Why Breast Implant Replacement Is Such a Hot Topic
Breast implant removal or revision surgery is a topic more people have been talking about recently, but it still isn’t something that many people understand. There are different reasons you might want to have your breast implants removed or replaced down the road, and your plastic surgeon will be able to counsel you regarding the options available and help design a plan specific for your goals and desires.
Breast implant replacement or revision is actually a very common procedure. Prior to breast implants being placed, patients are told that breast implants, and for that matter, most medical devices, are not meant to last a lifetime. That being said, if you had breast augmentation in your 20s or 30s you may need or want to have another breast surgery of some kind in the future.
There are some people who decide they no longer want implants as well. Supermodel Chrissy Teigen put the breast implant removal procedure into the spotlight when she underwent surgery this year. She said it was just time to get rid of them. She wanted to “zip a dress in my size and lie on my belly with pure comfort.”
Some women also choose breast implant revision surgeries due to changes in their body after pregnancy or weight gain or loss. Other women experience complications after breast augmentation such as capsular contracture or problems with the implants themselves, such as a ruptured implants.
If you are curious about the potential need for future breast surgery, make sure to bring up your concerns with your surgeon during your breast augmentation consultation. If you already have implants and want to discuss having them removed or exchanged, contact us for a consultation.
