I was unhappy with my augmentation from a different ps from 2001, then I had a tummy tuck from the same ps and I had an uneven scar and what I called a "front butt." I met with Dr. Agha and he was really quick with explaining the results and procedures he would do to correct my concerns. He wanted to perform a reverse tummy tuck, breast lift with I,plant removal, scar correction and to put... more
Almost a decade with overfilled saline implants, about 400cc on my small frame. Took it's toll on my back, and totally regretted them. Successfully breastfed with them, which only added to the weight. My breasts were large and saggy with this weird roundness. Could not stand it anymore! Better to have ME and saggy, than huge and saggy making me look fatter than I was.
Explant feels wonderful... more
Hello Chicas!!! Well let me start off by saying that this site is AWESOME!! Okay soooo let me tell you A little bit about myself...when I was 24 I had saline implants 350 on the left and 375 on the right.. under the muscle.. Before the implants I had 32-34A and so I felt I needed bigger boobs because I was too small.. So now I'm ready to be me ol self again.. Oh how I regret getting implants..... more
I want to have pretty boobies! Its okay if they are small as long as they look pretty without a bra. Right now I have 500 cc silicone implants under the muscle. Maybe once they are out they will look more even. One is bigger then the other and lower. The other one got encapsulated and it bothers me. It also hurt.
The implants are out!!! My P.S was the best!! She is so careful and... more
Not going for the lift. I had implants before and explanted and although they looked deflated at first, they looked better than before implants! I've also been inspired by all of you lovelies here on real self. :). And I found the explantology website which is inspirational for not getting a lift. I wish I had never messed with my body. My breasts are always uncomfortable and sometimes... more
I had my Allergan silicone gel implants placed in June 2011. I was 29 at the time and was done having kids. I had wanted implants since I was 9 years old. I used to tell people I had "triangle boobs" before getting implants. In hindsight, I had great, natural boobs. After nursing, all I really needed was a good lift. But NO! There was always that desire to have implants, so I went for it... more
First of all, I want to say this site is amazing! I have been reading through the posts over the past 2 months and I want to say thank you to all of you women for your vulnerability and courage in sharing your pictures and experiences. This has helped me to come to my decision to finally have my breast implants removed. I have been contemplating this for a few years, and the time has... more
I have had breasts implants for almost 17 years and I am ready to be natural again. I was a full B cup size before implantation, but I was also very thin back then (before kids) at 5'4" and weighing 115 pounds. After implants (+25 pounds weight gain after kids) my implants are DD cup size. Yikes... That's huge!!! My implants are saline 390cc, placed under the muscle. I am now, 17 years older... more
As several of the beautiful women here, I too, and didn't know it then, was needing a fixing something more on the inside than the outward appearance. I had my BA, 31 years ago, during a time when my first marriage was breaking...my breasts then seemed to have been the focal point of my "need fixing," then for sure things will be alright! Not so!
Eight years later, I became a Christian... more
Hi ladies.. I've been so nervous, scared, upset, and unsure of my upcoming surgery. I regret ever ever getting my breast implants... I had a small size b and decided to get 374 saline cc when I was 24.. Little did I know that this would be the biggest mistake of my life! I've had 4 reconstructive surgeries, saline to silicone, 375 to 300 ccs, and have done the protein matrix. Literally I've... more
I got my implants when I was 19, and I have 350cc silicone. I was able to get silicone because my surgeon deemed me to have a congenital deformity, 'tuberous breasts'. I had a fairly mild case but definitely was what I was dealing with. I did a LOT of research over the course of about three years leading up to my surgery, so I felt that I was being smart about it. I wasn't doing it for anyone... more
I have been debating for quite sometime now whether or not to remove or replace my implants. With the help of realself and numerous surgeon consults, I've decided an explant is the best option for me. Prior to breast implants, I was a large A-Cup (unfortunately, I do not have any photos pre-op). I went with high profile, 420cc saline implants. I was happy with the results (don't get me wrong),... more
For my own comfort I decided to remove the implants after 6 years. I had had a mommy makeover including a breast lift with augmentation. The busty part just didn't seem like me. Procedure was quick in the office with local and a mild sedative. Minimal discomfort after easily controlled with Tylenol. So far I am quite pleased with the results.
So I thought I would show the side view... more
First I need to thank this site and everyone who has posted. I've been obsessed with your reviews and pics.
I was young, had a child at 18 and had lost much of my breast tissue. I felt cheated that I had hardly had a chance to enjoy my young perky full breasts. I went from a 32B to a 32AA. Looking back they were perfect for my body type. I was 5'5" and weighed only 100 pounds. No... more
I had silicone implants done in 2006, I had no problems with them until 2010, after a car accident that jarred my back and shoulders. I have had ankle, knee and left shoulder surgery because of the accident. I still have back and shoulder issues and have been contemplating this surgery since 2013. I have reviewed many of the explants and lifts and have decided to do it!
I'm excited and... more
Hello ladies! I have been reading all of your reviews for the past few months now. Thank you all so much for sharing your stories and explant journeys, they are extremely helpful! I am 25 years of age and I have two children, both of which I breast fed for around 6 months. I had 600cc saline implants placed under the muscle summer of 2013. It has been just over a year now and I can no longer... more
I first had my breast implants in when I was 28. PS said they were a bit high, so he would re-do them two years later. At age 30, I had my second set of implants put in under the muscle. I was originally an A cup and I was so small that the recovery was extremely painful. I had to ice them; I used frozen peas which came in handy. I loved my boobs as I'm small on top and bigger on bottom,... more
Hi, just a short intro since I am post op and in a little pain. I'm 42 and got implants put in at 22. I was never really motivated by anything other than to make them even. One was a smaller size and I was originally a B cup. I told my original surgeon in Atlanta that I did not want to go over a C. Well, I woke up a D and have regretted my decision ever since. I would give anything if I would... more
I had my 250cc silicone implants for 4 years and 10 months. Hated them all along! They actually looked great but I just wanted these foreign objects out of my body! I am an athletic build…runner/yoga type and the implants didn't go with my body even though they were small. I am happy beyond words and feel a certain kind of freedom (as corny as that sounds)!
Anybody thinking of removing... more
I had saline breast implants done under the muscle in 1999 (when I was 35 years old) and was very happy with them for many years. I asked for a large C and that is exactly what I got. However, as I got a bit older, they seemed to get very heavy and started causing some neck and back issues....plus I wanted to wear normal tops again! I finally decided that I wanted them out. I am pleased to... more
