I have four kids, and I breastfed them all. In 2003 I decided to get saline implants under the muscle. Wow! Was that a painful process. I went from a 34B to a 34DD. It was devastating. The discomfort of foreign objects in my chest was something I never got over. I thought (obsessed) about my boobs everyday! For 12 years I agonized over the decision I had made, it just wasn't right. Three years in I began to have health issues crop up. My period stopped. I began to lose my hair. I had migraines twice a month, minimum. I developed burning pain in my joints. That was just the worst! It made me feel 80 years old. I had terrible hot flashes. Blurred vision. Liver spots on my face. I was hospitalized in 2008 with liver failure and almost died. I had horribly slow wound healing. I suffered SERIOUS depression. My liver was inflamed, so I looked almost pregnant with a swollen upper abdomen. I retained water. I developed GERD. The indigestion issues were awful with every meal I ate no matter what it was, except "greens only" salad. I was miserable!! But I never made the connection... Then, in June of 2014, I was in my bed with yet another heat-induced migraine. It had me bedridden for two days, when suddenly I thought... Could these migraines be caused by my implants? For 3 years in a row I had been suffering with heat-induced migraines. If I overheated doing house work I would get a migraine! I even got migraines with a hot shower. I googled "could my implants cause heat-induced migraines?" and there it was! Dr Ed Melmed discussing the many health issues that women with implants are reporting from all over. 

Every symptom I had, he named! Including heat sensitivity and migraines... I was astounded! They needed to come out! And, to my utter joy, this absolute angel from The Lord (Dr Melmed) was based in Dallas, TX. Less than two hours away! I immediately made a consult appointment. The staff was awesome!! I fell in love with them!! Janet is the coolest chic ever!! And, Linda is a supreme Goddess!! I could never say enough about Dr Melmed. He has the kindest personality, and puts you at ease like no doctor ever!! From the first meeting, he makes you feel like an old and very dear friend. His confidence in what he's doing and how he's doing it is so reassuring. It certainly helps that he has well over 20 years worth of photos to prove his excellence in restoring natural breasts. I truly love him!! He will always be God's instrument for setting me free!! I was two days into recovery after my explant, when all of my symptoms began to fade away. Every single one!!! I cry every time I think about how this all came together for me, and now I'm free of those awful things that stole years from my life. My husband was and is such a support! He had years stolen from him, as well... So, he is thrilled with how good I feel!! And loves my natural breasts!! THANK YOU, DR MELMED!!! You are an amazingly gifted surgeon- with a sexy French accent and the kindest heart- who has chosen to restore the health of any women who will, and return them to a more beautiful version of their former glory!!
I love you always!! Ginger??
