WORTH IT RATING 1,226 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 have had saline implants in my body for 17 years now. Back when I got them, I was only 22 years old and did not have enough self-confidence to understand that this was a major shift not only in my body, but also my health. I have come to accept them as part of me over the years, but now I have... READ MORE

I'll be brief for now. I had implants 3 years ago because I was starting to feel like age was catching me up. i didn't want big ones, just young ones. But I went from 32A to 32DD. They hurt most of the time, and I've lost pleasant sensation in the nipple - which are now over sensitive, giving me... READ MORE

Removal of Mentor textured implants had them in from 26 - 42 years of my life. Too long but I had no complications. They looked great and my original ps did not want to remove them. My apt consisted of a 1.5 hours discussion about how I would hate my boobs afterwards, my tummy would be bigger... READ MORE

After coming to this website and reading so many stories of women with the same symptoms as I have, I have finally decided to remove my 9 year old implants.

I had implants installed in me by my parents in 1973. I was 16. I was never asked. A Houston doctor, (Dr. Robert Wise) put them in me. I recall that he told me that I was deformed. I think my mom had him tell me that so that I would feel better about the surgery. They were silicone with... READ MORE

I had my daughter when I was 17. I breastfed and lost a lot of breast tissue so was left with small saggy breasts. I never remember wearing a bra smaller than a 34C but I'm thinking I has so much skin that its what was filling up my bra rather than tissue. I worked really hard to get the money... READ MORE

I had Saline Breast Implants put in about 10 years ago. I was never really happy. They were 400 cc's or maybe even bigger. They were quite big and I could never wear the cute clothes, that I once loved. Finding a Swimsuit Top was always a problem. Almost immediately after the Surgery my left... 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 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...
