Katie – Implant Removal and Replacement

Aurora Ambassador - KatieAfter having 2 breast enlargements at other clinics, and going through pregnancy and weight gain, Katie felt her breasts were too big for her frame. After researching various surgeons she decided to visit Mr William Van Niekerk for her second replacement procedure to reduce the size of her implants. Read on to find out more about Katie’s surgical journey with the team at Aurora Clinics.

Why did you decide to have your implants exchanged?

I had my original breast augmentation in 2005 because I wanted to make myself feel better about they way I looked and how I felt about myself. Unfortunately I later found out these implants were PIP. I therefore underwent a replacement surgery in 2012 where I also increased my breast size from a D to an F. After fertility treatment, pregnancy and weight gain I began to feel they were too big for me and I hated them. I wanted to feel good about my body again so I decided to have my implants exchanged for the second time at Aurora Clinics. This time I went back down to a  D cup.
