Insecurity, Uncertain -Colorado Springs

I would like to say that I love my implants, but I...

I would like to say that I love my implants, but I can't. I can't even say that I like them. I hate them. I initially got them because I was tired of my sagging breasts but then I only ended up with really, really large saggy breasts. I had my saline implants removed, a breast lift and a little smaller silicone implants put in. I though maybe if they weren't saggy and a little smaller then I would grow to like them. But, sad to say, I still HATE them. I have seen a couple of doctors who have all, up to this point, convinced me that my breasts look fine and I would hate the results so I should just learn to deal with them. My husband likes my breasts just how they are now. I so want to get them removed but am afraid that if I have a bad day I will only hear an "I told you so" from my husband. I am going to keep trying until I find that one doctor who can give me hope and will support my decision.

Thank you everyone for your encouragement. I love...

Thank you everyone for your encouragement. I love reading other posts as they strengthen my resolve to do this. I have contacted two other doctors and have appointments for consultations. I hope I find "That One" that will reassure me that I will be making the right decision and the results won't be hideous. The doctors that I have seen up to this point have all made me think that the results will be gruesome and revolting. Thanks to all those who have posted pictures.

Hello Amgelrose83, my experience in Colorado Springs has been that most surgeons will try and talk you out of implant removal. I didn't feel comfortable with a lot of the surgeons I consulted with. I finally gave up and went back to the surgeon who "fixed" my original ugly implants and gave me more of a desirable look. He asked why I hadn't consulted him to begin with and I told him it was because I didn't want to hurt his feelings. He removed the implants and gave me a lift at the same time and I couldn't be happier. The Dr. I went to was in Denver and has an office in Golden. His name is Dr. Vath. You may have better luck than I did with consultations, but go with your gut and if the doctor is not listening to you or tries to talk you out of or into something you don't want then that is probably not the right doctor for you. Good luck. :-). Please let us know how your search and results go.

Thanks for the info! Nice to know you are happy with the removal! I'm scared to death... Yeah I had one Dr. here who said I should "keep my feminine figure" and that he didn't think I should do it because I didn't seem "sure". I'm like, "duh! how would I be sure until I've talked to a Dr. and made sure it was a viable option!" But I know he meant well. There's probably a lot of girls getting them out and in and screwing with their bodies. I'll get a consultation with Dr. Vath also. Thanks again!

You're very welcome. I repeatedly got the same response from doctor after doctor here in Colorado Springs. Dr. Vath listened to my concerns and wants and gave me a realistic expectation of results....and the results were better than we thought. He will support your decision, give you realistic anticipatory results and perform an outstanding surgery. His office is at the south end of Denver so it's not a great inconvenience. Best of luck to you. Again, follow your heart and do not let the doctors influence your decision if you know what you want.

I think you will find very few women who regret having them out. It's such a great feeling of relief once everything has settled down and you have healed. Feeling natural is the ultimate. Thinking of you as you make your final decision. Put yourself first. No one else has to live with the implants - only you.

Hi. I'll second what Angie has said. There are doctors out there who will support your decision, keep searching. Also, ask your husband to support you. He might like them, but you don't. And I'm sure your happiness is more important than his liking for your boobs. Personally, I feel like a million dollars with my smaller, natural boobs, and my confidence is now through the roof. I don't think there's anything sexier than a woman comfortable with her body. Hopefully he will feel the same.

You keep looking and you'll find a doctor who gets this. I'm sorry your husband isn't supportive of your explantation, but it's your body and you're the one who lives in it.

You might want to give these doctor's offices a call and see if they support breast implant removal. If you're firm in your resolve and the doctors can see this, they'll usually go ahead and do it for you.
