Finding A Surgeon?
Thank you for the question.
Check with the American Board of Plastic Surgery and/or The American Society of Plastic Surgeons for plastic surgeons appropriately trained and certified in your area. This is a good place to start.
Next evaluate the experience level and quality of results by looking at before and after pictures and examining/talking to patients who have had similar procedures performed.
Once you have done enough due diligence research you will feel comfortable with the plastic surgeon you choose.
I hope this helps.
Finding a local plastic surgeon
I would recommend visiting the American Society of Plastic Surgery website for a local board certified plastic surgeon.
Breast implant removal, explantation
If the implants are not you, then remove them. The process is straightforward with a simple recovery. We all make mistakes, and you can live well without implants if you so choose.
Best of luck,

Breast implant removal (explantation)
Removing breast implants with no reinsertion can be done well in experienced hands. There are some special techniques that can be done at the time of surgery to shrink down the pocket and allow the skin to contract more efficiently. Your overall outcome will also depend on how large your implants are and how much natural breast tissue you have left. Sometimes, patients will not even need a lift in the future; but this is a possibility.

Fortunately you've heard the truth repeatedly, but I think you're right. You will enjoy having them removed, with a nice lift. Best wishes,
Would like an explant of my breast implants
I would also agree with the others to get multiple opinions. As Plastic Surgeons, we are not against removing implants, we just want to make sure that you and anyone else that is undergoing explantation understands that there is a significant degree of uncertainty as to how your breasts will heal without the implant volume.
I hop that helps!

It is obvious you already know the downsides of having breast implants removed. The implant removal can be straight forward or slightly complicated based on the type of implants, location and their status. You and your surgeon need to discuss if you should or should not have a breast lift at the same time.
For a list of qualified Plastic surgeons in your area go to The American Society of Plastic Surgeons wwwplasticsurgeryorg.
