Wood Burning Fireplace Renovation

Hi All!

I want to update my fireplace (new wood mantle, stone on wall above, and mount TV)

My house was built in 1991, I have an original prefab wood burning fireplace insert with large ugly wood mantle.
I've been reading online that these prefab fireplace units need to be completely replaced every 20 years or so.

Curious if anyone has any insight if I really need to replace the entire prefab insert before changing the mantle and install stone.
If so, what would be the cost of replacing the prefabricated fireplace insert ?

I don't want to invest thousands in making it look good, only to have to tear it out in the near future...

Thanks everyone!!
