Had first implant in 1998 at age of 37, five years...
Had first implant in 1998 at age of 37, five years later after suffering capsular contracture in one breast had them replaced with smaller implants and a breast lift. Both of these procedures were done at The Hospital Group in Birmingham. Ten years down the line at 53 decided wanted done with implants altogether. I made a conscious decision not to return to Hospital Group as felt the place was more suited to 'footballers wives' flashy and lavish surrounding rather than medical. After much research and with the help of this site decided to go with Aurora Clinics in Northampton. They were totally professional from start to finish with no attempt to push me into replacing and no hard sell. Mr Adrian Richards was excellent.
I was under no illusion that after being through two procedures my boobies would look pretty sad and deflated once implants were out and they certainly were! After the initial shock and tears I have kinda come to terms with it in only two weeks. The softness of them is amazing. You have got to get your head in the right place to accept them and to think that I have not got to go through this again is wonderful. Wouldn't be a good look to have boobies under my chin at 60! Four weeks to go and I will be shopping for underwired push ups!

Returned to clinic yesterday for final check up at 7 weeks post op. [It was delayed for a week because Mr Richards was out of the country.] Everything ok and was told I can resume my usual exercise routine and shop for new bras! I am delighted with outcome and although they are considerably smaller they are so soft and cute! I have not posted any pics but if you go on Aurora clinic site there are plenty of photos on there and mine will be joining them soon as they took 'after' pics yesterday. Would like to say this is the last post I shall be making on this site but it has been of tremendous help and inspiration to me in giving me the strength to move forward with my explant. To all you lovely ladies out there I wish you all the luck with your own particular journeys and those who have posted before thanks so much for sharing your stories too.
