Breast Implant Removal & Replacement in Denver, CO
About Breast Augmentations at Atagi Plastic Surgery & Skin AestheticsAfter years of having breast implants, women may find they no longer wish to have implants or may feel the need to have their implants removed and replaced for various reasons. Some may desire a different cup size or may want to exchange their saline implants for silicone. Other women may require new implants due to a saline implant rupture, a “flat tire,” a leaking silicone implant, or a hardening of the breast implant, known as a capsular contracture. Dr. Tanya Atagi performs breast implant removal procedures under a local anesthetic in the comfort of the office. A small incision is made under the breast to remove your implant and any necessary scar tissue. You may resume normal activities within one to two weeks after surgery. Should you desire removal and replacement of breast implants, it will be performed in a hospital setting under general anesthesia. After a small incision is made under the breast, the old implant is removed along with any scar tissue, and the new implant will be placed into the breast pocket. The incision is sutured closed and a surgical bra is placed. We recommend two weeks of non-strenuous activities, gradually resuming full activity after four weeks. Depending on your individual circumstances, Dr. Atagi may recommend that a breast lift be performed in conjuncture with implant removal, or removal and replacement of breast implants, for the best aesthetic results.
