I lost sixty five pounds and after I had my abdomnoplasty, I lost ten more, all of which seemed to come from my breasts. I had always been well endowed, a 42 C, and now I was left lopsided and droopy, a very sad 36-38 C. Sad really. I had dysmorphia in addition to my body contortions and changes. I knew that I could never live with this. My breasts had stretch marks and even after four pregnancies I'd never had even one stretch mark so this did not set well. I was self conscious, never wanted the lights on when I was with my husband. Fortuantely I went in and the doctor concurred with my own thoughts. My breasts had dropped and I had lopsidded ones to boot. He concerned me when he spoke of moving my nipples, actually cutting them off and moving them up. That kinda freaked me out. I'd read things about losing sensations and such, but after the fact it was the exact opposite. I feel more than I felt before. The wait from the time of deciding, the appointment and the operation seemed interminable but I believe it was like two to three months. I was sure of what I wanted and I just wanted it done.
I was severely self conscious. My boobs were constantly falling out of my bra, slipping up and over the slits between the breasts, which served to make me even more self conscious. I went with a saline implant and a DD since I had been large before. After the surgery it felt like a walk in the park compared to the abdomnoplasty. I had no problems and I just had to adjust to different thinking. I wasn't a 42 C and probably won't be again. The weight loss decided that for me. I had no bad backlash to the surgery and life soon became normal to me again. It took awhile to adjust to the new boobs. Their weight seemed odd when I leaned over, not painful, but odd. I've had my first mamogram since then and I was scared of that too, afraid they'd bust on me. No one wants to put that kind of money into something and just 'lose it' over night. However it seemed I worried over nothing. They told me since I opted to have the implants put under my muscle wall it made it easier for them to do the mamogram. I am more than well pleased. I'm totally delighted.
It has been two years but without my pics shown it...

Payment processing is either cash or Care Credit. Some people are very limited on this matter so I see it as self limiting. The time would be good for someone that wasn't sure but the wait for someone that is sure was longer than I expected. The doctor himself answered all my questions in full, encouraged my husband to ask questions and to be involved, he saw me a few times afterwards but there simply were no complications. For me, it was a walk in the park.
