WHAT IS BREAST IMPLANT REPLACEMENT

Most women will seek breast implant replacement surgery depending on when they had their initial breast augmentation. Breast implants are not intended to last a lifetime, but some are built to last longer for the patient. Although a majority of breast implant replacements are optional upon the patient’s request, some cases may be suggested based on implant recalls or other medically-related terms.

REASONS FOR CONSIDERING BREAST IMPLANT REPLACEMENT

  • Desire to change the size, shape or material filling of the original breast implant

  • Implant displacement

  • Capsular contracture

  • Implant rupture
