I posted my story in the wrong section so wanted to start it here so that I could share with others. I was implanted 18 years ago at the age of 22. I am 39 now and ready to say goodbye to them. I was very small before I got them a 32AA and when I got the implants I was a 32 C, after 2 kds and 20lbs I am a 34DD.

I have never felt well sense about a year after the implants. Before them I was very athletic, active, entergetic and happy. I never knew the implants were to blame. After my kids and breast feeding I felt even worse and then after a strep infection a year an a half ago I feel aweful all of th time. I have cronic fatigue and generally feel aweful. I was told by a specialist that they should come out do to biofilms and how the strep can get attached to the implant tne implant and that there is no blood source between implant and scar tissue so the bacteria makes a biofilm and protects itself from antibiotics. Oh this was not just strep throat.

Hello, everything went well. I have no pain at all and feel fine other than the antibiotics making me dizzy and sick. I feel like someone filled my head with cement. Can't wait to be done with them. All the pain post explant I had is gone and I am 7lbs lighter! That was a lot of boob. Anyway, I took before pics and will take after pics when I get the bandages off on wed. I will post them then. Overall feeling glad it is done and happy to have them out.

Hi, I'm back. Still trying to navigate the site so I'm sorry if I don't respond to everyone....I have two little ones and it has been hard to recover and take care of them. Not a lot of time to get on here. I had my bandages removed yesterday and I am very very small...I was before so I'm not sure why I was so shocked. Maybe because I have had huge fake boobs for almost 20 years...lol. But I'm glad they are gone. Maye they will fluff a bit and won't look so strange. Time will tell. My PS said my implants were huge and that they were way too big for my body. He said if I wanted a tiny implant in the future he would put one in and I said "no thanks". Why would I ever have a non-medical surgery ever again? Now that I have children I realize the only thing that matters is being healthy and happy. My four year old said, "Mommy can I see your new boobies", I said sure and showed her. Then aked her, "What do you thing", she said "Well not what I expected". Kids are so funny. I will put up pic soon.

San Francisco Plastic Surgeon

He was very very good and I like that he does his surgery in the hospital. It is taken very seriously. He went to school at Yale. He really was amazing.
