WORTH IT RATING 1,226 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.

Hi , I have been following patients explant stories and have found them all to be inspiring for me, as I am 47 this August and have had silicone implants in now for 12 years & have experienced since having them in years of pain , joint pain, headaches, neck/shoulders and nerve pain etc and have...

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

I sit here with sadness that I, like others have poisoned my own body with breast implant toxins. I am 41 & had a routine mammogram 1 week ago and discovered that my right silicone implant had ruptured. I have had my implants (under muscle)for about 4 years and have had no trauma that could... READ MORE

So I have had my implants for 13 years now. They are 350cc saline over the muscle. I have been thinking about removing them for a month or so I just really want my natural body and to have smaller boobs.. I am so over these heavy rocks lol. I have surgery scheduled for October 7th and can't wait... READ MORE

It's the beginning to the end of the nightmare that started April 9,2007. coincidentally I had my implants removed exactly the same day I had them put in. The Doctor held my hands all the way to the room and it made me feel so safe and secure with what was next. I never felt this way. I lost... READ MORE

I just happened upon this site a few weeks ago and it has been one of the most eye opening experiences of my life. I got implants for my 40th Birthday nine years ago. I didn't want anything big just a little fullness. I was excited to be able to wear a tank top without a bra but to my surprise... 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

Very anxious to get my implants removed. I got them when I was 19 years old and didn't fully understand the implications of what I was doing at such a young age. After having two young daughters of my own, I desperately want them to love themselves for who God created them to be...not what the... 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

I currently have my second set of implants, the first ruptured and was left with a good result once remove see pic above, I then had implants out back in but now sadly have another rupture, I no that once removed I maybe a little more saggy than above but don't want another set of implants do...

I was tired of my implants and didn’t want to have to undergo any future surgeries, so I decided to have my implants removed and a breast lift without new implants. I wasn’t terribly concerned with what my breast size would be after the surgery and knew that there would be a substantial loss... READ MORE

I am very excited to finally be moving forward with removing these foreign objects from my body! I have been considering having them removed for over 2 years, but I became pregnant and that put all of this to a halt. My son is now 8 months old and my breast are saggy and bottoming out. I am NOT... READ MORE

Hi everyone, I know that most of you say it but I am Sooooooooo glad I found this website and have faithfully followed stories for over a year now. My story started back in 2004 and was at the height of the 'Extreme Makeover' series running on the TV and yes I thought this looked an easy way of... READ MORE

I've been lurking here for some time. I had a TT, scar revision and BA (38A/AA before 38 D after) done in 2004 by Dr. Lisa Lynn Sowder. She did a wonderful job and honestly the process was not much different than having a c-section or hysterectomy ( I've had both). It's been more than 10... READ MORE

Today marks my two weeks post surgery explant removal. This forum was super helpful & supportive, so I decided to post my pics and offer my support and experiences with implants as well. With two sets of implants since the age of 21, I finally came to terms with wanting them removed. My first... READ MORE

I did a breast augmentation in 1998 with 330cc saline implants behind the muscle. Two years later, In the summer of 2000, my left implant ruptured and began to deflate. Strangely I felt better with it though my chest was asymmetrical. But when I went back to see my surgeon and asked him to... READ MORE

I was extremely lopsided in my breasts as I developed and remember having a DD on the right and barely a B on the left. Insurance covered a Breast implant surgery in 1998 to try and match up my breasts. Over the years my natural right breast has gotten even bigger and heavier (now a FF Cup).... 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 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
