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 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...

So I guess you can say my story started 9 years ago. I was 25 years old and had been thinking for a long time that I wanted to get my breasts "fixed" as I had very saggy c-cup boobs. After MUCH contemplating I decided to go and see a plastic surgeon to see what could be done about them. I was... READ MORE

So, I've been reading posts and decided it's time for the consult. I am hoping to go natural and I know I will need a lift. It was 1984 when I first augmented under breast in San Diego. The surgeon decided I needed large 450cc. I was shocked at the size of the bandages afterwards, considering I... READ MORE

I am 59 seeking implant explant. No children. Implants appx 25 yrs old silicone gel. I've had 2 consultations and I am returning to both surgeons. I am in need of reassurance because the surgeon I want to go with does not use drains. I haven't asked how many of his patients return because of... READ MORE

I am so thankful for this site. I am having issues with my left implant. I have some pain that gets really bad during PMS, then subsides a bit. I'm just not feeling comfortable with these anymore. I chose to get them after nursing my first 2 babies, my full B, small C breasts totally deflated to... READ MORE

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

In March 2012 at 24 years old I made the decision to get breast implants. I had always had very small breasts, I couldn't even fill a bra. So I wasn't even an a-cup. Though, I liked my breasts this always bothered me. When the idea occurred to me that I could get implants there was no stopping... READ MORE

Hi I have had my implants in for about 11 yrs now, for the last few yrs I have hated them! They feel heavy and make me look bigger than I accually am. I had them done just to fill them up a bit after breast feeding , I was happy with my B cup but they were a bit saggy, wish I had uplift then... READ MORE

PAST After two pregnancies and breastfeeding my perky B cup breasts were flat and saggy. I could not get a bra to fit me. After years of frustration I felt my only option was breast implants to fill out my breasts and fill a bra. In 2002 I had 425cc silicone implants put in over my muscle. I... READ MORE

I have found this website both informative and encouraging and it has reinforced my own decision... READ MORE

When I got my saline implants (2002), they were fantastic—I went from full A/small B cup to a FULL C/small D cup. I was very happy with my results. Since then, I have gained a little bit of weight and now my breast seem huge to me. My bra size is a 32DDD. They still look OK though….but why... READ MORE

Dr Urzola did my en bloc explant, lift and fat transfer. He is a true artist! Not only does he care about each patient getting their perfect results, he also cares about each person individually. He is an honest, compassionate and talented surgeon who is an expert at what he does. Going out of... READ MORE

Hi there girls. I think that after one year looking through this website trying to find help and advice, It has arrived the moment to say a huge THANKS to you all and to write my history.

I got a breast augmentation on May 16 2015. Before the implants, I was a size 30C. I had a decent amount of breast tissue and never really considered myself to have "small" boobs...although people would sometimes tell me they were small I always viewed them as the medium/small side. I had always... READ MORE

Since so many countless women on this site have helped me arrive at my decision to explant, I really felt inspired to share my story to hopefully help others. So, here is my story. Prior to implants, I was a working mother with three kids leading a super active life. Other than a mild case of... READ MORE

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. Long story short, I had BA after stopping birth control pills because of melasma. My breasts lost several... READ MORE

Just had my consultation today! For an explant & lift. I got mentor Saline Implants at 22, but now that I'm older I'm just tired of them and want them out. I'm more concerned with being healthy and fit.. they are 350cc & 375cc overfilled. Procedure is estimated at $6200 for removal... READ MORE

First, thanks to all who have come before me. Like others, I have been behind-the-scenes reading your stories of inspiration. I, too, am ready to get out of the booby trap. I knew at some point I'm was going to need replacements, and I have decided to remove them rather than replace them. ... READ MORE
