I really need the collective support of realself to get through my explant scheduled on 9/24/14. Here's my story:
I was a late bloomer, slim, and had an athletic build as a teen. My dad teased me quite often about my lack of breasts and then would follow up by saying that I could always get a "boob job." We'll, at the age of 19, that's exactly what I did. It makes me sick to my stomach... more
I have breast implants that are 39 years old. Left side is ruptured from mammogram 1991. I have lumps under my armpit. My chest hurts so bad and I need these out. I hurt so bad that I can barely get out of bed in AM. I feel the silicone is traveling in my body. I have unexplained rashes, arthritis, sore muscles and joints, breathing problems with implant weight, lung problems. more
Hi All! I am so glad I found this site (nearly a year ago), as it has helped me reach the decision to get my breast implants removed. Thank you, strong ladies! I am 29 years old, married w/o kids, and got 350cc (i think) saline breast implants inserted subpectorally (under muscle) 5.5 years ago when I was 23 years old. Went from A cup to large B/C cup. My PS was great and part of me feels bad... more
A HUGE thank you to all of the brave women who have shared their stories on this site. Your reviews have helped me to actively move forward with getting my implants removed, even though I've been thinking about it for years.
I got my 350cc implants (under the muscle) 6 years ago right after I had my second child. I had my kids right in a row, so I went from being pregnant to nursing, to... more
Hello there to all you ladies! I love all your reviews ! Everyone single one of them! So amazing to me...(My review will be pretty short and sweet! ) I have had breast implants for 9 years. Under muscle. 330 cc. No kids. No weight changes really but for about 5 or 10 pounds. Im 5'4 and about 135 ish. I was an A or B cup before and a C or D cup now.
For the past 5 years I have been thinking... more
My surgery is scheduled and I can't wait!! A month and a half to go. I feel like I made the biggest mistake doing this 7 years ago. I am looking forward to having a small chest again so I can wear any shirt/dress I want without being self conscious. I'm short and feel like that's all you notice on me... more
My personal experience mirrors many of yours - I wanted my silicone implants at the time I got them (12 years ago, 34A to 34C) but now I am older, more confident and it's time to go back to natural. And I could not be more thrilled!
I am so thrilled about the idea that I'm scared I'm not thinking through all the repercussions. So please ladies, can you provide me with advice to deal... more
I did a lengthy review under Breast Implants, so anyone interested in why an implanted woman like me would HateMyImplants, you can check out my other review. Here I am going to try to keep it to a review of Explantation.
A little info: I'm 35, had implants 12 years. They are smooth, round, mentor saline implants. I believe they are 360cc 'overfilled' to 400cc. My incisions were... more
