The anaesthesia used during explant or removal of breast implants will depend on your specific case and preferences. Dr Rotsaert offers both general anaesthesia, which allows you to sleep throughout the procedure, and local anaesthesia with sedation, which keeps you relaxed and comfortable while you remain awake. The most suitable anaesthesia option will be determined during your consultation, taking into account factors such as your medical history and the complexity of the surgery.
The duration of the explant or removal of breast implants procedure varies depending on individual circumstances. Generally, the surgery can take one to three hours. Dr Rotsaert’s expertise and meticulous approach ensure efficient and precise implant removal while prioritising patient safety and aesthetic outcomes.
Following explant or removal of breast implants, you can expect a transformed breast appearance that aligns with your desired goals. Dr Rotsaert will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to promote proper healing and optimise your results. This may include wearing a compression garment, taking prescribed medications, and attending follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and address any concerns during the recovery process.
The recovery time following explant or removal of breast implants varies from person to person. Most patients can resume their daily activities within a few weeks. It is important to follow Dr Rotsaert’s post-operative guidelines, which may include avoiding strenuous activities, maintaining proper wound care, and wearing a supportive bra, to ensure a smooth recovery and achieve the best possible outcome.
