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 >

39 Years Old, 2 Kids, 6 Year Old Implants and Ready to Get Back to Me! - Nashville, TN

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

Breast Implant Removal on Oct 11th, No Lift at This Time.

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

Hi, I am a 45 yrs young woman, I had my first sets of implants when I was 25 and then when I was 37 i was told that my implants were broken (which I have my suspicions they weren't) and the surgeon didn't hear what I said and put more CC than I asked for.

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.

11 Yr Old Implants Being Removed; Cc & Rotation. Winnipeg, MB

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

I got a breast augmentation on May 16 2015. Before the implants, I was a size 30C.

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.

I wrote a review on my breast implants and the reasons I wanted them removed, but I would also like to start a review here as well because I'm looking for support and advice about explant.

14 Year Implants, 2 kids, CC on left

My story begins like everybody else's......young, impulsive, and thought breasts were important to "feel normal". I had adorable little double A's and at age 20 underwent BA with 360 saline on top. I actually liked them for about 7 years, then they started to be cumbersome. I got pregnant with... READ MORE

Explant on 5th October: 17 years of subglandular plus 5 months of submuscular.

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...
