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.

Should you request a certain bra size?

Believe it or not - no!

Surgeons talk size and projection when it comes to selecting implants. Breast implant size is actually measured in cubic centimeters (cc), not by bra cup size. The larger the implant, the higher the number of cc.

Projection refers to the side profile or the distance that the implant projects from your body.

The amount of volume (cc) and the degree of projection you and your surgeon select will depend on your body type and the shape and fullness you want.

What does GUMMY feel like?

All Natrelle INSPIRA Breast implants are soft, with varying levels of gel squishiness. When you go gummy, you don’t have to sacrifice implant softness. The best way to determine softness is to feel each implant during your consultation.

What does GUMMY mean?

Gummy describes the consistency of silicone gel in Natrelle INSPIRA Breast Implants.

This gummy-like gel sticks together and has a tendency to hold its shape.

Each implant in the INSPIRA collection has a different level of cohesivity, or what surgeons refer to as gumminess.
