Ive spent months reading reviews on here and looking at pics. I had implants in 2008 and in June 2012 found out both had ruptured due to capsular contracture. Up until that point I loved the way they looked although I was in discomfort with them. I was really upset to have to get them out but I knew I had no choice and i was told i was at high risk of capsular contracture again if i replaced them. I am not in a financial position to take any risks with it so decided not to get them replaced.
I paid for an uplift which was done at the same time as removal. I had it done on 2nd January and am still coming to terms with it. It's been 4 weeks tomorrow and I have days where I hate them a d days when I think they are ok. In the end during surgery the surgeon decided not to do an anchor lift as he felt it wasn't needed so he just took a little excess skin from around the nipple on one and under the breast on both.
My scars are still very red and bumpy but he said I can use oil/lotion to massage at 4 weeks so will start that tomorrow. I am a bit upset that I paid for an uplift but I am still saggy in myopinion but then I am glad I didn't need more scars. There is one problem which I need to talk to the surgeon about when I see him in 4 weeks, the nipple he cut and sewed back up (which is on my smaller emptier breast) has a funny crease on it, I will post pics, if anyone knows what this is I'd like to know?
Overall I don't think I've made my mind up yet with how I feel but that probably takes time.
