Submitted by Bernabe Vazquez on February 21, 2014
Perhaps you have had breast implant surgery and are suffering from any number of issues that can arise with this surgery.Issues such as capsular contracture, asymmetry, contour problems, infections and rupture, which causes leakage and deflation of the implant. This can lead to discomfort, dissatisfaction and sometimes, severe pain. There are many reasons that might contribute to these occurrences but the most important next step is getting proper care and remedying the situation.
It is a known fact, that breast implants, whether silicone or saline, are not permanent and will need to be exchanged. With the commitment to breast augmentation, comes the commitment to breast exchange surgery.
With this in mind, it is important to do your due diligence and develop a firm relationship with a reputable, board certified and experienced plastic surgeon. The more experienced with breast exchange surgery they are, the better. There will be many decisions to make and you will want to ensure that you are placing your trust in the hands of a plastic surgeon that can offer you the best care possible.
As a plastic surgeon for over twenty-five years, with thousands of patients in our care, Bayshore Cosmetic Surgery has been called upon to perform many breast exchange surgeries in our practice.
First Things First
First and foremost with all our patients is conducting a thorough medical evaluation. It is most important to understand the complexities involving breast exchange surgery. Our goal is to deal with all of the possible complications prior to surgery.
Along with our thorough medical uptake, we may prescribe antibiotics or temporarily remove some medications, request elimination of smoking, ask that you refrain from alcohol prior to surgery and the like.
Gearing up for surgery is strongly advised and will certainly assist with the recovery process.
Your doctor should be able to discuss your options with you and to discuss your wishes as well. He or she should be able to advise you as to the best outcome for your breast exchange surgery. If you are interested in exchanging your implants for another implant, there are several options available to you. How or where the implant will be inserted should be discussed prior to the surgery. Determining how best to proceed given your condition and given your hearts desire, your plastic surgeon should be able to design a plan that includes a healthy and aesthetically pleasing set of breasts. The options include another implant, whether saline, silicone or your own harvested body fat. This last procedure produces a very natural breast and is fast becoming a popular path for breast augmentation.
Typically in our office, we proceed by making an incision around the lower edge of the areola and inserting the Sientra gel implant behind the muscle. Sientra is the only company that provides free new implants in case of Capsular Contracture. This augmentation provides a very natural looking profile as well as a very low complication rate. For breast exchange surgery patients, there may be other considerations that may not permit this procedure. We will be able to ascertain the best approach for each patient individually with tried and true methodology.
