What is Breast Implant Exchange?
Breast implant exchange is a surgical procedure that removes or replaces breast implants placed during breast augmentation. The procedure may be indicated for medical reasons or it may be the patient’s personal choice. To provide a satisfactory aesthetic outcome, a cosmetic procedure may be performed during or after breast implant removal. Removal of breast implants is frequently followed by replacement with a different implant type (such as silicone gel) or a breast lift (mastopexy) procedure.
