At Gorgeous Getaways, we understand that beauty is a journey, not a destination. When you embarked on your breast augmentation adventure, you not only invested in your aesthetic aspirations but also began a relationship with your implants. As time progresses, these implants might require a little TLC. Curious to know when it might be time for a replacement and what the journey involves? Let us guide you through it.

Signs It Might Be Time for Your Breast Implant Replacement

  1. Implant Deflation or Rupture: Notice one of your breasts looking uneven? If you opted for saline implants, this could be a sign of deflation. Silicone implant ruptures are more discreet, manifesting as shape changes or lumps. For this very reason, we advise regular MRIs to catch those silent ruptures early.
  2. Capsular Contracture: If your breast starts to feel hard or appears distorted, the culprit might be the scar tissue tightening around your implant.
  3. Evolving Beauty Preferences: As the years pass, your aesthetic tastes might evolve. Maybe you’re pondering a different implant size, shape, or type. And that’s okay!
  4. Implant Rippling: Bending forward or adopting certain postures might reveal wrinkles or ripples in the implant.
  5. Clocking Implant Years: While modern implants are built to last, they’re not eternal. Consider a check-in with us after 10-15 years to evaluate their condition.

Your Replacement Procedure with Gorgeous Getaways: Time and Recovery

  • Duration: Typically, a breast implant procedure takes from 1-3 hours. This accounts for any adjustments, such as removing scar tissue or altering the implant placement.
  • Recovery: Just like your first augmentation, expect to be back to light duties in about a week. Fully energetic activities? We’d suggest waiting 4-6 weeks. And don’t worry about any swelling, bruising, or mild discomfort – we’ve got all the aftercare tips to see you through.
  • Incisions: Our surgeons, always conscious of aesthetics, often utilize your initial incisions. However, in specific scenarios, a new approach might be best. Please request a firmquote to see what your surgeon recommends.

Embracing the Journey

Remember, breast implant replacement, while sharing similarities with your first augmentation, can present its own nuances:

  • Scar Tissue: Capsular contracture needs a delicate touch, ensuring the scar tissue is removed without harming surrounding areas.
  • Switching it Up: If you’re considering swapping saline for silicone or vice versa, or even altering the implant size, the breast pocket needs to be adapted appropriately.
  • Safety First: As always, your safety is paramount. Rest assured, with our experienced, board-certified plastic surgeons, you’re in the best hands.
