My explant op is scheduled for this Sunday and I can't wait. I've had problems with the left implant ever since I had them done 4 years ago. The left implant was replaced 2 years ago because of capsular contracture but I've experienced discomfort and pain, at times, ever since.
I've been thinking about having the procedure for quite awhile now and when I went to see my surgeon he told me the left implant had flipped. That sealed the fate of the implants! He flipped it back over and the sensation was one I never want to have again. I felt so nauseated!
I am a little apprehensive about how my boobs will look implant free but I know that I am making the right decision. This site has made me believe this as much as any pain I've had and am grateful to have found it and to have read others' stories.
I will let you know how it goes!!
Well just 1 day to go and I've got mixed feelings...

I also think that having only had the original implants for four years helped with the sagging etc and I know I still had quite a bit of breast tissue. My nurse also told me that over the next few months my boobs would 'right themselves' and change their shape and appearance as they continue to settle back down. I think this is the thing that we need to remember - what you see after your op is not necessarily how your boobs will be. It can be a shock for some people after living with implants for so long, so remembering this will help.
I will upload photos post-op now.
Good luck to those who are having their op soon, you won't regret it! xx
