I have read many reviews on this site regarding implant removal, and I would love imput from anyone with experience! I had my initial augmentation done in 2007. I was 33 years old and had nursed 2 kids for a year each, so my pre-children 'B' cups were deflated and sad. I was very adamant about only wanting to replace lost volume with the implants, and absolutely did NOT want anything larger... more
Yes, I made a big mistake. I had 330 cc saline breast implants put in. It was a rushed decision, I was feeling insecure and I decided to do it. I thought it would be life changing, I thought I would be happy. However, I have never been more depressed or angry with myself. First, I'm 5'2 and 105 lbs. 330 cc's gave me a 32DD that I was busting out of. Don't let any doctor tell you you'll be "a... more
Let me begin by thanking everyone for sharing their story. It's been very helpful. My story is typical: I had my children and breast fed each child for a year. I went from a C cup to an F cup with both kids. When I finished nursing altogether, I was a B cup and they were very sad looking. My neighbor had the "mommy makeover" and made it look so easy so I signed up! I wish I would have... more
I had my 425CC high profile Allergan silicone implants placed in 3/2011. After a lifetime of being unable to fill out a bikini top, I loved my new breasts. Unfortunately, within 2 days of my implants being placed, I developed the start of digital ulcers. You see, I had a mild case of Raynaud’s prior to surgery (started approximately 2.5 years before surgery) where my fingers (and... more
First I just want to say how happy I am that I fond this community. Everyone is so supportive and when I first came to terms that I did in fact hate my implants, reading everyone's stories was a great way to console myself and understand that it does get better. So hopefully writing this will help others who are researching the same thing :) I'm a little nervous to add pictures, but I probably... more
I posted my story in the wrong section so wanted to start it here so that I could share with others. I was implanted 18 years ago at the age of 22. I am 39 now and ready to say goodbye to them. I was very small before I got them a 32AA and when I got the implants I was a 32 C, after 2 kds and 20lbs I am a 34DD.
I have never felt well sense about a year after the implants. Before them I was... more
Thanks to the wonderful stories here I was inspired to move forward with explantation. I am 29 years old, 30 next month. I am 5'6" taIl and 120lbs. I have always been naturally thin so my breast never developed as large as other girls during grade school so I decided to get implants back in 2005 just so I would feel better in my tops and bathing suits.
My original size was a very... more
I am 24 years old 5'5" and at pre op i was a 34A, post op 397 sillicone mods. I had little breast tissue to begin with but decided to get implants. It was only November when i decided and not more than 3 months had gone by before i decided to have them removed. I thought i would be happy and that weird feeling of something wrong would pass, i just didnt feel like myself. Staring in... more
