WORTH IT RATING 1,276 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.

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

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

I always felt like I had a little girl's body I was always very small and petite I'm 5'6"and I 100 pounds ... My original breast size Was a 34 B .. Oh I would give anything to be back to my original size I really wish that I knew now what I didn't know back then ! But I was young and felt... 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

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...

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

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...

I'm scheduled to remove my under muscle silacone implants in 4weeks. Have only had imolants for 16 months and have HATED them from day one. Feel they are too big. Want to go back to being "me". Am prepared for some sagging afterward but am worried I will look horrible afterwards. Was a 34A... 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

Oy, what a mental process this has become! Let's start from the beginning... At 23, I decided I was ready to get a BA. I found a doctor that I liked and trusted and scheduled my BA. What drew me to him was that he was a pioneer and very proficient in using the TUBA incision. I had a great... READ MORE

Hi ladies! The stories and pictures on this site helped me alot so I thought I should share mine. I got 240cc under the muscle saline implants when I was 18. There is nothing wrong... no pain, no rupture, they look and feel good...I'm just ready for them to be out. At 18 I didn't think too much... READ MORE
