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.

Oy, what a mental process this has become! Let's start from the beginning... At 23, I decided I was ready to get a BA. I found a doctor that I liked and trusted and scheduled my BA. What drew me to him was that he was a pioneer and very proficient in using the TUBA incision. I had a great... READ MORE

Well, after lurking for a couple years, I've finally decided it's time! I've gone for my consultation with Dr. Doezie and decided we are the perfect fit. I'm going to pop in to the office on March 31st, have my implants removed, and head back home. That easy. He will do it under local, make a... READ MORE

After two children, my 34b boobies looked sad. Living in Dallas at the time (where everything is BIG) decided to get implants. I told my Dr "I want big" and big he did. Almost 600cc's! For my 5'4" frame, 130lb at the time, were WAY TOO BIG for my body. I have been so self conscious of these... READ MORE

Hello, everybody! This seems like a great community and I'm really happy to be able to finally make a post about my upcoming surgery. I got saline implants when I was 18 years old. I'd been struggling with my asymmetrical breasts since I developed. My asymmetry was caused by my concave chest... READ MORE

Hi! I had implants put in 11 yrs ago after giving birth my second time. I've always been large chested and I've battled weight issues most of my adult life. I'm comfortable now at a size 14 pants, but I have to wear a 1X top. I would be thrilled for a L after I'm done with everything. My... READ MORE

I had my 350ml saline subpectoral implants removed after 8 years. They were heavy and too large for my 5'3" 115lb small frame. After years of chronic neck and back pain, frequent trips to the chiropractor and looking dowdy and top heavy I decided it was time for them to go. I was fortunate... READ MORE

About 18 years ago, I was in an unhealthy relationship and state of mind. I grew up with low self-esteem due to family dynamics, and was with someone who objectified every woman he saw. I was very insecure. I made the decision to get implants, bringing me from a 36B-C to a 36DD. While I had a... READ MORE

My profile picture is of myself, 15 years ago, prior to making the huge mistake of having breast implants. I was a small A. Always liked my breasts, but wished they were bigger. Was totally unaware of all the risks and the major trauma to the body/ pectoral muscles and thought it would be a... READ MORE

I had saline, over the muscle, breast implants 25 years ago. Infant say I've ever felt very comfortable with them. I decided I wanted to have them removed. My breasts seemed to have a mind of their own and went from an implant of 34D to DD in those years. I was very anxious as I've never had... READ MORE
