This is a difficult post for me to write as I say good bye to my chin implant and breast implants.
I had my chin implant done in South Korea 5 years ago.
I had chosen gore tex implants for my chin then.

I had my breast implants done in Singapore 6/7 years ago by a very famous local plastic surgeon.

Let's start with the story about my breast implants.
Last year in October 2015, I felt that there were lumps in my breast. I got worried and went for a check-up with my gynaecologist in Europe. Upon examination, she said she did not think it was anything serious, but referred me to a radiologist to get an ultrasound done just to be on the safe side. Both the radiologist and my gynaecologist knew that I have breast implants.
In this post, I have shared my experience in mitigating the long term effects of cosmetic surgeries, which for my case was an issue to be dealt with over time. I hope that this will serve as a point of reference for those contemplating surgeries, and as a timely reminder for those who have already undergone the surgeries to take care of yourself and go for regular check-ups to ensure that everything is in order.
I am glad that I chose my current plastic surgeon. He is very experienced and is based in Singapore. He has done a fantastic surgery for me. Throughout this explant journey, he has been very helpful and patient. He took time to explain the surgeries to me and made me feel at ease.
Disclaimer: Ultimately, the decision to go for surgeries is the sole decision of each individual. There is no right or wrong on the issue of the interpretation of our individual identity and what we stand for. I fully respect the decision of each individual to do the necessary in order for them to feel confident and comfortable in their skins. For me personally, looking back, I probably would have told my younger self to give more consideration to the long term health implications of the surgeries before undergoing them.
