@Regran@jenniferstano - Sorry for all the Explant and bubbie pics, but as most of you know, it’s almost been 2 weeks since I removed my 500cc silicone gel implants completely.
To recap for those who may not have read : I first got implants when I was 18 years old. I saved all my money and bought them myself my first year of college. In middle school, I was teased and quite frankly, tormented for being “flat as a board”. I still can recall the kids (mainly boys) who called me names and teased me about it. It effected me deeply and all I wanted when I turned 18 was to have boobs. That was 15 years ago.
Since then, I underwent 4 breast augmentations , 2 of which were reconstructive. My last set I had for 9 years and 6 years in is when I started noticing a negative change in my health both mental and physical.
After having my boys, I was planning to go smaller as I was measuring in at a 32D-DD and just didn’t feel the need to have them so big anymore. It fit that time period and a time in my life when bigger was better for everything. But then I discovered @breast_implant_illness through some girls on social media and after looking into it more, I instantly knew I needed to remove them. It just came to a point where it was jeopardizing my health and really started to worry me, not to mention suffering from headaches daily and migraines weekly. It was progressively getting worse as the months went on.
Skip forward 4 months and here I am, standing before the internet to see and judge my bare body, and for the first time I feel truly “naked” and vulnerable. But, at the same time I have never felt so beautiful, womanly and comfortable in my own skin as I do today.
Breast implants and explanting is equally a personal choice and I am certainly not here to judge you or your decisions to have, keep or expel of them. Sharing is caring and knowledge is power. What’s most important to me about sharing my story of #explanting is so if and when you begin to not feel 💯, you have something that you could look into. For all the people who suffer and doctors don’t have an answer, for all the misdiagnosing and for anyone who has implants to just be aware. Explant by @drlu
Switched my red lips for yoga pants and three days a week I switch my yoga pants for jeans to work in a photography lab. Part time working out of the home mom, part time work from home mom and full time mom.
I could wear my red lips to the lab buuut I don’t think the film would appreciate its glam and it needs to be appreciated.
Life is weird and beautiful. Thankfully there’s Jesus and coffee and oils. Also coffee out of a styrofoam cup is not recommended but right now that’s what we have at the lab. #movingprobs
