보형물초음파

If I have breast augmentation, do I have to change the implants every 10 years?

When an implant is placed in the body, it is inevitable that you will become concerned. There are even rumors that implants need to be replaced every 10 years, so if you want to be free from such worries, it is recommended to check the condition of the implants through regular ultrasound examinations.

At U&U, breast surgeons will use ultra-precision ultrasound equipment to reassure you. If you have concerns after surgery at another hospital, you can receive an ultrasound examination of your implants at U&U, and we provide objective judgments and opinions about your current condition rather than deciding whether the surgery was good or bad.

Implan Check- up
by U&U

유앤유 보형물 특화검진
Since breast augmentation is a surgery that involves implants, you should pay attention to your breast health and take care of it consistently, rather than just having it once. That is why it is important to choose a hospital where you can receive lifelong care and treatment.
U&U conducts implant examinations through collaboration with plastic surgery surgeons and breast surgeons. Implant examination after breast augmentation is essential for maintaining healthy breasts because it allows you to check the condition of the currently inserted implant and its surroundings.
  • Whether the implant has ruptured
  • Whether the implant is rotated or reversed
  • Insertion plane and pectoral muscle cutting location
  • Presence of capsule thickness and capsular contracture
  • Types of Implants
  • Presence and size of hematoma and seroma
In particular, if you have had surgery at another hospital and want to undergo a reoperation at U&U, we always provide breast examination with implants specialized for breast augmentation, rather than a general breast examination.
