How long do breast implants last

If you are interested in getting or removing breast implants, you might have heard the statement that breast implants are for a lifetime and don’t need to be removed. Or you need to remove or replace them from time to time. No, these statements have nothing to do with the truth. 

Breast implants don’t provide permanent results but last for 10 to 20 years. They need to be removed or replaced after a decade, not after a few months. They are designed for an extended period and without complications. It depends on the patients how well they have taken care of them.

Using Anesthesia

The breast implant treatment requires general anesthesia or sedative medications to ensure the patient remains relaxed and calm throughout the surgery. Your cosmetic surgeon will decide the type of anesthesia during the therapy after determining the severity of the patient’s condition and operation.

Breast Implant Insertion and Placement 

The breast implant surgery begins with a cut or incision under the breast or around the nipple area to place the saline (saltwater) implant or silicone material implant. The placement and accurate positioning of the implant depends on its type, the surgeon’s suggestions, and the patient’s demands for breast enlargement. 

Closing the cuts

After placing and accurately positioning breast implants, the cosmetic surgeon closes the wounded area using stitches, clips or skin adhesives. The patient will notice the immediate results after the implant placement and will continue to enjoy the results for more than a decade.
