Yes. All breast implants will eventually fail and need to be removed & replaced. With a saline-filled implant, a deflation will be noted immediately because the patient will loose volume on the effected breast. The released saline will simply be excreted from the body. A gel implant deflation, however, will be detected by either mammogram or MRI as the gel filler stays in place. Typically there is no noticeable change in appearance. Implants are warrantied by the manufacturer to help with the cost of the remove/replace procedure however this warranty only covers the cost of the implants. It does not include cost of surgeon fee, anesthesia, or facility fee.
