WORTH IT RATING 1,275 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 that time i did realize that my breast felt much harder than the... READ MORE

I had my first set of implants in 2005. As soon as I saw them right after surgery, I knew they didn't look right. Sure enough, they were uneven. One sat higher than the other. I was so upset. At my post op visit, the doctor said that they would settle down and they would be even. Well long story... READ MORE

Hello - I decided back in 2002 to have breast implants w/a lift due to a new marriage to a much younger man and feeling very insecure about my boobs. You see my husband is a BOOB man! As you can see in my first photos I was what I call "snoopy ears" due to breast feeding. I had one of the best... READ MORE

After 15 years of implants over the muscle, I'm ready to go a more natural route. Tired of shopping for huge bras ( 34DD). Also I want to workout and not worry about giving myself a black eye :). This started around June when I had an injury at work. I hit my left elbow really hard and... READ MORE

I don't usually post things online, but I've found this site SO helpful that I feel like I need to pay it forward for those considering implant removal. My ex plant is scheduled for next week and I'm terrified! I've had implant since I was 18 (with 2 revisions) and breastfed 4 kids, and am so... READ MORE

I got 325 cc silicone implants when I was 24. I've had them for about 12 years. The day after the surgery I felt that they were too big for my body. I'm 5' 4" and back then I weighed 115 lbs. shortly after the surgery my body started to rearrange itself and I really didn't like the change that... READ MORE

I was young and in my early 20's and my now husband and I were young and working in the states, he was a boob man and always noticed big busted woman and my 32a's just didn't make me feel good so I took the plunge and got saline under the muscle implants with Dr Levens in Fl, as I was quite thin...

Well it all started after having my first 3 children. I have always had big boobs, so after breastfeeding needless to say they sagged and lost volume. I got my first set in 2006, over the muscle 550 cc 34D. When I had my last baby, unexpected pregnancy, they sagged really bad. Got a lift on them... READ MORE

I had breast implants back in 1990. I was originally around a 34A, and went up to a 34D (asked for a C!). My original surgeon was about to retire (i wish he had before he got to me) and was awful. I had really bad scars (he must have made the incisions in the dark) and totally lost sensation... READ MORE

Thank you to all the brave ladies on RS who have shared their stores; I am now inspired to give back by sharing mine. My journey has been a long and painful one. Actually, a bit of a nightmare… Unlike most women, I never wanted large breasts. But, at 18, I ended up with large saggy breasts; I... READ MORE

Pre BA my left breast was 10A & right breast 10B. Even with different sized implants it was still very hard to achieve even sized breasts due to my muscle & nipple positioning. I have Silicone implants (250cc & 275cc) under the muscle. After discovering (from an MRI) that I have a ruptured... READ MORE

I was originally 34C -- Post surgery 34D but now 32E!! No problems at all in these 24 years until I started to have strange symptoms -- abdominal... READ MORE

I don't know where to start except that I wish I had taken explantation more seriously sooner! I have been on here for about 4 years and I feel like there are so many beautiful journeys and that I should finally start my own and share my experience. I've made up my mind, and I must get them...

Like many of you, I made the decision to have breast implants after a divorce. Looking back on my life now I can't believe I thought I wasn't feminine without them. At the time I was working out 2 hours a 33 years old I was in the best shape of my life. I was 5'7" 120 lbs and a size A... READ MORE

Hi Ladies, I have been following explant patients on this site for about a month and the letters and pictures have been so helpful. Now I want to share my own story as I near my surgery date.
