Why Breast Implants Can Last For A Long Time
In a word: fiction. There is no set time that you need to get breast augmentation surgery again after getting your implants. Some patients believe that you will have to get your breasts adjusted every ten years or even every five years. While there are no absolute guarantees when it comes to how long your implants will last, if you choose the right surgeon, you can increase the lifespan of your breast implants so that you don’t need to keep getting surgeries. For instance, if you choose experienced Phoenix plastic surgeon, Dr. Meger, you can ensure the longevity of your breast implants for many years. Because he has done countless breast augmentations, you can be confident that your implants will not rupture or sag for a long time. It’s important to consider where you’re getting your plastic surgery done to make sure that the procedure goes smoothly and that you’re getting your money’s worth. Dr. Meger prioritizes quality and comfort with his Phoenix patients. If you choose a plastic surgeon that is less experienced and qualified it’s likely that you may need replacement surgeries later on in life.
Does This Mean I Will Never Have to Get Replacements?
If you are in Phoenix and considering breast augmentation, you won’t have to panic about scheduling surgeries every few years. However, you should, for the safety and longevity of your implants, schedule regular appointments to check up on your implants and make sure everything is as it should be. Although replacements are not set every ten years, because they are implants, they will still have to be redone eventually. They can last for up to 10-20 years, depending on the implants themselves. If you notice sagging or something wrong with your implants after a couple of years, you should check in with your plastic surgeon. With Dr. Meger, he will gladly set you up with frequent appointments so that you can always make sure everything is perfectly fine with your new, curvy attributes! After all, we just want our Phoenix patients to have healthy, beautiful looking curves.
