Breast Implant Exchange
Many women decide that their breast implants no longer fit into their lifestyle or decide that a different implant size or type is needed. In both cases, breast implant removal is an effective choice. Some patients may also change their minds on the type of breast implant and may wish to undergo breast implant exchange to switch from saline to silicone breast implants or vice versa.
Considerable fluctuations in weight, pregnancy, and the aging process can also cause changes to the aesthetic of the breast following breast enhancement. Dr. Klenke and her team can perform a breast implant exchange in these cases to address drooping, boost breast shape, and improve the breasts’ overall appearance.

More Information About Breast Implant Exchange
Breast Implant Exchange is often performed under general anesthesia. Your surgeon may need to remove tissue, replace an implant or manipulate breast tissue and skin to create the desired result. The procedure will be thoroughly tailored for your distinct needs.
Swelling and bruising are to be expected and should clear up over the coming weeks. A compression garment may need to be worn during the recovery process to help manage swelling and provide additional support.
