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 have an appointment on the 24th August, to discuss a possible rupture of my implant on my left side. I am a very active person, so when my left side under my arm pit started stinging a couple of months ago, I assumed I had just pulled something doing pole. But it comes and goes so I've made a...

Hi everyone, I'm 29 years old and a mother of two. I have 10 year old saline implants 275 cc and was a small c cup before the implants, I am now a dd. I have quite poor elasticity as it is I have stretch marks on my breasts and lower tummy. My surgeon advised it probably won't be pretty so I am... READ MORE

I'm wanting to remove my four year old 425cc mentor silicon implants. I got them at the age 24, right after having lost a pregnancy at five months justation. My BF at the time (not anymore) was heavily judgmental of my decrease in breast volume after losing the baby. Being over emotional and... READ MORE

Hi. I have been wondering whether to share my story for some weeks now. I am 6 days post explant & for some reason, today, I decided to let you know my journey & experience so far. Well, I had 330cc implants over the muscle when I was 35, having just finished breast feeding my second... READ MORE

My journey has been long & emotional. I started out with implants when I was 21 & got what I did not want. I asked for a big C, small D & came out with over an F!! I didn't want to be as lopsided (almost a full cup difference on each side) but came out just as lopsided. I've had 5... READ MORE

My story is a long one and filled with complications and heartache. I got implants when I was 26 after the birth of my second child. I was flatter than flat, I know that is hard for most women to understand or grasp, but it is true. Completely flat, no tissue and nipples that were a flap of... READ MORE

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

I'm so happy I stumbled upon this site! I've been wanting my implants out for a couple of years now and you ladies have given my a lot of inspiration and courage to do it! I got my 320cc under-the-muscle implants 13 years ago, along with a breast lift at the same time. I had breast fed 3... 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 have had a total of four surgeries, The first was done in 1998 /Saline.. lol, I guess you could say they were the "training wheels" of implants, so to speak. Just a year after that I suffered from severe capsular contracture, That I had to live with untill 2003. I another surgery with the... READ 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

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
