7+ months post explant update! Feels great to be me.. now implant free! Living life natural and happy! :)

I had my implants placed in 2006 when I was young...

I had my implants placed in 2006 when I was young and was only really concerned with the present, I didn't think about the future and made a decision I now regret! I was a 34A prior to augmentation and like most of us who have implants, I had them placed for a confidence boost and to better fill out my clothes and bathing suits. I liked my augmented breasts at first when I was in my 20's, but now into my 30's not so much. Also to mention I am a mom now and have had a successful 19 months of breast feeding! Yay! But my breasts have definitely payed the price and are now saggy and the bottom of the implant has fallen, what my PS refers to as "bottoming out". They feel so unnatural now and I wish I had never made the decision to have them done in the first place. I miss being able to run comfortably and sleep on my stomach. More than anything I just want to be ME again and be able to be active with my son without dragging around these plastic bags! Very excited for explantation, but also very nervous/scared about the results! My husband has been very supportive with my decision and says he will love me no matter what my breasts look like, but I cant help to still be terrified! I have a feeling it will be worth it in the end. Positive thoughts! Surgery scheduled for May 31st!!!! :D

Getting nervous after reading this I've been wanting BA forever , now Im 31 was finally blessed with a child at 29 I breast fes him for 13 mths now he's 19 mths old amd I'm getting the surgery nov 10 silicone under muscle, the ps says he will not go huge and unnatural looking but as big as he thinks looks good on my small frame! I trust him! My question to you is why did you decide to have them removed???

Thank you so much for starting your story. Your pre-op breasts were completely gorgeous and I truly hope you get them back to some extent. Even if they won't be exactly the same, you'll know you're all natural and that will be an amazing feeling! Please keep us posted as you get closer to the big day.

Here's a great post from Green Temple about her explant experience.

Thank you Angiemcc! I hope they will go back to some extent too :) Also thanks for the link to another explantation experience. This website has been so helpful in coming to my final decision to explant :) It's so nice to get to talk to women going through the same type of issue.

Awe thank you gliese163c! I wish the Dr's did warn on what time will do to your boobs!! Time, gravity, pregnancy and breast feeding have not been very kind to mine! Ha! Thanks for the luck with the surgery :)

Starting to wonder my PS said she wanted me to wait 2 months after complete cessation of breast feeding before explanting. Does this seem too soon? I trust her but I've seen other doctors on this site recommending to wait 3-6 months. Hope I'm not doing this too soon. :/
I think only you really know your body and how you feel if you feel my youngest is 6 mnths and i breastfed for the first 2 they are now settled and i don't feel they will change much now i'm having my implants explanted in 3 weeks.Good luck and your breasts were beautiful before and i'm sure they will be again :-) xxx

Good luck to you as well lisaxx!! 3 weeks will be here before you know it! Thank you for your advice! Happy explanting to you! :D

Good question, in the past when I've had boob surgeries I was told 4 months after the last day that I could squeeze anything out, not from the last day of breastfeeding, but 4 months from when they emptied. If you've been EMPTY for 2 months, I'd say you're safe though.

Going shopping today for new sports bras (the tighter the better). I have completely weaned my son but still can tell that I am producing some milk. I don't think i am producing much but I know something is still there. Hoping the sports bras will help make my milk dry up faster and figured it will give my skin a little benefit if I wear them for a few months before surgery. Wondering if anyone has any other skin tightening tips, I think I am going to need all the help I can get in that area unfortunately. :/
My left side is the side I can feel my implant on the bottom as well! It's such an icky feeling lol. It's all ripply and squishy lol

Hi, I breastfed for 16 months and I'm having my implants removed in July, 6 months after I finished. I was advised 4 to 6 months but I felt in my 'gut' instinct to leave it 6months. If I had them out sooner, I'd no doubt torture myself thinking 'what if I waited the full 6months...would I look better and so on and so on'! I think its best to do what you feel is right for you and what you feel comfortbale with also. Go with your gut instinct and trust in yourself and what your body tells you. Your photos are beautiful. I'm exactly what you say in your titile 'so excited' but at times 'scared of the result'. I think we have to remember, as hard as it is, that right after surgery is not the end result. We're stretched at the moment, then our body will get a wee shock with the op, but then things will settle and fluff up. Your breasts will then find their place. I wish you all the very best in your decision. I agree with lisaxx, you were beautiful before, and you will be after :o) Keep us updated x

Thank you rosary jam for your advice, I guess after 2 months I will see how it goes. I too am staying positive that after surgery things like you said will settle and fluff up. I wish you the best as well with your surgery. Will keep you updated and please keep me updated too :)

Made my preop appointment for 2 weeks prior to surgery. I had my implants placed thru the nipples, but have decided I am not going to have them taken out this way. Would rather have the incision under the breast so there is less risk of damaging my real breast tissue for future breast feeding success. Even though I will now have incisions both places I just feel is is right for me and my body. I have a lot of questions for my PS such as whether or not I will have drains or if the capsules will be removed. I am so thankful for this site! I no longer feel alone in this and want to thank everyone for their advise and tips! :) I am continuing to wear sports bras in hopes will help tighten skin a little. Might also look into some skin tightening creams to start using preop. A little over 2 months and counting!!! :D

Ok so I did some more research today and feel like getting my explant in may is too soon seeing that I still dealing with engorgement issues from weaning my son. I do not want to postpone any longer, but do not think it is safe to have this done so soon. Plus I found another PS in my area who is supposed to be great and is known as one of the best 'explant' surgeons. I called to see when I could get in for a consult and the earliest they could get me in was may 29th!!! I got on the cancelation list so maybe slim chance of getting in sooner. Such a long time to wait but something is telling me not to rush this. What is meant to be will be :) I really also feel I need to give my breasts some more time to heal from the weaning process. We will see what happens...I'm just going with the flow at this point and am going to trust my gut. After all we know our bodies better than anyone else right? :)
Hi, I think you're doing the right thing listening to your body. Only you do know your own mind and body the best. I knew I could bring my op forward but July 1st feels right for me. By waiting, you won't have any regrets, wondering if you should have waited the extra couple of months etc. If you have yours out near my date, we only have 3 months to wait and that's not long at all. We've come this far! :o) By the time Easter is over, you'll be seeing your new ps, then you'll be getting things organised for your op, and then it'll soon be here. Sage tea helped my milk dry up. I hope this next ps is the "the one" for you and you can move forward. Keep us updated.x
Reply
Thanks roseyjam! I will definitely keep you updated. Your right..I would rather wait an extra month or two than live with regrets. Thanks for the sage tea tip too! :)
Reply
Most definately. A few months seems a lot under the circs but they will fly and you'll look back and be really proud of yourself. Oh, incase you do, don't drink Fennel tea. It increases milk supply. I had to stop whilst my milk dried up but now it has gone completely, I can take it again. Have a lovely Easter :o) x

Got a call from the PS's office who originally I couldn't even get in for a consult until may 29th. They happened to have a cancellation and can now get me in this Wednesday!! So excited because the end of may is not coming quick enough. I just have so many questions I need answered, have been hearing so many mixed comments on explant from other women (mainly nurses). I guess it doesn't help the fact that I am a nurse also and already know to much. I think sometimes the saying "ignorance is bliss"can be true. That way you don't torture yourself with all the little small details :/ My main concern is I don't want my implants popped during explant. I'm hearing this can lead to infection and other illness because the saline after some time (years) can grow bacteria/yeast/ even mold?? Not sure about this being true, just some things I've been hearing. Also hearing that the 'en bloc' technique is the safest way to remove implants. Anyone else know anything about this type of removal. So looking forward to my consultation so I can clear some of these things up....looking forward to getting some facts that will settle my thoughts :)
Breast feeding with implants is no joke! I think you will love being natural again, and you will have a nice outcome.

I know breast feeding with implants is tough!! Can't wait to be o'naturaaaal again :)

Hey hun, great news for Wednesday! Going to be much better for you, being able to have your questions answered. I've never heared on en bloc! Keep us updated, I'd love to know more x

My consultation yesterday was great! I have officially found my PS to preform my explant!! :D She is double the cost of the first PS I was going to go with, (1,800 1st PS and 3,500 now) but she is going to make some small little adjustments for me that I feel will be well worth the extra $. Since my implants have 'bottomed out' she said I have the risk of having some skin loose at the bottom of my breast. She is going to correct my natural breast crease and while she is in there removing my implants she will take a few internal dissolvable stitches and place my muscles and natural breast tissue where they used to be per implant so I will have a better outcome!! (kind of like a mini breast reconstruction..without all the heavy reconstruction). I feel she is more than qualified at what she does, I was amazed. And just the fact that she is a woman and has implants herself I felt she really understood me and my desire to loose these things. Asked her about the en bloc, she stated not everyone is a candidate (and I don't seem to have much to remove) but she will also remove as much scar tissue as possible. She stated she will decide whats necessary when she gets in there. No drains needed @ this point unless I have excessive bleeding during surgery. She spent a good 30 minutes with me explaining everything she would do in detail. I left her office feeling confident that 'everything will be ok'. It's amazing how different doctors are. I am so glad I waited and got a second opinion.. Please anyone considering an explant who may read this always see a few doctors before choosing because some are far BETTER than others!!!
She said I would be safe to explant end of May. :) Something else that impressed me is she will place special shields on my nipple during surgery so if there is any possible discharge from the nipple (ie: breast milk) it will not contaminate the surgical site. I guess women can still have a small bit of lactation even years after cessation of breastfeeding when the breasts are manipulated.. lol don't know if thats the right word to use :) Fears and wonders are put to rest and now am looking forward to end of May :)
Happy to hear you have a date scheduled and feel better about your PS. I have one lowered crease and he may do some stitching internally for me too. I'll be waiting with you!

Yay! Thank goodness for good PS 's right!! Wishing you all the best! :)

I realized I never posted my implant size or details in my review...oops/sorry. For those who have been asking I was a 34 a prior, had 320 cc high profile smooth saline implants filled to 350 cc placed under the muscle taking me to a 34 c.

A little over a week to go!!

So excited for the big day! Hoping my results are as great as all of you lovely ladies! Ready to shake this plastic off my chest once and for all!
Thanks so much for sharing your story. Our stories are very similar....I'm scheduled for surgery on jun 19...I had a couple of consults with different PS, so I already chose the one...but I forgot to mention to him that i'm still breast feeding (she's 2 and a few months now... and it's just been so hard to stop breast feeding) I recently stop breastfeeding her all the time, now i just BF at night and in the morning some times... Do you think 3 weeks of completely stopping before surgery will not be enough???
Reply
Hi wantnatural! I know how you feel, it was so hard for me to stop breast feeding too! My husband and I want to have another baby soon but I want to get my explant done first so I had to stop. I can't imagine going through pregnancy again with these huge bags!! I was told by the doctors I consulted with that 6 months is the preferrable time to wait after breast feeding before any breast surgery but I was told I had to at least wait 2 months. By the time I have my surgery next week it will be a little over 2 months of complete cessation. They said there is risk of infection when you are still lactating. I think as long as your milk is COMPLETELY dried up you will be ok. Wear supportive sports bras.. Use cold compresses to help dry up faster. Also I have a friend who suggested putting cabbage leaves in your bra. I know it sounds crazy but there is some chemical reaction that helps the milk dry up naturally. Let your PS know too so you guys can make a safe decision about whether 3 weeks is ok or not. Best of luck to you and keep in touch :)

Hi, I managed to breastfeed for 16 months, stopping in Jan this year. I decided to wait the full 6 months. I just felt it was right for me and it ties in with hubby being able to take time off work to help. I explant on July 1st. I was told by a few sugeons that explant 2-4 months after breastfeeding is absolutely fine. I think it would be best to have a wee chat with your surgeon hun, just to tell him you've breastfed as the breast texture, glands, and tissue will be different. Sage tea really helps to stop your milk supply. I'm sure once the milk has stopped you will be fine as it can cause infection if you're still lactating. After feeding the breasts settle and can chage shape too as things try to go back to normal. I think that's another reason why they say 2-4 months so the boobs are more settled. Take a wee look at my implant photo's. Mine have changed a fair bit from my Feb photo's (1 month after BF) compared to my April ones (3 1/2months after BF). Very best of luck to you. Keep us updated how you get on :o) x

Looking for advice..

I was wondering how some of you post explant who are mothers with small children/toddlers managed as we are not able to lift etc. My son is approx. 25 lbs. I will have help the first 3 or 4 days, but after that I am alone with him during the day. Yikes!! That will be interesting! :/
Hi BecomingMeAgain, I live in Tucson too and I have just discovered this site. I am looking for a PS to remove my implants as well. My original PS was at May Clinic in Scottsdale and is no longer working. I have a consult w/ a different PS (female) on June 10th at Mayo Clinic. Who is your PS in Tucson? I think I may know, as there aren't may female surgeons here;) Anyway would love to know. Good luck to you!

I used Dr. Gwen Maxwell at Maxwell Aesthetics, she's over on River Road. She did a really good job and I'm very satisfied. She is also the PS who put my last set in. I love her staff and felt very comfortable there. I had some treatments years ago for Graves disease at the Mayo Clinic and loved them, they are a well oiled machine. One of the most important things is that you and your Dr. are a good fit. I've known Dr. Gwen for about 30 years, before she was a Dr., so it was a natural fit.

Hi Cmccartney! I am scheduled with Dr. Maxwell. Was very impressed with her. Had a few other consultations with other PS's and she by far was the best. She is very professional and caring. Her staff refers to her as an artist. I have my surgery this Friday so I will keep you posted :)

Feeling pretty good.

Thank you everyone for all your kind words! Was able to take a long nap and feel much better. Sore but have not had to take any pain medication yet. I did take some Tylenol though. Happy to not have drains. Looking forward to getting all this tape off..but Dr was strict not to take off until Monday. Feel so much lighter and free. I'm a little worried because my left breast looked pretty dented before they badged me up, but Dr says not to worry. Was able to take my implants home..I don't know how I was able to walk around with those things as long as I did.
Congratulations!! You will be fine!!

Survived first night :)

Slept pretty well. Pain is definitely there but I have a pretty high pain tolerance and got by with some ES Tylenol. Today took some ibuprofen. Hard to take a deep breath, feels very tight. My doctor secured my intramammary folds and that's where most of my pain is. Had a little bleeding yesterday (right breast) but nothing excessive. Hoping denting will work itself out and things will fluff out.
Rest up and don't strain yourself! As hard as it is having little ones, I believe taking it easy post-op is the most important part of the explant. I wish you all the best in your recovery, you look great already, even with the tape :)

Thank you luvrealboobsinor! I am trying to take it easy but find myself doing things I shouldn't. I promised myself today I will stop and just rest. I am such a busy go go go mom and forget how to slow down but I know how important it is. I have 4 more days until I go back to work so I will take it easy :)

Had my post op visit with one of the nurses today to have my tape and dressings removed. Feels great. Skin tight where doctor secured my folds but besides that doing well. Incision to right breast has small open area I have to keep an eye on but everything else is going ok so far. Taking antibiotics to prevent any infection. Feeling so relieved and happy implants are no longer a part of me. Will continue to wear my sports bras, skin looks a little more saggy in real life vs pictures. Thank you ladies for all your l

Postoperative day 5

Feeling great.. Pain is mainly gone, just now feeling the incisions. I wanted to post a picture a day just for the first week because there has been so many changes. Than will try to update weekly. Hoping my breasts will fluff out a little. Right now my breasts feel so loose and saggy. And I kind of got a little sad last night when I put on a tank top and felt like a boy. Very flat. But I guess I have to adjust. Noticed I also need to get new clothes since all my tops were for my big chest. I just need to accept this is the new me and roll with it. Still happy with my decision just wish I never put my body thru this in the first place. Lesson learned! I am loving the feeling of being able to breath freely and the touch of warm soft skin vs cold bags of saline!

Comfy Bra I found to wear post explant.

Hi ladies I forgot to mention I had gotten so many bras to wear post explant, varieties of different sports bras an surgical bras. The bras actually that close from the front I felt we're very uncomfortable for some reason. I found a BarelyThere brand wire free bra at Kohls,( have also seen at Target ) but it is hands down the most comfortable!! Gives you a little shape instead of the squished flat look of a sports bra. And cute too!! :)
What's the model number of that cute pink bra?
Reply
Hi, #'s on the inside of bra 4085/G289/HC89 but on the tag 4085 so I believe that is the model #. SUPER comfy. I bought 3 of them and am just rotating. Really comfortable to sleep in too.

Posted some pics today of my incisions, right breast had a small area that was not approximated post surgery but now looking better. Feeling great!! Wishing I would have done this sooner! :)
Wow, I hope I have the same results! It's amazing how much your skin retracted already. You'll look so cute in a strapless bikini top. That's something that I'm looking forward to, fingers crossed!
Reply
I know I'm looking forward to that too! I found this website that has bathing suits that are for small chested girls that make you look 2 sizes bigger. If you google voda swim it should come up. Really cute stuff and you can order the top only if you want which is nice because they are a little pricey. I like to miss match my bathing suits anyway so should be fun. I ordered one top that should come in a few days so ill let you know if its any good..or if their statement really holds truth making you look that much bigger.

I just checked it out, thanks.Yes let me know how you like your top. I think they look nice and I bet a little padding will be comfortable. Me and my husband are planning a vacation at the end of summer so ill defiantly be in need of some new suits!

2 week post-op update and new pics!

Saw my doctor yesterday because my right breast fold is very tight, but she says when the dissolvable stitches start going away sometime in the next 2 weeks that will improve a lot. Other than that I am so happy to be me with my small natural breasts! Now I look back at my pics with the implants and think OMG what was I thinking!!!! Did I really think that those huge plastic bags looked good??!!! Yikes! So fake and unnatural looking. I truly think implants are going out of style. So much happier now and glad I did this more and more each day! Looking forward to the next 2 weeks when things settle a little more :) Thank you again ladies for all your love and support thru all if this!! Will update @ 3 weeks :)

Anyone use this post explant??

Just bought this skin tightening cream off amazon. All natural, even safe to use during pregnancy and breast feeding. Smells really good. Was wondering if anyone has used this cream and seen any difference in the tightening of their skin. Just want to know if its worth it or not. Thanks ladies for any input you may have :)
You look great!! DO you feel that your breasts are plumping up more since the explant? Im so worried about my boobs sagging more after I get them out.

Nearly 3 weeks post op!!

I am updating a few days early of my 3 week post op mark because I am leaving for vacation on Friday and don't want to forget to update. I think now in the last couple of days I have noticed improvement of my stretchy skin/wrinkling. My skin is starting to get smoother and softer. I am so happy!! A little fluffing is happening too which I am over the moon about!!! Either that or the skin tightening cream I am using (previous post) is really starting to work. The other day my son laid down on my chest while we were watching tv and it was such a good feeling to know those huge bags were gone! I feel now I will get to be the active mom I've wanted to be but my implants always kinda held me back from that. Well now no more!!! I feel amazing and am starting to sleep comfortably on my side again!! Feels so good! I feel as energized as ever and look forward to working out again. So happy with my tiny breasts and love being me again! :)
You look so great!!! Congrats on being implant free and naturally beautiful once again! I use the boob tube and I don't know if its working throughout this healing process but things are improving anyways so I'm happy!

Almost 4 weeks post op already!!

Hi ladies, I can't believe that tomorrow will be 1 month post op already! I am feeling great and am back to my old self. For the past couple nights I have even been able to sleep comfortably on my stomach!! What a GREAT feeling that was!! Something I haven't been able to do in almost 8 years with those implants. Am also starting to feel comfortable in bras with a little padding again. Incisions are feeling good. I have noticed that my right breast is naturally a little smaller than the left..something that wasn't very noticeable with the implants, but I don't care. I am back to just be natural and wouldn't trade it for the world!! Maybe the left one grew a little more with the pregnancy and breast feeding. Haven't noticed any more smoothing or fluffing since last post, but will continue to use cream for tightening and will massage with coconut oil. Got a few new bras and am surprised to even have a little cleavage after all. Honestly expected to be flat as a board so was pleasantly surprised. Looking forward to continuing to heal and just enjoy being ME :)
Hey, you look great! Pleased the cream is working well too. You sound so happy :o) I have to say that PS's have been quite negative in terms of the outcome, due to breastfeeding...when it comes to your result 'in their face'! You give us all hope. 2 more sleeps left for me :o) Take care x

Hey, you look great! I can see they've rounded and have got a lovely shape. I feel your scars are much better. They've improved loads. 3 months have flown by! I remember I was a month behind you and your photos gave me so much hope :o) So pleased to hear your continuing to heal beautifully x

Very neat to see how much the breasts really do change and round out! Pic below is progress from week one until current.
You look fabulous. I'll have my explant surgery in four days. I really hope that my results are as good as yours! Fingers crossed!

Hi BecomingMeAgain! You look great! My surgery is approaching September 11th im having explant and mastopexy. I'm getting a little nervous. I have an 18 month old so I'm nervous as to how to manage mommy mode while recovering properly. How was it for you?

18 weeks post explant!

Your healing has been amazing! You have really fluffed and smoothed out to a beautiful breast shape. I think the areola-shrinkage is my favorite part of explant healing (with the implants they were in the permanent stretched/lactating size). I love small breasts with smaller areolas. You look absolutely beautiful and elegant. :)) congratulations

Also do you think the tightening cream helped?

You look really good. I had mine out five days ago. I look more bruised everyday. Did you feel that way too? Still have some pain in one spot on one and in my incision. Thanks for sharing your experience. Tjis forum has helped me so much!

Just wanted to leave a quick update as I have not been on here on a while. I am doing well. I am loving my real breasts. They get better with time. I feel that a little bit of my skin has D-fluffed but that's okay. I looked a little bit more fluffy after surgery I'm assuming because of fluid and swelling. Overall I am ecstatic about my results. I love having my real..soft..warm..breasts back again! :) hoping everyone else is doing well!!!!
Thank you fit all Your detailed info and pics - so helpful and you look amazing and much better x can't wait for my explant 17:09:2014
