Getting breast implants can be very exciting. However, proper care is necessary — and that may include replacing your breast implants when needed.

We are here to make sure you have all the information you need, and to answer any questions you have about breast implant replacement. Let’s discuss different reasons why you may need to replace your breast implants and how to know it’s time.

Natural Changes Over Time

As time goes on, our bodies go through a variety of natural changes. Things like aging, weight fluctuation, and pregnancy all have the potential to impact augmented breasts.

We recommend monitoring your breasts for changes on a regular basis. If you see something that is curious or abnormal, we are always happy to complete an examination for you.

Unsatisfactory Results and Size Changes

If you are considering a change in implant size or a revision due to an unexpected outcome of your implants, we recommend being open and honest with your surgeon about your concerns.

As with any procedure performed at Aspire Plastic Surgery, we want to make sure your expectations align with what is surgically possible.

Physical Discomfort and Pain

Some patients experience physical discomfort or pain associated with their breast implants. If you are experiencing these symptoms, we encourage you to openly discuss them with your plastic surgeon so you can explore potential issues and causes together.

While some pain and discomfort may be normal, we always want to make sure your implants are working for you – not causing you stress.

Implant Displacement and Changes in Shape

After your breast implants are placed, it’s important to understand the difference between the natural settling of implants and abnormal displacements or rotations. Recognizing and addressing these changes are pivotal steps in ensuring the longevity and satisfaction of breast augmentation.

Potential Complications and Signs for Replacement

Being aware of potentially concerning symptoms is key to the timely replacement of breast implants. Complications like capsular contracture can occur post-surgery, and there are other new health issues related to breast implants that have surfaced in the past few years. These include Breast Implant Associated Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (BIA-ALCL), Breast Implant Associated Squamous Cell Carcinoma (BIA-SCC), and Breast Implant Illness (BII).

It’s also important to monitor for ruptures or deflations. Whether you have saline or silicone implants, these issues require prompt replacement. Another change you may encounter is visible rippling and changes in appearance, though these concerns are a bit more cosmetic than concerning.

So, When is the Right Time for Replacement?

At Aspire Plastic Surgery, we provide our patients with information about the lifespan of breast implants, emphasizing individual factors and recommending regular checkups.

Regardless of what potential issues you may be experiencing, it is important to monitor changes and be aware of symptoms so you can consult with your physician anytime there is a concern.

If you have any questions about your breast implants or if it might be time for replacement, our team would be happy to help you.
