I just found out today after routine mammography that I have a leaking implant. Already have a consult scheduled with a surgeon to have explantation. My implants are 30 years old. I am not planning on reconstruction at this point and will have next to no breast tissue. Psychologically similar to a mastectomy?!?! Just no fear of cancer to go with. Any advice out there for questions for the surgeon?

Hi, and welcome!

Sorry to hear your implants have ruptured, 30 years is quite old for an implant, so you are wise to remove them at this point.

Courage is not lack of fear; it is moving ahead despite having it.

hello SoonToBeEx,

Welcome to this forum. I too had 31 year old silicone implants and was explanted 6 weeks ago without a lift. I am pleasantly surprised and feel soooo relieved. You are doing a great thing. Don't be afraid, I know a lady who just had her 41 year old implants removed
