- Need for revision surgery
How long will the results of my breast augmentation last?
Although there is no expiration date on breast implants, there is a chance that they will need to be changed at some time in the future. Saline or silicone implants have been shown to last as long as ten to 20 years. About 20 percent of women who receive implants will need to have them removed or replaced in eight to ten years. The choice to have breast augmentation involves regular examinations to ensure all is well.
How is today’s technology in breast augmentation different than in the past?
In the early days of breast augmentation, the philosophy was bigger is always better. This approach often produced results which were less than natural in appearance or led to complications. Newer surgical techniques have been developed that produce far superior results, such as submuscular placement for a smoother look and less likelihood of complications such as rippling or capsular contracture.
Dr. Gabriel’s goal is to achieve beautiful results that enhance your unique body shape. The latest generation of breast implants are safer than ever before, offered in a wide array of shapes, sizes, and levels of projection, filled with silicone gel that retains its shape for greater patient safety if an implant rupture occurs. Structured saline implants are an advancement that many women appreciate as an option.
