Natrelle Style 15 Silicone Implants. How Long Do They Last? (photo)

5 months ago I had breast augmentation. How long do implants typically last? Will most women need a revision eventually, or can they last a lifetime? Also, are my breasts aesthetically pleasing? (Does the pocket placement look ideal as well as overall shape) I believe my PS did a nice job creating very natural results. However, I would like a professional opinion.

There is no set time as for how long implants will last. In some women they last a lifetime, and others they need to be changed in a year. It depend upon so many variables. In general, do not expect your implants to last a lifetime, the data suggests that most patients require at least 2 procedures on average over their lifetime.
