My current implants are now banned in Australia!!

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies - not sure how active this particular thread is but thought I’d write a post. I got BA in 2012 in Brisbane and I went for textured ‘brazilian’ tear drop dual plane implants 315cc. My implants are now super lumpy and ripples and just feel so bad - and I have slight aching feelings when I sleep on my side. I’ve had an ultrasound and am getting a referral from my GP (will find out results of ultrasound on Tuesday). I’ve already booked in with a PS for a consultation in May - Dr Doyle at Gold Coast Plastic surgery. I just googled the brand of my current implants - silimed And was shocked to discover that they are now banned in australia!! *****! Definitely getting these things out. I am thinking of going to round implants this time - I love the natural look of tear drop but I have no upper pole fullness and would love to have some! Not sure if anyone is even reading this but would love to know your thoughts on going from tear drop to round? And also the benefits of going under the muscle v over? Thanks 😊

Which brand of implants do you have?

I’m thinking of doing the opposite. I’m thinking of swapping rounds for teardrops.

These implants where removed for reasons unrelated to ALCL. I believe it was many years ago now that they were removed from market here and it had to do with a possible contamination during the process of making them.

My experience is also like Jugs, I had rounds and wanted to change to anatomical.

I have the exact same implants and have had burning pain intermittently for a while now. I have a consult May 15 for explant and a lift. I don’t want the worry (and expense!) of going through this every five to ten years.

Hi guys - yeah I don’t think that my problems with my implants are related to the fact that they are now banned (atleast I hope not!) but they just feel so weird - my right implant feels like it’s completely rippled and has all these like weird soft lumps (that are the implant) - so I definitely need them out.

hmm interesting that the round girls are wanting the tear drop - now you’re making me think. I really just want some more fullness up the top but definitely not the bolt on look. I’ll see what that 3D image thing will look like  at the PS appointment and then make my decision.

@JenJen I completely understand you wanting to get an explant and not replace - I hope it goes well for you and you’re happy with the results. 

I also have another question for anyone with kids - have you told them about your implants? I have two girls and they don’t know - I really don’t want to tell them because I don’t want them questioning their own bodies but I also know it’s only a matter of time before they will figure it out...

Hi Jugs - they are the silimed brand - polyurethane textured implants. What don’t you like about your round ones? Do you feel they are not as natural looking?

I have 2 daughters - one is a preteen and the other is a teenager. They both know I have fake boobs which I have now had for nearly 5 years. Very occasionally will they bring it up. When the conversation arises, I tell them that as they get older they will have lots of decisions to make for themselves. I do let them know that fake boobs are a commitment as the implants do not last a lifetime so it is a decision to not make lightly. They also know I got the implants because I was flat prior to kids and flatter after breastfeeding 3 children. I have been open with my kids and answer any questions that continue to come up. But nor do I make a big deal out of having fake boobs, if you know what I mean. x

Hey hun, sorry  you are having problems - hope it all gets resolved well. I have teardrop anatomical implants and I have good projection and so does @I HaveBoobs 

I have told my daughter, but she is a young adult and I've always said to her that a woman's body is her own and if she wishes to make changes, to think carefully, weigh up all the pros and cons and then make a decision on what is best for her. When I told her she was not surprised as I had mentioned before I was unhappy with having no boobs and her response when I told her I was getting implants was "oh ok mum, your body your choice" It has not impacted her self esteem/awareness.  I raised her well :D

Thanks @sabP and @pink butterfly definitely sounds like you’ve raised your daughters right! Mine are only 8 and 10 - I just don’t want to have that conversation with them at this age when they are just starting to learn about their bodies. Sigh! We haven’t even had the Santa Claus talk yet!! 

Have a great day - I’ll hopefully find out my ultrasound results tomorrow and get my referral letter from my gp so I can get this process underway!
