Will Your Breast Implants Last a Lifetime?

by Ellen Mahony

Breast ImplantsBreast implants are a common and popular cosmetic procedure done to enhance the shape, size, and overall appearance of your breasts. However, with any cosmetic procedure, there are still some questions that need to be answered for someone to be comfortable with their procedure. One of the most common questions is how long breast implants last. Let’s take a closer look at how long breast implants last so you can make an informed choice about your body.

Lifetime Of Breast Implants

Breast implants will eventually degrade and need to be replaced like any other product. However, they have a substantial life span. However, each material and type of breast implant changes how they need to be cared for and how long they last.

Saline Breast Implants

Saline breast implants are one of the most common and popular forms of breast implants. Saline breast implants can last anywhere from 10 to 20 years with proper care. However, a ruptured implant would likely need to be replaced far sooner. Saline ruptures are rare but become more likely the older the implant. The saline solution will naturally be absorbed into the body, and the implant will deflate.

Silicone Gel Implants

Silicone gel implants are another very common form of breast implant that is often used instead of saline. Silicone Gel Implants also last up to 20 years with proper care. Silicone implants can also rupture but will not deflate the same way saline implants do. Silicone implant ruptures are often gone unnoticed, and thus, some people prefer saline.
