I did have my op on 9/11. Reduction and uplift on 'good' side and reshapy /uplift on BC side.
I am amazed I did not expect the original scar to go and for that side to look so good.
OK only 10 days on. Had dressings removed after 6 days and have to go back to specialist PS nurse again next Tues she is to assess whether I need stitches removed from 'lollipop' scar.Curve under boob has dissolvable sutures.
Getting a bit stir crazy doing nothing but as there is thick snow on the ground I am fairly housebound anyway.
Thanks for your replies this really helped Margaret thanks for your PMs
and Anne hope all goes well with your recovery J xxx
So far it looks like I am still on for my op on 9th.Have to go for more blood tests part of the pre - op stuff in the morning. Finally the PS breast care nurse did get back to me no need to take a bra in for coming home in So far so good
Hi Margaret and Ann Thank you so much for your positive replies it really helps as I know of no one having/had this op. Although of course I did not go into it lightly.It is so very encouraging that you are very pleased with the results Margaret. I will PM you
Good luck with your recovery Ann and hope your recovery continues well J xx
Hi Libby I am 3weeks postop I hade WLW with therapeutic mammoplasty on right breast. I have a blood condition and in case of complications the surgeon suggested waiting till after Reds to have the left breast reduced, I have an appointment in June, so I think could be some time before I am symmetrical again, now already what you mean about clothes and bras the sooner the better for me let me know how you get on ANN.G XX
I had BC in 1991, treated with lumpectomy and radiotherapy. By 2007, I was very asymmetrical and my good side was more than twice the size of the BC side. In 2008, I had a reduction on the "good" side and uplift on the other. I was offered an implant, but preferred this option as I felt the smaller breast was more in proportion with the rest of my body.
The results were excellent, and I was more comfortable than I expected, although I can't say there was no pain. Although there is quite a lot of scarring, this fades over time. For the first time in years, I was happy with my body and able to wear the sort of clothes I would have liked to have worn had I felt more confident (little strappy vest tops, summer dresses, clothes with a clevage).
You won't regret having this done. Please feel free to PM me if you have any questions.
After 2 x WLE ( quadranectomy) lumps 4.2 cms,and nodes too,with chemo first and rads after, I was left with a Rt breast much smaller than the Lt But I did not have a Mx. My lovely lovely surgeon always said I was up for mammoplasty that is until I needed 2nd WLE and more tissue was obviously required to be removed. Now he has retired.2011
So I got on with my life 2012
But then I decided I would like some symmetry and being able to wear bras/clothes that fit and be able to swim again in a cozzie that fits.I was referred to a PS at the breast clinic he has a brill CV/reputation He has offered to do an uplift and reduction on my 'good' side and an uplift and reshapy thing on my BC side.
I waited for 5 mnths then found I wasn't even on the waiting list a 'blip' Now after much toing and froing looks like I am on for 9th Jan. I will not need implants and know of no-one needing this op
Has anyone got any info please ?
