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.

After two children, my 34b boobies looked sad. Living in Dallas at the time (where everything is BIG) decided to get implants. I told my Dr "I want big" and big he did. Almost 600cc's! For my 5'4" frame, 130lb at the time, were WAY TOO BIG for my body. I have been so self conscious of these... READ MORE

About 18 years ago, I was in an unhealthy relationship and state of mind. I grew up with low self-esteem due to family dynamics, and was with someone who objectified every woman he saw. I was very insecure. I made the decision to get implants, bringing me from a 36B-C to a 36DD. While I had a... READ MORE

Hello there. I found this website a couple weeks ago and I want to say ''Thank You'' all for sharing your stories. I never thought I would find a nice community online talking about explant! So much information on implant… but so few on explant! I started thinking about an explant in the last f... READ MORE

Removing Silicone Gel Implants, getting fat transfer. Hoping for full natural looking breast. Hope to be a full B cup. I haven't had the procedure yet.It's coming up in a few months. I am just anxious to schedule it. The doctors office will be getting back with me this week with the cost. I will... READ MORE

I had saline, over the muscle, breast implants 25 years ago. Infant say I've ever felt very comfortable with them. I decided I wanted to have them removed. My breasts seemed to have a mind of their own and went from an implant of 34D to DD in those years. I was very anxious as I've never had... READ MORE

First off I have to thank all the brave & amazing women whose reviews I've been reading for the past year. If it weren't for all of you I would have never known I had other options than to leave these silicone bags on my chest. I'm so full of gratitude to all of you! I thought my story was rare...

In 1985 i got double lumen silicone in saline implants my freshman year of college. I really didn't know what I was doing but luckily my mom researched for me and I had one of the best plastic surgeons in town. I weighed 95 lbs. at 5'4", and wore a AAA, but I'm sure if I had waited til I grew up... READ MORE

Well like most of the story's I read on real self, I went ahead with surgery to increase my bust size for my own personal reasons. I'm the type of girl that does what I want, and I wanted fuller boobs. Not to show off or be more appealing to others. But so I could fill a bra not just the bottom... READ MORE

My story begins like everybody else's......young, impulsive, and thought breasts were important to "feel normal". I had adorable little double A's and at age 20 underwent BA with 360 saline on top. I actually liked them for about 7 years, then they started to be cumbersome. I got pregnant with... READ MORE

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

Like many others I stumbled onto this site and became fascinated with the explant reviews. After reading many, many explant reviews I think I am ready to start my journey now. I am ready to explant and am looking for a PS in the San Diego area. I think I will get consults from two or three... READ MORE

A huge "thank you" to all those who contribute to this site. The knowledge and insight I gleaned from all the stories and reviews, gave me the courage to get my implants removed. I’ve read and re-read so many inspiring stories. Pictures were a tremendous help. Doctor reviews were very i... READ MORE

I want my implants removed after 35 years, they've been replaced twice and never been happy with these ones, at the age of 30 I was extremely flat chested little to no breast tissue, I don't think that has changed as I'm still quite slim but I just want these out but of course I am very very...

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
