2) Are there any complications in a breast implant removal?
Dr. Feledy ensures any leaking or ruptured breast implant residue is removed when performing a breast implant removal surgery. He takes all necessary action to get rid of any leaked material.
3) Preparing for your breast implant removal surgery
Dr. Feledy will go into detail what the process of removing breast implants and what you should anticipate during your personal consultation and pre-surgery appointments. The goal is to access your specific needs and make recommendations based on your situation. You will know what to expect during and after the procedure and the result of the surgery.
4) What to expect after your implant removal surgery
Following your breast implant removal surgery, you will wear a surgery bra with adjustable straps for comfort while recovering at home for a couple of days. Dr. Feledy can prescribe pain medication to give you some comfort. After a few days, many women can walk without medication. But do not engage in strenuous activities or exercise. How long this will take depends on your recovery. No one is the same. But everyone needs at least three weeks to recover after surgery. When you return to work, expect to be tired more easily than you are sued to and feel sore by the end of the day. That is perfectly natural with this type of surgery.
During your healing period, your breasts may have lumpy areas where sutures are located. Do not be alarmed! This is common for up to two months after your surgery. The sutures are absorbed into the body and lumps will eventually disappear. It will take your breasts up to eight weeks to fully heal and to be in their final shape. Dr. Feledy and his team will provide you with further information about what you can and cannot do during this time.
