3 Signs You Need New Breast Implants

3 Signs for New Breast Implants | Greenberg Cosmetic SurgeryGetting breast implants at virtually any stage of life can make you look and feel sexier than you’ve ever imagined. By making you stand a bit taller and helping you look a little more womanly, getting breast implants is hopefully a decision you’ll never regret. However, just as with all good things, they have to come to an end at some point. Depending on the type of implants you have, your breast implants may last anywhere from ten to twenty years. So how can you tell if you need new implants? Read on to learn more.

They Hang Lower Than Before

As you age, so do your implants— and with that aging comes—  unfortunately— a lot of sagging. If your breast implants have started to lose their shape and are hanging a little lower than you remember, then it’s time to not only get new implants but consider getting a breast lift as well. During this dual procedure, you will not only get new implants, but the excess skin will be removed so that your breasts sit where they did in your twenties.

They Are Deflated

The surest sign that you need new implants is if one or both of them have started to deflate. If you have saline implants, this will be obvious right away. If you have silicone or gummy bear implants, on the other hand, you likely won’t realize they are deflating for a few days or even up to a week. The good news is that neither silicone or saline implants are harmful to your body. The bad news is that you will be temporarily flat-chested.

They Aren’t Symmetrical

As your breast implants age, they can start to look more asymmetrical than symmetrical. Even though your implants are made of the same material, sometimes your breast muscles and tissues in your breasts can react to them differently and leave you looking a bit lopsided over time.

If you just got breast implants from Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery, you won’t have to worry about getting new ones for a decade or so. If, however, it’s been ten or more years since you last got them done, come into our office for an examination to see if you’re due for some new implants.
