WORTH IT RATING 1,314 reviews over 24 months

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 wanted to begin my blog journey, as a way to show sisterhood to all women out there. My upcoming first entry will be about me and how I ended up with breast implants. I will then follow with the ordeal of years of me wanting them out, and then I will tell you about my appointment today with... READ MORE

Review of Dr. Pousti, La Mesa office. I am a 43-year-old mother of two. My surgery was to remove silicone implants. The implants were 360 cc each side. Silicone, they were implanted in 2005. A little background. I had small breasts all my life and from a young age I wanted to have larger... READ MORE

Where to begin?! My breasts have always been uneven in size as well as areola size. I would say the left breast started out as an A and the right breast a small B. In 2004 when I was 18 I went ahead and had a BA. I still have the same implants (Mentor Saline Implants. Right implant size 400 cc;... READ MORE

So after reading so many reviews on this website, which have helped me in my journey to explant, I thought it was only fair to share my story too. I got my implants, 450cc hp mentor over the muscle in October 2014, so just over a year ago. Ever since I can remember, I was always self concious... READ MORE

In March 2012 at 24 years old I made the decision to get breast implants. I had always had very small breasts, I couldn't even fill a bra. So I wasn't even an a-cup. Though, I liked my breasts this always bothered me. When the idea occurred to me that I could get implants there was no stopping... READ MORE

In 2007, I went to dinner with my girlfriends (all in our mid-20's) and out of the 5 of us, I was the only one that did not have breast implants.  I never really had self-esteem issues and had no problems getting dates or guys but the seed was planted after seeing how perfect my friend's boobs...

Thought I'd pay this forward as others before me who have posted here, especially with photos, have been so helpful as to what I might expect. I got my implants, under muscle, saline with silicon shell, in 1996. I was single at the time and thought I'd do this "just for me". I was an A cup at... READ MORE

Although this is going to be hard for me to put into writing (since I really don't want to believe this is my reality,) I've decided that it's my time to contribute to realself as it has been my main source of information and comfort throughout my breast implant journey. So, here it goes...I got... READ MORE

First off, I have wanted this done for so long. I can't believe it is actually about to happen. I was 20 years old when I decided to get implants (during the height of Pam Anderson, Carmen Elektra, lol big boob generation). Needless to say being a fit, energetic, small 34B female wasn't good...

Good day, like many other stories begin, "I found this site looking for support" Yes, me too. I have held in any emotion about my breast surgery from the late 90's to my shame, pain and misery I have carried up to this day. When I did the breast augmentation, I told one friend. Mostly because... READ MORE

I was extremely lopsided in my breasts as I developed and remember having a DD on the right and barely a B on the left. Insurance covered a Breast implant surgery in 1998 to try and match up my breasts. Over the years my natural right breast has gotten even bigger and heavier (now a FF Cup).... READ MORE

I just discovered this site last week. I'm just starting the process of researching and finding a surgeon for explant surgery. I have saline implants placed under the muscle. I don't have a copy of my surgical notes yet so have no details. After a divorce in 2000 I wanted to feel attractive... READ MORE

I have 450cc silicone implants under the muscle. I had lost some weight and wanted to fill out my breasts more, and told the surgeon I wanted to go from a B cup to a D cup. I had used rice sizers and was thinking maybe 300cc, but when I went in for my consult the assistant told me that she had... READ MORE

Pre BA my left breast was 10A & right breast 10B. Even with different sized implants it was still very hard to achieve even sized breasts due to my muscle & nipple positioning. I have Silicone implants (250cc & 275cc) under the muscle. After discovering (from an MRI) that I have a ruptured... READ MORE

The decision has been made. I am going to have my implants removed after 42 years. They have served me well but it is time to say so long to my unnatural, hard, playboy boobs. Am I ready for this change? I sure hope so because the appointment has been made for October 28. Maybe I can dress... READ MORE

I had saline implants done 10 years ago and they were much larger than expected. After 10 years I started having some pain and decided to remove and lift. The surgeon took the jp drains out after 2 days. Several days later my right breast started draining and swelling. I have since had two more... READ MORE

I have suffered with unexplained medical conditions for at least 6-7 years. The list includes: muscle aches/weakness, fatigue, hair loss, loss of libido, non-production of female hormones, headaches, anxiety attacks, heart palpitations, night sweats, hot skin, recurrent yeast infections, puffy...

Hi ladies, I had my 23 year old silicone implants (placed over the muscle) removed en bloc five years ago. With Baker 4 on the left, (Baker 2 on the right) it felt like someone was constantly squeezing my breast. I began experiencing extreme fatigue, joint pain, and tingling/numbness in my... 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
