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 >

30, 1 Child, Time to Get Rid of These Implants

I got under the muscle, saline breast implants when I was 19.I admittedly did it for the wrong reasons, and definitely had some hesitancy leading up to the procedure.

I consulted with Dr. Park about 5 weeks back and felt very calm after leaving my appointment.

He understands that my end goal... READ MORE

Breast augmentation for asymmetry correction - two separate surgeries in this review

Where do I start? Back in 1997 I had my first BA (at the suggestion of my general practitioner) to correct an asymmetry.
