WORTH IT RATING 1,239 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.

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

So, I've been reading posts and decided it's time for the consult. I am hoping to go natural and I know I will need a lift. It was 1984 when I first augmented under breast in San Diego. The surgeon decided I needed large 450cc. I was shocked at the size of the bandages afterwards, considering I... READ MORE

After two consultations with two different doctors I have chosen Dr. Feng to do my explant surgery. I had a consult with Dr. Medalie which lasted about 15 minutes. I just felt that Dr. Feng had more experience with the surgery that I need done. My first consult with Dr. Feng lasted 90 minutes... READ MORE

I should of course have listened to my deep inner self and then I would have spared myself the discomfort of two surgeries (not to mention all the money), but hey, you live and you learn. Even at 65, ha! On March 5 2013 I had silicone implants inserted, 250 cc, something like a medium C cup.... READ MORE

I got my implants at the age of 18..Young and self absorbed I loved them. Ten years later, I stated feeling achiness in my both my boobs. It was comparable to how your chest feels as your boobs grow from being pregnant. I knew it was time to get them out. I really prayed about what I should... READ MORE

I've had saline implants for 20 years. Over the muscle, first set in 1995, second set in 2005. With the second augmentation I had a mastopexy and an abdominoplasty. I began with A cup breasts that had big ol areolas, man. Like crazy eyes starting at you from the bathroom mirror through shower... READ MORE

I'm a 25 year old mother on one. At 22 I had silicone implants put it above be muscle. Went from a B cup to a D cup. I am still breastfeeding my 20 month old and after pregnancy and nursing, my implants look nothing like they did pre pregnancy. We plan to have more kids and to breastfeed all of... READ MORE

First of all, I would like to thank all the brave women on realself for sharing their stories. It helped me a lot. So it's my turn to share mine. So here is my story : 8 years ago, after my second child birth I was left with small, deflated and slightly tuberous breast (huge areolas,... READ MORE

I've been reading reviews on this site for a while and it had been so helpful. I am having my implants removed in 4 days and am so excited! I've been thinking of getting them out for a while. No problems as such, I was just aware that they are getting to their 'sell by date' and im no longer... READ MORE

I am having my implants removed on August 5. I have been thinking about this for the past 3 or so years. I started to feel my left breast harden when I was nursing my first baby. I now have 2 kids and I nursed them each for a year. I'm terrified about what I will look like when this is done,... READ MORE

I had a breast augmentation 2 years ago after my now ex-boyfriend would make me feel bad about my small breasts. I am someone who has had other elective cosmetic surgery that I definitely DO NOT regret because it was exactly what I wanted, but I allowed a man to pressure me to get a boob job... READ MORE

A little background. When I was a teenager and young woman I had small breasts, guessing 34 A. I loved the freedom of not wearing a bra whenever it was not when I had on a t-shirt and overalls. That was stylish in the late '60s! After giving birth and breastfeeding my two kids,... READ MORE

Got my implants when I was 22. I had a D size before but after getting into running my perky boobs became sagging pancakes. My surgeon Dr Newman suggested a lift too which I agreed to do. I've was very satisfied with the results but 12 years and 3 kids later I just want to be my natural, healthy... 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

I was 35 and had breastfed 3 babies - I was always an A cup but on my third pregnancy went up to an E cup. I thought I would treat myself and give myself something back.... if only I could turn the clock back and know what I know now! I am going for my consultation tomorrow 10 June, to see... READ MORE

I'm 50 yrs old. Had saline implants sub- muscular, for 14 years and my right one ruptured. My insurance doesn't cover nothing which is such a hardship for me. The total cost is $3,000. I'm concerned that leaving the ruptured one in is bad for my health. But the PS said no. I wish I never had... READ MORE

For me, the best medical professionals are those who can combine technical skills with interpersonal skills. Dr. George Sanders and the members of his medical staff are excellent examples of these. I discovered this firsthand when I visited his clinic for a consultation and a procedure that... READ MORE

I'm 50 and have had my 250cc silcon gel implants for 9 years. I'm 5'2' weighed 115lbs at surgery. PS implanted under the muscle and did a "mini lift" supra-Aerolar Tuck. Basically lifted the nipples up a bit. I have felt these implants were too large for my frame from the beginning. If only... 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

I had large saggy D's since I was quite young. in 2003 I decided to have a much needed breast lift I was 34 years old. The lift went well it is amazing what the difference a lift can do but I felt I didn't have the fullness I wanted. In 2004 I went with 600cc implants. at this point I have... READ MORE
