Costs for getting breast implants removed

Hi, my left saline implant seems to have ruptured. I live in northern Nsw but closer to the Gold Coast or Brisbane. I don't have private cover. Is there any way I can get this done in a public hospital? I can't afford to get the implants replaced unless I could get a payment plan

    Hi Mellycarty15,If your implants are saline, you could address the significant asymmetry in the short term by have draining the saline from the other implant, and then go on to a waiting list for a public hospital for the removal of the implants.  You may be able to do some research for medical finance if you want to have the implants replaced.  If this is your preferred option it would be more cost effective to have them replaced at the time of the removal of the old implant.  Always check that your surgeon of choice has experience in these types of procedures, and also ask to see before and afters of other patients whom they have treated with a similar problem.  Kind regards,Mark Magnusson
