My surgeon has suggested that I get a boob lift and implants. I not sure if I should get the implants. What is everyone opinion on this?

I met with the ps two weeks ago. I'm waiting to hear if insurance will cover mine. I lost 87lbs and went from a 36j/k to a 32HH - so smaller to be sure but I'm still all boobs. [emoji30]

It depends what outcome you want. What size are you now, what size do you want to be?

Kate - how do you compare surgeries from a pain and recovery perspective?

Both have been fine. I have some necrosis but the hospital have been great and are dealing with it at the moment. I had quite a lot done at once, that and my age meant that I didn't bounch back as easy as if I were in my 20's.

All the surgeons seem to think I would only be happy with implants I did not want the hassle or the expense of having to replace them every 6 to 10 years. Mine have been reconstructed I went from an F to a B or C cup. Find a PS that listens to you.

This is what I'm afraid of, still being big after a loss. I am a 40H (although I'm sure I could go higher since my bras are a bit snug now). I'd love to be a C or D. Had enough of ginormous boobs.

Same here. Once I met with the surgeon I am so ready to just do this. Ideally I'd be finished and recovery by the first part of April. My insurance usually takes about three weeks for approval. I sure hope I can get it done.

I was told that if you're happy with the size you are when wearing a bra (boobs all propped up) then you only need a lift (they rearrange your own tissue), if you think they are too small in a bra... then you need implants.


My time is NOW!

How long after you reach goal do you have to wait to get your boobs done? I'm currently a 42i and cannot wait to have these puppies done. Some plastic surgeons did a presentation about post-WLS procedures at a support group and they said something about patients having to stabilize at goal for a while (a year? I can't recall what they said). It seemed like you first needed to prove that you wouldn't gain the weight back :(

      Hi I  am new here and I am going to have the gastric sleeve next month. I have to pay out of pocket so it is going quite quickly. The longer I wait the more bad stories I hear. I weigh 315 and 61 years old so I have a lot to lose. Any advice is welcome

      Went to my initial consult with the Bariatric surgeon/ program I chose. Came home with a folder full of information & helpful organization of all the testing that needs to be completed while I complete the required nutritional counseling. She also let me know my insurance typically takes 6 weeks to reply with authorization when submitted, so that puts my potential surgery date near the new year if all stays on track  I felt comfortable with her, in our discussions she agrees that I am a good candidate for the Gastric Bypass. I appreciated the 'introduction' class that was given after the consult with the surgeon where I was given this binder of every referral (from her, not my pcp referrals), & contact information for all the testing needed to make my contacts/calls tomorrow morning even easier I start my nutrition classes on June 5th, so that's when the clock will start toward insurance approval & getting the tool to help me reach my goals

        welcome welcome - 23 lbs pre/post op is great. you are doing fine. keep up the good work. kathy

      Day 5 post-op... didn't sleep great last night, lots of gas pain and it was my first night without using the rx pain meds. I'm tired and feeling rather stupid. My nurse is supposed to call today for a check in, so I'm debating taking a nap now and risk missing her call, or forcing myself to stay awake and pray she calls soon. Also, showering should be considered a workout... just doing the basics used up all my energy. Weight is slowly working its way down. I know that I shouldn't be on the scale yet, but I couldn't resist. I'm down almost 9lb down since surgery. Yay!

        You are allowed to feel tired, take naps and only do the minimum this soon after the surgery. Listen to your body and be good to yourself at this time. Most important things to care about at this time is hydration and protein. It is a full-time job to stay on top of that and prioritize your energy there for now. Just give your body the time to heal and adjust, don’t rush the recovery.
