I had breast augmentation with 400cc high profile silicone under the muscle two weeks ago. Immediately I knew it was a mistake. It simply isn't me! The reason I had the augmentation was because I was having a tummy tuck at the same time and it seemed like the natural thing to do. BIG MISTAKE. I cannot stand the look of myself in the mirror. Now I wonder how soon I can have the explant, and what I can expect from my breasts--they were A cups, never pregnant/breast fed--will they go back?

There is not a problem with going back to surgery as soon as you like, keep in mind you are still swollen and the desired look may happen in a few months.
Contact your surgeon to discuss further.
When to explant
This is obviously a discussion you need to have with your surgeon. On the one hand we often hesitate to return to the OR too soon because you just had a general anesthetic and you are still recovering from your previous surgery. Perhaps you will feel differently about your appearance when the swelling subsides, the implants settle and your breasts soften. On the other hand, the longer the implants are in place the more stretching of the overlying tissues will occur. There is no one right answer as this depends on a number of considerations that only you and your physician can determine.
