BR and bad recovery why?

Postby holly89 » Wed Aug 12, 2009 5:38 pm

hello! i want to have a breast reduction surgery but after seeing pictures of patients whose operation went very wrong i got worried and discouraged. why some patients who have breast reduction surgery end up with dead tissue and really awful scars? how can you prevent that? Is it the doctor's fault? If the operation goes great and the patient follows the post operation treatment correctly can still this happen? If the doctor i'm seeing is a member of the ISAPS, can i be assured that he won't do anything wrong?
Please i'm really really worried..

check your PS out.....do what they tell you to do and pray for the best. Everyone heals differently. My ps told me about all the risks...dead tissue, scars.....and I took the risk. Fortunately I am 6 days po and I have had NO complications! I have to say I had a lot of people praying for me. hope you make the right choice! good luck
