The FDA recommends that those who have silicone or saline breast implants undergo replacement surgery every ten years. Breast implants can be replaced or upgraded in a breast implant replacement surgery.
When you want a breast implant replacement in Houston, we can help. Our clinic, led by Dr. Oren Paul Mushin, is staffed with masters in cosmetic and reconstructive breast surgery, including augmentation, enhancement, lift, reduction, implant removal, and implant replacement.
How Can a Breast Implant Surgery Help Me?
Women in Houston opt for a breast implant replacement surgery primarily due to medical or cosmetic conditions, including:
- A desire to change, enhance or reduce the size of the breasts
- Enhancing the look, texture, or feel of the breast
- Pain from capsular contracture or other medical conditions of the breast
- Concerns about rupture or migration of silicone or saline implant
- Switching between saline and silicone implant
Over time, silicone or saline breast implants can change shape or size. Your natural chest tissue also changes, making your breasts appear or feel different or undesirable.
Though many silicone or saline breast implants generally have a lifetime warranty, the FDA strongly recommends replacing them after ten years. Most women elect to replace their breast implants at or around this time.
Breast implant replacement is not a standard or routine procedure in Houston. Our medical staff tailors and customizes the surgery to your needs, goals, and desires.
Am I A Good Candidate for A Houston Breast Implant Replacement?
You may be the right candidate for a breast implant replacement if:
- You are unhappy with the size, shape, texture, or appearance of your breast implants.
- You are concerned about the condition of your saline or silicone implants.
- You are in good health, at or within your ideal weight, and a nonsmoker with a healthy lifestyle.
During your initial consultation at our clinic in Houston, our expert medical team documents your medical history, discusses your needs, and creates your unique surgical plan. We advise you to stop taking blood thinners and smoking nicotine products for at least a month before and after your breast implant removal surgery.
Dr. Mushin will perform your surgery under general anesthesia to keep you comfortable. He will then reopen the incision from your original enhancement surgery and replace your breast implants according to your needs. The procedure takes around three hours, but we strongly advise taking an entire day off to rest. We strongly recommend having a trusted person drive you home to ensure you get the rest you need after your procedure.
Recovery From Your Breast Implant Replacement Surgery
Rest and recovery following your breast implant replacement surgery is critical. We recommend that you take at least two weeks off to recover. Ideally, you should create a comfortable space at home, move as little as possible, and make your surroundings extra cozy with lots of plush cushions and pillows.
