in my 40's Wanted to Keep my Breast the Same Age As the Rest of my Body.

I noticed this year that the firmness in my breast...

I noticed this year that the firmness in my breast had really started to change and I decided to be proactive and instead of waiting a few years until I might be really unhappy with them and then make a change. I researched allot and found photos of befores that looked similar to mine and then looked at the after photos and liked what I saw. I then contacted a few doctors and patients and decided where I was going to go. My doctor was booked three months out but I wanted to feel like I was using the best doctor for me considering this would be a permanant change to my body. One is lower because it has had an easier time dropping this is only 13 days out and the other breast was more work and is still sitting higher. I did talk to the doctor and this was the expectation as he feels the higher one needed more compensation with the lift due to the individual breast. He feels confident it will drop as well. Implants are under the muscle.

14 days out

Seeing changes. wondering how it all will come out. Scarring is going pretty well considering 14 days out. Seeing my doc. soon to see if it is coming along the way it should.
Congratulations! It looks like all your research paid off. You look great for only 2 weeks post op. What type and size implants did you get? What additional work was needed on the one breast? Did you only get a lift on one breast? Take it easy and keep us updated as you heal!

I got 375 cc gel implants. I had a purse string lift on one nipple and a lollipop lift on the other breast. I didn't get a chance to get before photos because I really didn't even think about it. I may ask my doctor to e-mail me them so I can post a comparison. I was about a 32 b before. with a loss of fullness uptop.

Thank you for all the great updates and photos. You look great in the swimsuit tops! I can't even see your scars in your photo. Your surgeon did a nice job. I can see progress with dropping and fluffing...very excited for you!

15 days out

15 days out waiting for the squarer one to round out!

Day 17

Day 17 doesn't look as off when looking at the bigger picture. I also noticed that when the one that isn't as far down fills out the bottom more the nipple does change to the more rounded shape of the other. The higher one is the one that I had the lollipop lift on and it is dropping at a slower rate than the other and is to be expected.

pain and assemitry

I'm still in pain and still not even so waiting to see how it goes. Each breast went through a different procedure so I'll keep you posted.

Still Hurts

Hopefully will even out soon.

20 days out

Still have allot of sensitivity. I have found a warm rice pillow really helps. Seeing the doc. Next week for a follow up.

23 days out

23 days out. Seems to be progressing. Discomfort still there but soon much better.

12 days out

This is what they looked like in my clothes 12 days out. I'm happy with the results and think they look very natural.

26 days out

If you didn't notice the doctor cut all the way around both my areola's and one has a vertical incision from the lollipop lift. Then there is another incision in the crease underneath. Everyday after my shower I put on the silicone ointment and then the scar sheets. The doctor did say he couldn't believe the scars were less than a month out. I do believe these products have helped so I am posting a photo of them.

26 days out

They are still uneven. This was part of the plan so when they settle they will be even. Doctor said to massage them and that they look great at this early stage in recovery.

scar sheets

I only try and take them off once a day to limit pulling on the breast. I also only clean them with warm water when they loose sticky power. Helps keep stuff from rubbing on incisions and helps healing. They last 4 to 7 days. Cost is about $20 per box. Generic is cheaper but stickier. I would use brand name for the first couple of weeks.

Day 28

Pain has become very manageable. Found out I went from a 32 c to a 32DDD. That was a surprise. Had lots of fun at VS today.

New bra

Got my new VS bra!
I'm getting the Natrelle also, Where did you get the cream that you use after showers? The scars really scare me a bit so once I'm allowed to start treating them I want to be all sorts of ready!

PracaSil is a silicone gel I got from a medical supply store. Drug stores offer some similar products but I do think this has worked well. I have used them together with the scar sheets. I would highly recommend the scar sheets. For one they keep the gel on your scars not on your clothes and aid healing.

Amazing results!!!!

Day 31

Love my new shape! I feel young again:-)

Day 36

Hey love, I was wondering where were you able to find the moisturizing silicone gel? I love your results and I'm looking into treating my scars similar to how you did once my tapes come off. Thank you for your help. :)

I found it at a medical supply store. They do have similar products at the drugstores if you can't find it. I haven't checked to see if you can order it on line. But I do think that in combination with the scar sheets is what is reaally making the difference.

I answered your question below but also absolutely do not tan where yourscars are that really irritates them. They can be covered by a suit or even use diaper rash cream:-)

44 days out

44 days out. One with the lollipop lift is still higher. The doctor said it could take about 6 months. I am the only one who notices. Nipples seem to be looking note alike. Still using scar gel and silicone sheets. Sheets don't look cool but who cares under your clothes and I want good long term results. Lollipop lift on one and purse string lift on the other.
Hello! I hope everything is going well. I haven't heard from you in a while... :)

Everything is going well. Just working on healing. I just want scars to be invisible. They are doing well buti can still see them in some spots. How are yours coming along?
Reply
Hey!!! I'm so glad to hear from you.. Your results are amazing. But I understand how you feel, I'm the same way. I'm thinking about starting pracasil + silicone strips today but I'm kind of nervous that my scars will get irritated since they are so young... I know you started early in the game and I keep thinking about how great they worked for you so that's a motivator.. So far they are all closed up and healing...today is my 25th day post and I have been without tapes for a week. :)

It sure doesn't get easier in your forties. I want to have a nice body into my sixties if it takes more help than just the gym and diet than so be it. Sometimes we need extra help only surgery can provide!

Thank you! I'm sure it helps that my husband is a 68 year old built like Arnold Schwarzenegger. My son's father owns an athletic club and I started going to the gym when I was 18. My first husband was very absent and I got married at 18 so the gym was something to do after work and I kinda just stuck with it. It has been a struggle with working and trying to be super mom. I have a 14 year old that I am there for all the time and I hate time away from him. He is old enough now that I am getting him to go to gym with me. My husband works in Kentucky so he is only home in Mt every other weekend. It's so worth to keep it up. When you try your best even when sluff off a little your body comes back faster because of muscle memory. Good luck on your journey you look like a beautiful lady! Children are wonderful and well worth the toll they take on our bodies. Thank goodness there is surgery for the things we can't fix ourselves if we choose it; -)

Both my husband and I have not found the motivation to exercise :( he was recently diagnosed w diabetes so we know it's a must to incorporate into our lives. We don't have an excuse to be lazy. Keep it up girl! You look fabulous!! You inspire me:)

I have had many questions went back in and resized because I was unsure and they have had continual patients with me and I have had little pain and am very pleased with the way the healing is progressing. I have noticed quite a change in just the last day.
