Implant removal and uplift? Anyone had this?

Implant removal and uplift? Anyone had this?

Post by louisajane82 on 2nd June 2016, 8:37 am

Hi there!

Haven't been here in a while! I had my implants nearly 5 years ago, I had quite 'low' boobs (surgeon's words lol!) but I was scared of an uplift at the same time because of the scarring, and also I was hoping that with just implants I would get the look that I was after, kind of Kelly Brook type natural.. This is what I ended up with and I've been happy with them up until around a year ago.. I feel like they have drooped a bit, and I am longing to wear things that I don't need a bra for, but can't.. I also have had issues with one of them flipping over and this has got progressively worse and is becoming annoying!! And freaky!!! I have also had some random pains so now I am wondering whether to just have the implants taken out and have an uplift with my own breast tissue only. I am not so worried about size, I had 34d to start with so hopefully there will be enough there!! 

I am wondering whether anyone else has done this or anything similar? I am worried about scarring around nipples mostly, but seen some great recovery pics and my original scars don't show at all now, and haven't for ages..

I originally had surgery with Mr Meleagros at Transform and I have been super happy with the results, he is a great surgeon, and I have booked a consultation with him in 2 weeks so I will see what his advice is. I just wondered if anyone had any advice or experience with either just an uplift or removal and uplift?

Thanks so much - I love this forum, just been having a read through some uplift threads and love the way everyone is so supportive :)

Hey,

I have just had mine removed, no uplift though. I had my 380s for 3yrs and was pretty happy with them but times change and have prioritise my health! I had been getting night sweats since they were 'installed' and I'd had enough of worrying about them in the future.

I only had them removed 3days ago but already I feel so much better, skin slightly droopy but I'm not stressing as in time I'm sure it will improve.

Hi, I've just got back from seeing Mr Meleagros because my left implant has flipped. I had surgery 7 years ago. I'm pretty sure it flipped before I was pregnant with my son but didn't do anything about it because I fell pregnant. Now I need to decide if I do a remove and replace or a remove, replace and uplift . What did you go for in the end LouisaJane?

Hi there!

Yes I saw Mr Meleagras and I have to say he wasn't particularly nice, although he did say that the pockets for the implants weren't right and that because there had been flipping that he would do corrective surgery, because I had reported the flipping within the first year. That would only cover implant replacement though, not an uplift. Transform then came back to me and it turns out I was by that point of seeing him 1 week outside of the Statute of Limitations or something which meant that they didn't have to do anything at all. I am loathe to go back to them to get anything else done, so now my plan is to next year go to Prague to have the implants removed and an uplift as it's so much cheaper there!!! And I have read very good reviews... So I'm still in the same place unfortunately, sorry I can't help! I'm sorry about your implant flipping, it's horrible and then also knowing you'll have to have more surgery to sort it as well!

I will definitely go for removal and uplift when I do get to having surgery again. I found it hard to find other people online who had been through the same.
