Exchanged Saline Implants For Gummy Bear Silicone Implants (Moderate Profile 650 CCs)
Procedure specific satisfaction rating
Breast implant revision
My name is Kelsi, I am 27 years old and I am from Panama City, Florida.
As a child, I never developed boobs. I had a small A cup that looked like a 12 year old girls, but on a plus size girl, who was 6 ft tall. When I was 18, I had a breast augmentation performed by plastic surgeon Dr. Phillip Nunnery. He did an amazing job! I had saline 350 CC implants put in. It took me from an A to a D breast size. I had a smooth recovery from my surgery too. The implants were placed submuscular and I had a small incision placed right at where the color change of my areola is.
The first two days after my breast augmentation surgery were the worst as far as pain goes, but after weight loss, I decided to have an abdominoplasty (tummy tuck). I decided that while I was under, I would have my saline implants exchanged for gummy bear silicone implants. Dr. Andrew McAllister was the plastic surgeon who did these two surgeries for me.
For this implant exchange, I decided to go with moderate profile 650CCs for my implant size. I went from a D to a DD breast size, and had more fullness around. Thankfully, I did not need a breast lift during my implant exchange. I also did not have a capsular contracture or any issues from my first implant surgery.
Recovering from my second breast implant surgery was much easier than the first time around. I guess my breasts were used to implants from my prior surgery. My incision was placed under my breast since I had silicone implants put in.
I've been very happy with my results. I feel more confident and have no complaints from my implant exchange surgery. My scar is already almost completely gone and you cannot see it unless I lift my breast. I had my first procedure done in May of 2018 and my second one in December of 2016.
