I had breast augmentation with saline implants about 15 years ago. How do I know when the implants need to be replaced? Lately I’ve been “feeling” my left implant much more and my breast is somewhat sore. Is this a sign that it should be replaced? If so is it better to replace my implants with silicone?
Most frequently we are replacing breast implants with silicone implants these days as the implants of today are far superior to the so called implants of the yester year. At 15 years, the saline implants may be perfectly normal. However, if the patient is starting to feel or having a change of that implant, they need to come for an evaluation.
