breast reconstruction and implants

I saw a patient of mine who had had 9 implant replacement procedures at another hospital who continued to have discomfort from the implant. I usually tell patients that Implant based reconstruction, while it certainly offers potentially a quicker upfront recovery potentially, may involve several implant exchanges or revision procedures in the future related to the implant (deflation, shift in position, visible surface asymmetries on the skin that are seen). On the other hand, breast implants for reconstruction can be the best option for other patients, depending on their history and physical examination.
