How Long Will Breast Implants Last?


I guess the real question is, will breast implants last forever? Depending on your doctor, he may tell you that they do, or he may tell you otherwise. I always revert back to what the manufacturers of the actual implants state.

On average, a breast implant is manufactured to last anywhere between 10 and 15 years. However, it is not uncommon for doctors to state that an implant will last forever. In reality, there isn’t an “expiration date” so to speak.

The best route to take is to continuously check on your implants. If you begin to experience discomfort or notice distortion in the figure, you should contact your doctor. Most often than not, your doctor will suggest replacing the implants, and there is always the option of removing them completely.
