I am 38yrs young, I have had these toxic tits for 6 yrs and found out a month ago they are PIP I don't know if they have bled or ruptured but I intend to have them removed and having read about the ill effects of medical silicone I am not having replacements. My body may already be struggling from the result of the industrial grade silicone that is in my body, I have had problems with general illness and every 2/3weeks my glands in my neck swell I am not sure if there is a connection.

I wish I had found site like this prior to my implantation although I would probably have thought it won't happen to me! However now faced with the PIP scandal and knowing that's in my body has made me re think all forms of implant! Lied to by surgeons about the safety and life of an implant my trust in the "cosmetipro industry has been severly damaged and I am now choosing my health over the media and cosmetic industries advertising of what I should look like!

I will be keeping an update of the progress I make unfortunately it is slow because I think the surgeries here have thousands of women wanting a medical silicone replacement, I am not swapping one poison for another......watch this space. E

Please ignore cost as I could not post without a cost.

Ok, day 2 and no pain or discomfort. I took my sports bra of yesterday as that was the only think hurting me as was digging into the stitches. Going to buy a bigger size so as not to dig. Honestly golden1234 it has been so easy so please don't be worried about the procedure. I have a padded sports bra for going back to work as don't really want people to notice so thought I'd gradually reduce haha. X

Im in scotland as well but got app very quickly. Had mine removed yesterday. At my first check up they said no ruptures but seeminly my right one had a gel bleed. My ps told me when i was in recovery room when i was to groggy to question it and he went home after that so will nd to wait until my 6 wk check to find out more. Anyway hope u have had a date by now. Im day 1 and very mild pain. Had mine 6 years also. Bit droopt but not at all as bad as i expected. Let me know how u get on. X

Hi, I agree wholeheartedly with your reveiw. Its such a shame that we have all been subjected to the medias view of what we should look like, and then given our trust to surgeons who are really just making money out of our youthful insecurites. My breasts were small but perfectly formed originally, shame someone couldnt have just helped me to recognise that. I think it was down to postnatal depression.

anyway.... really happy for you that you have made the decision to have your implants taken out

keep pushing the clinic for a date - I was given mid march for a consultation and ultrasound and was told I would have to wait until after this to book my op, which would have meant another long worrying wait. I emailed them with all my concerns and also told them I didnt need an ultrasound as didnt want them replaced and was given a cancellation date for earlier - I had them removed yesterday!

Hi crucified,

Im in the same boat as you, decide that I want to take them out and awaiting for the clinic to get back to me which will take time I guess, unless I'm feeling lucky!

Hope your call comes soon and you get the results you wish. I believe we all on this 'removal' forum/review have one ultimate wish, that is to explant, no matter what..... for a healthier & freedom future.

I'm glad you feel at peace with this decision you've made! It seems like very sound judgment. I'm sorry you were given the PIP implants.

I WILL be watching this space! :0) Keep us posted.
