Woman Still Has '60s Breast Implants

Wednesday, 01 Feb 2012 10:01 AM

Dear Dr. Hibberd: I am 75 years old and I had breast implants in the 1960s when they first started being used. I never did get them removed. Now that I’m getting old, I’m wondering whether I should get them out. What do you think?

If they are not causing any problems, you might want to leave them. If you have had them for such a long time and your skin has lost elasticity because of your age, removing them will make your breast appear saggy. Discuss this with your partner, and your surgeon.
