Breast Implant Exchange Miami | Elite Plastic Surgery

What is Breast Implant Exchange?

Breast implant exchange, also known as breast implant replacement, involves removing and replacing existing breast implants. This procedure can address various issues, such as implant malfunction, aesthetic changes, or personal preferences.

Why Consider a Breast Implant Exchange?

There are several reasons why you might consider a breast implant exchange:

Change in Aesthetic Goals

  • Desire for a Different Size: Over time, personal preferences can change. You might want larger or smaller implants to better match your current aesthetic goals or body shape.
  • Change in Shape: Some individuals may seek implants with a different profile, such as switching from round to teardrop-shaped implants, to achieve a more natural look.
  • Switching Implant Type: Advancements in implant technology or personal preference might drive the decision to switch from saline to silicone implants or vice versa, based on the desired feel and appearance.

Aging Implants

  • Lifespan of Implants: Breast implants are not lifetime devices. They typically need replacement after 10-15 years due to wear and tear. Over time, the outer shell of the implant can weaken, leading to potential issues.
  • Natural Aging: As the body ages, changes in skin elasticity and breast tissue can alter the appearance and feel of implants. An exchange can help maintain a youthful and aesthetically pleasing appearance.


  • Capsular Contracture: This is a condition where scar tissue forms around the implant, causing it to harden and potentially cause discomfort or distortion in the breast shape. An implant exchange can address this issue.
  • Implant Rupture: Over time, the risk of implant rupture increases. If an implant ruptures, it will need to be replaced to restore the breast’s appearance and prevent potential health issues.
  • Implant Shifting: Implants can sometimes move or shift from their original position, affecting the symmetry and aesthetics of the breasts. An exchange can correct this displacement.

Health Concerns

  • Reducing Complications: Certain types of implants, like textured implants, have been associated with a higher risk of complications such as Breast Implant-Associated Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma (BIA-ALCL). Opting for a smoother or more modern implant type can mitigate these risks.
  • Technological Advances: Newer implants are often designed with improved materials and construction techniques that reduce the likelihood of complications and offer better long-term outcomes.

Who is a Good Candidate for Breast Implant Exchange?

You may be a suitable candidate for breast implant exchange if you:

  • Desire a Change in Appearance: Wish to alter the size, shape, or type of your implants.
  • Experience Discomfort: Have discomfort or complications such as capsular contracture, rupture, or implant shifting.
  • Notice Aging Implants: Have implants that are 10-15 years old and need replacement.
  • Face Health Concerns: Need to address health issues or concerns related to your existing implants.
  • Seek Enhanced Aesthetic Results: Want to take advantage of advancements in implant technology and surgical techniques.
