Breast implant removal is a surgical procedure performed when a woman decides she no longer wants her implants. The surgery can address concerns like implant malfunction, capsular contracture, and dissatisfaction with breast size. It's also commonly performed on women who have experienced sagging due to aging, pregnancy, or weight fluctuations. If a woman chooses not to replace her implants, a breast lift can be done at the same time to address skin that may have been stretched. LEARN MORE >

The implants I got were 500cc high profile Mentor silicone gel, under the muscle. The incision was threw the nipple. I am explanting in 6 weeks,... READ MORE

I am 5'6", 124 lbs. and 39 years old. The breast implants and lift came after my kids. I did have As before nursing and they settled around droopy Bs. The implants brought me to large Cs. They never settled properly, the areola stretched out and the right side has ruptured. So ready to rid of... READ MORE

First, I want to thank everyone here for sharing your stories. You have helped me understand the risks and given me the courage to make the choices I'm making. Back in 1993, when I removed the bandages after my original (beneath the muscle) breast augmentation surgery, I immediately felt regret... READ MORE

I had my 350cc saline implants put in almost 11 years ago sub-muscular. I was 38 years old. I'm 49 years old now, and the thought of celebrating my 50th birthday implant free truly delights me.

On March 14, 2016 I had breast augmentation surgery and had low profile 300cc silicone implants put into my body. I went into the BA very unsure and nervous.

As I got closer to the time to have my second implant surgery, I thought about removing them instead of replacing them. The more I thought about it, the more I liked the idea and realized I was emotionally and physically ready for this change. The augmentation was done 8 years ago and I was... READ MORE

I have scheduled my implant removal for Oct 11th. I have had my implants for approx. 25 years. I've had them both replaced once during that time and the left one replace 3 other times due to repeated capsules. I once again have a capsule on the left and it on again off again is uncomfortable. I... 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

Surgery is scheduled. I decided 1.5 years ago after 2 kids and 70 lb weight loss I wanted my boobs back. They looked like flat pancakes that I had to always wear a push up bra. After a consult with my dr he suggested ump,ants to give me the fullness I desired. He did not think I needed a lift... READ MORE
