What is a Breast Implant Exchange?

Breast implants exchange is increasingly common as women who have had previous boob jobs or breast enlargements with implants in the past, are now coming to see us to have them removed or typically exchanged.

Over time, the extra large breast implants from the 1980s, showcased by Pamela Anderson et al, have now drooped and lost their shape, due to their sheer size, as would happen with naturally large breasts over time.

Trends have also changed so that the extra large breast implants of the past are now outdated and the new types of implants are now the more natural-looking types which are more conducive to today’s women who typically do a range of sports from tennis to football to running and the heaviness of the large implants of the past would literally slow them down.

Added to this, the aesthetic look of breasts in 2020s is such that a natural-looking shape, that is not immediately obvious to anyone not in the cosmetic surgery field, is now the preferred option.

The Results

The results of breast enlargement surgery are usually great and the majority of women are delighted with their new enlarged shape. It is normal for the breasts to be a little swollen after the breast augmentation operation and it can take a number of months to see the final results of your boob job.

Silicone implants have been extensively investigated and found to have no association with any diseases. we use high-quality implants from reputable companies for all breast enlargement procedures.

Patient Review

” I don’t even know where to begin. After previously having a bad BA by a different surgeon, I’d lost not only confidence in myself, but in having them redone. I visited a few surgeons, Mr Lambe was recommended to me, and he stood out by far! He listened to my concerns, was so sympathetic to how I felt, and made suggestions on how he could help me, no pressure. My first consultation was at the HCA Wilmslow, I had a second at The Spire Manchester to go over everything, and my surgery at Aset in Liverpool, which was an outstanding place, felt more like a hotel, I didn’t want to leave! Both Mr Lambe and Mr Apostolos together, have given me my self confidence back. I never thought I’d look at my breasts and love how they look, but I do 🤩 The cherry on top was Jayne, the clinic manager. She was there for me every step of they way. She felt more like a friend by the end of the process, (and even now if I have any concerns) I couldn’t be more grateful to you all 🥹 💕 So, if you’re looking for a kind, caring, understanding, amazing surgeon, look no further, Mr Lambe is your man!! ”

Once you have been assessed, you will then receive an exact price for your breast enlargement surgery which is clear and transparent so that you can make arrangements for finance (0% finance is available via Spire Manchester) or pay in full to begin the next step of your cosmetic surgery journey to The Most Beautiful You.

Will I have scars? You will have a small scar which is made in the fold of your breast, where your breast meets your chest wall which starts off pink and over time fades to a thin silvery line.

After allowing any post operative swelling to subside and the implants to drop slightly the final result shows after about 12 weeks.

Mr Lambe carefully dissects the pocket area before inserting your textured implants which reduces the amount of movement post-surgery.

You are overweight, with a BMI of over 32, smoke or vape, are in bad health and are taking anti-coagulant medication or are diabetic.

Unfortunately, there are no guarantees in surgery, however, to ensure you have the most accurate choice we use the latest Virtual Reality 3D Visors (known on social media as #BoobGoggles) which show you in virtual reality how your breasts will look after surgery, you can choose the shape and size of your breast implants by looking at your “breasts” in virtual reality and deciding which look suits you.

Your implants are insured for 10 years for legal reasons but if you are happy with them and they don’t cause you any problems then they can stay in a lot longer.

Yes, breastfeeding is perfectly possible after a breast augmentation and in studies there is no evidence of an increase of silicone in breast milk.
