eleven years ago i had breast implants, and i have never regretted this. they gave me the confidence i desperately needed at the time. when i got them, i was told they should last forever, since then the advice has changed to 10 to 15 years, and i can see why. i have noticed over the last year or so they feel harder, have slightly changed shape, and seem to feel cold to me, and more 'fake'. since the pip scandal broke, i have been worried about what i have in my body. mine are not pips, they are mcghan, but it just goes to show the industry has not been regulated enough. they hurt when i sleep on my back, im sick of not being able to lie on my front, i worry my husband thinks they are hard, and i just want rid of them. tomorrow i am seeing a surgeon to start the process of having them removed. im very worried that my boobs will look a mess afterwards, but i know my husband loved me before implants, with implants, and will love me without them again. ive also had three kids since i had them, and at 34, i dont think ill be starting a career as a page 3 girl. so i feel very nervous about tomorrow, im worried the surgeon will want me to replace them instead of remove them, im worried it means im seriously doing it. however, i want to say thanks to all the ladies on here, you have given me the confidence to go through with this procedure. im a bit obsessed with this site, my husband is always catching me looking at boobs on here, wrong way round i guess? ill take and post some pictures when i have more time, and hopefully tomorrow will feel like a positive step, not a scary one....

So, the consultation went well, in fact the surgeon even said he thought I'd made the right decision. Slight complication is I have slight capsular contracture in my right breast and so will at least need partial capsulectomy. I'm seeing another surgeon on Saturday as I think it's the right thing to do to get another opinion. I have uploaded some photos though.

Hey ladies, thanks to you guys I am now booked in for October 16th. Nervous, but cannot wait to get these weights off my chest! Bring on the soft weenies! X

Well, two weeks tomorrow I'll be having my op. I'm apprehensive, mainly because I have 3 young sons who depend on me. Thanks to the brilliant reviews from the lovely ladies on this site, I'm aware I'll look 'deflated' afterwards, but I'm sure they'll fluff up nicely like everybody else's. Mainly I can't wait to have nice soft warm boobies (the coldness of implants disturbs me), can't wait to be able to lie on my front without being in pain, and can't wait to get close to mr b without worrying these hard rocks are going to burst if he squeezes me! Here's hoping the next two weeks fly by... X

Paid for my op today! No going back now, bit nervous, but mainly just can't wait for it to all be over! X

You ladies are so lovely! Well, the op went well,...

You ladies are so lovely! Well, the op went well, the surgeon said he'd had to take all of my capsules as they were were quite thick! Result is they now feel lovely and soft, but smaller than I'd imagined! I'm not really bothered, I still have a handful, and my husband says he's got the real me back, bless him. I have done nothing but sleep, I have never been so tired in my life! I have a bit of soreness, guess its bruising on the inside. My kids don't seem to have noticed anything so far, I asked my six year old if he noticed anything different about mummy, he looked me up and down and said 'yeah, you've got pyjamas on'. I feel most comfortable without a sports bra at the moment, so I'm sticking to that, and I have plasters over my incisions, which are annoying me, because on one side the nurse put it quite high up which is giving my boob a really weird shape cos it's on too tight! And I have to keep them on till I go back to the dressing clinic in two weeks! So I might take a picture of the boob that hasn't been deformed by the plaster, but I'm not taking any of the other till the bloody things are off! What do I feel most? RELIEF. Xx

Where, oh where is the fluffing fairy? I have two cherries on an ironing board! Serious fluffing needed! Am trying to wean myself off the paracetamols and ibuprofen today, as I have hardly any pain. My husband just changed my dressings cos I got them slightly wet in the bath, was very impressed with my scar! Tiny, and very neat! My right breast is shaping nicely, but the left is taking its time as the first dressing was too tight, I can't help worrying that it will 'set' like this! Luckily my boobies are small enough for me you not wear a bra for a while after my dressings are removed, that was gravity should help! X

well its now 7 weeks since i got rid of the drag queen boobies. i have very little tenderness, but they seem to be getting smaller and smaller, though i have lost weight in general. they ar elooking more symmetrical now, though they still have a way to go. still very glad im natural and soft again!

Great thanks! I just love every day waking up with natural breasts! Every time I used to get an ache or pain somewhere in my body my first thought was "Oh no is it the silicone??!" No more worries like that anymore...Hurray!! xx

Hi Mrs B. You're looking fantastic. What a long way we've come. It's great to hear all the updates. I had a ridge on my left side but that's sorted itself out and I'm happier than ever. All the best. X

Glad to hear that laineylou, mine is still there but it's only been 7 weeks. I had a look at your photos, you look amazing now the ridge has vanished, hopefully mine will too over time. X

Hi MrsB- You look great! I am wondering if your doctor gave you a reason for why you had the ridge on the left breast? The reason I ask is that I am being explanted on Dec. 21 and am worried I am going to have a ridge where the original doctor lowered my crease. In any case, the fact that yours has smoothed out is encouraging to me!

Hey tinkerbell123, he didn't give a reason, but he wasn't concerned on my follow up visit, he said don't worry it will sort itself out, and he's right! I wonder if it's because in that breast the implant was sitting right at the bottom so the breast tissue there is taking longer to fluff up? Have a look at laineylou's review, she had one too that was still there at 8 weeks, but by 15 weeks it had totally gone, and she looks amazing now! She is my inspiration when I worry about the ridge! And good luck with your surgery, I hope you're planning a restful Christmas! X

mrs b in nottingham. so glad i found your review. Am having my implants removed after having them in place for 12 yrs mainly due to CC in both breasts. Due for surgery on the 4th Dec with mr Spyrou, also having a capsulectomy in both breasts. I'm absolutely terrified of the end result cos i was pretty flat chested before i had the implants. Another thing what concerned me is i couldn't seem to find anyone else who had had surgery with Mr Syprou. Your rating appears good so that's lessened my anxiety some. Hope your left breast rectifies its self x

Hi mcal42, you probably won't read this till after your surgery, but you are in good hands. I need to put some recent photos on, my left breast has increased a lot, and my right one has shrunk to the same size so they look much more symmetrical, it must've had a lot of swelling as the cc was worse in that one. So I'm much happer with the outcome. Mr spyrou said I could wear bras with underwires after a month, and I can, with very little soreness at the end of the day. But I do go bra-less with just a vest some days, or wear a sports bra to give them a rest. So, don't worry about tomorrow, just rest rest rest, and expect them to take months to get to their best. I'll upload some photos now. Good luck! X

Sorry for the delay melvirginia, my implants were over the muscle. It's amazing how quickly I've got used to having weenies! I love them, and the left one is looking better by the day! How are you getting on?
  • Reply
I'm doing well, thank you. Drains out tomorrow and can not wait! My left breast is different from my right as well. Has a bit of a dip or crease up near armpit. Little early to know what will be end result, but you look great! Amazing how most of us do not look as bad as we feared? Glad you are so well. Thanks for getting back as I was wondering if there was a difference in post implant breast shape with regard to where the implant was placed. Still not sure if it makes a difference in final outcome!

You look fabulous! Perhaps you said and I overlooked it, but were your implants over or under the muscle?

Hi Mrs B. You look fantastic. Try not to worry about the ridge, I have that as well. I'm now 3 months post explant and it's working its way out. I've not updated my profile for a while but there are a couple of pics with the ridge. Hoping the fluff fairy arrives soon. Take care. X

You look absolutely wonderful. I have a bit of the same issue on one side but I have seen ladies' pictures where they had this and it worked itself out by 3 months. In my humble opinion you look amazing.

Thanks so much byeimplants, I feel much more like me, and generally healthier! Wish I'd got rid of them sooner! X

I think that too sometimes. But I think we all need to wait to explant until we are absolutely ready. For us it was now.

Hi Mrs b, thanks for your post you left on my review. Really appreciate it. How are you getting on now? Hope your feeling abit better. Has the fluffing fairy arrived in Nottingham yet? x

hi demi1996, the fluffing fairy is working slowly i reckon! my breasts look smaller than just after the surgery, but feel much firmer, and the skin has amazingly shrunk back! ive put some pictures on, as you can see they look very different to each other! im hoping after the dressings come off on wednesday my left one will start to settle lower so it looks more like the right?! i think in 6 months time theyll look much better. im not expecting perfect symetry, but as long as its not too noticeable or obvious ill be happy. how are you getting on now? any better? x

Hi mrs b, You look fantastic! You seem to have alot of breast tissue left. I'm so happy for you. As for me, the weird shape has lessened but they're very flat. Never mind, padded bras look good and I can wear alot more clothes now without looking so busty!! xx

Glad you are feeling so well, and wishing the fluffing fairy your way. I'm only down the road from you, and the same age!! Due for my op a week tomorrow.
