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 had a breast augmentation revision 4 weeks ago in London after 17 years of implants from the age of 23. I don't know what my bra size was before the implants, I didn't need a bra, but you can see in my pictures from the first pre-op surgery. My current surgeon says I was an A cup. I had 270cc...

I am 5'6", 124 lbs. and 39 years old. The breast implants and lift came after my kids. I did have As before nursing and they settled around droopy Bs. The implants brought me to large Cs. They never settled properly, the areola stretched out and the right side has ruptured. So ready to rid of these. READ MORE

Hello! I am new to this forum and have loved reading all the breast explant stories. Thank you for sharing... it's really helping me in my journey. I'm 47 and had saline implants put in under the muscle when I was 29 years old. I went from a 32 AA to 32 full C. Unlike some of the posts... READ MORE

QUESTION! Have any of you brave women that have had your implants removed because of health reasons.. Experienced a better quality of life since getting them out? Any less pain? I had a fantastic chest in high school. After my first was born, I was ruined. My left breast hung down a full inch... READ MORE

So i had my BA 7 weeks ago and I'm already pretty sure I want to explant very soon. The reasons for this is many but the main reason is that I hate my results. My PS lowered my folds about 4 cm (i think), and it was way too much! I look really bad right now. Other reasons are: implants are too... READ MORE

Hello everyone at Real Self and thank you for all your pictures/support. Surgery schedule for 5/6/16. At this time I am very nervous so let me begin my story. At the age of 28 I had my first BA of saline implants under the muscle. I went from AA/A to a full B cup with 250cc. At first I took... READ MORE

I am getting my breast implants removed today actually in about 4 hours and these posts are very helpful. I am so curious to see after 17 years with implants what my natural boobs will look like. I need to heal as you can see in the pictures, then I am having them put back in , in about 5 months... READ MORE

Today is Thursday 5th May and in 18 days I will be having my 12 year old PIP ruptured implants removed. The silicone has emigrated to my under arm lymph nodes now because I cancelled surgery 2 years ago to remove my intact PIP implants. I put my love of having breasts over my health - crazy,...

Just a quick share don't feel like writing a life story. I had saline plants placed about 7 years ago 420cc under muscle through a periaerola incision with a lift. Didn't need any of it I just like how my breasts looked after having a baby. I was about a 36B before and am about a 34D now.... READ MORE

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 was conflicted with the way they would look, but now I don't care with aesthetic as much as I want my health back. I got my implants right out of high school, because I felt... READ MORE

Hello everyone! Thank god for this site as I move forward with my procedure! I never had issues w my saline under the muscle implants. What I did have was a 30 lb weight gain which rendered me huge and matronly looking. Even though I had a lift initially, after my recent 27. Lb loss, my breasts... 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

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

After 12 months of research and working out if I wanted new implants, no implants or back to my natural self I went under the knife on the 4 July 16. I has now been 1 week later and I could not have been happier. So the reason why I wanted my implants out - Approximately 13 years ago after... READ MORE

I've been following the journeys of so many courageous women on this sight for more than a year now, and I've been wanting to remove my implants for even longer. It's nice to see and read stories just like mine. I found a great PS who told me about deflating in the office first and I was... READ MORE

I had silicone implants under the muscle placed in 2007. They look great but they were never really me. Like so many of you, I went from insecure about my small breasts to insecure about my large breasts. Fast forward a few years and this decision from years ago no longer makes sense. My... READ MORE

So my story - I was 18 years old and insecure with one breast slightly larger than the other (probably not more than one size difference) Left A and Right B., and realised later in life that this is very common. But as a naive teenager, paralysed by fear, it felt like the end of the world. So... READ MORE

Seven years ago i decided to get a breast lift. I went to a reputable park avenue surgeon in nyc. He told me that if i get implants w the lift it will be a sexier look. I never liked the implant look but i decided to go for it. I was curious i guess??? I got 200cc silicone implants partially... READ MORE
