Silicone Breast Implant Removal With Breast Implant Exchange : Many people expect breast implants to last for many years or a lifetime. However, breast implants will wear out over time and require replacement like other implanted devices.

Breast implant removal is an operation to take out silicone or saline breast implants. During the surgery, your surgeon will remove old implants and replace them with new ones.

Whether you want to replace your breast implants due to medical conditions or aesthetic reasons, trust a well-qualified and experienced plastic surgeon to perform the procedure.

Breast Implant Exchange

It is important to note that after having breast augmentation, the results are not permanent. You can expect to visit your plastic surgeon in the future and discuss changes you notice in your breasts. Over time, age, weight fluctuations, gravity, and hormonal factors can change how your breasts look. If you are no longer comfortable with the appearance of your breasts, you may have an implant exchange to restore a youthful contour.

Breast implant exchange is a surgical procedure that removes initial breast implants and replaces them with new ones. For a satisfactory aesthetic outcome, the removal of silicone breast implants is often followed by replacement with new ones or a breast lift as per the patient’s choice.

Reasons for Breast Implant Exchange

There are many reasons for undergoing breast implant removal and exchange procedures. These include:

Interference With Daily Activities

Oversized breasts can hinder your active and athletic lifestyle. They can also impact your arms’ movement during athletic activities. In addition, extra weight in your breasts may cause neck or back pain, and it can also be a challenge when running.

Dissatisfaction With the Appearance

If you are not satisfied with the cosmetic outcome of your breast augmentation, you can go for breast implant removal and exchange. You can also opt for breast implant exchange if your breast appearance has changed over time, either due to age, weight fluctuation, or pregnancy.

Desire for a Different Size

If your initial breast implant is too small or large, you can exchange them with the right size that suits you best.

Desire to Switch to Silicone Breast Implants

Due to advancements in silicone breast implant technology, many women are switching from saline to silicone breast implants that are more safe and natural.

Medical Conditions

Capsular contracture is one of the medical conditions that necessitate implant exchange. Capsular contracture is a condition in which scar tissue develops around the implant.

Am I a Candidate for Breast Implant Exchange?

Women considering breast implant exchange are in good overall health (both physical and emotional) and do not smoke. They have no previous health condition that may affect the healing process after the operation. Also, appropriate candidates have considered both the rewards and possible risks of the procedure. They have realistic expectations and goals for breast revision surgery, and they have decided to pursue breast implant exchange for valid reasons.

If you meet the criteria and have the right reasons for breast implant exchange, then you are an appropriate candidate.

What Are the Benefits of Breast Implant Exchange?

Breast implant exchange can correct unfulfilling aspects of your breast implant surgery procedure. Specifically, breast implant exchange can:

  • Increase comfort
  • Boost self-confidence
  • Bring peace of mind
  • Enhance aesthetics

If you feel that your initial breast implants no longer suit your current lifestyle or decide to have a different implant type or size, breast implant removal and exchange will be necessary. Your doctor will assess your breast situation and discuss your preferences to create a personalized surgical plan.
