In years past, surgeons recommended replacing breast implants after about 10 years, but this timeline is no longer all that relevant. There is not a set expiration date for breast implants, but they are not lifetime devices. If you’ve had breast augmentation, you should expect to replace them at some point.

There are several reasons why you may decide to replace your breast implants, including:

  • Breast implant complication

Juvederm is effective for treating:

  • Nasolabial folds
  • Marionette lines
  • Folds around the cheeks...

A thigh lift is often performed as part of a more comprehensive lower body lift, which tightens sagging skin and fat in the thighs, buttocks and...

Because Dr. John A. Grossman and Dr. Philippe A. Capraro view your facelift as a work of art, they want to leave you with a facelift customized for your unique characteristics with minimal scarring.

Any surgical procedure will leave scars, but a skilled plastic surgeon will make sure your scars are nearly unnoticeable after your facelift.

The potential for visibility of your scars also depends on the type of procedure you elect. Because a full facelift is a more extensive procedure that refreshes your entire face, it will naturally produce more scarring than...
