Implant Removal After 26 Years - And Then Breast Lift. - Los Gatos, CA

This is a continuation of another review I did regarding my implant removal. I don't have photos of when I had the implants in but they didn't look or feel that great after having them in for 26 years. I have posted photos post explant though, and post opp breast lift today. My story is very similar to many others here. After breast feeding a child and then losing weight, doing aerobics,... READ MORE

26 Year Old Implants Removed Today! Los Gatos, CA

After having implants for almost half my life, they came out today. I was wide awake with no sedation and it took about 40 mins total. My surgeon, Dr. Howard Sutkin, made this so easy. I'm home now with no GA hangover and feel fantastic. I had shoulder and neck pain all the time and I feel such a relief right now. I am so happy to see those implants on the other side! They were double luman... READ MORE

Fabulous Mini - Facelift Results. - Los Gatos, CA

Dr. Sutkin is an awesome surgeon. He's very ethical in the he won't perform procedures if he sees that you don't need them. He's great about explaining what results to expect and what types of things are done during procedures. I have done 3 procedures with him to excellent results and he is reasonably priced. Can't go wrong with this surgeon. READ MORE

Neck Lift With Liposuction Only - San Jose, CA

I'm surprised by the amount of contour given already. This is just 24 hours post opp, so I expect the skin to have a "pinched" look from the compression garmet. The reason I put "not sure" is because it's so early on to see what the final results will be. Wanted to start here though. I'm not in pain, just a little achy. Wearing the compression garmet is probably the hardest part. I'm being... READ MORE

Congrats to you! I too had an implant removal but didn't replace, I did a lift instead. Dr. Sutkin did my lift and removal. I've had him do a a few procedures and just love him! He's the best. READ COMMENT

Thanks for your kind words! The scars are really nothing, especially if you have a good surgeon who doesn't like scars either! Mine does not like scars, surgeries that are obvious to others etc. He's really, really good. I've done a few... READ COMMENT

I did the same thing, under the breast fold. It was easy and didn't take long. I was awake, no issues. Hoping all goes well! READ COMMENT

Aw thank you, Twatson for your kind words. It did help me so much to see long term ongoing updates. I want to do same for others. Will continue to update. READ COMMENT

I'm so sorry. I hope things get better very soon. I think they will. If not, I think these things are easy to fix but I really understand the pain you're going through about this. Very upsetting and frustrating. I hope things work out... READ COMMENT
