Getting my Saline Implants Removed Without Replacement - Boca Raton, FL

I got saline implants under the muscle 3 and half years ago. I was a 32 C to begin with and just wanted fuller breasts. Well, I ended up with too much fullness. Too big for my frame. I'm now married and planning to start having kids in the next 3 years or so.
Implants were 375 filled to 420. They are heavy and get in the way and have started sagging a little. I just don't want to deal with future surgeries. 

My surgeon suggested to remove the implants without removing the capsules since they are soft and very thin. I don't know how I feel about that but I'm trusting his opinion. He also said since I'm young my skin my go back to normal ( not 100 percent though) I don't care if I end up with flat saggy boobs I just don't want to deal with foreign objects in my body anymore. I'm thinking about getting a lift later on down the road.
Ill post pictures soon.

Ok Today was the second day with empty boobies. They are saggy and my skin has stretched out on the upper pole. They don't look anything like they did before breast augmentation. My nipples and areola look horrible. Thy are stretched out. I def need an areola reduction later on. I don't know if I'm a candidate for a lift. I'm gonna wait for at least 6 months before I made a decision. My surgeon knows I'm planning on having kids so he suggested not to do anything until after that. I love his honesty and he's an excellent plastic surgeon. My first BA was with another doctor. He did a good job but my mistake was that I left the size up to him. He chose too big of implants for me but I can't change the past.

Today is the 3rd day post op. I feel great. Last night I was in so much pain. But today I feel much better. I am using a firming lotion from Clarins on the upper pole of my breast to help the skin retract. I also have a glycolic peel that I'm using to help with skin tightning and collagen production. I hope they get better. Ill post more pix today

I also had a consultation for fat grafting to my breasts...it seems like a great idea but I don't have alot of excess fat. Plus I'm afraid to do it..ill just wait and see how my boobies look in 6 months to a year..

Natural is good ! Light and free ! I wish someone could tell me this when I was young and made the decision to get implants. I feel so confident now without my giant boobs. I can't wait to get on the treadmill and start working out without my boobs getting in the way !!!

I'm very happy that I removed my implants. Of course I wish I never got them in the first place but I can not redo the past. What's done is done. I'm happy and thankful that I have my health ! At this point in my life I feel comfortable and confident in my skin even though I'm far from perfect. I used to be so active but the implants weighed me down so much ... I've already started working out and feel a big difference. Still taking it easy thought. My breasts my not be perfect right now due to having the implants in place for a while but I don't care . I love being natural !!!

11 days

11 days already. I've bought some new bras :) all 32 D ! I look SOOOO much better in clothes ! I look a lot slimmer than what I was before too !
I keep using skin care on my breasts to help my skin heal. Even though I bought new bras I try to avoid wearing regular bras unless if I have to. My stitches are still kinda sensitive and I don't want to put too much pressure on them.

5 months post

It's been five and a half month since I got my implants out. My skin has retracted so much and the scar under the fold of my breast is almost gone. I'm so glad I got the implants out. I feel great great ! I don't have to carry the weight on my chest anymore. I'm all me and I love it !
