Oftentimes, women who want breast implants are curious about how long they will last and how often they will have to be replaced. You may have friends or women you know who have had their breast implants replaced at some point after their initial breast augmentation. The fact of the matter is, you may have to replace your breast implants at some point, or you may never have to have them replaced. It depends on whether you experience any problems with the implants, or if you want to modify the results of your breast augmentation.
Having said all that, it's not uncommon for a woman to exchange her breast implants. Breast implants are not lifetime medical devices, and just like other medical devices, they are susceptible to wear and to breaking. If the implant ruptures or breaks, it will have to be replaced. Some women replace their breast implants to increase the size, or to change between saline and silicone. But there is no definite point at which breast implants will have to be replaced.
