Learning about breast implant exchange

Breast implant exchange or revision breast surgery is commonly performed by Dr. Robbins at Des Moines Plastic Surgery™. Breast implant exchange is most commonly performed in women who:

  • desire new implants
  • desire a different size from their current implant size
  • have implants that were placed many years ago and the implants need to be replaced because they have developed hardness (called capsular contracture) or have ruptured.

Should I replace them with saline or silicone implants?

The most common reason for implant exchange is replacing saline implants for the new silicone gel implants which typically provide a more natural look and feel to the breasts. Saline rippling, firmness and overall dissatisfaction with the appearance of the breasts are common reasons to exchange to silicone. Dr. Robbins and his staff can assist you with your concerns and help you select the procedure and implants that are right for you. Dr. Robbins has years of experience with breast surgery, particularly in the area of breast augmentation and breast implant exchange and revision.

What can I expect?

Breast implant exchange typically involves using the original scar for access to the implant. General anesthesia is required to remove the old implants and replace new ones. The implants are removed and the internal “capsule” is removed and modified as well. The new implants are prepared and inserted in the original, now modified, pocket. In some cases, the pocket location (above or below the muscle) can be adjusted and also minor lifting of the loose skin can be accomplished as well. The recovery time is much faster with implant exchange compared to the original implant surgery because the skin and chest muscle have previously been stretched from the original implants. Dr. Robbins performs numerous breast and body contouring procedures each week in the in-office operating suite at his Des Moines facility. Dr. Robbins performs breast augmentations, as well as breast lifts, breast reductions and many other plastic surgery procedures.

What is the next step?

The next step is to call our office at (515) 221-9999 to set up a cosmetic consultation to meet Dr. Robbins and discuss your situation. Dr. Robbins wants all of his patients to feel good about their goals and any surgery they choose. An office consultation is a no-pressure meeting with office staff and Dr. Robbins to talk more about your goals and answer any questions you might have.

If you wish to learn more before your consultation, you can also visit our Patient Testimonials and visit the Plastic Surgery Organization website at www.plasticsurgery.org. This is a professional organization that oversees and certifies Dr. Robbins and other board-certified plastic surgeons.

Still, each patient has a unique body and medical history. Even hours of web research will not lead you to a final decision. Actually, web research often leads to more questions and concerns, so having a professional consultation is a must. Call us today at (515) 221-9999 for your consultation, or send us an email under Contact Us.

What do you want to look like when it’s all said and done?

Finding the profile that could make that vision in your head real is an important step. Understanding breast implant profiles can help you determine how far breast implants project out from the chest wall when you’re standing up.

A higher profile implant will “project” farther from your body than a lower one.

The Natrelle INSPIRA® Collection offers five profiles, from low to extra-full, so you can find the fullness you’re looking for.

Book a consultation with Dr. Robbins and the Des Moines Plastic Surgery team to learn more - see link in @dsmplasticsurgery bio for online scheduling.
