55yr Old Replacing 20yr Old 240ml Saline Implants, Mastopexty and New Implants of 150ml Silocane - Gold Coast, AU

After 20 years of having 240ml saline implants it...

After 20 years of having 240ml saline implants it was time to have an uplift and replacement of old implants to new 150mls silicane. I had put on approx. 10kgs in the past 20 years and my boobs had become to drooped and too big. I exercise a lot and at the end it was becoming uncomfortable. It was hard to buy a new swim top as well.
When I visited Dr Downie for the 1st consult he told me that my implants had capsulated, as in my natural breast had fallen over my implants. I had been getting some pain in the left one for some time and realised then that this is why. It was time to get them out, have a lift and have smaller ones in.

I'm glad yer here too :) I have a feeling I'll be having a revision again @ yer age or if I'm lucky I'll get 15 years outa this set too, if that's the case I'll be 60 :) Hey I don't think we ever get too old to wanna improve our bodies and feel good in our own skin! Age is a state of mind for sure ;) Yer results are very good for so early on and good for you for getting it done and starting a review on here. I sure hope Realself is still around for when I'm ready for another revision in years to come. Hope you continue to heal and can find the perfect swim top for those new girls of yers!

8 weeks post op ????

My breasts are now starting to feel like they are settling. I have had to go back a couple of times to my surgeon to have my left breast aspirated, 60mls and then 20mls within 2 weeks as I had a seroma. They now feel so much better and the burning pain on the left upper breast has finally subsided. My scars are looking really good and I am still using the Fixomull dressings which I feel have helped the scaring tremendously.
