Breast Implant Exchange

In Englewood

Introduction to Breast Implant Exchange

Breast Implant Exchange, also known as breast implant replacement surgery, is a specialized procedure offered at BeautyBlade Plastic Surgery in Denver, CO. This surgery involves the removal of existing breast implants and their replacement with new implants. It is undertaken for various reasons, such as changes in implant size, addressing implant-related issues, or updating to newer implant technologies.

What is Breast Implant Exchange?

Breast Implant Exchange is a surgical procedure aimed at replacing current breast implants with new ones. It allows patients to change the size, type, or shape of their implants. Additionally, it can address concerns like implant rupture, capsular contracture, dissatisfaction with current implants, or changes in aesthetic preferences over time.

How Does Breast Implant Exchange Work?

Breast implant exchange involves replacing existing breast implants with new ones. The process typically begins with a consultation to discuss the patient’s goals and concerns. During the surgery, Dr. Samir Hasan makes incisions along the previous augmentation scars or in new locations if necessary. The old implants are carefully removed, and adjustments or modifications, such as changing size or type of implants, are made according to the patient’s preferences. New implants are then inserted and positioned to achieve the desired aesthetic outcome. If needed, additional procedures like a breast lift or addressing any issues with the surrounding tissue or capsule may also be performed. Post-surgery, patients receive guidance for recovery, including wearing a supportive bra and monitoring for any signs of complications as the breasts heal and settle into their new appearance.

Benefits of Breast Implant Exchange

Updated Implant Technology

Exchanging breast implants allows patients to upgrade to newer implant options that may offer advanced technologies, improved durability, and enhanced safety features not available at the time of the initial implantation.

Addressing Implant-related Concerns

The procedure enables resolution of issues related to the existing implants, such as implant rupture, capsular contracture (scar tissue formation around the implant), or changes in breast appearance due to the aging or degradation of implants over time.

Aesthetic Adjustments

Breast Implant Exchange offers patients the opportunity to modify the size, shape, or type of their implants according to their preferences, allowing for aesthetic enhancements and improved satisfaction with their appearance.

Enhanced Confidence and Satisfaction

For individuals dissatisfied with their current implants, exchanging them for a different size or type can help restore confidence, boost self-esteem, and provide increased satisfaction with the overall appearance of the breasts.

Personalized Treatment

The procedure is personalized to meet the individual needs and aesthetic goals of the patient, ensuring that the new implants align with their desired outcome and preferences.

Improved Comfort

Patients who experience discomfort or complications with their current implants, such as asymmetry, hardness, or unnatural appearance, may find relief and increased comfort after undergoing Breast Implant Exchange.
