WORTH IT RATING 1,239 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.

After two children, my 34b boobies looked sad. Living in Dallas at the time (where everything is BIG) decided to get implants. I told my Dr "I want big" and big he did. Almost 600cc's! For my 5'4" frame, 130lb at the time, were WAY TOO BIG for my body. I have been so self conscious of these... 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

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

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

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

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

Good day, like many other stories begin, "I found this site looking for support" Yes, me too. I have held in any emotion about my breast surgery from the late 90's to my shame, pain and misery I have carried up to this day. When I did the breast augmentation, I told one friend. Mostly because... READ MORE

I had a "mommy makeover" in May 2014: TT with muscle repair, lipo on the hips, BA and BL (lollipop lift). I knew 100% I wanted the tummy tuck; I'd had 4 kids, including a set of twins, and my stomach skin and muscles were shot. I had a nearly 4-finger separation in my abdominal wall and a... READ MORE

It has been just over four years since I had my breasts done and I have been thinking about taking them out for almost as long (304 cc, under the muscle, silicone, areola incision). The stories and photos shared on this site have helped me to finally make the decision to book the implant removal... 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 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

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

The last three years I have been battling with my acceptance of my breast implants. I simply did not want to admit to myself that I have made a really bad decision and wasted thousands of dollars. So as months turned into years, next thing I knew a baby later and nearing my 30s I was still in... 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

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

So I have made the decision to explant. I am 32 years old and have had my implants since 2007. I am getting them removed on October 27 and up until today have felt very confident in my decision. I have been under the impression I have between 325 and 350cc as that is all that was discussed With... 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

My implants have been a big secret for over 20 years - I haven't spoken about them to anyone except my husband, so this website is amazing for enabling me to talk freely about implants for the first time!! I was what I would describe myself as underdeveloped. I didn't want big boobs I just... READ MORE
