Don't miss the gals at all so far, but I havent started trying on clothes yet.
Mostly I'm just happy to be me again

Assuming that they put the implants under the muscle, do you have to retone the muscle? If they were in a pocket, what kind of/if any reconstruction was needed?
I don't have implants, but I have always told DH that down the road I may want to do a lift and enhance (nothing like Pam Anderson, but enough to give me back some shape)...so I wasn't sure if for some reason they would need to be removed what the consequences of that might be....as in, better to just leave them hanging
Separated, divorcing, moving on.
I edit because I always make typos.
My implants were partial unders, so both sides' pec muscles were cut to make the pockets.
While I'm currently on no-lift/no-reach orders for about a month, I do expect to get back the muscle tone I had originally. Things just need to heal up first.
Amazingly, even though my implants were HUGE (a major part of my discontent with them - I didn't want HUGE and that doctor didn't listen to me), my gals have already sprung back to their normal pre-surgery selves, and I've had these implants for 5.5 years now.
Even my explant plastic surgeon's impressed, esp since at 54, I'm not exactly a spring chicken. While I know some folks who had a lift along with their implant removal, a number of PSs, mine included, advocate waiting 6 mos to a year after removal to see what the body will do on its own. I have no interest in a lift, even if the body looks awful. But so far, I have to say, things are looking pretty darn amazing under the circumstances.
