Breast implant removal with Fat Transfer . - United Kingdom, GB

Hi everyone I would be really grateful to anyone...

Hi everyone
I would be really grateful to anyone who has info on having fat transfer to breast after having their implants removed.! I am looking to do that but not sure where to go. I am looking forward to getting my breast implants removed and feeling free but it would be nice to get a fat transfer done too. Looking for the right surgeon who is able to do this.., not sure, Is it even possible..? Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks X
Hi Girls.., i have been looking at different profiles on here and feel happy to see great results. All of you sharing your stories have truly been an inspiration to me. The surgeons abroad seem fantastic although for my comfort and convenience I want to stick to a surgeon in the UK. I was impressed with Mandy's story and decided to book an appointment to see Mr Mehboob Ali at West Midlands Hospital in Halesowen. I spoke to the lovely sec called Jane this afternoon and she had a slot for tomorrow afternoon which i've happily taken. Jane is so nice to talk to and very helpful. So hopefully now my journey has begun lol..! I will keep you all posted on my consultation tomorrow. Wish me luck !X

Thanks Pooch, ok i am size 8-10 and before my breast augmentation in 2002 i was full perky 34A, after my BA i was 34C, doesn't sound too big but trust me they look full and noticeable. I had 275cc in the left side and 300cc in the right side which were placed over the muscle. Any more questions please feel free to ask. I am really looking forward to my consultation today, feel excited like a little kid loll.! Will do an update later on how it went X

Had consultation with Mr Mehboob Ali 22/01/2014

Hi everyone,
I had my consultation with Mr Ali yesterday and very happy with the outcome.
Mr Ali is so polite and took time to explain everything from the pros and cons which is involved with most surgeries. There was no pressure his side and he said a few times that i should take my time and think about it. Mr Ali was honest with the results i will achieve and very informative on how he does the technique. He examined me and was happy with the fat donor site too. He said that he can do fat transfer to my breasts after removing the 11 year old implants. He said i will be i cup less than i am which i really dont mind because i just want these out. I am 34c at the moment so will end up with a B. To be honest my first priority is to get them out and mentally feel healthier. The fat transfer option is an added bonus ! He said i can also go back to him after 12 months if i wanted more fat transfer.
So i have booked a provisional appointment for surgery in 1 month time but i have to wait to hear from his secretary for confirmation. I am really excited and so happy to have met him. He is a lovely man and really listens and understands.
Oh and i mentioned this website and names etc. Will keep everyone posted nearer the time, any questions please feel free to ask xX
I'm looking to have this done too. Will definitely be following you to see how it goes!

Had a followup with nurse and she took off bandages and i am soooooooo happy with the results.!!! Oh my God much better than anticipated. I know the size will go down a little but even to have something more than being an empty pocket is a dream come true .! I am so glad i chose Mr Ali.! ( thanks to mandymellons story on this forum ) He is magnificent.! And he is so humble and caring. No attitude as some surgeons get big headed but he is down to earth. I will send u pics before and after if u want to see. I know its early days and the fat will go down bit still remarkable. Sorry my sentences are bit weird i am just sitting in a busy waiting room waiting for taxi. I live in London and chose to come to West midlands because of Mr Ali and i am so thankfull to God that its been worth it. .!!! Everyone please feel free to ask any questions. Lotsa love, Natasha .!

Just over 2 weeks ! X

Hi everyone its been just over 2 weeks since i had implants out and i am happy with results. Thank God i havnt had any complications or problems and pain has only been in one breast more than other and also in the liposuctioned areas (waist and stomach) which was expected.
I am still on painkillers but can go without for a longer period. Thank God my scars have healed beautifully and only bruising still left. I am going to post pics now and would like to add that the pics really dont do justice as they look better and fuller in real. I just hope to God they stay this size lol.!! Oh and i must mention after i had my breast augmentation 11 years ago i lost alot of sensation in my nipples but now i have got it back .!! Yipeee.!!! cant belive these small things make a difference to how you feel. Mentally i am so happy they are out and if i could turn back time i would never put my body through this stress. But i just was fascinated with big breasts at that time, yes i know i was young and stupid lol.! But Now i have learnt the hard way and grateful for health. I truly beleive a handful is youthfull and classy. Clothes fit better and i look slimmer too. My old 34C bras are fitting me better which is making me more happy. All in all i thank the Beautiful Lord it all went well. Wish everyone all the best X

Before and after pics x

Day before surgery
Then 1 week post surgery
Then just over 2 weeks x
Hi Natasha. Going for my appointment with Dr. Ali next week! How is that fat staying? have you been told to rest/keep them warm etc? What sort of aftercare? I can't believe you only had such a small amount transferred and you look that big (only big in my terms because I'm flat, so don't worry you look amazing, I am so jealous). Do you have a pic of the size you were before implants (in bikini for instance), as it would help me to compare what I could look like. Do you know how much donor fat was removed to achieve them? I'm slim so don't know yet if he will want to do the procedure. All the best and keep posting. x

Hi Eva, thanks for your message. The fat is doing well. He transferred 200cc to the right and 180cc to the left breast. My right breast was always a little smaller lol. With regards to the fat It has gone down a little but i still have a heavy handful as before my Implants i was flat as a pancake. Even the A cup bras fitted loosley loll..! I have an athletic build so been slim most of my life but since last year i had started gaining wait around my stomach and waist which was quite ugly but it came in handy ! Sorry hun i dont have a picture of before i had implants but i was seriously flat. It runs in the family, i blame my mum, nan etc lol.! Ok so which day is your appointment..? as i have a follow up with Mr Ali next week too. Might see you lol.. X

Oh and the aftercare was just resting, taking my medication on time and not doing any heavy lifting and trying to relax. It is nice to rest but very boring as i fealt the time wasn't moving, it was a little depressing for me although i had recorded some of my favorite TV programmes which came in handy. My life is quite hectic as i have children and a (useless) hubby and i work partime too. I rested for about 1 week then gradually got back into day to day activities. By the second week i was cooking, cleaning, washing, doing my outside chores like shopping and bills etc. Also went back to work second week too. Since i have got back to my normal day to day routine the time just whizzes past lol..! Will be one month in 2 days and i am still happy with my results. Dr Ali is fantastic..!x

Just gone 2 months and Happy

Its been 2 months since my removal of implants with fat transfer and i am soooo glad i did it.! Very happy with result and even more fantastic is that my old 34C bras fit me perfectly. Obviously they dont stick out so much but they are lovely and natural. Mr Ali done a great job.!!
Hi Natasha. Looking good girl! Incredible results - you can start to relax now, I doubt you will lose much more now you have reached the 2 month mark. He has done an amazing job. You said you had 180cc and 200cc implants removed, then replaced with the same amount of fat, have I got that right? Only those size implants aren't that big and yet you look big (compared to me!). So I just wondered how you started out before anything? Did you have a cleavage pre implants? BTW, I'm in London tomorrow (Wed) for a dental appointment. Do you have a day off? I know it's short notice so don't worry, I shall be up again next month. Eve x
Reply
I agree Eva, they look as big (but a much better shape) than mine and I have 460cc's!! Not sure Mr Ali will be able to replace that much fat. Looking forward to seeing your 3 month update Natasha, as from some others I have seen that tends to be the time u will see final results. Do you have any lumps in the breasts? It was very encouraging to read you have regained sensation where it was once lost as I am exactly the same and would LOVE to get the feeling back although I am aware this may not happen for me. To both of you lovely ladies, I have been reading your posts and it did make me chuckle to read about you both having skinny legs and wish u could build them up coz I am the opposite and have calves virtually the same size as my ankles...the dreaded cankles haha. Even tho Im only a size 8 I have always wanted longer slimmer legs, and envy women with dainty ankles and calves but thats not gonna change so I will just wear trousers for the rest of my life lol ;) x

Hi Eva nice to hear from you. Yes i am covering colleague at work otherwise i would off loved to meetup loll.! Not to worry Will happen one day, .! Ok now about my boobs, well before my breast augmentaion i never had a cleavage. My breasts were very small with no drop. Its hard to explain but they were like 12,13 year old girls in puberty.! (i will try and find a pic on the internet which is a close match to how they were) So i was perky A but they were just embarrasing. After having my BA they stuck out alot and natirally dropped over the years with the weight of the implants and age of course. The funny thing was Mr Ali said he was able to inject the same amount of fat as the size of implants due to my chunky waistline lol.! And that waistline derived from an All Inclusive holliday as i was eating loads loll.!!! Anyhow i am glad i didnt excercise it away as it came in handy. So all in all very happy and from someone who was flat as a pancake i am finally glad to have a nice pear without implants.! Real good feeling i must say. Ok Eva better go catchup soon x

Hi Girls just an idea of the size before BA

I dont have a pic of what my boobs looked like before BA but i found this pic on the internet which are a close match as possible. I had my BA at the age of 30 and i was size 6-8 with hardly any fat. With time and age i have put on weight and size 10 now. Hope this helps x
Hi Natasha, hows it going? Would be really grateful if u could put ur pics back up along with a recent update. Many Thanks, Angie xx
