Changing Breast Implants

The odds are that at some point, if you have breast implants, you will change them. Sometimes the change is simply to make the breasts larger by replacing the current implant with a larger implant. Or it may be to switch from an older saline implant to one of the newer MemoryGel silicone implants. Perhaps you have an implant that has leaked or developed a capsular contracture. Whatever the reason, the good news is that there is almost no discomfort and minimal recovery associated with replacing one implant for another. During pregnancy, the body slowly changes over nine months to accommodate a growing baby. With a breast augmentation, the body accommodates the new implant, in a space that previously didn’t exist, in less than an hour….and this is why the first breast surgery can be painful. When replacing an implant, the space is already there, and for this reason the recovery is so easy and there is little if any pain associated with the procedure.
