How did explanting saline implants and a lift work out ladies? I'm 50, petite and in good shape. How was recovery?

I did my explantation on March 3rd, 2014. I did not do a lift at same time as explant because research told me that it could cause necrosis. I did do the fat transfer with the explant. My drains came out on the 4th day after surgery and my tape was taken off and second set of tape was put on. I get my tape off on March 27th. So far I am pleased with the looks of my explant. I used Dr. Huang in Denver, Colorado. The cost was $11,700. I do believe she did a great job but still to soon and don't have the final results yet.

Thanks for the feedback. I do wonder how common necrosis is. Is it more common with fat transfer, lift and explant? I'm wondering if the combination makes it more likely. Any good sites you could recommend would be helpful. Thanks again for any help.

It is common with a lift. Not so much a fat transfer. I asked questions on Explantation. Com and then researched on line about doing a lift with the explant. I just googled and found answers in different forums. I wish I could reference them but I can't : (

I am also 50 and only 4"11. Very petite and am recovering fine. Still sore from fat transfer and Explantation but the doctor had to scrape off tons of scar tissue from my ribs. Not fun but I believe I will be very happy with my results. I will be going to a therapist who will help me recover from scar tissues and help me heal better.

Hmm...I'm going to do more research. I know I need a lift because I needed one before I got implants but I also can't afford multiple surgeries.

Your plastic surgeon will tell you whether you need a lift or not. Mine told me I would not need a lift but if I felt like I needed one she would do it. I said "do it with explant" then changed my mind after my research and went with the fat transfer and explant. I pray only the best for you when you have your explant...

My PS did say I would need a lift. Your tiny, how did you possibly have any fat to transfer! I checked out your profile and now will view some other sites. Thank you so much for your feedback and mostly for prayer❤️

Believe me she found some fat..lol. And I have not been able to be as active as I used to be but I surely plan on being active again and staying positive. I will most definitely keep you in my prayers and please don't hesitate to ask me any thing. I will answer as best as I can. Take care my friend and please keep me posted : )
