WORTH IT RATING 1,226 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'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 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

Thought I'd pay this forward as others before me who have posted here, especially with photos, have been so helpful as to what I might expect. I got my implants, under muscle, saline with silicon shell, in 1996. I was single at the time and thought I'd do this "just for me". I was an A cup at... READ MORE

Ok, so here's my story. Everyone in my family, except me, had large breasts and they all sort of teased me about it. Looking back, I should have been plenty happy with my body, but I guess my family didn't foster that kind of awareness. So fast forward 35 years and my mom and I generally had... READ MORE

My surgery is tomorrow and I'm hoping this is the right decision for my health. I want to be implant free because I'm a mom and want to be a good role model for my daughter. I want to show her how to be comfortable with what you are given. I'm also athletic and these globes cramp my style!;-)... 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

This will be a long one, so pull up your chair! This site has been incredibly helpful to me during my journey to explanation. I got my first set of silicone implants in 1991 at the age of 29. I had always wanted an augmentation as I remained a stubborn 34A with a bony chest until I became... READ MORE

Hi all! I've been seriously thinking about explant for a couple of years now, and finally have the funds to do it. My implants are 330cc, saline, under the muscle. Prior to getting them I was a 34B and will be just fine going back to my smaller self. Now I'm a 34D/DD depending on bra. For... READ MORE

Hello ladies, I really need your help here. I want my implants removed... I just don't like them or want implants in my body anymore. Not having any issues, no CC I have been to several consultations with board certified plastic surgeons and all but one said it would be a straightforward 45... READ MORE

I got my implants in 1997 and went from a small B to a C. I breastfed two kids, and had been a small C before breastfeeding. I had saline implants put under the muscle and after the swelling had gone down I noticed that my breasts would get distorted when ever I flexed my chest muscles. Due to... READ MORE

After my last son was born I wanted a breast lift. Because of cost and healing time the doctor suggested implants. I got them under the muscle one is 225cc the other is 250cc. Now after the years I have decided that i want them gone. I work out and run and they are only in the way. I live... READ MORE

Hi ladies! The stories and pictures on this site helped me alot so I thought I should share mine. I got 240cc under the muscle saline implants when I was 18. There is nothing wrong... no pain, no rupture, they look and feel good...I'm just ready for them to be out. At 18 I didn't think too much... READ MORE

Was 34AA prior to BA carried out almost 20 years ago. I was told I would be a large B, small C cup which was just fine with me. They ended up being 34D or 34DD depending on the bra. I was disappointed and have always felt they were too large. I tried to have an explant 5 years ago but the PS at... READ MORE

2 years ago I made the decision to get breast implants and I have been unhappy ever since. I also got an areolar reduction because my areola were on the big side and I have always been self concious about them. Well, the implants are too big for my body, they don't look good in anything and they... READ MORE

I just discovered this site last week. I'm just starting the process of researching and finding a surgeon for explant surgery. I have saline implants placed under the muscle. I don't have a copy of my surgical notes yet so have no details. After a divorce in 2000 I wanted to feel attractive... READ MORE

I've been reading everyone's stories, and I honestly don't think I would have had my implants removed today if it weren't for other people sharing their experiences. So thank you, and I have decided to share my own. After breastfeeding two kids, I went into panic mode about my deflated size A... READ MORE

Ok so i'll try to keep it brief...i was an A cup for 36 years however i was a 38 A which is kind of a weird size, right? hard size to find, seems most bras are more like a 38D!? anyway, i was always unhappy with my small breasts, even after having 3 children in my early 20's they really didn't...
