10 Yr Old Implant Removal 300cc Without Lift??

Like so many of you lovely ladies I regret ever getting my implants. They look awful imo and I'm ready to be natural again ...even though I am petrified of what my breasts will be like after explant. My health has not been great these last few years and so I'm extra scared of going under the... READ MORE

53 Y.o. W/ 18 Y.o. Implants - Just Got Them out !!

I had 300cc saline under-muscle implants, which came out 2 days ago (with capsulectomy). I'm 5'9" and 130 lbs. I was originally an A-cup, and became a C-cup. Quick journey: I've had 2 sets. First at 25, then at 35. After the last time (18 years in), I was getting painful problems after about... READ MORE

Are my 7 Year Implants Really Making Me Sick?

I've never wrote a blog or review, but I feel very passionate about this subject. I am 32, recently re-married and a mother of a 10 year old daughter. I had 400-420 cc Mentor augmentation under the muscle about 3 years after my daughter was born (around 2009). Before pregnancy I had very... READ MORE

Ready for my body to match my mind. *Explant* 27 Years Old... 3 Years Post BA - I.E. , CA

I'll start right off the bat by saying I don't even have a consultation booked...though I have doctors in mind and will hopefully be consulting within the next couple of months.

Explant and Lift...Very Happy!

15 years ago, at age 47, I had saline round implants placed on top of the muscle. I had always had small, droopy breasts, (ptosis), and after losing 20 lbs., I decided to do it. The PS recommended 350 cc implants. I went from barely a 34B to a 36C. I developed encapsulation of the left breast... READ MORE

Explant (en bloc) with lift

Dr. Darrow is awesome! I had a great experience from start to today, day after surgery. I loved his staff as well, they were upbeat and funny and put me at ease. I had 13 year saline under muscle implants removed en bloc with a lift. I was surprised to be able to see my results right after... READ MORE

Great Relief

I had breast implant surgery twice some years ago but unfortunately it had been complicated with unexplained, painful swelling on my right breast. After seeking advice from my first plastic surgeon, I was then referred to see Dr Choy for further management due to his expertise and experience in... READ MORE

Breast implant removal and lift

I am 5'3" and typically about 140 lbs. My pre-implant size was 34DD. I had a child and breastfed, and went through some weight fluctuations. I was never very happy about the shape of my breasts, even as a teenager, as I felt they were too wide and too droopy. About 7 years ago, I went seeking a... READ MORE

Bye Bye Boobies

I got breast implants in 2011. The surgery went great and I healed quickly. They were prefect but definitely HUGE! My goal with the implants was to fill up my "rock in a sock" looking breasts. With the recommendation from my ps, I decided on 450cc high profile saline implants. Per my doctors... READ MORE

14 Yr Old Saline Sub-muscular Implants - Want Them Out!

I have had my implants for almost 14 years and have decided I no longer want them. I always planned on getting them replaced after having kids, but have decided to explant for health reasons. I haven't felt great for about 2 years now and have strange symptoms and never attributed them to my... READ MORE

19 years old, explant after 10 months.

Let me begin this by saying I never really wanted implants (or big boobs) in the first place, I just thought they were necessary to fix the significant asymmetry i have. I emphasized this many times to my initial surgeon who assured me she will only bring me up to a B cup, maybe a small C. I was... READ MORE

Breasts ruined by implants 1.5 Yrs Ago, Early 30s

I wrote a review on my breast implants and the reasons I wanted them removed, but I would also like to start a review here as well because I'm looking for support and advice about explant. Long story short, I had BA after stopping birth control pills because of melasma. My breasts lost several... READ MORE

Explanted and happy!

I am going to get an explant soon and I have been having nightmares. My implants are silicone and the left one has been ruptured for a long time and I didn't even know it. I have been reading everyone's experiences to cope, but I am still concerned. I do however, want to get these implants out.... READ MORE

Backstory for bilateral breast explant or implant removal and tummy tuck by Dr. Royal Gerow

I was a PYT at the age of 25 when I decided to get saline breast implants. I still feel like they were totally worth it. They made me feel much more proportional. I am Latina and at the time had very small breasts but a decent size booty. But, 10 years later, and some Irish twins, I was ready... READ MORE

Explantation of 450 Cc Saline Under the Muscle. 6 Years Post Op - Irvine, CA

I'm motivated to remove my implants because the right one has become hard and also I feel as though having large boobs isn't that much important to me any more. I do crossfit and they get in the way when doing some lifts and running is more difficult with them. no more foreign bodies in mine!... READ MORE

Explant 525cc Sientra Textured Implants with Dr. Pousti

When I originally came on realself to find a revisionary surgeon I scoffed at the number of reviews Dr. Pousti had. I thought for certain he would not have time for me and I would certainly walk out of his office with enormous tits. I can say with utmost certainty, Dr. Pousti does not have a... READ MORE
