Question about breast surgery


17 posts in this topic

Hey!

So I am not at goal yet but when I get there I really want to get a breast life and augmentation to refill me breasts. My mom is very against it because she knows several people who got augmentations who are in pain all the time. They had it done after cancer though.

Has anyone gotten it done and experienced pain nonstop after? I understand it will be painful right after, but this is long term pain she is talking about.

I don't know about a Breast Lift - But I had a Breast Reduction and I had very little pain at all (Had it at same time as Brachioplasty and that did not hurt much either)

I guess all people are different. And I know people who have cancer surgeries may well have alot more of the Breast removed that just the fatty part. I also guess that some surgeons do things differently to others and some people feel pain more than others (I am a BIG wimp with pain) I have never heard of anyone in constant pain after a Breast augmentation.

Hopefully someone here may have some more information for you - My Mum was very worried about me when I had my surgeries - All Mothers worry - But she knew and understood why I needed to do this and she stood by me the whole way through and helped me so much... Maybe if you tell your Mom how you feel and how this affects your life and your view of yourself.. Maybe she will understand - But being your Mom - She will always worry about you even if she understands your reasons for doing it.....

Good Luck

@Scamp Thank you, yeah I tried to explain how my breast are completely flat when not in a bra and I am only 30 years old and I feel disgusting and that it's my body and I want to feel good about it. She backed off a little but not completely. I was hoping to get some positive feedback I could show her so she could feel better about it. :)

Realizing that I will most likely "need" several plastic surgeries after my wls surgery makes me really nervous. My family doesn't want me having any surgery, much less a series of surgeries...but my hope is to just plunge ahead and hope they come around once they see how well I'm doing...

@hardwork&dedication It is nerve wracking to me as well. I have having the extra skin on my stomach removed on June 5th even though I am not at goal yet. It is very large already and giving me issues so insurance is covering it, I will have to pay for my revision when I get to goal out of pocket though. I also will want a thigh lift and as mentions a breast lift. I may or may not want my arms done too. They don't bother me as much as my thighs and breasts. My surgeon said he does not recommend the thigh surgery though and quotes a 90% complication rate. :(

I just had a breast lift & reduction on Tuesday. I'm sore at the drain sites, but other than that, I'm feeling pretty good!IMG_2589.JPGIMG_2590.JPG

I too had a breast lift and reduction, no implants and I couldn't be happier!!! As my surgeon said...."we have enough material to work with!" They are fabulous and very natural looking and I highly recommend you consider that instead of implants.

If I have enough material I will do that. My breasts are completely flat though when not in a bra, they just hang there deflated.
