Changing breast implants under local anesthesia.
Breast implant exchange - implants too small!
- If your surgery was done today, you can have larger implants placed within the week, if your surgeon is willing.
- After this 'golden' period, it is best to wait 3 months.
- Please contact your surgeon at once, send him the photos and come up with a plan you both can live with.
- In these situations, only your own surgeon can tell you the cost -
- I have seen surgeons manage such problems by charging another full fee (at one end) to doing the revision for free (at the other extreme.)

Too small after being too big.
There are no "absolute rules" when it comes to timing to return to the opera room; then, given your situation, I would suggest patience and evaluation of the outcome procedure several months ffrom now. Again, practices may vary; in my practice, I would exchange breast implants under general anesthesia.
