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
When I was 20 I had textured, round implants place subglanular to try to correct very asymmetrical breasts. The Dr did a great job and I was very happy for about five years. I went from a 34b (with the left breast being an undeveloped a) to a 34d.
After four pregnancies, two full term and twommiscarriages and twenty pounds of weight gain they are now a 34ddd or 34g depending on the bra. ... more

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
Two years ago in June 2010, I had a breast augmentation done. After surgery I was 350CC over the muscle. Everything went great and as planned until about 8 months later my right breast started to feel hard and it almost felot as if there was a bubble in my breast. I couldn't squeeze my boobs without feeling this ball in my chest. About 6 months ago, my left breast felt the same way. I had... more
At 18 (doctor should have taken my hand and told me to rethink this) I got 375cc from a small c to a large d. Now at 27 I regret it greatly. They feel heavy and bothersome, not to mention my left breast is becoming hard and painful along with becoming slightly different looking then my right.
I am in the process of looking into doctors to get them removed (1st consult on Friday March... more
