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 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

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

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

I'm a 54-year-old female scheduled for explant and lift on August 26th. So happy this site is here to read all of your stories. My biggest problem is this: I have no issues with my implants. They are soft and sit in the right spot (just too large). I decided I wanted them out because I feel they... 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 am having my implants removed on August 5. I have been thinking about this for the past 3 or so years. I started to feel my left breast harden when I was nursing my first baby. I now have 2 kids and I nursed them each for a year. I'm terrified about what I will look like when this is done,... READ MORE

I had my first set of implants in 2005. As soon as I saw them right after surgery, I knew they didn't look right. Sure enough, they were uneven. One sat higher than the other. I was so upset. At my post op visit, the doctor said that they would settle down and they would be even. Well long story... READ MORE

I had a breast augmentation 2 years ago after my now ex-boyfriend would make me feel bad about my small breasts. I am someone who has had other elective cosmetic surgery that I definitely DO NOT regret because it was exactly what I wanted, but I allowed a man to pressure me to get a boob job... 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 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

I was young and in my early 20's and my now husband and I were young and working in the states, he was a boob man and always noticed big busted woman and my 32a's just didn't make me feel good so I took the plunge and got saline under the muscle implants with Dr Levens in Fl, as I was quite thin...

A little background. When I was a teenager and young woman I had small breasts, guessing 34 A. I loved the freedom of not wearing a bra whenever it was not obvious....like when I had on a t-shirt and overalls. That was stylish in the late '60s! After giving birth and breastfeeding my two kids,... 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
