  • Breast Implant Exchange

    Do you want different breast implants? Breast implant exchange is a surgical procedure where existing breast implants are removed and replaced with new breast implants. This can be very simple and quite painless if no other work needs to be done.  If there are other problems such as capsular contracture, implant malposition or sagging breast tissue – other additional procedures may need to be performed.

    Goal To fix implant and/or breast tissue problems.
    Facility Surgery Center or Hospital
    Anesthesia General anesthesia if the muscle needs to be adjusted or manipulated.  Local anesthesia if no tissue adjustments are needed.
    Hospital stay Most patients choose to go home after surgery.
    Assistance You will be able to walk around, feed and bathe yourself. Depending on your pain medication requirements, you may not be able to care for others or drive a car.
    Walking You are encouraged to walk around as much as possible to help reduce the risk of DVT and thromboembolism.
    Showering After 48 hours you should remove your bra and take a shower.
    Exercise You should do mild/gentle stretching exercises immediately after surgery to prevent your arm and chest muscles from getting tight. Light exercise is ok 1 week after surgery with your new breasts well supported.   When you are able to resume arm exercises depends on how much “tissue adjusting” was performed.
    Sex Wait 1 week because you don’t want to increase your blood pressure during the early healing period. After 1 week, sex is ok ONLY if your partner is able resist touching your new breasts. You are the only person allowed to touch your breasts for the 6 weeks following surgery.
    Work Depending on your type of work you can resume light office work as soon as you feel you are able to do so. Most people take at least a long weekend off of work.
    Swelling Usually peaks around 3 days and gradually goes away.
    Bruising If present, should subside within 1-2 weeks.
    Follow-up Appointments 1-3 days after surgery, 2 weeks, 8 weeks, 6 months, 1 year.
