Saline Explant

Ok, so I'm having these removed this week and super excited! The doctor before did a wonderful job, and they look really good as is now, but I just want to be me again. I got them 16 years ago, no problems, just a little rippling. As a marathon runner, they hamper my running time to say the least, as well as cause me to lean over when I run. I'm not too concerned with the way they will look afterward, just hope the skin retracts back to not cause a lot of sagging. They were a B before I got them and now a 34 DDD. I'm just wanting to be healthier! I'll add updates as this progresses.


Few more before shots

They're so big it's hard to maneuver for taking!


Ok ladies, so today went pretty well. No pain just a little pinch feeling from the anesthesia syringe. They just strapped me to a table, turned on my favorite tunes, cleaned me up then Dr. Stagnone used a laser to open up not even an inch incision, drained the saline and popped the implants out. Procedure only took about 40 minutes! Longest part was the stitching. Only around 5 minutes to take implants out. Go back in 2 weeks for stitch removal. Take bandages off this Sunday. Will post pick then!

Post-op Day 2!!!

Alrighty, it's day 2 and I just took off the bandages and had my first shower! I was pleasantly surprised at the results I have from just 2 days after surgery. I'm very happy I did this!! Can't wait until they fluff up a bit. Pics below and more to come! Thanks for the support btw...

One week today

This compression is killing me! But hanging on.

9 Days Post Op

Compression, water, vitamins and collagen working well I think.

15 Post-op

Ok, got the stitches out are a few pics from today. Sorry for the bad pic quality! Have been using some silicone strips over the scars and am supposed to for at least 6-8 weeks, or until I see the improvement I want. Quit wearing the compression bandage too. The nurse said after 2 weeks there really it doesn't need to be worn anymore. Also doing massage with coconut oil.

This guy is good. Really good. I had a breast...

This guy is good. Really good. I had a breast implant removal, with implants put in by a different surgeon 16 years prior, and I must say, without reservation, that Dr. Stagnone does amazingly good work. His stitching is beautiful. He also made me feel very comfortable each time I say him, and on the operating table he told me everything he was doing, and we also talked about cool stuff too, hobbies, etc...I will definitely choose Dr. Stagnone again for anything else I need done! His office staff is very professional and made me feel comfortable, answered any questions I had, and were right one with everything. Thanks Valerie!
