I am 26 years old and have had my implants for 6 years. I was a very small A before (pretty flat chested) and went to a full B cup. Although I have enjoyed the implants and they gave me an incredible amount of confidence when I had none, I now feel that I want to go back to my natural size. I don't think i would have any need for a lift because I was so small before, but I am worried about a deflated look. Some people have told me that because I am still young my skin could go back to normal fairly faster. Any comments or words of encouragement?

Thanks so much for all the comments! Everyone is...
A little bit more info about why I do want my implants gone: I was so small before (like 32 AA small), always wearing padded bras and when I would go to the gym I would wear a padded strapless bra underneath my sports bra and always felt uncomfortable in a bathing suit and was worried that guys weren't attracted to me because I didn't have big boobs. I had no confidence and got the surgery without much thought thinking that once I had boobs everything would be better. I really have enjoyed my implants, however, I have always thought they looked really unnatural to me. I have such a small upper body frame and I felt like they always looked completely fake. Plus I have gotten comments from many people who I really didn't even know asking me if I had implants and I HATED that!! And for the past few years I have really started noticing women who are flat chested and I think that the women who embrace that are stunning! Not to say that big boobs are not stunning, just that I think its amazing when someone can just feel confident no matter what. I love Kate Hudson!! She is so tiny with such a flat chest (my size before the implants) and she just completely rocks her body!
All that being said, I have so much more confidence now then I did 6 years ago when I got the implants at age 20, and I believe its confidence not from my body or outward appearance, but from my life experiences and attitude. I hate feeling unnatural and being judged for getting implants, and I think that I could pull off and flaunt a flat chest. I am very concerned that I will be even smaller then I remember being, or that my skin will wrinkle and have stretch marks. I am also concerned about the scars because I still have pretty noticeable scars from getting my implants and I am extremely self-conscious about them. But all-in-all I think this is the right decision for me. I know it will take a long time for me to get used to my old look and I may really regret this decision for a few months after the surgery, but I want to be me again!
8 Months without implants and loving it!!
Dr. Atagi put me completely at ease the first day I met her for my consultation. She is such a calming and kind person and this radiates out of her. I immediately knew I wanted her to be my Dr. On the day of my surgery she had me laughing the whole time! I couldn't have asked for a better experience.
