Many people associate breast implant revision with a patient who was unsatisfied with her breast augmentation, but our Naples-Fort Myers area practice also offers revision for patients who simply want to “upgrade” their implants.
What’s better about new implants?
It’s important to understand that one type of implant isn’t necessarily better than another, and patients should instead choose implants that are right for their exact needs. However, recent advances have produced what’s known as “gummy bear” implants. These highly cohesive silicone gel implants maintain their shape even in the rare event of a tear or rupture, and they have a natural feel and look compared with many other options. To take advantage of these benefits, it’s common for patients to want to trade in their implants for this newer variety.
How would exchanging my implants benefit me?
As you probably know, breast implants have a shelf life and therefore usually need to be replaced at some point. Having a board-certified plastic surgeon exchange your implants ensures that you have access to the latest technology, including options such as Strattice™ and SERI® Surgical Scaffold. Patients who undergo breast implant revision are able to achieve an appearance that more closely matches their cosmetic goals with new options for creating the perfect breast size and shape. Depending on the model of your current implants, revision surgery may also provide longer-lasting results.
