Breast Reduc and Lift Question

Recommended Posts

So....question- I am 4 yrs post op. I have always had very large 'assets' and because my mom never helped me get fitted for the right bra at the age of 10-11 when they most needed it, I've always had a serious droop (like totally southward).

Now that I'm almost to my ultimate goal, i'm looking sad and deflated, albeit still small C size.

I would love to have a serious reduction and lift, essentially to get to a small B. I know, most women would want a lift with implant, but I prefer a smaller size.

Any ideas how this will be an option, and anyone here had something similar?

My hairdresser just had this done less than a month ago. She is about a large B/small C now and is happy with that. Her surgeon said she had enough breast tissue so she did not need implants. She did lose a lot of weight previously and had breastfed all 3 of her daughters.

You might be surprised to find a lift is all you need... they excise extra skin in a keyhole shape and that will reduce your cup size quite a bit all by itself. I had a lift with implants and would up the exact same bra size bc the implants made up for the removed skin (that I’d been “rolling up” and tucking into my bra!

I had a reduction and uplift - I am more happy than I ever was as I was a G cup in beginning then went down to deflated E cup and looked dreadful - I wanted the smallest I could get - He said he could do a C - But I think now I am a B 1/2 or small C - I am very happy that I did it - Even though it has been 8 years now and they are slightly deflated (age/ and a lil bit weight loss after the op)

I would do it again 1000 times over - As I love having small boobs :-) And I - Like you - Did not want implants.....

I attach two pics for you - Before....

And a week after the op.....

Good luck - I hope whatever you choose to do that you are as happy as I am with your results :-)

      Getting a little nervous about post surgery life adaptation. I really want to succeed, but habits are so hard to break.

      Good news and Meh news...
      Meh: so I think I experienced/am experiencing my first stall-ish since surgery and now I get how frustrating it can be!  So annoying to wake up every morning to watch the scale report a gain or loss of the same 1.5 pounds for over 2 weeks.  *sigh*.  Some say put the scale away, but I log my weight every morning to get a daily moving average of my weight.  So long as this moving average is not heading upwards (which it isn’t and hasn’t since post-op) then I am good with my curent “minimalist” weekly weight loss rate, however small I think it is 🙄.
      The Good news:
      To allow for some self back patting, and to remind myself of the bigger picture, I set a bunch of interim goals/milestones... a few of which are 10lbs increment weight loss goals:
      So this morning, after hovering within 1.5 pounds of an interim goal for over 2 weeks, I weighed in at 164.8, and officially lost 70 lbs!  In 4 months.  That is 30% of my starting body weight.  Or the equivalent of my 10 year old neice. How crazy is that.
      Next Goal: weigh in at 162lbs to be merely overweight (and not obese!)

      I am in the Pre-Op stage.  I have 4 more nutrition classes to go to.  I've had my endoscopy with favorable results although I was told I had an abnormal z-line.  Everything looks good so far.  Had my team appointment with the psychologist and have my pulmonologist  this week.  I chose the sleeve
