Whether implants were originally placed for cosmetic or reconstructive reasons, they will most likely need to be replaced at some point during a patient’s lifetime. This can be due to deflation, rupture, malposition or infection. Natural aging of the breast over the implant may also be a reason for breast implant replacement or augmentation. Alternatively, implants can be removed entirely and the native breast tissue reshaped to restore natural contour. Often patients choose to replace older saline implants for the cohesive silicone gel “gummy bear” implants.
Another great option for implant replacement is IDEAL IMPLANTS. This is a newer breast implant option that provides a natural look and feel. They are also safer than silicone breasts or traditional saline due to its layered design. These implants do not wrinkle or crease like other implants, making this the right choice for individuals looking to give their current implants a facelift. Talk to a professional at Boulder Plastic Surgery about breast implant or augmentation if you’re interested.
