Breast Implant Removal

Write a review

WORTH IT RATING 1,276 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've been reading many explant stories on this website. They have given me so much hope that I could look normal again without these ugly balls stucked on my chest. I'm 44 years old, and as long I remember, I never liked my breasts. As a teenager, I was a bit overweight and my breast became huge... READ MORE

I have literally been through hell and back with breast implants over the last 15yrs. At the time I got them- no one could have talked me out of it. I remember thinking that really the benefits outweighed any risks (which surgeons kept stressing was a VERY small percentage of issues). I had no... READ MORE

Silicone breast implants were done in 2012 at age 33 post-divorce. Went from barely A to full C. Fortunately, I had zero problems with the surgery and no health issues. After about a year, the thought crossed my mind to remove them as a preventative health measure, based of an article I read.... READ MORE

I got 450 saline implants in 2009 because I had lost my natural big boobs when I lost 20lbs. It was the biggest mistake of my life.
