After doing some online research, many women considering breast implants have the notion that they’ll need to replace their implants after 10 years. This is due in large part to a 2011 report by the Food and Drug Administration on the safety of silicone implants that noted one out of five patients needed a replacement or revision after 10 years.
A quick look at those numbers, however, should put your mind at ease rather than causing alarm. While one in five women may need another procedure, that means four in five, or 80%, still are enjoying the benefits of their implants 10 years after receiving them.
