Post explant update from @withloveshalakolaloba - And just like that, it’s been 4 weeks #breastimplant free ✨
It was an emotional roller coaster leading up to the procedure. I expected even more so after my #explantsurgery was behind me.
I was wrong.
Aside from about 2 hours of feeling a bit sad a week post op, I have been 100% happy, no regrets, STOKED about my decision. As far as #breastimplantillness I am surpassing my expectations! You can swipe left to see all the symptoms I’ve 👊🏼ed out so far. Stomach issues are about 60% improved, and a few other symptoms have seen improvement, but I want to give it more time to survey the progress.
I am just SO happy you guys... and you knew this was a difficult decision for me. Gah, just so happy😭
I am a firm believer in “you do you, boo”. No judgment on plastic surgery at all. Shoot, I still get my lips done once a year, but putting foreign objects in your body, over your chest cavity, so close to your lungs and heart... I don’t know what I was thinking, to be honest. Slightly embarrassed, but also like fuck it, that was fun while it lasted. Happy it’s behind me!
For any babes out there considering breast implants, please look into other options (ie loving the skin you’re in or possibly fat transfer if it’s something you’re really passionate about doing). If you’re like I was... you have breast implants, love them, and don’t think they’re affecting you... just keep this post in the back of your mind. Don’t look at it as me casting shade, cause I’m not AT ALL. It took me two years before enough was enough and my symptoms were to the point of unbearable. I just thought what I was feeling was aging 🤔 that is NOT how a body in it’s late 20’s should have felt.
