Breast Reduction - Brooklyn, NY

Well I'm young gal who attends college with no children. I weigh about 135 and my bra size was a 34 DD . So my shoulder issue was unbearable , even doing physical activities such as running on a treadmill or jumping jack. The weight on my chest was very due to my breast that were very over sized for my body. Also adding as I'm getting older my breast started to sag and made the situation a bit worse.

Its been 2 weeks since my operation and the second day I saw them I was SO happy to see them up perky and a reasonable size. But now after the Dr. removing the white stickers that were over my stitches I have noticed I what they call " wound separation" .

Its scary to see this and Im concerned if it would get better or worse. I have looked up information about it and didn't get much on it. All I know its a wound without pain but does leak a little yellow liquid. Overall I'm completely relieved with the procedure and at last I have breast that fit me and I can be fine with.

I feel very inpatient about these wound...

I feel very inpatient about these wound separations, I wished I could speak to someone who had the same issue to better help me in this situation. My PS does say its normal , but they are so ugly looking and gross. I fear my results will not be what I am looking forward to! Monday I have an appointment to see the PS and hopefully everything will go well !

Hi everyone I saw my PS yesterday, no worries or concerns the wounds seem to be healing well , slowly but shortly! I see the difference myself . I forgot to ask a few questions , I'm curious to know how much was taken out of my breast and its been a month and a few days since the surgery and forgot to ask when I can start wearing regular bras?... Other than that everything is going well swelling on my right breast (the bigger one) seems to be going down as well. I'm so excited to see the final product . Its such an amazing feeling have this relief :)

Hi everyone . Sorry I haven't been on , just some recent updates on my breast reduction. I think I permanently have lost sensation on one of the nipples. Other than that no complaints with the healing just one breast is slightly bigger than the other. The scars seem to be improving slowly but shortly.

It been 5 months now & I'm still some what...

It been 5 months now & I'm still some what concerned about one of my breast as it is still slightly bigger then the other. i would think by now it shouldn't be swollen. Also I would like to know if theres any good cream to use for the scarring? any suggestions would be very useful .thank you !

I haven't been on here lately but I was wondering...

I haven't been on here lately but I was wondering if anyone can suggest any good remedies for the scars ? also wanted to know if it was normal for one breast to be larger than the other???
