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.

Almost three years ago, one week before my 19th birthday, I underwent breast augmentation surgery. At the time, I weighed 112 lbs at 5'2". I received 175cc saline implants under the muscle. For years, I had always been unhappy with my breasts. I had been teased in middle school and high school... READ MORE

I had 500cc implants 7 yrs ago, same as others, just looking for a confidence boost and they did the trick more or less. Within the first year I noticed they ached still but my Ps nurse said they'll probably take a while to settle down. Since then, they have hurt when I run, when I do chest or... READ MORE

I had silicone implants under the muscle placed in 2007. They look great but they were never really me. Like so many of you, I went from insecure about my small breasts to insecure about my large breasts. Fast forward a few years and this decision from years ago no longer makes sense. My... READ MORE

I've been considering implant removal for a long time now and I finally set a date. I am having them aspirated in the office in two weeks to get an idea of what they will look like after removal. I really hope they look okay because I don't want to replace them or have a lift done. I... READ MORE

First, I want to thank all of the brave women on this site for sharing their personal stories. Real Self, has been a wonderful resource and support group. In March 2005, I had my breast augmentation - performed by a local reputable surgeon. My 360cc smooth saline under the muscle implants,... READ MORE

I've always loved the look full breasts, and I hoped and prayed that some day that I would get boobs. I had been a 34B since I was 16 years old and pretty much stayed there until I got implants. When I had children, I loved the feel of my breasts when my milk came in, and I liked being curvy... READ MORE

I had my implants placed in 2006 when I was young and was only really concerned with the present, I didn't think about the future and made a decision I now regret! I was a 34A prior to augmentation and like most of us who have implants, I had them placed for a confidence boost and to better fill... READ MORE

LOCATED IN AUSTRALIA :) Had 299c moderate profile implants placed one year ago at a cosmetic clinic that at the time was booming, they were the "place to go" at the time, for their prices ($6,000aus) and their social media worthy results. However one year later, i have implants that are too big... READ MORE

Hi, I got implants 2001, silicone gel mentor 300 cc(I think, I list my paperwork) I was a 34 A cup now 34 C. I have wanted them removed for years now.

I had breast implants over the muscle implanted in December 2011, the look and feel of the implants were not what I had expected or hoped for. After having my two children, my once naturally full bust was a little less pert and at the time I wrongly felt that surgery was the answer! What a bad... READ MORE

Hello all, When I was 19 I decided to get breast implants (350cc saline, under the muscle). At the time, I was self-conscious about my breast and I felt like I needed them.

After months of severe anxiety and several consultations with various local and out state plastic surgeons about the removal of ruptured implants, I took the plunge and went up to see Dr. Lu-Jean Feng in Cleveland, Ohio.
