Lifespan of breast implants

How long do breast implants last?

Average service life

The average lifespan of currently implanted breast prostheses and implants is 10 to 15 years. Your surgeon should carry out regular check-ups every year. We recommend an MRI every 3 years from the 10th post-operative year onwards.

The factors

Patient tolerance

Every patient reacts differently to the insertion of breast implants. Some women may develop shells that wear away their implants prematurely, while others may have implants that remain intact for over 20 years.

Implant quality

The lifespan of implants depends above all on their quality. Thanks to new safety standards and advances in engineering, today's implants are much more resistant, which means they last longer.
