with her expertise on what would look best from her professional opinion from feeling my skin and her experience. Especially as my skin was very difficult. Had a breast lift with implants put it, surgery went so smoothly and 1 year post op they are looking incredible. So thankful to Dr V and her team, as well as the nurses at the Welbeck Hospital. After the operation was getting constant check ups both in person and over the phone. Would recommend she made feel so comfortable and the has made me so confident in my body! Thank you for everything 🙂

Undergoing elective surgery was not something I rushed into. After extensive research I met with Dr Rotsaert, and knew I had met the right surgeon to carry out my procedure. Finally a surgeon who is professional, compassionate, and demonstrates expertise!!! My initial enquiry was well received by a friendly knowledgeable team who made the booking process easy. Dr Rotsaert created a relaxed environment for me at consultation, and listened to my concerns - I left feeling reassured and well informed with my personal treatment plan. The lovely nurses Amina and Alice helped prepare me for surgery and were extremely attentive (they were also at hand for my post operative care which was nice for continuity) When I arrived at hospital the experience and trust was confirmed as soon as I walked through the door to the moment I left. I was made to feel VIP and relaxed in the knowledge I was in safe hands. Post operatively went as smoothly as I could have hoped for. The only fault being my personal lack of patience to being fully recovered. 6 weeks after surgery I can honestly say I’m delighted with my results and as cliche as it sounds wish I had done it sooner. Dr Rotsaert and her team listened and guided me throughout. With their support and expertise they turned a nerve wracking decision of mine into one of best decisions I’ve made. Gold star service!
From the very first email I sent and my initial consultation with Dr V, all the way through to my surgery day and 6 week post operation appointment, I have been so happy with how I have been treated. Dr V always made me feel comfortable and at ease, and I trusted she understood exactly what I wanted. The results are even better than I could've imagined. I have a newfound love for my body and my confidence has increased tenfold, all thanks to her wonderful work. Definitely the best decision I have every made. I can't thank Dr V and her team enough. Highly recommend!

I’d highly recommend Dr V to anyone looking for a natural breast enhancement. She put me at ease straight away, no getting topless on Zoom, no 3D simulation, but a face to face initial consultation telling me exactly what was possible and making me touch and try several implants on. I also felt like she would take her time during the surgery instead of rushing it in 20-30 minutes which was important to me. The recovery was way easier than I expected and my results 2.5 months in are amazing, I got my breasts back which had “deflated” after having and breastfeeding my daughter and I really wanted that natural effect which I got with Motiva Joy implants and demi projection. The fact the post-op appointments are included is also a great touch.

Dr Veerle was everything I had hoped I would find in a surgeon. Having done a lot of my own research and prep over the course of a few years, she was able to answer all my questions in a way that reassured me she was extremely professional, fully knowledgable and skilled/experienced enough to offer the best result. She was also generous with her time where it mattered whilst being efficient in the process. There was absolutely no hint of an upsell or any encouragement to consider additional procedures from her side which I had encountered elsewhere and had put me off. Post-procedure she has also proven a dedicated surgeon and is happy to be involved in the evolving result and post-operative journey. Dr Veerle is the best!
