How Long Do Breast Implants Last?

Posted: March 24, 2021

Transcript: Breast implants are considered a medical device and are therefore not intended to last forever. Each manufacturer, however, stands behind their device, and they’re guaranteed for the life of the implant. If a woman decides to change her mind and she has existing implants in place and wants to go larger or smaller, this however is not considered a manufacturer’s defect and there will be some added costs associated with switching out her implants. If, however, an implant fails, such as a saline deflation, these are one of the manufacturer’s defects that the implant manufacturer will provide a new implant for free to that patient. If you have any specific questions about implant safety or the costs, please don’t hesitate to call Zinsser Plastic Surgery at 804-474-9805 or visit our website at
