Experience Removing Implants & Going Flat

I had dbl mx w dti on Christmas Eve 2022 after a synchronous bilateral recurrence/new tumour of heterogenous IDC. My implants are bigger than I wanted (200cc of tissue removed, 300cc implanted) and just super uncomfortable, tops dont fit anymore, its harder to donthe sports i like, and they look matronly. I just want them out. My recoveries from previous surgeries (3 lumpectomies prior the dbl mx) were painful recoveries w complications (necrosis, nipple loss, seromas).

How was your recovery after explant? Aesthetically what did it look like?

I'm 49yo & generally fit.
