Q – What is breast implant replacement?
Breast implant replacement is a procedure which involves the removal of previous implants, and replacing them with new ones. This procedure is often accompanied by a breast life, or mastopexy.
Q – How do I know if I’m a candidate for breast implant replacement surgery?
Good candidates for breast implant replacement include healthy women who have previously undergone breast implantation and wish to change their implants. Women may seek breast implant replacement for a variety of reasons including size issues, implant type issues, and problems with the implants.
Q – Where is the incision made?
The incision for breast implant replacement is made in the inframammary fold, or the area under the breast. Through this incision, Dr. Vitenas will remove the old implant with or without the surrounding capsule. He will then place the new implants. If necessary, the implant position can be changed from above the chest muscle (subglandular) to below the chest muscle (submuscular).
Q- What is the recovery time for breast implant replacement?
The recovery after this surgery is usually two to three days. Patients typically experience little discomfort, though medication can be taken if necessary. Because all stitches are placed inside the wounds, there are no sutures to remove.
