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.

First, I would like to thank this website for helping me over the last 3 months make the decision to finally remove the implants I have not liked for a long time. So, like a few others out there, I got my implants in the Pamela Anderson late 90's era. The doctor must have thought I wanted big... READ MORE

I have finally scheduled my explant procedure! I was disappointed with my implants and my decision to get them. My right breast never 'dropped' and soon developed a hard and painful capsular contraction. Seeing your photos of what to expect and reading your stories has been such a comfort that... READ MORE

Okayyyyy so if it wasn't for this website i probably wouldn't have the courage right now to get my implants removed but i have seen hundreds of girls remove theirs and be extremely happy, so i decided I'm going to follow in all of your lovely footsteps and get mine out. I got my implants when i... 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

Hi All! They're out!!! Whoohooo!!! Sorry I haven't updated sooner. My 2 year old is sick & my middle son has the flu right now so I have been trying to rest & also take care of both of them. My surgery was easy peasy. I came in & they called me back. They took several pics. Then I changed into... READ MORE

Hello I have been inspired by many of you to finally take the plunge and have my 17 year old breast implants removed. I got my breast implants the second I turned 18 years old. In high school it was always the idea I had in my head; that when I turned 18, I was going to do it. The courage to go... READ MORE

I got saline above muscle in 2003. Severe capsule contraction on left breast. Had capsulectamy done with replacement in 2003 or 2004. Silicone, textured above muscle. Left more drooping right one developed a crease and I went back to fix it. He put the bottom half in some sor t of pocket to... READ MORE

Had tiny (a), uneven saggy boobs after 3 kids. Decided to go with implants at 37 and my dr then suggested a lift instead. I didn't listen and have been disappointed by my choice ever since. They are uncomfortable and I have to get clothes that make me look fat or like a stripper. I am so ready... READ MORE

BACKGROUND - WHY I GOT IMPLANTS I grew up as an extremely shy and insecure young girl. I was born to teenage parents, and the oldest of 4 children. I suppose in one way I grew up very quickly as I took on a lot of the care-taking of my siblings. In another way, I was still very immature with... READ MORE

I had my implants put in 8 years ago after years of wanting them, especially after breast feeding I felt they were tired and saggy. Unfortunately I had them put in quickly with a last minute change to go bigger than I first decided. I was a 32A/B and wanted to go to a C. At the last minute I... READ MORE

I am a little late sharing my story as I didn't find this forum until the night before my procedures. I was scared and nervous, and words cannot describe how much this forum helped ease my mind going into surgery. I have spent hours reading stories during my recovery these last few days, and I'm...

I had silicone/over the muscle implants plus mastopexy 26 yrs ago. Even at 25 yrs old I had very saggy breasts, I looked as if I'd nursed many children before I'd had one! My implants have never given me a moment of problem. I think I have the best surgeon ever! They have always felt completely... 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

I always was self conscious of my breast size, and wanted fuller size to add curves to my body. I am very athletic and did not have much fat on me. I am petite, 5'4 and 105lbs. Pre BA I was a small 32 B, and I wish I kept it that way. I was young and felt the pressure to look beautiful and... READ MORE

I had my first Augmentation at 19. Going from about a 34A to a 34C All of my teen life I wanted bigger boobs. My first implants were saline. Under the muscle. 8 years later my left side ruptured. I had lost feeling in the left breast and I could feel rippling and movement or a popping feeling... READ MORE

THis is my story! Way back in Dec 1999 Dr Pousti placed my breast implants and I recovered as we rung in new millennium! Back then, I had lost about 15 lbs from running every day and I was not happy with the the smaller size and shape of my breasts. After the implants were great! ... READ MORE

I had my BA when I was 42 years old and never had issues until a few years ago. My left side started to deflate gradually leaving me with a very asymmetrical appearance. I put off having them removed due to financial reasons and partly just not wanting to deal with it. I started having... READ MORE

Dr.Brown had done some previous procedures on me: full tummy tuck, C2O laser, eyebrow lift, upper & lower blef, which all turned out great. So, I was completely confident she could fix my old implants which ruptured. She did a fantastic job & took extremely good care of me while I was... READ MORE

I'm 30 and have had 300 cc silicone implants for the past 9 years. When the implants were put in I also had a lift. I am 5'7 and was a healthy 125 lbs at the time. Since the operation I have gained weight non stop and now am over 200 lbs. I'm very nervous about the surg on 2/25/16 and was... READ MORE

Hello! I am new to this forum and have loved reading all the breast explant stories. Thank you for sharing... it's really helping me in my journey.
