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 , well as doing them both..
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 f tn Liposuction of the breasts is possible, but with the size of your breasts, I would caution that the amount of reduction may be limited. A breast lift is also possible, but may be advisable at the time of breast reduction after you have children and have completed nursing. Your breasts will likely undergo shape and volume change with pregnancy and since you plan to do the major procedure then, it seems best to accomplish everything then.
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 You will get use to them. I went from a 36FF to a 36D. It is quite a shock at first. Just think you will be able to wear cute bras and not have the straps digging into your shoulders. If after a while your still not happy with them you can always have a small implant put in.
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 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 Subject: Breast Reduction Pain Four Years Later! Question I had breast reduction almost four years ago. My left breast has been hurting so much .When I get cold , the nipple starts to hurt and it sends excruciating pain to the breast. In order to relieve this pain if I am at home I will warm up a heating pad and the pain will start to subside. However, it does not diminish completely. I also experience itching, sometimes the itching is excruciating .
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 f tn 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. One thing you want to do is get that stuff out of your body and you need to make sure your Doctor understands that. Sometimes a letter to him with all your concerns, wants and needs regarding your surgery is a good idea. If you are dealing with a Doctor who resents being asked questions... FIND ANOTHER DOCTOR.
Avatar n tn 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. I could say i won't be going back to the same surgeon that didn't care about what i wanted and gave me what he wanted to give me.
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.
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 Based on your description, some form of modified breast lift with coning of the breast to achieve central fullness seem a likely possibility
Avatar f tn It is actually liposuctioned out. The nurse called it a breast reduction, but that was not the technical term. The Doctor explained that I may have drainage tubes for one or two weeks following the procedure to empty the drainage so there is no risk of infection. I have been told to wait until I was done having children before getting this surgery done. I'll let you know how all goes. The surgery is planned for later this month. Good luck to you all.
Avatar n tn This could be due to a dilated or irregular milk duct, an injury to the breast (such as a cut or bite), or less commonly due to breast cancer. Breast pain is a common breast symptom. The reason for breast pain is not clearly understood, and is not usually associated with breast cancer. Breast pain is sometimes associated with hormonal variations and is then called cyclical breast pain.
Avatar n tn I had a tram flap and implants and feel like I have been bound with metal. I can't turn over at night or lift my arms freely over my head. I am going to another plastic surgeon and will probably have the implants removed. I feel like mine might be scar tissue. Does anyone else feel that when they lay down a bind goes around the chest, shoulders and arms?
Avatar n tn , have always been a D cup, as I have aged I am a D Cup plus and I don't like it... I am planning on a reduction and lift, if the Doctor I had before has not retired, I would use him again. If I need to find another Doctor I will look for a American Board of Plastic Surgery Certified WOMAN Doctor, who has lots of experience in doing breasts. (You want your Doctor to be from the largest Plastic Surgery Certification outfit you can get.
Avatar n tn You can try having the baby suck more on the breast that produces less milk, or to suck on that breast first when the baby is most hungry, to stimulate the flow on that side.
1222635 tn?1366399886 did it give you a natural lift without actually getting a lift? all in all, what were the results of your augmentation, no matter what you had done?
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?
