WORTH IT RATING 1,275 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 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 had implants put in 8 years ago. I'm embarrassed to say but it was really an impulse move. I was going in for partial tummy tuck, and before I knew it, I signed up for that plus the implants. I was a 34D to start with, great size for my body, but they were starting to sag a bit. I... 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

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

I would like to preface with a great big thank you for all your stories and words of strength and encouragement. I am scheduled for an explant in 3 days under a local, no sedation. My capsule is also quite thin so both PS' that I consulted with, discouraged en bloc. Both of them stated that in... 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

Beginning my Breast Implant Removal Journey. I was very young when I made the decision to get them. At this point in my life I want to feel "naturally beautiful" and love myself for who I am. I got my implant in 2003 and I have never had any problems with them. I was very happy with how they... 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

My surgery is tomorrow and I'm hoping this is the right decision for my health. I want to be implant free because I'm a mom and want to be a good role model for my daughter. I want to show her how to be comfortable with what you are given. I'm also athletic and these globes cramp my style!;-)... READ MORE
