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.

First of all, I have to say sorry to everyone who is reading this review for my very bad english... but I'll do my best in writing down my experience. About me: I'm 22 years old and I had my breast augmentation last 29th October 2013 (only 8 weeks ago), 325cc under the muscle, axillary incision... READ MORE

After 6 stressful weeks I'm finally getting my new implants out. On July 9th I had full body liposculpture with fat transfer to rear and a breast lift with a 175cc implant in each breast in Bogota Colombia. Since coming back to the states my right breast has had nothing but problems. Literally... READ MORE

Ok so i'll try to keep it brief...i was an A cup for 36 years however i was a 38 A which is kind of a weird size, right? hard size to find, seems most bras are more like a 38D!? anyway, i was always unhappy with my small breasts, even after having 3 children in my early 20's they really didn't...

I just discovered this site last week. I'm just starting the process of researching and finding a surgeon for explant surgery. I have saline implants placed under the muscle. I don't have a copy of my surgical notes yet so have no details. After a divorce in 2000 I wanted to feel attractive... READ MORE

After having my child, my full boob lost it's shap and plumpness and became large pancakes. One divorce later, i decided to treat myself and put the plumpness back. I had the implants some 12 years ago now and it was the best decision at the time. I have to say I had some very peaceful years... 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

I had 500cc implants 7 yrs ago, same as others, just looking for a confidence boost and they did the trick more or less. Within the first year I noticed they ached still but my Ps nurse said they'll probably take a while to settle down. Since then, they have hurt when I run, when I do chest or... READ MORE

At 19 years old I got implants. I didn't need them in fact I had big boobs for my frame but I was stupid and wanted barbie fake boobs. So I got 420 saline implants under the muscle. Fast forward I have 3 children and nursed each one almost two years a piece. So I was left with huge water... READ MORE

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

After my last son was born I wanted a breast lift. Because of cost and healing time the doctor suggested implants. I got them under the muscle one is 225cc the other is 250cc. Now after the years I have decided that i want them gone. I work out and run and they are only in the way. I live... READ MORE

Have 19 year old saline under muscle. Pain after a fall 3 years ago so now time to remove. I'm ready except scared of recovery and potential problems. PS said will not remove capsules unless he determines necessity during procedure. No drains planned unless there is eccessive bleeding. Seems... READ MORE

Was 34AA prior to BA carried out almost 20 years ago. I was told I would be a large B, small C cup which was just fine with me. They ended up being 34D or 34DD depending on the bra. I was disappointed and have always felt they were too large. I tried to have an explant 5 years ago but the PS at... READ MORE

I got a breast augmentation on May 16 2015. Before the implants, I was a size 30C. I had a decent amount of breast tissue and never really considered myself to have "small" boobs...although people would sometimes tell me they were small I always viewed them as the medium/small side. I had always... READ MORE

I am scheduled for implant removal and lift on May 8th! (I am 38, 2 teenage kids!) I got my silicone implants over the muscle about six years ago. Looking back I wonder whatever possessed me to put these foreign objects inside my body in the first place?! Low self esteem, divorce..... Who knows.... READ MORE

I have used this forum to educate myself and help me make a decision to have my implants removed. My saline implants are hard although after being examined are not incapsulated. (I think that's the right term, sorry) My plastic surgeon is going to perform an in office procedure on Wednesday.... READ MORE

Hi... So I keep reading reviews and I have done for months now. And it really helped me to see how many ladies are in the same situation as me ACTUALLY QUITE SHOCKING! So my story is 8 yrs ago I was 30 and I decided to have cohesive silicone implants under the muscle. I had a handful and ended... READ MORE

I've had my implants for 7 years and after the initial excitement was over, I realized they were really uncomfortable and I'm really uncomfortable with them. I feel more self-conscious now than before and I especially hate when my husband touches them. They're just useless, uncomfortable and... 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

Went back to Dr. Blinski for saline breast removal consultation. (He performed smart lipo on me approx 6 years ago with great results) . Dr. Blinski is a breath of fresh air! He is not your typical "robot" plastic surgeon that will tell you whatever you want to hear and try to scam you out... 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
