I Want my Gel Implants out Please Help - New Zealand, NZ

Hi this is my first post. I live in New Zealand...

Hi this is my first post. I live in New Zealand and had my implant for 4.5 years. I never really liked them and hated the rippling look and when I bend over that I had from day one. My surgeon has closed his clinic and moved to Auckland and never really listened to what I wanted. Can anyone recommend a Surgeon in Bay of Plenty that is experienced in explant without replacement. Should I get a lift too? I am 42 years old, married with a pretty supportive husband who never wanted me to get them and now is scared that I wont be happy when they are out. Advise please

Two days to go!

My implants are coming out. They will go through areolar to remove them as that's were they were placed! If I ever decide to go with a lift then it's still an option but will need to do this from under breast. I will be having drains for a week even though they will leave capsule just to be safe. Will add a last photo of before explant...

They are out!

I cant believe how good I feel. I had the operation yesterday, the drains are a little uncomfortable but I feel free and light! Can't wait to try on one bras with padding lol. First peek this morning when bandage was taking off and will post a photo soon. Thanks for you kind wishes and happy valentines day everyone ??

Day one 1st peek ....

I am feeling good. They Look bigger in photo that they are. Implant free yippee

Day 12

I am feeling amazing. Starting biking, but not running yet, I am sleeping much better without my implants and with my new push up bra no one us the wiser! I am not one for writing long stories but all I can say us thankyou to this site as it gave be the courage to explant with absolutely no regrets now at all. Coming from little old newzealand it's not the norm to have implants let alone remove them for no medical reason other than not liking the rippling that I had from day one, being larger than I was expecting! And feeling false . All I can say five years of implants was more than enough for me and if I was braver and more financial I would gave removed them sooner. Just waiting for the scars to heal but they look great.
