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 got my first surgery on March 2015 600 CCs . I felt remorseful about two weeks later , feeling like I should have never inserted a foreign object into my body . Shorty after I noticed one of my breast was not softening up. Turned out I had CApsular contractor on my right breast . Had a full... READ MORE

3 months after getting my implants, I started having joint pain. Over the past three years, the pain grew worse and moved to my feet, hands, knees, wrists and shoulders. I was tested for RA three times and was told I didn't have it. It was not fibroid myalgia, lupus or arthritis. I also... READ MORE

Hello! I am new to this forum and have loved reading all the breast explant stories. Thank you for sharing... it's really helping me in my journey. I'm 47 and had saline implants put in under the muscle when I was 29 years old. I went from a 32 AA to 32 full C. Unlike some of the posts... READ MORE

I am 51 year old mother of 3 kids. I had 400 cc implants put in 15 months ago. They were 400 cc moderate profile implants. About a month after I had them , I had regrets. I knew feeling may be a common experience and decided to wait at least 6 months to see if I liked them. I was a small c or... READ MORE

And so the journey begins. I have gained so much from reading the reviews on this site, it would be unfair not to return the favor. Twenty one years ago, when I was very young and underweight (5'6" and 105lbs) I decided that I simply had to have breast implants. If I had only listened to my... READ MORE

Terrifyed of what my results will look like also because i'm a smoker and i'm not sure if my skin is... 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 my implants when I was 23 which seems a very common age on here. I was so excited as I measured a 32A, I couldn't wait to fill a c cup finally and feel confident in my own skin. The implants served me well and I had no issues for years, I would even forget that they were not an original... READ MORE

Ok so here's my story. Like many others, I am passing it along so hopefully it will help others as others' has helped me. I will give the condensed version. When I was young, I was stupid and insecure, so I got implants. Now that I"m all grown up (physically), I want them out. I'm insecure... READ MORE

The doctor was one of the best but I found that at the end of the day implants were not for me. It's difficult to describe this feeling until they are inside you.. They just didn't feel natural. I am jus.t glad that the staff was very nice and understanding of my feelings. If ever I needed... READ MORE

Had I a time machine... I bet we have all experienced that at some time regarding something or another, mine in regards to playing into the hand of bullies. Teasing and an awful unfaithful first marriage mate that said hurtful things, which left me feeling like I'd never offer another man a... READ MORE

For as long as I can remember I wanted big boobs. I wanted them before I even developed. I can only blame Barbie for this! I grew up being thin with small boobs. I was teased some with the old “mosquito bites” & “ant-hill” comments, but most kids left me alone because I fought back. I put on ... READ MORE
