Common Questions and Answers about Breast lift scar photos


Avatar m tn 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.
438513 tn?1215703374 Just uploaded two new photos... one of my scar at three days post-op, with the drain still there; the other from today, one week post op, no stitches. No more Franken-Mom (as my kids liked to call me).
Avatar n tn Hi Dr. Rosenberg, My ps is about to perform a capsulorraphy on me for my bottomed out revision using PDS sutures only to 'lift' the pocket up and hope that scar tissues will build up and help create a newly formed crease. Since my breast is already harder than the other side and have had more surgeries, I am concerned about capsular contracture. I heard taking Vitamin E and other supplements such as the following (Scar Multiplex Formula) would help: http://www.smhomeopathic.
Avatar f tn It feels like a small rope or cord. It is big enough that if I lift up my breast and look in the mirror the vein is visible. My nipple is also extremely sensitive and somewhat painful. Any ideas? I saw the doctor today and all he said was "It will go away".
Avatar f tn d put on sterile gauze over the scar and then have the tape over that, keeping the scar closed.
1174607 tn?1264173583 My surgeon is wanting me to do a lift and implants to fix a lumpectomy that I had in May of 2009. It wasn't cancer, it was a galactocile the size of a softball that solidified (after trauma to my milk ducts during a car accident in Feb 2008 5wks after baby). Anyway, I have an inverted nipple and you can see were the seatbelt went thru my breast and he said due to the trauma he wanted to do the lift first and let that heal, and then do the implants.
Avatar f tn If the blood supply were cut off to the breast I would think there would be other symptoms than just the reduction in size. I would advise you to consult a Breast Specialist and take your films with you OR your Plastic Surgeon may also be able to shed some light on this issue. If as you state this started 2 months ago I wouldn't call it "all of a sudden" though. Seeing a Breast Specialist would still be my first thought. Regards ....
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 n tn Hello, I had breast augmentation and a lift 1 week ago. My surgeon bandaged my chest and used surgical tape to keep bandages in place. When he removed the tape, my top layer of skin came right along with it! Now instead of being proud of my new cleavage, I am hiding it because of the burn from the tape. Is there anything I can do to minimize the appearance of the mark across my chest?
427258 tn?1266445242 I have been having an internal conflict with myself and my husband about Breast Implants and Lift. Since having my children my breasts have changed sizes numerous times as well as lost the 'perkiness'. I am young and have worked hard to try and get my body back into shape. I know I am a mother, but I want a typical 24 y/o body, is that selfish? What are your thoughts about getting the procedure done?
Avatar n tn I see there is a simular question already in the forum. My question has to do with the after effects I've had with a lower face lift. It seems that off to the each side of my mouth I have a bulge. They are different from each other. On the left side it's like the skin didn't lay down on the underneath muscle and it pretrudes, I can grab it. (?) On the right side there is a spot the side of a golf ball with something under it. Like gooush. My Doctor thinks it's scar tissue.
Avatar f tn when i asked them what it could be , they seemed to be reaching for reasons in my history, for example, i had a breast lift , that failed and reduction but this was done years ago, prior to my first mammo in 201, they said well it could be from your reconstructive surgery? Really, a surgery I had in 2006? seems odd to me.
477608 tn?1238527958 2) Given the anchor scar from breast lift/reconstrucion, would an augmentation be better as far as scarring? I tend to think I am too large for aug. 3) Is there anything that can be done for my leg dent? What would that have been caused by? 4) Anything for the stretch marks on my hips? 5) Since I also have cellulite on my hips/buttocks/thighs...would a lower body contour be the key? Does that include a tummy tuck? What is recovery for lower body contour?
Avatar f tn I had a lumpectomy in 2012. Dr. Robert Williams (Bob), Lewis Gale, Salem Va made a cut all the way around my areola. My cancer was not there or anywhere close, so this cut was totally unneeded. He claimed he wanted to do a breast lift. I didn't need that. He is very unprofessional also. Well it has been 3 years later and I am in daily pain and the area is very puffy. Does anyone know anything that can be done about the pain and discomfort? I wish I never went to him.
Avatar n tn I had a breast lift w/ lipo 20 months ago- my left breast has been feeling like something is tearing inside and I have a strange, almost achey feeling in the breast and towards my armpit. This breast is larger than the right, but always has been. I also gained apprx 15 lbs since then and am not sure if this has caused these feeling. I am at a point where I don't know if I should be concerned and go back and see the cosmetic surgeon or should I see my family doctor.

Avatar f tn Five months after mastectomy, removal of 13 lymph nodes and simultaneous silicone implant have developed cording NOT in arm but from implant in right breast to ribcage below. Appeared after final chemo with tax. Initially thought pain in breast and ribcage was nerve endings waking up after surgery and initial raised cording a fold in implant or scar tissue.
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 had a breast lift 6 yr ago but no implants. Hopefully it is scar tissue.
Avatar n tn by then enough scar tissue formed for the neck lift to hold by the scar tissue. He had to debate a large ball of irritated tissue and so I think a few small fragmenbts of sutures remained my neck and face are finally looking great however I still am popping tiny fragments of the suture every few months. It looks much like a pimple that bad under the skin kind that swell but they go away once I pull the tiny piece out or the Dr pulls it out if I can't.
Avatar f tn While the tech was doing the left breast, she asked me if I had ever had breast surgery on that breast. I have never had breast surgery. She said the ultrasound showed scar tissue. How could that be as I have never had breast surgery? This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/259463'>Breast cancer scar tissue?</a>.
Avatar f tn On April 30th 2008 I made a choice that would scar me for life I was a very large 38 DDD . I havd a lot of back pain and thought this would be the answer i was looking for .

Avatar n tn Hi Cindy, I also have a strange C like indentation when I lift up my arms. I celebrated my 1 year anniversary on 4/28/10. I noticed the change after I lost about 30 lbs. Now I am 50 lbs lighter & notice it less. The MD did not feel anything there. I had my first Mamo in 1/10 . 3 months after radiation my breasts were still sore so I didn't have a 3 month Mamo.
167 tn?1374173817 My one remaining breast got a nice lift during my reconstruction. It wasn't reduced, just put back in place to where it was before kids. Nice job by my doc, only a small scar around the nipple (which gets lighter as time goes on) and a small line underneath the breast. It REALLY looks just like when I was much younger and before gravity took over! All in all, after babies and breastfeeding, I think a boob job is definitely in order.
Avatar n tn If your doctor tells you that you have to have a MRI of the breast because your mammogram showed you have a radial scar, will the MRI show if it is breast cancer? Do women with radial scars more likely to have breast cancer?
Avatar f tn I had a seroma following a neck lift in June of 2008 and I still deal w the scar tissue swellng up and distorting my jawline! Seromas are the worst!! They tell you that it will resolve and mostly it does but it will take years. I am on a daily dose of acne strenth antibiotics to keep the swelling down. I had to have e extra surgeries! One to remove tje deep disolvable sutures which we thought could be causing problems (will never know for sure) and another to remove necrotic fat!
