25 Year Old Silicone Implants Removed - Jacksonville, FL
I had breast augmentation in 1989. Having nursed...
I had the surgery to remove the implants with a breast lift close to two weeks ago and and am so happy I did. Of course, it will be about three months, maybe more, before I see the full results. I am just so glad not to worry if I will have pain on a daily basis or shy away from having a mammogram for fear the implants will rupture. Of course this IS surgery, even though it was outpatient. I had the Jackson Pratt drains, which stayed in for 10 days; I couldn't go anywhere because of the drains, and I was tired and did not sleep well without taking extra-strength Tylenol. In other words, when having surgery under general anesthetic, it takes awhile to recover and that should be your focus. My husband was wonderful about helping me "milk" the drains and I finally had them removed yesterday. What a relief that was. Now I am healing and feeling so good about my decision. I am looking forward to shopping for new, pretty bras in a few months!!! Oh, and I always wondered about the weight of those implants. I now weigh three pounds less!!
Two weeks, four days post surgery
I still am not sorry I had the implants removed. I worried and fretted for so long (way over a year) that when I came out of surgery I found myself with tears streaming down my face out of relief.
Three weeks, one day post surgery
I am so impressed with Dr. Fallucco and his staff. He is a very gentle and kind man. He explained the surgery options and told me what to expect. I felt he took his time with me and listened to all of my concerns. On the day of the surgery, he was right on time, came in to talk to my husband and me and again reviewed the procedure and what to expect. Dr. Fallucco's staff was so attentive, helpful and courteous. I have been treated with respect and caring. No question was treated with contempt, but answered with such professionalism. Amanda, Dr. Fallucco's Patient Care Coordinator and Hannah, his medical assistant, are delightful young women.
