Saline Implants Removed Under Local - Houston, TX

Hello. I will be removing my saline implants...

Hello. I will be removing my saline implants tomorrow afternoon after only having them for 15 months. I will be sharing my journey on this web site. I made a very impulsive decision to get them done at the age of 30, for personal reasons... However, I knew 3 weeks after that I completely regretted my decision, however I decided to give them a year before removing them. I hope my story will help inspire other girls. Thank you.

Hi. I just removed my saline march 2014. One of the best things I've done. Good luck! It will all be great!! I too regretted my implants when I got them but gave them almost 4 years. That was 4 years of frustration and limitations at the gym when doing certain exercises etc.

Just got done with procedure

Hello! I just walked out of the op room and currently in the waiting area, awaiting my ride home. I feel great. The procedure was smooth, took 30-35 minutes. I felt virtually no pain, at one point the PS had to stop to give me a tiny bit more anesthesia... But honestly, it was not bad at all. I will update photos once I'm home and feel better. I'm a bit tired and will probably be napping today. Thank you.

Day of procedure - picture post

Hello, as promised here are my pictures of the post - op. I had my surgery at 2:30 and it's now 9 pm. So far, I've only taken Tylenol extra strength for the pain. I'm doing well so far, I'll keep everyone posted. Thanks.

1 day post op

Hello. Here is what they look like today. My PS said I could remove the tape and take a shower? I've seen other postings and never noticed anyone else taking a shower the day after, usually they make you wait 2 days. I followed the instructions but now I feel pain on the incision bc I no longer have any tape on them just the strap and a sports bra.

Day 2, post-op

Here is a picture of them with a sports bra on. I'm no longer wearing the strap and the tape on the incisions has been removed. Honestly, yesterday was the worst day, in terms of pain. I took Tylenol extra strength and I still had a difficult time sleeping. The nurse told me that the day of the procedure and the day after are always the worst... So I'm hoping today is better. So far, I feel less pain versus yesterday. I just took some Tylenol and hopefully won't have to take anymore until bed time. Yesterday I took some in the AM, the afternoon and before bed. I will post more pictures in a few days. Thanks.

Im sure they're not, but glad you are pleased and goodluck
I'm thinking about calling your dr. For the removal of my implants. Where did the doctor make the cut for removal and was yours under the muscle? Thanks! You look great :)

Two weeks post op..

Tomorrow will be 14 days. Here are some pics. I've felt much better. I actually went for a 3 mile walk yesterday. The doctor said I can resume regular activities after 2 weeks. I'm hoping this week of next I will be comfortable enough to start running again. They still feel very "fluffy" but not as soft as last week.

I used ainterol pueraria mirifica for a year I went from 32 to 40in without weight gain but you need to take it only certain times of the month for best results I found a lot of information on breastnexus forums.

Four weeks post-op

I went to see my surgeon this week for my 4 week post-op and she cleared me to resume my exercise routine. So excited!! I have attached some pics of what they look like now. I feel great. My breasts look almost like they did prior to the surgery. I don't feel any pain and I'm happy I did this!! I'm retrospective, implants were never the right decision for me and glad to be natural again.

You look perfect. May I ask did you wear compression bras, sports bras? Both. And when, night? Day? Or nothing? Thank you!

I am booked to remove mine after 14 months on the 18th August. I'm really scared. But your story and pictures give me hope that they will look ok. What sz were you before implants? And what sz are you now? If you don't mind me asking. He is taking my original crease up as it's too low and my nipples are too high. That's the part in most scared about.

Good for at going with what you wanted. I've had mine in 2yrs gone June and always though they were just too big. I feel like I'm fatter than what I actually am and lately feel so tired all the time and have no energy.I recently had to go to the doctors about anxiety attacks and have had councilling for it. The point I'm making is until inmlooked on this site and read up about implant extraction I didn't realise that there were so many other people who also had anxiety attacks and were felling lethargic since having implants. I was a 34c flat chest after having a baby 13yrs ago felt I needed a breast augmentation to be me again and feel good but in fact I should have realised and accepted that there wasn't anything wrong with my breasts. I had 410cc overseas and right now the more I read everyone's story the more I just want them out, like now. I worry about complications getting them out such as fluid build up and if I need the capsule out or if it can stay in ? Yousou d as though yours went really well and give me hope the when I do get them out (because I know I will at some point when I can afford it) itvbwill all go fine. I also would like it under local anaesthetic but worry about pain and discomfort? Any advice would be greatly appreciated and well done to you!
