Back pain and chest pain/burning were not worth having them replaced after 10 years.
Pros: I will be able to sleep on tummy again! Back pain is gone, hopefully chest discomfort will lessen with time. I feel like me again.
Cons: SMALL again, painful post op. Long term wait before final results. One breast is ackward/wrinkled but will fill out with time, hopefully.
I'm uncertain of the final outcome, I;m bothered...

I am doing great. I love not having those things in anymore. I'm currently working through a "self discovery" process. I left my teaching job b/c I thought I wanted to go back to corporate but now I remember why I left corporate, but teaching is not the ideal either. How does this tie to implant removal? and other aesthetic treatments? Well. now I am aware that I have placed more emphasis on the material and superficial things instead of balancing it. LIke it's all or nothing. So I need to find balance to live a successful life on my terms not the socially accepted standard terms. By this I mean that I want to continue working with students/children but not in a classroom setting and not feel guilty about not reaching the top of the corporate ladder. Sorry for the rant.
Anyhow, I prety much look the same. I had very little breast tissue to start with and the implants kinda compressed it so the top half is pretty much flat and where the scar is. I also weigh less than when I had them placed. I am considering fat transfer but I must weigh all the pro and cons of that. I like the way the rest of my body looks and I would HATE to have a lipo deformity like a divet or rippling specially b/c I'm so skinny. I am still very concerned with self image that even if only I could tell, it would seriously depress me for a long time and cause me regret. THat's a whole other story. BTW I went to see Dr. Khouri in Miami, will see Dr. Ahn in NY next week. Will keep you posted. If at all, it will be at least a year before I decide.
