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 am beyond excited about my consult for explant in a couple of weeks. I have had these 450+ cc boobs since my early 20s. They never looked right on me. I have been hiding them and covering them up for years. Clothes don't fit properly. The implants hurt when I sleep. They are under the muscle.... READ MORE

Tomorrow is the big day!! After 7 years I am tired of these heavy things. I am a bit nervous of how they are going to look after but I am tired of feeling so heavy & bigger than I really am. No matter how much I workout the breasts do not shrink. Haha. I have been wanting this explant for a... READ MORE

Hello to you all out there, My story is a bit of a strange one, but I am writing it in the hope that someone out there can help or has been down this road too. Sorry if it is a bit long winded :-) Bit of history: About me... I am 40 yrs old i have 4 wonderful children, 2 grandchildren, happily... READ MORE

My initial BA was strongly influenced by people in my close environment. Some had undergone the procedure and I was "promised" a BA from a young age. If they wouldn't develop more by the time I was 18 I could always get one. It was not the wisest strategy but well intentioned. Once I made the... READ MORE

I have been reading the reviews for a year now - learning, researching and interviewing PS's. I appreciate the time all of the participants on this site have taken to document and share their experiences. It truly gave me a direction and managed my expectations. I am turing 50, and have had my... READ MORE

Hello all I have been following the stories of lots of ladies on here and it my turn on Tuesday and I am utterly terrified about the outcome as the time gets closer. Am trying to be positive but have seen some scary results albeit on here. I know we are all different but my surgeon is very... READ MORE

August of 2013 I had Sentra implants put in under the muscle, 350cc in the right and 380cc in the left. They looked great. But were very stiff and uncomfortable. I could not lay on my stomach at night or really even on my side with out shoving a pillow between the girls. When I worked out I felt... READ MORE

Hello everyone, I figured that I have been commenting and asking questions to all the explant girls -that maybe I should write about myself and include photos. Going to try and make short. First BA - 2001 - 34 yo after 2 children....350 cc silicone over the muscle...always felt too big in... READ MORE

I was extremely lopsided in my breasts as I developed and remember having a DD on the right and barely a B on the left. Insurance covered a Breast implant surgery in 1998 to try and match up my breasts. Over the years my natural right breast has gotten even bigger and heavier (now a FF Cup).... READ MORE

Hi I have had my implants in for about 11 yrs now, for the last few yrs I have hated them! They feel heavy and make me look bigger than I accually am. I had them done just to fill them up a bit after breast feeding , I was happy with my B cup but they were a bit saggy, wish I had uplift then... READ MORE

I am so scared and so worried about the results. I have a history of body dysmorphic disorder and I am SO worried that I will find myself in square one again. My explant is scheduled for tomorrow and I'm not going to remove the capsule even though I have a mild CC in my right breast. I am... READ MORE

I have read so many reviews on here and they have helped me so much so am adding my own to be able to give something back. Nearly 8 years ago I had 340cc cohesive gel implants placed under the muscle at The Hospital Group. I was a very tiny 30A, had always been totally flat chested and had... READ MORE

Hello ladies! Here comes my story! After breastfeeding my 2 wonderful children my breast looked sorry... It didn't bother me as much as it did my husband at this time. I don't know how I let him talk me into this but I ended up getting fake boobs. I agreed on 375cc but somehow during the... READ MORE

I had my 350ml saline subpectoral implants removed after 8 years. They were heavy and too large for my 5'3" 115lb small frame. After years of chronic neck and back pain, frequent trips to the chiropractor and looking dowdy and top heavy I decided it was time for them to go. I was fortunate... READ MORE

I wanted to have these breast implants out for a while and finally had the nerve to go through with it. They ere hard as rocks and started getting a little deformed. I talked to my husband, who has only seen me with the size 32D breast and needed to have him on board with this. He was totally... READ MORE

Hi I've had my breast implants since 2005. I have 345cc left and 365cc right. My implants are under the muscle. First of all I would like to say this site is wonderful!!! My journey has been rough. I've regretted having my implants since day 1. I didn't realize that they could change your life... READ MORE

I have to start this off by saying that I loved my implants. They looked amazing! They were under sub-muscular (300 cc) and looked/ felt real! I got them at 31 years of age because I'd always wanted bigger boobs and had enough money in the bank to pay in full. I went to a surgeon in Austin, TX... READ MORE

I got implants as an insecure 25 year old. To be honest I did love them but as I grew older my paranoia about having these things in my body increased, especially as I discovered I had been given the PIP implants (later replaced). I am planning on having kids in the near future and couldn't... READ MORE

After 15 years, I am ready to have itty bitty boobies again! I was small-average pre-kids (34B), but after nursing 3 kids I went to a 34 A, nearly AA. Nothing. Nada. So I wanted boobs again, like I had had when I was lactating (up to 34C+). I went with an out-of-town doctor who did... READ MORE
