Right breast leak after 10.5 years.

I'm getting my 10 and a half-year-old saline implants replaced in October. Why can't it be an 11 year warranty?? My right implant has a leak and is about 1/4-1/2 deflated. It's been a week and a half since the leak started. Not sure why there's a leak, just age I guess. I workout 6 days a week; I run marathons, teach a boot camp class and do CrossFit. I was sick and didn't workout for 9 days and the leak happened on day 9. I did my bootcamp class the next day and the muscle hurt a little and I ran the next day, the first half-a-mile felt weird but I don't even notice it now.The reason I'm waiting until October, 6 1/2 weeks away, is because I have 2 marathons and two half marathons coming up. October 5th is my last marathon and I'm hoping for an October 7th surgery. I was 25 years-old, I went from an A cup to a C cup. 450cc in each breast, aureola incision, under the muscle.  I've had two kids since, 6 and 4, breast fed both about 6 month and 4 months each, I didn't make enough milk to continue longer. I've been happy with my implants. The rippling kind of bugged a little since the kids. I'm thinking of silicone this time around and I want to be bigger. I had my first consultation last week. I really like Dr Peterson of St George, UT and look forward to new boobs!

Your sx date will be a special day bc it's my child's b-day and also your sx date, Whoohoo! I also have two beautiful children the exact same age. I will be getting a Silicone BA in 2016;) when i initially went for a in office consultation with two diff. Doctors I told them I wanted something feel natural both said go with silicone. Plus also told me that silicone doesn't leak or tear as easily as saline. Now I understand why silicone is at least $1000 more expensive. Lol I'm 5'2 currently weight 152 but will have a BBL in April 2015 so I will want to determine how many ccs I will get but am aiming for 550cs;) how many ccs are you getting this time? Well I'm excited for you can't wait to see after pics;) take care chick xoxo
