Has anyone removed their implants? Got mine in 2003 and seriously considering on getting them now removed. I am having a lot of zingers in my chest area (not sure yet what is causing this, but perhaps now is a good time to just remove these). I had LAT flap reconstruction as well back then.

Just looking for any feedback from those who might have removed their implants.

Steelmill - if you look on the 'search' function, you'll see lots of threads about 'going flat', changing to flat, etc. Or you can try the 'exchange' thread.
