I am having my implants removed on August 5. I have been thinking about this for the past 3 or so years. I started to feel my left breast harden when I was nursing my first baby. I now have 2 kids and I nursed them each for a year. I'm terrified about what I will look like when this is done, but I know this is what I want. I don't want to have more surgeries with more possible capsular... more
Hello there, I'd like to start off by saying it is so hard putting myself out here like this but, I know input from others that may have either "gone through this" or "is going through this currently" is all that really matters. I'll be 28 in June and my implants will officially be 10yrs old in July!! Wow, how time flies...For me currently, it's just a matter of finding the right doctor that... more
I don't even know where to start, lol! My first BA was 25 years ago. They were silicone under the muscle. Then the big scare in the news about how dangerous and bad silicone implants were. I panicked of course and so after only having my implants a year, I had them replaced by the same surgeon for saline which he put over the muscles. I am thin and have very little breast tissue. Before having... more
Where to start. I got my implants put in under the muscle as soon as I turned 18. Ever since I was 15 I always wanted implants. For 3 years I was always online researching breast augmentation and always being envious of woman with large breasts and self conscious of my small boobies. I thought implants looked better than real breasts! Wow how that has changed. My doctor did a truly wonderful... more
I have found this site so helpful and other people's stories have helped me to make the decision of an explant; so I thought I'd write my story here as well.
I have wanted a BA for years. I had several friends and family members who had gotten them, and I was always jealous of their beautiful new boobs! I was still having kids, so I wanted to wait until I was done with that part of my life.... more
Will be explanted this friday!!!Can not wait. This is my second BA and last. I am feeling ill once more since my surgery and now forming hypertrophic scaring for first time ever. My doctor said that we should remove first then let breast settle and scars heal fully before revising lift and scars. I had them done this Jan 2014 and will be explanted 8/15!!!!!
So many feelings. ..excited... more
Both silicone implants were ruptured and needed to be removed. Did not want to have implants put back in. Dr.Herte was totally on board and knew exactly what I was wanting. Surgery was a total success. Breasts are beautiful and natural. Scars hardly noticeable. Sensation in nipples returned during first day of recovery. My husband and I couldn't be more pleased with my outcome. more
I am having my explant surgery in 5 days, the day after Mother's Day! I have been pondering having my implants out for years but could never get up the courage to do it. I was a 34 a-b pre implants and now am a 36 dd! I'm going in with the "expect the worst" mindset at first but I know it takes a few months for the skin to tighten back up. I think I'm as excited to get them out as I was to get... more
As stated in my title, I'm on a mission!!! To get these things out of my body! I have had saline implants for almost 13 years now. I had the done under the muscle and through the nipple by a surgeon in Las Vegas Nevada who shortly after me, had retired. He did a wonderful job! They are wonderfully soft to touch and I have the natural feel, but I cant stand how big they are! I... more
I had 360 cc smooth saline implants under the muscle for 15 years. I am 5ft 8" tall, and at the age of 23 thought I needed to have at least a C cup to match my curvy figure. Also, I lived in Los Angeles, where all of my friends were getting bigger breasts and it seemed pretty simple. I hated the feeling of having implants in my body the minute I woke up from surgery. I lost a lot of feeling in... more
I'm scheduled for explant on Feb 4! My right breast always hurt and feels like they're straining my neck and back. I have 400 silicone Mentor implants, over the muscle. I'm so excited to get my normal breast back! I'm 5'7" and 130 pounds. Breast size 34 D-DD I'll post the before pic now and after when the procedure is over. I can honestly say if it wasn't for this site I don't think I would... more
Ok. it all started at 19 years old. I've always been 5'2 about 100 pounds. I started modeling and notice all the perky B cups and Fake D cups on the other girls. I was the odd one out with my saggy C's. I always looked at my chest and just wished I had those perky breasts. I thought if I fill my saggy breasts they will look great and perky. I made an appointment with a doctor and he told me if... more
I went to so many consultations with ps, and they all treated me like I was crazy, and wanted a small forture to take them out! All of them discouraged me to not take the implants out. When I described all my horrible symptom's that I have had over the past 12 years of having implants, and 8 surgeries later of trying to fix all the problems I had .They all said the same thing the implants... more
