Breast Reduction, Lift and Reposition - three months post op (NEW PICS)

So this is my first review and im not sure what to...

So this is my first review and im not sure what to write but would love to share my experience with others...i had a breast reduction, lift and reposition 2 days ago due to severe back issues, neck issues and shoulder issues and a severe sag of 9cm due to the weight! At 20 years old my beasts were a size 12G and after losing 10kg they stayed the same size i decided to take some more drastic measures to correct my medical issues.

I knew i could get my surgery covered by the government if i was willing to wait on a ten mile long list and have no choice in which surgeon i would have my surgery with. I was not a fan of this option so decided to go privately, paying for the whole procedure out of pocket as i had no private health cover...i can honestly say it was the BEST decision!!! they look fantastic and i havn't had to deal with any pain! I asked the surgeon if i could go down to a c cup so i still have room to grow when my partner and i decide to have kids and we think he may have got it spot on...

i went in for day surgery on tuesday 26th March at 8am and was out within a few hours and they released me into my partners care overnight at 4pm, i went beck the following morning for a dressing change, have my drain removed and prep to go home for 2 weeks when ill fly back to get some stitches out, so far ive had small amounts of bleeding through my stitches and they have been itchy as all hell but the director of nursing said that was normal and just to take it easy :) IN the end 680gms was taken out of my left breast while 630gms was taken out of my right

Oh girlie you are looking great!!!   Your doctor did a great job and created a nice shape and size.  How are you feeling today?

Thank you, I feel absolutely fantastic...its day 5 now and no pain what so ever (completely surprised by that). thrilled with the results and cannot stop looking at the new me! only downfall are the stitches, they are itchy as anything, especially when there is a bit more warmth...Only 5 more days and they get taken out...cannot wait lol

Nice:)  So glad to hear this.  I do remember the itching and it about made me crazy.  As soon as the stitches are out, and holes closed up start the massage with either the Bio Oil or Palmer's Vitamin E Oil.

Im Now 10 days post op and could not be happier with the results....my surgeon has done a fantastic day, today i flew to the city and got my stitches and staples out, about the most painful part so far and it absolutely killed, especially at the T-junctions but afterwards it was the biggest relief i felt fantastic! im loving my new size and they are healing up beautifully, my scars are not pukkered or anything, if i rub my finger from one section to the other you cant even feel the scars, it blends perfectly! BEST PART OF TODAY THOUGH...BEING ABLE TO SHOWER AGAIN! was fantastic lol!

Final say so far....I LOVE MY NEW BOOBS!! lol
Beautiful job they look great on you, congratulations and happy healing! :)

Day 11...
Today i felt sooo bad cause my fiance had to help his mum move houses and i couldnt help as everything was too heavy for me :( poor boy has to do it all over again in 2 weeks when we move, ill be able to help a bit more then.
Ive done a lot of walking today and feel fantastic because now i can walk sooo much easier with my boobies gone :) yayyy
Although ive taken to taping up my nipples again, they are soooooo sensative that they are really painful, im kind of thankful cause i was worried about losing sensation and i definately havnt but it is driving me nuts and i cant wait until it calms down to normal again...anyone know how long that will take?
Ive t
You look great congratulations . Very happy for you!!

My nipples were super sensitive for about 6 weeks. They have calmed down now but I told my ps they should have come with a disclaimer warning. I found that if I placed the palm of my hand on them and pressed they would quiet down. Of course this is not always socially acceptable ha ha.

2 week mark today...and i brought my first real bra since the op 2 wire free sports bras just to give me a bit more support while im healing and ease the pain of rough car trips lol 14D....so much smaller and the sweeling hasnt even gone completely down yet yayyyy pretty happy so far. I think the scars are healing up nicely and i get no pain except for the occasional sharp stab through a breast (Im assuming this is the tissue working its way through the healing process)

Still absolutely in love with my new boobs, cannot...

Still absolutely in love with my new boobs, cannot get over how good of a job my surgeon has done...my scars are already starting to fade and not be noticeable. no pain, wearing a normal sports bra again(with no underwire mind you), yesterday i tried on a bikini ive never fit in the breasts, and it was perfect and my boobs looked awesome in it :) lol I cannot believe how painless this whole process has been and how fast its gone. I do get the occasional pulse of pain through my breast and feel the cold through them terribly but its all bearable and part of the healing process so all up im ok :) and totally think it was worth it
Your new girls look wonderful - congratulations!

FOUR WEEKS POST OP TODAY!!!
and feeling fantastic! almost back to normal duties and feeling no pain
Got a head cold at the moment so feel like shit, wondering if my immune system was weakened due to my body focusing on healing my breasts
i still cant get over how much smaller i am and how much freer i feel
I'm a PS Nurse (Sydney) & we never recommend to use the tape after the initial 2 weeks following surgery as it delays the healing process. The tape also causes pigmentation loss to the nipple area.

Lovely to see new pics. Your surgeon has done a wonderful job and you look fantastic. Sorry to read about your stinky head cold - hope that gets better quickly :)

You look absolutely fabulous! Now that is a very nice result :) I so agree with you on the feeling of freedom. It's so nice to be able to do things without giving any thought to whether I will end up sweating and get rashes or thrush under the boobs. This really is a wonderful surgery.

Today i got my first new underwire bra...gone from...

Today i got my first new underwire bra...gone from a 14D to a 12D (almost C) in the last 2 weeks, i think my swelling is starting to go down. i feel fantastic that i can now wear such low cut bras and not spill out like crazyyyy!!!

I did have a moment of worry today though when i pulled my tape off to change...my skin either side of my scarring peeled off with it and i had a bit of blood...ive since talked to my surgeon and he says thats perfectly normal and just to have a break from the tape for a few days and give it time to strengthen up again. Now im feeling better about that and honetly glad i dont have to worry about the tape for a few days.

While talking to my surgeon he told me to book in an appt to start getting my scars treated when i visit him next, not that i think i will need it too much but yayyy :) things are going well and i feel hopeful :)
OMG....Michelle Ive just read your storey and im in tears and cant stop...Amazing and fantastic..I have the same problem But im a single mother of 2 and just dont know how I can afford it. My mum had hers done 9 years ago with Dr Kalus and is so happy she has told me to look him up so here i am.... I would love to have a private chat with you if you wouldnt mind...my e-mail shazgardiner@hotmail.com

Three Months to the day today! and feeling fabulous

Soo when i posted a few days ago i was actually a few days short of three months but today is my three month post op anniversary and i still cant quite believe how much my life has changed! honestly my surgery was the best decision i ever made, although i was scared s***less about it. Id never had anything close to this before, no stitches, anesthetic, staples or even been cut open (not to mention needles being my BIGGEST fear). I knew it needed doing but i was still absolutely terrified...not of the surgery itself as i knew it was for the best but of the unknown....i was scared id wake up in pain, infection or unhappy with the results! Biggest shock...NO PAIN. I asked the surgeon for approx. a C cup (mainly because i plan on having kids in a few years and don't want to go back to where i started)...I'm a little bit disappointed that I've come out at a D cup but they look fantastic so I'm not too fussed :) I'm healing beautifully and my scars are fading nicely...I do get the occasional twinge through my breasts but it is nothing major and goes within a minute or two; I'm sure its just the nerves and tissue healing. The outter edges of my breasts either side of my downwards scar have been numb since my srgery but i am starting to get feeling back now so all up im so happy with my results.

Attaching some updated photos at 3 months

And thank you everyone for your support
You look great! I would love to see an updated photo. I will also be using rosehip oil and castor oil for the scars. Did you find that the rosehip oil helped?
