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.
1117076 tn?1258945279 It is possible to perform both a breast lift (mastopexy) and removal of your axillary breasts at the same time. You would need to accept residual scarring from the lift. Cost will vary from surgeon to surgeon and be different from similar procedures in California, where I practice. Clearly it would be advisable to obtain one or more consultations with local plastic surgeons to get an opinion about a lift and axillary breast resection along with the associated costs.
Avatar n tn Hi, My paternal grandmother got breast cancer in her mid 30's and beat it. My great aunt on my maternal side had breast cancer and died. My aunts, mom and cousins on my mom side have issues with lumps in there breast. It seems that every year they have to have a lump removed. Always benign. My paternal grandmother and I are like two pea's in a pod. Every health issue she had growing up I have gotten, right down to thinning hair and a short stature.
Avatar n tn I am 37 years old. My family has a history of Breast Cancer. I had my baseline mamogram at 35. Calcifications were found in my right breast. I had a needle biopsy, came back fine. Had re-check 6 mos. later, more calcifications, needle biopsy, came back fine. Another 6 mos. re-check & bi-lateral, more calcifications in right breast. Surgical biopsy, came back fine. I am scheduled for my next 6 mos. re-check this week.What else can I ask my doctor to do...should I be getting other tests???
Avatar n tn but as a result of the rapid weight loss i now suffer with sagging skin around my mid section and my breast look like deflated balloons. i was wondering if any one knew a pro bono surgen who could help me with a breast lift.
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.
517119 tn?1285874992 six rounds of taxotere, adrimyocin and cytoxine. reconstruction on mast side may 6, 2008 breast lift-augmentation on good side/tatto/nipple repair on bad side tbd...probably in august some time... i had one lymph node involved so hence the six rounds of oh joy!! seeing that youre tiny, youre probably good for the breast implant rather than a tram flap...i would check into having your ps piggyback your gs to start helps a lot....
Avatar f tn She went into surgery for about 45 mins, came out, went home and that was the end of it. Both my sisters now have breast tissue under their underarms and both hate the way it looks. They both had it checked out and the doc told them it was harmless. One sister though has been complaining that it hurts her when she is close to getting her AF so shes going back to the doc to possibly have it removed.
Avatar n tn Since a radiologist does stereotactic biopsies you don't need to see a breast surgeon but it could be helpful to sort out your options and decide if this is the best proceedure for you with your other problems or if another proceedure might be better. I would tend to go with the more experienced radiologist's opinion, even if it means biopsy. But then again, how experienced is this other radiologist?
Avatar n tn This surgery would probably fall under the "breast lift" or mastopexy procedure. I only say this because it sounds like the larger breast is lower than the other. It is great that you don't want implants, they were a disaster for me, had to have them removed after 10 years. Many, many procedures to resolve problems with implants. I don't know how old you are, but as one ages, there is usually a weight gain. So as you get older you breasts will probably enlarge some.
Avatar n tn My wife is thinking of getting breast augumenatation. I am not too excited about it, mainly because of long term complications. What is the 5 year and 10 year prognosis for such cosmetic surgery ?
Avatar n tn I breast fed my daughter until she was 4 years old. I am very proud of this although I felt I had to do it in relative secrecy for the last 2 years as family and friends frowned upon what I was doing and thought it to be rather abnormal. My daughter is now 7 and still has a very fond affection for my breasts. She likes to hug and kiss them as much as possible. Could you please let me know if you think that this is ok and acceptable or should I try to discourage.
Avatar n tn I have similar problems, but the lump and the pain feels like it is just underneath my left breast. I went to the breast clinic, and they did a breast examination, and determined that I do not have breast cancer. For some reason, I don't believe the doctor. I have had this pain for many months now, and would really like to know what it is. My left breast has one spot, on the side under my armpit where it hurts.
Avatar n tn Most doctors don't know it is possible, but there have been 2 cases in the literature. Also, phantom breast pain has been noted in breast reductions. Plastic Surgeons should tell people about this, but they don't, whether they are aware or not. You are best to find a Plastic Surgeon at a university hospital, or a neurologist who specializes in treating pain. There are medications that may help, that treat nerve pain.
Avatar f tn Hi. Since April I have had pain above my left breast. It's not constantly there, but it comes and goes. Sometimes it feels like a burning pain, other times it feels like a cramp. I've also felt it in my armpit at times and it will also creep up over my shoulder. Although I VERY RARELY feel it on the right side, it DOES happen once in awhile. But for the most part it's been my left side.
Avatar m tn The last time I saw the plastic surgeon to sort this out, he promised that he would lift the other breast at the same time,but I doubt if he will. Sorry need to vent! I cannot believe this has all come to me, I dont know if you remember my original posts 3 years ago when they told me I had ductal carcinoma, well it certainly seems to have developed into a horror show.
Avatar n tn im 43 and would love to have a face and neck lift. i have used every cream, and had botox and fillers, everyone says i should not mess around with my face. i just see wrinkles and around my jaw area saggy. i hate looking in the mirror. they say because i have messed with my face that has damaged it. i had my breast done and they are fab. i have a fab figure but it does not match my face. what can i do. i hate it.
Avatar f tn Hi, I live in NYC and I am planning on having a tummy tuck and a breast lift w/ implants done in a couple of weeks. I work for NYPD and I don't make alot of money. My husband and I agree it is best to pay for the surgery upfront oppose to financing. So, cost is a major factor. I am familiar with 3 surgeons work, my sisters and co-workers have referred these surgeons to me and I have seen their work. However 1 surgeon's fees are alot lower thant the other 2. Is this a reason to be skeptical?
Avatar f tn Often breast reduction is an insurance covered benefit, depending on whether there are functional problems and the amount of tissue that is required for treatment (insurance is often denied for cases that appear to be for primarily a breast lift). Most Board Certified Plastic surgeons are qualified to perform this surgery. Your best option is to ask for a referral from your primary care doctor.
Avatar n tn Hi, I had a lift and a breast augmentation about a month and a half ago. My right breat is much fuller at the top and my left is not as big or as firm. I asked my doctor and he said the implant may have not dropped completely.I find it hard to believe it takes over a month for an implant to drop. Do most Drs. use the same amount of cc's in each breast?
Avatar f tn and should my ps have used a smaller implant as he was not removing any breast tissue to do a lift also are the implants enough to lift the breast or will i just have saggy breasts with implants. i realise it is hard to answer these questions without seeing me in person but i would greatly appriciate some answers before i go back to my ps with a list of complants i do not want to say any thing unless it is necessary. thank you in advance for your time.
1527286 tn?1292793687 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 f tn 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 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 n tn diag. with breast cancer late in my 38 year {cronological time} of life. i opted for the european form of treatment. mastatic within the breast. last may was my 3rd year anaver. for finishing chemo. out of the wood?somewhat.. backgroung: i have been an athlete all my life.still jogg 5 miles a day, every day and lift weights. family history of heart disease.may 2008 i notice problems breathing from time to time when i jogg. september 18th i go to the doctor thinking i have a lung infection.
Avatar n tn Over the last year and half, I have developed a rather large fibrous mass in my right breast. About 3 inches in diameter and very rough in texture. Had a suspicious mammo (baseline identified some calcifications) on the left breast 3 years ago, entered diagnosis and treatment, and eventually, we determined to just watch the mammos as the suspicious calcification area turned out to be too difficult to locate for the wire localization biopsy.
Avatar n tn Although depression following heart surgery is so common as to be normal, I think there are still lots of doctors who (on some primitive level) still relate it to "mental illness," whatever THAT means. And remember, surgeons are surgeons partly because they LIKE an unconscious patient who doesn't ask questions that derail their concentration--like, for example, by saying anything emotional or psychological or touchy-feely.
Avatar f tn I find it not only confusing, but also extremely frustrating that a breast-reduction and lift is medically covered because it is considered a health problem (which it is I agree, it's bad for the back) but a thigh lift is not covered. I have so much excess skin on my thighs that I cannot wear shorts or a skirt in summer because the skin chafes so bad I end up with open sores on my inner thighs. I also have very bad knees that swell and ache from the weight of the skin.
