Medical fitness for surgery will be decided by our experts, so as to assure you the best possible results.

Recovery: You will be guided thru the recovery by our team. There may be some drains placed in your breast to remove the blood mixed fatty fluid, which usually is removed after 1-2 nights. Desk jobs can be resumed within 72 hours. You should be pain-free within a week’s time and resume graded workouts within an additional week. The breasts will need to be supported with a special garment, which will be discussed with you in detail during the consultation. Though you will be able to appreciate the changes immediately, however achieving the final shape and texture takes about one year.

Breast implant removal candidates must remember that the breast after implant removal is never going to look as fuller and perky as it was with the implant in place. The breast will lose volume and often become more droopy after implants have been removed. Also if the breasts were having major asymmetry before the implant placement, it will return once the implants have been removed.

Longevity of results: Permanent, predictable and generally very good. However, the results do have an interpersonal variation. You will be advised about follow-ups and precautions to be taken. Our team stays with you in your post-surgery journey.
