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.

Hello Dear Ladies, I am 47 years old with 18 year old saline under the muscle implants and have today started the process to get them out. Before BA I was a 34 barely A and now a 36 D. When I first got them they were supposed to be a C and they were for a short time then I gained weight. I just... READ MORE

First implants were way to big. My friends said if you're going to get them, get at least a C. My Dr only wanted to do a B and I should have listened. I was tiny, 5' 85 lbs. 20 years old and a 32a at the time. So, November 1993, I got saline Mentor 300cc and immediately hated them. All anyone... READ MORE

Ok so i'll try to keep it brief...i was an A cup for 36 years however i was a 38 A which is kind of a weird size, right? hard size to find, seems most bras are more like a 38D!? anyway, i was always unhappy with my small breasts, even after having 3 children in my early 20's they really didn't...

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

Hello! I am new to this forum and have loved reading all the breast explant stories. Thank you for sharing... it's really helping me in my journey. I'm 47 and had saline implants put in under the muscle when I was 29 years old. I went from a 32 AA to 32 full C. Unlike some of the posts... READ MORE

Hi! Well I am excited to report that after 9 yrs I am finally removing my silicone under the muscle implants. I first had implants put in during my last year of college, I chose saline implants through the underarm area that took me from about a 34 b to a 34 c bra size. I was very happy with... READ MORE

First off thank you to all the ladies that have posted about their experiences with explanting and the health concerns that came with having implants. After many years of suffering from neck, back, shoulder joint pain, and mimic'ed autoimmune disease, I was at a loss. I went to several doctors... READ MORE

I got implants when I was 20. I was just insecure and thought implants were the answer. I enjoyed having big boobs at first. Now, I'm married with 3 kids and I just feel like I look foolish. My breast are too big and now saggy, I look frumpy. I'm so grateful I have been able to successfully... READ MORE

I got my implants 8 years ago and it's time to remove them. I just want to be me; the natural me. I was beautiful before my surgery and I just wanted my old me back. So my search for finding the right Doctor began. Shortly after my search, I found just the right Doctor: Dr. Daniel Kim in... READ MORE

So my story - I was 18 years old and insecure with one breast slightly larger than the other (probably not more than one size difference) Left A and Right B., and realised later in life that this is very common. But as a naive teenager, paralysed by fear, it felt like the end of the world. So... READ MORE

And so the journey begins. I have gained so much from reading the reviews on this site, it would be unfair not to return the favor. Twenty one years ago, when I was very young and underweight (5'6" and 105lbs) I decided that I simply had to have breast implants. If I had only listened to my... READ MORE
