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 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 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

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

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 had 3 breast augmentations in my 20s. In 2005, I decided to remove my last BA & it was horrible. My Dr. Also did a lift which I think has something to do with the pain, due to where the lift was, I now have servere scar tissue. It feels like my skin is constantly pulling. As you can see my...

Surgery date is scheduled and I'm quite relieved however, worried sick about post-op pain and detoxing issues. I have mentor smooth saline implants that were put under the muscle in 2012! I have had so many medical problems that started several months post BA. It was only recently that I started... READ MORE

So, I've been reading posts and decided it's time for the consult. I am hoping to go natural and I know I will need a lift. It was 1984 when I first augmented under breast in San Diego. The surgeon decided I needed large 450cc. I was shocked at the size of the bandages afterwards, considering I... 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

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

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...

Gained my breast implants in 2005. And I loved them for a long time. A couple of years ago I began to experience some health problems. Irritated bowel syndrome, joint pains, serious night sweats, dizziness, fatigue, and so on. I love to run, but more and more I felt after a run, like I was... READ MORE

The decision has been made. I am going to have my implants removed after 42 years. They have served me well but it is time to say so long to my unnatural, hard, playboy boobs. Am I ready for this change? I sure hope so because the appointment has been made for October 28. Maybe I can dress... READ MORE

Breast Aug history: Pre augmentation - 34 barely-B 1st augmentation 2004 - 36DD (turned into an E after a year) under the crease incision 2nd augmentation 2011 - 34D areolar incision So with my 1st augmentation in 2004, I was basically at the mercy of the doctor and my ex. I wanted a C cup... READ MORE

Decided to have my breast implants removed after having implants since I was about 20yrs old. I had saline over the muscle but then at 25 had them replaced with silicone under the muscle (way better, more natural appearance and look). Developed an auto immune disease not long after getting my... 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

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

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

After 11 years I was ready to get rid of my implants. They didn't look bad but they were always in the way. Good thing I had them removed; left breast had encapsulation and calcification. I'm 5 days post and still in pain. They look scary, but I'm optimistic. Required pain meds just 2 days. Very... READ MORE

So after reading so many reviews on this website, which have helped me in my journey to explant, I thought it was only fair to share my story too. I got my implants, 450cc hp mentor over the muscle in October 2014, so just over a year ago. Ever since I can remember, I was always self concious... READ MORE

I, like many of you, have sought and found solace in this forum. I had a lift and saline implants placed in 2006. Before that, I had a little girl in 2003 and breastfed for 10 months. I produced a lot of milk and was often engorged because I am a nurse, and worked nights, and did not have... READ MORE
