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 got sub muscular cohesive gel implants Sep. 2009 in NYC. Dr. Jennifer Walden was my surgeon. I had debated for about 7 years because I breast fed 3 children and my boobs deflated. Fast-forward 6 years and I totally regret doing it. In fact, I regretted getting them right afterwards. Sure, they... READ MORE

Just had my saline implants and a lift yesterday. So far it's been pretty easy. I have take a couple Percocet today and one yesterday. I had saline implants put in under the muscle going from a B to a DD. They felt rippled on the sides and every month I would get what felt like an ovarian cyst.... READ MORE

Thanks to those who've written their stories and tried to be helpful. I'll stop lurking and try to do the same now. I got my implants about 25 years ago, when I was 30 years old and had a decent figure. I'd always had large-ish boobs, but since I started developing them in 3rd grade and I was... READ MORE

I'm turning 31 on jan 5th and last year may I decided to have my breast done. I've breast fed my two babies and hated the way my breast looked after, the first time I thought about this was around 8 years ago. So I have thought about this for ages and done my research. 7 months in and I've found... READ MORE

Almost six years ago, I decided to get breast implants. I was in a terrible place in life - I had decided to leave the prestigious law school I worked years to get into, and with it my dreams of the life I thought I wanted; my 10 year+ relationship with my partner had fallen apart; and I was...

I'm 38 yrs old, have 360cc silicone implants, under the muscle with baker 4 capsular contraction and rupture on the left and level 2.5 cc on right with possible rupture. After having saline implants for 8yrs (which ruptured) I was talked into getting silicone in May of 2006. Less than a year... READ MORE

Please help, I am desperately trying to find a doctor who will remove breast implants en bloc/total capsulectomy . I live in Wpg,Mb have had implants since 1980 Now age 54 and want them removed asap. Unfortunately because of my fears I waited too long and Dr Kuusk from BC is no longer doing them... READ MORE

I live in Brisbane, Australia. I considered various plastic surgeons, Dr Feng, Dr G (San Diego); Dr Mirishonic (Sydney) and by strange chance ended up in a consult with Dr Samuel Yang (Brisbane) and I decided to go with him. At age 14 I had extensive surgery to correct pectus excavatum (chest... READ MORE

First of all, I would like to thank all the brave women on realself for sharing their stories. It helped me a lot. So it's my turn to share mine. So here is my story : 8 years ago, after my second child birth I was left with small, deflated and slightly tuberous breast (huge areolas,... READ MORE

My goal is to have my implants removed. I have 20 maybe more years of life left and there is a lot of things i want to do! The boobs that once gave me the confidence i needed are just in the way and serving me no purpose. I may very well need a lift six months to a year down the road after I... READ MORE

Well, where to start! Had silicone overs put in in 1998. Loved them to start with but noticed them get 'firm' after only six weeks. Didn't know any better so thought that was how they were supposed to be! Anyway, two children and fifteen years later they were ridiculously hard. I am talking... READ MORE

I got my silicon implants put in behind the muscle 16 years ago when my daughter was 6 months old and thought I'd like to keep my 'full' boobies that I'd had with pregnancy! I have no idea the size of the implants I got but I was originally a 34b cup before surgery and after went up to a 34dd or... READ MORE

Having had 3 children I felt I'd lost fullness in my breasts. The PS persuaded me to have 200cc implants although I felt smaller would be better. I'm only 5ft 1" and 8 stone. I just wantedto regain what I originally had. Needless to say I felt they were to big for me but I went on the PS... READ MORE

1 yr ago I got 370cc cohesive implants under the muscle.Now have grade 3 capsular contracture in one.My ps wants to do a revision but I'm not keen on the 50/50 odds that it may return-and frankly, I miss who I was.I'm need advise on this and any amazing surgeons that you'd recommend in Toronto...

Hi girl's I must have read every review on here before finally deciding to explant.thank you all so much for sharing your journeys. My breasts have always been an issue right since puberty.I was very aware from the word go that mine were different to my friends. I had a split with a boyfriend... READ MORE

Ultimately my health is most important so I hope to have healthy breast tissue. At some point I will revisit both breast with fat transfer possibly a year from now. Also my most current picture shows a rash I got from the surgical tape and glue almost everything that could happen did as well as... READ MORE

Mentor silicone gel implants with lift done in July 2004. I had initially only wanted a lift but PS told me if I didn't get implants the lift was going to be worthless so I trusted his opinion and it was a huge mistake. I ended up with D cup breasts on a small 5'1" 114LB body and as time has... READ MORE

So the history bit is brief- had my lovely daughter in 1999 and was self conscious about my post pregnancy (what I thought were) saggy deflated breasts. Had been 36c, went down to 34a/ had 250cc round implants in 2001. What can I say- big mistake. I was only 22, immature, my priorities... READ MORE

This site has been so helpful. I never knew what steps to take to get these out. I have decided to explant. I have some concerns. My doctor could not show any pictures of after explant. Should I be concerned about this? He comes highly recommended by women on this site. My insurance will likely... READ MORE
