The average lifespan of a breast implant according to most manufacturers is 10 years which is why many surgeons will recommend removing or replacing your implants around this time frame. This estimate however can vary between individuals so we do recommend that you attend regular check-up appointments with your surgeon who will be able to assess you and your implants.
Just because you have had your implants for 10 years does not always mean that they need removing or exchanging and in most cases you will be fine to leave them in. Your surgeon may suggest that you book in for an MRI scan to check the condition of your implants.
When you attend a consultation with one of our expert breast surgeons, they will fully explain the life span of your implant and what to expect for the future. It is important that you feel well informed before having a surgical procedure and here at The Private Clinic you will find that our experience and medical expertise will make your breast enlargement journey a reassuring one.
