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 >

14 Year Implants, 2 kids, CC on left

My story begins like everybody else's......young, impulsive, and thought breasts were important to "feel normal". I had adorable little double A's and at age 20 underwent BA with 360 saline on top. I actually liked them for about 7 years, then they started to be cumbersome. I got pregnant with... READ MORE

43 Years Old with Asymmetry Pre Ba, 13 Year Old Silicone Implants Coming out Next Week!

I feel like I want to pipe in because of my asymmetry. I wish there were more reviews about that. I was an "aa" (left) and a "b" tubular (right) before, and after failing with Brava I decided to get a BA with a lift on one side. I only wanted to be a large B or small C but at the last minute I...

A review for us senior citizens

I finally was approved by my HMO insurer for the explant surgery. When I met with my Dr., he explained that he couldn't do a lift with the same procedure and that whatever fat I had might be removed with the surgery. I din't like his assessment so I looked for other physicians. I was referred to... READ MORE

45 Years Old and Free from 17year Silicone Prison

Well, where to start! Had silicone overs put in in 1998. Loved them to start with but noticed them get 'firm' after only six weeks.

I've been wanting to remove my implants for a time, but I was unsure if I wanted to replace them or just remove them.

I got my implants in 2000 when I was a fitness trainer and extremely low bodyfat (10%).
