Avatar n tn 1.i want to get a breast lift i need help to chose whats beeter celicone or saline.
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 f tn I am currently on a weightloss journey, once I hit goal I would really like to get a breast reduction, but I am wondering would just a lift work as well or do you need both ... Could someone let me know what results they bring getting one over the other ,...as well as doing them both..
Avatar f tn The risk is that the breast tissue sags over the implant and results in an unacceptable shape. Performing a breast lift over your existing implants, or over newly placed submuscular implants, will likely result in a more predictable result with better shape. Of course you must be willing to accept the additional scars a lift requires.
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 n tn Dear Doctor, I am early 50's, contemplating breast lift surgery. I may have implants done at the same time. My main concerns are these: 1) Will the nipple sensation be the same after surgery and recovery? Nipple feeling is a big part of arousal for me and I would hate to lose it. 2) At my age, should I be concerned about the life of implants? I would rather not do anything that will certainly require additional surgery if I live to be elderly. Thank you.
Avatar f tn I had a breast lift with silicone implants and a mini tummy tuck 5 weeks ago. Approximately 2 weeks after surgery the incision area under both breasts opened quite quickly. Within a couple of days the wounds were significantly large and weeping. For the last 3 weeks I have been on oral antibiotics and treating the wounds twice a day with silver sulfadiazine. I don't see any sign of healing and my PS will determine today if I need to be seen by a specialist.
Avatar f tn when i put the creasent or doughnut lift forward to my surgeon in my pre op consultations he was unsure what they were so i decided to go with the lolly pop lift as i did not want him to perform a procedure he was not familier with ( my surgeon is abroad in cyprus ) My question is, is it still possible to have a lift now that i have breast implants as i feel that my breasts still have sag and which of the lifts would you recommend is best with an implant already in place.
Avatar f tn My doctor suggested implants and a lift. I was against the lift, because of the scar up the breast. Well he ended up putting in extremely large implants against what I asked for. He was suggesting a 450 cc with the lift, but he ended up giving me 600 cc with out the lift. I am way to big and now I have bottomed out. I asked him to fix the problem.
Avatar n tn In my experience, it is unusual to require a lift after explantation, even with 500 cc implants. In addition, lift will require additional external scarring. Although your breasts will be obviously smaller, I would suggest implant removal as a fist step. After three or four months or more, if you strongly feel an lift is necessary, you can then undergo this procedure.
Avatar n tn I like to know from you two and others, how do they feel for the husband. I am a breast man. Would the implants interfere or put limitations on squeezing, cuddling, hugging etc during foreplay ? Would the breasts feel harder to touch for the husband ? What would be the difference between saline and silicone, in husband's point of view ? Thanks for you input.
Avatar m tn I'm 40, childless (which means ptosis was not due to breast feeding) and had a breast lift 4 weeks ago. Implants were out of the question for me. If you want perkiness a lift, whether the incisions will be concentric, lollipop or inverted T is for you to discuss AT LENGTH with a plastic surgeon. I received an inverted T, which I am not at all happy with because the P.S. that did my breasts did not specify that during my consultation.
142722 tn?1281537216 First, breast feeding will not likely be a problem with breast implants in place. Breast feeding will not affect the position or the size of youre breast implants themselves. However, the overlying breast tissue may well undergo changes after you complete nursing. These involutional changes can result in loss of breast volume with accompanying sagging due to excess skin.
142722 tn?1281537216 just wondering if the implants you have are silicone or saline?not sure if the saline are more likely to leak??
Avatar n tn It is nice to know I'm not alone. I still don't know whether to change the plans from implants to TRAM flaps or the like instead.
Avatar f tn Many commercial products that are available some of these products are herbal-based and contain ingredients such as dandelion root, soy, fenugreek, and Indian ginseng. These herbs are believed to firm the breast tissue. Surgical options like breast-lift surgery or breast implants help enhance the shape and size of your breasts and improve their firmness. The answer is based on information provided. Exact advice is not possible without a proper examination and investigations.
Avatar f tn Pregnancy itself causes changes in breast so choosing to breastfeed or not won't make a difference in your result. My boobs were huge prior to my pregnancy and after oh man I couldn't fit into any of my shirts It looked like I got ridiculously huge implants & man did they hurt I honestly wouldn't mind to lose a cup size I hate the wrong attention I get because of them. & I just love having this amazing bonding time with my little girl I love knowing that I can provide enough for her.
Avatar n tn In addition to examining your current breast shape and size, it would be critical to know what kind of implants (gel or saline) and size of implants, any evidence of leaking, any evidence of capsule contracture, are symptoms still present, when were the implants placed, are they submuscular or subglandular, what size were you before the implants were done. It sounds like you were advised to have the implants removed ASAP. On what basis was this advise given. Do you want the implants out.
Avatar n tn 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 f tn Hello, Breast implants can cause change in weight but your back problems seem unrelated to the implants. The commonest causes of chronic low back pain are lumbar strain, nerve irritation, bone and joint conditions (arthritis), osteoporosis, lumbar radiculopathy, narrowing or stenosis of the spinal cord cavity. Even bad posture can lead to low back pain.

Avatar n tn I have implants under the muscle incision in the fold and I have heard that cutting in the nipple can sever nerves and damage the nipple. Not the case for everyone. I would talk to your ob or a plastic surgeon to see if there is a way to tell before baby is born.
Avatar n tn I had what I was told was to be both a breast lift and implants. To begin with I had two consultations with the Dr. and both times I decided the 375 cc size was the right size. He also said that he could get "very good" results with the breast lift. At my first consultation post op, I found out that he used implants that were 475 cc and overfilled them to 520 or so. 1.
