Plastic Surgery Regrets
I'm going on my third consult on Jan.16th. for getting explanted. I got my 1st mentor set Feb.2000. I went from a 34B to a 34D. I had asked for a C. In may of 2004 my left implant (saline) failed. I didn't even know it that morning till I went to shower, I was mortified. I called the PS & was in surgery in three days. It didn't make me sick & as I said I didn't feel the failure. The next set of mentor saline implants were 100cc more in size making me a very fluffy D. Like tires the PS replaced both the left & the right.
For over 6 months I've known that my 20 year old silicone implants have both ruptured and need to be removed
For over 6 months I've known that my 20 year old silicone implants have both ruptured and need to be removed. The implant removal will be taken care of through Medi-care, however it will not pay for a lift or smaller saline ones implanted. I have many issues, To get a visual I'll attach some photos. First let's back up, as to how I got here.
I, too, am almost 56 years old and have had implants since I was 30. I was very tiny, an AA-A cup at best. After my first set, I developed what I later learned were contractures and lived with them that way for years. After an episode of skin cancer which sent me to a plastic surgeon, I learned they were NOT supposed to be like that, and had them replaced as he felt I should not just explant. That was five years ago, and since then I have had at least three contracture release surgeries.
Hi there Guest...the comment from Rach above "This guy sounds really toxic to you and its my guess that he's the reason you're feeling so insecure" is 100% correct.
Hi everyone, I have been so encouraged by reading your stories. I had implants put in 12 years ago and now want my own body back despite everyone now telling me that they had no idea and that they always thought I had great boobs.I was a 32A and went to a 32 D which wasn't what i asked for: I only wanted to be a 32C maximum. My op is booked for a week on Wednesday and i keep getting very scared. The thing is, my surgeon is going to remove the implants and then do a breast lift which means cutting up to the nipple and removing the nipple and then placing it higher on the breast.
