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.

About 18 years ago, I was in an unhealthy relationship and state of mind. I grew up with low self-esteem due to family dynamics, and was with someone who objectified every woman he saw. I was very insecure. I made the decision to get implants, bringing me from a 36B-C to a 36DD. While I had a... READ MORE

My profile picture is of myself, 15 years ago, prior to making the huge mistake of having breast implants. I was a small A. Always liked my breasts, but wished they were bigger. Was totally unaware of all the risks and the major trauma to the body/ pectoral muscles and thought it would be a... READ MORE

Just had my saline implants and a lift yesterday. So far it's been pretty easy. I have take a couple Percocet today and one yesterday. I had saline implants put in under the muscle going from a B to a DD. They felt rippled on the sides and every month I would get what felt like an ovarian cyst.... 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...

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

I had a "mommy makeover" in May 2014: TT with muscle repair, lipo on the hips, BA and BL (lollipop lift). I knew 100% I wanted the tummy tuck; I'd had 4 kids, including a set of twins, and my stomach skin and muscles were shot. I had a nearly 4-finger separation in my abdominal wall and a... READ MORE

I am a little late sharing my story as I didn't find this forum until the night before my procedures.

Hi Everyone, I'll make my story short; I got married at 24 and had a beautiful daughter with my ex-husband at 25. He always wanted me to look more beautiful and more attractive.

I got implants 12 years ago in 2004. I was a late bloomer in middle school that got teased mercilessly by the boys for my skinny arms and flat chest. I even once had a boy embarrass me at age 11 in class by asking me if I had a bra on (I did) and he asked me why I had one since I had no chest..... 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.
