Breast Implant Removal

WORTH IT RATING 1,311 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.

Hello ladies of "The Real Self Team"... I am writing this blog to tell my story of my explant (breast implant removal)...

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 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

I got implants when I was 20! Then had two pregnancies. My breast were so large and hurt my back and neck. I consulted with a doctor outside the VA healthcare system. I was told it would cost about $8000. The Doctor told me to ask my primary care at the VA for a consult to plastics. I was a... READ MORE

I got implants about 11 years ago. I have been sick for 10. I just recently came across hundreds of stories of women with the same "mysterious" illness as I have from their (supposedly safe) saline implants. I'm getting mine out! I am 34 and I have smooth saline implants 375 cc, breastfed 2... READ MORE

Let me start by saying you ladies are wonderful. I am so very glad I stumbled upon this site a month ago and can't thank you all enough for sharing your stories & photo's & giving me hope.

Hi girls! I'm not gonna be super long-winded. I've been reading all of your stories for a while in preparation for my procedure so that I know what to expect. I'll be explanting my 500 +/- cc saline implants along with the capsules (grade IV CC- gradually right implant migrated up toward my... READ MORE

I always was self conscious of my breast size, and wanted fuller size to add curves to my body. I am very athletic and did not have much fat on me. I am petite, 5'4 and 105lbs. Pre BA I was a small 32 B, and I wish I kept it that way. I was young and felt the pressure to look beautiful and... READ MORE

By the time I was 26 I was thoroughly fed up with comments from friends and boyfriends about my 34AA boobies. I'd become ashamed and felt very unwomanly with my non-boobs. I was smaller than EVERYONE I had ever met! Even when I put on a few pounds I discovered to my dismay the fat never touched... READ MORE
