Silicone implants. cost and guarantee
Hi. Thank you for your question. Usually implant manufactures have a guarantee for implant ruptures and they are committed to give you new ones. But unfortunately they don`t pay for the fees for the surgeon or the hospital.In your case i would recommend to talk to a certified plastic surgeon and go through options. Whether you just want or need to change the implants or if you prefer to do a lift and change of implants. The second option would definitely give you a younger look.
Warranty for Rupture
Warranties typically extend for 10 years and the exact amount depends on the benefits at the time of your augmentation. I have seen warranties for 1200.00, 2400.00 and more recently 3500.00. The warranty provides a specified amount of money, not to cover your surgery at any cost. Your surgeon can get the exact information at the time of your consultation or even ahead of time if you call in advance of your appointment. After 10 years the only remaining warranty benefit is that the company provides a free replacement implant if you choose to have them replaced.
