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.

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.

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!

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

I had breast implants over the muscle implanted in December 2011, the look and feel of the implants were not what I had expected or hoped for. After having my two children, my once naturally full bust was a little less pert and at the time I wrongly felt that surgery was the answer! What a bad... READ MORE

Hello all, When I was 19 I decided to get breast implants (350cc saline, under the muscle). At the time, I was self-conscious about my breast and I felt like I needed them.

After months of severe anxiety and several consultations with various local and out state plastic surgeons about the removal of ruptured implants, I took the plunge and went up to see Dr. Lu-Jean Feng in Cleveland, Ohio.

I considered removing my 350cc saline high profile implants after 9 years. My once perky breasts were turning heavy and droopy requiring me to strap them in heavily when working out.

Wanted implants for about 6 years (at least I thought I did). Now after 2 weeks of having them, I'm having 2nd thoughts. I'm a very active person & can already see how much they're going to be in my way and prevent me from doing what I used to comfortably. Plus they feel so much colder than my... READ MORE

I have decided to get my 400cc 4 year old silicone breast implants removed. I got my breast impacts when I was 24 in Golden Colorado.
