Risk Factors associated with Gel or Saline Implant RupturesImplants do not last forever, whether they are gel-filled or saline-filled. For saline implants, the deflation rate has been quoted by manufacturers to be 1.5% per year which is accumulative.
In other words, the longer the age of the implant the higher the deflation rate. For example, the deflation rate of a 10-year old saline implant is probably 15%.
However, two factors will increase the deflation rate. Capsular contracture and underfilling the implant will lead to earlier than expected deflation rates.
For gel implants, rupture rates go up with age of the implant. In my study of 1600+ silicone gel implants which was published in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Journal in 1999, rupture rates are affected by age of the implant, capsular contracture, manufacturer of the implant and type of implant. (Lu-Jean Feng, MD, Cleveland Plastic Surgeon)
Breast Implants Last How Long?
Mentor and Natrelle, the breast implant manufacturers in the United States, each offer a 10 year warranty to replace breast implants.
So the safe answer is about 10 years. Now, that answer applies only to a statistical patient population, not an individual.
I have had patients with breast implants without problems for over 30 years! However I have also seen patients requiring replacement after only 4 years. Should a patient be unlucky and have an early implant failure, this is not a foreshadowing of things to come.
One early implant failure does not mean a second early implant failure (in MOST cases). (William A. Wallace, MD, FACS, Jacksonville Plastic Surgeon)
We know that all implants placed in the human body last between 10-15 years. Once your breast implants are between 8-10 years you need to be followed more closely by your plastic surgeon with ultrasound and regular mammograms annually.
Certainly, for saline implants it is quite apparent when they deflate or rupture as they go flat on the breasts. However, for silicone gel, they need to be monitored especially after 10 years. If they have ruptured they do need to be replaced. (Rod J. Rohrich, MD, Dallas Plastic Surgeon)
Lifespan of breast implants
The question of the longevity of implants is a subject of some controversy. If the implants are not bothering you or demonstrating leaks or capsular contractors, there is no reason to replace them. Studies performed with the old, silicone gel implants suggested that, at the 10 year point, more than half of them were suffering leaks. This is a general guideline and every case is a thing unto itself. A rash would not, in and of itself, indicate a problem with the implant but, in any case, should be worked up by a dermatologist. (Robert L. Kraft, MD, New York Plastic Surgeon)
Duration of breast implant durability?
This is a common question and does not have an exact answer. Personally, if you have saline implants and you are happy I see no reason to worry at this time. If you have silicone implants you may want to discuss exchange for a new set of implants with your board certified plastic surgeon.
There are several options for you to discuss in a lengthy discussion with your surgeon. Make sure he/she is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. All the best, Talmage J. Raine MD FACS (Talmage J. Raine, MD, FACS, Champaign Plastic Surgeon)
No expiration date on implants in Rhode Island
One of the blogs on my website is entitled ‘The ten biggest lies in plastic surgery.’ The myth that implants need to be changed every ten years I believe is number one on that list. I have no idea who is originally responsible for that rumor, but in is not true. Although any implant can rupture at any time, most modern day breast implants should last 15-20 years before a deflation occurs. That is why both Allergan and Mentor offer such terrific warranties on their products.
Both offer you lifetime replacement for a rupture and will reimburse you more than what you paid for your original implants (implant cost only) if you have a deflation within the first ten years after surgery. Hard to find a warranty for anything that compares to breast implant warranties. (James McMahan, MD, Columbus Plastic Surgeon)
Rule of thumb for implant size
Rule of thumb: try it before you buy it. Go to a board-certified plastic surgeon. Bring a sports bra. Try on implants at the office. The plastic surgeon will help you pick sizes that will fit your frame.
Have an idea of the look you are trying to achieve, not a cup size. (Jack Gelman, MD, Frankfort Plastic Surgeon)
Choose a breast implant size you are comfortable with
There are a number of choices to make when considering a breast augmentation in Rhode Island. By far, the most important is implant size. Most women have an idea of bra or cup size that they would like to fit in after surgery. Some want to look like their friend so they ask for the same size implant, not taking into account differences in the initial size of the breast.
The most important issue is that you are happy with the way you look. Do not prioritize the bra size. It is best to ignore your friends’ input at this point.
We have you try implant sizers in a bra to give you an idea of how you will look after surgery. While that is not perfect, it does give you a reasonable idea of how you will look after the breast augmentation.
Most women choose implants that are too large, which is why it is easy to tell which women have had breast augmentations. If you don’t want to look like you have had a breast augmentation, choose a more conservative size implant. A lot of advertising and many before and after photos show larger breasts for a number of reasons.
Choose a size that you are comfortable with and that fit your height and weight. (Ralph R. Garramone, MD, Fort Myers Plastic Surgeon)
Breast augmentation sizes are a personal choice
Rhode Island Breast implant size in augmentation can be quite a challenge for many patients. There are some patients who have done a good bit of homework ahead of time and have a good understanding about implant choices available and what they feel they are looking for, and there are some that don’t.
I recommend that you start to think about what is right for you before the actual consultation. It is best at this point not to focus on the actual implant. You can begin to search on the web as there hundreds of available examples of breast augmentation in all forms.
Keep in mind that you are looking at another individuals choice. The web often contains very full augmentations as they “show” well, yet this may not be right for you. If you feel like a B cup inside, stick with your instincts and insights. Print pictures of what you like, from the web, magazines, catalogs, etc. and bring them along when you schedule your appointment. The size and projection of the implant can be determined by your surgeon at the time of your procedure, but you together with the surgeon must decide how you will look.
It really does not matter what size the implant is so long and it looks and feels how you would like it to, how you have envisioned your result, what you feel inside. A careful consultation with pictures, and trial bra, will help you and your surgeon “get it right”. If you clearly don’t know, as some of my patients may confess, I spend plenty of time with them to get to know them and how they live in order to get the best result possible. Take your time, explore your inner self, and you will have a look as unique as you are, a look for life. Best of luck. (Peter E. Johnson, MD, Chicago Plastic Surgeon)
