Breast Implant Exchange Surgery

Breast Implant Exchange Surgery

June 2016

Breast Implant Exchange surgery is a common procedure for patients who want a change or have experienced complications such as capsular contracture, rippling, rupture, deflation, symmastia and double bubble deformities after breast augmentation. Implants are not designed to last a lifetime and over time, natural circumstances related to aging, weight, hormones, and gravity can change the implants outward appearance. Perhaps you might want to exchange silicone for saline, or you would just like a different look from your initial implant.

Breast Implant Exchange is expected at some point in the life of your breast implants and can be a simple and comfortable procedure. Done in-office, the procedure is less invasive than the initial implant surgery with less pain, less downtime and a faster recovery because the space for the implant is already made.

Having your implants checked by your doctor annually is the best way to stay on top of any complications that may arise. If you have not had your implants checked yet, and the length of time since your surgery is more than 5 years, it is recommended that you make an appointment. Keep your body healthy, and looking and feeling beautiful.
