As you decide whether breast reconstruction is right for you, one of the deciding factors may be the longevity of the results. Overall, your breast reconstruction is long-lasting. Many women continue to be happy with their original results for decades.
Both breast implants and skin flaps last a long time.
- Longevity of breast implants: Breast implants come with lifetime warranties and are generally very durable devices. Most women with implants can keep those implants for decades without problems, although some patients decide to change the size or type at some point down the road. Although they are quite durable, it's not impossible for an implant complication to arise, which would require removal and replacement.
- Autologous tissue flap results: Tissue flaps of your own skin are a very long-lasting, virtually permanent reconstructive option when they heal successfully. Our plastic surgeons have prestigious training and extensive experience in flap-based reconstruction, and our patients report high levels of satisfaction with their results.
Our team and our plastic surgeons are committed to providing guidance and helpful advice so you can decide whether breast reconstruction is right for you.
