Aim to please?: Having breast implants for reasons other than your own desire to have them is problematic for just this reason. If you don't want them, then have them removed and be able in the future to "just say no" to requests to alter your body image for someone else.

Ummmm: I'm not sure what exactly you mean, but if you had surgery because your partner wanted you to have bigger breasts, that was a mistake. If you are unhappy with them, then yes, by all means you should have them removed. Aesthetic procedures should never be done to try and please a partner. Good luck!

Maybe.: Patients undergoing breast augmentation surgery should do so only if they are self motivated. At this point, if you are pleased with the appearance/feel of your breasts, best to leave them alone. Do not have them removed unless, you are again internally motivated to do so. Best wishes.

Do it for you: Any plastic surgery carries risks and benefits. I tell all my patients that they should only have surgery if this is something they want for themselves. I would have discouraged you from getting implants for a partner in the first place, but the decision to have them removed is one you need to make for yourself; no one here can make that decision for you.

Not for spite: If you had breast augmentation my guess is that you were ok with making that change because you felt it would make you both happy. If that's not true then you need to take some time for healing after a break up to decide what is best for you. Taking out your implants is not like discarding a ring or some photos. Best to make a healthy not an emotional choice.
