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.

Hi Lovely Ladies! Thinking of you when writing this, thank you so much! I appreciate each and every one of you! So God bless you all, you have both moved and inspired me! You have all been so influential in shaping my decision to make it a top priority to move forward to remove the silicone... 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

I'm 46...divorced mother of three. I have silicone gel implants now for 12 yrs. Loved my little size B breast but they were empty bags after breast-feeding 3 boys. My breast were so huge while breast feeding and I never felt comfortable with large breastsand was happy when they shrunk back... 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

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

I have been reading the reviews for a year now - learning, researching and interviewing PS's. I appreciate the time all of the participants on this site have taken to document and share their experiences. It truly gave me a direction and managed my expectations. I am turing 50, and have had my... 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

In mai 2009 at age 18 I did a breast argumentation. Now at 24 years old I am ready to be me again! I hope the pain will be gone and my sensation will return in my breasts over time after the explanation. They look a bit sad and saggy now, hopefully they will fluff back over time. Have been in...

Had my first implants in 1999. I was part of a case study and while breast feeding my eight month old third child (born in 2004), my left breast implant deflated. I had to stop breastfeeding and two weeks later implants were replaced at no cost to me. (I was glad it happened for the fact that... READ MORE

For as long as I can remember I wanted big boobs. I wanted them before I even developed. I can only blame Barbie for this! I grew up being thin with small boobs. I was teased some with the old “mosquito bites” & “ant-hill” comments, but most kids left me alone because I fought back. I put on ... READ MORE

I've recently lost 60 pounds and finally feel like I can wear most clothing without feeling self conscious. In losing that weight I was left with stretched out skin on my stomach that won't go away. I had breast implants about 12 years ago and never was really happy with the size...too big. I... 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

So my surgery date is coming up soon and I'm getting really nervous. When I was 19 years old I had no fear. Now that I'm older I feel much more afraid of things. I know I can get through it, it's just nerve wracking at first. I have saline Implants at the moment and I believe I'm a D, but... READ MORE

First of all thank you to all the ladies out there who have been explaining their experience out there on their implant removal process. I have been reading all of your experiences and feeling all sorts of emotions, excited, nervous, scared, fearful, and hopeful. I think you have been going... READ MORE

Ok so here's my story. Like many others, I am passing it along so hopefully it will help others as others' has helped me. I will give the condensed version. When I was young, I was stupid and insecure, so I got implants. Now that I"m all grown up (physically), I want them out. I'm insecure... 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

In 1996, less than a year after the birth of my 4th child, and months before my impending divorce, (it was an eventful year! ) I had breast augmentation surgery with Saline Implants placed beneath my pectoral muscles. At the time my breasts greatly resembled acorn squash, and were closer to... READ MORE

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. Teasing and an awful unfaithful first marriage mate that said hurtful things, which left me feeling like I'd never offer another man a... 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
