Breast implants are not meant to be permanent devices.
Interesting that you asked this. I just returned from a conference where international experts were polled on this subject and most are of the thinking that the implants may need to be changed at some point in time but not as scheduled every 10 years.
I concur with that. I see my patients yearly after their augmentation for both breast disease screening and also to check on their implants. If I do not see any problems my advice is to continue enjoying them!
