Why Consider a Breast Implant Exchange?
Women who undergo breast implant surgery may believe that they will never face the prospect of having to go through this type of operation again. They may have been told wrongly that their initial implants will last forever. In fact, most all breast implant patients have to go through another cosmetic procedure in order to maintain their results. And sometimes, they need to undergo another surgery due to issues with the existing implants. You can prepare yourself now or even be proactive about your current implants by learning the various reasons why women choose to go through a breast implant exchange.
One of the most common reasons that women choose to undergo a breast implant exchange is to change size. Women who have large bust sizes may no longer want to put that amount of strain on their upper backs and shoulders. By going through a breast implant exchange, they can go down to a smaller size and still maintain a firm and toned bust line. Similarly, women who want to go up a size or two may have their current implants exchanged with larger ones. They get a fuller bust and a look that they did not get with their first set of implants.
Replace Aging Implants
Cosmetic surgeons agree that breast implants are not designed to last forever. They will age and deteriorate just like most other medical implants. Breast implant exchange allows you to have aging implants replaced with newer and safer ones. You avoid the worry of your old implants bursting and causing infection. You also avoid a warped or uneven appearance by having your implants exchanged.
Breast Implant Failure
While most breast implant surgeries are successful, some result in failure that must be remedied through a procedure like breast implant exchange. Implants that burst, slide out of position, ripple or cause other complications must be taken out and replaced with safer silicone implants. If you have experienced failure with your first breast implant surgery, you may get the results you want with a breast implant exchange. You avoid post-operative complications like infection, displacement and distortion that impairs the way you look and feel.
Exchanging of Saline for Silicone
Older style implants were made out of saline, which at the time was thought to be a safer option for breast implant patients. However, doctors have discovered that saline implants are not as durable as once thought and can rupture, causing infection, pain, swelling and other symptoms.
Most of the new implants used today in cosmetic procedures like breast implant surgery are made out of silicone. This material is believed to be safer than saline and also more durable. With that being said, it is also possible to replace silicone implants with saline ones during breast implant exchange.
