Implant removal without Lift -Finally Complete! - North Carolina, NC

I am 26 years old and have had my implants for 6...

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...

Thanks so much for all the comments! Everyone is really giving me great advice, insight, and new things to consider. Not to mention, a ton of confidence to go through with my explant!
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!!

Sorry for not updating sooner, but in September of 2014 I finally went through with my explantation surgery. I opted to be awake because it was cheaper and I hate the feeling of being put under. The surgery was super easy and relatively painless. There was some light tugging that was a little strange but the Dr. kept me laughing the whole time. The few days following the surgery were a little rough- I ended up being mildly allergic to the pain meds and the anti-nausea medication I was given and we took a long road trip to meet my future in-laws the day after my surgery (whew!). After about 4 days I was feeling pretty much back-to-normal. My boobs definitely looked a bit sad and droopy but within a week they had sprung right back to their normal tiny selves. I am so happy that I went through with this surgery, although I don't regret getting the implants one bit. I am back to a 32AA and not being able to find any sexy bras in my size which I'm learning to deal with! I've decided I will rock the tiny boob look and the other week I actually wore a plunging top with no bra (never would have happened with 34Bs!). I love not having to worry about cleavage and looking too sexy (I never have cleavage now). I had my implants for 7 years and now, at age 28, I am about to get married to the love of my life with my natural tiny boobies! I couldn't be happier! I definitely encourage women who want to go back to their natural selves to go for it! Pictures to come!
Dr. Atagi

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.
