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.

Had 285cc implants just over a year ago after losing a lot of weight. My 36B breasts looked empty and droopy. I wasn't happy as soon as I had the implants. Although they were a nice shape, they felt false and too big. I looked matronly in some of my clothes and was really conscious. I just hated... READ MORE

I'm wanting to remove my four year old 425cc mentor silicon implants. I got them at the age 24, right after having lost a pregnancy at five months justation. My BF at the time (not anymore) was heavily judgmental of my decrease in breast volume after losing the baby. Being over emotional and... READ MORE

My journey has been long & emotional. I started out with implants when I was 21 & got what I did not want. I asked for a big C, small D & came out with over an F!! I didn't want to be as lopsided (almost a full cup difference on each side) but came out just as lopsided. I've had 5... READ MORE

This is a long complicated story. Many medical wrong turns. 2005 I was 45 and had a breast reduction surgery with anchor cuts. I was appox 115 pounds five foot five, and proper bra size 32E. I wanted a reduction but that year I got very tired, neck pain, jaw pain and chest pain. All symtoms that... READ MORE

I've been wanting to do this for a long long time. Got my silicone implants in 2007 and two consecutive revisions in 2014, 2015 and they both gave me severe capsular contracture and seroma. Terrifyed of what my results will look like also because i'm a smoker and i'm not sure if my skin is... READ MORE

I got a breast augmentation on May 16 2015. Before the implants, I was a size 30C. I had a decent amount of breast tissue and never really considered myself to have "small" boobs...although people would sometimes tell me they were small I always viewed them as the medium/small side. I had always... READ MORE

I'm so very grateful to have found this site! I'm ready to be rid of my 20 year old implants! This site and all the courageous women who have posted has given me the power to explant. I enjoyed my implants at first but I was very young and insecure. Everyone I knew was having it done and I... READ MORE

Like many others I stumbled onto this site and became fascinated with the explant reviews. After reading many, many explant reviews I think I am ready to start my journey now. I am ready to explant and am looking for a PS in the San Diego area. I think I will get consults from two or three... READ MORE

I have wanted a boob job for as long as I can remember. As a teenager I gained a lot of weight, over the course of years I lost 80lbs. The weight loss left me feeling even unhappier with my lil boobs. Gah, if I only could've appreciated my body back then. I felt like I needed big fake tits to be... READ MORE

So about 4 weeks ago I was really still in doubt if I would go for a BA or not. I talked to my surgeon and he said that its an elective surgery so I could do it at any moment in my life. Recently I lost 10Kg, wich made me feel almost with no boobs and very self concious about it, so thats why 3... READ MORE

Hi there, like many others here I unfortunately made the mistake of having an augmentation. I was 24 and had lovely (albeit small) A cups and went up to a size C/D with Harley Medical Group (another mistake made but that's another story!). Although they look great, they don't impact my life in... READ MORE

I got 450 saline implants in 2009 because I had lost my natural big boobs when I lost 20lbs. It was the biggest mistake of my life. I miss my natural boobs, I hate how big these make me look, my husband doesn't like them, I feel like my chest hurts all the time, I get comfortable when I sleep,... READ MORE

My Surgery is next week and i'm super nervous! I've had my implants for about 2 1/2 years I have saline implants under the muscle and I'm ready to have them removed! I'm 5'8 132 and I have rippling and chest pains and I'm just ready to go back to being myself. Hopefully that my boobs will look... READ MORE

I had my first breast augmentation in 2006 with 300cc silicone implants placed below the muscle by Dr. Brad Jacobs. I was a 32B to begin with and the augmentation brought me up to a 32D. Almost immediately after the surgery, I began to develop capsular contracture on the right side which... READ MORE

My story is a long one and filled with complications and heartache. I got implants when I was 26 after the birth of my second child. I was flatter than flat, I know that is hard for most women to understand or grasp, but it is true. Completely flat, no tissue and nipples that were a flap of... READ MORE

Beginning my Breast Implant Removal Journey. I was very young when I made the decision to get them. At this point in my life I want to feel "naturally beautiful" and love myself for who I am. I got my implant in 2003 and I have never had any problems with them. I was very happy with how they... READ MORE

Hi I'm new to this site in 1992 I got Saline Implant over the muscle they are only 225CC, well through the years with weight gain I went from a full C to a DD, not happy.

I have been thinking about getting these boobs out for a couple of years. I had assumed I needed to get a lift as well and wasn't prepared for a lengthy recovery and large expense. But after seeing the results of everyone on this site that had an explanation without a lift, I have decided to... READ MORE
