Considering breast implant revision?
Is it for me?
At your initial one-on-one consultation, Dr Hunt will take the time to understand your situation and your desired results. He’ll then outline your options, and help you decide how you’d like to move forward.
If you choose to go ahead with your breast implant revision surgery, Dr Hunt will perform the procedure in the hospital of your choice, under general anesthetic administered by one of his hand-selected anathetists. The details of the procedure will depend entirely on your personal situation, however Dr Hunt will endeavor to do whatever is needed to achieve your desired outcome. This will include ensuring any incisions are placed so that resulting scars will be as small and hidden as possible, often by re-using your existing scars.
You can also be assured that Dr Hunt uses only the very best quality implants on the market.

When can I go home?
Depending on the details of your surgery, you may be able to go home the same day as your surgery. However, you can also choose to stay overnight if you’d prefer.
Someone will need to stay with you for the first 24 hours.
How long will I be off work?
When can I resume my normal activities?
You will experience the most discomfort in the 24 to 48 hours after your surgery. Your breasts will be swollen and tender, although this will settle quickly. Your mild bruising will fade within around six days, however a small amount of swelling may remain for three to five weeks.
You should restrict all physical activity for at least two weeks, and all strenuous activities for four weeks. Additionally, can’t do any chest, weights or stretching exercises for at least six weeks, to allow your incisions to heal.
When will I see the end result?
You will see the final result of your breast implant revision surgery at around six to nine months.
How much will breast implant revision cost me?
In most instances, breast implant revision surgery will cost more than the initial breast augmentation. This is mainly because the surgery is more complex and takes longer to complete. Patients who are choosing to insert larger or smaller implants or want to combine the revision procedure with a breast lift, should also be prepared to consider a higher final surgery cost. With this being said, there’s no real way to tell how much this procedure will cost without scheduling a consultation with Dr Hunt. Along with the specifics of your procedure, surgeon, anaesthetist and hospital fees are included in the total too. If your implants caused complications that pose a health risk, some of the costs of this procedure could be covered. You can discuss this option and find out more about claiming during your consultation once your needs have been discussed.
