Do Butt Implants Ever Need Replacing?

Published on February 7, 2017

This is a great question as the recommendations for implants can be confusing at times. The confusion often stems from the old recommendation that breast implants needed to be changed every 10 years, that is no longer true. In my practice if patients love their breasts and implants I don’t change them just because they reach a certain age.

However, if patients are very young it also doesn’t mean that the implant will last 80 years. Occasionally patients will need the implant revised or exchanged. It is common for patients to have the implants for many years before ever needing to do any type of exchange or revision.

Patient tend to be extremely happy with the butt implants. It is a great option for patients that don’t have enough fat or want more projection then is possible with fat transfer alone. Some patients also have a combination of fat transfer and butt implants to achieve the results that they desire.

Please consult with your board certified plastic surgeon that performs a high volume of butt augmentation procedures and specifically butt implants.
