Breast implant removal is a surgical procedure performed when a woman decides she no longer wants her implants. The surgery can address concerns like implant malfunction, capsular contracture, and dissatisfaction with breast size. It's also commonly performed on women who have experienced sagging due to aging, pregnancy, or weight fluctuations. If a woman chooses not to replace her implants, a breast lift can be done at the same time to address skin that may have been stretched. LEARN MORE >

I had my first implant surgery at age 16 (Back in 1984) (Mom gave permission for the surgery). Had very small AA cup breast to begin with then upgraded to a small B with my first set of under the muscle silicone implants. (175cc? I think.) Had those for about 8 years and decided I wanted to go a... READ MORE

Shorty after I noticed one of my breast was not softening up. Turned out I had CApsular contractor on my right breast . Had a full... READ MORE

Hi ladies, Before I start, I want to thank you all for posting your incredible, brave and sometimes a teeny bit scary stories regarding implants and the long road to making the decision to explant. I have found this website both informative and encouraging and it has reinforced my own decision... READ MORE

In March 2012 at 24 years old I made the decision to get breast implants. I had always had very small breasts, I couldn't even fill a bra. So I wasn't even an a-cup. Though, I liked my breasts this always bothered me. When the idea occurred to me that I could get implants there was no stopping... READ MORE

I have followed so many journeys in the last few weeks. I just wanted to thank everyone. I'm not the type to post just read. I was going to replace too big implants but have now decided to just get explanation and lift. I never had a problem with my 18 year old saline I just could not stand... READ MORE

Having surgery this week for explant. I loved my implants for a long time but after 15 years these saline bags need to go. Ive been in a lot of pain for over 3 years. Above muscle left one has shifted. They feel very heavy and not part of my body any longer. Although I could probably pay about... READ MORE

I was always embarrassed of my body. I had a very flat chest, with one small b cup and one barely an a cup. Growing up I was teased and made fun of a lot. I have an hour glass figure and was at least a full size bigger on bottom than top. My first duty station was in Las Vegas, where I happened... READ MORE

Hi, I have been following many posts on this site and felt I should share my story and photos for others considering removing their breast implants.

What a gem this site is - wish it'd been here 9yrs ago!! Hopefully sharing my experience will help someone else! I still haven't made up my mind which way to go yet so any nuggets of wisdom will help me! Pre B/A I was a 34AA with slight chest wall deformity (pigeon chest meaning achieving a... READ MORE

In 2007 (age 45) I was a very active person. I worked out everyday, ate right, and kept my weight down but I had "mommy boobs" as I call them. After much research (so I thought) I decided to have a full Breast lift with Saline Implants 250cc filled to 275cc under the muscle from a very... READ MORE

After cc in right breast and pain I'm getting my implants removed. I can't wait. I haven't slept on my stomach for 5 years. I want to ride my horse and run with confidence again. I want to stick my chest out without being self conscious. I want to hold my puppies dogs close to me. I'm... READ MORE

Hello everyone at Real Self and thank you for all your pictures/support. Surgery schedule for 5/6/16. At this time I am very nervous so let me begin my story. At the age of 28 I had my first BA of saline implants under the muscle. I went from AA/A to a full B cup with 250cc. At first I took... READ MORE

I've been contemplating removing my breast implant for quite some time. I was very self conscious about my breasts, always trying to conceal my breasts by wearing minimizers. I was also experiencing a myriad of health issues such as chronic fatigue, neck pain, lower back pain, recurring skin... READ MORE

I'm less than a week away and really nervous. I have capsular contraction and I think they've been in way too long. I don't want to replace them and then one day have to go through all of this again but I'm so afraid that I won't recognize myself after the surgery or that I'll be really... READ MORE

As you can see from the horrendous photos ( I've never taken pics before and I'm shocked at the state of them) these 6 yr old implants have got to be removed. I realise they look hiddious. I have a nasty rash that has developed on left boob and encapsulation. I've had implants since my late 20s... READ MORE
