Hi ladies, I am scheduled to have my breast implants removed in mid January and cannot wait. I was previously a size 34A after nursing my daughter and went to a size 36 large B-small C with the implants. They are saline implants placed under the muscle. I have had them for 18 years and have developed capsular contracture on the left side which has made the left breast slightly higher than the right. My surgeon is removing the implants under local anesthesia and I will be asleep but not under general anesthesia. My first question is "Has anyone also had them removed this way?" Also, I am nervous about the final result. I have had them for so long and hope I can handle the different emotions that will go along with having them removed. I would love to chat with other women who have had their implants remove. I could really use some advice and encouragment as I have had these for so long and am concerned what to expect. Thanks
