Change of breast implants

All experts and regulatory institutions recommend changing implants after 12 years. Although there are patients who can remain under control, monitoring the condition of the implants, the general rule is to change them.

This makes implant replacement a very frequent surgery. This surgery allows changes to be made in the shape or size of the implant. It also allows to improve the position of the gland.


This surgery can last an average of 45 minutes and is outpatient. The post-surgery is simple, fast and painless.

I recommend to my patients an average of 3 days of rest before starting all their activities. If they come outside Bogota, the recommendation is to remain 5 days before starting the return trip.

Frequently Asked Questions

1¿When should breast prostheses be changed?
The general recommendation is to change them every 10 or 12 years. There are special conditions in which an annual follow-up with ultrasounds can be done to monitor the implants and it is not necessary to change them.
2¿Will the pain be the same as in the first surgery?
DO NOT. As the tissues are already expended and there is space for the implant, when the prostheses are changed, the pain is minimal.
3¿How long is the recommended rest time?
4 ¿What can I improve when I change the implants?
You can improve the shape, the position and change the volume. With the most modern implants, the projection improves and the shape looks more natural. Likewise, breasts can be seen and felt firmer.
