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.

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...

My gp saiid i need to get them removed so i went to see the surgeon who put them ( he is still around). He told me that i would... 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

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

I had a hard time finding another review around my age with my intentions, and I hope my story and experience can help another woman who is struggling with making serious decisions about her body. I had my BA 10 years ago, I was young, naive, and obsessed with becoming more busty. I chose 380... READ MORE

This will be a long one, so pull up your chair! This site has been incredibly helpful to me during my journey to explanation. I got my first set of silicone implants in 1991 at the age of 29. I had always wanted an augmentation as I remained a stubborn 34A with a bony chest until I became... READ MORE

Hi all, feels strange that I am actually writing a review rather than just reading them as I have done for so long now. My story is familiar to many. Very small and insecure growing up, being a little asymmetrical just heightened my misery. I dwelt on my breasts day in and day out. In my... READ MORE

So there we are! My implants are OUT! I thought one of them had ruptured and an ultrasound confirmed fluid around one of the implants. I had an appoint to have them removed on Jan 12, 2016. But the call about a cancellation yesterday afternoon. Had them out first thing in the morning today, but... READ MORE

If you are considering explanting, pls get numerous opinions. There's a few ps who prey on desperate women and who will try and scare you into a quick drastic procedure. Do your research!
