Breast Implant Replacement for Older Patients

I’ve met enough healthy, vibrant, and active older men and women to know that it’s ill-advised to make assumptions based on age. What really matters is general health, that patients feel good and don”t have any illnesses. This is certainly true for my Orange County breast augmentation patients looking to replace their breast implants. If they”re in good shape, my advice is the same as it would be for younger patients.

So, why replace breast implants? Clearly, if an implant is ruptured or deflated, replacement is necessary. Implants are also sometimes replaced for cosmetic reasons. Women may want to upgrade to the newer generation of silicone implants. They may want a larger or smaller size implant.

Whatever the reason, the only way to determine if implant replacement is a good option for you is to meet with a board-certified plastic surgeon. They”ll look at your individual case and make a recommendation specifically for you.
