Breast implant removal is a surgical procedure performed when a woman decides she no longer wants her implants. The surgery can address concerns like implant malfunction, capsular contracture, and dissatisfaction with breast size. It's also commonly performed on women who have experienced sagging due to aging, pregnancy, or weight fluctuations. If a woman chooses not to replace her implants, a breast lift can be done at the same time to address skin that may have been stretched. LEARN MORE >

I had my first breast augmentation in 2006 with 300cc silicone implants placed below the muscle by Dr. Brad Jacobs. I was a 32B to begin with and the augmentation brought me up to a 32D. Almost immediately after the surgery, I began to develop capsular contracture on the right side which... READ MORE

Beginning my Breast Implant Removal Journey. I was very young when I made the decision to get them. At this point in my life I want to feel "naturally beautiful" and love myself for who I am. I got my implant in 2003 and I have never had any problems with them. I was very happy with how they... READ MORE

I have been thinking about getting these boobs out for a couple of years. I had assumed I needed to get a lift as well and wasn't prepared for a lengthy recovery and large expense. But after seeing the results of everyone on this site that had an explanation without a lift, I have decided to... READ MORE

Quick summary. Had 3 sets of implants spanning 25 years. Approx 295cc silicone under then over then sub-glandular. Felt very heavy and un-natural, always hunching over to hide them and felt fake. Been very encouraged by others who have posted before me, and am pleasantly surprised by how well... READ MORE

I hope I can correct this before it is too late. My husband and I have been trying for a baby for over 4 and a half years. After recently seeing a fertility doctor to help investigate it turns out my high prolactin levels could be causing my body to give off the signal I am breast feeding. ... READ MORE

I'm 46...divorced mother of three. I have silicone gel implants now for 12 yrs. Loved my little size B breast but they were empty bags after breast-feeding 3 boys. My breast were so huge while breast feeding and I never felt comfortable with large breastsand was happy when they shrunk back... READ MORE

I've never been more excited. Like many on this forum, I had implants done too young (21 years old) because of my lack of self-esteem. I had NO boobs, none whatsoever, and just wanted to feel more feminine, more proportionate. I can honestly say that I've hated them since the first year I... READ MORE

I got my implants 8 years ago and it's time to remove them. I just want to be me; the natural me. I was beautiful before my surgery and I just wanted my old me back. So my search for finding the right Doctor began. Shortly after my search, I found just the right Doctor: Dr. Daniel Kim in... READ MORE

Dr. Leake performed three of my operations. Two breast augmentations and my final... My explant . Very skilled, compassionate and talented surgeon . Would never think to go anywhere else . My results were great with implants , took them out for health reasons. My results are looking amazing for... READ MORE

QUESTION! Have any of you brave women that have had your implants removed because of health reasons.. Experienced a better quality of life since getting them out? Any less pain? I had a fantastic chest in high school. After my first was born, I was ruined. My left breast hung down a full inch... READ MORE

So i had my BA 7 weeks ago and I'm already pretty sure I want to explant very soon. The reasons for this is many but the main reason is that I hate my results. My PS lowered my folds about 4 cm (i think), and it was way too much! I look really bad right now. Other reasons are: implants are too... READ MORE

I've been wanting to remove my implants for a time, but I was unsure if I wanted to replace them or just remove them. I was conflicted with the way they would look, but now I don't care with aesthetic as much as I want my health back. I got my implants right out of high school, because I felt... READ MORE

Hello everyone! Thank god for this site as I move forward with my procedure! I never had issues w my saline under the muscle implants. What I did have was a 30 lb weight gain which rendered me huge and matronly looking. Even though I had a lift initially, after my recent 27. Lb loss, my breasts... READ MORE

After 12 months of research and working out if I wanted new implants, no implants or back to my natural self I went under the knife on the 4 July 16. I has now been 1 week later and I could not have been happier. So the reason why I wanted my implants out - Approximately 13 years ago after... READ MORE

I've been following the journeys of so many courageous women on this sight for more than a year now, and I've been wanting to remove my implants for even longer. It's nice to see and read stories just like mine. I found a great PS who told me about deflating in the office first and I was... READ MORE

I had silicone implants under the muscle placed in 2007. They look great but they were never really me. Like so many of you, I went from insecure about my small breasts to insecure about my large breasts. Fast forward a few years and this decision from years ago no longer makes sense. My... READ MORE

So my story - I was 18 years old and insecure with one breast slightly larger than the other (probably not more than one size difference) Left A and Right B., and realised later in life that this is very common. But as a naive teenager, paralysed by fear, it felt like the end of the world. So... READ MORE

Seven years ago i decided to get a breast lift. I went to a reputable park avenue surgeon in nyc. He told me that if i get implants w the lift it will be a sexier look. I never liked the implant look but i decided to go for it. I was curious i guess??? I got 200cc silicone implants partially... READ MORE

I've only just come across this website. I've been sat at the computer for 2 hrs now trawling through all these very brave women's stories and I am seriously thinking about having my 18 yr old implants removed, my initial thought was to have them replaced.....I am 45...... But the thought of... READ MORE

I've been considering implant removal for a long time now and I finally set a date. I am having them aspirated in the office in two weeks to get an idea of what they will look like after removal. I really hope they look okay because I don't want to replace them or have a lift done. I... READ MORE
