I havent come across the word lipofilling, and I don't think he said that word as such, but i imagine it'll be similar .
I am conscious of it when I wear a tshirt as it can sometimes show above my bra, and it has always been sore to the touch even after all these years, so maybe if i get it padded out a bit there'll be less tenderness on the chest wall.
I'm still 50/50. I've got to see the surgeon with my answer on Friday, and I'll ask him some more questions. I don't feel pressured, just intrigued that this has been offered to me,
I'll keep you posted.
love. T xx
Hi @trudy2010 - Was he talking about Lipofilling? From what I've read and hear is quite a minor procedure, but can be very effective for filling dimples in boobs. As you've forgotten, could you perhaps call him for a reminder chat, or your BCN?
Hope all goes well with and for your lumpectomy, lovey. X❤️X
I have a dent from my lumpectomy it doesn’t really bother me , if your scarring / dent doesn’t really cause you discomfort or bother you cosmetically I would be questioning the need for a second op too . Don’t be pressured into something you don’t really want .x
My surgeon wants to improve the scarring and cavity that is on my left breast from a lumpectomy 11 years ago. He wants to do this while doing a lumpectomy of my right breast for a new cancer. Surgery is planned for the end of march, and initially I thought yes, okay, but now I am having doubts.
I've had this scarring and crater-like dimple for a long time, I never expected any correction for it, and now I'm thinking, what if it becomes worse, what if I get seroma or infection in it, I'll wish I'd left it well alone.
If I go ahead, I'll have 2 sore boobs instead of one.
He told me how he would do it, and said it was only a ' little op' but I've already forgotten what he said, and to me, it's a massive op!
If anyone has any experience of cosmetic repair from previous breast surgery, please share your thoughts.
