How Long Does Breast Augmentation Last?

Close up of a woman laughing with her hair falling over one side of her faceWomen interested in breast augmentation generally want to know that the results will last. Breast augmentation is many things, including an investment. Like any investment, you want to be sure that the return is well-worth it! 

When performed properly, breast augmentation results should never need to be re-done unless some issue arises that you would like to change or address. It is true that the rate of rupture may increase after the first decade, but only minutely. In the event that rupture or some other complication does occur, your breast implants can be replaced at that time. 

Dr. Fugo works to reduce the necessity for breast implant replacement by carefully planning a breast augmentation procedure that is personalized to your goals and your body. Aspects of planning that may affect longevity include choosing a size that is right for the current breast pocket, choosing an incision location, and choosing whether to place the implant below or above the chest muscle. Additionally, Dr. Fugo will provide you with detailed aftercare and recovery instructions. Following those to a T will prevent adverse events and contribute to the longevity of your breast implant results.

Sometimes a breast augmentation patient wishes to replace their breast implants to:

  • Change the size
  • Change from saline to silicone
  • Remove breast implants completely

If you feel this way, we encourage you to discuss breast implant revision with Dr. Fugo. He will provide guidance and advice, ultimately helping you find a solution so you can continue to enjoy your breast enhancement results.

Dr. Fugo uses Mentor breast implants for all breast augmentation surgeries. As an added benefit, Mentor implants are warrantied for your entire lifetime. If an implant ruptures or deflates, Mentor will replace the implant free of charge, plus the other implant if you and Dr. Fugo decide to replace both. The replacement implants will be the same style as the originals.

If you are curious about implant longevity and other aspects of breast augmentation, we hope you’ll discuss those issues with Dr. Fugo. As a plastic surgeon with many years of experience, Dr. Fugo can make sure you are armed with complete information.
