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:
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.
The duration of breast implant replacement surgery varies depending on the complexity of the procedure. On average, the surgery takes approximately one to three hours. Dr Rotsaert’s surgical expertise and attention to detail allow for efficient and precise implant replacement while prioritising optimal aesthetic outcomes.
After breast implant replacement surgery, you can expect improved breast shape, size, and overall appearance. Dr Rotsaert will provide you with detailed post-operative instructions to facilitate proper healing and enhance your results. This may include wearing a supportive bra, taking prescribed medications, and avoiding strenuous activities. Regular follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor your progress and address any questions or concerns during the recovery process.
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.
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.
