WORTH IT RATING 1,228 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 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

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

When I was young, I enjoyed my tiny breasts. I didn't have to worry about them falling out of my top and they were just ME. Then a switch was flipped at 28. I wasn't even 100 lbs and so there was very little that wasn't nipple. I'd gotten a car accident settlement and decided I'd get implants to... 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

I've been on this site everyday for months reading reviews, looking at pics and researching doctors. I've been wanting my breast implants out for several months but I'm so scared. I have had 492 cc silicone breast implants under muscle since 2008. I never thought I would be the type of woman... READ MORE

I am 56, in good physical shape, take no medication, and am physically active. My implants are both as hard as rocks (capsular scar contracture, mentioned again below). After exploring this site, I have decided that I want and need them out, using the en bloc method. And no replacement, thank... READ MORE

I want to say thank you to all those women who have bravely told their stories here, because of you I am now moving toward the goal of removing the implants in my body. Several weeks ago, not feeling well I went on my support group forum and saw a posting where a women who had breast implant... READ MORE

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

My implants have been a big secret for over 20 years - I haven't spoken about them to anyone except my husband, so this website is amazing for enabling me to talk freely about implants for the first time!! I was what I would describe myself as underdeveloped. I didn't want big boobs I just... READ MORE

Hello!! So, I did it! I had my 9 year old implants removed almost 2 weeks ago and I can't be happier!! I wanted to share with all you lovely ladies as I got inspiration and courage from all of your stories. I got implants for reasons I'm sure many of us can relate to... years of insecurity + a...

As several of the beautiful women here, I too, and didn't know it then, was needing a fixing something more on the inside than the outward appearance. I had my BA, 31 years ago, during a time when my first marriage was breasts then seemed to have been the focal point of my "need... READ MORE

I had breast augmentation a few weeks ago and I already HATE them. I should have thought harder/longer about getting them and done more research...I never would have done it. I hate having these things in me; despise, actually. I went in to see my PS and told him I wanted them out. He tried to... READ MORE

I first want to start off from the bottom of my heart a huge Thank you to all you wonderful ladies. Without this site I really don't know where I would be right now. So I'll kind of give you my history for the last 17 months. I had my BA on April 17, 2014 with the Seintra 565 hp textured over... READ MORE

I had always dreamed about having larger breasts and as I aged my body changed and I thought it would better balance my figure to have larger breasts. I had 550 cc implants and I went from a B cup to a DD. A year and a half after my breast augmentation my right implant had a leak. At that... READ MORE

That’s right… my 260-270cc implants are 34 years old! It may not be a record, but pretty ancient all the same. After breast feeding my two children in my twenties, by my early thirties I had lost breast volume and was sagging a bit. The new silicone implants simply filled up the slack, which... READ MORE

Hi everyone. Thank you so much for sharing all of your stories. They have given me strength to do what I've been wanting to do for so long. I have had over the muscle saline implants 390cc with capsular contraction. I have seen Dr. IRA Rex today for my primary consultation and immediately felt... READ MORE

Although this is going to be hard for me to put into writing (since I really don't want to believe this is my reality,) I've decided that it's my time to contribute to realself as it has been my main source of information and comfort throughout my breast implant journey. So, here it goes...I got... READ MORE

I'm 38 yrs old, have 360cc silicone implants, under the muscle with baker 4 capsular contraction and rupture on the left and level 2.5 cc on right with possible rupture. After having saline implants for 8yrs (which ruptured) I was talked into getting silicone in May of 2006. Less than a year... READ MORE
