PIP Implant Removal After 7 Years & Can't Wait - Nr Glasgow, UK

I am 37 and had had breast implants put in after...

I am 37 and had had breast implants put in after having my 2 sons at the age of 30. They were 325cc. I was originally a 34B and after having the implants in and a third child with them in (plus a few unwanted pounds) I am now a 36DD!!!

At the time of having them I was low and insecure about myself and my small chest (my ex hubby liked big breasts and mines were not big), I am now with someone who loves me for the woman I am and I no longer need acceptance and approval of others as I am happy with my body good or bad and no longer need or want them!

My 34B breasts were slightly droopy and empty after 2 pregnancies (no breast feeding). I am no longer that same person and I am desperate to have my smaller boobs back, droopy or not! My partner of 3 years is amazingly supportive and wants me to be happy and healthy. I am only 5ft4 and a size 10/12. My surgery is in July. I can't wait to be smaller and back to myself and wear the smaller tops without worrying about my large chest!

I am hoping mines fluff up after the implant removal as they are rather droopy with the implants, Fingers crossed for me and I wish all my fellow implant removers luck and much fluffiness lol xx

ps I will post photos pre-op and post op xxxx

Just posted before photos of my breasts with the implants and hoping and praying I will have enough breast tissue for them to fluff up after i have the breast implants removed in July!!!

Just had a call to book me in for my pre-op health check - 2 July

And my actual operation for the implant removal is the 17 July 2012.


I am so happy I could burst. I can't wait to have these big hard rocks out! I don't care how droopy they look as I am totally prepared for the whole golf ball in a sock look!!!!!! Gulp!!!!

Thank you to all the woman on here who have also made this hard choice. We are all going through the same and I truely feel a bond on here that you wouldn't get chatting with non implanted friends xxxxx

Well I went for my pre-op check yesterday and I am...

Well I went for my pre-op check yesterday and I am super excited!!!

They did the usual, took my height, weight, medical history, haemoglobin level and photos my chest.

The Nurse was fantastic as I think she could sense my excitement and positive attitude to getting this done which I think she doesn't often hear!

Excited to counting down the days to the op for the implant removals on the 17 July!!!!!

Thanks again for all the support and kind words as its so worrying not knowing how they are going to look but at least they will be natural, all mine and no more anaesthetics to get them replaced in the future!

Still wondering about what size I'll be as I was originally a 34B before my implants but have had another child since and added a few pounds on to the scales!!! Hopefully there will be enough tissue and if not there are good bras out there that I can invest in!!! Fingers x xxxx

Well my surgery for removal is tomorrow and...

Well my surgery for removal is tomorrow and getting a tad nervous but also excited at the same time! I've to arrive at the hospital for 10am but I'm not due to go to the theatre for the op til 6pm!!! Lots of waiting on an empty stomach for me then!

By the way I'm shocked how huge my boobs look in the photos as I don't think they are that huge in reality , I might post another pre-op photo later, just off to pack my overnight bag for hospital, if anyone has any tips or recommendations etc for lotions and healing stuff please let me know.

Thanks again for all the support as its great having other 'friends' going thru the same insecurities etc, but deep down we all know we are doing the right thing and that our breasts are ours to love no matter wot they look like! As usual ladies I wish u all luck and much fluffiness in your recovery!

Well that's me had the surgery! Got taken early at...

Well that's me had the surgery! Got taken early at 2pm and was back in my room by 3pm, feeling great!! A little tender and sore round my chest muscles but feeling great apart from abit tiredness. Had a peek whilst in my bed and I'm so happy I almost cried as they feel so soft!!!! And don't look to bad altho I don't know how they will look when I stand up!

Just managed some tea and toast and it was yum as I was starving! Feeling tired but also feeling like I have made the best decision of my life!

Pleased to also say thr implants were still in good condition and feel really relieved altho I still don't regret getting them out, my only regret is not doing it sooner.

Thanks for all the support ladies, it's means do much to be supported by woman who know exactly wot we are talking about. I'll post some photos in the next day or so xxx

Thanks for all the lovely comments My boobs are...

Thanks for all the lovely comments

My boobs are so soft.....and warm!!! I so don't miss the big heavy feeling, hard feeling and also my boobs always felt cold to me and also to touch! I'm well chuffed they are lovely and warm and soft! I have a new found love for my natural saggy, but all mine, boobs!

I know I'm still laying down in me bed recovering but just want to see to any ladies who are unsure to go ahead...... Do it! I feel like I am back to myself without my boobs entering a room before me! Big hugs to u all and night night for now xxx

Well thats me home from hospital and feeling good.

Slightly concerned about the sloshing noise coming from both breast which only started this monring?! Anyone else have this?

Anyway still really happy and have posted some pics to share with you all xxxx

Today I feel really tired and still tender which is only to be expected.

Transform called me to check how I was, so ran by the whole sloshing noise from both breasts and they said its totally normal, so very relieved!

Last night and today I have 3 sport bras on.... Yes 3! I have a 34b on, then ontop of that a 34c then lastly a 34d! They feel so much better and secure this way! Feels great not having the fake feeling anymore, just hope the sloshing goes soon and the fluffing starts! Xxx

Well this morning I took off my dressings to have...

Well this morning I took off my dressings to have a shower (sterile strips were still over the stitches so kept them on) and had a good look and I'm pleasantly suprised. They don't like too horrendous altho they could be doing with tightening up so hoping that process will keep happening over the next number of weeks!

I'm back at work tomorrow........boo hiss...... and hoping I'm not too tired although I only work part time lol. I managed to drive on Saturday, just a short journey to test myself and it was fine. Still finding that I am tired after doing anything, for example, had shower and blow dryed my hair this morning and was pooped after that!!! Not like me at all so hoping that's my body just taking it's time to mend. I managed to go out a 40 minute walk last night so that's good and can't wait to get back to keeping fit and tightening up my body.

I am down to wearing 2 sports bras now. A 34b, then a 34c on top. I feel more secure and the sloshing that I had has also reduced. It's still their but not as bad.

On Wednesday 25th I am back at Transform for my post op check and to get the stitches out, so looking forward to that.

I have Palmers bust cream and the bio-oil ready to slather on in the hope that this helps tighten and heal things up. Noticed alot of woman say that massaging their breasts helps to stimulate the breasts to help fluffiness and tighten them up so will give it a bash.


The day before my op my sons went to stay with their grandparents so when they came home (they came back 2 days after my surgery) when I went to hug them when they came home I asked them to watch as I was tender at my chest as I had a wee op, they asked me why I was in hospital, so I told them i had 2 lumps removed. And on reflection that is exactly what they were to me....2 lumps. I do not miss them or remember them fondly as I was so shocked with the PIP scare that I just wanted them out.

All in all I am 150% happy and would recommend it to anyone who is unsure. I feel far slimmer and sexier without implants and I love how warm and soft my breasts are!!! I will post some photos at the end of this week.

Well I went back on Wednesday to get my stitches...

Well I went back on Wednesday to get my stitches removed but they weren't quite ready as me lefty was still 'knitting' together. So back I trotted on Friday and they were ready to be taken out. Rather uncomfortable to be honest but really pleased, and my boobs are looking fab, droppy, but all me!

Today i bought a new top a size smaller than I normally do as I no longer need the bigger size to accommodate the implants and wow, I feel so much slimmer!!! My partner couldnt beleive hopw much slimmer i looked wearing a tyop which suits my frame and not to suit the implants!!

Going to take photos to show you 2 weeks after explant and see wot you guys think!

Im still wearing 2 breas as I feel more secure whilst i still have this sloshing which is only in my left breast now. Thanks again ladies for all the support and hope you all are as happy with your decision as I am. It such a relief to be myself again!xxxx

Added some new photo's of me 2 weeks after the...

Added some new photo's of me 2 weeks after the removal of implants and must say they actually look better when you see them in person than they do in photo's.

Hardly any scarring as you can see and hope this helps some of you ladies decide to explant!!

I cant say it enough, it is the best decision I madexxxxxx

1 year tomorrow and feel fantastic!

I honestly can't beleive the difference! I've worn fitted simple dresses the last 6 months as dresses now fit my frame! Love my wee boobs 1 year on!

1 year ago I was packing my bag getting ready to have my implants out! And 1 year on I have to say defo no regrets! I'm between a 34b or c cup depending on where I buy! The photos I have attached show me in a bra from sainsburys which is a 34b ???????????? very happy and hope my story has helped others as I know other ladies stories certainly helped me! I defo feel my skin has tightened and they have fluffed up in the last year! Here goes the photos......

Btw I defo feel slimmer!!!!
