BREAST IMPLANT EXCHANGE

Need to change your implants? Get fast and easy implant exchange at Cosmetrix

If you need to change or remove your breast implants, you may you may want to consider breast implant exchange. This procedure removes old implants and places new ones of your choice in the same position as the previous implants.

Who is it for?

A breast implant exchange is suitable for women who want to upgrade old breast implants, to remove breast implants that are no longer needed or to change the size of their breast implants. This procedure involves removing old, ruptured or unneeded breast implants to replace them with new ones or remove them completely.

What to expect?

In preparing for breast implant exchange surgery, you may be asked to:

  • Get a full examination of your breasts, including size, shape, skin quality, and placement of your nipples and areolas
  • Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements, as they can increase bleeding

This surgery takes around one hours. On the day of the procedure, you’ll receive general anesthesia, which will put you to sleep during the operation. The procedure involves removing old implants and replacing them with new ones. It is generally a day surgery that doesn’t require staying overnight in the hospital, though one-night stay may be required following the procedure.

How long will it take you to recover?

It will take at a few days to recover from this procedure. You should avoid any strenuous activity until the pain and swelling go away. Your doctor will advise you on the best way to minimize discomfort during the healing process.

Common side effects

After a breast implant exchange, pain and discomfort are minimal, but you may experience some bruising, swelling and soreness for a few days. The risk of other, more severe complications is minimal and rare, but increases if you have poor circulation, diabetes, heart, lung, or liver disease.

The new you…

Depending on whether you opted to enhance the size of your breasts, remove the implants altogether or retain the same size with a new material, the results of this procedure will vary greatly. Regardless, the results of this procedure should be noticeable almost immediately and, by maintaining a healthy lifestyle, should last for a long time.
