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 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. Anytime I'd looked up breast implant removal in the past I'd find not so flattering photo's, a few horror... READ MORE

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

I was a A cup 20 yrs ago prior to implants. With implants I became a C then after having children and gaining some weight my breast size became a huge D. 2 yrs ago my left breast became firm and had a burning sensation. Went to the doctor said everything was fine. I think that's when my implant... READ MORE

I had Dow implants in 1989. 20+ years and 3 kids later, the left implant had formed into an encapsulated cyst. I needed removal & Dr Maclin said nipples should be "pepperonies not pancakes". My breasts are uneven & the nipples don't match. I was wary of putting implants back in, now I don't have... READ MORE

I did a breast augmentation in 1998 with 330cc saline implants behind the muscle. Two years later, In the summer of 2000, my left implant ruptured and began to deflate. Strangely I felt better with it though my chest was asymmetrical. But when I went back to see my surgeon and asked him to... READ MORE

Having breastfed my daughter in 1987 for way too long :) my breasts were saggy crepey empty b cups. 2003 I had a peri aereola lift and 240cc low profile round smooth sub muscular implants through the areola which took me to a full C cup, I replaced 8 years later in 2012 for 300cc high profile...

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

After my daughter I was unhappy with my deflated saggy breasts and chose to get saline implants when she was 6. I had very seriously contemplated a lift then but my PS talked me into the implants and I was young and naive. I then lost almost 40lbs and wasn't happy with the appearance of the... READ MORE

Gained my breast implants in 2005. And I loved them for a long time. A couple of years ago I began to experience some health problems. Irritated bowel syndrome, joint pains, serious night sweats, dizziness, fatigue, and so on. I love to run, but more and more I felt after a run, like I was... READ MORE
