Dr. Laurie Casas is quoted in an article posted by Elle Magazine regarding Breast Enhancement, titled “Terms of Endowment”.Overall Elle Magazine highlights the fact that Breast Implants, contrary to some popular belief, do not last forever!

Contracture can happen at any time, “starting from day one to year 40,” says Laurie A. Casas, MD, an associate professor of surgery at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago. “I had a lady, 78 years old. Her implants were put in 1969. Thirty-eight years later, all of a sudden one was soft and one was a rock. It bothered her when she hugged her grandchildren.”

These waves aren’t “a product defect,” Casas says. “If you put an implant on a desk and let it sit there, the edges of the product form little hills and valleys. It’s just more palpable when the tissue is very thin.”
