Sometimes breast implants deteriorate, especially those used 15 or 20 years ago, which were of lower quality (or good quality, but less resistant cover).
If the implant is reached break can perform delicate surgery to replace. However, often not enough to replace the implant by another, but we have to add remodelers procedures of the breast to get the final look is even better than when the patient came to our clinic.
Types of replacement of breast implants
One particular case, the PIP prosthesis, which involves a different technique. Although FEMM Surgery and Aesthetic Medicine have never used this type of implant, yes we have replaced many of them in recent years.
What is done in these cases is to remove the prosthesis and the surrounding tissue to avoid potential problems associated with the use of these implants.
Explantation of breast implants
We also raises the case of patients who already have certain age and prefer to stop carrying a breast implant. There are also solutions for them: from the implant removal surgery associating remodeling for mom not seen on their way badly damaged after performing explantation.
In this case we use techniques lipotransference or lipofilling, ie, we get fat from areas where the patient has plenty and introduce the breast as a compensatory effect of the removal of the implant (thus also the treated area is improved).
Lipofilling is a fairly new technique that provides very good results in those patients who otherwise would not be entirely satisfied. In the case of patients who want more volume, we repeated the procedure twice, achieving a highly satisfactory result.
From FEMM we like to insist that should always be in the hands of plastic surgeons qualified and verified. These procedures while not difficult to implement require special care and precision so that the result is as close as possible to what the patient wants.
