I had an abdominoplasty 3 months ago and I am very satisfied with the results. I had a lot of flabby skin and stretch marks from pregnancy and childbirth, and the abdominoplasty removed all that and gave me a flat, toned abdomen. I feel much more confident about my body now.

I am very satisfied with the results of my hair transplant. I had been losing my hair for many years and it was starting to affect my self-esteem. I did some research and found a trusted surgeon who performed the procedure. The procedure was quick and painless, and recovery was relatively easy.

Before And After Replacement Of Implants In Turkey
Replacement Of Implants In Turkey – Cosmetic Surgery Turkey
Breast implant replacement intervention in Turkey is a breast intervention that includes the removal of old breast implants and their replacement with new implants. The procedure might be done by itself for the correction of complications or as a combination with other procedures, most usually mastopexy or breast lift. Breast implants can moreover be replaced to alter the shape or size of the breast in the event that your preferences change over time.
What does it involve?
The replacement of implants generally occurs under the administration of general anesthesia and it lasts between one to two hours depending on the shape and size of the new breast implants, the method employed by your surgeon, and whether combination surgery is conducted at the same time.
The surgeon starts the surgery by conducting first the removal of the original implant through incisions made on the original scar site. In the event that the new implant is identical with regard to size and shape, then the current capsule will be sufficient and the replacement intervention can be quick.
On the other hand, if the new implant varies from the prototype implant, then surgery is more complicated seeing as the new capsule will need modifications (either reduced or enlarged) with the aim of accommodating the new implant.
Upon placing the new implant, the surgeon will sew the breast along the extant scarring line to leave minimal scarring.
Who is suitable?
Queen Clinic deems individuals as fit for the surgery if all of the below criteria are true:
- You are unsatisfied with the volume, form, or position of your implants
- Your implants are laterally displaced, known also as bottoming out
- Your implants have misshapen (capsular contracture) or they become hard to touch
- Your implants have begun moving or rotating giving out an unequal appearance
- Your implants have shifted to produce a gap between the breasts
- Your implants are created by PIP and you would like them replaced
- You are undergoing another procedure and you desire for your implants to get updated at the same moment
What to expect
The very first step we follow for all our implant replacement patients is to set up a meeting with the surgeon we best see suitable for them to conduct the procedure, for a consultation. During the consultation, you will be capable of discussing with your surgeon what you hope to achieve from the surgery, along with what you may or may not be able to achieve, given your anatomy.
Your surgeon will present all alternatives available to you and suggest the most preferable option considering your stated ambitions. Having determined this, numerous key measurements will be taken, as well as standard clinic photography.
Ultimately, there will take place an in-detail discussion in regard to complications and risk, along with a discussion on what to expect in the post-operative and recovery stage. Also recorded will be your previous medical history including previous surgery, allergies, medications, and an evaluation of your fitness for surgery.
If the surgeon views you as an eligible candidate for surgery, you will then be invited to think about whether you would like to go on with the surgery or otherwise follow a two-week “cooling off” period.
During this period you are more than welcome to return to our clinic and discuss your possible surgery with your surgeon as many times as you like to.
Leading up to the procedure
If deciding upon proceeding with the surgery, the future time you come into the clinic after the final consultation will be the day of the surgery. Prior to admission the following behavioral alterations are recommended/required:
- Before the surgery, 6 weeks, we advise ceasing smoking seeing as patients who smoke have a higher chance of healing less quickly and more complications.

Your surgeon might see as necessary the increment of the size of the capsule and the incision site, in the event that a differently shaped or larger implant is being utilized. Next, your surgeon will re-sew alongside the same scar site once the surgery is fully complete.
Throughout the procedure, you shouldn’t feel much pain. You may however feel some for a couple of days or weeks following the surgery. If needed, you will be given painkillers.
After the procedure, you will be able to recover in our recovery facilities for between two to three hours, depending on the rate of the procedure.

Certain patients choose to undergo a combination of procedures at the same time, such as a mixture with a breast lift (mastopexy), to make sure that the loose skin is pre-emptively tightened surrounding the new breast mold or exercised fully. The surgery can additionally make sure of the delivery of an ideal breast and nipple position, and that the breasts feel firmer after the surgery.
