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 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

My surgery is tomorrow and I'm hoping this is the right decision for my health. I want to be implant free because I'm a mom and want to be a good role model for my daughter. I want to show her how to be comfortable with what you are given. I'm also athletic and these globes cramp my style!;-)... READ MORE

I've had Saline Implants, Under the muscle for 8 years. I used to be extremely active & compete in fitness. But, For the past year & 5 months I haven't been able to do much due to back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, chest tightness, hip pain, and shortness of breath. I want my implants... READ MORE

I decided to have them removed because I was having extreme difficulty breathing, along with many other unexplained symptoms, such as changes in vision (brown spots in retina as well), tingling hands, joint pain, extreme thirst, fatigue, cold hands and fingers (turned whitish), headaches,...

Like most of you explanting, I just wanted them out because they didn't fit the rest of me. I'm about 6 months post op and still a little numb on the back of my arms. The nerve pain was unreal. Glad to be flat chested again. I think I look better in clothes and don't miss big boobs one... READ MORE

I was always a very small person, late bloomer and always wished that I had more on my chest than I was given (32A/B) I had 2 children in my late 20's, early 30's and enjoyed the increase in bust size during pregnancy (34D) only to have them go down to 34AA after finishing nursing my second...

Was 34AA prior to BA carried out almost 20 years ago. I was told I would be a large B, small C cup which was just fine with me. They ended up being 34D or 34DD depending on the bra. I was disappointed and have always felt they were too large. I tried to have an explant 5 years ago but the PS at... READ MORE

First of all I want to say thank you to everyone who has shared their experiences on this site-it has helped me tremendously in moving forward with my decision to remove my implants. I would not have had the knowledge or the strength to do it without all of you sharing your stories. I had... READ MORE

Hello ladies of "The Real Self Team"... I am writing this blog to tell my story of my explant (breast implant removal)... I was skeptical at first because I was ashamed and embarrassed that I had actually gotten breast implants only to want them out just as fast.. However, after listening to the... READ MORE

I have had 500 cc implants since 1994. I am a 38 DDD, i hate having such huge boobs that hang down to my knees lol. I plan to get a lift when I have huge bags removed. I can feel my breast tissue under my arms and on my arms. I can hardly wait to be free from these implants. I did not get a... READ MORE

I have been reading this forum for well over a month and all of you have helped me incredibly. I joined only a few days ago and have had great support so thank you ladies :) If I can help even 1 person to be brave enough to cope, then I will be happy. I am 65. Have had two kids prior to first... READ MORE

So, I've been reading posts and decided it's time for the consult. I am hoping to go natural and I know I will need a lift. It was 1984 when I first augmented under breast in San Diego. The surgeon decided I needed large 450cc. I was shocked at the size of the bandages afterwards, considering I... READ MORE

I came across this website a few months ago when I was still uncertain of whether I was going to get my implants removed. After seeing all the love, support and knowledge shared amongst this community, I have decided to confidently go ahead with the procedure. I will be posting photos sharing my... READ MORE

It seems like a lot of women who are doing explants are miserable and hate their implants, or have had bad experiences, so I'm chiming in to offer a different perspective! I've had neither complications nor a bad experience, but I'm explanting and doing a lift because I'm at a point in my life... READ MORE

I had implants put in and was very happy with them until I discovered they were pip-I was sadly not informed that implants didn't last for life!!!my surgeon says I will be felt and droopy without a lift but I don't want extra scars or to lose sensitivity.because they are pip they are being...

I got implants almost two years ago. At the time I had just finished breastfeeding my son for 2 years and I was also doing fitness competitions. I had always thought that I would get implants after breastfeeding my kids but I guess I rushed a little with the pressure of my competition coach. My... READ MORE

I, like many of you, have sought and found solace in this forum. I had a lift and saline implants placed in 2006. Before that, I had a little girl in 2003 and breastfed for 10 months. I produced a lot of milk and was often engorged because I am a nurse, and worked nights, and did not have... READ MORE

Hi ladies!!! So glad I found you!!! I honestly thought I was probably the only woman that CHOSE to have her implants removed- hehehe. I have had mine- silicone-475 cc- for only 1year. Before implants, I was a 34C. After having kids and breastfeeding, I was unhappy with the shape and they... READ MORE

I have been doing a lot of research for a good ex-plantation doctor, I found one and after my MRI my doctor (GP) recommended me to another one who reconstructs for cancer patients, so I will be seeing him first ( no cancer). I will have to have the lymph node removed at the same time....not... READ MORE
