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 my first child at 18 years of age and 2 more by the time I was 21. After breast feeding my son, I found that my breast tissue was just MIA! Missing altogether. All that seemed to be left was the skin. Only 18 years old and I felt that my breasts looked 40 years older, like 2 fried eggs... READ MORE

I am so scared and so worried about the results. I have a history of body dysmorphic disorder and I am SO worried that I will find myself in square one again. My explant is scheduled for tomorrow and I'm not going to remove the capsule even though I have a mild CC in my right breast. I am... READ MORE

I have read so many reviews on here and they have helped me so much so am adding my own to be able to give something back. Nearly 8 years ago I had 340cc cohesive gel implants placed under the muscle at The Hospital Group. I was a very tiny 30A, had always been totally flat chested and had... READ MORE

First of all thank you to all the ladies out there who have been explaining their experience out there on their implant removal process. I have been reading all of your experiences and feeling all sorts of emotions, excited, nervous, scared, fearful, and hopeful. I think you have been going... READ MORE

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

Hello everyone! I am in the process of having my 3 year old silicone high profile implants removed. They are in a subglandular position.
