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.

Yes, I made a big mistake. I had 330 cc saline breast implants put in. It was a rushed decision, I was feeling insecure and I decided to do it. I thought it would be life changing, I thought I would be happy. However, I have never been more depressed or angry with myself. First, I'm 5'2 and 105... 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

It’s been a journey of self-love to get me to this place, and even so, as I sit here writing this, knowing intrinsically it is the right thing to do, I am plagued by doubt and confusion and guilt. Guilt at having devoted the last 3 years of my life running the BA gamut; guilt at all the money... READ MORE

I had my first implants 20 years ago. I was a tiny 34AA, I was very underweight at 34 and due to being constantly put down by my then partner, I went to my doctor, who recommended implants. Looking back I think I was depressed due to the abusive relationship I was in. I had had 2 kids and my... READ MORE

I hope this actually posts, twice previously I've tried and it's just disapeared into the ether..... My implants are 12 years old, silicone unders, put in through the armpit. I was always an A cup which I hated, and got the surgery after I stopped breastfeeding my son (I was 31). I developed a... READ MORE

Having dizziness, memory loss, fatigue, body aches all over, heart palpitations, weight gain, unable to lose weight, foggy thinking..a long list...doctors can't figure out what's wrong with me so I'm explanting enbloc and thinking about doing a lift and tummy tuck. I'm not sure if I should do a... READ MORE

Hi everyone, Reading your reviews and experiences is utterly comforting right now as I have my surgery booked in less than 6 weeks. Right now there is a strange feeling of excitement (to finally feel 'real' again) and fear... of disfigurement, complications, regrets and so on. It seems like... READ MORE

Discovered both implants ruptured. I had deep concerns about silicone leakage into my lymph nodes. My doctor was very respectful and supported my desire to have no replacements. I am relieved to have them out and now just have to see what I'm left with - if there is too much sagging, my doctor... READ MORE

I've been reading many explant stories on this website. They have given me so much hope that I could look normal again without these ugly balls stucked on my chest. I'm 44 years old, and as long I remember, I never liked my breasts. As a teenager, I was a bit overweight and my breast became huge... 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

Hello everyone! I have always been helped so much by reading reviews on here! So I had my breasts enlarged when I was 21 in Thailand at Tokai Clinic - he done a fantastic job - I had Silicone Allergan 280ccs placed over muscle. Previous to boob job I was a 34A - After Boob job 34D. Everyone who... READ MORE

I first got silicone breast implants in 1980. I was 23 years old, & very thin, with an A cup, which only plumped up a little once a month, before my periods. I went to a surgeon, & arranged for McGhan silicone implants to bring me up to a B cup. To save money (infamous last words), I chose a... READ MORE

Hi Everyone, I'll make my story short; I got married at 24 and had a beautiful daughter with my ex-husband at 25. He always wanted me to look more beautiful and more attractive. I was young, immature and in love so he talked me into getting breast implants. Two to 3 years later he left me... READ MORE

So, I've been reading posts and decided it's time for the consult. I am hoping to go natural and I know I will need a lift. It was 1984 when I first augmented under breast in San Diego. The surgeon decided I needed large 450cc. I was shocked at the size of the bandages afterwards, considering I... 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

Pros of breast implants - I'm not flat chested in a sports bra - They look nice, full and pretty without clothes, I ONLY LIKE THE SIDE VIEW THOUGH. Cons: -Constantly aware of them - I can no longer give hugs without feeling the implants between us, so I side hug now :/ - Shortness of breath... READ MORE

I am 29 years old. I had 375 CC saline implants over the muscle in 2010. I always had really nice boobs. When I was thin they could be as small as a 34 A and when I was heavier around a 34C. They were super perky. I think I only wore a bra about 1/2 the time. I could run with just a basic sport... READ MORE

So excited for my explant next Friday, this site has really helped me confirm my decision was absolutely the right one. Had these for 21yrs and was never crazy about them from the get go!! I am also post menopausal so I feel they grew....a lot!! I'm a young 50yr old so I can't wait to be able to... READ MORE

First I must say, thank you to all the wonderful strong women on this site! You have all helped me without even knowing it! So here I am with my story. I have 375 mentor smooth saline, and they have been inside for 12+ years. I explant on 5/20!! Yay! I am sick. I have been on a slew of... READ MORE

Hello - I decided back in 2002 to have breast implants w/a lift due to a new marriage to a much younger man and feeling very insecure about my boobs. You see my husband is a BOOB man! As you can see in my first photos I was what I call "snoopy ears" due to breast feeding. I had one of the best... READ MORE
