Longevity of butt implants
Butt implants are not like breast implants. Butt implants are actually solid pieces of silicone plastic. They cannot leak or rupture. If placed properly, your body will tolerate the implant well and you will not have problems with excess scarring or displacement of the implants. If done appropriately, your implants should not need to be replaced

The butt implants are a semi-solid silicone material. This make them very durable so that they can absorb the punishment that are butt takes on a daily basis from sitting and the occasional falls. Because the implant is a semi-solid material the implant does not leak. The implants are extremely durable.
The butt implants have become a great option for patients that are too thin for a Brazilian Butt Lift or want more augmentation than is possible with fat transfer alone. The durability of the implants typically gives patients a result that will last for years to come.

Butt implants longevity
Butt implants, unlike fat injection do not disappear. Fat injection in large quantity, does not survive and completly disappear or almost completely disappear after 1 year. The silicone implants are non bio-degradeable and since they are soft solid , they do ot leak or break. Theoretically the can degrade over time, however in over 10 years of performing butt implants surgery , I did not witness it. So, the only reason to replace them will be if they break or deteriorate. Most importantly, consult with a board certified plastic surgeon that you trust, who performs lots of butt implants surgery and you like his or hers results.
Best of luck,
How will the implants last
We know that silicone is a stable material over many years. The implants are solid and therefore cannot rupture, so unless a major trauma was to displace them or an infection would develop there, they are expected to remain for the duration of the patient's life.
