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.

Exchange Method

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. Our board-certified plastic surgeons use 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 performed 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.
