Breast Implant Removal: 29, Adult Model and Mother of Two - Phoenix, AZ

Beginning my Breast Implant Removal Journey. I was...

Beginning my Breast Implant Removal Journey. I was very young when I made the decision to get them. At this point in my life I want to feel "naturally beautiful" and love myself for who I am.

I got my implant in 2003 and I have never had any problems with them. I was very happy with how they turned out. I feel lucky to have gotten such a beautiful job.

I hope I can inspire other women that are considering removal to find hope and strength.

My decision to Remove my Breast Implants.

My Back Story
Many don’t know this about me but I started taking care of myself at 15. I left school my Jr year of High School completed my GED and started working. I had a fake ID so could pretty much do what I wanted.

I don’t know why now but when I was 17 before I was even developed I lied about my age and had breast implant surgery. For years I have loved my implants and am lucky to say that I have never had a problem with them. I am thankful for such a beautiful job and the success they have helped me achieve in the Adult Industry. I don’t hate plastic surgery and I would never say otherwise.

But over the years something has changed. I don’t know if it is that I am older and a mother now or my time away from the Adult Industry. Something that once filled me with confidence and joy has become quite the opposite. I constantly worry and stress about something happening with them. In addition to the physical symptoms I have developed over the years like back pain. They have become a burden on my mind. I also miss things like running, completing yoga postures correctly, sleeping on my tummy, and feeling petite. I want to be natural and feel beautiful. These are some of the reasons that I have decided to remove my breast implants.

The Surgery
The actual surgical procedure is fairly straight forward and my down time should be minimal. But I am prepared that I could require a second surgery depending on how I heal. But at this time I am being positive. I feel like having them removed is the easy part but dealing with the mental and emotional effects of having them removed will be much more difficult. Because I have had my implants my entire adult life. I am looking for a therapist to help me cope with my choices and move forward.

Thank you everyone for the love and support,

All Scheduled for April 23rd 2015

I have been working up the courage to write another post. A week ago I scheduled and paid for my surgery. I also booked my flights and hotel. I will be traveling from Maryland to AZ to have my procedure performed by Dr. Meger.

I will be honest I am anxious and excited. I took a few days to read through the paper work. Some woman on here are so brave. Every day I check for more recovery updates from fellow ex-plant patients. Every post is so inspiring. Trying to keep my spirits up.

Today is the Day

hey ladies, Sorry I haven't written anything I guess I have been anxious about the surgery. Well the time has come and I am in the car on the way to surgery. Thank you for your support. Hugs

Day 1 (Operation Day)

Feeling Good (Breast Wise) no pain :). But the anesthesia made my tummy really upset. :(

First Pictures

On Friday I got home from AZ. I had to stay pressure wrapped for 48 hours. My man has been really strict makin sure I follow all recovery directions and wouldn't let me take any pics yesterday. But I snuck one today.

1 Week Post Op

Well I made it. 1 week post op. It has been a difficult time I beleieve I am allergic to anesthesia. And I had a few moments of low blood pressure. But I made it. Happier and feeling more like myself everyday. I have been using this St. Ives on my Breast but not on top of my breast not near my incisions

1st Day without Pain

Today was the first day I woke up and felt like I didn't have any pain (or fear of pain). It has been a adjustment my spouse helped me work through some mental emotional bumps. I was walking around creating like a safety zone for my chest lol so I'm trying to relax. And then overcoming my fear of actually letting the water run on directly on my chest in the shower. I don't know what I was so afraid of. I cried. lol I know he thinks I am weird. LoL

2 Weeks Post Op

I feel better and better every day. I am starting to get used to touching and handling my Breast like "normal".

4 Weeks Post Op

Hi Ladies,
I hope you are well. Here I am 4 weeks post-op. Feeling more and more like myself everyday.

I will say the most important things are staying hydrated and moisturized I notice a big difference on days when I don't drink enough water or don't do lotion at least twice a day. I still have a tiny bit of bruising under neath. And I have a spot on the top of each of my breast where the skin is taking just a little bit longer to bounce back. But I can tell a huge difference since they were first removed.

6 Weeks Post Op

I took this pic yesterday. Sorry I haven't been really active my oldest son had to have ear surgery and I have been super busy with his pre op stuff. This weekend I am going to work on a video and go over my bras and lotions. I really look forward to sharing with you.!!

6 Months Post Op

Hello All,
It's been awhile since I updated. My husband thought I was obsessing over my recovery and posting too much and it was affecting the my psychological progress of my explant. Which I think it a very important part of this surgery. We decided as a team to just resume normal life and wait to see how everything turned out. I am extremely happy with my decision to remove my implants and have been a happier person since. It is one of the best decisions I have ever made. And I have no regrets. Here is my 3 day pic vs my 6 month picture. I am sure you can see the difference.
Thank you for the support,
Melissa
