Patients should be aware before undergoing breast augmentation that their breast implants will eventually need to be removed or replaced at one point in the future. Breast implants typically last ten to twenty years and need to be revised to continue being safe in use and aesthetically pleasing. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bram Kaufman provides silicone breast augmentation to patients in Cleveland, Beachwood, Pepper Pike, Lyndhurst, OH, and surrounding locations.
Choosing Your Implants
During your consultation with your surgeon, you will be able to go over your expectations and goals for your breast augmentation. It can be helpful to bring some photos of your ideal breasts to illustrate what you hope to accomplish. Your surgeon will then suggest types and sizes of implants that could assist you in achieving your goal.
This surgery is an outpatient procedure that is completed while the patient is under general anesthesia. During your breast augmentation, your surgeon will make concealed incisions either around the nipples, close to the armpits or beneath the fold of your breasts. After inserting the implants, the incisions are stitched up and the operation is completed.
Why Do I Have to Eventually Remove or Replace My Implants?
It is most probable that you will need to have a revisionary breast augmentation or have your implants removed at least once. If your implant ruptures or a capsular contracture occurs, you should have the implants immediately taken out or replaced. Additionally, if the surface of the implants starts to show signs of rippling, you may want to have them revised. If none of these issues arise and your implants remain durable, the breasts will likely start to sag due to age and you may need to get them re-augmented with implants to maintain the desired aesthetic.
