How Long Do I Have to Wait After Implant Removed Before Getting New Ones Placed Back?

I had my breast augmentation 4 months ago, however I dislike the result. They are bigger than I wanted. I want to remove them. However maybe later I would want to replace them for smaller implants. How long is safe to wait for replacement after removal of previous implants?

Breast Implant Exchange

Breast implants can be removed and new implants placed during the same surgery, which is commonly done for patient’s who wish for a different appearance. Although breast implants can be exchanged at any time it is recommended to allow ample time for healing before deciding to make changes to the size or shape. Generally this process takes around six months to a year. If you are 100% sure at four months that you want to change the size or shape of your implants it may be an option but should be carefully thought out and discussed with your surgeon.
