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 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

I am so thankful for this site. I am having issues with my left implant. I have some pain that gets really bad during PMS, then subsides a bit. I'm just not feeling comfortable with these anymore. I chose to get them after nursing my first 2 babies, my full B, small C breasts totally deflated to... READ MORE

Hello everyone, i' 38 yo, from Italy. Sorry about my english, i could do some mistake :) Anyway, i got my BA 12 years ago, when i was 26. At that time i had very small boobies and the left one was smaller than the right one. I remember some boy was kidding me about the size of my chest and after... READ MORE

I have had 500 cc implants since 1994. I am a 38 DDD, i hate having such huge boobs that hang down to my knees lol. I plan to get a lift when I have huge bags removed. I can feel my breast tissue under my arms and on my arms. I can hardly wait to be free from these implants. I did not get a... READ MORE

8 years have passed since I got my implants. My surgeon did an excellent job, I went from an A to a D cup, I got 350cc silicone moderate profile implants, placed under the muscle via breast crease incision. They look great, but I always felt superficial for getting them. After a year or so I... READ MORE

So far I have contacted a PS who got back to me himself within a few days. I have been to my GP for a referral. Now I am waiting to hear from PS for an appointment for a consult. I was informed that Explantation is covered. I was told if I had a referral from my Dr the consult fee would be... READ MORE

I can't say I don't know the reason why I got them or that I absolutely regret their look and feel, I can't say they make me look super fake, they went with my body without any hardened look, hard capsule, or appearance issues. I was flat, not skinny, insecure, always wishing for boobs and size... READ MORE

I have had silicone above the muscle implants for 8 years. I just had them removed 4 days ago by Dr. Busby in Portland, OR. I had them removed because I have been in ill health for several years since getting implanted. I made my decision to remove my implants about two years ago but did not... READ MORE

I gave birth to my first child at age 16 and breastfed. Several years and 2 babies later my breasts looked like empty water balloons hanging on my chest. Nine years ago a close friend of mine who was pushing 60 had a breast reduction and came out with gorgeous results. I had thought I was too... READ MORE

I decided to have them removed because I was having extreme difficulty breathing, along with many other unexplained symptoms, such as changes in vision (brown spots in retina as well), tingling hands, joint pain, extreme thirst, fatigue, cold hands and fingers (turned whitish), headaches,...

First off thank you everyone who contributes their inspirational stories, this has given Mr enough confidence to finally get these out! Does anyone think I should get a lift? I had one child and breast fed only six months. I was a small B before and now a DD. Foes my left implant look deflated? ... READ MORE

I got implants 12 years ago in 2004. I was a late bloomer in middle school that got teased mercilessly by the boys for my skinny arms and flat chest. I even once had a boy embarrass me at age 11 in class by asking me if I had a bra on (I did) and he asked me why I had one since I had no chest..... READ MORE

I was in a very different place emotionally when I had these implants in 2008. After years of breast pain despite being told my implants were ok - and finding out they were pip implants - I had the operation yesterday to have them removed. 100% correct decision. I'm sore but positive and feel so... READ MORE
