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, 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

In Feb 2006 (35 years old), I had a circumareolar breast lift with breast augmentation under the muscle. Prior to breast augmentation, I was wearing a 34 C/D bra and had moderate sagging (Grade 2 Ptsosis). I had heard about women who were disappointed after breast augmentation because their...

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

5 years ago I made the stupidest decision of my life:to get breast implants I was 34a and felt totally inadequate and when I was 30 and majorly depressed I went to Transform and got completely brainwashed. I was a 34a and I had 380cc implants put in. Ive never liked them and I don't know why... 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 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

I have 450cc silicone implants under the muscle. I had lost some weight and wanted to fill out my breasts more, and told the surgeon I wanted to go from a B cup to a D cup. I had used rice sizers and was thinking maybe 300cc, but when I went in for my consult the assistant told me that she had... READ MORE

History: Maybe 4-5 years ago I developed capsular contracture on my right boob. It was just had a little hard parts at first but through time it was really hard and tight and hurt. I couldn't sleep on that side due to the pain. I'm going through other treatment which was more important... READ MORE

Hello ladies, I really need your help here. I want my implants removed... I just don't like them or want implants in my body anymore. Not having any issues, no CC I have been to several consultations with board certified plastic surgeons and all but one said it would be a straightforward 45... READ MORE

I'm so happy I stumbled upon this site! I've been wanting my implants out for a couple of years now and you ladies have given my a lot of inspiration and courage to do it! I got my 320cc under-the-muscle implants 13 years ago, along with a breast lift at the same time. I had breast fed 3... READ MORE

I think that it is important that I share my story because it is so “uncommon” for young women to go through with breast implant removal and it is rarely documented (from my research). I believe that many young women absolutely love their breast implants and then there are some like me that... READ MORE

I had 250cc saline implants put in shortly after having my first child. I've been happy with them, I've breast fed two children with no issues, they even looked more natural afterwards. I don't think I've suffered any ill effects from the whole thing, although I am always tired...but I kind of... READ MORE

I had Dow implants in 1989. 20+ years and 3 kids later, the left implant had formed into an encapsulated cyst. I needed removal & Dr Maclin said nipples should be "pepperonies not pancakes". My breasts are uneven & the nipples don't match. I was wary of putting implants back in, now I don't have... 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

This blog is the reason I am doing this tomorrow! Thankful for all who have gone before me and shared their experiences. Same story as many: skinny girl with flat chest, silicone implants (300cc) over the muscle in 12/88 (I was 18!), replaced in 12/00 to go down to a 225cc, stayed with silicone... READ MORE

I got sub muscular cohesive gel implants Sep. 2009 in NYC. Dr. Jennifer Walden was my surgeon. I had debated for about 7 years because I breast fed 3 children and my boobs deflated. Fast-forward 6 years and I totally regret doing it. In fact, I regretted getting them right afterwards. Sure, they... READ MORE

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

Had implants done when I was 20 years old and had low self-esteem. Back then the super models of the 90's were curvy and I was stick straight and super flat. Now at age 33 having impants bothers me a lot. I can hardly look in the mirror anymore because I hate them so much. They feel unnatural,... READ MORE

I got implants about 11 years ago. I have been sick for 10. I just recently came across hundreds of stories of women with the same "mysterious" illness as I have from their (supposedly safe) saline implants. I'm getting mine out! I am 34 and I have smooth saline implants 375 cc, breastfed 2... READ MORE

I was always a very small person, late bloomer and always wished that I had more on my chest than I was given (32A/B) I had 2 children in my late 20's, early 30's and enjoyed the increase in bust size during pregnancy (34D) only to have them go down to 34AA after finishing nursing my second...
