Hello - I decided back in 2002 to have breast implants w/a lift due to a new marriage to a much younger man and feeling very insecure about my boobs. You see my husband is a BOOB man! As you can see in my first photos I was what I call "snoopy ears" due to breast feeding. I had one of the best Plastic Surgeons in Pinellas county and he did an amazing job. I had 270 cc Saline over the muscle... more
I made the decision to have my 17 year old breast implants removed and not replaced. This was a very personal and emotional decision that was best for me at this point in my life. Although I wasn't having any major problems with my implants, they had become very heavy with one sagging more than the other. I just felt the time was right to make this decision to ensure my health in general. I... more
I first want to thank you all for sharing your stories on here. It is nice to read real, honest reviews about these major decisions. I am a 39 year old having 14 year old saline, sub-muscular implants removed. I was a small B cup prior to my BA and went to a 34C. The decision was due to my thought that my then boyfriend liked big boobs. He never told me or made me feel bad... more
My implants never looked natural. They were too round and large for my small, petite frame. I had them for 14 years and honestly wished I had not done it at all. So now that I found a doctor and had them removed, I was very pleased with the decision. Initially, my breasts looked so small and deflated, but I do not care. My sense of self and sexuality is not defined by what's on my chest... more
Thank you all so much for sharing your stories, pictures and experiences. For about the past month or so I have been following many of you and your progress and now feel like I’m well informed on what to expect before during and after the surgery, and how to take care of them after. That information is so valuable and I feel very fortunate to have stumbled onto this forum/ website.
I have had my implants for about 7 years..........I have loved them and hated them all at the same time. My choice to remove was based on gravity and riding horses. As time goes by gravity works against you and riding horses does not help so much either. I went to see 2 surgeons before I decided to go with Dr. Shienbaum. He made me feel so comfortable with the removal........I was worried... more

Hello I am 45 years old, and have had implants for about 9 years, I am average height of 5'5" with a small frame although I need to lose about 10 pounds right now. I was originally a size 34B and woke up to a 34DD after I got implants in 2004! My expectations at the time, recently divorced, was to have a lift- my girls were very flat and laid low- but the surgeon talked me out of it saying he... more
Hello lovely ladies. I have gleaned so much information (and inspiration) from your stories and I've decided that its time to begin to share my story.
Years ago in the mid-80s I decided to get breast implants. I wasn't terribly unhappy with my size (34 B) but it seemed to be what everyone was doing at the time. My husband said that it was up to me if I wanted to do it, but I'm pretty sure... more
