After much debate, I've decided to share this. I am NOT sharing it for praise, sympathy or sexual exchange. My ONLY intention is to show every woman with breast implants how beautiful our breasts CAN be post explant, because the #1 reason I was reluctant to remove mine was rooted in the unknown and worst case scenario
And the other lie I held in question:
Let me tell you this…I do not recognize my inner world now because I have been reborn. It's that extreme and that beautiful.
For 3 years I held off explanting, because I held onto these lies. And during those same 3 years I suffered unnecessarily with the symptoms you see posted here…a reality happening to millions of women around the world. I DO NOT want this to be you. So here goes…
Behold, my new body, here is what my surgery entailed:
Fat Transfer 100CC's to each breast
Lost 4% body fat (19% to 15%)
Lost 8 pounds (from 149 to 141)
Went from a DD to a Small C, 500CC breasts, weighing 1.2 pounds each GONE
Do you see that rash on my chest in the ‘before' picture? yeah, those don't happen anymore (as well as many, many other symptoms on my pre explant list…which I am finding the list is getting smaller as I progress along the Detox Phases we teach in our BII Healing & Recovery Program – Cleanse, Heal, Ignite.
UPDATE…4 more weeks in and I’ve lost ANOTHER 6 pounds. I am now at weeks post explant, and have lost 135 pounds. I am lighter than I was in high school.
So far, I am incredibly pleased with well…EVERYTHING. I recovered COMPLETELY in 2 weeks, and as of now am at my 4 week mark, riding horses, exercising, doing yoga and handstands. Being on the other side of this, is like getting out of a plastic prison I was trapped in for 10 years… and I attribute so much of it to the prep-work my partner and fellow Functional Diagnostic Nutrition & Nurse Practitioner Sarah Phillipe and I do to help women prepare their mind-body-soul-heart for such an invasive procedure.
It makes a HUGE difference. Most women who go through this surgery take months to recover and then symptoms resurface because they don't detox and heal damaged tissues and organs. AND reaaaaally work on the self love, self care, self acceptance, soul journey it takes you on, because that was also a big surprise in a good way!
What was the lesson you ask? That I have always been enough, beautiful, perfect, magical, complete as I was from the moment I was born. As were/are you
We are all sprouts from the seeds of life, chosen by our Creator, equipped with the lessons assigned to us, so we may express uniquely the consequences of beating ourselves up and choosing suffering over spirit.
With this journey of health hell, I accept, embrace and embody that I have been CHOSEN to walk through hell so I could walk out of the flames stronger, carrying buckets of water for those still consumed by the fire.
The moment I learned that this was a choice I made, to teach me what REAL self love looks and feels like, I scheduled my explant date…and I never looked back.
