Breast lift and reduction

Common Questions and Answers about Breast lift and reduction


Avatar f tn if I do a breast reduction does that automatically mean that my breast would be lifted. Also what would be the cost to do so and are there any side effects of do a breast reduction surgery? I used to be a b cup and after giving birth to my son I ended up being a triple d cup size.
Avatar n tn My health insurance ghi does not cover breast lift or reduction. I am currently a size 42dd and my breast are sagging. I cannot afford the procedure or do not know exactly what I need if its a breast lift or reduction. I suffer from shoulder pains almost everyday am my doctor only prescribe me motrin for the pain. I really need help and cannot afford it. Is there a list or some doctors that can help me for free in nyc?
Avatar f tn Before I has my two children, I had c cup breasts. I breast fed for a year and now my breasts are back to a c cup but with d cup skin. My areolas are huge! My husband has admitted that they "aren't as nice as they used to be." I'm interested in a breast lift and areola reduction, and wanted to hear some of your experiences. How bad is the scarring and healing process? How much does this typically cost?
Avatar f tn With a reduction, both breast tissue and fat is removed along reshaping the breasts and elevation of nipple position. The decision as to which procedure to select depends on whether there is a need for volume reduction.
Avatar f tn Hi! I had a breast lift done about 8 years ago and i'm currently 22 weeks pregnant with my 3rd child. I know a lift and reduction are different but I did ask my OBGYN and was told being able to breast feed would depend on if the doctor severed or removed any ducts. You'll find out when the time comes so don't waste your emotions worrying about it right now. Plan to breast feed if that's what you want and just be emotionally prepared for the alternative. It will all be fine - for both of us!!!
Avatar n tn on the question about breast reduction. I personally loved it! I have been bothered, harrassed and felt akward all my life becasue of the size of my breasts ( those of you who are top heavy can probably relate) and the surgery got me down to a "normal" size, so I can wear tank tops, sleeveless dresses and the cute tops other women wear and not feel like I am falling out all over if you know what I mean.
Avatar f tn In the meantime, I have alot of spillage on the sides of my breasts, and wonder if a little lipo suction and lift would reduce them somewhat symetrically and still keep them looking good, without scaring or nominal scaring, and usable in the future for my babies? After having children, could I get the breast reduction, even if I got the lift and lipo on the sides now? Please help! I don't mind being a D, but a DDD is too much.
Avatar n tn I cannot excercise because of them and I suffer from rashes and breakout underneath and in between them. I am in desperate need of a breast reduction but cannot afford it and my insurance will not cover the cost. I also suffer emotionally because of them and would like some help. Are their any surgeons who do pro bono reductions or the surgery at a reduced cost?
Avatar n tn I am unhappy with the look of my breasts after a reduction & lift. I was a 38DD and now I'm a 38C/D. He removed roughly 400cc from each breast. I am 2 months postop and my breasts have had the same size, shape, etc. for several weeks now. I want to fix the flat, boxy look, but my PS isn't being very helpful or taking responsibility. He was highly rated and recommended by physicians and prior patients, so I'm quite disappointed.
Avatar f tn I also had breast reduction in January 2014 , I was a 34 G and 4'11" weighing 112. I ask for 34dd+. since I didn't want such a big change more of a lift with slight reduction, when I woke from the surgery I looked flat I thought the bra was like a girdle so I wasn't worried when they removed my bra I am a b which is very small , I cried everyday I was inconsolable when I went back to see the doctor he said he thought I wanted them small and they looked better on my frame .
Avatar f tn If your breast scarring from the augmentation healed well, then I would expect a similar result from scarring with a breast lift. A reduction of implant size with a lift would be an appropriate operation. It should not be considered until after three or four months after you baby comes or after you stop nursing.
Avatar f tn breast lift, breast reduction, and breast enlargement (augmentation). Depending on your specific case, one or more of these techniques would be helpful to restore a youthful look to your bosom. Breasts are not stagnant organs, they are always changing throughout life. In a young women they grow and develop. They change each month with the menstrual cycle. Pregnancy affects the breasts as does nursing.
Avatar n tn i had my cosmetic surgery 3 yrs ago.
Avatar n tn Finally, virtually no pair of breasts are perfectly symmetrical anyway, and it is technically not possible to assure perfect symmetry after breast reduction and lift surgery.
Avatar f tn I have found that thigh lift surgery and wound healing in this area is notorious for wound healing problems. This is due to a combination of blood supply to the local tissues in that area, maceration of skin in this moist environment, as well as tension along the suture line. If you add to that a nutritional problem due to malabsorption, it is not surprising that healing has been a problem for you. Ultimately, full healing will occur.
Avatar n tn I had a breast lift/reduction and tummy tuck in July of 2008. Since then all of the skin on my right breast died turned into this hard dark mass. After having that for 5 weeks my dr. removed it leaving me no skin on my breast. Since then I have developed horrible pain on the surface of my boob. The dr. tells me that in two more months he will stretch the skin over my breast. Will the pain go away? Should I be having such pain? Why did all of the skin die on that one breast?
Avatar n tn Im so so glad I found this website aswhile! I had a breast reduction in 2007 and I had a pulled muscle on the top of my left breast and I still have pain from it. But ever since the pulled muscle I now have pain in my lower left breast and I dont think it has anything to do with my pulled muscle.My husband keeps telling me its muscle tissue from my breast reduction and now that I have read all of the post on here Im starting to think thats what it is.
Avatar f tn 6 yrs ago i had a lift/reduction so this really freaked me out. To make a long story short when i went for a mamogram it was actually that my left breast had shrunk. A LOT. i know your thinking how could i not notice but i was too focused on the larger breast. By the way it was the same size it had always been. My left breast is about the size and feel of a baseball. A cup size smaller than the other.
Avatar n tn hey, i had a breast reduction 12 years ago. with my first i got colostrum five days before delivery. i wasn't well prepared and i gave up trying to breast feed after two days. i didn't know if i was producing any milk and my son was getting anxious to eat, so i gave in. i also have to say i did not have a great support system at the time. this time around though I am determined to try harder. the first time around my nips wouldn't get firm enough to latch, this time they seem more sensitive.
Avatar f tn It costs as much to have the implants removed and have a breast lift as it does to have implants. Right now you could probably get reasonable FIXED RATE financing to have this done. Ask at the Doctors office, look on the net for reviews of this sort of thing... When I had my implants removed, I also had a mastopexy (or breast lift). I was very happy with my results and very glad to have the effects from the silicon gradually disappear.
Avatar n tn I am so happy i came across this web site, I had my breast done about a month and a half ago from 36A to a 36C and i am very unhappy. I explained to my surgeon that i wanted my breast big and sexy, all i got was averge. It makes me even more upset when girls on the street my same hight and weight had breast the same size or sometimes bigger than mine and i spent all this money. I am thinking about getting them done again but my finance is not there and may not be there for another few years.
Avatar m tn OMG I have the exact problem. I am 4 weeks out from bi lateral lift and reduction reconstruction surgery. I had phyllodes tumer cut out a year ago and just had reconstruction surgery. Right breast sore and tender but healing nicely. Under my left breast I have an open wound. Just came from the Dr yesterday and he has me doing wet to dry gauze. soaking 2x2 in saline and inserting in the wound and dry 4x4 over top. I have INTENSE pain, which I never anticipated this far out from surgery.
167 tn?1374177417 i had a breast reduction in 2000. so i did the opposite lol but recovery was horrible. i was sqeamish and made dh change my dressing but i would do it again b/c even after having jett they are still perky. which was a surprise. just whatever you do, do not let them remove the nipple.
Avatar n tn I' ve been thinking about getting breast reduction or lift or implants. So maybe wearing a bra wont be so painful? I also want to have kids, but will that make it worse?? I hope someone out there can help me.
Avatar n tn Had delayed TRAM recon with lift and reduction in November '05. Subsequent MRI in 1/06 showed 4 cysts in my remaining breast and have since grown another. Two are simple cysts, one is lobulated and two appear to be complex. I have been told that cysts are no longer considered a big deal---rarely removed, often not even aspirated, etc. So why are we scoping my breast in some form every few months? I have had mammo, 2 US and another MRI coming up next month.
Avatar f tn I went to another consultation and the cosmetic doctor told me that in order to remove bra bulge you must lipo the axillary pad not breast lateral. Breast lateral usually is for a breast procedure such as lift or reduction. I did not have anything done to my breast. Can someone explain me the difference is what was suppose to be my symptoms and the purpose of these procedures?
Avatar f tn I had a breast reduction surgery two month ago and my breast looks like rectangle than normal breast. Is there anything can be done or it reshape itself overtime. I heard that it will take 6 months to get the right shape . Please help.
Avatar f tn Now pregnant with my third, I have swollen breast and terribly tender underarms, it hurst to sleep on my side and I'm definatley considering having it removed after my baby is born. Maybe we're all "normal" afterall.
