Women may decide to have their breast implants replaced if the shape of the implants have altered over time, are deflated or ruptured or causing discomfort. Some patients desire a different size, projection or shape offered with newer implant technology.
Exchange of one or both implants can be done. If scar tissue exists around the implant, an additional step is involved. Incisions will be made, implants will be removed, new implants will be inserted and positioned, and the incisions will then be stitched closed.
Most patients will feel tired and sore for a couple of days following surgery. Patients may return to work in a week.
