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.

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

Ok where to begin.......sigh. Well I got my first set of implants right after the birth of my first son back in 06. I always wanted breast implants ever since I can remember. I have always had issues with asymmetry and felt they were always a little smaller than I wanted . I was about a large B... READ MORE

I got my implants when I was 19, and I have 350cc silicone. I was able to get silicone because my surgeon deemed me to have a congenital deformity, 'tuberous breasts'. I had a fairly mild case but definitely was what I was dealing with. I did a LOT of research over the course of about three... 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

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

Although this is going to be hard for me to put into writing (since I really don't want to believe this is my reality,) I've decided that it's my time to contribute to realself as it has been my main source of information and comfort throughout my breast implant journey. So, here it goes...I got... READ MORE

I have been thinking about this for months now. My breast are six years old and they are huge! I'm A 32DD... But I can fit an E. I am tired of feeling inappropriate in everything I wear. I'm tired of hiding these big heavy jugs on my chest. I know that there are so many different ways my boobs... READ MORE

I did a breast augmentation in 1998 with 330cc saline implants behind the muscle. Two years later, In the summer of 2000, my left implant ruptured and began to deflate. Strangely I felt better with it though my chest was asymmetrical. But when I went back to see my surgeon and asked him to... READ MORE

I always had small asymmetrical 34AA breasts.. After my very abusive marriage ended I decided to needed to 'fix' something to make me more worthy so had a BA I had 220 which suited my small frame. It was the best thing for me at the time giving an immense confidence boost and with now 34b... 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

Background: Textured silicone implants placed in 1991 -- Right side contracted within first year but was not disfiguring and Dr. said it was fine. I was originally 34C -- Post surgery 34D but now 32E!! No problems at all in these 24 years until I started to have strange symptoms -- abdominal... 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

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

So, I've been reading posts and decided it's time for the consult. I am hoping to go natural and I know I will need a lift. It was 1984 when I first augmented under breast in San Diego. The surgeon decided I needed large 450cc. I was shocked at the size of the bandages afterwards, considering I... 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

Hello - I decided back in 2002 to have breast implants w/a lift due to a new marriage to a much younger man and feeling very insecure about my boobs. You see my husband is a BOOB man! As you can see in my first photos I was what I call "snoopy ears" due to breast feeding. I had one of the best... READ MORE

I've been on this site everyday for months reading reviews, looking at pics and researching doctors. I've been wanting my breast implants out for several months but I'm so scared. I have had 492 cc silicone breast implants under muscle since 2008. I never thought I would be the type of woman... READ MORE

I had implants put in 4 to 5 years ago, under the muscle, through the armpit, silicon. I was a 32B before implants and breast were not full on top. I wanted to only get enough implant that would make me fuller on top, but I brought my older sister with huge boobs with me who had implants in... READ MORE
