I haven't gotten my surgery just yet but after visiting the doctor there's no doubt I'm doing it with him. The staff was amazing, the wait wasn't to long and the Dr. Knew exactly what he was talking about. He took his time to explain to me the procedure and what my results would be like once I get the surgery don't. Loved it! I would recommend him to anyone. more
So my surgery date is coming up soon and I'm getting really nervous. When I was 19 years old I had no fear. Now that I'm older I feel much more afraid of things. I know I can get through it, it's just nerve wracking at first.

I had 450cc implants for 12 years and approx. 2 yrs. ago I started getting myself ready to remove them. I was mostly an A cup & went up to a full 'C' cup after surgery. There were absolutely no problems w/ the implants, I was just ready to remove them and I had/have no plans to replace them ever! I'm very happy with the post-surgery recovery thus far.
Well, I took the gauze off yesterday... more

Approximately 15 years ago I had a breast augmentation procedure done in Los Angeles. Much to my dismay, one of my implants recently deflated, and I began the task of finding a doctor to perform the replacement procedure in NYC, where I now live.

It's been a while since I posted any new info but finally I can say I'm scheduled for removal September 6th. My ruptured implant is now completely empty and I guess I can say that I have a preview of what's to come. From what I have read most of you have gone from either removal after capsular contracture or just removal of the implant. With having a rupture it kind of gives you a... more

Symptons ranged from chronic back pains, to joint pain, causing depression and being self conscious about appearance, and more. I recall the moment I had the surgery I wanted them... more
I got my Silicone implants in 1987 and was happy in the beginning feeling like a complete woman. I did it from being in the adult industry and modeling. When I got them i felt complete, society wise, accepted and became what I thought a true woman was.
The pros and cons were too much attention and feeling like men gave me attention from having implants. Also when having my children I was... more
