Reposted from @jenniferstano - **Swipe left to see all my pictures** Well!!! Here it is. My not so “big” reveal of my new “old” self. Hahah. I couldn’t wait to use that phrase. I’m 1 week post op and feel really good and I’m loving my little itty bitties so far!!( recap- my implants were 9 years old and 500cc silicone under the muscle ) I’m sore but haven’t taken any narcotics for pain during this entire process and haven’t taken anything since I arrived home from Ohio. I still need to wear this compression / ace bandage to keep everything compressed so fluid doesn’t build up in the space where my implants once were. Im told this is the worst they will look, and once the bandages can come off, the tissue will “fluff” and not be so pressed or flattened. Once my implants came out - I instantly noticed how well I could breathe despite being tightly wrapped. Probably the deepest breathe I’ve taken in years. I had no idea it was even effecting my ability to breathe. I was also told, one of my implants had capsular contracture which is a hardening of the capsule surrounding the implant which you can see in one of the images once you swipe and a lot of scar tissue attached to my ribs 🤢 Since then, I haven’t had one single headache or migraine which I used to suffer from daily.. literally every single day of my life for years!!! I’m keeping track of the differences I see and feel and will update in post soon. I still can’t lift my arms up, or push or pull but I’m much more mobile now then I was. I needed to have muscle repair since my implants were placed under the muscle for 15 years. This healing process takes much longer than just removing the implants. Little by little I’m seeing and feeling the positive effects of not having implants in my body that were effecting my health. I’m grateful for my platform to be able to share this journey with you and appreciate the constant support and love from all of you. Eager to see my progress in the weeks to come. 💕 Again, my amazing dr is @drlujeanfeng and no I did not need a lift and I did not do fat transfer 💕

Reposted from @katvasconez - This post is for all the beautiful women out there who look in the mirror and criticize their bodies because it does not fit into a “perfect” hourglass figure - Big boobs, big ass, little waist. May my story shed light in those moments you beat yourself up and think you’d be much happier IF. IF you had bigger breasts clothes would look better on you. You can finally show off a low cut neckline in Vegas. How about you CHANGE your wardrobe and get fit. IF you had boobs you can finally wear that sexy lingerie from Victoria Secret and feel womanly doing it. How about you CHANGE the choice of lingerie to one that works for your body and the thoughts in your head. IF you had bigger boobs you can make your man desire you more. How about you CHANGE your man. We self criticize so hard that we lose ourselves in the process and resort to cosmetic surgery to make us “better.” Let me tell you something, it does make you better...but not for the aesthetic reasons. At the end of your journey you will face yourself in the mirror and look at your nice voluptuous breasts and realize you were beautiful without them. Over time the silicone or saline filled breasts will start to weigh you down because what may look “hot” no longer makes you feel good. You may have even lost nipple sensation like I did. One day you will have to come to terms with yourself and make a decision to remove them forever or replace them. FDA recommends replacement every 7-10 years. What they should recommend is to never get them in the first place!!!!! When you reach this moment choose YOU and not your breast size. Nobody else will choose your health for you. Choose to share a powerful message with young women who haven’t yet chosen to go under the knife. Spread body image positivity and work to improve your mental strength and what you tell yourself when you look in the mirror. You are your biggest critic, so love yourself. Your children will thank you. YouTube link of my story in my profile. Share this message with women in your life.

Self love isn’t the only ❤️ we need to talk about. Some of you know I cared for my grandfather for over 3 yrs w/ Alzheimer’s. He passed Dec 2017. These letters are some of my most precious keepsakes & they are the ❤️ letters between my grandfather & grandmother in the 60s. My grandparents had a volatile ❤️. They had known each other since elementary & became pregnant w/ my father before marriage. Living in their 🏠 I found my grandmother’s journals & realized the 💔 in her marriage contributed to her suicide. ❤️ is hard y’all. The 2 men I’ve ❤️ed most & showed me the most ❤️, hurt me most. How is that? I have a theory. We make life pacts w/ ones we come to 🌎 w/. We commit to teaching each other lessons & the hardest lessons we need are from ones we ❤️ most. ❤️ isn’t made easy for a reason. It is work but the best kind. It’s also the most 💔ing. You can ❤️ PEOPLE FROM AFAR. My therapist taught me that YEARS ago & it’s what gave me courage to leave men I have. I left them not b/c I stopped ❤️ing them but I grew up in abuse & I can not, will not have my children live that. I can’t raise WARRIORS letting them watch their parents abuse one another. I won’t do it. I 🙏🏼 for women & men (men are victims 2) that can’t leave & my grandmother couldn’t. She wouldn’t & what I wouldn’t give to save her.. I would give anything. ❤️ COULD KILL YOU, literally. IF YOU DON’T LEAVE BUT EXIST- that’s all you are doing. The exceptional part of you will die. So you leave WHEN YOU HAVE TO. It will be hard but you are worth saving. Your children & their children & their children NEED you to leave b/c otherwise they may never know healthy ❤️. ❤️ is what we need most but NO ❤️ is worth loosing ANY PART OF YOU. Never give up on exceptional ❤️ y’all. 🥰 #breastimplantillness #bii #mentalhealthawareness #explantjourney #healthblog #spiritualawareness #selflove #selflovequotes #selfcompassion #breastimplants #lovequotes #loveyourself #abusesurvivor #toxicrelationships #domesticviolence #suicide #suicideprevention #suicideawareness

Same top, old boobs, new attitude. 💁🏽‍♀️ I have to be honest.. sometimes when I try on old tops after removing my implants, I feel a little odd that things don’t look the same in the bras as they once did. But it’s growing on me! Nothing looks better than healthy and this photo right here is a true testament. To be honest, I would have to say my confidence is a lot higher now than it ever was. 🥰 Photo on the left was taken in October. Even with makeup caked on and eyelash extensions, I felt terrible. I remember wearing these high waisted jeans to hide my weight gain and the fluff all over. I didn’t feel very good on the inside, but I was good at hiding it most days. Fast forward to the right image, I don’t have makeup on, no lashes, or nail polish. To be honest, I haven’t really worried about that stuff since my surgery (not that there’s anything wrong with that, it just hasn’t been a priority again yet). Taking out my implants has given me a new outlook on life. It’s a rebirth in a way. I feel like a new person. I used to think I needed that stuff to look pretty. But I’m starting to realize that confidence and a positive attitude is the prettiest thing you can wear as a woman. A woman comfortable in her own skin is someone who I desire to be. Thank you again for all of the likes, comments, and messages. Your support means more to me than you know and it makes the journey even more enjoyable because I get to share it with y’all. You make the conscious choice to follow me each day and for that I’m grateful. Here’s to more workouts, more recipes, and even better content this year! ✨

7-weeks today I had my #explantsurgery. I didn’t have any “glaring” health issues, but I just knew I had a tug to get them out. I know myself well enough to know that when I have that feeling I need to follow through and listen. I’m so happy with my new body. I feel so much better since my #explant and I now can say I for sure had some #breastimplantillness symptoms. My extreme fatigue has lifted, my inflammation is down, I feel like my thyroid is working again, and I’m down 13 lbs and counting. I haven’t been active AT ALL. Yesterday I got the release from my surgeon that I can resume all activities. Yes! 💪🏻 This last 7-weeks has forced me to slow down and really pay even closer attention to what I am eating. I’ve picked up some awesome new habits and made some old ones even stronger. I drink #celeryjuice every morning, along with lemon water, and a host of Arbonne supplements like detox tea, probiotic, omega 3s, protein powder loaded with fiber and 🥬 greens and so much more. I’m nervous to get my body moving again, because I’m still sore. I’ve lost muscle, but also trimmed up on my body fat percentage. It’s a good trade. I’m going to bring you all along as I begin to workout again. One of my passions is to help people become fit in every area. I know my body and my life are on loan from the Lord and that I am a mere steward of it. I want to be excellent in every area. I’m ready to grind, in all areas, and will give you a front row seat in on the action. Pic is from 2009 when I was hitting cardio the most with a lot of light weights mixed in.

Tuned 36 today and I cannot think of a better way to celebrate than with good HEALTH!!! June 6th and today! . . . . #breastimplants #breastimplantillness #healingbreastimplantillness @breast_implant_illness #thehealisreal #plasticsurgery #toxic #jesussaves #happybirthdaytome

I LOVE MY BODY 😍 (Is what I keep telling myself). . This body has been through a LOT. Almost 6 years ago, I destroyed it by adding plastic, toxins, and chemicals ⚠️ to it. . For the last 4 years, it’s been fighting ITSELF ❌. So much inflammation, fatigue, and other symptoms. . A month ago, it underwent a HUGE surgery. It was cut open, scraped, washed out, and manipulated. Those plastic bags 🍈🍈 were taken OUT. It got put to sleep with anesthesia and woken back up. . Today, while it might look a little rough on the outside 👀 🙈...it’s fighting again. Fighting for its HEALTH. Fighting to remove the toxins. Fighting for NORMAL & REGULAR. Fighting to get back on track. Fighting waves 🌊 is detox. And fighting for ME to do my workouts. . Gosh I am SO GRATEFUL 🙏🏻 for what it’s been through and it’s resilience. For that, I DO LOVE it 💕. . . . . . #explantsurgery #explantrecovery #breastexplant #explantjourney #breastimplantremoval #breastimplantillness #breastimplantfailure #breastimplantillnessadvocate #breastimplantillnessawareness #bii #biiisreal #breastimplantillnessisreal #breastimplantillnesssurvivor #bodydetox #detoxjourney #bodyconfidence #loveyourbody #selflove #explanthealing #healing

These last few months have definitely been a roller coaster of emotions for our family. If you’re new to my Instagram, we have been sharing our Breast Implant Illness Journey on YouTube and some parts on here as well. Jerry’s pt 2 (and final part) to his Q&A is now live on #thelavignelife 🙏 Y’all asked some pretty intense questions, and he answered every single one honestly and extremely raw. We hope y’all find this video helpful in some way. Link to full video is in my Instagram stories. 💕 #bii #breastimplantillness #breastimplantremoval #implantremoval #boobjob #plasticsurgery #toxic #neveragain @breast_implant_illness @breast_implant_awareness @breastimplantillnessvoice

Part 3 BII(Breast Implant Illness) : Found this old picture, from my moments in between, trying to be someone I wasn’t. This is the essence of who I am. Happiest in my element. In nature, from once we came. 😊 Returning my body back to its original state is my end goal. Breast explant surgery will free me of the chains holding me back. I am so grateful to be in a place, in life, that I am proud of who I am now. I am grateful, period. Exploring who I am, and my passions the last few years has made me realize a lot. I am on a soul journey and my body is trying to align... To some I will always be the impression of who I once was, but today, I am soooooo much more! ❤️🙏 Cherish your body, it’s protecting the most important thing we have...our souls! Namaste, my friends! . . #boobs #breastimplantillness #breasts #savethetatas #plasticsurgery #lies #illness #health #fitness #fitnessmotivation #positivevibes #momsofinstagram #moms #women #womenempowerment #womensfashion #momswholift #fitnessgirl #fit #beware #surgery #vegan #vegetarian #awakening #healthylifestyle

Part 2 BII(Breast Implant Illness) : My boobs were everything to me. They were even a huge part of my identity to a large fan base. My boobs were honestly how I made money(they weren’t following me for my advice, tell ya that much 😂)They were my brand so to speak, they made me fun to look at. I said goodbye to this fake version of myself a few years ago. Including the BIG paychecks. Why?! Because it was faaaake! I went from making tons of money to struggling again. And it was worth it 100%, to claim back my spirit! The high maintenance image I had to create was not me! I like being makeup free, as natural as possible. So, being sick has only made my breast implants, the source of a lot of regret. I feel sad that at one point my body was how I equated my worth. Things in life aren’t always cut and dry, life doesn’t go the picture perfect way people expect. I made peace with it all, and now moving forward I can truly say I am 100% authentic to myself. Having large breasts for the worlds entertainment or to fit in, is not for me. I hate the attention I get, now. I am over being visually raped, and oogled at. My 22(1st surgery)year old self def wanted attention to validate herself, from “daddy issues”. I am not ashamed, I know what molded me. I have made a lot of my decisions in life because of past trauma or unhealthy thinking derived from abuse. No one wants to be objectified, even the women who put themselves front and center. Something is broken inside them, and something was broken in me! I healed a lot over the years. I had great little “tits” before. I thought I had to be more everything...sexier...the whole 9 yards! 😂 My 30 year old self would rather die then have another man stare/look at me (my boobs). I hate the attention they bring. I hate how sick I am. I HATE THEM. Moral of the story? You are fucking beautiful just how you are!❤️ . #boobs #breastimplantillness #breasts #savethetatas #plasticsurgery #lies #illness #health #fitness #fitnessmotivation #positivevibes #momsofinstagram #moms #women #womenempowerment #womensfashion #momswholift #fitnessgirl #fit #beware #surgery #vegan #vegetarian #awakening #healthylifestyle

⚠️ Love Boobs?! #boobs Ever heard of BII ?! (breast implant illness) Ladies! If you have FAKE BOOBS or want them...please stay tuned and listen up!! Your life and health depend on it! Breast implant illness is not a matter of IF it is a matter of WHEN. Don’t kid yourselves. Save yourself what we are going through medically. Women are dying...it is THAT SERIOUS! I am going to start sharing my journey ,to explant with you all. I am sick, and have been for years now with random illnesses, shingle 12x or more a year, gastro issues, depression, reproductive complications, various surgeries, swollen nodes, daily vomiting for years, drainage, pain, itching, hospitalizations and more. Breast implants are immunity agitators and cause our bodies to crash as they slow release their poisons(ruptured or not. And no there aren’t safe options) Our bodies reject them eventually NO MATTER WHAT! Stop lying to yourselves because you want to look good...Look where that got me. I regret my decision 100% and wish I had loved my body the way it was. Ladies you are beautiful without the death sentence of fake tits. I wanna repeat, that, NO SAFE IMPLANTS EXIST! YOUR SURGEONS WILL LIE AND DISCREDIT WOMEN LIKE US TO MAKE MORE MONEY...from healthy women like you! The FDA NEVER approved them as safe, only gave them more time on the market to see the long term effects. And they 100% have been proven to be immunity system irritators. The # of women suffering is mind blowing, as we fight the medical community to recognize the immune illnesses brought on by implants. I just can’t believe the amount of lying that goes on in the medical community for profits sake. My story is not unique, in fact it’s pretty identical to thousands more! I am so happy for the women who have already took the brave leap. I am sincerely saddened to lose my beautiful boobies when the time comes but they are killing me! . #boobs #breastimplantillness #breasts #savethetatas #plasticsurgery #lies #illness #health #fitness #fitnessmotivation #positivevibes #momsofinstagram #moms #women #womenempowerment #womensfashion #momswholift #fitnessgirl #fit #beware #surgery #vegan #vegetarian #awakening #healthylifestyle

Goal for today; Give Love 🥰 insight below... Thinking about doing a video with my morning routine of supps, elixirs, teas, oils and herbs! On a mission of healing and I’m willing to do whatever it takes. I might do a second one on the physical things I do in the morning too. Slightly time consuming, but I’m finally putting myself first in a whole new way, I just have to get up a little earlier 😅. Which works out considering I usually wake up pretty early. Today was 4:41am! Which is later than usual 🥰. Happy Friday! I can’t believe it’s already the end of the week. I must say that I’m feeling better and better everyday...if you couldn’t tell 😁💜. Give Love today! This has been my mission lately. I’ve had a tough couple of days in my personal life and while it’s not easy, it feels different than ever before. I can feel the impact that negative energy has on my body and I while I do not enjoy it, I honor it and the other people who are experiencing hurt. I send love and set boundaries but I do not get pulled in. I sit in silence or listen to one of my favorite videos for healing anger and anxiety from the amazing Soulvana app. I feel peace come over me and I become aware that other people’s hurt is not my responsibility. People pleasing is my weakness, but I will no longer let it be who I am. We must all be responsible for our own energy and anger is a way we can look at ourselves and figure out what is causing the pain. It’s easy to point the finger at the other person and blame them for our hurt or disappointment they are causing us. In reality, I’ve learned that that is how we give our power away to them, by letting them create our reality. We are creators, it is time to create the live we deserve, which is abundance and love. Send love to everyone you come to today, if someone cuts you off, send them love and proceed with your day by creating life not death. Death and life are in the power of the tongue, what will you give to the world today. I love you 💜 #love #vitamins #supplements #oils #health #breastimplantillness #heal #personaltrainer #wellness

Wearing your @medicalmedium Heavy metal detox smoothie like 💁🏻‍♀️ #detoxing the metals and toxins I passed on to these two. I birthed and fed them both while I had silicon implants. To think about the amount of toxins they inherited breaks my heart. I had to stop breastfeeding Mimi early because the implants where starting to kill me. But lucky I never gave up on the truth about breast implant illness and found ways to fight for my life and detox my girls bodies safely and effectively through #medicalmedium. So when I get asked why I feed my kids the way I do.. this is why. I had a hell of a lot of mothers guilt in the past around this knowing they had been exposed to these chemicals. I may be the pain in the butt Mum that doesn’t let my kids eat things and get a lot of eye rolls from others for the way I raise these two, but health is power. And If I can give my kids the gift of health I know iv done my job right. The truth about breast implant illness has finally come out big time...Yeah Yeah there is power in the voices of all the women who have suffered You can learn more about it on @medicalmedium. I am 1.5 yrs post explant and have my life back 🙏🏼 It’s been life changing... my whole life turned around the moment I decided to heal myself, fight for what I wanted and live in my truth. I had to hit the bottom to start climbing my way back up to the top. So even though they took me to the lowest point in my life I am grateful for everything that has happened because now I am better and stronger for it 🙏🏼 #breastimplantillness #breastimplantremoval #medicalmedium #toxins #heavymetal #heavymetaldetoxsmoothie #youcanhealyourself #energymedicine #kinesiology #autoimmunedisease #crohnsdisease #liverdetox #love

Breast Implant Illness Warrior Before implants riddled with symptoms and inflammation (that good old swelling that makes us look puffy). After explant, the inflammation is gone and her life is back.

#repost @hperlove with @get_repost ・・・ I want to shed light on my experience with breast implants. I know not everyone will relate, but I’m sharing with the intention of creating space for others to learn & heal. 2003: As a teen I had unevenly sized breasts & I wanted to change that. I found a plastic surgeon who recommended I get an implant in the smaller (rather than what I wanted: reduce the larger). My understanding of my options was limited, & I felt pressured to follow his lead. After surgery, & for over a decade, I experienced many health issues including chronic sore throats, sinus infections, fatigue, brain fog, pain, numbing, nausea, anxiety, disconnection to my body, sensitive skin & intolerances to foods & the environment. 2015: I didn’t know my implant was a trigger for my health issues, but I felt ready to have it removed. I wish I could say this brought peace to what was a traumatic journey for me, but my 2nd surgery came with real challenges too. While under the knife my surgeon made decisions regarding the shape and size of my breasts that we hadn’t agreed on. The results of both surgeries left me feeling an enormous amount of mistrust, in myself and in others. I have since learned with research that my body viewed my implant as toxic, resulting in my health issues. My symptoms, amongst others, are now acknowledged by patients & some medical professionals as Breast Implant Illness (BII - not recognized by the FDA). I have also learned that it’s not uncommon to feel unheard & without enough information after surgery. Today: I’m so much healthier after having my implant removed. I’m grateful to those who shared their stories & listened to mine, & those who helped me heal through acupuncture, reiki, lymphatic drainage & yoga. My door/heart is open to anyone who has concerns about implants, or has explanted, or who can relate. Reach out if you want to talk more, or if you live in LA & are interested in a reiki session with me to address your healing needs. We’re all in this together. #breastimplants #breastimplantillness #breastexplant #explant #plasticsurgery #bii #biiawareness #health #wellness #reiki #yoga #selflove #trust @breath_implant_i

Here’s to the weekend 🥂🍾 Patient details: Round high profile mentor implants. 350cc

Been over 4 months since I had my explant surgery with @drlujeanfeng ! Still getting used to my "new" body - it's strange to not fit in/fill out blouses/dresses (or bras for that matter) that I did for the past 15 years. But honestly- I really don't care that I feel like I'm smaller chested than prior to getting implants 15 years ago. The silver lining BESIDES getting my HEALTH back is I'm down a solid 16 pounds since I had the toxic (and ruptured) bags removed. I wish I would have gotten them removed sooner. But we all have a journey. I'm just sharing mine in the event it can help someone come across this life-changing information sooner! . . . . #explant #explantsurgery #explantjourney #toxic #toxictatas #bii #breastimplantillness #breastimplantremoval #breastfeeding #breastimplants #plasticsurgery #infertility #infertilitysucks #infertilityawareness #1in8 #ivf #ivfjourney #ivfsuccess #health #healthyliving

I saw this today and realized how far I’ve come. I used to be that person who binged on my cravings all the time. Would make jokes similar to this about it... . But after going through breast implant illness and truly believing I was going to die... I realized how important health and wellness is. I realized all those years of putting crap into my body wasn’t funny. . I am now that person, who reaches for fruit, veggies, or nuts when I need a snack.. instead of chips, cookies, or pastries. I make my own healthy dinner, when everyone else in my house ordered a pizza. I only drink water and feel guilty if I even take a sip of soda cause it’s pure poison. It’s been an adjustment but I’m proud of how far I’ve come from my binge eating days. Plus I feel so much better not putting garbage in my body!

Breast Implants are not so sexy when you see the true reality of them. Toxic bags of saline or silicone. If you are thinking about getting breast implants you might want to have lots of extra $$$$ money sitting in the bank for backup because the bank draining does not stop when you pay for your first set. Not only do they rob you of your health but they will drain your bank account as you will see in the next photo. I have made a list of how much I have spent just on breast implants over 20 years and explant due to complications and sickness that I did not think would happen when I got my first set. I have had 3 sets over the last 20 years. This list does not include the THOUSANDS I have spent spinning in circles & chasing my health and not realizing the cause of my sickness was something I paid for and was sitting within my own body. They look so harmless sitting in my old bra but they are far from it. Do not be fooled like I was by the plastic surgeons that say they are fine and won’t harm you. It’s a big lie! Implants are ticking time bombs that steal your health and money. I am living proof of what they can do to your health & checking account. Save your money & don’t put your health at risk. You are beautiful & sexy the way you are. #breastimplantillness #bii #wasteofmoney #sickness #toxic #health #fitness #fitgirl #breastimplants #bodybuilding #money #fitchick #loveyourself #healing

This photo is from a few years back - Did you read my post about BIOTOXIN AND BREAST IMPLANT ILLNESS? Unfortunately we have discovered we have elevated mold in our rental home currently. It explains why I have had a higher frequency of flares, why the last month I have been unwell, and why other family members are symptomatic as well. Got my supplements lined up with an action plan.

Próteses de poliuretano são próteses de silicone revestidas por uma camada de “espuma” de poliuretano. Isso confere uma alta adesão aos tecidos da paciente, causando uma maior resposta inflamatória. Elas têm sido muito usadas pelo menor risco de contratura capsular, se comparadas com as próteses texturizadas. Contudo, estudos mostram que essa diferença diminui com o passar do tempo. Mesmo sendo muito utilizadas, as próteses de poliuretano geram discussões e contradições. Em 1980, o FDA proibiu o uso de próteses de poliuretano. Essa decisão foi tomada devido a publicação do “National Cancer Institute”, sugerindo que a degradação da espuma de poliuretano em TDA (substância cancerígena em altas temperaturas) gerava risco elevado de câncer em ratas (de laboratório). No entanto, esse risco não foi comprovado cientificamente em humanos. Na década de 90, surgiram os questionamentos relacionados à toxicidade dos produtos de degradação do poliuretano. Esse fato resultou na retirada dos implantes de poliuretano do mercado nos EUA. Em 2015, uma empresa brasileira de próteses de poliuretano foi interditada, pois foram encontradas partículas na superfície das próteses, como material têxtil e vidro. Por haver suspeitas de que as partículas poderiam prejudicar a saúde das pacientes, a venda e o uso de todos os implantes da marca foram proibidos, inclusive em países como os da União Europeia, Austrália e Nova Zelândia. A maioria dos estudos reconhece que problemas com o uso de poliuretano ainda não foram eficientemente discutidos. Entre eles, a possibilidade de degradação deste material. Em muitos casos, o revestimento de poliuretano começa a desaparecer cerca de dois anos após a cirurgia. Isso aumenta o risco de contratura capsular, devido à perda desta camada. Além disso, bactérias podem se fixar na superfície do poliuretano, aumentando os riscos de infecção e tornando o material altamente alergênico, com casos de rash cutâneo (erupções na pele). Por fim, a alta aderência das próteses nos tecidos dificulta bastante a retirada da prótese, seja numa cirurgia de troca ou de explante. Próteses de poliuretano são realmente melhores e mais modernas?

Got my winter skin on, in desperate need of some Vitamin D ☀️ BUT anyway let’s talk about why I’m really on here posting a selfie. Guys, seriously I am so excited about the changes I continue to see since my explant so had to share. The inflammation in my face is going down and I am starting to look like my old self again 😭😭 Swipe left to see my face 6 months ago. Yeah, that was my body telling me something was seriously wrong and I knew it - always listen to your gut and never stop fighting. 2019 will be the year of complete healing 🙏🏼 I can feel it and I am putting that out into the universe right now.

Breast Implant Illness and ALCL patients deserve respect, empathy and support. #realpatients #bii #breastimplantillness #trustedsurgeons #healingbreastimplantillness

It would seem that even in a busy city with thousands of people, we find ourselves standing alone....... Its interesting, Many people agree with us the pictures, the story’s and the horrific botched cases speak for themselves. What has unfolded in Australia within the last 6 years in Cosmetic Surgery, specifically Breast Augmentation is a complete disaster. A somewhat small loophole has left thousands of women traumatized and hurt, Physically and psychologically. This loophole I speak of is the Australian Government allowing unqualified, untrained and unregulated doctors to perform cosmetic surgery without any recourse. The patients left behind are growing in numbers. The surgeons responsible are growing their businesses and bank accounts. The solicitors are jumping in with fees so high the patients are left with very little. The implant companies are running for cover. Patients with #breastimplantillness Will continue to grow as a result of the type of implants used and techniques. Hundreds of women don’t want to go down the legal path, they want to move on with their lives. They want access to explant surgery and/revision surgery. They are in debt, they are financially drained and they are exhausted. Yet no one is willing to put their hand in their pocket and help them. There needs to be either a public health system pathway OR a foundation, in which patients can chose their qualified surgeon in their location - with no Backdoor incentives or referrals. This is where all the naysayers go quite........ It would seem everyone wants to “stop the cowboys” but no one wants to help the victims without their fee. I appreciate many surgeons do revision and see this all the time and their hearts break, I refer revision patients to these top revision surgeons (with no incentive). I have never taken money for a referral. They do an incredible job, they restore hope and women are left like new people. I do not believe surgeons should do dozens of pro bono cases. Absolutely not. But if everyone worked together and there was a simple, transparent access program thru the government or a foundation, patients could get the help they so desperately need. 💕 #trustedsurgeons

25 weeks till stage time. I can’t begin to say how excited I am about the chance to hop on stage again. So blessed and grateful to be under the guidance of @allysangels_fitness and @swiftmovementacademy.

I will add more pics later, but just wanted to show you all what a lying shit bag my original surgeon was! These are meant to be 480 at the most. Yesterday one weighed 550 and the other like 540 and they’ve evaporated over the 11 years I’ve had them 😡 I don’t understand how they can do that legally?! I told my original PS I didn’t want over 450 and that was a little on the big side for me. And for all those that talk smack on Mexican doctors you’re out your damn mind! This doc has been wonderful he’s given me my implants back, took pictures of the implants and capsules, and even gave me the capsules themselves 😳 that was way more than I asked for. So for $5500 dollars I got surgery by an excellent surgeon, one nights care in a super clean and attentive hospital, and two days at an after care house with a full time nurse with me. I’m not going to say that I love my new real boobs just yet, but not because this doctor didn’t do an excellent job! It’s because it would’ve been better if the original doctor did his damn job and only filled to what I asked for. 😡please if you have or are thinking of getting #implants #saline or #silicone don’t or get rid of them! Wish I’d have known about #bii #breastimplantillness years ago. #spreadawareness #siliconemakesyousick #saynotoimplants #thehealisreal

If only I could tell the girl in the first photo all I’ve learned in the last 3 photos & more 💔 the plastic surgeons who implanted these Allergan Natrelle 410 textured implants should be contacting their patients to inform them, but that’s not the case!

I saw this and realized, I used to be that person who binged on my cravings. Never giving it a second thought... laughing about it...but after going through believing I was truly dying, and learning how important it is to take care of your health and body, I’m now the person who snacks on fruits, veggies, and nuts. GROWTH! 🙌🏻 #health #healing #breastimplantillness #growth

___ honest question ___ Are you living up to your potential? By this I mean, are you doing things daily that are in complete alignment with your goals and the way you want to live? Are your habits and actions matching up to your goals? Or are you doing things in a way that is keeping you stuck - or worse, moving you backwards? . This year... don’t settle for second best. Throw away plan B. Don’t participate in low vibe chatter and gossip. Uplevel everything - your thoughts, your habits, the way you eat, your boundaries, your circle, what you do in your spare time, your self-care routine... EVERYTHING. Deal? Unleash your power, ladies! ❤️,

Just FIVE DAYS until my beeeautiful momma comes to Oahu for her #explantsurgery getting rid of those fake boobies that have been making her sick for years. This is something i hadnt heard of before and most women considering the surgery havent heard of either! Quick summary: My momma got her implants in 2007, the following year she began getting consistent sinus issues, migraines, fatigue, and also picked up some food sensitivities. A natropathic doctor she met with years ago suggested it might be her implants making her sick but it wasnt until this past year when they become hard and uncomfortable that she was willing to accept that possibility. For the past few weeks she has been watching her diet in preparation for the surgery and she will be staying with me in her recovery. We have both been doing our research on ways to rid her body of the toxins and heavy metals. My mom is not vegan but, with my help, will follow a plant based diet in her recovery! I will be updating on this page for anyone interested 🥰 #vegan #veganlifestyle #veggielover #plantbased #lowwaste #veganfoodshare #letscookvegan #vegansofig #health #healthyliving #explant #explantjourney #breastimplantillness

It’s cold, so I’m looking back to that time we were in the middle of a heat wave in Maine, splashing around in a river ☀️💧

#nofilter with #breastimplantillness my vision had gotten so blurry and bad in just the 4 1/2 years I had them. Slowly the inflammation is going down my color is getting darker even my skin tone finally isn't so pale either. It's been 24 hrs so far and my energy levels have went up in ways I haven't felt in years. I'm very happy with how my surgery went #bii is seriously the worst thing I've ever went through but I'm happy to be #sizehappy my blood and body have been through so much I'm so thankful #thehealisreal #breastimplantawareness #explantsurgery

💯💯💯 implant Illness is real and we need to spread awareness! #breastimplantillness# #survivor# #awarenessisspreading# #beavoice# #cancer# #toxic# #healthovervanity#

20-plus years later and I would still choose you. Through the entire #explantsurgery you’ve made me feel beautiful. I’ve never worried if you would look at me the same. You see me for me, and I’m so grateful. So much of what I do and how I do it is because you strengthen me with your words and affirmations. You expect the best out of me and expect the best for me. This will be our best year yet.

Seeing is believing ! __ Let’s talk weight. The left is DAY OF EXPLANT, the right is 45 DAYS POST EXPLANT. This is me not having worked out nor dieted nor done any detoxes. It’s just me living & inflammation falling off. The first year I got my implants I went up 10 lbs & for years it was those 10 lbs I couldn’t get off. After 5 years of having implants at 25 my hormones were really messed up, I gained 30 lbs. TWICE. And at 26 & at 28 I had to loose those 30 lbs TWICE. When I lost it, it didn’t just fall off. In fact I got reckless & did unhealthy things to loose it. Last year I was in the best shape since my implants & the second I quit 2 hr gym days, juicing & counting calories- I gained back 20 lbs. We constantly feel punished for our weight as women. The environment, our foods full of chemicals (even the healthy ones), too many diet or fitness options, “IG models” posting their airbrushed bodies to make us think perfection exists & yet here we are struggling through a day. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves that THE HEAL IS REAL post explanting foreign toxic objects out of the body. I lost 7 lbs in the first 11 days & I haven’t weighed since. I had eating disorders in my youth that still put fears in my 29 yro mind. What I want to tell you most.. YOU ARE NOT A FAILURE FOR YOUR HEALTH FAILING YOU. You are not messing life up or doing it all wrong. It’s simply that we need to find the root of your health battle & concentrate there. One of mine was my mental health which started prior to implants after I was diagnosed with terminal cancer & my depression was fueled after I got implants. The other part was toxicity from my implants that depleted my hormones & thyroid. Post explant I’ve let my body do it’s detox job & man is it! Don’t give up ladies, your heal will come.

Swipe to see other photos. Meal Prep for the day. Showing your body love and feeding it food with nutritional value is key to being the healthiest version of you. Food heals or kills. Today’s protein & veggie bowls consist of fresh fish from Alaska, yellow squash, zucchini, riced cauliflower, sweet potato, fresh garlic and cilantro. Snack is apples, sunflower butter and collagen. So many pretty colors and everything is loaded with nutrition. I have been enjoying looking up the nutritional value of food and what it does within our bodies. Taking care of our body requires discipline and dedication. It is all paying off with my blood reports which I will share soon. My morning meal prep takes me about 50 minutes to wash, cut, prep, cook and clean. That 50 minutes that I dedicate is saving and healing my life and my husbands. Cheers to good health & nutrition. #foodheals #fitness #bodybuilding #fitchick #nutrition #change #healthyfood #healing #health #protein #breastimplantillness #bii #sobriety #autoimmunedisease #takinghealthyback #veggies #loveyourself #foodheals #god #blessings

I made this cute little chart to hang on my fridge leading up to my surgery because I want to remember all the amazing foods to put on my grocery list each week to help my skin shrink back into place as quickly as possible after I have my implants removed!🤞 And since it turned out so cute I HAD to share it! These are just great foods in general and you should all eat them anyway for their countless benefits, but they're especially helpful if you have excess skin for any reason (like after explanting, losing weight, giving birth, etc.) or even if you're just concerned about signs of aging showing up on your skin. My focus after explant is to use foods as medicine to give my body what it needs, so no crazy detox protocol for me. I will simply be eating healthy whole foods and gently easing back into regular exercise and activity to allow my body to heal and detox naturally. ✌️❤️💪 #foodasmedicine #boostcollagen #improveskin #fightaging #eatwholefoods #weightlossproblems #excessskin #explantsurgery #explant #breastexplant #breastimplantexplant #breastimplantillnessawareness #breastimplantillness #bii #biiawareness #biirecovery #breastimplantremoval #biidetox #breastimplantfailure #breastimplantadvice #naturaldetox #detoxnaturally #skinelasticity #betterskin #saggyskin #saggyskinbegone #postbabypooch #mombelly #postpartumbody

My first batch of Jun is done, started my second batch. On to second fermentation. I should have thought of the flavors before hand. These are flavored with jasmine tea, ginger and strawberry extract. It’s all I had. If you notice in this picture I have my brew on a seedling heating mat. In #nyc it is fairly cold.

From Nicole Daruda's FB group Breast Implant Illness and Healing by Nicole . A message from Dr Diana Zuckerman The National Center for Health Research is concerned that TRICARE (insurance through the US military) often excludes coverage for women who need to have their implants removed for medical reasons. Please contact Caroline at info@center4research.org if you have or had TRICARE and have either been denied coverage for explant or received coverage for explanting through them. Also, we'd be interested to know if any of you had breast augmentation covered by the US military or VA. Thanks!

Perfect enbloc Reposted from @jchunmd1 - En-bloc total capsulectomy and removal of ruptured silicone implants.1/15/2019. There is a Facebook live video at H Jae CHUN MD page that clarifies the difference between en-bloc total capsulectomy vs total capsulectomy. #breastimplantillness #breastimplants #health #breastimplantfailure #breastsurgery #plasticsurgeon #cosmeticsurgery #breastaugmentation #mommymakeover #fitfam #fitness #plasticsurgery #selflove #idealimplants #idealbreastimplants #leakygut #cancer #famous #breastcancer #modeling #instagood #amazing #graceproject #pretty #fitgirls #fitgirlsguide #beautiful #fitspo #fitbodies #model

I got breast implants in 2011 shortly after I won my very first bikini competition. I got them so I would be more proportionate - I had lost a lot of weight and didn’t have much breast tissue to begin with. So in other words, I got them to be more attractive, be validated more by feeling more symmetrical for an aesthetic based sport, and to ultimately be liked more and gain attention. This is the absolute honest, real truth. In 2014, I was diagnosed with Hashimotos disease, a mthfr variation, SIBO, systemic candida, I had brain fog so bad I felt poisoned almost daily, massive food intolerances, leaky gut, looking 6 mos pregnant by 4pm every day, panic attacks, waking at night with heart palpitations, and honestly too many other things to list in this space. I set out on a holistic healing journey, eating even healthier than I already was, extreme detoxing over an 18 month period, had amalgams out, NiR red light saunas daily, massive efforts to manage stress, sleep, and breath work, etc. You know what? I got mostly better. No meds. Still had lingering brain fog and heart palpitations, but healed my gut fully and dramatically changed my life. In 2018, I tore the capsule around my implant and it hurt so bad. I decided to have an #explant surgery and stumbled upon #breastimplantillness and was horrified at what I was seeing. Thousands of women with the exact same “mystery” symptoms I was dealing with and literally fighting off every day with one of the cleanest eating and detox regimens of anyone I know. “Hmm...” I thought. Six months after my #explantsurgery I have zero symptoms. ZERO. I honestly “feel” different. They gave me my #implants as a souvenir, so here I am WITH THEM on the left, without on the right. Maybe they made me sick, maybe they didn’t. I firmly feel regardless of the cause, if you have mystery illness symptoms rather than sit back and blame something, step up and educate yourself on #holistichealing - I reversed a ton of issues being my own advocate BEFORE I ever considered #bii - you can’t deny my progress post surgery though, people have even commented on my skin on being less sallow now. Implants, for me, were a huge mistake ⬇️

Another 1260+ adverse event reports were made to the FDA in December 2018 for breast implants. December 2017, in comparison, showed approximately 800. It was about that time when the manufacturers were beginning to shift from summary reporting to individual reporting. Summary reporting offers false data to the public and to clinicians who might want to research the device they are implanting. It’s deception. Many believe the numbers were low (for years) because the problems went away. We believe the problems were there all along and the data was just hidden. Doctors and patients should be angry about the practice of summary reporting. #breastimplantillness #biaalcl #weneedtherealdata Report your problems to the FDA at: https://www.fda.gov/safety/medwatch/. #wakeupfda #medicaldevicesafety #fda #patientnetwork #safepatientproject #implantillness #explantsurgery #breastimplantremoval #breastimplantawareness #breastexplantation #explantjourney #breastimplants #breastaugmentation #implantfacts #salineimplants #siliconeimplants #boobjob #explantinfo #breastimplantillness #gummybearimplants #theuglysideofbreastimplants #fakeboobs #fakebreasts #plasticsurgery #beauty #fitness #boobs #breastimplantvictimadvocacy #biaalcl
