Hi, I found out recently I have the PIP implants and have decided to go with removal and no replacement - and no breast lift either. I would like advice please about how to find a good surgeon - not sure if someone used to doing simple implants would be skilled enough for this? Unfortunately there are no recommendations for where I live. Someone else thought perhaps someone who does reconstruction would be good? AND, does anyone have advice for post op care? How can I ensure the best results - would wearing a sports bra etc help? thanks!
Grr I just wrote lots and it disappeared! I...

I was just updating to say my surgery in this Thursday. Although I have felt lots of different feelings the last few weeks I know I am doing the right thing getting rid and not replacing. It feels like it is not who I am anymore if that makes sense...I was only 20 years old when I had the implants done and now 11 years later I am less bothered and shy about what other people think.

I have drains in which will stay in a few days.
This morning I was terrified of taking the bandages off but I really am pleasantly surpised...so far they look pretty good- or at least not as bad as I thought!

So I am just over one week post op now. I have...

I've started running with a v tight sports bra and massaging breasts with almond oil. I think I'm around about an A cup now.
For anyone wondering if they should explant, I think it is highly likely you will be happier afterwards, as most women seem to be, whatever your reasons. I say go for it!
It's been nearly four months now and still happy i...

My boyfriend said the other day how much better they look. He said he never thought at the time my implants were gross but he saw a photo I took before and said they looked disgusting.
I am enjoying running about 4 times a week, I am wanting to get fit and look good for summer and not feeling like a big lump with huge breasts.
