How long will my new breasts last?
Your breast implants will need to be replaced during the course of your life. Implants are not lifetime devices and are subject to wear and tear like any other implant device (e.g. tooth fillings, heart valves, hip joints).* *Cohen BE, Biggs TM, Cronin ED, Collins DR Jr. Assessment and longevity of the silicone gel breast implant.

What is BIA-ALCL and what signs and symptoms of BIA-ALCL should you be looking for?
BIA-ALCL is a very rare type of blood cancer and there is a small but increased risk of it developing in women who have received textured surface breast implants. You should regularly check for redness, itching, or any swelling or lumps (with or without pain) around the implant. While it remains unlikely that you have developed BIA-ALCL, these symptoms should always be discussed with your surgeon if you have any worries or concerns. It is important that you look after your breast health regardless of having breast implants.
