300cc Breast Implant Removal, what are my options?
Doctor Answers 4
I'm sorry that you are experiencing this issue. It is best to seek the advice of an experienced plastic surgeon in your area. You can have the implants removed, but depending on the situation it may be necessary to have the capsules out as well. An examination by an expert will help lead you to your best options.
Problems after overseas surgery
Hi Samantha, sorry to hear you have problems, but unfortunately this is common after fly-in fly out surgery in Asia.
You should get a referral to see a local plastic surgeon, but it is unlikely that you will be able to have surgery in the public hospital system, as cosmetic surgery is not allowed.
Your GP should be able to recommend someone, or try the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeon.
