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.

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

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 visited Gary on 11th August after seeing another surgeon and wanting a second opinion on a removal then reaugementation. His staff are wonderful made me feel so welcome from the moment I arrived and chatted with me whilst we awaited Gary to finish in surgery. Gary checked me over and... 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

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

Hi Ladies, I have been following explant patients on this site for about a month and the letters and pictures have been so helpful. Now I want to share my own story as I near my surgery date. I am 49 years old, and nearly 25 years ago, after two babies, I went to a plastic surgeon for breast... READ MORE

I hope to find an experienced doctor to remove my implants under local. My left implant is now deflated. I feel so weird having a small breast and one large one! I can feel the deflated implant poking my skin. It's uncomfortable at times. I just need support! Has anyone had their's out under... READ MORE

Hi all! I am writing to say I have booked a date for my implant removal, no lift. I have 370cc silicone under the muscle, and although I have only had them since December 2014, I know they are not for me. My PS is great, and has been very understanding the entire journey. We obviously did not... READ MORE

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 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

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

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
