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.

About 18 years ago, I was in an unhealthy relationship and state of mind. I grew up with low self-esteem due to family dynamics, and was with someone who objectified every woman he saw. I was very insecure. I made the decision to get implants, bringing me from a 36B-C to a 36DD. While I had a... READ MORE

I considered removing my 350cc saline high profile implants after 9 years. My once perky breasts were turning heavy and droopy requiring me to strap them in heavily when working out. My once 34d breasts evoled Into a 36 DDD/F size on my 5'5 small frame. They were becoming so cumbersome and all... READ MORE

My goal is to have my implants removed. I have 20 maybe more years of life left and there is a lot of things i want to do! The boobs that once gave me the confidence i needed are just in the way and serving me no purpose. I may very well need a lift six months to a year down the road after I... READ MORE

A huge "thank you" to all those who contribute to this site. The knowledge and insight I gleaned from all the stories and reviews, gave me the courage to get my implants removed. I’ve read and re-read so many inspiring stories. Pictures were a tremendous help. Doctor reviews were very... READ MORE

Like many others I stumbled onto this site and became fascinated with the explant reviews. After reading many, many explant reviews I think I am ready to start my journey now. I am ready to explant and am looking for a PS in the San Diego area. I think I will get consults from two or three... READ MORE

Hi I have been considering getting my implants removed but am terrified of what my real breasts might look after the surgery. I'm afraid they will be saggy, flat and less desirable than beforehand, so I hoping to find some reassurance. I welcome feedback and post op stories of other women who... READ MORE

I am scheduled for my explant on Thursday (in 2 days). I am having my 440CC saline implants explanted under local anesthetic. My PS advised me that this will be a very easy procedure with not much down time - I am only worried that the drains with be a pain, but I'm sure worth it. I got my BA... READ MORE

Hi there ladies! I have found this site so helpful before I got my implants and I am looking for some wisdom now. Here is some info: When I had just turned 19 I went and got 375cc Saline Mentor implants under the muscle. I healed fine and my surgery went well, but they have always been very... READ MORE

Just a year after that I suffered from severe capsular contracture, That I had to live with untill 2003. I another surgery with the... READ MORE

My profile picture is of myself, 15 years ago, prior to making the huge mistake of having breast implants. I was a small A. Always liked my breasts, but wished they were bigger. Was totally unaware of all the risks and the major trauma to the body/ pectoral muscles and thought it would be a... READ MORE

Just had my saline implants and a lift yesterday. So far it's been pretty easy. I have take a couple Percocet today and one yesterday. I had saline implants put in under the muscle going from a B to a DD. They felt rippled on the sides and every month I would get what felt like an ovarian cyst.... READ MORE

In mai 2009 at age 18 I did a breast argumentation. Now at 24 years old I am ready to be me again! I hope the pain will be gone and my sensation will return in my breasts over time after the explanation. They look a bit sad and saggy now, hopefully they will fluff back over time. Have been in...

Hello I have been inspired by many of you to finally take the plunge and have my 17 year old breast implants removed. I got my breast implants the second I turned 18 years old. In high school it was always the idea I had in my head; that when I turned 18, I was going to do it. The courage to go... READ MORE

I have been reading all of these stories and what brave women are out there. I am so nervous and scared that when I get them extracted I will have nothing. I went from a B-C to a DD and now that I have gained weight I am at a 34 H. This is going to be a new adventure. I will post pictures soon,... READ MORE

I had a "mommy makeover" in May 2014: TT with muscle repair, lipo on the hips, BA and BL (lollipop lift). I knew 100% I wanted the tummy tuck; I'd had 4 kids, including a set of twins, and my stomach skin and muscles were shot. I had a nearly 4-finger separation in my abdominal wall and a... READ MORE

I am a little late sharing my story as I didn't find this forum until the night before my procedures. I was scared and nervous, and words cannot describe how much this forum helped ease my mind going into surgery. I have spent hours reading stories during my recovery these last few days, and I'm...
