I haf my implants removed today after 7 years.
I had 350, over the muscle. Started feeling really scared after the pip scandel and was worried for my health. I didnt have pips but realised how damaging implants can be on our bodies.
i feel ok,procedure was simple, im home and feeling fine, i had just sedation and local. Was awake and eating my lunch within an hour.
Not too much pain, just a bit achey.
I am really active and have a 1 year old and it was totally the right time to be back to my self and implant free. I had them put in following an unhappy relationship. Wish i would of met my now husband sooner! I would of never had them put in,in the first place!
Just want to encourage you all , if you feel that its right to go ahead and remove them, do it!!
I didnt take a before photo but ill post some after ones soon when i feel brighter x

dressings off today, a bit sad....

Had my dressings off today and my breasts look really sad.
They are tiny, which im not worried about but they just look really deflated.
Does anyone know if they will fluff up at all? It seems they are really deflated at the top and a bit concave. I feel like i want to cry and that i look terrible.
Did i do the right thing in having them removed? I cannot beleive i thought breast implants were a good idea.
I hope and pray that in time they will look better...can anyone offer any advice?

9 days later.....

So im on the 9th day after surgery. Feeling a bit up and down really but im sure that they are changing and fluffing a teeny bit and i think the skin might be improving a bit.
Ive started applying bio oil all over twice a day but not yet to the scars, doctor said to wait until next week for that.
Wearing sports bras all the time to for support and hopefully encouraging everything back in to the right place.
Things arent too bad really, just the upper poles are a bit indented.....do you think they will fill out?
Can anyone see from the photo if they think there is good potential for fluffing?
This is the first photo i have taken today, i was too scared before now. Its hars to see improvement from day 1 without photos but im sure its there...

when can i exersize?? arggggghhhh!

I LOVE exersize and its driving me mad just sitting here. When can i exersize, even just something light or yoga? X

13 days post explant...

Feeling really good and positive about things. I think i am starting to shape up ok already.....its early days and i have to remember how much my body has been through.
Bought 2 nice sports bras from M & S today which are so comfy and supportive. Also got 2 pretty bras for later on without wiring. Felt really good to buy nice pretty bras.
Heres another photo....not sure if you can actually see much difference here but ive added it anyway.

crop top bra...

please exuse sunburn marks........

Just realised how awful they look in the photos....its not as bad in real life ....

feeling really good, almost 3 weeks post op....

Just wanted to let you all know that i am feeling really good, i went to the gym twice this last week, just for 40mins and just did some lower body stuff and no running, but its a start.
Also, the way my breasts look now is astonishing, i cant beleive how well they have healed. They look pretty much jow they looked before already, the skin has retracted and they have fluffed lots.
I actually really like the way they look and i cant wait to wear a bikini....
I am amazed at what the body is able to do in terms of healing itself. Ive been drinking lots of water and green tea,eating well,massaging breasts with bio oil twice a day and wearing a good sports bra around the clock.
Hope everyone is well, if you are deciding whether to explant, i say go for it! X

8 weeks on......

Ive been signed off by my surgeon.
Feeling great.....so so happy.
I have now got the pre and post operative photos that my PS took....the pre op ones shocked me. I cannot believe that was me!!
Here they are anyway, thought they might be usefull for you all to see x
