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.

Hello ladies! Here comes my story! After breastfeeding my 2 wonderful children my breast looked sorry... It didn't bother me as much as it did my husband at this time. I don't know how I let him talk me into this but I ended up getting fake boobs. I agreed on 375cc but somehow during the... READ MORE

I had my 350ml saline subpectoral implants removed after 8 years. They were heavy and too large for my 5'3" 115lb small frame. After years of chronic neck and back pain, frequent trips to the chiropractor and looking dowdy and top heavy I decided it was time for them to go. I was fortunate... READ MORE

I wanted to have these breast implants out for a while and finally had the nerve to go through with it. They ere hard as rocks and started getting a little deformed. I talked to my husband, who has only seen me with the size 32D breast and needed to have him on board with this. He was totally... READ MORE

Hi I've had my breast implants since 2005. I have 345cc left and 365cc right. My implants are under the muscle. First of all I would like to say this site is wonderful!!! My journey has been rough. I've regretted having my implants since day 1. I didn't realize that they could change your life... READ MORE

I have to start this off by saying that I loved my implants. They looked amazing! They were under sub-muscular (300 cc) and looked/ felt real! I got them at 31 years of age because I'd always wanted bigger boobs and had enough money in the bank to pay in full. I went to a surgeon in Austin, TX... READ MORE

Oy, what a mental process this has become! Let's start from the beginning... At 23, I decided I was ready to get a BA. I found a doctor that I liked and trusted and scheduled my BA. What drew me to him was that he was a pioneer and very proficient in using the TUBA incision. I had a great... 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 got implants as an insecure 25 year old. To be honest I did love them but as I grew older my paranoia about having these things in my body increased, especially as I discovered I had been given the PIP implants (later replaced). I am planning on having kids in the near future and couldn't... READ MORE

After 15 years, I am ready to have itty bitty boobies again! I was small-average pre-kids (34B), but after nursing 3 kids I went to a 34 A, nearly AA. Nothing. Nada. So I wanted boobs again, like I had had when I was lactating (up to 34C+). I went with an out-of-town doctor who did... READ MORE

I am writing this review to receive support and give support to us deserving, strong women who have been through hell with our plastic surgery choices. My story is somewhat long and complicated but to shorten it up, I am 51 yrs old. At 50 I had my first BA with 500 cc Saline under the muscle. ... READ MORE

Hi there. I have been so thankful for this site as it has really helped me to come to terms with the decision I have had to make. Well it was made for me really. At 33 I made the decision to have a BA . Before children I never really had large breasts probably a 34B but I was happy with myself... READ MORE

I finally got the courage to schedule my procedure to remove my breast implants, no lift. I have wanted to remove them for a while but was scared of how they're going to look afterwards. Going through so many pictures on this forum and I am impressed with the pictures I am seeing. My PS tried to... READ MORE

Where to start... I've always been more of a listener then a talker, I am quite guarded when it comes to sharing about myself. I never wanted to be defined by having implants, so no one knows except for my sweet husband and a couple of close friends. i wanted to look natural, and not be big. I'm... READ MORE

The past 4 years symptoms have gotten worse it has been hard with joint and muscle pain, fatigue, bladder issues, food sensitives, dry eyes, dry mouth, cold hands, cold feet etc. i had to...

Hello everyone! I am in the process of having my 3 year old silicone high profile implants removed. They are in a subglandular position. In December I started to be able to feel a piece of my implant poking through my tissue very close underneath my skin. At first it just felt like a bubble and... READ MORE

In mai 2009 at age 18 I did a breast argumentation. Now at 24 years old I am ready to be me again! I hope the pain will be gone and my sensation will return in my breasts over time after the explanation. They look a bit sad and saggy now, hopefully they will fluff back over time. Have been in...

For as long as I can remember I wanted big boobs. I wanted them before I even developed. I can only blame Barbie for this! I grew up being thin with small boobs. I was teased some with the old “mosquito bites” & “ant-hill” comments, but most kids left me alone because I fought back. I put on ... READ MORE

I've recently lost 60 pounds and finally feel like I can wear most clothing without feeling self conscious. In losing that weight I was left with stretched out skin on my stomach that won't go away. I had breast implants about 12 years ago and never was really happy with the size...too big. I... READ MORE

So my surgery date is coming up soon and I'm getting really nervous. When I was 19 years old I had no fear. Now that I'm older I feel much more afraid of things. I know I can get through it, it's just nerve wracking at first. I have saline Implants at the moment and I believe I'm a D, but... READ MORE

In 1996, less than a year after the birth of my 4th child, and months before my impending divorce, (it was an eventful year! ) I had breast augmentation surgery with Saline Implants placed beneath my pectoral muscles. At the time my breasts greatly resembled acorn squash, and were closer to... READ MORE
