Going Back to God's Original Design!!! - Tampa, FL

Hello Ladies!!! I first want to thank you all for...

Hello Ladies!!!
I first want to thank you all for sharing your stories on here. It is nice to read real, honest reviews about these major decisions. I am a 39 year old having 14 year old saline, sub-muscular implants removed. I was a small B cup prior to my BA and went to a 34C. The decision was due to my thought that my then boyfriend liked big boobs. He never told me or made me feel bad about myself. But when your guy watches pornography , you tend to be mislead and compare yourself to unrealistic body images. Hollywood and the porn industry do not help us ladies embrace our God given beauty. I hated the fact that I given in and had a "boob job." I was constantly hiding them and hunching my back to not have these plastic boobs sticking out. I couldn't enjoy hugging, sleeping on my stomach, or a good relaxing massage. I have wanted to remove my implants for a very long time . I am married to a wonderful, supportive husband. Yes, that money for removal is going to be painful but that is just a bigger testimony of my eagerness to be all natural and healthy. My friend recently came to me and had a BA done. It broke my heart. I wish she would have talked to me prior but how was I to be a good example when I still had my implants. That was the last straw! I am done! I want to be an advocate for ladies and young girls to know they are loved by their creator and to embrace their uniqueness and natural beauty! In all honesty I am excited and anxious at the same time. My consultation was this morning. I have peace about my decision. Even after my doctor said mine look symmetrical and soft and was I sure I wanted to remove them? YES! I am ready! This is right in my heart. I am at peace. I will post pics soon. Love to all you ladies out there! God bless! :)

One week tmw until I am freeeeeee!

Here are a couple photos finally. This is with my saline implants still in. I don't have any pre-BA pics to post. I was a 34 A/B prior to my BA. I am one week tmw from my explant. I forgot to talk to my doctor about the capsules. I don't want to worry about anything left behind but my price ($3100) tells me it is the implant removal only. Any words of advice about the capsules left in? I will make a call and try to find out what my PS's plans are.

It's here!

Tomorrow is my big day! I am so excited and can't wait to be on the other side. I do feel a little anxious but that makes sense before any surgery. I cleaned the house so I can heal and just relax. My husband is flying home from a work trip early to drive me and take care of me post surgery. I really am falling in love all over again with this man. So supportive. Thank you Jesus! I pray I sleep well tonight. Thank you ladies for your courage and sharing your journeys. Even though I had decided to explant before finding this site..... I am calm and feel like I know what to expect because of your posts. Thank you for you honesty. O.K. deep breaths and strong prayer. I think I will go have a glass of water before my cutoff time for fasting. I will be going under general tmw. I will report back asap. Love to
you all! :)

I am on the other side!

Hello all! I will keep this short and sweet for I am feeling nauseous and sore. I will give details tmw about the procedure. I am very happy but just a little more sore than I expected. Pain is really around the incision area. I had under the breast removal. I am taking the pain meds and sleeping a lot today. Just wanted to update to let you know I am o.k. and the surgery went well. One of the best decisions of my life! Ginger ale, toast, and yogurt is all I could get down today. It is all worth it ladies! Have a blessed evening all and I will post more tmw. :)

Day 2 post OP

Feeling much better today. I took off the ace bandage that they had wrapped me in and put on a sports bra. Much , much, much better! I feel like I can walk upright now! So if you feel that horrible pressure on your incision sites and walk bent over like an old lady, then try this! What a difference that made! I had went under general anesthesia so I was getting prepped one second then the next thing I know, I am waking up. My PS had said after op that everything looked good and was intact. So he removed the implants without draining first. I had talked with an assisting doctor prior to op and she had said they would leave the capsules but score (can't remember exact word ) them so they would not collect fluid and cause future problems. I am so happy to be done! My breasts feel so soft and natural! Just like many of you have mentioned, you forget what a natural breast feels like! Lol So today I am watching movies and reading and lots of rest. Hoping to make it to church tmw. I will keep you all posted as changes occur. Come on fluff! :)

Day 3 post op

First of all, thank you for all the kind words and support on here! Us ladies really do need each other to help encourage one another through these big life changing decisions. I believe we were created that way. So I hope that I am doing my small part to help someone with their decision to explant. It is day 3 and I love running ( actually more like walking ) around with no sports bra on. It feels nice to not have the pressure on my girls while they heal. Just finished my last antibiotic and taking my pain meds still. I have my check up with my PS tmw afternoon. I feel pretty good all around. I love feeling my soft breast tissue! Yesterday I even made it to church. I came out in an old dress that I would hunch my back in due to fake implants. My husband was in awe! He said how beautiful I looked and could not believe how it really looked like "me". He has only known me with the implants and has been loving my new body. He says I look the way I am supposed to now. I feel like I am myself and can smile and know there is nothing fake about me. It is an inner peace that shines outward. Ladies, You can do this! Real , authentic, and UNIQUE is where it is at!!!! God didn't make us to all look the exact same. Embrace your small , perfectly imperfect breasts! Love and support to you all! :)
Dr. Paul Albear

Dr. Albear was amazing! He did not try to talk me into any other surgeries and was very professional. Very efficient and listened with care. I would highly recommend Dr. Albear.
