I had a smaller breast following mastectomy some years ago,after 2 implants,(the first one failed.)I had a little protheses for years enabling me to be symmetrical.Then got cancer the other side.Had several surgeries as had implants both sides..they kindly offered to pop a new one in.Both failed ended up with DIEP.Now have half decent boobs,however,have scar tissue in tummy...so gave to wear corsets or Spanx to keep my tummy flat.This has not been easy,but as time goes by,the problem is getting smaller,other things fill my life ...you may need to get used to the idea of being uneven,but my thought is;it is not cancer and am now fit and well.
2 years ago I had right breast therapeutic mammoplasty as part of my cancer treatment. I have excellent aesthetic result on the right hand side. 10 months ago I had symmetrising left mammoplasty procedure to match the right breast. The outcome of this cosmetic procedure left me with uneven, totally unproportioned shape. There is significant difference in shape and size. Now I wear partial shapers. Moreover there is a dip when laying down in the medial aspect of my areola. Breasts do not match each other.
The hospital responce is not acceptable: "The breast reduction undertaken on the left side was felt to be an appropriate volume match to your right breast in theatre". During the surgery I was sat up to ensure symmetry and volume match. It was obvious to me minutes after I woke up after the surgery my left breast felt much smaller than the right. I told medical staff about it straight away, they however tried to persuade me that the operation went OK.
I am so devastated now, completely lost confidence in the hospital, antidepressants do not help much. Could you Ladies suggest any good and honest plastic surgeon(s) who would be impartial without ever covering previous surgeons botched job? I do not mind travelling either within the UK or France-Belgium-Germany as long as I could find the right cosmetic surgeon.
