Breast Implant Removal

Write a review

WORTH IT RATING 1,278 reviews over 24 months
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 have been reading this forum for well over a month and all of you have helped me incredibly. I joined only a few days ago and have had great support so thank you ladies :) If I can help even 1 person to be brave enough to cope, then I will be happy. I am 65. Have had two kids prior to first... READ MORE

If you are considering explanting, pls get numerous opinions. There's a few ps who prey on desperate women and who will try and scare you into a quick drastic procedure. Do your research! Don't rush your consults. Beware of the 1 website that will try and scare you into the most drastic explant... READ MORE

1 yr ago I got 370cc cohesive implants under the muscle.Now have grade 3 capsular contracture in one.My ps wants to do a revision but I'm not keen on the 50/50 odds that it may return-and frankly, I miss who I was.I'm need advise on this and any amazing surgeons that you'd recommend in Toronto...

I wanted to begin my blog journey, as a way to show sisterhood to all women out there. My upcoming first entry will be about me and how I ended up with breast implants. I will then follow with the ordeal of years of me wanting them out, and then I will tell you about my appointment today with... READ MORE

I had 450 cc saline under the muscle for 16 years and had them replaced with silicone 525cc over the muscle 4 years ago. I have had severe fatigue and joint pain. I was also diagnosed with Hashimoto thyroiditis about 10 yrs ago. I was referred to rheumatologist 2 years ago and have tested... 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

Hello ladies! Here comes my story! After breastfeeding my 2 wonderful children my breast looked sorry... It didn't bother me as much as it did my husband at this time. I don't know how I let him talk me into this but I ended up getting fake boobs. I agreed on 375cc but somehow during the... READ MORE

I always was self conscious of my breast size, and wanted fuller size to add curves to my body. I am very athletic and did not have much fat on me. I am petite, 5'4 and 105lbs. Pre BA I was a small 32 B, and I wish I kept it that way. I was young and felt the pressure to look beautiful and... READ MORE

Goal is to have back my health and cutie little boobies that are ALL mine! Looking forward to my surgery. Today was emotional as I committed to payment... But I know I'm doing what's best for me. I have had 2 revision and always requested a smaller size. To my dismay it has never been... READ MORE

Thank you to all you strong women out there for sharing your journey's on this site. I have been reading many of your stories for the past few weeks on here. You have inspired and helped me to summons up the courage to consider that life after implants may not be soo bad. Although I am very... READ MORE

I had a "mommy makeover" in May 2014: TT with muscle repair, lipo on the hips, BA and BL (lollipop lift). I knew 100% I wanted the tummy tuck; I'd had 4 kids, including a set of twins, and my stomach skin and muscles were shot. I had a nearly 4-finger separation in my abdominal wall and a... READ MORE

I had implants put in 8 years ago. I'm embarrassed to say but it was really an impulse move. I was going in for partial tummy tuck, and before I knew it, I signed up for that plus the implants. I was a 34D to start with, great size for my body, but they were starting to sag a bit. I... READ MORE

Hi all, feels strange that I am actually writing a review rather than just reading them as I have done for so long now. My story is familiar to many. Very small and insecure growing up, being a little asymmetrical just heightened my misery. I dwelt on my breasts day in and day out. In my... READ MORE

I got implants about 11 years ago. I have been sick for 10. I just recently came across hundreds of stories of women with the same "mysterious" illness as I have from their (supposedly safe) saline implants. I'm getting mine out! I am 34 and I have smooth saline implants 375 cc, breastfed 2... READ MORE

My gp saiid i need to get them removed so i went to see the surgeon who put them ( he is still around). He told me that i would... READ MORE

Hi everyone, This forum has helped me a lot when I was going through the decision of removing my implants. I kept putting it off and telling myself I will remove them when I turn 40. Well, 40 is just right around the corner and when I read your inspirational post and stories I decided to do it.... READ MORE

After being sick for many years following implanting saline implants for 10 years, I decided to explant. While some of my symptoms are subsiding, making the implant removal worth it, my cosmetic outcome is horrendous. Especially since I paid for a lift after I was told I would be deformed... READ MORE
