Just Had my Sub Pectoral Silicone Implants Removed - Upstate NY

Well after nine years of my implants, I decided they needed to come out. I must admit I had been thinking it for some time. I developed a contracture to the left breast. Once I made the decision to have them out I couldn't have the procedure quick enough.

I am in significant pain right now and have drains. I'm supposed to go back to work in two days but the degree of pain right now is so bad. I wonder how so many of you have posted that it did 't hurt. I also am really scared with how I am going to look. I was a full 34 a / small b prior to the implants. The surgery put me to a 34 c. Three children later all who were breast fed and before removal I was a 36D. I'm really nervous and really sore. I hope this gets better soon....

Well the pain is a little less. I think the drainage tubes are responsible for a great deal of the discomfort. I'm a bit nervous though because my right breast is much smaller than the left breast at this time. I am hoping that they both fill out a little. I think I will feel more human once the drains come out. I am somewhat sad though.... Not for the loss of the silicone but the size discrepancy to me is bothersome...I expected them to be the size of my left breast or maybe a bit bigger. I feel like my right is almost an entire cup size less. I know only time will tell but I'm nervous....

Today the drains came out. Hopefully I will not get a Seroma . I have to work this week and wish that were not the case. Hopefully this week will fly by. I see my ps again next Monday. I must say he has been great.

Good day today. While still hurting its getting better. Four day post op picture posted. I'm okay with how they look as they continue to heal. Some people I talk with are shocked that I removed them. One common question is, how does your husband feel? Well, hopefully he feels okay but I did this for me ... My health....and for my daughter whose six.

Well, today was my husbands real first day seeing the girls in person. He told me that he thinks they fit my body much better. I personally look in the mirror and see me again. The pain is a little less each day though definitely uncomfortable by the end of work. I am definitely so glad to have had the surgery!!
