Removal of breast implants needed in all women?

Not necessarily . With the current state of the art, implants may fail over your lifetime but that also means they may not. If ruptured or if other complications develop, you will certainly want to remove/replace the implants when problems occur. However , in the absence of complications there is no need to remove them. In the future, fat transfer may offer a longer term solution.
No. No, breast implant removal is not necessary unless the breast implants are causing a specific problem, have leaked, and/or the patient chooses to have them removed. On the other hand, patients who are planning on undergoing initial breast augmentation surgery should be aware that additional surgery related to their breast implants ( for a variety of reasons) may be necessary in their lifetimes.
No. Breast implants only "need" to be removed if there is something wrong with the integrity of the implant such as a leak in a silicone implant.There is the option at that time of having it replaced or simply removed without replacement. Saline implants don't really "need" to be removed even if they leak, although the cosmetic result could be poor. Infected implants of any type need to be removed.
No. Breast implants only need to be removed if there is a problem: significant capsular contracture, leakage, deflation, or rarely, infection. No problem, no removal necessary.
Probably. Depending on how young you are when you put them in and how long you live it is best to plan that some time in the future the implants you have now will either need to be removed or replaced. As imperfect as these devices are most women with failing implants choose to replace them if that is any indication of their popularity.

Is it true removing breast implants is very simple, yet finding a surgeon who is expierences in removals are more difficult then ones to put them in?

Yes. Removal of recently placed implants, ie., less than 10 yrs old is fairly routine. Older implants which are ruptured and calcified can be an true surgical ordeal. Bleeding and hematoma are always a concern so choose someone experienced individual. Read more...
Ruptured or not? Yes intact breast implant removal is simple but dealing with the collapsed tissue post removal is not and requires thorough discussion re options and management. If a silicone gel implant has ruptured then removal of that is much more difficult but a fully trained plastic surgeon should be able to deal with these issues for you. Read more...
Ruptured? Silicone? Removing saline intact implants can be very simple and easily completed under local anesthesia. However removing ruptured silicone implants with extra capsular involvement of the muscles and breast tissue can be quite complex and require extensive surgery under general anesthesia. Using a preoperative MRI may be quite useful in planning surgery. The specifics will be determined at time of consult. Read more...
Not Necessarily. Any well experienced plastic surgeon should be able to remove breast implants safely. I would not say that removal is any more difficult than initial breast augmentation surgery. However, preoperative communication is very important; patients should understand the potential downsides of removal of breast implants. Sometimes, breast lifting may be necessary. Best wishes.

Simple. The operation to remove breast implants is simple, but it is surgery and comes with all the usual surgical risks. The challenge with breast implant removal is the post operative results. Unlike breast reduction, breast implant removal does not tighten the skin, if anything support is removed with the implant. A breast lift can often lead to improved results, esp. W/ large implants & small breasts. Read more...

Could a person with breast implants get a laparoscope gallbladder removal?

For sure. There may be obscure concerns about bacteremia and seeding of the implants which can be mi i used by appropriate antibiotic coverage but this should be completely acceptable and i see no contraindication. The only other concern is destroying the pedicle of a right sided tram flap or not being aware of the lack of muscle and increased risk for hernia in a patient with a reconstruction (not imlant).

What happens to breast implants as a woman ages?

Aging Breast Implant. Breast implants also age. That is why at some point in the future a woman should plan that the breast implants will have to be exchanged. They can rupture requiring replacement or need to be exchanged and a lift added as the breasts sag. Most women can go at least 10 years before needing a replacement. However, some women can go 20-30 years without any issues. Read more...
Eventually rupture. Breast implants are not "life long" devices. Eventually they rupture and need replacement. The breast around them also ages and changes may prompt patients to consider additional surgery over time. The breast and the implant within it can have differing changes over time. Some change little and others change more profoundly with weight loss and gain and pregnancy and/or breastfeeding. Read more...
They wear out. Like everything else, breast implants aren't permanent devices and eventually they wear out. Read more...
You age around them. Implants are not permanent, so you will eventually need to replace them. However, as you age, your skin will change and your native breast volume will change relative to your implant, which tends to stay more constant. The implant will change if you have a capsular contracture or deflation, but your tissues will change simply by aging. Read more...
Hopefully nothing. The breast tissue can thin, the breast can sag... Basically all the things that would happen normally. Some women are fortunate enough to have minimal long-term changes. This is more likely if you and your surgeon choose an implant that is appropriate for your breast. Read more...
