How Long Do Breast Implants Last?

Q: I would like a breast enlargment, but I was doing some research and found that they are not permanent. Meaning that I would have to the breast implants replaced in time. Is this true? How long do they last? Would I lose sensitivity with an implant replacement?

A: Breast implants are not permanent, but they are currently waranteed for 10 years. Typically, a breast implant replacement would be done at some point after that, but that is an individual decision.

Regarding your question on loss of sensitivity – there really isn't a loss of breast sensitivity in my experience.
