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.

After 15 years, I am ready to have itty bitty boobies again! I was small-average pre-kids (34B), but after nursing 3 kids I went to a 34 A, nearly AA. Nothing. Nada. So I wanted boobs again, like I had had when I was lactating (up to 34C+). I went with an out-of-town doctor who did... READ MORE

I am writing this review to receive support and give support to us deserving, strong women who have been through hell with our plastic surgery choices.

Had I a time machine... I bet we have all experienced that at some time regarding something or another, mine in regards to playing into the hand of bullies.

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

So I guess you can say my story started 9 years ago. I was 25 years old and had been thinking for a long time that I wanted to get my breasts "fixed" as I had very saggy c-cup boobs. After MUCH contemplating I decided to go and see a plastic surgeon to see what could be done about them. I was... READ MORE

I finally got the courage to schedule my procedure to remove my breast implants, no lift. I have wanted to remove them for a while but was scared of how they're going to look afterwards.

Hello again RS people!! I was on here last Aug for tummy tuck, never knowing I would be back with ruptured saline breast implants, one to be exact. The first pair was put in in 1988, both ruptured in 95, replaced. Now my right side ruptured and my PS suggested removal with lift. So here I am!! I... READ MORE

Where to start... I've always been more of a listener then a talker, I am quite guarded when it comes to sharing about myself. I never wanted to be defined by having implants, so no one knows except for my sweet husband and a couple of close friends. i wanted to look natural, and not be big. I'm... 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 everyone! I am in the process of having my 3 year old silicone high profile implants removed. They are in a subglandular position. In December I started to be able to feel a piece of my implant poking through my tissue very close underneath my skin. At first it just felt like a bubble and... READ MORE

My initial BA was strongly influenced by people in my close environment. Some had undergone the procedure and I was "promised" a BA from a young age. If they wouldn't develop more by the time I was 18 I could always get one. It was not the wisest strategy but well intentioned. Once I made the... READ MORE
