Schimbare implant mamar

Breast implant replacement surgery can be done in the following cases:

  • to modify the size, shape or type of implant
  • to correct complications resulting from a previously performed breast augmentation

If the initial implant is replaced with a smaller size, or if under the weight of the initial implant, the breasts are looser, a breast augmentation operation can be performed. mastopexy at the same time as the implant replacement surgery.

REASONS FOR CHANGING THE IMPLANT

  • you want larger or smaller implants than the ones you already have, or you want them to have a different shape
  • you have saline implants and they have deflated or are leaking (although implants are increasingly reliable, older generation implants and especially saline implants can have this problem)
  • you have capsular contracture or your implants have changed position
  • breast tissue has changed due to significant fluctuations in weight
  • you want to change your saline implants for the latest generation of gel implants
  • you want the permanent removal of implants

HOW THE OPERATION GOES

Changing the implant size

If you want implants of a different size, the surgeon will most often use the initial incision. For a larger implant, the doctor will enlarge the pocket or breast space. For a smaller implant, the doctor may be able to surgically reduce the size of the pocket with strategically placed sutures to support the prosthesis. A facelift may also be performed at the same time.

Muscle contraction (shrinkage of the tissue surrounding the implant)

The surgeon will probably use the same original incision to remove the hardened capsule and implant and then insert a new implant.

Implant rippling

If the edges of the saline implant become visible and can be felt by palpation, the surgeon will use the initial incision to reposition the implants as they were first inserted. Another type of implant may also be used and placed in a different pocket whose walls are stronger.

Upper nipple and areola repositioning

This procedure requires additional incisions: above the areola-if no significant lift is needed, and if better smoothing and visible repositioning is needed, an incision around the areola and, if necessary, a vertical incision towards the lower breast crease. If it is necessary to remove a large mass of skin (following drastic weight loss) an additional incision will be required. This will extend horizontally under the breast, following its natural curve. If the nipples need to be lifted, they and the areola are left attached to the subcutaneous tissues - the benefit is to preserve sensitivity and the possibility of breastfeeding.

Implant misplacement

Sometimes the pockets are created too close together or too far apart and the breasts will appear badly positioned. To correct this effect, a breast incision is used where the surgeon will manipulate the tissue surrounding the implant and reconstruct the pocket in an optimal position using suture techniques. The surgeon will fix the new implant pocket using other tissues. He or she may recommend an Accellular Dermal Matrix support product.

Implant removal

If the implants are large and the skin has stretched, the surgeon will recommend a breast lift. The removal will be done through the initial incision. The line formed around the implant or capsule is surgically removed to facilitate rapid recovery.

RECOVERY

  • you will need plenty of pillows on your bed to ensure correct positioning: under your legs, under your arms and under your back. The higher the torso, the more pressure in the area is relieved, which helps reduce oedema and pain.
  • Drain tubes will be placed in it and will be removed later at the consultation. The bandages will also be removed at the time recommended by the surgeon.
  • about three days after the operation you will be able to shower. You will have to avoid showers, hot baths and saunas for up to four weeks after surgery.
  • you will wear a compression bra to prevent fluid buildup and swelling and ensure effective support of the implants
  • sutures that do not self-dissolve will be removed after approximately one week
  • slight depigmentation or swelling is possible and will disappear with healing
  • you will be able to resume your professional activity after about ten days
  • if the new implants are larger, you will feel some discomfort until the skin around them is accommodated
  • it takes several months for the new implants to settle into their final position

RESULTS

The results are long-lasting but substantial variations in weight, childbirth or the ageing process will affect the appearance of the breasts over time.

POSSIBLE COMPLICATIONS

  • haematomas and seromas (accumulations of blood or fluid under the skin that will need to be removed)
  • adverse reaction to anesthesia
  • infection, bleeding, inflammation
  • sensory changes
  • scars
  • allergic reactions (to drugs or materials used during surgery)
  • damage to subcutaneous structures
  • unsatisfactory results that may require additional procedures

How does the breast implant replacement surgery go?

Breast implant replacement surgery is a procedure that is tailored to the patient's needs. Whether it is a change in implant size, pain, displacement or rupture of the original implant, such an operation can be a new beginning. The surgical technique depends entirely on the reason why such an operation is needed. In the case of changes in implant size or muscle contractions, the doctor will most often use the incision originally made. This will also be used in the case of implant removal or if the original implant was positioned incorrectly. If we are talking about upper repositioning of the nipple and areola, then a series of additional incisions will be required as necessary.

What are the medical prescriptions for breast implant replacement?

Preparing for a breast implant change involves some recommendations that are good or even mandatory to keep in mind. First of all, a visit to the beautician is necessary to perform a breast ultrasound or mammogram, as well as a palpatory examination. It is also advisable to stop smoking a few weeks before the operation. Taking aspirin, ibuprofen, contraceptives and other drugs that can significantly increase the risk of post-operative bleeding is prohibited.

What are the possible complications after breast implant replacement?

Any operation where surgery is required can bring with it possible post-operative complications. In the case of breast implant replacement surgery, the patient may experience a build-up of blood or fluid under the skin, also known as haematoma or seroma, which must be removed afterwards. We can also talk about the possibility of infections, the appearance of scars, sensory changes in the bust or even allergic reactions to various drugs or materials used during this procedure. As this is an operation that takes place under general anaesthesia, it is best to consult your doctor beforehand to find out the possible risks or adverse reactions that may occur during the change of breast implants.
