Making the decision to undergo breast augmentation surgery can be life-changing, particularly if you’ve always been interested in this procedure. Breast augmentation can restore confidence and boost a woman’s self-esteem; the procedure can also correct any issues associated with lost volume as a result of weight loss or pregnancy and breastfeeding.
One of the most popular questions that women have after undergoing breast augmentation surgery is if they’ll need to go through the procedure again. After all, breast implants are man-made devices and may not last forever.
It is common misconception that implants need to be replaced every 10 years. The truth is, if you are still happy with your results and not experiencing any implant problems, then nothing needs to be done. The exception to this recommendation is if the implant ruptures, leaks, or becomes misshapen as a result of scar tissue thickening around the implant (also referred to as capsular contracture).
These reasons are precisely why it’s so important for patients to pick the right breast implants for their breast augmentation procedure. There are multiple types of implants available on the market today, each with their own warranties and coverage. Your plastic surgeon can help you determine which implant is best for your desired shape; additionally, your plastic surgeon can provide you with critical details about any warranties associated with the implants.
