How Long Should Breast Implants Last?
One of the most common questions we receive regarding breast augmentation Maryland is “how long will my breast implants last?”
For many people breast implants will last a lifetime when properly cared for and not impacted by rupture or defects that will require their replacement.
Manufacturers of breast implants design them to last a lifetime. We often hear that breast implants should be replaced every 10 years. This is simply not the case, we have many patients that have had implants for over 20 years. Of course this varies from patient to patient and over time many patients opt for breast implant revision surgery due to many factors including pregnancy, weight gain etc.
Breast Implant rupture does happen, but not very often. If one or both of your implants rupture due to trauma, capsular contracture, or defect no need to worry. Both silicone and saline ruptures are not know to cause adverse health effects. Replacing the ruptured implant quickly is recommended.
