Some of the potential complications that may arise would be deflation, capsular contracture, bottoming out, or just size change. If you are happy with the size of your breast implants and are having no problems, you don't need to do anything. With silicone gel breast implants, MRI studies may be necessary to rule out leakage, and provide information regarding the potential date for removal. I hope this helps.
