Explant on 8/22- TERRIFIED of Going Under Again - Orlando, FL

Hi! I'm new to the board! I had implants put in...

Hi! I'm new to the board! I had implants put in June 9th 2012....that's right only 2.5 months and I never liked the size from the beginning. I have 300 cc's under the muscle (silicone). I told the doc I wanted to be a B cup and I'm almost a 32D (depending on the bra). I'm 5'2 100lbs a size 0 in clothing. So these implants are extremely big for me.

Aside from me not liking the size, I've been having a lot of trouble breathing AFTER this surgery was performed. I've had 2 EKG's done and a stress test. All came out negative and my surgeon insists this has nothing to do with the implants. Well the thing is that I'm 34 years old and very acvtive. I never had any breathing issues before UNTIL I had these implants put in place. Therefore I feel they are contributing to my inability to inhale properly. It feels like my air just can't get through. As if my passages are swollen or someone is sitting on me preventing me from breathing. So they're coming out. I'm terrified as I just found out today I have to be put completely under again. I thought it would be done under local but I guess not.

I am thankful my surgeon is even doing this only at the cost of anesthesia. It's very nice of him to do this. I'm over the amount of money I spent to get them in. That money is gone forever and I'll just have to work super hard to get it back. I just want to put all this behind me and be happy and BREATHE again.

Thinking of you today! When you feel up to it, please let us know how you're feeling.

Good for you that you did this! I'm doing it next week after hauling these things around for 25 years! Hope you are feeling better!

I'm one day post op. There was much less anestesia...

I'm one day post op. There was much less anestesia used this time. Last time (for the augmentation) I was out for like 2 days post op. This time I was up and walked out of the doctor's office. Once I got home I started to feel horrible pain around the stitches. I had to start taking my meds, which I hardly used last time. I've gotten up a few times to avoid blood clots. My chest feels strange. It hurts a little and deep breathes cause discomfort. However I was told they're very important to avoid sickness. My breasts are wrapped up in a huge bandage, so I have no idea what they look like. However I was instantly happy to know they were out and I was small again. Taking the medication as prescribed I feel sleepy. I'm not allowed to move my arms for 2 weeks, so I'm pretty much just laying in bed. The doctor did not have to put the drain for fluid. I guess since I only had them for 2.5 months I didn't need it.

Ok guys. I have uploaded pics of before augmentation, augmentation (for 2.5months) and one photo of post but I'm still wrapped up like a mummy. Remember I'm a tiny girl at 5'1/98lbs
It's been 4 days since my surgery. I'm not taking any pain meds anymore. I feel pretty good. I'm trying to take it easy and not move my arms too much like the doctor said.

5 days post op. No more pain killers. I stopped them a few days ago. Still on antibiotic though. About 2 hours ago my stitches started bothering me (the left breast area) they itch. I still have some kind of strip over them. I had hubby look at them and he says they don't look different. I have some blood (just a little) from the first few days. I have my first post op appt tomorrow.
Hi Verdeluz

You should be okay for your physical, I would hope, depending on what's involved. You look pretty lean/fit so it shouldn't take you long to get back into it. I've not exercised for a good 2/3 months due to the pain beforehand and then obviously the recovery - and it sounds like I'm older! Lol! X

I have to run 2 miles...do push ups, sit ups and pull ups...then do a sprint run. It's all timed for a federal position. I HAVE to pass this.
Reply
That's similar to ours. I think the pull ups especially will be the killer. Push ups may not be too hard depending on hand position. I'll try a couple and let you know how it feels as I'm 3 weeks ahead of you recovery wise I think. X

First post-op visit today. The doc says they're healing well. My stitches will remain for another week. I aske if I could wear a sports bra and he said it was ok.

I'm a little down. My breasts look so small now. I was a 32A before now I just look like I have nothing. Remember I just had these in for 2.5 months... So I remember what my breasts looked like before. They are also very jello type. They're not firm. :(
thanks AshleyGail xxx

Don't worry, I was the same way. Three days before surgery I was having anxiety and just wanted it to be over with. But I can honestly say that I am happy with my decision. :-) you will be too.

8 days post-op. I just finished my last antibiotic YAY!!! Those things are so nasty! I put a question on a forum asking when will my breasts firm up. I'm hoping a doctor will answer with some information. I had one doctor answer but he thinks I had my implants for 3 years when I said 2.5 months.

Tomorrow I'm starting a desk job. Going back to combat will have to wait 5 weeks. Combat requires me to wear a bullet proof vest and go hands on with people. So I need to make sure I'm strong enough to fight for my life.

I feel ok physically. I've been just sleeping and resting. Hubby has done all the cleaning and cooking. I just want my body to go back to normal. I want to shower and scrub. I have to go sit at an office and I'm wearing a body wrap! Dear Lord help me get through this.

9 days post op. I started work today in the office...

9 days post op. I started work today in the office. I did a 13 hour shift. Omg what a long day. Last night I started to feel weird. Like my chest was just strange. I got up in the middle of the night and everything. I kept feeling it at work. Almost like heartburn and it travels to my back. I'm hoping it's just part of the healing process.

I cried tonight when I saw my breast. I can't believe this entire ordeal has happened to me. 2 surgeries in less than 3 months... $5,000 lost and now my health may be at risk. I also have a job interview which will require a very difficult physical test with the Feds. I may have screwed up my chance at that.

I just ask God to give me strength and help me get through this. To just heal me and let me be healthy again.
Hi Verdeluz

I cannot believe they put you on a 13 hour shift your first day back, that's just not on, even on light duties. I really hope you're feeling a bit better. Try not to get down. I'm taking it day by day and trying to keep positive as I think we all still have a long journey ahead of us, physically and psychologically. When can you take your corset off? X

When I was really down I was left on my wall o listen to this song :) its sooo helpful and up lifting when I needed it the most. " it's called "stronger" by mandisa please listen, it was sooo helpful to me and is still helps me to power thru this :) my son is in the military and is Infrantry. He is struggleing right now and I sent him this song and he loved it :) I hope it can help you as much as it helped me :)

Hi Elle. Yeah I love mandisa. I put that song in another forum. I just get so mad at myself for having done this to begin with. 2 surgeries in 3 months is a lot.

12 days post-op. I asked a question on this site to find out if my skin would firm up or I'd it will always feel like jello. Today one doctor said probably not! I'm sad :( I seriously thought that my body would try to bounce back. I had implants for 2.5 months. But I'm trying not to get upset. He the first doc to say probably not. Everyone else has mentioned it takes time, giving me hope. I started putting vitamin E on my breasts and soon will begin taking flex seed. 3 more days and my stitches come off.
YES !! what you just said i relate to all of them except your's was big for you , mine was supposed to be a full B he put a little more in so i hate that some or maybe most of them think we all wanted big ones or we don't know what we want, so over it . i am working on my story and trying to figure out to do the pictures , i am not too savvy with this :) and i will let you know my progress , you take care :) that was good you didn't have to paid ..... rest girl.

o...i hope you are feeling better. that 13 hours work day you had was just too much on your body , i hope you can get some more rest.
Reply
hi,for 2.5 months , i am no Dr. but from what i read and most of the answers from Dr.'s in such short time your skin should bounce back nicely, i had mine for 2month and 4 days then i had the explant ,so it's been 20 day's for me ,i had the stitches out 6 day's ago , my Dr. taped the area which is through my nipples , sha said i can remove them tomorrow then i'll see her in about a month,they look very much like before but of course they are still a bit bruise and swollen so they seem a bit just a bit :) bigger than what i look like before haha... i am still wearing the small bras i double them up to keep them down...so back to my old simple bras they kinda like workout bras :) but i believe you will look very much like before , oh...and you have nice skin just think how soft and nice all the other pluses xox

15 days post op. Stitches came out today OMG did it hurt! I don't know what happened but they were pretty stuck in there. To be honest my breasts look a lot like they did before. They're just not firm I describe it as Jello. But the docto says they'll get firmer. I'm going to order some Flex seed capsules and I've putting vitamin E on my breasts. I will remain on desk duty at least until Oct 18th.
Hi. I'm ok. Very itchy around the incision areas. The stitches came out Thursday after 2 weeks. It hurt so much. They were really stuck there! I am at work today and I'm wearing just a regular bra and I'm soooo self concious. I am so flat now because I don't have the sports bra filled with padding for pressure. This is very upseting. Even before my surgery I was ok with my boobs in front of people because the push up bras made them fine. Now there's like nothing there to push up.

I work 12 hours Fri, Sat and Sun. So I'm hoping to make it!!!!!

21 days post op. I saw my cardiologist today and got the results from my heart sonogram. I am super good. At 34 there was no reason for me to be experiencing chest trouble. So my doctor concludes my small frame probably didn't appreciate the pressure of 300 ccs. He asked me if I got a refund lol. I told him I was hoping the doc would have considered it but I wasn't that lucky.

In other news when I had the implants another thing that bothered me was the weird feeling at the bottom of the breasts. It wasn't numbness, but just a very weird non pleasant feeling. I touched my breasts today and that feeling is almost totally gone. I'm not feeling 100% like my old self but I'm almost there.

My breasts don't look too bad. My scar concerns me a little. But I guess only time will tell.
hi verdeluz34, so glad your breasts look great . i like to know what kind of chest feelings you were experiencing and glad to hear your dr. said cause you are so small frame is that why ? our small frame and our chest muscle is still trying to adjust and heal back , cause for us 34A 's it was a big stretch on our chest ,am i right ? God bless us xox

I felt I hd asthma 24/7. That's the best way to describe it. If you've never had asthma, it felt like something was on top of me, preventing me from inhaling all the air I needed. My primary care told me he had patients who complained about the same after implants as a permanent side effect.

It's been 4 weeks since my explant. I've been taking vitamin E and flax seed vitamins. I feel my breasts are 80% back to normal. I do have some stretch marks I didn't have before. It's obvious my implants were too large for my body.

Yesterday a friend of my sisters told me she's getting implants next week. I couldn't help to feel scared for her. I wished when I was thinking about implants, a fellow implanter would've warned me. It's hard to listen to people who have never had them done. I found no one to talk to who had them done and had problems. That I believe would have changed my mind. I told her if I could go back in time I would punch myself and knock this Idea out of my head lol. She went on to say how it sucks that I lost $5K. It's almost as if she was trying to put me down. But it didn't work. I chose health over looks. It was a no brainer. Should I look hot w big boobs or not breathe properly? Duh!!!

I want to start working out again. I have a federal test coming up and I want to pass. I will post pics tonight when hubby takes them.
Our recoveries are all different but I'm back in the gym 3 times a week and I'm lifting weights, albeit not too heavy. Wishing you all the best. Keep us posted. X

I'm still on desk duty for another month. He knows I'm on the streets and he's probably concerned of me getting into a fight with sore boobs.

My fed test is in 4 months. I don't know the date yet but I have to work out because it's pretty intense.

Hey Verdaluz

Glad everything ok and your boobs are recovering nicely.

We learn by our mistakes, hopefully it won't be too harsh a lesson for the woman getting implants!

Looking forward to seeing your update pics. I took some today, will need to get them uploaded.

When is your fed test? Are you still on desk duty? X

Well ladies, last night I decided to put on a bathing suit I purchased after the explant. I had to exchange the bathing suit I purchased for my implants and Victoria Secret was having a sale. I was able to score this 2 piece suit for $20. It's a regular push up bathing suit, not the one that adds 2 cups or anything like that. I waited and waited to put it on because I was afraid of the outcome. Well, I was pleasantly surprised! See the pic!!!!
Verdeluz34 Hi!!! you look great!!!! how are you doing?
Reply
I'm great. Hubby loves me dearly :D my girlfriends have been very supportive and my male friends tell me I never needed the boobs and I look great no matter what. What I've been doing is wearing a bra insert that makes me look like a B cup )every day) to kind of transition from going from huge boobs to an A cup. I think it's working spychologically and once I can wear push up bras I'll be fine. So all is well... Healing is good. I put vitamin E on them every night and I take a vitamin e capsule and a flax seed capsule every night.

My healing has been going very well. I feel excellent and my breathing is normal! I can't help but feel angry at my doctor for choosing such a large implant for a tiny girl like me. The more and more I ask people what size they had, even bigger girls than me had smaller implants. I did not know better and totally trusted his judgement that he would make me a B cup. In turn I end up being a D cup, unable to breathe and feeling horrible. So I was thinking today about writting a letter to my surgeon. Just expressing what I feel in hopes that if he gets another patient as small as me, he's cautious about the size. He doesn't think my breathing was related to the implants, but it obviously was since I've had no problems since they were removed. What do you gals think? Should I write him a letter?
oh yes , you should , it may help other girls down the road , lets hope. and pray he will really think about it and even share it with other PS as well.
Reply
Yes, you should write him a letter. It may help him think differently in the future, even if it doesn't it would help you to get it out!

And the bathing suit looks great! I haven't bought a new one yet.

I broke down last night. I can't believe I didn't fight harder at the beginning and trusted the surgeon. I cried and cried because I will never know if 150cc's would've been the right choice for my tiny body. Furthermore, he made his money, I lost it all! I gained nothing but pain and suffering + scars and stretch marks. My husband has been so great and supportive. Gosh I pray to God we die old together because without him I would be in a home for the crazy. So I'm going to write my doctor a letter, lettiing him know there was a correlation between my implants and my breathing problems. Also to please be more cautious when choosing implant sizes for 00 size females. 300cc's are NOT a size B cup, which is what I asked for. I will wait to do the letter until after my last follow up, which is next week.

Today my right breast is hurting for some reason. I haven't been working out or nothing so I don't know what it could be.
If I had your figure vendalluz ,I would be over the freakin mom, you really are quite love however 62 catch es up with us old o.nes, while I am quite happy on my own skin,,it would be lovely to have a young woman's figure again.

Hi verdeluz, your right, those implants were stupid big for your little body. I had the same thing happen. My doctor put in large and wide implants. I think the width was for max cleavage, but I just have really lame side boob that I have always had to stuff into clothes. I got stretch marks on the sides of my breasts immediately after as well. At least you were smart enough to get them out right away. I'm sorry as I am sure this was very traumatic for you. :( But at least your boobies bounced back and you won't be looking at empty sacks like me! :)

Well, I had my last follow up Tuesday 10/16. I would say the entire appt was all of 2 mins long? The doc looked at my breasts touched them for 2 seconds and said "call us if you need us." I felt he didn't care. He didn't say "oh they're looking great" or anything like that. Although my breats look just like before they did pre-surgery, when I lay down I can see a big difference. Because there is no firmness, they just fall like jello to the side. I don't know if this will get better. I wish I could find someone who's had them removed 1 year ago and speak with them. I am getting a little depressed. I'm just feeling ugly everywhere.
can you update on how you are going with words and pics please

I do have to put up photos. Just been busy at work. I feel fine physically. Of course its been an emotional journey....I think I protect them more...I may be overly sensitive now? But I did gain my sensation back under the breast where I had lost due to the bag resting there.

Just read your story, sound exactly like me. Im actually explanting today, Ive only had implants for 1 1/2 months. They ae just not for me, I think its more mental than anything, just know I cant live with them. Scarred to death about goin back under and then the result:( cant wait until its over.

Its been a while...I started doing push ups. Today my breasts hurt. I don't know if its from working out or maybe my period is on its way. I shall wait a few days and see.
Thank you for posting your story. Based on your experience and my gut feeling combined with the stretching I saw when they squeezed these 450cc implants into my poor 32A frame. I've been miserable ever since and your story had solidified my sentiments exactly. I kept telling them I couldn't breathe. Also, I discovered that side boob is caused by an implant that is too large for the breast envelope. Also they say NO MORE THAN two bra sizes for comfort. Each 100cc's equaled a bra size. That means you are a full C and I am a DD. I'm you going to downsize to 150cc's, which I believe is the smallest implant. Explant would inevitably result in a lift or another surgery to place a small implant.
Reply
I was measured as a 32DD at Victoria secret :( I thought I was going to cry when I was measured. Now I wear push ups 32B or 32C's. what was your final decision?
Reply
I'm thinking that maybe I will chance it and take the conservative approach. If I remove them, let them heal and either do nothing if result is acceptable or do a lift or implant if necessary. This may be my only opportunity to get out. I hate implants and the destruction they e caused my body. I used to love my body now Im miserable every day but have been paralyzed w fear. I think explant is my only hope so I don't regret not getting out while I can get out. How's your skin doing?

Hi everyone. I've been gone for the holidays. My breasts feel fine. They are more sensitive than they were before. I treat them with such kindness. My nipples are very sensitive. At least I didn't loose sensation. I can't complain with the way they look considering what I've done to my body. I really wish someone would have slapped me and stopped me before doing this. I don't know how long it will take me to recover emotionally from this. But I'm happy I don't feel this pressure on me and I can breathe. I'm happy to feel the bottom of my breasts and I'm happy to be natural.
Wow its been a while since this happened and I think about it almost every day. I finally wrote my doctor a letter and hope that his decision to place such large implants in me makes him think twice when dealing with another patient my size. I just had some swim suit photos taken. I was very self concious, worse than before my surgery. I'm hoping the pics come out good. If they do, I'll be adding some here. It's been a long journey and it hasn't ended, I don't think it ever will.

I just had my implants explanted as well for breathing problems! I had 421 silicone under the muscle amd it was the worst decision ever. I had them 3 and 1/2 months only and after one month i noticed bad brearhing problems them after two and three it got worse. Now that i got them out i feel better but still have breathing issues like i cant breathe from my chest hardly and it still feels pressure on it at times. Im hoping all this goes away with time or else there is perm damage. Ive had heart and lung tests and ct scan and so lungs arent the issue it has to be my chest muscles or ribs bc they hurt and burned feeling a lot while i had implants im also. How long did it take gor your breathing to completely get better???
Reply
It took like 2 weeks...give it some time for your body to heal. 421 is a large implant and you're body is adjusting back. But our bodies are amazing and you will get better.

Well, My doctor has not and probably will not respond to my letter. In the mean time I keep learning to cope with the decision to have put these bombs inside me. I just thank God for giving me an early sign before keeping them in too long. I'm not looking too bad. I'm not gonna lie, I avoid the mirror in the nude at all costs. But with clothing on, I feel pretty confident in myself. I'm not too bad! These pics I'm posting today are for you ladies. There is life after explant. We are beautiful from the inside. Boobs do not make us women. The tough decisions we make in life, the carrying of a child and bouncing back, the love we have for others...that's what makes us women.
Yes those looked terrible inside your body. They totally distorted your proportions and didnt even look right. I had huge ones 450's and have popped back after downsize to 300's but truly I just wanted them out but was afraid of loose skin. I want to feel bottom of my breast again too. I miss being free. I still feel stretched and big but at least not in pain anymore. I want to be free of implants. Hate them in me since I have minimal breast tissue and they look like globes. My surgeon was amazing but these are not me. I will live w them for a 3-4mos then explant if I can't take it
Reply
I know it's a tough road to have to go down but thank goodness you realized you wanted them out so quickly. I had my implants for nearly 6 years and had encapsulation so my poor boobs suffered more damage than yours but your results still give me hope!! I think you look amazing!! And I totally agree with the jello thing. I'm praying mine firm up well and soon!

So glad you are doing well and have bounced back so nicely. Congratulations on coming full circle and accepting the real you. You look fantastic in your bathing suit.

OMG Ladies...its been months since I had these implants removed. 8.5 months ago and the other day my chest felt just like when I had the implants. All of a sudden trouble breathing again. The TERROR! Why??? WHY is this feeling back? I've been fine for over 8 months. Maybe its God telling me not to think about these implants ever again? Because I'll be honest, I think about them. I think about what if I had just gotten 175CC's. :-(
I thank you so much for sharing your story.I thought I was the only one.I am still going through breathing problems at least you got a break I pray for that.my chest feels wierd all the time and Feels like my breast tissue is just hanging on my chest.also,your breast looks beautiful mine still looks saggy after Almost year.thanks agian

Scar Tissue?

Hi Ladies. I have a question. Anyone ever heard of scar tissue developing after explant? Today my breasts started to hurt and I feel a lump. I'm trying not to freak out. I'm just curious if scar tissue would be a possibility.
Thanks for your positive shout out on LuvMyNatural's page! That made me feel a lot better. I wanted to ask you, though, you said in one of your updates that you looked like you "had nothing" after you came out from explant. When do you remember starting to plump/fluff up? I was a borderline a/b (I have photos too) and I looked so much smaller after implants. I only had them for 9 weeks. 300cc. When did you start getting bigger? You look fabulous by the way!
Reply
Hi. So sorry I'm so late responding. How are you doing?
Reply
I am so sorry to read about everything you had to go through. Yes, I think your problems were because your implants were very big for you. Take a look at mine, they are 175cc, mod-plus, over the muscle. I am like you, petite and I told my surgeon I wanted to have back what I had before breastfeeding, and I got exactly that. Almost 5 months post-op and they feel smaller since the swollen has gone down, very soft and natural. Well, I am talking about my right breast because the left one is still higher and has the downwards shape. I hope it will be normal in the future. Sometimes, I think I should have got 200cc and that is because my natural breasts were closer together, now they are more apart. I am very happy that I did it though, I have not have a problem with them so far. Of course I can feel the implant when I touch them, but i do not care. I believe that your breathing problem can be psychological, I mean a panic attack. I have had panic attacks for years and very strong ones. I feel I cannot breath at all but when they measure my oxygene is more than adequate. For some years when I was getting them I thought I was dying, then I got a little used to them and knew that my breathing problem was because of the panic attack. How long does this breathing problem last for you? I will be waiting to hear from you.

Hello everyone

It's been a long time since I've posted...a long time since my implant and explant. I have to admit I keep wishing I had bigger breasts and even still think, will 150cc's be the right choice for me? Looking at my implant photos I remember now how digusted I thought I looked and didn't even want to look in the mirror.

Today I cope with the decision to have implants. The damage this has done to my body. Although I've healed copletely, I feel my breasts are not the same. They are extremely sensitive to touch. I also feel I lost firmness. Not too much but noticeable to me. We are own worst critics and while on the outside everyone thinks I have big breasts due to push up bras, on the inside I hide what I've done to myself.
Hi. I thought your breasts looked very nice and not big at all. I got 175 cc texture silicone and I wish they were bigger. I can say I had fuller breasts naturally when in my 20's and so I was used to having some breasts comparing to my tiny frame. When I was pregnant and breastfeeding they got even bigger and it did not bother me at all. I do not know what to tell you, I think you did not wait enough for the implants to settle and get normal and soft. I felt them so hard and heavy for some months and took them a long time to settle. At first when i saw them I freaked out because I thought they were huge but it was the swelling and that lasted for many months. And mine are overs which means less time to settle. Why didn't you do overs? You had more breast tissue than me. Anyway, I do not want to make feel that you did not do the right thing, everybody is different. I felt so bad about my deflated breasts for more than 10 years and after I had them done I wish I hadn't waited for that long. I have not had any problems that did not have before surgery regarding the implants and not the cancer treatments and other lymph surgery. I remember though that the first 4-5 days and until the bandage came off I was having panic attacks all the time, I felt awful and depressed because of the discomfort. That thing was so tight I could not breath. The only thing girls out there should consider is that they should have them done after they are done breastfeeding because that is when you get depressed. Have you thought that your breathing problem is panic attacks? I have had them for years and let me tell you they just came like that and lasted from 15 minutes to 45. You feel like you cannot breath at all and after it is over you feel fine. Do you have something like that? Of course, over the years I developed other panic symptoms much worse than the breathing thing. I think you might have experienced a panic attack because you felt bad about your breasts and your decision to have them and upset about your doctor and guilty for whatever issue, I do not know. I have just learned a lot over the years dealing with my problem and having seen so many psychiatrists and read about psychology. Write me your comments, please, and tell me how you are feeling now. Do you still have the breathing problem?

Thank you for sharing your story. I want to have my implants out also, since I am also a tiny girl (not quite as tiny as you, but pretty small), and my doctor put in 400cc, even though I asked for SUBTLE! Then after six months, he agreed to change them to 300ccs.... still too big!!! Now I just want them out. And I'm wondering, should I get them out, or get them out and lifted at the same time, if that's an option. Anyway, I just wanted to tell you that your breasts look absolutely perfect!! You are right -- we are always our own worst critic, and we fail to see the beauty, and quick to see the imperfections. But honestly, believe me, your breasts after the explant are just lovely, with or without clothes. Can I have them? LOL? No really, I only hope mine turn out as beautiful once these things are taken out of me. Geez... what was I thinking??
