Are you interested in undergoing a breast augmentation, but not sure how long your results will last for? Check out how long you can expect your breast augmentation to last for, including how you can maintain your results:
Breast Augmentation Results: How Long Do They Last?
The longevity of breast augmentation results can vary from patient to patient; however, most patients can expect their results to last anywhere from eight to 10 years. Most implants come with a two-to-five-year warranty, which can ensure you feel confident with your results.
Breast implants are designed to last longer than ever, meaning if you’re like most patients, you won’t have to worry about replacing your implants for a decade or so. However, that doesn’t mean your implants are infallible. Capsular contracture and injury may require you to get your implants replaced earlier than anticipated, so be sure to schedule regular mammograms with your doctor to check in on your implants.
How Can I Maintain My Results?
If you want to maintain the results of your breast augmentation surgery for as long as possible, we recommend the following steps:
- Follow your plastic surgeon’s advice carefully, especially during the first several weeks of your recovery. A successful recovery period is essential for enjoying your breast augmentation results for years to come, so follow your surgeon’s plan very closely.
- Provide your breasts with plenty of support, especially during the first few months after surgery. While you’ll wear a compression bra during the first few weeks of your surgery, you can transition to a sports bra for the next couple months of your recovery.
- As previously mentioned, schedule regular mammograms so you can ensure your breast implants are still intact.
- Avoid gaining or losing a significant amount of weight, as this could interfere with how your breasts look.
