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.

I hope I can correct this before it is too late. My husband and I have been trying for a baby for over 4 and a half years. After recently seeing a fertility doctor to help investigate it turns out my high prolactin levels could be causing my body to give off the signal I am breast feeding. ... READ MORE

Today is Thursday 5th May and in 18 days I will be having my 12 year old PIP ruptured implants removed. The silicone has emigrated to my under arm lymph nodes now because I cancelled surgery 2 years ago to remove my intact PIP implants. I put my love of having breasts over my health - crazy,...

I had sore feet, flare ups on my knees and shoulders that felt like work out injuries. I recently found out my symptoms were of mold toxicity. I found a doctor in Miami who is a fat grafting specialist and familiar with explants. They are few and far between. That specialty is very important for... READ MORE

I will be updating more this evening. I am doing an entirely new posts because I couldn't do another "BREAST Implant removal" review because I already have one (that should have been breast implants anyways , since my original doctor is reviewed. I didn't know how to do this and I also have... READ MORE

I originally got my 420cc silicone gel implants when I was 24 years old, most likely out of some type of insecurity. After many life changes, and personal growth. I felt that I had outgrown my implants. I also didn't like how they moved around under my skin, and make me feel tight in the... READ MORE

Phew, so I have finally decided I want to book my explant for May 2016, and I'm both excited and terrified! I had my first BA at 18; 280cc silicone cohesive gels under the muscle. I had always felt so self conscious about my tiny 32AA boobs, although I now realise i had barely given them a... READ MORE

I had my implants put in when I was 30 - I guess insecurity played a big part looking back. I was a 36 AA (and wanted to be a full C) but ended up a DD..! I absolutely loved them at first, but the novelty of having them wore off after a year or two, and have been pretty much sick ever since with... READ MORE

I have decided to write my story after thinking about it for a long time. I guess I haven’t done it yet mainly, let’s be honest, because I am a bit embarrassed. But everyone here has helped me so much, that the least I can do is try to pay it forward. My first language is not English, sorry if ... READ MORE

Hi! I had implants put in 11 yrs ago after giving birth my second time. I've always been large chested and I've battled weight issues most of my adult life. I'm comfortable now at a size 14 pants, but I have to wear a 1X top. I would be thrilled for a L after I'm done with everything. My... 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

So i had my BA 7 weeks ago and I'm already pretty sure I want to explant very soon. The reasons for this is many but the main reason is that I hate my results. My PS lowered my folds about 4 cm (i think), and it was way too much! I look really bad right now. Other reasons are: implants are too... READ MORE

Hello everyone! Finally I took the strength and push to write here my story. I thank a lot to all the brave girls that share their story in this page, cause when I was on the other "fake and hard" side they were of lot of help. I believe the society fills you with lot of information and images... READ MORE

Ok, so I'm having these removed this week and super excited! The doctor before did a wonderful job, and they look really good as is now, but I just want to be me again. I got them 16 years ago, no problems, just a little rippling. As a marathon runner, they hamper my running time to say the... READ MORE

Getting back to me - my explant journey! Hey ladies, thank you so much for all of the amazing personal stories of bravery and self-acceptance. I could not have come to this decision on my own. I have my explant scheduled for May 13th and although I am nervous, I really can not get in there... READ MORE

Hi, I am a 45 yrs young woman, I had my first sets of implants when I was 25 and then when I was 37 i was told that my implants were broken (which I have my suspicions they weren't) and the surgeon didn't hear what I said and put more CC than I asked for. I can't remember how much he put but I... READ MORE

PAST After two pregnancies and breastfeeding my perky B cup breasts were flat and saggy. I could not get a bra to fit me. After years of frustration I felt my only option was breast implants to fill out my breasts and fill a bra. In 2002 I had 425cc silicone implants put in over my muscle. I... READ MORE

Hello. I have been following stories of implant removal on here for the last two years. This site has been a source of Major encouragement and I thank everyone before me who posted their story! Now that I have my removal surgery booked I want to do my part by sharing for other women going... READ MORE

I had implants put in almost 7 years ago after having kids. I said "fill 'em up". At the time I was 130 lbs (5'5") I was always large breasted and thought I would be fine without a lift. So against the advice of my ps, I only had the implants. They looked awesome for the first few years.... READ MORE
