Waiting to get a breast lift with small implant...

Waiting to get a breast lift with small implant...

Postby brazengrrl » Thu Nov 29, 2012 1:29 pm

I am cross posting this from the tummy tuck board hoping to get as many responses as possible
Hi there, I had a TT with MR and lipo on 2/28/2012. I had my drain in for 5 long weeks. My scar is beautiful, almost unnoticeable except where the drain was. About 6 months ago I went for my appt and grabbed my "pouch" and asked the dr "what is this??" He told me to wait until I was 8 months and make sure it wasn't swelling. Well at my appt 3 weekss ago he told me it looks like the ligaments aren't sticking to my pelvic bone. ( I am a big girl who lost 100 lbs after gastric bypass I'm 196-198 lbs. I was 207 before the TT). My results are truly amazing compared to what I had. And if insurance covered this procedure I think I would be happy with it but I look like a thick girl who could use a TT, and for almost $10,000 when all was said and done i imagined better results. When I lay down its very flat and tight but standing up is another story. He is going to lipo the area and reopen the incision some and pull it tighter I was told if I needed a revision I would have to pay for the anestiaologist but if I had another procedure he would fix me while I was under. (After some miscommunication this is what was agreed to). So I am waiting for the updated proposal to come in writing so I can set a date.
I am getting a breast lift with a small implant. My breasts have always been saggy from when I was young and I have a lot of fat under my arms (at the bra strap) that I want gone.
I was hoping he could take that fat and put it in my breasts instead of an implant but he said I wouldn't be happy with it. I'm 42, I'm very active, we jetski and scuba dive and are always on the go, I definitely don't want larger breasts, just perkier fuller ones.

I would love to hear from you guys that had had a lift with or without implants and get your opinions of your results.

There is also a moral to this story...
Think about what procedures you might want and try and do them together, I'm kicking myself in the ass I didn't do this when I had my TT

I had a lift with my TT and small implants. I'm very pleased.

I did not get implants but I did get the breast lift and up until today it is the best thing I've done for myself. The scars have improved a lot. I would do it again in a heartbeat although recovery was a bit tough with the scars.
