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 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

When I was a young teenager, I remember my friends beginning to go training bra shopping with their parents and I remember being so jealous that I couldn’t because I wasn’t growing boobies yet. I waited impatiently for them but they never did grow past a 32AA. Basically I just had swollen nip... READ MORE

I had my first breast augmentation in 2006 with 300cc silicone implants placed below the muscle by Dr. Brad Jacobs. I was a 32B to begin with and the augmentation brought me up to a 32D. Almost immediately after the surgery, I began to develop capsular contracture on the right side which... READ MORE

I've hated my implants since I got them in 2009. I just finished nursing my son and my Boobs were flap jacks...and I didn't really think much about getting them.

OK here is my implant story!! In 1990 I decided that after wanting bigger breasts for what seemed like an eternity I would finally do it. I chose a surgeon in Utah (I am from NY) that had an excellent reputation and whose work I had seen on a few friends. He had his own surgi-center and the... READ MORE
