I can't wait to be able to put on a normal swimsuit and not hang out if it, so happy to not have everyone, men and women, look at my boobs at the pool! I wasn't terribly overweight but when I really... more
I had imants placed 5 years ago in Las Vegas. Over the years I realized that with all the sports activity I was ready for my implants to be removed. I've known Dr. Melinda Haws for over 15 years. She has been practicing in Nashville Tn for the last 12 years.
I chose to have Dr. Haws remove my implants and perform a minor lift. I made an excellent decision.
COULDN'T BE HAPPIER!!!!! more
I just want to post my story to help others who are struggling wih anxiety over removing their implants. I got my implants - saline textured under the muscle - when I was 27 years old. I wanted to feel like a woman and my 32 AA breasts looked like a man's chest to me so per my mother's suggestion I had implants put in to solve my self esteem issue. From the moment I came out of surgery I was... more
So four years ago I had the surgey... Really just wanted a lift but got talked Into the implant...290cc. I was already a saggy C ..breast fed two kids and I'm Very active. I liked the boobies for about a year and they started to sag. I was told I have thin skin so I went in for a lift to see if that would help. It did for about another year. The last two years I've really disliked my... more
I am 59 years old and had saline implants above the muscle for twenty nine years.
I had Dr Gingrass deflate and remove them in her office. The whole experience was simple and painless. Dr. Gingrass makes you feel at ease and comfortable. I love that she is female and so easy to talk to. She also did my tummy tuck a few years ago and did a great job. I think she is a great plastic surgeon... more
I would like to say that Dr Nicholas Tarola surpasses all Of my expectations! I really did not know what to expect, but he surpassed them all, I am a very satisfied patient and I truly believe that Dr Nicholas Tarola is a gift from God to all of humanity especially to women ( in my perspective) who have to have breast reconstruction, he is a gifted man! if you have to have this kind of surgery... more
My implants were put in 45 years ago. In 1970 I first heard about the availability of breast implants. They were pretty new at that time. It was difficult to find a plastic surgeon who had any experience with them. I was very determined that I wanted to do this so I search until I found the right person to perform the surgery. At that time there were only three sizes to choose from-small,... more
I underwent a breast augmentation in Dallas, Texas three years ago, an attempt to alleviate severe asymmetries and unsatisfactory results after pregnancy and breastfeeding. Due to irregularities in my ribcage and chest, my new breasts (silicone, 225 and 300 high profile implants) were incredibly close together and, in time, developed a slight case of symmastia. This condition became... more
My motivation for explant involved progressive hardening of my implants over time, and a sister who was diagnosed with breast cancer. 3 doctors told me implants don't affect early detection, but I felt safer removing them. I selected a female MD in Nashville. I would highly recommend her.
I opted first for deflation in her office to see what I would be left with and to decide about... more
I am 21 years old and got my implants a year ago. I am really sick of them! I was originally a small B and went to a DD. (375 cc) saline above the muscle. I went to a plastic surgeon today. Mr. Griffin said it wasn't a good idea and suggested putting a smaller implant in... but that just IS NOT what i want. I am trying to find other plastic surgeons that will do the procedure in nashville. I... more
8 years ago I decide as a divorce present to myself, I would get breast implants. I have a small rib cage and told the doctor that I didn't want to look pornorific, I wanted to look proportionate and a boost in confidence wouldn't hurt either. I wore a padded A growing up and have a small body frame. So I got 200 cc over filled to 220 cc Mentor implants under the muscle. After... more
6 years ago I suddenly had the money to get implants, and although I had absolutely no problem with my natural A cups, I thought to myself - well, i have the money now, I probably won't have it in the future, so why not? I wanted implants in the same way I would have wanted a fancy dress: it's pretty, I can afford it, so why shouldn't I buy it? I was 19 then and I'm 25 now, and, like most... more
