WORTH IT RATING 1,320 reviews over 24 months

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.

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

?Hello Everyone, I would like to share my story so that it may help anyone else who is struggling with this decision.

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! Don't rush your consults. Beware of the 1 website that will try and scare you into the most drastic explant... READ MORE

I had implants put in 8 years ago. I'm embarrassed to say but it was really an impulse move. I was going in for partial tummy tuck, and before I knew it, I signed up for that plus the implants. I was a 34D to start with, great size for my body, but they were starting to sag a bit. I... READ MORE

Hi everyone, This forum has helped me a lot when I was going through the decision of removing my implants. I kept putting it off and telling myself I will remove them when I turn 40. Well, 40 is just right around the corner and when I read your inspirational post and stories I decided to do it.... READ MORE

After being sick for many years following implanting saline implants for 10 years, I decided to explant. While some of my symptoms are subsiding, making the implant removal worth it, my cosmetic outcome is horrendous. Especially since I paid for a lift after I was told I would be deformed... READ MORE

I had 3 breast augmentations in my 20s. In 2005, I decided to remove my last BA & it was horrible. My Dr. Also did a lift which I think has something to do with the pain, due to where the lift was, I now have servere scar tissue. It feels like my skin is constantly pulling. As you can see my...

Decided to have my breast implants removed after having implants since I was about 20yrs old. I had saline over the muscle but then at 25 had them replaced with silicone under the muscle (way better, more natural appearance and look). Developed an auto immune disease not long after getting my... READ MORE

I got my implants in 1997 and went from a small B to a C. I breastfed two kids, and had been a small C before breastfeeding. I had saline implants put under the muscle and after the swelling had gone down I noticed that my breasts would get distorted when ever I flexed my chest muscles. Due to... READ MORE

After 11 years I was ready to get rid of my implants. They didn't look bad but they were always in the way. Good thing I had them removed; left breast had encapsulation and calcification. I'm 5 days post and still in pain. They look scary, but I'm optimistic. Required pain meds just 2 days. Very... READ MORE
