Breast Augmentation Toronto has been a popular cosmetic procedure for a long time. The implants put during the procedure are often safe and comfortable. However, due to personal choice, some choose to have these implants removed permanently. It could also be for exchanging the current implants for a different shape, size or brand. Deciding to undergo any invasive procedure is not an easy decision to make. If you have been confused about whether to undergo a breast implant replacement or not, we are here to tell you more about it. This will help you to make an informed decision about the same.
How long does the procedure last?
Various factors determine how long the procedure will take. It usually takes about 2 hours to switch the implants. If you have decided to undergo a breast lift and reshape your breasts, it will add to the time taken to carry out the procedure.
What happens during the procedure?
Different techniques can be followed. The surgeon will decide on the technique depending on what is the goal of undergoing the breast implant replacement. During the procedure, the incisions which will be used for removing the old implant and placing the new one will be where the original incision was. It could also be placed in the natural breast crease, the inframammary fold (IMF). This provides better visibility and access to the implant. A technique known as En bloc breast implant removal is used to remove the implant. This allows the surrounding scar capsule tissue to remain in one-pieces. If there are any undesired, tightened scar tissues or if the implants have ruptured, the surgeon will most probably remove the complete implant capsule. In some cases, a capsulotomy opens up a pocket which allows space for the free movement of the new implant. Whereas, Capsulorrhaphy is performed when you want to reduce the size of the implant pocket. This procedure allows the breast to move back into the ideal position.
When do you need to consider replacing the implant?
When it comes to implants there is no set expiry date or time which needs to be followed. The implants don’t need to be replaced if they are intact and not causing trouble. Most often, people decide to change the implant because they want their breasts to look and feel different. Usually, there is no medical concern behind changing the implant. However, it becomes imperative to undertake replacement when there is an implant rupture. If the breast feels asymmetric or is causing discomfort, it is wise to undergo replacement or removal.
