Everything You Should Know about Implant Removal and Replacement

Implant removal and replacement is the lesser known side of breast augmentation, but it is equally as important. Since priorities change over time, many women find themselves desiring a new or different look as they get older. It’s especially common for younger women to want bigger breasts while older women prefer smaller and firmer breasts instead. Breast implant and removal procedures make it possible for a woman’s look to evolve with her as she ages.

Why Might Implant Removal and Replacement Work For You?

There are two main reasons that you might find yourself contemplating implant removal and replacement: Either your aesthetic priorities have changed and you want to update your appearance, or you are experiencing problems with your existing implants.

Plenty of women make the decision to replace their current implants with smaller implants that better reflect their age and place in life. While a 26-year-old might be happy with D cups, that same woman at the age of 62 might desire a breast enhancement that is smaller, more subtle, and focused on lift and firmness instead of size. Fortunately, implant removal and replacement is a standard process that makes it possible for women to reinvent their appearance. Read More
