Dr Lee provides you with thorough instructions on post-operative care, which is critical to ensure your overall wellness and optimise the outcomes of your procedure.

Tips for self-monitoring

Get to know the normal look and feel of your breasts and self-examine your breasts and surrounding area, including the armpits up to the collarbone, regularly. A good time to self-examine is when you are in the bath or shower. Things to look for:
• Swelling
• Fluid build-up
• Lumps
• Pain
• Changes in breast shape
If you believe there are any changes, or if you have any concerns, see your GP.

We won’t forget you once you’re fully recovered!

Ensuring your ongoing care is very important to Dr Lee and his team, and our care certainly doesn’t stop once you have fully healed. We are here for the long-haul and will always be here to answer any questions you have throughout the lifetime of your implants.

Ongoing check-ups

As breast implants are not lifetime device, they generally need to be replaced or removed after 10 to 15 years, but we understand circumstances change and sometimes complications can arise that may mean you need to act sooner than anticipated. We also know the risk of serious complications, such as breast implant illness and breast implant associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL), increases with how long a patient has had an implant.

You can book a check-up with our team throughout the duration of your breast implant lifetime. At your check-up we will also let you know any new information on your implants and answer any questions you may have.
