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.

I love Tampa Palms Plastic Surgery ~ Dr. Moseillo, Mary, Nancy & Paula. I had breast cancer and reconstruction with Dr. Moseillo several years ago and knew I would never let anyone perform surgery on me other than him. I decided I wanted to do an Upper Blepharoplasty (upper eyelid surgery). I had the surgery a few months ago, am now at my summer home in Maine and everyone is commenting on how great I look. They have no idea that I had anything done! I keep hearing, “you have amazing eyes”. I am so thrilled with the results, feel 10 years younger and if you’re thinking about this procedure, or any other for that matter, do not hesitate to go to Tampa Palms

Dr. Mosiello, plain and simply put , is the BEST ! I did a lot of research and he was the one I chose and am very thankful and grateful that I did, as I had consulted with other plastic surgeons from other cancer centers. Dr. Mosiello surpassed in every area. He and his staff truly care and are warm, friendly, compassionate and knowledgeable. Which takes the stress out of any pre surgery or procedure. Knowing you have the best surgeon in your corner is the most important part. Post surgical procedures look amazing and he has saved my life, and has made me whole again. Look no further, he IS the best.

I came to Dr. Mosiello’s practice as a reluctant patient who had just been given the diagnosis of breast cancer. I have been in several doctors’ office’s during my diagnosis and treatment and Dr. Mosiello’s office is my favorite. He is a very kind, competent surgeon who patiently answered questions and explained things fully. I was given clear post op directions and checked on by the nurse before my first post op visit and someone was always available if I had a question or concern. His staff is amazing! Melissa, Paula, Mary and Carol are all very personable and caring. This is also an office where I did not wait long periods of time to be seen. Things run smoothly and timely. I would highly recommend Dr. Mosiello to anyone in need of a plastic surgeon.
