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.

I'm 2 days post op and have to say thank you to all the women on this site who have shared their experiences and helped me make the decision to explant my 16 year old, sub-muscular saline implants. I already believe it's one of the best decisions of my life. I already feel better than I have in... READ MORE

My motivation for explant involved progressive hardening of my implants over time, and a sister who was diagnosed with breast cancer. 3 doctors told me implants don't affect early detection, but I felt safer removing them. I selected a female MD in Nashville. I would highly recommend her.... READ MORE

Hi there! I've been thinking about removing my breast implants for a few months now. I recently stumbled upon this site and it has given me the motivation and courage to move forward with my decision. I got a breast augmentation in May 2003. I had always been so self-conscious of my uneven... READ MORE

I have not had my consult yet. It keeps getting moved up. MRI shows rupture of silicone, under the muscle implant on right side. (Just found out). Am I hoping against hope that if I could get the procedure done in the next few weeks, I would be okay to make this trip, hauling luggage, etc? ... READ MORE

I've been lurking here for some time. I had a TT, scar revision and BA (38A/AA before 38 D after) done in 2004 by Dr. Lisa Lynn Sowder. She did a wonderful job and honestly the process was not much different than having a c-section or hysterectomy ( I've had both). It's been more than 10... READ MORE

This website has been so incredibly helpful for me to decide AND TO STAY DECIDED that it was time to remove my implants that I owe this special community my own story. It is definitely not an easy decision to make and an emotional roller coast ride which I am still on. I think we all wish that... READ MORE

Had saline implants over muscle placed in 2009. I've had extreme fatigue ever since. Back pain, left under arm pain, and left breast in constant pain. I can't tolerate any touching. Sometimes clothing feels like razor blades on my nipples!! They are so heavy I have to wear a bra 24/7. It's... READ MORE

Dr Melmed in Dallas removed my implants and capsules two days ago. What an amazing difference in how i feel just two days post-explant! I can't believe it. I was afraid I wouldn't feel better right away, but I do!!! I was in terrible joint pain, fatigue, malaise and depression, brain fog,... READ MORE

When I was 23 , I was a 32 B with a tiny upper body but with womanly hips. After much research, I made the decision to have 325cc HP mentor smooth silicone implants. My mother has implants, as do both of my grandmothers (all still in tact after 20+ years) so that gave me more peace of mind... READ MORE

I feel healthier, happier and have my self confidence back!!! I am free from the 4 years implant prison I had sentenced myself!... READ MORE

I want to say thank you to all those women who have bravely told their stories here, because of you I am now moving toward the goal of removing the implants in my body. Several weeks ago, not feeling well I went on my support group forum and saw a posting where a women who had breast implant... READ MORE

So I'm 30lbs heavier than when I got my @300-350cc saline implants under the muscle and I was very happy with my new enhanced body for years. Now time and weight gain have taken their toll and my boobs feel huge and pendulous and just in my way. My natural breast tissue is beginning to hang off... READ MORE

I've been looking on real self for about 3 years now, watching many women go through the process of having their implants removed. I have wanted to do it for 5+ years now but quite frankly have been quite frightened by the idea of how I will look after. Just as every woman I have followed has... READ MORE

I wanted to have these breast implants out for a while and finally had the nerve to go through with it. They ere hard as rocks and started getting a little deformed. I talked to my husband, who has only seen me with the size 32D breast and needed to have him on board with this. He was totally... READ MORE

I always had small asymmetrical 34AA breasts.. After my very abusive marriage ended I decided to needed to 'fix' something to make me more worthy so had a BA I had 220 which suited my small frame. It was the best thing for me at the time giving an immense confidence boost and with now 34b... READ MORE
