Good Morning All. I am due to have my implants removed this Fri July 31, 2015. I have decided not to have the lift done due to scarring and the procedure itself. I had the breast augmentation done a little over a year ago and most of the time, hated them ever since. I had the silicone rounds, under the muscle. I feel like I look too boxy and it is the actual feel of the things. Every move I... more
After losing 90lbs I was still a 36D but they fell to the south! I went to just get a lift but was convinced to have implants, that being said and 6 years later. Within less then 6 months I started having liver issues (I don't drink) and through the years my health was getting worse. Going to every doctor and for them to tell me, "all the test were normal" and diagnosed me with chronic... more
My story is pretty similar to many that I have read on this site. I started out as a 36B and as a teen I always knew that I would be getting implants one day. I had nice breasts but as many of you know, we are always seeking to "better" our appearances. When i was old enough to get the procedure done, I did & was very pleased with the outcome. I did enjoy them very much, so I don't entirely... more
I am now at a point in my life where I wants to be free of these implants. I want to be natural. I will be a little worried about how I will look and feel, and the way I will have to adjust all over again. But it will be worth it. I am a little nervous, but know that I will be fine after I get my natural self back. more
I had an encapsulated left breast implant w/very bad scar tissue. Dr. Harris removed the implant, enough scar tissue to make sure I had no deformities, & also did lipo of the hips, so I wouldn't have to do two separate surgeries. The process was very smooth & I couldn't be more pleased with the results!! more
I just found this website and want to know as much as I can. I have read many stories and would like to hear more from those who have answers or advice!
I had my BA done in 2001 - 350cc saline under the muscle through the nipple. I am 4'10" and 105 lbs. I am 53 years old and in a turmoil. I was a 34B before the BA, nursed 2 kids so had very small breasts that just needed some filling... more
2010 I had 600cc silicone implants placed by Dr. Decherd in San Antonio, TX. Unfortunately, when I went to his office a couple of months ago complaining of pain and thoughts of removing implants I was told that was not a good idea. I am now looking for a good PS to remove my implants in the SA area.
Had implants removed yesterday!!! My breast look HORRIBLE!! But I was finally able to sleep... more
I had my first saline implantation in 1999 and the PS who did them filled them to a C cup, somewhere I guess around 375 cc. I actually don't remember but they were a comfortable size and since I was going from barely an A cup I loved them. I am small framed and about 5'3", about 120 lbs. and I still am. But I decided in 2009 that I wanted to go larger and I went to a DD, 750 cc's. At this... more
I got implants in 2007 after years of feeling inadequate because of small boobs. I was a 34C (not that small really). So I got implants and went up to a 34DD, a couple years later they got even bigger now up to a 34DDD or even 34G. Bras are hard to find and of course very expensive in those sizes.
I have 500cc saline under the muscle.
I've been going back and forth as to whether to... more
Well here goes.....I had a mamo done on my breasts about a month ago and this is where my journey begins. My right breast was of course squished beyond the point of no return and I felt a sharp pain. I went home and told myself that it would subside and it didn't. I just felt my breast throb and start to harden. Oh, the exam came back clean but the pain on my breast was still there.... more
I had to enter a $ amt but haven't really got that answer yet, I am at the very beginning of this journey. My story goes like this. I had twins via invetro when I was 28, afterwards my breasts were "saggy" the MD suggested a shaped implant to "fill" the top up. I went from a 34C to a 34DD, well 7 years later I was blessed with my surprise son:) He is now 2 1/2 and I got... more
I hava my explant appointment scheduled for March 21, Im getting very anxious and scared. I have only had the implants for 12 weeks and I have suffered physically and emotionally since. However, I'm having second thoughts about not replacing with a smaller implant. I'm 5'0, 100lbs and got 375cc. Any thoughts?
It's been a week since my surgery. I happy to say I'm not in pain, and... more
For years I wanted to have breast implant removal and a breast lift, and finally searched for the right physician. I chose Dr. Harris due to her credentials, experience and my comfort with her after the consultation. I am thrilled with the result which is so much better than I even expected. more
