Safe procedure: Breast surgery a relatively safe procedure. Your dr. Will evaluate your individual risks especially with regard to your health status before surgery.Be sure that your doctor is a well-trained, experienced, board certified plastic surgeon. All procedures carry some risks.
A male asked:

Consider exchange: I agree with my colleagues that removal of the implants is not the only option. Is very common to remove old her style implants and exchange with new implants to retain breast shape and size and to tailor the breast lift around the new implants.Be sure that your doctor is a well-trained, experienced, board certified plastic surgeon. All procedures carry some risks.
