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.

Hi there ladies! I have found this site so helpful before I got my implants and I am looking for some wisdom now. Here is some info: When I had just turned 19 I went and got 375cc Saline Mentor implants under the muscle. I healed fine and my surgery went well, but they have always been very... READ MORE

I had implants placed a little over 4.5 years ago. I had always thought having bigger boobs would make me look sexier, I would fill out clothes better, etc. My husband didn't want me to get them, but I did anyway. Fast forward to today and I hate them!! I haven't liked them since I got them.... READ MORE

The 12 year old silicon gummies come out today! I had a larger volume on the left to try and help with assymetry. I wanted an explant with mastoplexy, but my PS said we have to start with a simple explant and re-evaluate again in 6 months. I will write more after surgery when I have tons of time... READ MORE

Well, after lurking for a couple years, I've finally decided it's time! I've gone for my consultation with Dr. Doezie and decided we are the perfect fit. I'm going to pop in to the office on March 31st, have my implants removed, and head back home. That easy. He will do it under local, make a... READ MORE

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
