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 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 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've had saline implants for 20 years. Over the muscle, first set in 1995, second set in 2005. With the second augmentation I had a mastopexy and an abdominoplasty. I began with A cup breasts that had big ol areolas, man. Like crazy eyes starting at you from the bathroom mirror through shower... 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 got my implants at the age of 18..Young and self absorbed I loved them. Ten years later, I stated feeling achiness in my both my boobs. It was comparable to how your chest feels as your boobs grow from being pregnant. I knew it was time to get them out. I really prayed about what I should... 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

After 6 stressful weeks I'm finally getting my new implants out. On July 9th I had full body liposculpture with fat transfer to rear and a breast lift with a 175cc implant in each breast in Bogota Colombia. Since coming back to the states my right breast has had nothing but problems. Literally... 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 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'm a 25 year old mother on one. At 22 I had silicone implants put it above be muscle. Went from a B cup to a D cup. I am still breastfeeding my 20 month old and after pregnancy and nursing, my implants look nothing like they did pre pregnancy. We plan to have more kids and to breastfeed all of... 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 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 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

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

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

First of all, I would like to thank all the brave women on realself for sharing their stories. It helped me a lot. So it's my turn to share mine. So here is my story : 8 years ago, after my second child birth I was left with small, deflated and slightly tuberous breast (huge areolas,... READ MORE

I've been reading reviews on this site for a while and it had been so helpful. I am having my implants removed in 4 days and am so excited! I've been thinking of getting them out for a while. No problems as such, I was just aware that they are getting to their 'sell by date' and im no longer... READ MORE

I got implants 2008 and hated them immediately. It was super painful. I had a 32 a/b before implants and they looked fine. I was going through some hormonal issues and decided too quickly to get them pit in my body. It took awhile for me to actually get use to them. I figured I paid enough for... 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
