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.
