First I had saline implants for about a year...they were HORRIBLE!!! Not only did they look very fake, they felt very fake! They were lumpy, heavy, and just all around horrible!
It was very obvious they were lumpy (saline implants). I wish I had kept the photos of before & after where I had the lumpy saline & then got the silicone implants (it was very obvious the silicone implants were so much better).
The pain was not too bad after the silicone implants. I actually went shopping later that day (wasn't suppose to). I think the stiches were taken out about three days after the surgery. The initial swelling took a few weeks to go down but several months to subside completely.
I decided to have them done years after I had my last child. Childbearing took a huge toll on my breasts (they lost a lot of volume & became very droopy). I hated wearing swimsuits after giving birth, hating taking my shirt off for any reason, and I was miserable at how bad my breasts had become.
The silicone implants were heaven sent!!! The silicone implants feel much softer, more natural. They look more natural, too (not 100% natural but many times better than saline).
I have had the silicone implants now for @ eight years with NO PROBLEMS at all with them! I LOVE them! I am so glad I got them!!!
