Breast lift 20 years after a breast augmentation

Breast lift 20 years after a breast augmentation

I have implants for about 20 years. They have masses in them. I get a mamo once a year to monitor. I want to know if there is anything to do for that, also i would love a lift if possible.

Thank you

We suggest that you change your breast implants, since if you feel masses, it is quite possible that implants have undergone wear and tear rupture and inflammatory masses are there or there is folding or shrinkage of implants. After 20 years, you should change them anyway. You can have the breast lift along-with implants. We do Scar-less Breast Lift. You can avoid the long unaesthetic scars of breast lift which take place with conventional techniques.

It is very unsafe staying with your implants with these problems. I strongly recommend you have the implants removed, have a breast lift simultaneously, and replace the loss of size by fat injection ....which has very high success rates in conditions like yours.

Dear Nancy, your implants are pretty old. Probably you have some capsular contraction around them. If they are hard enough to make discomfort and the shape of your breasts are distorted it is better to remove or replace them. If you have enough fat in your body I prefer to augment your breasts with your own fat injections. Regards.

Hello nannerpuss, how are you? I agree with the doctors here. Breast implants can last from 2 days to even 25 years, but on average they last 10 years.
I can see that your post is a bit old so maybe you had them changed already? Have a look at this video maybe it can answer some of your possible questions:
