Hello ladies, It has been a few months since I found realself thru a search engine on breast implant removal. First I would like to thank all of you for sharing your experiences, you all have helped me soooo much. I am hoping by sharing my experience maybe I can help someone too . It was 1997 I was a 34A and, when I got my BA 34C "not sure off cc's sorry" with mentor smooth saline implants, submuscular, with areola incisions, by Dr.Peter Somers, MD. I was always very pleased even more so after having my first child. I never really experienced any serious problems ,occasionally I did experience soreness and hardening in both breasts, but honestly I thought it just had something to do with my hormones. I went into menopause extremely early so I am assuming this had alot to do with my issues. All in all seeing it has been almost 18 years I think I have been more than lucky! My search to explanting was due to a strange pain in my right breast over the last few months that has come and gone and not to mention its desire to move where-ever it wants as you will see in the frontal pic., which of course sent me online to see if there are any issues that may be arising.
I have been through 3 consultations and have chosen Dr. Rothfield in Weston Florida, he and his staff have been awesome and very accommodating and my surgery is set for 7/23. I have to thank and send a hug to " Ileana47 " I read and saw her results and made my last consultation with Dr.Rothfield and very glad I made that third consultation.
So glad I found Realself and all of you here.... such amazing strong women!!
I'm me again!
Well I'm me again, had the surgery at about 11:30, Dr.Rothfield was awesome and the Surgery Center was so professional and accommodating they let hubby sit with me till anesthesia kicked in, and when I woke hubby was walking in! It was awesome to have him there, I was pretty nervous but everything went very smoothly. I will post more pics, and give some more detail as to the procedure at the surgery center when I get back home tomorrow and yep I tried to peak :) alot of gauze and tape for now looks pretty flat on the top but very little pain and no pain meds needed as of yet. I am so freakin happy right now, I even had hubby take me straight to Flannigans for a huge chicken ceaser salad to celebrate. Thank you ladies for all of your support "huge hugs to all of you"
