When Should I Replace My Breast Implants?

Woman thinking about replacing breast implants in Charlottesville, VA.

Breast augmentation with implants helps women add flattering, feminine curves to their bodies. However, many breast augmentation patients at our Charlottesville, VA, practice ask us a similar question: When should I replace my breast implants? While breast implants don’t have a strict “expiration date,” they also don’t last a lifetime. Saline or silicone implants typically last for around 10 to 15 years, but about 20% of women have their implants removed or replaced within 10 years. However, implants only truly need to be replaced if you’re experiencing health complications. This means that even if implants don’t last forever, you can likely enjoy your beautiful results for many years to come.
