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.

Day 1 (Operation Day)
23 Apr 2015
Day of treatment
Feeling Good (Breast Wise) no pain :). But the anesthesia made my tummy really upset. :(
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
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
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,
