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.

Hi ladies, I am so thankful for this site and everyone's story. I got my saline implants under the muscle 12 years ago, I think they are 280cc that took me from a 32AA to a 34C. I am pear shaped so the implants balance out my figure. I wasn't aware of my flat chest until my first husband began... READ MORE

Hello, everybody! This seems like a great community and I'm really happy to be able to finally make a post about my upcoming surgery. I got saline implants when I was 18 years old. I'd been struggling with my asymmetrical breasts since I developed. My asymmetry was caused by my concave chest... READ MORE

First off thank you to all the ladies that have posted about their experiences with explanting and the health concerns that came with having implants. After many years of suffering from neck, back, shoulder joint pain, and mimic'ed autoimmune disease, I was at a loss. I went to several doctors... READ MORE

My original post has been removed as Dr. Fengs office threatened to sue me if it was not changed. Her office manager, Linda called me and verbally attacked me and told me that I would be “taken down” by their attorney if I didn’t change my original post to fit their requirements. I have never...

Had I a time machine... I bet we have all experienced that at some time regarding something or another, mine in regards to playing into the hand of bullies. Teasing and an awful unfaithful first marriage mate that said hurtful things, which left me feeling like I'd never offer another man a... READ MORE

I'd like to have my implants removed for several reasons. Even though I've never had any problems nor am I now, I am very uncomfortable with the size. Prior to implants I was a full B cup. After BA I was a D. But I've gradually gotten bigger. I'm now a DDD. I'm only 5'3" and weigh about 144 lbs.... READ MORE

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

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.
