Over time, the shape and size of your breast implants and overlying tissues can affect the appearance of the breasts. With breast implant exchange surgery, you can change the size, style, and projection of the  breasts. Dr. D’Agostino may also address migration, rupture, deformity and discomfort associated with capsular contracture.

Breast Implant Exchange Candidates

To be considered a good candidate for Revision Breast Surgery, you should be in overall good health, a non-smoker, and have a BMI of 30 or less. Dr. D’Agostino also recommends that her patients be at a stable weight for at least 6 months. Women who are concerned about the shape, size, condition, or proportion of their breast implants can benefit from breast implant exchange surgery.

Breast implant exchange can easily be combined with a breast lift or included in a mommy makeover. If you’re planning to become pregnant or breastfeed, Dr. D’Agostino can discuss your options for taking extra steps accordingly.

The Breast Implant Exchange Procedure

Breast implant exchange begins by administering anesthesia. Our double-board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. D’Agostino, will create the planned incisions which are most commonly under the breast. From there, Dr. D’Agostino will remove the old implant and place the implant in the breast pocket. Once in place, the incisions will be closed with absorbable sutures, and you’ll be made ready for your recovery.

Breast Implant Exchange Recovery

Breast implant exchange typically requires 1-2 weeks of downtime. You’ll be instructed to limit your activity level and focus on resting throughout this phase, regularly checking in with Dr. D’Agostino to monitor your progress. One essential step is wearing a specialized surgical bra, which helps support your new breasts and relieves pressure from your incisions. Dr. D’Agostino will give detailed instructions on caring for your incisions, taking medications, and more during your pre-operative appointment. It may take 3-6 months for your implants to settle into their final appearance fully, and swelling will continue to subside. One year after breast implant exchange surgery, your incisions should have faded significantly, and you can enjoy your results for years to come.

I knew two things were most important to me when looking for the right surgeon: the results and bedside manner. I feel so grateful to have hit the jackpot with Dr D who gave me the BEST of both of those. From the first moment I met her in the consult, I knew she was different from most doctors. She is incredibly kind, sweet, patient, and attentive. She made me feel cared for in a way that’s hard to put into words, but when you’re preparing for a big surgery, it’s the exact type of energy that puts you at total ease. Dr D not only answered all my questions, on multiple different occasions, leading up to surgery but she was extremely patient with them all. 

Dr.D is amazing and truly the best!

The results are better than I imagined and I am so grateful to have found Dr. D. I couldn’t have made a better choice then choosing Dr.D for my surgery. She is one of a kind!

I am extremely pleased with Dr. D’Agostino.

I am extremely pleased with Dr. D’Agostino. She is always on time, personable and kind! She walked me through every step of my procedure, removed all of my cancer and did an amazing job. My scar is barely noticeable at just a couple weeks after my procedure. I will definitely be back for any other cosmetic needs.
