52 YO Painful Implants. Wilmington, DE
Hello Ladies, Just had my 10 YO saline implants...
3 Days Post Explant
Both shells made from medical grade silicone rubber, just as chemo ports are,.. It's the fill material that is treated differently when removing or ruptured.
...Hope this is OK to add here, if not, please LMK!
Day of Explant!!

2 top Docs said removal of capsule actually causes more damage to pec. muscle. Unless implants are silicone, mine were not. Likely had grade 2 Capsular contracture, however capsule is collagen, and will eventually shrink down and disappear not the foreign body had been removed. Super happy, as I have wanted them out for many years. Painful tight breasts are a thing of the past! I was concerned, as most of the posts I read all involved general anesthesia, drains, etc.. I drove myself there and home, and I have a few sutures under each breast. No major sagging or stretched out skin. Was numbed well with local, procedure went well!
