With hundreds of thousands of women having had silicone breast implants inserted over the last 50 years, removal of old and sometimes leaking silicone breast implants has become a common procedure. Many surgeons recommend that silicone breast implants be replaced every 10 years.
Some women choose to have their implants removed and replaced earlier if they have developed signs of silicone leakage, if the breasts have become hard due to fibrous capsular contracture or simply because they are not happy with their size – either too big or too small. Some women dislike the look of their breasts as silicone implants may be situated too high and look fake!
