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.

1-3 months: I agree with my colleagues that most of the swelling has usually resolved in about one month and you should have a pretty good view of the overall result. However some swelling may persist up to 3 months.

Some: Is normal to have some bruising after any surgery. Bruising after breast augmentation is usually minimal and should resolve within about 2 weeks. If you have persistent or one-sided bruising or swelling, then contact your surgeon.

Gravity wins: If you already have some drooping of the breasts prior to breast augmentation surgery, then your new larger breasts will also droop. Combining a breast lift with your augmentation may help address both issues.

Early on: It may be normal to have some numbness in the early weeks after a chin implant. This should gradually subside over time as it may be due to stretching of the nerve tissue in the region. If this persists, see your physician.
