Upgrade Your Look
At Aesthetic Surgery of Charlotte breast implant replacement is a surgical procedure that involves removing and replacing existing breast implants with new ones. The procedure can be performed for various reasons, including implant rupture, capsular contracture, dissatisfaction with the size or shape of the existing implants, or switching from saline to silicone implants.
Back and Better Than Before
Breast implant replacements are great for patients with older implants that are becoming noticeably deflated, misshapen, or ruptured. The breast implant replacement procedure has a relatively easy recovery with few restrictions, and the results can last for over a decade, just like the original implants.
Those who have developed new health complications since their initial implants should bring up their medical history during their consultation. We will take time to discuss your options and ensure a breast implant replacement is right for you.
Say Goodbye to Sagging
During your consultation for breast implant replacements Charlotte patients will meet with one of Charlotte's best plastic surgeons, Dr. Adam C. Augenstein, to discuss your reasons for wanting to replace your breast implants. He will ask you about your goals and expectations for the procedure and what you would like to achieve with breast implant replacement.
Dr. Augenstein will also ask you about your medical history, including any prior surgeries or medical conditions that could impact the procedure or your recovery. Based on your eligibility, he will discuss the different types of breast implants available and help you choose the best option for your desired outcome.
Freshen Up Your Figure
During the breast implant removal Charlotte plastic surgeon, Dr. Augenstein, will make incisions in the breast area, remove the existing implants, and replace them with new ones. Since we use general anesthesia, you will not feel anything during the breast implant replacement. Many patients also undergo a breast lift during their replacement to give them extra support and help them achieve their desired results. Dr. Augenstein will go over what to expect and what will happen during your procedure when you arrive for your consultation. In planning your procedure, he will carefully consider your anatomy and the specific results you want to achieve.
New and Improved
After the procedure, you will see a noticeable improvement in the appearance of your breasts. As time passes, your implants will settle and look more natural, further improving their appearance.
The final results of your breast implant replacement will include brand-new, voluminous breast implants that replace your old or ruptured ones. If you choose to undergo a simultaneous breast lift while getting your replacement implants, you can also expect perkier, lifted breasts. You can expect to see these results anywhere between three and six months after your procedure.
Replace and Refresh
Immediately after your procedure, you will notice fuller breasts. It is common to experience light bruising, swelling, and redness for the first few days. This should subside in the first week or two as your breasts heal. You can expect your implants to “fluff and drop,” just like your initial implants, after three to six months.
You will need to avoid strenuous activity and sleep on your back for approximately one month. During this time, you will also need to avoid wearing tight bras or bras with underwires. Dr. Augenstein will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions specific to your procedure. We are always here to answer any questions and support your recovery however we can.
Breast implant replacements typically do not hurt, though they can be uncomfortable. Your breasts may feel sore or bruised around the incisions as you heal. You may also feel a heaviness in the breast that can be slightly uncomfortable. In order to alleviate any discomfort you experience during the healing process, your surgeon may approve the use of cold compresses and pain medication.
Patients often choose to pair their breast implant replacement with a breast lift or another procedure, so total costs can vary. Scheduling your Charlotte breast implant replacement consultation is the best way to get an exact price point for your procedure. We can answer any payment, pricing, and financing questions at that time.
As long as you are in good overall health, there is no age limit for breast implant replacement! If you are healthy and it has been a considerable amount of time since you got your implants, or one has ruptured, schedule your consultation with us today.
