Avatar f tn Hello, I had the gastric bypass surgery 1 year ago. I started at 222 and I last weighed in at 146. My next check up is in January, but I am 11lbs away from my goal weight of 135. Now I plan on getting a full body lift to remove the excess loose skin, but I'm wondering can I have my plastic surgery now instead of waiting til I reach my goal weight? Or waiting til the full 2yrs has gone by to completely stabilize my body? What would be the safer decision?
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.
1527286 tn?1292790087 I have had radiologists and surgeons tell me that once a breast has had a lumpectomy that you can no longer rely on OR do a sentinel node biopsy. I am having difficulty resolving these contradicting statements made by medical professionals. How do I decide if I have the sentinel node biopsy or not? any information will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
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 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 am unable to lift anything with my hands. It even brings me to tears when I have to blow my nose. Any suggestions would be a great help.
Avatar n tn I have found a tender, painful-when-pressed area, on the lower leftside/outside of my left breast. Each time I press this small area it is instant sharp pain. Can anyone give me insight as to what kind of physician or who I should see about taking care of this?
Avatar f tn In Nov. 08 I had a mid face lift surgery and have had facial pain and continued numbness on the left side of my face and upper lip. I have even experienced a lot of tooth pain & my dentist can't find a problem with the teeth. I'm afraid I have permanent nerve damage and most days, there is an extreme amount of pain. I have taken so much ibuprofen and tylenol, I have developed gastritis. Is there any help for nerve damage related to a mid face lift.
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 Breast lifts are uniformly performed with breast reductions. With a lift as the sole procedure, often just excess skin is removed without significant reduction of breast volume. With a reduction, both breast tissue and fat is removed along reshaping the breasts and elevation of nipple position. The decision as to which procedure to select depends on whether there is a need for volume reduction.
Avatar m tn Both breast reduction and Breast lift are about re-positioning the nipple areolar complex to a more appropriate level (above the Inframammary fold), tightening the breast tissue and removal of excess skin. In breast lift, only a small amount of tissue is removed for shaping purpose but in breast reduction, a more significant volume is removed to actually changed the cup size of the breast.
Avatar f tn I had this procedure done and I am using the cpm and walking as required I am already at 70 degrees on day three but the knee is swollen and I was able to lift my leg on my on for the first few days but now my thigh is swollen and I can’t lift it at all without help. My knee was very damaged and I had many surgeries prior to total knee replacement had Donated bone placed in the knee many years before this procedure.
Avatar f tn Has anyone experienced pain in the shoulders and arms for months after bypass surgery? It has been close to 4 months and the pain still is severe in my arms and shoulders when I lift my arms to do any work or just put on my jacket.
Avatar n tn I simply need more volume to match my unaffected breast and a lift for the unaffected breast. I want to get as close as possible to the way I was before, and I'm not interested in an implant due to encapsulation risks and future surgeries to replace an aging implant. I understand that an exam would need to be performed to determine my suitability in terms of my blood vessels and so forth. 1) Is a DIEP or similar procedure not involving muscles an option for some lumpectomy patients?
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 f tn I have recently been diagnosed with LCIS, ADH in two areas and papilomatosis with a strong immediate family history of breast and ovarian cancer. From the beginning I have thought about a prophylatic bi-lateral mastectomy. Is a prophylatic bi-lateral mastectomy unreasonable? I too have had many different opions from oncology surgeons and oncologists. Lois This discussion is related to <a href=''>LCIS</a>.
Avatar n tn Eish I am so sick of Surgeons!!!!! My kid had her's removed as the scan showed a gallstone...When they went it - there was NO gallstone...... Its the biggest mistake of my lift for telling the surgeon to go ahead with the removal because of this so called "gallstone" ....I want to sue the *____________* ..
Avatar n tn to do my own surgery and had a choice of several Breast Surgeons. I will say that only a very small amount of tissue can be obtained by needle biopsy. The Path report stating "consistant with duct carcinoma" seems to lack something unless there was much more detail to it than you posted. I'd still get all my films and reports together and get a 3rd opinion if at all possible. Good Luck ...
Avatar f tn Try getting on the internet and looking up surgeons that do breast reductions and look up surgeons that do this operation. Ask for a consultation most are free, Email call or go see them with all paperwork and even a bank statement for the last 3 months showing you cannot pay and your medical records will show you must have the procedure. Maybe you will find a kind heart to listen and help you!!
Avatar n tn I will be done with the tissues expander in couple of weeks. The size looks acceptable, except two breats are mile apart. I look ok with a bra and some creative inserts to lift the sagging breast.. My PS almost always does a small implant to accomplish symetry. My obgyn says it will interfere with the screening. There is also an option of breast lift. I 'd like to hear from those who have gone through this. Thanks This discussion is related to <a href='http://www.medhelp.
Avatar n tn Any surgeon can do it as long as they do breast surgeries i.e. breast augmentation.
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.
Avatar f tn That was seven months ago I’ve had an MRI of my hip which shows a slight tear in the labrum I have had a CAT scan which showed nothing of consequence in and a prior hernia repair from 1998 to still be intact. If I lift anything over 30 pounds I get tight in the groin area. And soreness in my abdominal muscles as well as sometimes the hip the thigh and in my left Glute. I also limp for a couple days but go back to normal after that .
