Hi, this is Dr. Hourglass, and welcome to another video in our channel Wonder Breasts. Today we are going to discuss: Do breast implants need to be replaced? In this channel we discuss everything related to breast surgery. Welcome back! This is a common question asked in every clinic: Do implants need to be replaced every ten years? The answer is no. Since breast implants are made of silicone, which is a material that the body does not reject, it does not matter even if it is two or three decades down the road. Breast implants are considered a semi permanent device, and unless issues such as capsule contracture arise, there is no need for breast implants to be replaced or removed.

There are many patients who have undergone the procedure 20 years ago and still retain the intact beauty of their breasts. Of course, there are certain situations that may call for the removal of the implants. If, over time, the breasts have sagged and breast asymmetry and ptosis has developed, a breast revision surgery is recommended to remove the implants and replace them with a new one.

The implants today are of better quality than those produced 10 to 15 years ago. In addition, the implants age with time. The silicone shell has a fatigue level where it gets weak and has a higher risk of rupture over time. For this reason, it is recommended to remove the implant during breast revision surgery regardless if there is a problem or not.

Many patients believe that their implants need to be replaced every ten years due to the ten-year warranty of the product. Like any item you buy, just because the warranty expires does not necessarily mean they are due for replacement. There is no reason to remove and replace the implant unless complications arise. Remember, surgery can make things better but also worse, so make sure to discuss your concerns with your plastic surgeon at all times.
