My breast implants are MEME Polyurethane Implants 1984, 250cc: . It is recommended that they be removed, because of age of the implants and capsule formation/fibrosis, grade IV. I was determined just to have them removed and have a mastopexy done after several months of healing. My surgeon seems to be in favor of replacing the old implants with new smaller Mentor silicone implants. He thinks that I will not be happy with a mastopexy. What is your experience with redo augmentation using Mentor silicone implants? What do women look like after implants are taken out and how are the usual results for mastopexies post explantation? I feel like my board certified, highly competent surgeon is steering me away from a mastopexy. I have had fibromyalgic syndrome for years. The symptoms started about 6 years after receiving the implants. The contradiction on the issue is confusing and I am really not sure what to do. Dorothee B.-Viertel
