Breast Implant Exchange – Plastic Surgery

The breast implants exchange is a straight forward case. The old implants are removed and new ones are put in. Sometimes, they can be complex. When the scar tissue pocket needs to be revised, it makes it more involved. Other times, the first implants do not sit on the chest correctly. This will have caused the breasts to look unnatural. This will need to be revised too. The new sized implants and the first result can make these cases quite challenging.

The recovery from a breast implant exchange is fast. This is true when no pocket work needs to be done. They can be back to normal in a day. In complex cases, the pain is much less than the first case. They may need to take it easy for a few days. Again, still much better than the first case. Like any surgery, there are risks of breast implant exchange.
