I had 350cc above muscle smooth gel implants when...

I had 350cc above muscle smooth gel implants when I was 21. I was always an A cup and never felt womanly. I used to wear 'Chicken fillets' in a already padded bra every day. I wouldn't go out without them. You could say I was extremely self conscious. I was happy with the implants, although they may have been slightly too big for my frame. I wanted to be a C cup but ended up needing a DD bra. I guess I just got used to them. But they were in the way when exercising. Over the past 5 or 6 years I have had extreme migraine headaches which make me vomit, extremely cold extremities, extreme pms, anxiety and depression. I did not put my symptoms down to the implants until late last year when I read an article online. It was like something just clicked and I knew I had to have them out. I was getting married so wanted to wait until after the wedding as my dress needed filling out in the bust area. So two months after my wedding I am implant free! Today is day 1 post op and I feel amazing!! I can not believe how good my breasts look. Almost as though I never had implants. This is the best thing I ever did and cannot wait to see if my health improves. I'm drinking raw Apple cider vinegar in water every day and also raw green smoothies to help detox my body. I have had no pain at all. I know the scar's are there but it's not enough to even take paracetamol. I cannot express enough to anyone thinking about getting them- don't do it! Or anyone thinking about having them out! Go for it! I think they helped my self confidence when I was young but I think as you get older you learn to love yourself for who you are not how big your breasts are. I will update as time goes on but for now I am so happy :)

Day 2

So after my first post yesterday I think I still had anaesthetic on board which was helping me feel so good. That wore off around midday and I was quite teary. I started having some pain so took two paracetamol and went to sleep. Today I woke up feeling ok. Little bit of pain. Have taken two paracetamol and am feeling ok. I have been a little annoyed at myself for what I have put myself through getting them in the first place and now this. But just taking it day by day. I think the little bit of pain and being out of action for a little while is well worth the long term health benefits.

Please help!

I've been reading a lot since I'm resting all day. I have come across information that suggests to totally detox your body capsules should be removed. I'm just wondering if I've done the right thing not having them removed as I don't want to continue to feel unwell due to chemicals being retained in surrounding tissue. Can anyone advise me who has had experience with this. Thank you.
Melbourne Plastic Surgeon

Dr Taylor was extremely friendly and explained the procedure well. I had total confidence in her from initial meeting to surgery day. All their staff were friendly and efficient. I did not see another surgeon as I trusted I was in good hands. The day of surgery was fantastic. I could not fault the clinic or staff. I would recommend Dr Taylor to anyone thinking about having breast implants removed.
