Breast implant removal is performed when a woman decides she no longer wants her implants or when complications such as capsular contracture or rupture may occur. If a woman doesn’t want to replace her implants, removal can performed along with a breast lift to address skin and tissue that might have been stretched from the implants.

I had breast augmentation a few weeks ago and I already HATE them. I should have thought harder/longer about getting them and done more research...I never would have done it. I hate having these things in me; despise, actually. I went in to see my PS and told him I wanted them out. He tried to... READ MORE

I'm a 54-year-old female scheduled for explant and lift on August 26th. So happy this site is here to read all of your stories. My biggest problem is this: I have no issues with my implants. They are soft and sit in the right spot (just too large). I decided I wanted them out because I feel they... READ MORE

I've been reading many explant stories on this website. They have given me so much hope that I could look normal again without these ugly balls stucked on my chest. I'm 44 years old, and as long I remember, I never liked my breasts. As a teenager, I was a bit overweight and my breast became huge... READ MORE

I have been doing a lot of research for a good ex-plantation doctor, I found one and after my MRI my doctor (GP) recommended me to another one who reconstructs for cancer patients, so I will be seeing him first ( no cancer). I will have to have the lymph node removed at the same time....not... READ MORE

I don't usually post things online, but I've found this site SO helpful that I feel like I need to pay it forward for those considering implant removal. My ex plant is scheduled for next week and I'm terrified! I've had implant since I was 18 (with 2 revisions) and breastfed 4 kids, and am so... READ MORE

I don't know where to start except that I wish I had taken explantation more seriously sooner! I have been on here for about 4 years and I feel like there are so many beautiful journeys and that I should finally start my own and share my experience. I've made up my mind, and I must get them...

Pros of breast implants - I'm not flat chested in a sports bra - They look nice, full and pretty without clothes, I ONLY LIKE THE SIDE VIEW THOUGH. Cons: -Constantly aware of them - I can no longer give hugs without feeling the implants between us, so I side hug now :/ - Shortness of breath... READ MORE

I always felt like I had a little girl's body I was always very small and petite I'm 5'6"and I 100 pounds ... My original breast size Was a 34 B .. Oh I would give anything to be back to my original size I really wish that I knew now what I didn't know back then ! But I was young and felt... READ MORE

9 years ago tummy tuck with breast augmentation, Mentor smooth medium profile 350 cc overfilled to 425 cc under muscle. I was never informed of the possibility of overfills by previous doctor I chose Dr. S.M.. I was a droopy full B pre BA and was happy and comfortable with my cup size but not... READ MORE

Hi ladies. I have been following your journeys. I am an in awe of the courage I see. It has given me the strength to share my journey as well. I am 60 yrs old and a mother of 9 children ( 6 adopted) and 11 grandchildren. While going through a divorce after 28 yrs of marriage I felt less than a... READ MORE

Thank you to all the brave ladies on RS who have shared their stores; I am now inspired to give back by sharing mine. My journey has been a long and painful one. Actually, a bit of a nightmare… Unlike most women, I never wanted large breasts. But, at 18, I ended up with large saggy breasts; I... READ MORE

After 15 years, I am ready to have itty bitty boobies again! I was small-average pre-kids (34B), but after nursing 3 kids I went to a 34 A, nearly AA. Nothing. Nada. So I wanted boobs again, like I had had when I was lactating (up to 34C+). I went with an out-of-town doctor who did... READ MORE

I don't even know where to start, lol! My first BA was 25 years ago. They were silicone under the muscle. Then the big scare in the news about how dangerous and bad silicone implants were. I panicked of course and so after only having my implants a year, I had them replaced by the same surgeon... READ MORE

Hi everyone. Thank you so much for sharing all of your stories. They have given me strength to do what I've been wanting to do for so long. I have had over the muscle saline implants 390cc with capsular contraction. I have seen Dr. IRA Rex today for my primary consultation and immediately felt... READ MORE

25 Years ago, 360 silicone under the muscle; originally small A cup, after was full C which took years to settle in. Both mammory folds/pockets needed to be lowered to accommodate implant. Dr. wasn't successful on one side at lowering pocket so one side sat much higher and doctor wouldn't... READ MORE

Like many of you, I made the decision to have breast implants after a divorce. Looking back on my life now I can't believe I thought I wasn't feminine without them. At the time I was working out 2 hours a day....at 33 years old I was in the best shape of my life. I was 5'7" 120 lbs and a size A... READ MORE

I have a better idea what to expect all the way through from beginning to end .. Each and everyone of you that have shared your story has... READ MORE

When I was young, I enjoyed my tiny breasts. I didn't have to worry about them falling out of my top and they were just ME. Then a switch was flipped at 28. I wasn't even 100 lbs and so there was very little that wasn't nipple. I'd gotten a car accident settlement and decided I'd get implants to... READ MORE

I always felt uncomfortable in my body. As an adolescent I thought I was fat. 5.6, 110 lb I was a slender, and lovely teenager. In my late twenties I started to feel bad about my slenderness, and began comparing myself to barbie-like shapes. Looking for approval from outside, I started to... READ MORE
