I'm motivated to remove my implants because the right one has become hard and also I feel as though having large boobs isn't that much important to me any more. I do crossfit and they get in the way when doing some lifts and running is more difficult with them. no more foreign bodies in mine! The implants were fun in my mid to late 20's now I've just grown tired of them and they inhibit me in many ways. My right breast has become very hard and is round like a ball, while the left is still somewhat soft and becoming a little saggy. I can't wait to have these things removed from my body and hope to God I can make it through the first few months of unsatisfactory aesthetic results. I'm hoping they bounce back and if they don't I may have to go under the knife again and get smaller ones put in. I really don't want that though! Wish me luck, surgery tomorrow at 8:30am
Okay, so the surgery went great. No problems and...

I did my crossfit workout today which consisted of a butt-load of running. Let me just say that I felt like I was weightless compared to running previously with 36D implants in. I ran one of my miles in 6:13. Anyone on the fence, please just go and get it done. I want to remind everyone reading this that I had 6 consults with 6 different plastic surgeons (including the one who took my implants ) and ALL said I would need a lift and replacement implant otherwise I would be very unhappy and look really bad. DON'T listen. Make the decision to do those things at least 6 months after you have them removed. My right breast had CC but he didn't remove the capsules during explantation in the event I may want a replacement in the future. He said that leaving them intact would make it easier to put new implants in down the road if that's what I wanted. No Thanks!

At this point I have to say implants are a double edged sword. In one sense they suck because they mutilate your body (incisions, stretched skin) but in another sense they are good. I say that because they get you to realize just how great your body is after all (WITHOUT THEM IN). Some people, myself included, would have probably never gotten to the place in their mind that their original boobs really are pretty nice unless you've been through implants and removal of them.

Here's my 2 week photos. I went to Victoria's Secret and got fitted. One bra, I'm a 36B and the other I'm a 36A. Sooo, guess it just depends on the bra as to what size I am.
Well, it's been over a month since the procedure...

oh and p.s. scars are healing nicely. left one is a little bit more noticeable but I don't really mind. oh and p.s.s. my nipple sensation is better than what it was with the implants in. I hardly had any sensation at all then. I wonder why I have it now?
