Implant Exchange

Over time, your breast implants may wear down or begin to lose their original shape through vigorous activity and general physical movement. Therefore, exchanging them for new implants every 10-15 years is important in order to retain the shape and overall appearance that you want your breasts to have. Plus, this procedure gives you the opportunity to either upgrade or downgrade your breast size depending on your preference.

In addition to the ones listed above, there are other reasons why you may want or need an implant exchange down the road:

  • To correct areola placement or appearance
  • To fix complications caused by a different plastic surgeon
  • To change the general position of your implants
  • To alleviate pain caused by capsular contracture (hardening of scar tissue around the incision area)
