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.

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

Hi I've had my breast implants since 2005. I have 345cc left and 365cc right. My implants are under the muscle. First of all I would like to say this site is wonderful!!! My journey has been rough. I've regretted having my implants since day 1. I didn't realize that they could change your life... READ MORE

I have to start this off by saying that I loved my implants. They looked amazing! They were under sub-muscular (300 cc) and looked/ felt real! I got them at 31 years of age because I'd always wanted bigger boobs and had enough money in the bank to pay in full. I went to a surgeon in Austin, TX... READ MORE

Oy, what a mental process this has become! Let's start from the beginning... At 23, I decided I was ready to get a BA. I found a doctor that I liked and trusted and scheduled my BA. What drew me to him was that he was a pioneer and very proficient in using the TUBA incision. I had a great... READ MORE

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

I got implants as an insecure 25 year old. To be honest I did love them but as I grew older my paranoia about having these things in my body increased, especially as I discovered I had been given the PIP implants (later replaced). I am planning on having kids in the near future and couldn't... 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.

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

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

My story is somewhat long and complicated but to shorten it up, I am 51 yrs old. At 50 I had my first BA with 500 cc Saline under the muscle. ... 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

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
