47 Year Old, Mother of 3. Ruptured Saline Implant Exchange - Baton Rouge, LA

I have had 400cc saline implants for about 12...

I have had 400cc saline implants for about 12 years, with a slow leak in my right one for about 5 years. Recently, the leaking one completely ruptured and I had a couple of consults, eventually deciding to go with Dr. Gruenwald in Baton Rouge, LA. I knew I wanted to have my implants replaced with high profile silicone, as my salines rippled badly and always felt like water balloons sloshing around on my chest. I also wanted to go a little larger, but didn't want to look like a porn star, so I was shocked to learn that every single "dream pic" of boobies I showed Dr. G, he said were at least 550cc's...holy shit that's huge! But he assured me that the boobs I was saying I wanted, were indeed "huge". I trusted his judgement but told him not to go over 600cc's. Well, I am 8 days post op with a whooping 600cc's of boobies strapped to my little 5'5" inch 112lb body and I LOVE them. They do feel heavy at the moment, but they look great and feel like soft, pillowy real boobs. I am having more post op pain than I remember having with my other BA's, I've had two previous. I am still taking pain meds, ribs feel bruised. Maybe they had to really pry me open to put that size of an implant in? Anyway, I am very pleased with my results! Love them!

11 days post op love them!

Day 13!

If they ate over the muscle to you get rippling and feel the implant itself?

Where were your incisions made? If they were areolar then the incisions healed quickly as I see none in your 4 days po pics.

My incisions are underneath

Wow, you look great! You carry your implants nicely considering you're rather petite. It's interesting your original implant slowly leaked for 5 years until it finally ruptured. Was it difficult at first to tell that it was leaking?

Feel free to continue your recovery with other members that have had their breast implant revision in July 2014. Keep us posted!

They look great! can't wait to see more pics. I also have a ruptured saline implant. How did you feel ? And how long did you wait before your revision?

Thank you! I has a slow leak in one boob for about 4 years that was only noticeable to me. Although, the last two years both of them looked HORRIBLE when I was lying down, like they had slipped out of their pocket. Regarding how I felt, I had no health issues at all. I had my revision about a month after I had a total blow-out in the leaky boob!

Wow slow leak for 4 years... Thank God you had no health issues. Did it hurt before you had the revision?
  • Reply
Not hurt really. When I was lying down it was uncomfortable, unless I wore a sports bra to keep it in place. Like it wasn't secure or something. I had gotten accustomed to it really and would automatically hold it up with my hand when I laid down! Until, of course, when it all leaked out one day
