New pics 6 month update - Houston, TX

I have been thinking about having a breast lift...

I have been thinking about having a breast lift for a long time now and I finally feel like I am ready. Im 28 yrs 5'4 145 lbs, I have one child he is 11. I went to see a couple doctors this week but really didn't want the vertical scar. After looking around and reading some of the reviews on here I think Im going to go with Dr. Hordeski. I have seen a lot of people have traveled far to go to him and I am only 20 min away so Im grateful for that. He told me I would need the Mini lift so no incision at the bottom only around the areola. The only bad part was he said he wouldn't be able to reduce the size of my nipples but could come back in a couple months and have it done. Maybe once my breasts are perkier and fuller my nipples won't look as big to me.

I went on my fourth consultation yesterday with Doctor Kim and i'm even more confused! I don't know what to do! Do I go with Dr. H and avoid the vertical scar but risk not getting the results I want. My only apprehension with him is iv only found a couple pictures and i haven't been able to find anyone who's before breasts are similar to mine. I like the shape and perkiness of the normal BL but the scar turns me off. The other doctors I have talked to said I shouldn't be worrying about the scar since i'm caucasian and my scares heal pretty good. The other thing that bothers me about the typical BL is that in years to come I would most likely need another one since they may drupe again. Supposedly the way Dr H does it they are suppose to last longer since the breast tissue has been attached to the muscle. Im going to think about it some more and try and do more research.

Hello Ladies! I just got back from my second...

Hello Ladies! I just got back from my second meeting with Dr.H and my surgery date has been scheduled! I was instantly nervous the second it was booked. My date will be Aug 14th....only 11 days way OMG I'm going to freak out lol. I talked to some of the girls in the office and they were all really nice and said they loved their boobs. After I set my date I went to the surgery center and did all my blood work. All the ladies there were really nice to. I'm going to New Orleans for the red dress run the weekend before so i'm going to have to go all out and have a great time before i'm laying in bed for days. I'm so eager to get it done but then I think maybe I should of just waiting till the end of summer. I play on a sand Volleyball team and its going to suck not being able to play but I really don't want to wait.

This time tomorrow I will have new boobies! lol It...

This time tomorrow I will have new boobies! lol It really hasn't hit me yet but I know im going to be a nervous wreck tomorrow morning.

Hello ladies the new girls have finally landed......

Hello ladies the new girls have finally landed....right on my chest, at least that's what it feels like lol. They day went good all of the staff was very nice. The last thing I remember was the nurse asking me how I wanted my margarita. Lol Then I kinda remember being moved onto another table n all I could think was what if I never wake up. Thank god I did n I was all done! I felt a lot of tightness in my chest. Once the pain meds kicked in I felt better. I have been laying in bed since. My mom has been taken such good care of me, I could so get use to this :-) . I'm going to leave soon to go see the doctor. I have this cast like thing around me and I so can't wait to take it off!

Hey everyone, Its been 10 days since my surgery...

Hey everyone, Its been 10 days since my surgery and I feel great. I felt great after about the first week no pain nothing the girls are looking good I will post up some new pictures soon. They are a little bigger then I anticipated but I know its just cuz they are swollen. They have already dropped a lot! the first week I was a little nervous cuz they were so high. I did some massages and it helped them to drop a lot. I cant wait till I'm 100% healed!

Hello everyone its been 6 months since my surgery....

Hello everyone its been 6 months since my surgery. At around 3 month I had a reaction to the temp stitches...just my luck. Dr H removed the stitches n one of my areolas was a lil bigger. I was told I had to wait for 6 month to get it fixed. I finally had my revision on Friday. I'm very happy! They lifted my nipples up a little higher and reshaped them. I have to keep the tape on for 2 weeks, but I can't wait to get them off n start using scar treatment. Also I noticed after the revision there is not as much pleating around the areola n for that I'm happy.

I first found doctor Dr. Hordeski on realself and right away noticed he didn't do the vertical scar which I really didn't want!

Hey renew! I am new postin here on realself but have been lurking for months ^^ I would like to know if you have nipple sensation and if so... Is it back to normal? I would LOVE to see some new pics as i am really curious to see how well this procedure fairs 1+year after... It IS nice to know that you still like your results however :) I am a bit worried that if i decide to do the procedure i wont have anyone be able to look after me for more than just a few days :(

Hi there! Do you have any updated photos that you could share?

I was wondering what size you were before your ubl and what size you are now?? And are you pleased with your size??
  • Reply
I honestly don't know what size I was before. I always wore a 32DD because that is what I was sized into at Victoria's Secret but I knew it wasn't perfect. I am pretty close to the same size and might be a little smaller. Not sure because I am lifted so much it changes the way it looks. Now that I am trying to get a perfect fit since it is so necessary to recovery I am in a 28H (UK size) or 28J (US Size). I have always been a 28 band but I didn't know where to buy them in something other than a 28A anywhere in stores. I am happy with the size so far. I didn't want to be smaller, I would have been fine bigger but I'm kinda fond of the fake look ;-)

I see you had a revision because of a reaction to the temporary stitches but I am confused. You say this happened at 3 months and I am just at week 2 and I don't see any more stitches (I assume they absorbed).
  • Reply
Maybe my body just wasn't absorbing them. You wont really see them because they are clear but if u run your finger over the incision you might feel a little prick, but that's only if you split a stitch.
  • Reply
So the temporary stitches only need to be removed if they are not absorbing on their own? Or does he schedule a date to remove stitches either way?
  • Reply
No they are not suppose to be removed unless you split a stitch. They are suppose to be fully dissolved by 3 months ...but that doesn't always happen.

  • Reply
Hello Edith, Yes the last 4 pics were after the revision. Nipple sensation is really sensitive right now.

I have to say - I've looked at more breasts in these last couple of months than I've seen my ENTIRE life! And your girls are by far the BEST yet! They look natural, healthy and not fake or "massacred" CONGRATS!

I am considering flying in from Atlanta and getting the implants (small 200cc as well) with the Mini UBL as well. How much down time did you need post-op? I am nervous about nipple placement and creases as well. You look great btw!

Hello Peach, Down time wasnt bad. I had the surgery on a Thursday and was back to work on Monday.
