Full of Regret

I just had implants placed three days ago and all my initial worries/hesitations seem to be weighing me down now.  My girlfriends expressed how great implants are and how much I would love them, and I am not.   I am worried they are too big and just not me.  Is this normal after surgery or have I made a terrible mistake?

Hi, I am currently work on Channel 4’s Bodyshockers, presented by Katie Piper. Following on from the enormous success of the first series, we are now in production of series two. The show, made by Remarkable Television, part of Endemol (makers of Supersize vs Superskinny and The House that 100k Built), focuses on the world of body modifications, extreme beauty procedures and cosmetic surgeries and explores the growing trend of ‘reversal treatment’ within it. For series two, we are once again looking for members of the public who wish to either reverse a beauty decision they no longer want or plan on getting a new body modification or cosmetic surgery procedure. With both we are looking for people who are already seriously considering having a procedure to get something done or undone. Are you getting your breast implants surgically removed or made smaller? Or, are you about to get breast implants, a breast lift or any other type of breast surgery? If you’d like to apply for the show, please e-mail bodyshockers@endemoluk.com Many thanks, Sophie

HELP!! I'm freaking out! I got an arm lift ,saline implants along with a breast lift (around the nipple) on May 1st. I really just wanted an arm lift and breast lift since I lost about 50 lbs. The PS said implants would really make me look great. I regretted them immediately! They are HUGE for my body (360cc) and I'm barely 5"2. Recovery has been a nightmare with the arm lift, I couldn't do anything, I have 2 kids and a husband and I feel like I'm so selfish and stupid to have done this. I wasted all this money and I just want them OUT!! My PS went on vacation, (and I have a seroma in my arm), he told me he never did an explant without putting in another implant in. I cry all the time, I have to wait until he gets back which is on the 30th and he's going to try to fit me in. I'm worried about going under anesthesia again (he won't do it local) and I'm worried that my boobs are going to look puckered and deformed (especially since he said he's never done this before). I just want to crawl into a hole. i feel so stupid and useless.

Sweetie! Please, don't panic. I know I know...easy for me to say. But guess what? I've been where you are now. Would you like to talk with me?

Thank you so much, I've been such a burden on my husband, I don't want to burden you with all this stuff that I did to myself.

You are not a burden to anyone! I remember feeling the same way, I felt bad for putting my husband through the emotional roller coaster of my implants. Afterall it was my decision. But please know you are not alone. And this is a time in your life when you need your husbands unconditional love and support. I felt no one understood me. I felt hoity for spending so much money. I felt guilty not being able to pick up my small children. My husband struggled to be there the way I needed him. His solution was to get them out and that caused me more anxiety and panic. Remember why you chose the surgery in the first place...it's not an easy decision. But it's over. So now you need to work on your recovery, both emotionally and physically. For me, I had one friend who really got me through it. She would check in on me through out the day, she would encourage me to get out in the day. Make plans. Plan a child's birthday party, order things online if I couldn't go out shopping and carry the heavy bags, order friends or families birthday presents for the next month or 2, just to keep your mind on life! (And not the regret).

Thank you. I didn't tell ANYONE except my husband, so I'm hiding from everyone, I haven't called anyone, I'm just so humiliated. Plus, I have a very bad back on top of everything, and it's even more outlandish that I did this to put more strain on my already rickety back. I'm glad you had a friend to help you. My poor husband can only do so much. But when I showed him my new boobs, his eyes lit up like a kid at a candy shop, and I thought "well maybe I'll just get smaller implants put in". I feel like he gave me the money to do this in a weird way I feel like I owe him a nice set of boobs, and who knows what I'll get after surgery. I also got an arm lift, and they aren't looking the best, they look drapey and the scars make me look like Frankenstein. I tried the scar reduction sheets and I think I'm allergic to the silicone, which might explain why I feel like my boobs are on fire and they feel all itchy. I'm a mess, and there is nothing I can do about it except wait for my surgery date. Here I am a pathetic, whining. crybaby. How bad was the pain after surgery? You went local. or general?

I had general anasthesia, the emotional pain was harder than the physical! For about 6 weeks I wanted them out. I even told the surgeon I wanted my implants removed. I gave it time, and it's been almost 2 years and they are still in. I'm happy I did not remove them, I would have put myself through surgery again so soon, and to have to revisit them emotional pains of surgery was not worth it. I'm 115lbs, 5'6" and I got 360ccs, so appropriate size for my frame. Most friends are surprised when I say I have implants. Other times when I'm wearing a push up bra they look huge! I have 2 small children so I didn't want huge boobs, just enough to boost my confidence.

That's great that u like them, I bet they look great on u! What happened to change your mind from wanting them out?

I just got my implants 5 days ago and am also regretting them. I feel like they are to big. I'm sad, depressed, can't eat. I'm upset with myself for not specking up and making it more clear with what I was looking for. I soooo wish they looked smaller! I have mixed feeling because I've been ready a lot of info that it takes weeks for the swelling to go down. I'm hopping they become more comfortable and they start to look smaller. Otherwise I'm going to be walking around the next ten years wearing baggy cloths to hide them. Also upset because I'm now really concerned about working out and I play soccer. Can't imagine playing anything right now!

I can sympathize :(, thats how I felt about mine afterwards, that was 9 years ago. They still bother me to this day which is what brings me to this site on considering removal. I hope you feel differently as time goes by, unlike myself, sorry :(

I just had my BA one week ago, and I also feel like I made a terrible mistake. Is one week too soon to know? The odd thing is that beforehand I didn't have hesitations. I'm going through a divorce, so maybe it was a bad time to make such an important decision. Starting day 4 postop, I became so depressed. It's not even that I don't like how they look. I think they look pretty good for 1 week postop. I do hate how they feel - like hard foreign objects stuck inside my body. I hate that I spent my spring break bedridden instead of spending it with my 6 year old autistic child, and now I'm spending the rest of it so depressed. I let my son miss school today and forced myself to take him to the park to feed the ducks. He had a good time, and I tried, but when I came home, I slumped right back into bed. He also likes to snuggle really close, but we can't do that right now because I fear he'll injure me. I find myself bursting into tears randomly. I'm so grateful I have one more week off work because I couldn't imagine functioning if I had to go back this week. There are several important things I have to take care of this week, but I just can't bring myself to do them, and normally I'm a get it done type of person. I can relate to No Implants - I feel like I was happier with myself before and don't know what I was thinking. I feel like before I looked more at the good aspects of BA than the bad, and I don't want to pay for the upkeep with my time, with my money, with my son's mommy time, with the stress of worrying about MRIs, leakage, etc. The soonest I could get time to get them out would probably be 3 months from now anyway. Should I say anything to my plastic surgeon yet? I'm afraid of how he'll react. He'll probably definitely say it's too early to know.

Hey girl. How are you doing today??? Still feeling overwhelmed with regret? Have you gotten outside at all?

Hi. I still regret it, but I've stopped crying about it. They still feel strange. I still wish I'd never done it. Now, it's just a matter of when to fix it. Implants are not lifetime devices. I could wait until they need to be taken out due to complications, rupture, etc. and just not replace them, but if I start getting anxiety about possible health repercussions, I'd want to take them out sooner. Or, I could take them out within the year. Sooner might be better than later because it's cheaper, and there is a greater chance my breasts will be like they were before. I figure since I can't get them out now anyway, I'll see how I feel in a few months.

I've had mine 7 months and I still regret it! Don't worry about removing them this second, right now you need to focus on getting bAck to your normal routine and recovery. Do you have a close friend to talk to? You are right, implants can come out any time! I've seen tons of pictures were women look fabulous after removal. It's all about having a good positive attitude :) You need to do what is right for YOU and only YOU!

Thanks! I am wondering how to avoid a capsulectomy? Is there a rule of thumb - like take them out within 6 months, a year, etc. and don't need one? That's one of my take them out sooner rather than later concerns in addition to the way they will look the longer I wait.
