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 had implants put in almost 7 years ago after having kids. I said "fill 'em up". At the time I was 130 lbs (5'5") I was always large breasted and thought I would be fine without a lift. So against the advice of my ps, I only had the implants. They looked awesome for the first few years.... READ MORE

First of all thank you to all the ladies out there who have been explaining their experience out there on their implant removal process. I have been reading all of your experiences and feeling all sorts of emotions, excited, nervous, scared, fearful, and hopeful. I think you have been going... READ MORE

Hello everyone! Finally I took the strength and push to write here my story. I thank a lot to all the brave girls that share their story in this page, cause when I was on the other "fake and hard" side they were of lot of help. I believe the society fills you with lot of information and images... READ MORE

Yes, I did it. I searched all over Virginia,. Maryland, and finally found the greatest Plastic surgeon! Dr. Eric Khairalla out of Chevy Chase, MD. He was so nice, and extremely informative. I had the en bloc with drains. My surgery was done at Sibley Memorial Hospital, DC. All I remember is... READ MORE

Just had my consultation today! For an explant & lift. I got mentor Saline Implants at 22, but now that I'm older I'm just tired of them and want them out. I'm more concerned with being healthy and fit.. they are 350cc & 375cc overfilled. Procedure is estimated at $6200 for removal... READ MORE

Phew, so I have finally decided I want to book my explant for May 2016, and I'm both excited and terrified! I had my first BA at 18; 280cc silicone cohesive gels under the muscle. I had always felt so self conscious about my tiny 32AA boobs, although I now realise i had barely given them a... READ MORE

It's amazing what can change in 15years. If I could go back & chat to the 29yr old me, I'd have a few things to say that's for sure!!! Firstly... never let a man lower your self esteem... Secondly... don't get implants!!! After some research & a ps recommendation we both left New Zealand &... READ MORE

I hope to find an experienced doctor to remove my implants under local. My left implant is now deflated. I feel so weird having a small breast and one large one! I can feel the deflated implant poking my skin. It's uncomfortable at times. I just need support! Has anyone had their's out under... READ MORE

I am so thankful for this site. I am having issues with my left implant. I have some pain that gets really bad during PMS, then subsides a bit. I'm just not feeling comfortable with these anymore. I chose to get them after nursing my first 2 babies, my full B, small C breasts totally deflated to... READ MORE

I was very satisfied with Dr. Brown and would recommend him to my family and friends. He takes his time answering any and all questions you may have and truly cares about his patients. I was very satisfied with the outcome of my surgery had great results, minimal scarring. I was very happy with... READ MORE

I'm posting these photos before I write a review because last time I had written my lengthy review and than dang, accidentally erased it before it was posted. So pictures first, then story. :) My basic info is I'm a runner, 5'6", 135 pounds. I don't have any health problems. I want the... READ MORE

After a long time I finally have the strengh to put into words all my experience. It is very difficult for me to explain all my feelings and all the things I suffer from these last months. I have always wanted to have big boobs, I was a 34B (90B in Spain), which was ok, but I thought it was not... READ MORE

Hello ladies, first I would like to thank you all for sharing your stories, I can't believe how much time I have spent looking and reading about breasts lately :) 14 years ago I decided to get implants and now really want them out. Looking back I can't believe I done this to my body although I... READ MORE

Getting back to me - my explant journey! Hey ladies, thank you so much for all of the amazing personal stories of bravery and self-acceptance. I could not have come to this decision on my own. I have my explant scheduled for May 13th and although I am nervous, I really can not get in there... READ MORE

I had my first child at 18 years of age and 2 more by the time I was 21. After breast feeding my son, I found that my breast tissue was just MIA! Missing altogether. All that seemed to be left was the skin. Only 18 years old and I felt that my breasts looked 40 years older, like 2 fried eggs... READ MORE

I got my breast augmentation in 2004 (under the muscle) along with lipo (thighs, back, neck, hips) and an upper eyelid lift. I had saline, not sure of the fill, also not sure what size I was beforehand (it's been so long!) I can't remember how long it was (maybe a year?) after the procedure that... READ MORE

So after high... READ MORE

I had been ill from being allergic to silicone and my implants for over 28 years. Dr. S. Warnock expertise, artsy, talent and compassion made my experience and explant of my old implants so easy. Dr. Warnock is just a real human being, you can tell he cares. He is an excellent surgeon and... READ MORE

I went from being very healthy all my life to having constant, annoying, health problems that I always trace back to my immune system. At 42 I really started trying to watch my diet, excercise, and overall health. I realized that massive doses of Vitamins, especially C, helped. Still the auto... READ MORE

First of all I want to say thank you to everyone who has shared their experiences on this site-it has helped me tremendously in moving forward with my decision to remove my implants.
