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 want to say thank you to all the brave ladies on this site whose posts have helped me on my journey! Your honesty and vulnerability has given me the courage to move forward with explanting. I am 30 years old and received breast augmentation surgery in 2008 when I was 22 years old... READ MORE

Hi gals! I'm so glad I found this site! I had my BA done 4/1/2010 (yes, April Fools Day - joke was on me, I guess, ha!). I originally thought I wanted bigger breasts, but only really started feeling this way about a year prior, had some shame set in and blamed it on my boobs. But I was never... 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 lucky enough to be able to share a photo pre-implants in 2004, after breastfeeding three babies. I had 240 silicon gel implants and all went well until 2013 when I found lumps under my right armpit, this was then seen in an MRI as silicon in a couple of the lymph nodes. It's not clear how...

My doctor is suggesting removing the capsule from my left breast as it is thick and twisted. He says if he does not my breasts may look different sizes. Has anyone had this? Any comments? I got my implants 10 years ago. I was 22 and in a different place in my life. I went from a 34 A to a 34... READ MORE

Originally, I never intended to get implants. I always had full breast even in high school. In my mid-twenties I was sporting a full D cup. My breast have never defined me. As a skinny girl, they always bought unwanted attention. Eventually, I grew comfortable in my skin, and was proud to... READ MORE

Hello there. I found this website a couple weeks ago and I want to say ''Thank You'' all for sharing your stories. I never thought I would find a nice community online talking about explant! So much information on implant… but so few on explant! I started thinking about an explant in the last... READ MORE

I received sub muscular silicone 421 cc implants under the muscle a little over two weeks ago. I am a person that cares about my health. I am a single mother to a 6 year old wonderful little girl. I eat organic even though it leaves me practically broke, I belong to a local farm co-op for... READ MORE

I am 24 years old and I have had my breast implants for 7 years. I was 18 years old and thought I would love having bigger breasts. I was young and I didn't take into consideration that this was a serious surgery and a serious decision. So I just did it without a second thought. I was a 34B... READ MORE

I never wanted implants, only a lift! I was talked into implants instead of a lift. I was already a D with no desire to be bigger and ended up with 550's and now a 36E...no fun. I've developed capsulary contracture on my right side. Very painful!! I can't wait to get them out!!! I believe that... READ MORE

About 18 years ago, I was in an unhealthy relationship and state of mind. I grew up with low self-esteem due to family dynamics, and was with someone who objectified every woman he saw. I was very insecure. I made the decision to get implants, bringing me from a 36B-C to a 36DD. While I had a... READ MORE

Almost a decade with overfilled saline implants, about 400cc on my small frame. Took it's toll on my back, and totally regretted them. Successfully breastfed with them, which only added to the weight. My breasts were large and saggy with this weird roundness. Could not stand it anymore! Better... READ MORE

I had 230 cc smooth round Sientra implants placed under the muscle with areola incision six months ago by another doctor. The 230s were actually larger than I wanted, but the staff of that surgeon had really pressured me to go bigger. Needless to say, from the beginning I felt that they were... READ MORE

Almost positive my left implant is slowly leaking. Having a really hard time finding a dr to deflate the other one in office and/or preform an explant under local. I have called 5 or 6 different offices today and am lost at where to go. Feeling very frustrated. Anyone use an OKC dr for removal?... READ MORE

Ladies, you have brought me so much hope with your stories. I cannot express enough how grateful I am to each and everyone of you courages women. I am sure my story mirrors yours one way or another. In 2004, a month before I turned 30 yrs old, I decided to give myself a gift, a change and to... READ MORE

I'm scheduled in July for explanation of my subglandular 12 year old silicone implants. I have had implants since 1989 when large fake round breasts were in. I started with silicone submuscular, developed cc in a few months. I saw the doc again. At the time it was recommended to externally... READ MORE

My Explant went great, I am two weeks post op and feel so much better!! All the... READ MORE
