Breast Implant Exchange
Women choose to have their breast implants exchanged for a variety of reasons. These reasons may include the desire to change to a different size, style, material or shape. Most often the women who visit us for new breast implants in Houston and Webster, TX, want the softer more natural feel of the Mentor MemoryGel® implant. Sometimes an implant exchange accompanies a corrective surgery of the breast. Additionally, implants from the 70s and 80s, in particular, can wear out over time. This procedure can be used to replace an older set of implants.

The exact method of exchanging breast implants depends on the patient’s specific situation. However, the scar left by the original breast augmentation procedure can usually be used again for the exchange.
At Houston Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, we offer you the option of implant insertion with the Keller Funnel®, a device that helps our surgeons efficiently place silicone implants through smaller incisions. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Clayton Moliver, whose expertise in cosmetic breast surgery has made him one of the leaders in the field, uses the funnel as part of a “no touch” procedure, meaning that the implant does not contact your skin or your surgeon’s gloves. This makes for an extremely sterile procedure, and there is evidence that the Keller Funnel may reduce the risk of capsular contracture.
Recovery After Breast Implant Exchange
These procedures are typically peformed as outpatient surgery, so patients return home the same day. While situations vary, most patients can return to normal activities in as little as 24 hours.

Dr. Moliver has given me back parts of myself that I never thought I’d be able to have again, not to mention the self-confidence to match. He is extremely charming and has a great sense of humor. I’ve always loved the staff here as well. I’d give ten stars if I could. There is no other surgeon I’d see.”Dr. Moliver Request Your Consultation
