46 Year Old Implant Removal No Lift, 300cc Above Muscle - in for 7 Years - Chesterfield, GB

As with many on this site I had very low self...

As with many on this site I had very low self asteem after a 15 year, abusive, childless marriage. My implants were a gift to me for my 40th and I went from a 34aa to a 34dd even though I asked for a b/c cup. Initially I was thrilled with them and yet over the years as I have become more athletic and happier with who I am the implants have started to feel alien to me and are scheduled for removal tomorrow..... This site has been an invaluable font of knowledge and has led to me having very few nerves about what is to come but rather continued reassurance that this is completely the right thing to do - wish me luck as this time tomorrow they will be gone and I really can't wait!!!

They're gone.....

Just back from theatre and ready feel fine and dandy..... No drains and indications I at least have a bit of breast tissue :)

Day one.....

Well my first 'viewing' was nerve racking and pleasantly surprising - they looked much better than I thought they would although I have to admit stood there in my paper pants I didn't look too closely...... On arriving home I feel a little tender and having shared them with my mum, then came the emotions I've heard others talk about and I suppose reality hit!! More upset at what I did seven years ago I think than what has happened in the past 24 hours - they look kind of sad and that's how I'm feeling right now. I shall I am sure, like my little boobies, bounce back as I know 100% I have done the research get thing. I'll post photos as soon as I feel able xx

Eeek...... First photo after explant!!

I knew they were tiny before and it looks as though I certainly haven't been blessed with any more breast tissue!!! The sag of them is a bit of a shocker so hoping the fluffing commences sooner rather than later. That said they never looked good out of a bra before so I need to remember that :) it took a lot to share this photo as I am very conscious they might freak some people out lol xxx

Day two......

I'm planning on taking a photo everyday as I am now feeling more confident about the outcome and think reminding myself of progress made, however small, will help reinforce this...... I'm very tired today so need to maybe rest more!! The photo I think shows a weeny bit of improvement so all good :) xxx

Day three..... No change and feeling happy :)

Having said I'd take a picture every day I suppose I hoped thatbyetbagainbthere would be an improvement this morning however that said they sure do look cute in my sports bra and a marks and spencer post surgery bra also fits really well so I'll be ordering in different colours today!!! In myself I am again feeling a little tired but little discomfort which is super..... Another day of feeling really pleased I have done this xxx

Dressings are off.....

Well apart a little reaction to the plasters I have to say I am ecstatic with the outcome - two weeks on and already they are starting to look like breasts!! After removal of the 'plasters' I have had some irritation but to be fair nothing of any consequence.... I've ordered some scar serum but have to admit to being very impressed by both the condition positioning of them. I've started exercising again with the nurse just suggesting that I avoid heavy weights for a little while yet - I've been spinning and managed light kettle bells and even side plank (something I hate doing at th best of times) I start a new job on Monday so no doubt that will show me whether I really am as recovered as I feel. So happy with ththe new me :) xx
