I had my implants done 7 years ago when I was 37...
- 10 Aug 2012
I had my implants done 7 years ago when I was 37 and although I happy afterwards and they looked good I think I was just too old to adjust to such a drastic change in body shape. My partner at the time was happy I was happy and he thought I looked great so for a long time I didn't admit to my disappointment.
Then one day about 2 years ago I realised that if I didn't like them I could have them removed which I had never thought was an option. There wasn't much to read on the internet at first because it was just before the PIP scandal but over the past year I have been so grateful for all the posts and photos uploaded and very encouraged by some really good results, without a doubt this helped with my decision to go ahead with the removal.
So a very big thank you to everyone’s posts and photos and I will post my photos soon!
Removal was 6 days ago(04/08/12) and I can't believe how quickly I have adjusted and have absolutely no regret. The day after they did look a bit strange with two big dents in the upper and sides. The dents are becoming less visible but until the swelling has died down and any fluid gone then I won't know for sure. They are definitely a completely different shape from before with a lot more volume in the bottom half but very flat above. Still I think they look good and maybe even bigger than before (but then after 7 years I am a bit bigger too)
I must mention that I was completely awake during the surgery because I opted for local anaesthetic. Mainly because I wanted a quicker recovery and because I was intrigued to know what the surgeon was doing. It was quick surgery with little to no pain but it was the compete awareness and rush of adrenaline which was not easy to cope with so I wouldn't recommend it unless you really sure.
I had 310cc silicone moderate profile above muscle which took me from 34A to 32D/32DD although they were supposed to be 34C. I had no CC and no rupture just a change of mind.
I hope this is helpful to whoever finds this post and I'm happy to help with any queries.
My Doctor: John Davison, MD, FRCS
I would definitely recommend having a consultation with Mr Davison if you are looking for a surgeon in Kent (UK). I felt very relaxed and he took the time to explain and discuss my concerns, the likely result and whether it was something I really wanted. A letter followed with a quotation and summary of what was discussed and I was advised to take my time which I did. In fact it was 11 months before I decided to go ahead. I had surgery at Spires St Saviours Hythe and the facilities and care were excellent and nice sea view too.
