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'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 have decided to write my story after thinking about it for a long time. I guess I haven’t done it yet mainly, let’s be honest, because I am a bit embarrassed. But everyone here has helped me so much, that the least I can do is try to pay it forward. My first language is not English, sorry if ... READ MORE

Gained my breast implants in 2005. And I loved them for a long time. A couple of years ago I began to experience some health problems. Irritated bowel syndrome, joint pains, serious night sweats, dizziness, fatigue, and so on. I love to run, but more and more I felt after a run, like I was... READ MORE

I had my implants put in when I was 30 - I guess insecurity played a big part looking back. I was a 36 AA (and wanted to be a full C) but ended up a DD..! I absolutely loved them at first, but the novelty of having them wore off after a year or two, and have been pretty much sick ever since with... READ MORE

My biggest wish ever was it to have big boobs - I tought big boobs give me self-confidence, attention, love and a lucky life. I tought you... READ MORE

First implants were way to big. My friends said if you're going to get them, get at least a C. My Dr only wanted to do a B and I should have listened. I was tiny, 5' 85 lbs. 20 years old and a 32a at the time. So, November 1993, I got saline Mentor 300cc and immediately hated them. All anyone... READ MORE

Ok so i'll try to keep it brief...i was an A cup for 36 years however i was a 38 A which is kind of a weird size, right? hard size to find, seems most bras are more like a 38D!? anyway, i was always unhappy with my small breasts, even after having 3 children in my early 20's they really didn't...

Hello I have been inspired by many of you to finally take the plunge and have my 17 year old breast implants removed. I got my breast implants the second I turned 18 years old. In high school it was always the idea I had in my head; that when I turned 18, I was going to do it. The courage to go... READ MORE

Hi! Well I am excited to report that after 9 yrs I am finally removing my silicone under the muscle implants. I first had implants put in during my last year of college, I chose saline implants through the underarm area that took me from about a 34 b to a 34 c bra size. I was very happy with... 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 Surgery is next week and i'm super nervous! I've had my implants for about 2 1/2 years I have saline implants under the muscle and I'm ready to have them removed! I'm 5'8 132 and I have rippling and chest pains and I'm just ready to go back to being myself. Hopefully that my boobs will look... 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

Hello again RS people!! I was on here last Aug for tummy tuck, never knowing I would be back with ruptured saline breast implants, one to be exact. The first pair was put in in 1988, both ruptured in 95, replaced. Now my right side ruptured and my PS suggested removal with lift. So here I am!! I... READ MORE

I am 56 year old. No Kids and Single. I got BA when I was 29 after a divorce. I didn't spend a lot of time thinking about it. Kindof a quick decision, but this was before the internet so there was no way to research it. Before BA I was a 34AA. I wanted to be a cute little B cup. I woke up... READ MORE

Above and beyond my expectations!...I have highly recommended my friends to Dr Hubbard and I continue to be happy with my results a year later! Dr Hubbard answered every question and handled all of my worries...he was able to help me with my asymmetry and scar tissue from prior procedure. The... READ MORE

I want to say thank you to all those women who have bravely told their stories here, because of you I am now moving toward the goal of removing the implants in my body. Several weeks ago, not feeling well I went on my support group forum and saw a posting where a women who had breast implant... READ MORE

I first got silicone breast implants in 1980. I was 23 years old, & very thin, with an A cup, which only plumped up a little once a month, before my periods. I went to a surgeon, & arranged for McGhan silicone implants to bring me up to a B cup. To save money (infamous last words), I chose a... READ MORE

Three and a half years ago I decided to get implants. I started with 350cc under the muscle and due to a complication, had a second surgery 11 months later, replacing with 435cc. I am considering removing my implants due to potential complications and financial costs down the road. At the... READ MORE

This is a long complicated story. Many medical wrong turns. 2005 I was 45 and had a breast reduction surgery with anchor cuts. I was appox 115 pounds five foot five, and proper bra size 32E. I wanted a reduction but that year I got very tired, neck pain, jaw pain and chest pain. All symtoms that... READ MORE
