How long will your implants last?
Many will have some concerns when it comes to breast augmentation procedure. One of these questions is to know if their breast implants in Palm Beach are permanent or they need to be replaced after some time.
Breast implants life expectancy
What every woman should know is that each woman is different so each case is different. How long breast implants will last depends on your lifestyle and your body; the implant type and the surgeon who performed the procedure will also play their parts.
There is no need to have breast implants lifted or replaced regularly. This is one of the misconceptions that make some women keep away from breast augmentation since they worry about the future procedures and long-term costs. The truth is that some implants will last longer than people think. Sometimes there will be no need to repeat the surgery for many years. However, in some cases, you may need to have one or even two surgeries for follow-up. A second surgery is only needed if you are not happy with the results or if you develop some complications. There is no guarantee of how long your breast implants can last; some can last an entire lifetime, and others may last only a few years but the majority last between 10 to 20 years.
According to the available reports from FDA, only 20 percent of women who got breast implants will need to have their breast implants replaced or repaired within the first 10 years.
Other reasons to replace implants
Some women may choose replacing the implants because the first implants are not suitable anymore when they have aged. Any breast, regardless if it is implanted or natural, is exposed to gravity. Aging may affect breast implants by causing visible ripples, changes in size and sagging. When women get implants before giving birth, they may require new implants after giving birth to restore their breasts to their original look. When your body reacts to implants by mechanical or immunologic methods, a capsule may form but it is common only with low-grade breast implants. A new surgery will be required to remove the problematic implants and the capsule.
To reduce cases of new implants’ complications, it is good to choose an experienced surgeon who will know the right thing to do.
