Explant Local

Hi I'm am new to the group. Thank you to all the brave women sharing their stores. I am scheduled to have my explant in November. I have had mild illness I think may be due to my 12 year old implants. The worst symptom is my chronic insomnia that has been going on for 7 years. I also have gluten sensitivities, dairy sensitivities, cold feet, I had anxiety in the past but seem better once I took gluten out of my diet. I suffer mild brain fog as well. Like not being able to remember street names or names of people I just me. That being said some people are trying to scare/help I don't know about not having my capsules removed. I want to do the least invasive procedure possible but still get better.
Has anyone had explant done leaving capsules in and still found relief from their illnesses caused by Brest implants?

Just explanted today

I just had my implants removed under local today. My amazing Dr. did everything I asked and made me feel so cared for and comfortable. He removed my 13 year old saline implants under local in tact. They were clear and in perfect condition and my capsule was thin and translucent. I did not feel any pain other than the Lidocaine prick. I felt tugging and pushing as he took them out whole without puncturing them. I was worried about mold but there was no evidence of any mold. He also washed inside me with fluid that would Kill any bacteria that could be present. I felt fine afterward just a bit emotional. MY poor little boobs look like raisins. I so mad I ever did this to myself to begin with but hey I loved having big boobs as a young woman in SoCal... I am so happy I listened too my instincts to just remove them under local as a few individuals were scaring me into a complete en bloc removal. I'm so glad I didn't torment my body any more than I needed to. It has been very emotional today as I feel sad and deformed at this point. I will be focusing on my health and fitness and give my poor little boobs time to heal. If anyone is considering taking out their implants I would recommend it. It truly is a weight off my chest...

After a year of deliberation I have removed my 13 year old Saline breast implants under local anesthesia. It was a simple procedure. I was given Valium to take before hand and numbed for the actual procedure. I was not in pain during and very little pain after. I was able to just take Tylenol and return to my normal life within 3 days after. My dr was able to removed my implants whole as I was worried there could be contamination. There was no contamination and my implants were in tact and healthy. As to be expected my skin is quite saggy after removal but it has only been a few days. I feel good and am ready to move on with my new body. I had them removed because I have not slept well in 7 years and was generally uncomfortable with the implants.

Portland Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Gabriel is an amazing Doctor. From the moment I met him I knew he was the surgeon for me. He is kind and caring and a top notch doctor. He made me feel so incredibly comfortable with my decision to remove my implants. Not once did he make me feel like I would be deformed or that I should replace my implants. As I drudged through the rollercaoster of emotions of removing my breast implants Dr Gabriel was with me every step of the way. He was willing to accommodate every request I made and did not make me feel any hesitations when I changed my mind about the type of removal surgery I was having (en bloc under general or simple local removal) he called me several times to answer all of my questions and at all times I felt he had my best interest at heart. After my implants were removed he still treated me with kindness and respect at my follow up appointment. I feel he is a truly caring Doctor. Also I Found his entire staff to be very professional and kind.
