I've had my saline breast implants for about 15 years, was a B and went to a D. (2 children before and 1 child with them in) The doctor drained them in his office so I could see what they would look like before having the shells removed. He pulled 190 cc's from each and I'm sure they are totally drained now but I'm not sure how many cc's were in there to begin with. It's been 8 days so I'm pretty sure this is my true breast tissue. I'm a little mixed right now because they are very empty and dent in and extremely flat on top. I hope it's the shells that are still in giving it a slightly weird pulled look but I think that what I see now is what I'm going to get. I also think that they are still very rounded on the bottom due to the shells still in. Lord only knows what they'll look like with the shells gone, probably worse, OMG!
I also don't know how he'll remove them (hospital being totally asleep or in his office under a local) I have been looking for pictures of any that resemble mine but everyone else that has had theirs removed look way fuller at the top. I'm almost regretting the look of them but to be honest, I don't want to get a lift because I can't afford it. It's very nice to be able to sleep on my stomach and feel "squishy" again!
Most importantly, I'm one step closer to being natural again and that's the most important thing to me. I'm not at all happy with the look of them right now :-( I'm kind of hoping for a miracle of "fluffing" after the shells are removed but I'm not very optimistic at the moment about that. I'm definitely NOT getting new implants regardless of how they look!!
If anyone has ever looked like this and can provide fuller pictures after several weeks, please please please send me the link to give me hope, lol :-) Thanks everyone!
PS - this site has been a life saver! Also, I totally guessed at the cost of removal, I have no idea how much it will cost yet.
I was finally able to do a "real" breast exam on...
