I Removed My Breast Implants 7.5 Months After I Got Them (5 Months Post-Explant)

I've wanted implants since I was 16, so when I finally got the money for them at the age of 24 I was overjoyed. Finally, I wouldn't look like a teenage boy in a bikini at the pool anymore! I did a ton of research, or so I thought, and went ahead with the procedure at the end of December 2012. I... READ MORE

Wish I'd Never Met Dr. Sullivan - Columbus, OH

I had 350cc silicone, submuscular implants placed. From the moment I woke up, I knew they looked odd. I ended up finding out from a different doctor that (1) they were poorly placed originally, and (2) had further bottomed out. Dr. Sullivan is not one to take criticism well, and when I... READ MORE

My Doctor Lowered my Crease to Insert the Implants, but Now Says She Won't Raise It when Explanting. Is This Normal?

I had 350cc silicone unders placed on 12/27/12. I'm explanting 6/4/13. My PS lowered my crease initially because my nipple to fold measured only 5cm. It now measures around 9... READ MORE

I'm still debating. I have two doctors that I want to consult with, though they're both out of town so I'll need to wait until next year when I have vacation days again. The thought of more surgery definitely frightens me though. READ COMMENT

I debate that a lot. Some days I think what could have been if I'd only gotten maybe 200cc implants, and no lowering of the IMF was done. Other days I remember how uncomfortable they could, especially when sleeping. So, I really don't... READ COMMENT

For the most part, but I definitely still have rough days. I can't help but wonder WHY, especially since millions of women are happy with their implants. It's definitely been a real learning process, and I'm not sure, still, if I'm... READ COMMENT

I only had my implants for 8 months - they had to come out because they were severely bottoming out. READ COMMENT

Yes, my doctor reattached the muscle the best he could. He explained to me that he was unable to bring it all the way done (he explained why way back when, but now I can't remember the details). However, I think if he had failed to... READ COMMENT
