Old Gal Finally Gets Her Wish - Reno, NV

It was 1975. My friend and I were 25 years old....

it was 1975. My friend and I were 25 years old. Both flat chested with small frames. Thought it sounded great. Big boobs inan hour. I had the smallest ones made as they were the only ones he could get in. Liked them a short time,a lot less more when we had to go and have them squeezed to break the capsule. That was not my idea of fun. Hurt like hell. Started wanting them ouu about 7 years after. Didn't! Happen, not enough cash. Hated them more all the time and lt stupid,especially. As I aged. Your whole perspective changes. Young finally like yourself. Anyway at the magically age of almost 62 the insurance ok paying for the
Surgery. Those puppies were in there 37 years. According to report, it was very nasty work. This was end of march. Honestly they look a lot better than I expected. I love how soft they are, how good my neck and back feeL. I like myself better which is a gift in it's self. Unless it is a pacemaker,there will be no foreign objects inside me. Love my new look too.Huh

Reno Plastic Surgeon

Very responsible surgeon. Agreed with my decision not to replace. Had a mis cue on meds from the clinic on how much to take. Had no pain, but pretty dizzy and lightheaded. My kids call it mom's drug binge. Got it sorted out my big thing was get it all out and that she did. She has really nice people working for her. No complaints

I wonder if a book of stories were put together, and left in certain offices how long they would be there, or if they would even read them bty that date. I know, each one of us should find and talk to one little gal and try and change her mind. That 32 caustic chemicals in a sack would have done it for mem.......old gal

End of September, I will have been free from augmentation for 6 months. Thrilled to death. They fit my body size and age. Thought I was going to end up a 36c bought 5-6 bras only to find they are too big. Am looking for 36b in a pushup. Found two cite maiden form ones at kohl's that were pretty comfy. I also ordered 2 handful bras and got some genie ones at Walmart. Wearing them all. Boobs feel great. I scrub them all over in the shower with those net puff balls and they jiggle all over and I laugh and tell my n? Boobs they must be happy to laugh and jijjle like that. They feel real enough to talk to you know. After 37 years of living as I posters, I may name them. Got any ideas what I can call the girls when we talk in the shower.

I'm so much more encouraged to go through my surgery which is scheduled in a couple of weeks. My 30 year implants are under the muscle and will be explanted soon :) Yes, you are blessed to have your family support along with this forum. Thanks again for sharing. I'm hoping that any young woman who is even thinking of have implants will read this forum and all what we have to say and have experienced - will think twice of doing this to theirselves for what they think the outcome will bring to their self esteem and looks.

My implants were under the muscle (37 yrs) they were removed end of march this year. No lift. All I told the Dr. Was make sure you get everything out. I didn't care about anything else. Four months later, they have healed well and I love them. I feel as if I have been set free. I can 't begin to express the satisfaction I feel. I feel no kinship with the young girl I was who agreed to this barbaric thing. All you young women, take pride in the women you are. You are worth so much more than you are old enough to realize. I have had the honor of living this thing in honesty with my husband and three 20 something children who were all grace personified in my explanting experience. My youngest is a girl who went to appointment and encouraged me and did all she could,learning a lot along the way. My boys helped wait on me hand and foot. Am I blessed or what! Don't worry what others think, usually they are to busy worrying about themselves to think about you.
