Common Questions and Answers about Breast lift reduction


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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 In 1999, I got breast implants to go from a 32A to a 32D. I have regretted getting them that big since day one. I wish I'd gotten a small C cup and am considering getting them reduced. I am wondering if the skin would be all saggy now and it would look bad if I got the reduction. Has anyone had a reduction and how did it turn out? I know the skin is stretched considerably because I went so big. The reason I don't like them is because I feel like nothing fits me very well.
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 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.
