Deflated saline implant after having them over the muscle for 15 years. After 3 years of breastfeeding, mistakenly thought I needed them. I really think breast implants make you look like a lactating Mom, so unless you need reconstruction, or like the lactation look, bad idea. Don't want to be a slave to any more surgeries. Insurance removing them for my co-pay amount of $15.00.

No regrets removing implants. So happy to be all natural the way God made me.

Just had my first mammogram without implants. WOW, they really mash real ones hard. Tech said they go easy on women with implants. So happy I took them out. No regrets (other than getting implants in the first place...what a waste of time, money, unneeded surgeries etc) When in doubt, get them out!

Update. Just had my first mammogram without implants. WOW, they really mash them hard. Tech said they go easy on women with implants, so be warned. So happy I took them out. No regrets!

My primary care physician noticed the deflation during routine physical. The referral was probably due to the fact I had some pain and discomfort in that breast and told her that. I hope you can get yours out also. Please update if you do.

I am having pain and a tingling sensation in my right breast. I had augmentation 23 years ago. Reading the outcome of your explantation has made me feel more relaxed. I think I am ready to have them out, as well.

It was done Feb 10th, little over a week ago. Really happy with my decision. Looks so much better without them. Other than anesthesia sickness, went smoothly. If anyone is in doubt, take them out. You will not regret it.

Hi All natural, and yes, doesn't it feel great to be "allnatural" again. My sentiments exactly, I had mine done for $0 and noticed yours was only a mere $15, how awesome! We can now go about our biz with what we can into life with , our own natural breasts. It's a wonderful feeling that's for sure. I look so much better too, I hear ya.
