Hoping for Breast Implant Removal – San Antonio, TX

Well here goes.....I had a mamo done on my breasts...

well here goes.....I had a mamo done on my breasts about a month ago and this is where my journey begins. My right breast was of course squished beyond the point of no return and I felt a sharp pain. I went home and told myself that it would subside and it didn't. I just felt my breast throb and start to harden. Oh, the exam came back clean but the pain on my breast was still there..


So, I went to my primary physician and she referred me to a plastic surgeon. But, prior to going to here I went to two other plastic surgeons to get a quote and to get some advice. The first one quoted me almost 6,200 with a detail list of cost...even a fee for removal of the implants(650,00) oh,,,,and a fee for vitamins..(100.00),,,Hello, this isn't pre-natal vitamins.....this is for implant removal.. The office was all glitz and a turn off was the huge breasts that were on display...via the receptionist and financial advisor....Oh, well... he seemed okay but wouldn't give me an answer to how many explants he has done.....A LOT isn't a number.


I then went to the plastic surgeon that was referred by my internist. She was more efficient,,,,and explained that I should probably have an MRI done to know what is actually occurring......ha, good idea.


Today, I went to my internist and now have a referral for an MRI....I will schedule that this week and go from there.....
I have two more appointments with plastic surgeons in my area and will make a decision on who to use....but, until then I will get the MRI completed to know what happening.


Anybody from San Antonio have explant surgery? I don't want implants reinserted...I guess most plastic surgeons want to just remove and replace....

Okay I scheduled MRI for next Tuesday... JUNE 29TH...

Okay I scheduled MRI for next Tuesday... JUNE 29TH.....I'll keep you posted. I want to know if my implants are leaking and or ruptured... need to know prior to surgery. If anybody knows of a plastic surgeon with explant experience please send my a message...Explant only !!!!! No Revision.....I'm made up my mind...no more plastic in my body.

Will submit paperwork ,approval for surgery forms,...

Will submit paperwork ,approval for surgery forms, and money since my insurance claim was denied... cost is 5,400 and I am a little nervous. It will be a little more extensive since the MMR did show leakage. She expects that the surgery will take a couple of hours...to clean up the silicone. I'll send you a picture before and after........I just hope that I won't have drains.
