Breast Implant Replacement

  Duration: 1 hr 30 min

Breast implant replacement is a breast surgery that involves the removal of your old implant and replacing  it with a newer implant (or removed altogether). Your current implants will be removed as well as any internal scar tissue and the implant pocket is repaired. At the same time Dr. Rotsaert can add new implants in their place. Sometimes Dr. Rotsaert opts for a different placement than the original placed implant, to minimise future issues and widen or narrow the cleavage. This surgical procedure often uses the original incision to minimise any additional scarring.

Alternatively, some women choose to replace the implant with their own fat, which is called a fat transfer, because unlike breast implants, fat transfers uses your own natural tissue, are lifelong and never need to be replaced.
