Breast Implant Replacement in Atlanta, GA
Overtime, women who received breast augmentation may need to revise it, and therefore, can decide to have a breast implant replacement. Breast implant replacement (or exchange) can be performed for many reasons, such as improvement of cosmetic appearance, change in sizes of implants or desiring a different type of implant; in some cases, the reason for a replacement implant surgery is a ruptured implant or a capsular contracture.
At SurgiCare Arts & Aesthetics, Angelina Postoev, MD, FACS, a triple board-certified cosmetic surgeon, and Christopher Ibikunle, MD, FACS, offer breast implant replacement for women in Atlanta, Lawrenceville, Suwanee, Johns Creek, and the surrounding areas of Georgia.
What is Capsular a Contracture and How to Fix It
A capsulectomy is surgical removal of a capsule made of scar tissue that sometimes forms and thickens around a breast implant, called a capsular contracture.
The main reason to remove a capsular contracture is that it can shrink and harden causing visual deformity and undesirable appearance to the breast area as well as significant discomfort. A capsulectomy can be performed with removal of capsular contracture and implant exchange.
How Much Does Implant Exchange Cost in Atlanta?
The cost for implant exchange can start around $7,000 and will depend on the patient’s specific needs and desires. For example, the price can vary if the new implants are silicone or saline, if we are fixing a capsular contracture that needs to be removed along with the existing implant, or if we are exchanging implants to adjust shape and size.
