When considering breast augmentation, patients may not realize that their breast implants will need to be removed or replaced after a certain amount of time. Although this may seem like a downside of having breast augmentation, silicone breast implants are made to be long-lasting and actually last anywhere from one to two decades. The eventual removal or replacement of breast implants helps ensure longer-term safety and satisfaction from results. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides silicone breast augmentation to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.
How to Pick Your Implants
You will have the opportunity to discuss your goals from breast augmentation with your surgeon during your consultation. You may want to consider bringing photos of your ideal breasts to show your surgeon what you are looking to achieve. Your surgeon will recommend implants of different shapes and sizes to you based on your desired outcomes.
Silicone Breast Augmentation Procedure
Breast augmentation is performed as an outpatient procedure while you are under general anesthesia. During surgery, small incisions will be made in concealed areas around the breasts, such as along the areola, near the armpits, or under the natural fold of your breasts. The implants are then placed into the chest, the incisions are sutured closed and surgery is completed.
Do I Have to Replace My Implants?
Your breast implants will almost always need to be removed or replaced at least once in your lifetime. Urgent reasons to have your implants removed or replaced are if your implant ruptures, or if a capsular contracture occurs. Capsular contracture is a condition in which the scar tissue around your implant hardens, constricts the implants, and causes pain and deformity. If your implant begins to show signs of rippling on the surface of the skin, you may want them removed or replaced. If you do not have these experiences with your implants and they remain durable, it is likely that over time your breasts will naturally begin to sag with age and need to be re-augmented to remain aesthetically pleasing with the use of breast implants.Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides silicone breast augmentation to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations.
