Scared and Excited - Virginia, VA

First, let me say thank you to all who have gone...

First, let me say thank you to all who have gone before me. Your stories are so helpful. So here goes mine. After nursing 3 kids, I was left with very sad, saggy breasts -- see picture:(

So in 2005 I had saline implants placed under the muscle, they were about 350 CC, along with a benelli lift. For the past two years I've been researching having them removed. I feel they are too big for my body and I have been covering them up ever since I got them. I dread going to the pool with my kids b/c I feel like everyone just stares at my chest. I hate doing yoga b/c they pop out of my tops and I pretty much only wear t-shirts to down play them. I feel like when I look in the mirror, they aren't that bad, but when I see a picture of myself I realize how big and how top heavy I look. They just aren't me, never have been.

Two PS have recommended deflating the implants in order to determine if I need a lift prior to removal. But one said that I may not have enough tissue for a lift and I will be left with very sad, saggy breasts again. I'm okay with very small breasts, I just don't want sad and saggy and am hoping a lift will prevent this. Worst case, at least I will have smaller aerolas:)

Thoughts and words of encouragement. I don't really have any issues other than very very thin skin - I can actually feel the implant on the sides and see it popping through my muscle, lovely right?

I just want to be natural again and am thinking they are going to have to come out eventually. So why not now? I'm 46, 5'2", 115 pounds, scared and excited.
