There is a good reason why patients are usually encouraged to go for the consultation sessions with their doctors before they consider having implants. One of these is because at some point in your life, you will think about removing breast implants, and you have to go about it the right way. Implants do not stay with you for life. They have to be removed at some point. For some patients, you might remove and think of replacing breast implants to have a better experience. These are some of the things that you will discuss with your doctor in the course of the consultation, and it would be wise if you asked them as many questions as you need, to help you understand the nature of the process you will go through.
Proper care and maintenance are mandatory if you are to have your breast implants serving you for a very long time. However, you will still need to have them removed at some point. Even during this process, or as you head into it, you must make sure you pay attention to the instructions given by your doctor and are keen on them so that you have a better chance of having good results when the implants are removed.
After the removal, you will be instructed by the surgeon on ways of taking good care of your body. The instructions will vary from one surgeon to the other, and depend on your situation, but there are specifics that cut across the board in terms of breast implant removal. When you go to sleep, for example, you should prop yourself up with pillows so that you can allow the breasts to heal properly. During the first few weeks after removing breast implants, you should sleep on your back. It might not be easy for you at first, but all this is to help you recover much faster, and get back to your normal life.
You might feel some pain and as a result, pain relief is of utmost consideration. With that in mind, try and avoid using medicines that have aspirin as one of their active ingredients. These medicines will from time to time induce bleeding. In their place, paracetamol should come in handy. A huge part of the recovery process will depend on appropriate homeopathic care. You might need some arnica and silica tablets, but only take them according to the instructions you are given by your surgeon.
Immediately after the removal, you will have dressings over the treated area. These are supposed to stay in place throughout until the incisions heal. As you will be required to see your surgeon for visits from time to time, only remove them when the surgeon advises so, or allow them to remove them for you. You might also notice that the dressings given after augmentation removal might vary from one surgeon to the other, so you need to make sure you follow their advice accordingly in order to avoid unnecessary complications.
