Preparing for Your Breast Revision | Implant Removal Procedure
In the weeks leading up to your surgery, we advise you to maintain a healthy, high-protein, low-sodium diet. Avoid taking most herbal supplements, especially those containing garlic, fish oil, or zinc. Also, stop taking medicines containing aspirin, including Excedrin, ibuprofen, or Aleve. During your consultation, Dr. Bellamy will review your current medications and provide instructions on how to proceed with them.
Dr. Bellamy also advises that smoking, vaping, or using any nicotine products are strictly off-limits for at least four weeks before and after your breast revision procedure. Smoking and nicotine constrict blood vessels and affect the body’s ability to heal itself, potentially impacting your recovery and results.
Breast Revision | Implant Removal Procedure and Recovery
Dr. Bellamy will begin your breast revision by creating small, well-concealed incisions along the lower fold of each breast and around your areolas to remove the implant. During your consultation, he will determine the appropriate method for removing existing implants and the breast capsule if necessary.
Then, Dr. Bellamy will make small incisions to insert the new implants. Dr. Bellamy uses the no-touch Keller Funnel method for breast implant insertion to reduce contamination risks and create smaller scars.
If you have elected to not replace your implants, Dr. Bellamy may perform a breast lift to reposition your breasts. During this procedure, Dr. Bellamy layers the sutures deep within the tissue for support after reshaping and elevating your breasts.
Breast revision or implant removal procedures are an outpatient surgery, so you’ll need to arrange for someone to drive you home and stay with you for the first day. You may require assistance with simple daily tasks, especially if you have young children, pets, or other family members under your care.
After your breast revision surgery, you will need to wear a surgical or support bra full-time for at least two to four weeks to support your new breast contours and minimize swelling.
Plan to take one to two weeks off work for recovery. For four to six weeks, you will need to avoid strenuous activities, including exercising, heavy lifting, or other activities that use the chest muscles. However, Dr. Bellamy recommends slow walking as soon as you feel well enough.
