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 >

I haven't had any health issues but have never been thrilled with them because the left one has always felt encapsulated and I lost most of the feeling on both sides after surgery which has been difficult to deal with. I'm not sure why I ever... READ MORE

I have scheduled a consultation on January 18th to have my breast implants removed. I had them placed when I was 22 years old and very self-conscious of my small breasts (barely an A cup).
