Four Questions to Ask Your Plastic Surgeon About Breast Implant Replacement

November 5, 2021Silicone,Breast,Implants,On,Black,Background,,Silicone,Breast,Implants


Breast implant replacement may become necessary following breast implant rupture or leak. It may also be necessary due to malposition, implant rippling or wrinkling, or similar aesthetic issues.

In some cases, the desire for breast implant revision arises from wanting to change aesthetics such as size and shape, or to switch implant types. In others, breast implant revision is performed to permanently remove implants and restore the breasts to their natural size. In all of these instances, your choice of plastic surgeon will play a direct role in your comfort, safety, and results.

What Should I Know About My Plastic Surgeon?

Your plastic surgeon should be board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, making one of the most important questions, “Are you board-certified through the ABPS?” The ABPS is the only certifying board for plastic surgeons that is recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties.

In addition to being board-certified, your plastic surgeon should perform breast implant replacement in a hospital or accredited surgical center. Another important question is, “Where do you perform breast implant replacement surgery?”

When you are undergoing breast implant revision, it is important to understand your options. Be sure to ask your plastic surgeon about the types of breast implants they offer along with questions like, “What can I expect from implant revision surgery?”

And remember, just because a plastic surgeon is board-certified and has hospital permissions does not mean they are particularly skilled at breast implant replacement. Gauge your surgeon’s experience by asking, “How many of these procedures do you perform – on average – in a year?” Ask to see before and after pictures as well.

Your plastic surgeon should be willing to listen to your questions and provide honest and useful answers in return. Be sure to write down any additional questions you may have before your consultation to help ensure you are receiving all of the information you need to make the best decision for your body.

Chin Liposuction 🤝 Morpheus8 

When it comes to rejuvenating your look, some patients choose to enhance their beauty with a powerful duo: Morpheus8 and chin liposuction. Why? Because Morpheus8's advanced skin tightening and contouring, combined with chin liposuction's precision, create a harmonious synergy that defines jawlines and restores youthful glow! 

The patient that was featured in this reel was treated with Chin Liposuction, Facetite and Morpheus8 to her jawline 👏🏻

Liposuction of the chin is a short and minimally invasive procedure that can be done under local anesthesia. Many patients choose this over noninvasive methods (CoolSculpting) as it provides a more precise result, with a larger amount of fat removal, and only requires 1 session.⁠⁠
