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.

First of all I want to say thank you to everyone who has shared their experiences on this site-it has helped me tremendously in moving forward with my decision to remove my implants. I would not have had the knowledge or the strength to do it without all of you sharing your stories. I had... READ MORE

I am 56 year old. No Kids and Single. I got BA when I was 29 after a divorce. I didn't spend a lot of time thinking about it. Kindof a quick decision, but this was before the internet so there was no way to research it. Before BA I was a 34AA. I wanted to be a cute little B cup. I woke up... READ MORE

HI! I am looking into getting my 275 cc saline implants removed. I've had them for 15 years and they are on top of the muscle. I've only spoken to one doctor so far. I have nursed all 4 of my children luckily without issue, but do have a slight capsular contracture. Doc said he could hear... READ MORE

I'm posting these photos before I write a review because last time I had written my lengthy review and than dang, accidentally erased it before it was posted. So pictures first, then story. :) My basic info is I'm a runner, 5'6", 135 pounds. I don't have any health problems. I want the... READ MORE

I had a breast augmentation revision 4 weeks ago in London after 17 years of implants from the age of 23. I don't know what my bra size was before the implants, I didn't need a bra, but you can see in my pictures from the first pre-op surgery. My current surgeon says I was an A cup. I had 270cc...

So i had my BA 7 weeks ago and I'm already pretty sure I want to explant very soon. The reasons for this is many but the main reason is that I hate my results. My PS lowered my folds about 4 cm (i think), and it was way too much! I look really bad right now. Other reasons are: implants are too... READ MORE

Hi there, I am 53 years old and am booked in to have my implants removed after 20 years... I had implants put in stupidly after my divorce to give me confidence.. to be honest after being size 34A I did like the look of them now 34D... BUT and this is a big but... never ever liked them being... READ MORE

Hi everywoman! First I want to apologize for not writing correctly, sorry, English is not my language and I didn´t want to ask for the mistakes to my teacher of English! hahahha Oooh my god this has always been my shameful secret!! :D so with my few English knowledge and with the useful google ...

I had my implants put in when I was 30 - I guess insecurity played a big part looking back. I was a 36 AA (and wanted to be a full C) but ended up a DD..! I absolutely loved them at first, but the novelty of having them wore off after a year or two, and have been pretty much sick ever since with... READ MORE

I had breast implants over the muscle implanted in December 2011, the look and feel of the implants were not what I had expected or hoped for. After having my two children, my once naturally full bust was a little less pert and at the time I wrongly felt that surgery was the answer! What a bad... READ MORE

I had been ill from being allergic to silicone and my implants for over 28 years. Dr. S. Warnock expertise, artsy, talent and compassion made my experience and explant of my old implants so easy. Dr. Warnock is just a real human being, you can tell he cares. He is an excellent surgeon and... READ MORE

I got my breast augmentation in 2004 (under the muscle) along with lipo (thighs, back, neck, hips) and an upper eyelid lift. I had saline, not sure of the fill, also not sure what size I was beforehand (it's been so long!) I can't remember how long it was (maybe a year?) after the procedure that... 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

I've never been more excited. Like many on this forum, I had implants done too young (21 years old) because of my lack of self-esteem. I had NO boobs, none whatsoever, and just wanted to feel more feminine, more proportionate. I can honestly say that I've hated them since the first year I... READ MORE

I had my first child at 18 years of age and 2 more by the time I was 21. After breast feeding my son, I found that my breast tissue was just MIA! Missing altogether. All that seemed to be left was the skin. Only 18 years old and I felt that my breasts looked 40 years older, like 2 fried eggs... 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

I've been wanting to remove my implants for a time, but I was unsure if I wanted to replace them or just remove them. I was conflicted with the way they would look, but now I don't care with aesthetic as much as I want my health back. I got my implants right out of high school, because I felt... READ MORE

Today is Thursday 5th May and in 18 days I will be having my 12 year old PIP ruptured implants removed. The silicone has emigrated to my under arm lymph nodes now because I cancelled surgery 2 years ago to remove my intact PIP implants. I put my love of having breasts over my health - crazy,... READ MORE

Ok, so I'm having these removed this week and super excited! The doctor before did a wonderful job, and they look really good as is now, but I just want to be me again. I got them 16 years ago, no problems, just a little rippling. As a marathon runner, they hamper my running time to say the... READ MORE

So 2 days ago I had my 500cc cohesive gel implants removed after 11yrs. They made me a 30ff on a size 8 (uk) frame which has just served to make me look frumpy and matronly. I got the implants initially after 3 children and being empty. I have no idea why I didn't have a lift back then , it... READ MORE
