So I am scheduled to have my MM on Nov. 28th. I am having a tummy tuck with some lipo, and a breast lift with augmentation as well. I am super excited, but pretty nervous too!!

It's strange how every surgeon is different. I have instructions to massage breast at least four times a day, three different ways. No underwire, in fact two surgeons say underwire bras cause droopy boobs, I was able to stop using the boob strap early it rode funny on mr, so he said just massage as much as possible to prevent the capisular ? And to encourage them to settle, can't wait for that, they look kind of funny so high

It is strange - my ps said I can massage them once a day for 5 minutes each side. He said that there are no studies that proves it prevents encapsularization!

Had my lift with implants nov 4 was told to start massage the next day and to not take underwire bra off for 2 months. Boobs are soft have dropped and settled pretty well. And sometimes i cheat and wear prettier bras =)

Hi , just found this forum. I had my mm on november 23rd. I am still sore and wearing a huge bra and binder, so it is hard to see any results.
I didn't have any breast massage instructions, what should I be doing?. I had an over the muscle augmentation. PS thinks that was ok for me as I didn't have too much sagging just loss of volume so he put in a small implant fill them out again. I think I will be a DD when all is finished or a big D. I was a C cup. Wish that I could get out of this binder it is one of those that goes from boobs to my knees, I feel like one of the women in victorian England.

Check w/your ps. I had a lift with over muscle augmentation. I had mine on 11/17. I am not doing any massages yet because my breasts are still fairly swollen. I am still in my binder (really don't like being out of it) and wearing a sports bra but sleep without the bra but wearing the binder. I return to work next Thursday and I will probably continue to wear the binder for a while.

Hi everyone! I went in Nov 4 for MM today is day 3 post op and I actually feel human again. First day was very rough for me -i was very sick from the pain meds so i gave them up and have been ok on just tylenol since. Husband has been a godsend-dont think he knew how much he was really going to have to do-hard to say "wipe me" lol but he has done it all! Today i showered and got to see it all unwrapped and considering all I had done I only have bruising around my belly button. Drains to come out on Thursday. Do all stitches need to be removed or do some dissolve like c-sect stitches? Somethings are still freaking me out- the daily boob massage is painful but seems to help. Im worrried about the drain removal as well but I guess i just have to keep looking forward! Good luck!

I kinda feel the same way sassymomma! I can't believe november is almost here. So did you have your pre-op already? How did it go, if so?

I had one yesterday and it went great. We decided on my implant sizes and went over the TT incision placement. Now all I have to do is decide how implants will be placed.

We are going to Knott's Berry Farm for one day and then back that night for their "fright night". Then we are going to Disney for 2 days and coming back on Halloween night. My oldest dd (28 yo) and her daughter (6 yo) will join us for Disney. The Knott's fright night will be too intense for the 6 yo. Should be fun!
