I underwent explant surgery with Dr Senerviratne and Dr Tansley yesterday.
I had my breast implants for 13 years.
My health had been deteriorating and I couldn’t understand why.
Then I stumbled across BII, Breast Implant Illness.
Though BII is not medically recognised at present, the symptoms of BII were those that I was experiencing.
It was like a ‘light bulb’ moment for me and I started researching Plastic Surgeons who would remove my implants En Bloc.
I booked 3 consults to ensure I chose the right surgeon for me.
At my initial consult Dr Seneviratne and Dr Tansley were compassionate, sincere and honest about my concerns and what I could expect post operatively.
They answered all of my questions before I even asked them!
They instilled complete confidence in me, in their ability.
I had capsular contracture and even though an ultrasound did not pick up any other concerns pre op, my right implant was ruptured.
I have only been taking panadol since surgery yesterday.
I feel great!
I had had significant back pain since Xmas 2017, making it difficult to even roll over in bed and get out of bed and the back pain has completely gone.
Making such a big decision, to have my implants removed was not easy, but I knew they had to come out.
As a nurse and a patient, I can honestly say that Sugitha and Patrick have enabled me to take this big step in regaining my health and I have no hesitation in recommending them.
