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.

Going for 1st PS consult tomorrow on my 60th b-day for explant of above muscle silicone implants done in '86, never had replacements. Started having pain this year in right breast & back, very severe at times. I was 36 small B cup pre-implant & now with almost 50 lb weight gain over the years up... READ MORE

I received sub muscular silicone 421 cc implants under the muscle a little over two weeks ago. I am a person that cares about my health. I am a single mother to a 6 year old wonderful little girl. I eat organic even though it leaves me practically broke, I belong to a local farm co-op for... READ MORE

I had my BA at 40 and after a divorce. Typical, I know. I never wanted huge boobs. I just wanted symmetry. My left was a C but my right was barely a B. My PS (at that time) said to achieve symmetry he would need to go bigger than the full C that I wanted. However, they never were symmetrical but... 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

It's a long story and not unlike many I've read here. I got my first implants around age 30. Silicone over the muscle. They were perfect... except for repeated encapsulation. I had the capsules broken up a couple times externally. Eventually I learned to just live with it until 2002 when I... READ MORE

Hi everyone, I know that most of you say it but I am Sooooooooo glad I found this website and have faithfully followed stories for over a year now. My story started back in 2004 and was at the height of the 'Extreme Makeover' series running on the TV and yes I thought this looked an easy way of... 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 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

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

Hi all! I am 41 yo and have had 280cc saline under muscle implants for 18 years. I'm super nervous to write a review but all of your pictures and stories have given me so much hope. I've truly loved my implants for 17 years. No one can tell they are fake and people are shocked when I tell them.... 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...

I got my implants 10 years ago, saline under the muscle. I was a 34C, and not unhappy with the size, but i had no volume after breastfeeding for 2 years. They were empty and heavy. It was thought by myself and the surgeon at the time that filling up the skin would be best and give me the volume... 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

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 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

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

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 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

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
