Breast Implant Removal - Salt Lake City, UT

My surgery is in 13 days!!!! I had a breast...

My surgery is in 13 days!!!! I had a breast augmentation in 2007, 5 years ago by Dr. Jed Bindrup in Salt Lake City. I was a small B cup and wanted to be a full C. I ended up being a DDD- DD unfortunately. A side effect that I didn't even know was possible that was very hard for me was that my nipples got a lot bigger- at least double the size. My incisions were through my arm pits and have healed 100%- can't even see them! I got them when I was 20 pounds over weight and felt insecure about my looks. Having a belly bigger than my boobs was a blow to the ego after being a serious athlete from a young age. After a while I realized that I should have just taken better care of my health, and not worried so much about my breasts. I had beautiful, small perky breasts before surgery. Now, they are just huge. I am really nervous about surgery and what my breasts will look like in the future. After thinking about this for the last 3 or 4 years, I have finally made the decision to have my implants removed. I have chosen as this time to not get a breast lift and to see how my body heals in the next year. I am looking forward to my back not aching from the extra weight! :) Would love to hear from women who have gone through this... all my sisters and friends think I'm crazy!

My surgery is in 1 hour!! Nervous!!! My doctor...

My surgery is in 1 hour!! Nervous!!! My doctor said as soon as all the medicine wears off I can begin to run and work out as I please and will experience very little pain. I am stocked up on vitamin c, probiotics, frankensense, and vitamins to speed up the recovery.

I hope my boobs look ok after. I'm scared!! Eek. Wish me luck!

6 days out and I feel great!! I have no regrets...

6 days out and I feel great!! I have no regrets and feel much better and more like myself. My boobs are a bit saggy but surprisingly, I don't mind that at all and am looking forward to see if they tighten up or change in the next 6 months- a year.

I feel a little soreness and did take 1/2 a pain killer once or twice a day ending yesterday. Have been putting a lot of doTERRA essensial oils on to help healing and the scars. Peppermint sure cools them down!

My implants were originally 420 filled to 450 :)

I loved my doctor, the staff, and everyone I met. They called several times to check up on me prior and after the surgery. Such a nice team of people. HIGHLY recommend Dr. Charles Stewart!!
