Anxious and Ready to get these toxic bags out of me - Boca Raton, FL

It has been 10 years since i got my breast...

it has been 10 years since i got my breast implants, i used to be 32 AA maybe even smaller because i did not really needed a bra at all. But i was at the time 24 years old and always felt very insecure about not having boobs, and it did not help that where im from i used to get bully by my cousins and friends always making jokes and embarrassed me since i was eleven years old all because of my small breast, i could not find bikini tops that fit me and when i was twenty four i look like i had 16 years old so i just want to look my age so in the end i got 350 cc saline mentor implants under the muscle. i did not regret it at first but if im honest to my self they always fell weird and painful i stop exercising because they always hurt and i feel uncomfortable. Now im 34 soon 35 im married and have two kids, breastfed both of them for twenty two months and now im ready to get rid of the implants i knew i want them gone at least for six years now but money and the pregnancies stop me for doing it before, i feel tired and constantly in pain my explant day is December 9 2013 , im exited and scared, my incision was made in the nipple i did not loose sensation and i hope i do not loose it this time either, will i look deformed? do my nipples will look weird how small would i be? im doing it with local anesthesia and im afraid i feel everything or i will have panic attack if im in pain.... anyone that has done it with local anesthesia please tell me your experience. and i don't know if im going to have drains on.

i will take some pics and upload them as soon i find my phone and keep writing after the procedure.

Nervous and anxious

im 5,3 and 130 pounds.

Talk to nurse

Thank you all for the support all of you ladies are an inspiration.
I talk to the nurse two days ago, and she was very nice and helpful, she anwser all of my questions and i feel more at ease. Picking up prescriptions tomorrow, got an sport bra and a Marena Surgical Bra with 1" Elastic just in case for after i get unwrap ;-)im thinking to talk to doctor to get the implant out by the bottom of the breast instead of the aureole just to not go by the breast tissue if he does not have to. I was one of the lucky ones that did not loose sensation, and i don't want to risk it plus im afraid of my nipple getting deformed.

Tomorrow finally FREE!!!

thank you ladies for such kind words and wishes. im nervous, happy, and very stress out about tomorrow. But i guess those are all normal feelings before a surgery right! im trying to have everything ready for tomorrow comfortable clothing, clean and organized house, hubby is going to take care of the kids and my mother is the lucky winner to drive me back and forth ;-), anything else that im forgetting? please write me to be sure the check list of all things are ready to go. i will try to post before the procedure and after. xoxo and good luck and best wishes to all the ladies getting the implants out this week.

finally free:-)

WOOHOOOO Good Morning Ladies

I may say i was spectating the pain to be worst, but until now no pain pills:-) the procedure was fine. the left breast was ready in not time, and i dint even feel it, the right one was a little painful i felt pain during but the doctor put more anesthesia and i was fine. Don't be afraid of local anesthesia it was a breeze just be sure your doctor put enough, but really it was really good no pain. also he even clean the pocket and check for scarring or capsule. the time when really fast Dr Pozner and the lovely nurse the assist him was awesome, after my husband and i even when for lunch in local restaurant:-) i feel light, i look way smaller;-)as soon as i got out to the front desk of the clinic my husband hug me and kiss me and say wow you generally look young but now you are going to carried your ID all of the time lol. best decision of my life after having kids :-) ladies do not doubt your decisions your body knows what is best and it really feels great. thank you for the good wishes and for keep checking on me i would post later after my first post visit and i would take more pictures.

two days post surgery

feeling great the girls look very wrinkling and kind of droopy, please do not discourage after you see my pictures. i know is going to take time to look better, but im feeling so good i don't care about that. as soon as my doctor give me the ok planning to start doing glycolic acid wash on my chest and coconut oil and maybe even some high frequency therapy all of those things help thigh the skin and renew the skin so hopefully it will help.

Some cool things that have change with time for small breast ladies :-)

Back when i was a teenager living in south america i never found cute bra because in south america they don't cater to small breasted girls or women later when i move here late teens and early twenty i just wore VS water bra and just because no decent bra for my little ladies instead of embrace your size it has always being push them up make them bigger but never embrace them until now :-) ladies these are a few websites the cater to US and love them they are i little expensive i wish the price range was more affordable ( come on they use very little fabric for our size :-) but is nice to at least have choices and ideas of what to wear.

the recent pictures are much brighter and now I can tell you did not get a breast lift, and those aren't verticle scars in the previous picture but some shadows... in fact, from your previous pictures to the current ones, you have really perked up real well all on your own. I see your doctor is the same as mine. He was really great with me. I did need a lift after the removal of my implants and he did fat transfer to my breasts as well. This all happened two days ago, august 11th. I would go back to Pozner if you are concerned with wanting a little more volume to your breasts but don't want implants. I am very happy with the fat transfer that he did for me. And you are so lucky you don't need a lift. I think you look really really pretty.

Hun, I think you look fantastic! Please don't think you need to get smaller implants. The difference in your update photos is amazing! I hope you find the peace that too need to feel great about yourself, but just know that we are our own worst critics and our eyes zoom in on every perceived flaw, but I honestly think you look so feminine and real and beautiful.

I read your review, I cant believe til this day some people are still bullies, many forget that hurtful words can be life altering and damage the human soul. I'm sorry you had to go through that but I am happy you are in a wonderful place in your life where you can accept your natural self. I like your attitude as you know there will be so many changes and that's great that you tell others to not feel discouraged, i loved the links you provided. Also had a question, what is the purpose of the acid wash and for how long do you have to use it until you see improvement, and when will you start high frequency therapy. I love the coconut oil on my breasts, i also exfoliated my breast with a scrub they were so smooth afterwards. They were a bit rough since I couldnt thoroughly wash them after explant. I highly recommend the coconut and bio oil when you area able to use it :) Glad youre on the other side now

the glycolic wash helps to improve the elasticity on your skin i do it every two weeks i stop after three months because i starter paddleboarding and glycolic make your skin more sensitive to the sun... but i actually going to start using it again is great i really like it...high frecuency im still using it is really improve your skin and if you add some vitamin C serum it help a lot to improve your skin it does not make miracles do my skin still wrinkles when i put my arm up but it does improves:-) and thank you for your comment yes i have my up and downs but im trying to be happy about being natural and give and be a good example for my 5 year old that when she grow up if she dont have big breast is ok she will still a beautiful woman:-) and to value her self not her breast...we are more than breast. hope you are doing well.

They look really good for 2 days post! From looking at the pics on this site, the level of deflation is pretty typical. They'll look great once the skin tightens back up and they "fluff" up a little. Glad to hear the pain is minimal, too. I'm having the same procedure you had, under local, so that's reassuring.

Thanks outtahere :-) post visit again on friday feeling really good today no signs of seroma ;-)
  • Reply
You have to be careful for the first 2 weeks, & up to 6 weeks for the seroma stuff. I'm so happy for u! I knew I would glide through the surgery. It's really not that bad & worth the little pain IF u do have any.

Like yours, mine were put in through the aureole, but I'm having them removed from under the breast (inframammary area). My PS said that going through the aureole might require cutting through both breast tissue and muscle. I also think that the aureole skin would be more sensitive than the thicker skin under the breast, but am not 100% sure about that. Just the idea of cutting the aureole weirds me out more than cutting the other skin, so I'm happy we're going that route and understand why you would prefer it, too. Mine will be coming out under local, too, so I'll be very interested in hearing how it went for you. Thanks for keeping us updated. As for what else to have at home for after your surgery, one thing I'm going to have waiting for me is a piece of chocolate cake. Both as a treat for all I've been through and to celebrate the birthday of my new, natural breasts. Kind of a symbolic little celebration and reward at the same time. Good luck!

I love the chocolate cake idea!! I'm also doing local and under the fold! I lost some sensation doing it under the fold last time, but my PS said it was probably from making the pocket rather than from the incision. Thinking of both of you! You ladies are beautiful!
