Breast Implant Exchange Questions

Dr. Denis Gonyon Serves Fort Collins, Johnstown, Loveland, Longmont and Nearby Areas of Northern Colorado


What is a breast implant exchange?

Breast implant exchange is a procedure to remove existing breast implants and replace them with new ones.

How do I know if a breast implant exchange is right for me?

Dr. Denis Gonyon can help you determine if you need to replace your breast implants or if a breast implant exchange can help you achieve your aesthetic goals.

What are the most common reasons for a breast implant exchange?

Breast implant exchange procedures are commonly performed to:

  • Upgrade from older breast implants
  • Switch from saline breast implants to silicone breast implants
  • Change the size, shape and style of breast implants
  • Correct a previous breast augmentation procedure

How long do breast implants last?

Although breast implants do not come with an expiration date, most breast augmentation patients can expect their implants to last for at least 10 to 15 years without noticeable changes in contour, profile and size. While breast implants may last upward of 20 years without the need for replacement, they are not intended to be permanent. Women with breast implants will eventually notice changes in the profile and overall appearance of their breasts
