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 >

The contrast between my previous UIK-based surgeon who originally put my implants in and Dr Horndeski was marked. Everything in Houston was planned and carefully worked out. In the pre-op room,...

Late 30s, Single Mom - Salt Lake City, UT

I had 3 breast augmentations in my 20s. In 2005, I decided to remove my last BA & it was horrible. My Dr. Also did a lift which I think has something to do with the pain, due to where the lift was, I now have servere scar tissue. It feels like my skin is constantly pulling. As you can see my...

21 Years Old, Implant Removal After 3 Years

Almost three years ago I thought it was a good idea to get a breast augmentation. I liked them for the first few months, just because I had always wanted big boobs and was convinced that in order to be a "real" woman I would have to fit into societies over-sexualized standards. Which was very... READ MORE

49 Yr Old with 25 Yr Old Silicone Implants - Los Angeles, CA

I decided to remove my implants after injuring my shoulder. The 25 year old implants were heavy and saggy.
