I had older, under the muscle, implants from 1999...
Finally, I got the money together to correct the problem. The first procedure was the implant removal in office with just numbing. This was tough due to the fact that my implants were placed very deep and high. It was somewhat painful but glad it was done! No more fake-looking boobs for me!! I healed well from that and almost could have stopped at that point. I wasn't as saggy as I feared!
Follow up today shows good healing, but area of fat necrosis
One month post surgery photos
Six week follow-up and Before Pictures Finally!!
Interesting side benefit....
Dr. Agha recommended a two step procedure, by removing the implants in office and then allowing the circulation to improve to the nipples for 6 weeks before the lift. I did not want new implants put in. Before the removal I was a 36D or 36DD. Dr. Agha is unique in his approach, as he has developed a lift called a dermal suspension breast lift that sutures the muscles so the weight is not on just the skin. This prevents future sagging and now my breasts look perky again! I have plenty of natural tissue and appear to be (3 weeks post op) a 36C. Dr. Agha has a video on YouTube showing his ground breaking method and that helped me decide to chose him. He is so thorough and follows up personally quite a bit to make sure all is going well. I have my second post op followup Friday. His office staff is also very helpful and kind. I didn't feel like just another number. I will add before and after photos soon!
