In 2008, I decided to get saline breast implants. At the time I really thought it was a good decision. I now know that it wasn't. I was a 34b and after implants went to a 38dd, much bigger than what I actually wanted. In eight years, I've gained 30 lbs. and I look so top heavy. Not sure if weight gain/depression was due to these big bags on my chest. I hate my implants and can't wait to be... more
I have the same story as everyone. I was young and at 19 got breast implants. I asked for a natural C cup, but ended up a small D. Now 12 years later, the implants are causing back pain, and feel heavy. I am on the smaller side 5'5 and weigh 120 pounds. I am going to have Dr. Rotatori remove them. He is also going to do some internal lifting and stitching. I am super excited.... more
I got saline implants when I was 25 years old. I only had 240 cc's. I got lucky, had natural look, they were pretty, perfect for my frame, not too big. When I was 44, I began suffering chronic pain and stiffness in my neck, upper girdle, and collar bone area. My fiance suggested my implants could be the cause and that I get them out. I did. I went to Dr. Rotatory's office in Orlando for... more
Best decision ever! Wish I had done this 9 yrs ago.
When I was 33 yrs old I went to surgeon to get a breast lift only. He refused and said I'd be a lot happier with a small implant to add volume .
270cc saline implants were added with the lift procedure. I went in a 34c and came out a DD. I've had large natural breast my whole life and those bags of saline were so miserable to carry around.... more
Thank you to all the brave women on this site for sharing your experience. I have been thinking about explanting for about a year and finally got serious a few months ago. I went to four different doctors in the Orlando area before deciding. This site helped me make my decision to explant, and I'm so glad I found it.
My first ba was in 1987 when my oldest son was 15 mon old. I received 300... more
Having hated my implants from day one, I was finally financially and emotionally ready to have them removed. I did not want to go back to the PS who had performed the implant as I was unhappy with the results of the initial surgery. As I began having consultations with surgeons to discuss what I hoped to achieve as results, I began hearing that any further surgeries would be considered high... more
I had my implants removed after nine years. It has only been one week and I am so happy. I don't look much different than I did nine years ago. I am 49 yrs old now and apart from 7 lbs different, I look the same as before. My implants were to big for me and never felt right. They were uncomfortable and felt really heavy, I went from a 36C to a 36DD.
It cost me $3850. to remove and apart from... more
I have had my breast implants twice and I just want them out of me. I am having hardening of the left implant along with pain. I had a consultation with Dr. Hartog in Winter Park, Florida. His staff is very nice. I am very nervous about losing the nipple. Spoke with another surgeon today who told me that there is a high risk that I may lose the nipple since this is the third time. I am going... more
I had breast augmentation 25 yrs. ago. As soon as I received them I felt a decrease in energy that never left me. I learned to live with it. They were always heavy and uncomfortable especially when I layed on my back at night. One implant had hardened and both were suspected of leakage. The surgery was performed on 1/22/13 and was unremarkable, mostly painless, and short-lived. I was home 6... more
Three weeks ago I got breast implants. I had 3 kids in the last 5 years and my boobs had paid the price by looking saggy and deflated. In addition no matter how much my husband would try to pretend, it was obvious that he was not a fan of my saggy deflated look. So I did 6 consultations and all 6 docs suggested a lift and implants.
After picking a doctor I went in to pick a size. My goal... more
I had a complicated case with moderate capsular contracture and very large breast implants that I wanted removed. I asked Dr. Rotatori to remove the implants and the surrounding scar tissue as one unit. He did such an amazing job and gave me a full anchor lift. I am extremely happy with the results!
This pic was taken on 9/11/14 which is 2 yrs post surgery. more
I finally decided to share my story with you guys because reading all the reviews have helped me so much, I would like to be able to help out however I can. I got my saline implants put in in 2004 under the muscle. Never had a problem but my PS kept telling me I had to wait for them to drop and that it would take some time. Well they never did. About 2 years later I went back... more
Hi! I'm new to the board! I had implants put in June 9th 2012....that's right only 2.5 months and I never liked the size from the beginning. I have 300 cc's under the muscle (silicone). I told the doc I wanted to be a B cup and I'm almost a 32D (depending on the bra). I'm 5'2 100lbs a size 0 in clothing. So these implants are extremely big for me.
Aside from me not liking the size, I've... more

I had my saline implants in over the muscle in December of 1998. I was barely an A cup so my 400 cc's brought me up to a full D. I was 25 so I thought that was great. I also modeled so I felt more confident with the D's. I'm now 38. I dont do much modeling. More acting and stunt work now. If I am needed to stunt double a girl with a small chest I usually lose that job. Over the... more
I had 325cc silicone gel implants in 2007. I liked how natural they looked but really missed small breasts. I felt they made me look heavier in pictures and never felt like a part of my body.
I had them removed September 2011 under local anesthesia and it was quick and painless. They gave me valium and it was over quickly.
I researched many doctors because my doctor had retired. Dr.... more
One of my 13+ year old implants had ruptured, and needless to say I was concerned and unsure of my options. I could not take off work at this time to get them removed, and being lopsided was mentally taking it's toll.
After a very informative consultation and tour with Dr. F and his staff, I went ahead and had the other implant deflated. Was quick and practically painless! I will be... more
