I'm scheduled for explant on Feb 4! My right breast always hurt and feels like they're straining my neck and back. I have 400 silicone Mentor implants, over the muscle. I'm so excited to get my normal breast back! I'm 5'7" and 130 pounds. Breast size 34 D-DD I'll post the before pic now and after when the procedure is over. I can honestly say if it wasn't for this site I don't think I would have the balls to do this! Thank you!!

I'm going to wait about 2 months to save up more money. It's $5,000! My advice to
Anyone getting a boob job, start saving money after the first surgery because you're gonna need

So my new explant date is March 4th! I'm excited and nervous. Hope everything goes well. I look at this site everyday for inspiration! I'm also calling Mentor, the implant makers to see about a 1,200 dollar compensation for my possibly ruptured right implant. Read your paperwork! Either way I'm so excited to get these bags out of my body. Thanks all!

Hi ladies! My not so fun bags are coming out in 6 days! March 4th. I'll post after pics when I can. I'm so excited (and a little nervous). I check this site all the time for inspiration and I really appreciate all the stories, pictures and comments.

They're out! I have drains in. Not much pain and relaxing. The right implant had ruptured and both implants had a lot of scar tissue. I am overjoyed they are finally out. I'm wrapped up tight and as soon as I can I will update a picture. Thank you everybody for your kind posts! This website is awesome!

These are the pics after taking bandage off for first time. They're pushed flat from the bandage. A little shocking at first but I know they'll look better over time. I'm already off pain mess just have the annoying drains.

I can't sleep so I'm stalking the boob site. I was feeling a bit down earlier because of all the restrictions... Can't hold my 2 year old and he doesn't understand and my husband got on my nerves. I think it's the letdown effect after any surgery. I might get my drains out tomorrow yay. Every time I check back here I'm so encouraged and amazed by the amount of women deciding for permanent implant removal. I'm not against them at all and I know a few friend that love theirs. I just don't think there is enough testing and follow up to qualify implants as safe for all women. It's such a huge money maker I doubt that will change anytime soon. So for now it's nice to have this forum to share and I appreciate all the pics and stories.

Hi ladies! It's been 2 weeks since explant and all is good. I finally feel back to my self. My back and neck pain is going away and I'm moving around a lot more. It was a rough 2 weeks but there's light at the end of the tunnel. My breasts look the same as the last pic so no new photos. I'm still wrapped tight for one more week. That's the most frustrating part. Did anybody else have to be wrapped like a mummy for more than a few days? Anyhow, can't wait for next week I can exercise and I'm sure ill feel even better. HugS to all of you and thanks for your support!

Hi all! Just an update. I feel great with tons of energy. My boobs are healing nicely. I saw the ps today and h e says they look great. I'm so glad I had my implants removed!

Hi ladies! It's been 9 weeks since explant. I feel amazing! Working out everyday and not tired and achy anymore. I am so glad I removed the bags! I don't obsess over my boobs anymore so I don't come on here much anymore. Thanks again to all of you that encouraged me along the way. :)))

Feeling great!

Hi ladies! I'm almost 3 months post op breast explant removal and capsulectomy. It's like I've I've gained 10 years back to my health. My back and neck and general overall health is almost back to what it was in my 20's. it did take about 6 weeks to feel the positive effects of getting the implants removed. It was around week 2 I was emotional and wished I hadn't had them removed. It's a very emotional experience. I felt like I had a masectomy or something. The first 3 weeks was exhausting. Now, I feel amazing. It's like a whole new person. My joints don't ache, I'm not so foggy and the fatigue is just about gone. I have a 2 year old so some fatigue is normal haha! My breasts aren't perfect but honestly they never were. There is some loose skin when I raise my arms but I'll take it any day over the horrible aches and pains and depression I had prior to removal. I'm actually working out at the gym again and loving it. I hope if anyone is having problems with their implants they get them out ASAP and just learn to love yourself and accept your flaws and learn to love them. That's what I'm focusing on everyday! Thanks again to all the beautiful ladies that shared their stories and pics. That's the only reason I had the balls to remove my implants! You guys are brave as they come! Xoxo

6 months out!

I'm 6 months out from breast implant removal and feel great! I'm happy with my decision and feel happy and healthy. No more neck and back pain. My clothes fit better and bras are easier to find. Thanks for all the pictures and stories. Without I wouldn't have been able to do it!

I live in Henderson and I am starting the process to getting these implants out and regaining my health! I need doctor recommendations! Would you refer yours?

Congrats, B! You look fantastic, but more importantly it sounds like you FEEL good!! Thank you for sharing your story and helping to inspire those of us on our way to explanting! :)

You look great and the best part is you feel great! It's funny all the doctors I have seen have said that removing my implants will not restore my health but none have tried to persuade me to keep my implants because I am so set on removing them. However, I have read so many stories like yours of restored health that convince me that these doctors just have to say these things because they sell implants. I did have one doctor agree that a very small number of women have an adverse reaction to having implants and for them removing them helps....go figure:) I look forward to getting mine out soon and hopefully having some more energy. Thanks for sharing your story.

I'm so happy for you. I hope you love having them out. I literally feel 10 years younger. I'm still going to the gym and going out with friends more. I feel happy and free spirited again. I don't know what those implants were doing to me but all of my strange symptoms are gone. Good luck to you. Just remember it takes time to heal and be patient. Have a great night :)))

So happy for you. I have no pics posted, but if I were to compare my breast before and after, it would be your pics. It gives me TONS of hope. Thanks for posting! I can become impatient, and I am only 3 weeks post tomorrow. Patience is key. And I slowly, things have improved, little things, like Nipples being non inverted again. My Health coming back. It can be a roller coaster but like you, never more happy they are out! Wearing cute shirts again has been the best! I love the NON stripper look!! :) Thanks again, you have great insightful words of wisdom of there! Happy Holding that little one!! aka lil Hoots

How wonderful to hear how much your health has improved!! I'm six days out and am really hoping my brain fog and fatigue get better now. You've given me such hope that this is possible for me, too! Thank you for your story and update, BHard!! X

Hi! 6 days out I was a mess. It's been almost 12 weeks and I'm feeling amazing. All those weird symptoms and problems are gone. My family and friends see the difference. I don't know how the implants were damaging my body but I'm 100% sure that was the problem. The foggy brain thing happens from time to time but I have a 2 year old haha. I feel great and I hope you get back to yourself ASAP! Thanks and have a great night

I'm thinking it takes a while to get the anesthetic out of my body and to recover from the surgery itself. I'm really hoping I'll feel much better over the next couple of weeks! Congrats on such a great outcome, B!

Great story! I agree with Verana about scars becoming invisible, mine did, I had implants for 32 years with incisions under the breast and they had dissapeared. It is a pity that I didn't take a picture of those scars to show! The implants went on Monday 29th and I am over the moon with my results. Thank you for posting!
