Breast Implant Replacement
Madrid | Zurich
There are different reasons why it might be necessary to replace or exchange breast implants. One of the most frequent is the occurrence of capsular fibrosis or capsular contracture, which usually happens around 10-12 years after its placement. This is a pathology associated to the type of materials previously used in the implants. Its incidence has nowadays been greatly minimised, due to modern technology and next generation quality implants.
In some other cases, as a natural consequence of ageing, breast may naturally sag, with or without implants. This might become a reason for an implant replacement or change, out of a purely aesthetical wish.
Choosing the most appropriate implant will be determined by multiple variables, such as the state of the current implant, its position in relation to the gland, skin quality and the patient’s own beauty ideals. In many cases the implant change can be combined with a Breast Lift procedure, to balance its definite shape and size.
