Breast lift healing

Common Questions and Answers about Breast lift healing


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 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 n tn hi, A week and a half ago, I had a breast implant put into my rigt breast and a mastopexy which is a lift on the left. Now, I still have pain in the right breast. I went to get my stitches out the week after, but the nurse said i need to keep them in the left breast vertical incision. I am worried that it's not going to get better by the looks of it. Also, having to wear a sports bra makes it very hard to wear normal clothing when I go, seeing as how it is summer.
Avatar n tn I had breast impants and lift 3 weeks ago, had a hematoma in my left breast the very same day and had to have a second surgery on that breast, that night. For the past 2 days, I've been experiencing tenderness to touch and pain in the left breast...what could this mean? There is no swelling, no bruising. I still have steritapes on my breasts- to be removed tomorrow. Does it sound like it's going to be O.K?

Avatar f tn There are a number of topical agents that can be used on this common area of poor healing after a breast lift. Your plastic surgeon should be closely following this situation and advising you on the best appropriate local treatment. It would be inappropriate to recommend a specific mode of treatment without first examining you.
Avatar n tn How long should one expect to have to be so uncomfortable after a lower face lift.? It seems to get worse if I am at all stressed or after having done some physical activity.
Avatar f tn I knew my breasts would droop after the removal, so I also had a breast lift. I am glad I did. My Doctors refused to believe the implants had anything to do with how I felt... so I found an excellent plastic surgeon and had the implants removed on my own. If you have had a rupture and you have insurance, very often your insurance will pay for removal, be careful how you phrase your request for removal, tell them you do not feel well since the rupture.
Avatar n tn Depending on how intense the episode was, it can take anywhere from 5-10 seconds for the pain to subside and disappear completely. The pain happens when I lift my arm into certain positions (i.e., overhead presses especially when my arm lifts next to my head or behind my head). I am no longer able to put a bar behind my neck and grip it from behind. The motion of bringing my arm up and back to grasp the bar is excrutiating.
Avatar n tn Hi, My paternal grandmother got breast cancer in her mid 30's and beat it. My great aunt on my maternal side had breast cancer and died. My aunts, mom and cousins on my mom side have issues with lumps in there breast. It seems that every year they have to have a lump removed. Always benign. My paternal grandmother and I are like two pea's in a pod. Every health issue she had growing up I have gotten, right down to thinning hair and a short stature.

Avatar n tn I am 37 years old. My family has a history of Breast Cancer. I had my baseline mamogram at 35. Calcifications were found in my right breast. I had a needle biopsy, came back fine. Had re-check 6 mos. later, more calcifications, needle biopsy, came back fine. Another 6 mos. re-check & bi-lateral, more calcifications in right breast. Surgical biopsy, came back fine. I am scheduled for my next 6 mos. re-check this week.What else can I ask my doctor to do...should I be getting other tests???
Avatar n tn I too have this problem! It stated soon after a got a breast lift and implants to correct a slight tubular breast disorder. I was wondering if it could have anything to do with the implants or the scars or just the fact that my breasts are bigger than they were. My problem, though, is that its a very strong oder! I'm not sure if people can smell it but I constantly worry that they can.
Avatar n tn Six weeks ago I had a mastoplexy with analogous augmentation and a lower body lift. Healing has been slower then I expected with an area on the hip that become necrotic and is now a 6cm x 5cm x 2 cm hole. This started as an scab that was 2cm x 2cm that has grown over the last few weeks, but I believe that the corner has been turned. My big concern is the Doctor removed a scab on the breast and now I have a 6 cm tunnel and a hard mass that he said could be necrotic fat.
Avatar m tn 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. I am on a 3rd round of antibiotics because the skin is slightly red. When I removed dressing it started to bleed. I just went back to work and sometimes the pain is hard to handle.
Avatar f tn Dear Kelik, For patients with breast implant reconstructions, exercise can usually be resumed within 2 to 4 weeks. For patients with living tissue reconstructions (e.g. a TRAM flap), most exercise can usually also be resumed within 2 to 4 weeks, however, abdominal exercise should be limited for about two months. Use caution with exercises that seem to cause you more difficulty or undue discomfort – you may want to discuss these issues with your surgeon.
Avatar n tn Two months ago my right breastBreast - premenstrual tenderness and swelling Breast augmentation - series Breast biopsy Breast cancer Breast infection Breast lift (mastopexy) - series Breast lump Breast lump removal Breast lump removal - series Breast lump self exam Breast lumps became very itchy.
Avatar f tn She went into surgery for about 45 mins, came out, went home and that was the end of it. Both my sisters now have breast tissue under their underarms and both hate the way it looks. They both had it checked out and the doc told them it was harmless. One sister though has been complaining that it hurts her when she is close to getting her AF so shes going back to the doc to possibly have it removed.
Avatar n tn Did you go to a breast center? If not, I would recommend making an appointment at a breast center to get a 3rd opinion. If you can find a radiologist and breast surgeon to discuss this and answer your questions you'll feel better. Sometimes women can't get a stereotactic scheduled for 2 months after their mammo, so don't worry about the length of time that has lapsed. If you don't do the stereotactic, you still need some type of follow-up such as a 6 month mammogram.

Avatar n tn The first couple of years they looked great, but now my nipple is looking a little low on breast mound. I was wondering if I had lift if I could get away with using same implants, or do I need a new set? If I got new ones could I get silicone? Thanks for advice!
Avatar f tn Hi - i am 55 yrs old - full menopause - taking no hormones. I have recently noticed 3 " strings" under the outer lower edge of my right hand breast if i lift it up. They seem to go into the breast and 1 radiates downwards to about the level of my ribcage. They are not painful - just slightly tender - and i feel a pulling sensation. There are no glands up under my arm.
Avatar n tn not too many places to go for a heart felt, healing chuckle. I am fortunate that I don't need this emotional lift as much as I did during Tx. The healing jokes helped me tremendously when I was down many a day. HEy!, but we can still IM each other! My puter useage has slowed down quite a bit but I will make time for friends. take care sweetie and go for that PCR! I'll have mine on Valentine's day, do it by then and we can celebrate when it comes back good news!
Avatar n tn I have muscle spasm in or around the ribs on both sides (in the front under the breast and sometimes in the back at the same horizontal position), it feels like a ball rolling, in that it switches sides. It occurs even at night during sleep, painful enough to wake me. I only know that when I relax and stretch (the side where the knot is) using several positions I have to wait till it goes away, in many cases to have it return in other places described above.
Avatar n tn I had a breast reduction june 08 after the surgery the healing process began. I developed a greenish brown infection on my left breast which was treated by my doctor. Now my left breast is hard like a rock with two lumps inside them. Could thiis be scar tissue? It is really painful and I can feel the lumps really good.
