How Long Do Facial Implants Last?
Q: Dr. Eppley, Will I need to replace at some point my custom facial implants? How long do they usually last?
A: The only aesthetic facial or body implant that a limited lifespan and would need to be replaced are breast implants which is gel silicone placed into a containment bag whose integrity will be eventually compromised. All other face and body implants are made of solid silicone material that never needs to be replaced due to device failure/breakdown. It only changes physical form at 375 degrees F.
