I Had Them Removed After 8 Years - New Jersey

I had my silicone, over the muscle implants removed yesterday and I feel great. I did not like having what felt like boulders on my chest. They looked unnaturally round and too high for my age (37), didn't move...plus they were starting to droop, looking like two footballs from the side. If I were to wear any form fitting shirts, they would just look vulgar and fake. They also made my proportions look out of whack, thick and short-waisted. I feel like I lost weight (I did!) and they feel more sensitive to the touch again. I can now focus on losing weight, as I'm more conscious of my stomach, butt, and legs. I am so happy to be natural again after 8 years. I don't want to be looked at for having big fake breasts and now I can hug people again without feeling those balls between me and the person. I look like the girl next door and not some stripper. I can wear a dress again and not have the tell tale 'ball look' in the front, but a normal tear drop shape. If you are thinking about implant removal, I say do it.

Here are before and after pictures. The after pictures are 10 days post surgery. I am probably going to get a breast lift in a few months. They were saggy before as well as after.

I have added the doctor's name. I must say, however, that he did not put the implants in..that was done out of the country...and there were no complications or problems because the original surgeon did a great job and I had an excellent experience to begin with. Dr. Rhee did an excellent job with the explant, however :)

To anyone considering this...just do it! I had a breast lift a few months later and I am more than content with smaller breasts and no foreign objects inside my chest waiting to turn against me and become rock hard or a threat to my health. Having fake breasts always looks kind of like water balloons on your chest. It is always a little obvious...especially as you start to age. Get rid of them and forget the worries of what can happen to them down the line.

I'm happy with my breasts now. The lift around the nipple was enough to lift them to a normal degree with minimal scarring. The doctor touched up the nipples to match exactly. One is still healing. I just feel a lot better without the implants. I didn't really like the attention or the weight of them. Thank God they're out.
