WORTH IT RATING 1,279 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.

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

I have slight discomfort in my right breast which has 280cc implant the left has 260cc ...although the ultrasound shows no problems I want these implants out.....

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

The list includes: muscle aches/weakness, fatigue, hair loss, loss of libido, non-production of female hormones, headaches, anxiety attacks, heart palpitations, night sweats, hot skin, recurrent yeast infections, puffy...

Hi all, this site helped me tremendously before my surgery so that there were very few freak outs. So time to pay it forward. What also helped was that I couldn't wait to get rid of my silicone implants. I had 250 cc implanted 10 years ago into my aa cup breasts. From the very beginning I felt... READ MORE

I have had implants for 9 years and had them done following breastfeeding my two children. I was a very small and empty 32B and always wanted bigger boobs. I had 250 and 275cc textured silicone implants over the muscle and was happy with them for about 3 years. After this time I felt self... READ MORE

Thought I'd pay this forward as others before me who have posted here, especially with photos, have been so helpful as to what I might expect. I got my implants, under muscle, saline with silicon shell, in 1996. I was single at the time and thought I'd do this "just for me". I was an A cup at... READ MORE

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

My two previous breast augmentation left me with continual issues. Capsular contracture, double bubble, bottoming out, major assymetry. Dr. Riolo Gabe me a thorough consult, told me realistically what she could do and boy did she change my whole entire life for the BETTER. She is an incredible... READ MORE

Hi everyone, I recently decided to get my implants taken out. I got implants in 2011. When I got my implants, it was for no other reason than that I was young and wanted bigger breasts. I was blessed with natural beautiful breasts. When I went in for my consult my PS said " Are you sure you... READ MORE

My story started back in 2004 and was at the height of the 'Extreme Makeover' series running on the TV and yes I thought this looked an easy way of... READ MORE

I have been thinking about this for months now. My breast are six years old and they are huge! I'm A 32DD... But I can fit an E. I am tired of feeling inappropriate in everything I wear. I'm tired of hiding these big heavy jugs on my chest. I know that there are so many different ways my boobs... READ MORE

Ok where to begin.......sigh. Well I got my first set of implants right after the birth of my first son back in 06. I always wanted breast implants ever since I can remember. I have always had issues with asymmetry and felt they were always a little smaller than I wanted . I was about a large B... READ MORE

I am beyond excited about my consult for explant in a couple of weeks. I have had these 450+ cc boobs since my early 20s. They never looked right on me. I have been hiding them and covering them up for years. Clothes don't fit properly. The implants hurt when I sleep. They are under the muscle.... READ MORE
