Double walled saline & silicone Not leaking in MRI but Dr says Replace

I have Behcets and have had a lot of pain where my bra band sits. I had an MRI done. The results say I have radial folds with out evidence of silicone outside the envelope, with trace fluids surrounding the implants. Since my implants are double walled, isn't it possible the fluid just saline? And if so doesn't that indicate the are still sound? I've had the implants for 29 years. They are soft and look and behave like a natural breasts. I have not seen any other saline & silicone implant questions. Please address this question. Thank you.

Thank you for your question - what to do with older style implants is a frequent topic of discussion. The best course of action is to start with an in-person consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon in your area. There is a school of thought to leave well enough alone if there is not evidence of rupture or symptoms of capsular contracture. Another common theme is to remove older implants and replace them with newer generation cohesive gel implants. An experienced aesthetic breast surgeon can partner with you to develop a treatment plan that best addresses your current needs and future goals with your implants. Best wishes on achieving your desired outcome.
