Breast Implants- Is It Time to Downsize or Replace Yours?

Thanks to breast implants women can have luscious curves and a perky bust, even if they aren’t naturally well-endowed. Do you have implants? Come on in to the Plastic Surgery Center of Nashville; we can help you with all of your breast implant needs. Whether you need implants for the first time, need implant replacement or want to change the size of your bust, our skilled female plastic surgeons are ready to create the breasts of your dreams.

While breast implants are a long lasting solution for larger and fuller breasts, they do require a bit of maintenance. Implants don’t last forever and they may need replacement after several years. As styles and trends change, and as the body ages, some women decide to downsize their implants. They still want the shape and fullness an implant offers, but prefer a smaller size. Meeting regularly with a surgeon that specializes in breast implants can help you stay on top of maintenance and ensure that your implants always look their best.

Breast Implant Replacement

Saline and silicone breast implants are both deemed safe by the FDA, although women shouldn’t expect them to last forever. Getting breast implants is committing to a lifetime of maintenance, but with almost 300,000 women opting for the procedure in the U.S. each year, the maintenance is often worth the results.

There are many reasons a breast implant might need replacement. Both saline and silicone implants can rupture. When a saline implant breaks the salt water solution inside drains into the body where it is harmlessly absorbed. Silicone implants rupture too. Many women don’t notice the rupture, especially if the scar tissue surrounding the implant remains intact. Broken implants require a second surgery to replace them.

We can help you determine if it’s time to replace your implants. Contact us if you have a broken implant and our expert surgeons will discuss your options with you.

Breast Implant Reduction

While some women opt for breast implants to create a fuller, larger bust, others choose the surgery to restore volume lost due to age, pregnancy or breastfeeding. Some women with large implants may want to downsize as they age to create a more natural look. Contact us and explore your options.

Do you love your breasts? If not, it might be time to consider breast augmentation… or maybe downsizing of your current implants. If you’re in the Nashville area give the Plastic Surgery Center of Nashville a call; our female surgeons are ready to help you look and feel your best.
