Many women with breast implants will need their implants replaced at some point in their lives. This can be for a number of reasons such as: hardening of the tissue around the implant and distortion of the breast capsular contracture ; rupture or leakage of the implant; displacement of the implant into an abnormal position; a desire to increase the size of the implant; and droopiness ptosis of the breast tissue overlying the implant. Replacement of the implant alone is often not sufficient to correct the problem. Other adjunct procedures such removal of the capsule around the implant, adjusting the pocket that the implant sits in, or performing a breast lift may be required. At the Kryger Institute of Plastic Surgery, we have experience in a vast array of surgical and non-surgical procedures.
