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.

I am beyond excited about my consult for explant in a couple of weeks. I have had these 450+ cc boobs since my early 20s. They never looked right on me. I have been hiding them and covering them up for years. Clothes don't fit properly. The implants hurt when I sleep. They are under the muscle.... READ MORE

Tomorrow is the big day!! After 7 years I am tired of these heavy things. I am a bit nervous of how they are going to look after but I am tired of feeling so heavy & bigger than I really am. No matter how much I workout the breasts do not shrink. Haha. I have been wanting this explant for a... READ MORE

Hello to you all out there, My story is a bit of a strange one, but I am writing it in the hope that someone out there can help or has been down this road too. Sorry if it is a bit long winded :-) Bit of history: About me... I am 40 yrs old i have 4 wonderful children, 2 grandchildren, happily... READ MORE

My initial BA was strongly influenced by people in my close environment. Some had undergone the procedure and I was "promised" a BA from a young age. If they wouldn't develop more by the time I was 18 I could always get one. It was not the wisest strategy but well intentioned. Once I made the... READ MORE

I'm 48 hours post removal under local and feel AWESOME!! Here's my story... In 2003 when I was 35, I had 350cc saline implants placed under the muscle. I was previously a 34B and was quite fit & svelte. At the time I thought implants would somehow make me feel better about myself. They were... READ MORE

I have been reading the reviews for a year now - learning, researching and interviewing PS's. I appreciate the time all of the participants on this site have taken to document and share their experiences. It truly gave me a direction and managed my expectations. I am turing 50, and have had my... READ MORE

Hello all I have been following the stories of lots of ladies on here and it my turn on Tuesday and I am utterly terrified about the outcome as the time gets closer. Am trying to be positive but have seen some scary results albeit on here. I know we are all different but my surgeon is very... READ MORE

August of 2013 I had Sentra implants put in under the muscle, 350cc in the right and 380cc in the left. They looked great. But were very stiff and uncomfortable. I could not lay on my stomach at night or really even on my side with out shoving a pillow between the girls. When I worked out I felt... READ MORE

Hello everyone, I figured that I have been commenting and asking questions to all the explant girls -that maybe I should write about myself and include photos. Going to try and make short. First BA - 2001 - 34 yo after 2 children....350 cc silicone over the muscle...always felt too big in... READ MORE

I was extremely lopsided in my breasts as I developed and remember having a DD on the right and barely a B on the left. Insurance covered a Breast implant surgery in 1998 to try and match up my breasts. Over the years my natural right breast has gotten even bigger and heavier (now a FF Cup).... 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

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

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 am 56 year old. No Kids and Single. I got BA when I was 29 after a divorce. I didn't spend a lot of time thinking about it. Kindof a quick decision, but this was before the internet so there was no way to research it. Before BA I was a 34AA. I wanted to be a cute little B cup. I woke up... READ MORE

I had my first child at 18 years of age and 2 more by the time I was 21. After breast feeding my son, I found that my breast tissue was just MIA! Missing altogether. All that seemed to be left was the skin. Only 18 years old and I felt that my breasts looked 40 years older, like 2 fried eggs... READ MORE

I am so scared and so worried about the results. I have a history of body dysmorphic disorder and I am SO worried that I will find myself in square one again. My explant is scheduled for tomorrow and I'm not going to remove the capsule even though I have a mild CC in my right breast. I am... READ MORE

I have read so many reviews on here and they have helped me so much so am adding my own to be able to give something back. Nearly 8 years ago I had 340cc cohesive gel implants placed under the muscle at The Hospital Group. I was a very tiny 30A, had always been totally flat chested and had... READ MORE

First of all thank you to all the ladies out there who have been explaining their experience out there on their implant removal process.
