Breast Implant Exchange| Why Consider it?

Breast Implant Exchange| Why Consider it?Breast augmentation is primarily a cosmetic procedure. Most patients choose to have the procedure performed in order to achieve a more aesthetically pleasing overall figure. For many patients this is a procedure that will boost both their self-esteem as well as self-confidence. But, patients are informed when choosing to have breast augmentation surgery that there is a chance that they may need to replace their implants over time. Breast implants are not designed to last a lifetime however it is not solely due to the fact that they are a manufactured product. The reality is that as patients age, many facets of their body change as well. Patients breast tissue over time is likely to sag as they lose natural breast tissue and the skin has less elasticity. So, it is not realistic to expect breast implants that are 10 years or older to look the same as they did when the patient originally had breast augmentation. Dr. Seify explains to patients that if they have breast implants that are older, or have saline implants because silicone implants were not available at the time of their original breast augmentation, they should seriously consider having their breast implants examined. Dr. Seify will check for hardening of scar tissue, contour irregularities, as well as other indicators that may cause concern. Breast implant exchange is typically the recommendation if the breast implants are compromised or the breast augmentation result is less than desirable. Some patients may also be a candidate for a breast lift and breast augmentation combination. For most patients the recovery for breast implant exchange is considerably less painful than the original breast augmentation surgery. Patients are able to select either silicone or saline in most cases and Dr. Seify explains to patients that with their new breast implants they will be entitled to the new warranties which have better cash assistance should a rupture or deflation take place. Patients who are considering breast implant exchange are encouraged to contact Dr. Seify and schedule a consultation.
