Is there a certain amount of time that I have to wait before having my breast implants replaced?

Sometimes patients may be slightly unhappy with the results of implant surgery soon after the operation. This is because it takes time for the breast tissue to settle and the bruising and swelling to go down. It can take up to six months before you will be able to see the final results. Therefore, it is recommended that you wait at least six months after having implant surgery before making decisions about having a breast implant replacement procedure for cosmetic reasons.

It is also recommended that you get your implants checked by a specialist at least every 8-10 years, in case your implants do need replacing.
