Week 3 - Complication?

By the time I was 16 I was a DD. I remember...

By the time I was 16 I was a DD. I remember massaging my breasts at night because I'd read about tribeswomen in a National Geographic magazine who did so to make their breasts long and tubular. I thought that if mine were saggy at least I could disguise them better. Now I'm a 32E and, at 5'9" and 135lbs, losing weight doesn't improve the boob situation. People tell me I don't "seem like a big-boobed girl" but I can tell. I hunch. I perpetually have ribs out of place on my chest and see a chiropractor regularly.. and most of all, I'm just uncomfortable in my own skin. I look at my chest and I don't feel like it should be mine. It belongs in Playboy - these enormous, ridiculous tits. I want to wear spaghetti straps and not look like a porn star.

I've consulted with three plastic surgeons over the past 8 years. The first told me it wouldn't be covered by insurance because it wasn't medically necessary (this was before I developed the chronic back issues). The second was at a teaching hospital and I got an entire class of college students ogling my chest. I never went back. The third actually seemed ok. He was friendly and so was his nurse, but my recommendation came from a friend who'd had a nose job, so I was leery. I mean, he might no his way around a face, but can he deal with nipples?

I haven't seriously considered it in a couple years, but I'm back around again and here's my question... am I crazy? Is it worth it? When I broach this question with most girls (not that I talk about it much... but when I do...) I feel guilty because most of them think I'm being ungrateful for a wonderful gift... but they feel like such a burden to me. I feel like they're completely disproportionate to my frame - aesthetically and structurally. You can see the pictures- I'm puttin' myself out here. What do you think? Is it in my head?

But then, if I really am a good candidate for a reduction, I admit: I'm terrified. I'm afraid of huge scars and losing sensation in my nipples. In fact, I keep picturing my nipples, cold and severed, on a tray next to the operating table, and that could be the single most limiting factor to pursuing it any further.

So, in conclusion, I don't know what I'm looking for here...except some objective opinions on the tatas themselves and some insight from women who've done it. I've looked at the photos and read the blogs, but tell me... how was the long term recovery? A year later, how are the scars? How did you choose your surgeon? Can you feel your nipples? (this one is important to me)

Thank you ladies. I'm immensely appreciative for all of you who have been so forthcoming and vulnerable. It can be difficult to get straight answers. I'm happy to have a place to ask them.

Went to see a PS today and SHE. WAS. AWESOME. I spent more than 2 hours in her office- most of the time with her. The good news is that I feel 100% certain I've found the right person. After talking to two others, she is the first that made me excited about the procedure- and confident that we have the same vision for what I want to look like afterward. The bad news is that, while my right breast is firmly in the range that insurance would cover for my height and weight, the amount she would need to take out of the left is significantly less... almost 100g difference. So we're seeing if insurance will cover the right side, and I'd cover the left. Otherwise, I'm considering doing the whole $5,000 out of pocket. I mean, I spent more on my car... and I don't get to keep that forever! New boobies are a much better investment, right?

Ok...I need some input... I called today to...

Ok...I need some input... I called today to schedule the procedure and they gave me a date that's about a week and a half away and I thought I was going to faint. I'm not taking it- I think I need more time to prepare myself-but here's my question: is it normal to want the surgery, but also feel ABSOLUTELY TERRIFIED? I know I want smaller breasts- I'm done with all the pain and discomfort, but I'm scared of all the "what if's" about surgery: what if I'm too big? What if I'm too small? What if I have complications? And then there's all the other questions - how bad will my recovery be? How bad will the pain be? Is there anything I can do beforehand to make my recovery easier? How long will it be before I can look at my scars and not feel nauseous?

I think I'm fully freaking out at this point. Is that normal, or does it mean I'm not ready?

OMG OMG OMG OMG... I just called and scheduled it....

OMG OMG OMG OMG... I just called and scheduled it. October 30th. I feel like I'm about to jump out of an airplane.

Ok, this is completely stupid, but I just thought of it... if I can't lift up my arms, I can't blow-dry my hair! Told you it sounds stupid, but I have short hair and it looks soooooooooo bad if I don't blow-dry and straighten it. How long will I have to walk around with dumb hair? (ie. how long before I can wash and blow-dry my own hair?

Hey ladies, I have to call on Monday to make the down-payment... that's my NO TURNING BACK point... so I've been researching my doctor obsessively. As I said before, I chose her because I thought her work was beautiful- really nice scarring, symmetry and shape, and I felt so comfortable with her during my consult. She was incredibly attentive and spent so much time making sure I was comfortable. But here's the thing- I haven't been able to find any reviews about her online, except one person who gave her a low rating because they had complications and felt her post-care wasn't good. Now I'm sort of shaken- how much stock do I put in one review? How much info did you find on your doctors before your surgery?

Hey there, I keep thinking of questions! I know...

Hey there, I keep thinking of questions! I know what my PS has said, but I guess I'm wondering what's normal... Two questions: Where did you have your surgery? Office, outpatient center, hospital? Did you stay overnight? Did you go home with drains or did they take them out before you left?

My PS will do the surgery in a surgery center, but I'll stay the night, then I have been told they will remove the drains before I leave the next day. Normal?

I want to shut my brain off, but the closer my date gets, the more I feel like I'm in an all-out panic. Here's what it is today: I've noticed that most of you have had pre-op tests... bloodwork, EKG, etc. My PS hasn't ordered any of that for me because, as she says, I seem young and healthy. My freak-out is this: three years ago my leg was swelling up, so I went to a doctor and he told me it was fine and sent me home without tests because I seem "young and healthy." The problem didn't go away, so I did my own research, insisted on a test and, sure enough, I had a blood clot in my leg. I was on blood thinners for a year. I guess I just get nervous now when doctors make assumptions based on how I look- especially if it could mean complications during surgery. Am I overthinking this? Over-reacting? My surgery is next Tuesday, is it even too late at this point to have tests? My heart is fine- that one I'm sure of. I had to have heart tests during my blood clot debacle, so I've heard within the last couple years that my ticker is fine...

I got a private message from someone tonight who said that I was having "disassociation" with my breasts, that I would regret a breast reduction, hate the outcome, and should NOT have the procedure. She said to just "embrace" my natural beauty...among other things...

Ok, so that is SO weird (not to mention wildly insulting to suggest that I'm getting a reduction just to feel pretty) and I'm sort of wondering if this is a random spammer or something. They have no history on the site and just joined today. I sort of hope I'm not the only one who got this message... but, then again, I hope no one else is upset as I am to get such a creepy note from a stranger...

Ok, Tuesday is the day! I'm excited and incredibly nervous all at once. Thoughts, prayers appreciated!

Well, it's done. Full disclosure, I am completely grumpy. Yesterday was sort of terrible. Everything started really well. I wasn't nervous going in and woke up well, minimal pain and the nursing staff was wonderful. Within a few hours, though, I developed a massive hematoma on my right breast, so at 9:00 last night I had to go back into surgery (12 hours after the first) to get opened up again and remove the bleeding. The second procedure took almost as long as the first because it took them more than a half hour to intubate me. When I woke in the recovery room I was so cold and in so much pain I thought my teeth were going to fall out from chattering, and the nurses were SO unresponsive. They weren't any better in my room- even though there were two of them, the only reason I was able to go to the bathroom was because my husband helped me sit up and steadied me while I walked- while they just stood and did nothing. They didn't even plug my IV in when I returned- again, my husband had to do it. Despite the EXTREME pain and dryness from my touch intubation, they wouldn't let me have any water until I ate a cup of ice chips (I didn't have any nausea) and then when I did ask for water, repeatedly, it took them almost 45 minutess to get it to me. Worst hospital experience ever. Hopefully no more complications so I can get the hell out of here and never come back.

Home now, which is great. I'll post pics soon. I think it's funny that, despite the fact that my chest was cut open twice, it's my throat that hurts the most! ha... sort of ironic. Did anyone else have a tough time with intubation? And SWELLING- jeesh, I had no idea I'd have so much swelling in my face and arms and legs. Also, did anyone else get migraines from the Percoset? I swear, the boobs aren't bad- it's just everything else that's killing me right now ;) Oh, and I can't feel my nipples yet. Thoughts on that?

Well, it's day 4 and I'm just now beginning to feel how I expected I would feel during recovery. Things were a little tougher for the first few days because of the extra surgery, but my PS said that was to be expected. At this point I can get around pretty well, just tired and still find myself getting dizzy and weak at times. On the upside, I LOVE the new girls. I'll post a picture soon. One's still incredibly bruised from the hematoma, but I really like the size and shape :) I'm wondering what your Post-op experiences have been like? What was challenging? What was helpful? What kind of instructions did you get from your PS (I got about 20 pages of info, but I've found it really difficult to navigate)...

Went to class for the first time today (I'm a full time student). Can't believe how tiring everything is! And how out of breath I get all the time. Doc says it's normal, especially considering the amount of blood I lost, so I'm not worrying too much. I feel like I'm calling my Dr's office all the time to ask questions. The post-op instructions they gave me are just so long and confusing. I thought I was a pretty smart person 'till I had to muddle through Dr's office paperwork...ha. Is that just me? I just think there's got to be a better way to administer post-op instructions... did anyone else have a hard time with that?

Today marks exactly two weeks since my surgery. Healing is going a little more slowly than I expected, especially on the right side - but I expected that since I had to be opened up twice there. My steri strips are just not giving up the ghost! I know I should be glad to have them as long as possible, but they're itchy and drive me nuts. I can't wait for them to come off. As I'm healing, I'm noticing some asymmetry with my nipples. The right one is a little more oblong than the left. But, again, I guess I expected some problems from having the second surgery and, at the end of the day, I'm just happy that I ended up with exactly the size and shape I hoped for. I LOVE the way my clothing looks on me now. It's like I got a whole new wardrobe! I had a white sweater with navy stripes in the back of my closet that I loved, but never wore because it looked silly on my big chest, and now it looks GREAT. People keep asking if I've lost weight.. I guess I did, but not the way they think! I'm so so so happy I did this. I'll be really interested to see how my back problems do. It's hard to tell a big difference since I still have to wear the very restrictive surgical bra. I'm looking forward to the lightness of the flimsy little bras when I'm finally healed up!

It's week three and I'm so happy with how my healing is going. I saw my PS late last week and she removed the rest of my steri strips as well as some of the hard scabs on my incisions. The right side is still healing a little slower-the T-scar is still open on that side and I'm still numb around the top of my nipple, but I really couldn't be happier. Wish I'd done this years ago!

I could not be happier with my experience with Dr....

I could not be happier with my experience with Dr. Kelley. From the first consult I knew she was different than other surgeons (I consulted with three before her). First, her staff was wonderful and made me very comfortable. No one seemed rushed or impatient. When Dr. Kelley came into the room she was the same way- kind, patient and attentive. She answered all my questions and the appointment didn't end until I felt completely comfortable. When the surgery came around, she was really good about keeping my husband informed, too. I had a complication with my surgery, which I don't believe is a reflection on Dr. Kelley's skill (her record is fantastic); complications can occur with any surgery- but I am SO pleased with how she handled it. She addressed the issue right away and went above and beyond in my post-op care to make sure the rest of my healing went smoothly. My results are WAY above my highest hopes or expectations. Dr. Kelley really listened to me pre-op and gave me exactly the size I hoped for. And she is more than a surgeon- she is an artist. I've looked at a lot of before-and-after shots of breast reductions and results like Dr. Kelley's are rare- the symmetry, the shape and the scarring are incredible. I have seen her several times since my surgery and I thank her every time and have to hold back tears- I'm just SO happy with my results. If you are considering breast surgery in the Indianapolis area, please consider Dr. Kelley. I didn't find very much information about her before my surgery- she doesn't market herself very much- but I'm so happy I went with my gut and chose her. She is kind, compassionate and so talented and dedicated to what she does. Five stars!

Hey ladies! Question for you all: My healing has been going really well, and then the other day I started having yellow discharge from my right breast below the nipple and at the T-scar, which still isn't closed. I know some of this is normal, but I'm wondering, if any of you had this, how long did it last? I'm going on four days and I'm not terribly worried, it's just gross and I want it to go away...

On that icky note, happy Thanksgiving! ;) Hope you all enjoy your turkey day.
Indianapolis Plastic Surgeon

I am so glad I found Dr. Kelley. I've been considering a breast reduction for almost 10 years and have consulted with many other surgeons around Indianapolis, but never found one I was as comfortable with. Right off the bat, she took more time with me than any other surgeon- almost two hours in her office for the initial consult! She was very patient, kind and thorough in answering all my questions. In the end, my insurance wouldn't cover the procedure, but I liked her so much I went for it out of pocket. Since her initial consults are so long, she doesn't typically do a pre-op appointment, but she took the time to see me a couple weeks before my surgery to answer my last-minute questions. On the day of surgery she was wonderful, too. She was very good about giving my husband information and taking the time to answer all of his questions. She takes a little longer with the surgery than other plastic surgeons, but I really appreciate that because her results are beautiful. Of all the surgeons I looked at, her work was the most symmetrical, with great shape and size. My results are amazing- it's only 1 week out, but I am thrilled with the size and shape- she really listened and gave me more than I hoped for. But here's the biggest reason I would recommend her: in surgery, there's always a chance of complications, no matter how great or experienced the surgeon, and I think it's very telling how a surgeon responds when a patient has issues. I happened to be one of those people who had a complication. A couple hours after my surgery I developed a hematoma in my right breast. Dr. Kelley's record in this area is stellar- the last time she had a patient with a hematoma was four years ago- that's excellent for someone who performs breast surgeries as often as she does, but I was just unlucky. Here's the thing, though, within 15 minutes of the nursing staff calling and reporting my symptoms (they hadn't even unwrapped me to check out the whole situation) Dr. Kelley returned to the surgery center to check me out- and then scheduled me for surgery THAT NIGHT to correct the problem. I've read other cases where women have gone for days with hematomas, and I certainly wouldn't have blamed her if she wanted to wait - it was a very long day for her. Her attentiveness and after care through the whole situation was incredible. She came back to the hospital the next morning to see me, then called to check on me the day after I got home, made time to see me when I got my drains out (even though seeing her nurse would have sufficed), and still kept my scheduled follow-up appointment a couple days later. At NO point has she felt rushed or impatient. Every time I see her it seems like I'm her only patient. I really couldn't ask for better care, or better results. If you're considering breast surgery in the Indianapolis area, I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Kelley. She has been wonderful through this whole process.Updated on 19 Nov 2012:I LOVE Dr. Kelley. She changed my life- no exaggeration. The outcome of my breast reduction was beyond my wildest expectations, and she has been wonderful through the entire process. I HIGHLY recommend her.

Hiya, thinking of you and hoping that you are feeling better since your last post and things are "drying out" :)

You are such a sweetheart.. thanks so much for thinking of me :) Yes, things are closing up, just soooo slowly. But the rest of the scars look great, so I can't complain. Wow- less than two month for you now- it's going to fly by!

Yes, it's going quite quickly and the silly season should help occupy my mind for a while. I'm trying not to have every waking thought be about boobs but it isn't easy! My main worry is that he won't be able to take enough and I'll still feel like they're too big. A bit silly really has he's already said that the likelihood of getting me to a B is about 80%. Last night I even dreamt that my hubbie had a breast reduction. Whacky! Glad to hear that your healing well even if it is a slow process. Take good care :)

I believe that is normal! mine have been draining like that since the surgery! Instead of gauze..I got some thin unscented sanitary napkins and use them as pads inside my sports bra..really helps...good luck:)

I am 4 wks post op and up until last week i had minor leaking. I still keep pads in my bra "just in case". BTW.. i use nursing pads. They fit perfect. (My DIL had extras from nursing so i happily used them.

Yes, I was healing pretty good, and then bam - got one open at my t - then one at the bottom of my nipple, then a 3rd one on the left side of my nipple. 2 of the 3 are now healed. 2 of them also had a stitch pop out, once that was gone it was much better healing. I took pics and sent them to my dr. he said not to worry, would just be slow healing (I'm a diabetic and figure thats hes out). I just kept putting on neosporin or polysporin and covering with non-stick pads (gauze seemed to stick and pull off the healing).
  • Reply
My PS said that one-third of healthy people experience slow healing at the T-scar (and 100% of smokers/diabetics) . One-third is quite a high proportion so it sounds as though your healing is on just the right path, and that everything you're experiencing is part of the normal healing process. You could always give your PS a call just to put your mind at ease. Keep up the good work and try not to do too much!

My left breast has drained like that from the beginning my rt side swells but no drainage. I am 2 weeks post op today and my doc said it was ok. I've ruined a few bras although I am still wearing gauze on all of my incisions. Happy thanksgiving to u too

I had "serous" fluid drain week three it's fairly common. Looks like pink or yellow tinged fluid but not opaque like pus. Thins to look out for are fever (greater than 100) redness that is increasing in the breast tissue, hot skin. there are some photos here that illustrate what an infection looks like (I think under Q&A.)

glad ur healing so well. u look great!!! they girls are going to look even more amazing in a few more months. I had yellow discharge too. but it wasnt very much. mostly after i took a shower when all the scabs were wet. it should be ok as long as its not excessive and no odor or infection. if ur concerned ease ur mind and have ur doc take a look. im sure they will say everything is fine. ur body has fluid that has to go somewhere and an open wound is the easiest place for it to go. happy healing hon!!!

Hey!!! Just read through everything and it's very late here but wanted to send a quick message to say YOU LOOK FRICKING AMAZING!!! Good for you! I am back in Japan and still with boob issues but monitoring things v closely! Just one thing - don't worry about the troll that PM'd you. I have read that some other ladies have had the same thing here. Sadly there are these losers around who get a kick out of upsetting people. You'll regret it, huh?! Well, one look at your post-op pics and clearly whoever it was can see they were talking out of their bottom! I love the bikini top pic best! You look incredible! THOSE are the boobs I dream about!!! To be honest I think virtually the entire male population would admit the same thing! Enjoy every moment with them! You've earned it!

Thanks so much for the feedback and comments. This site has been a godsend in support to me. My surgery is scheduled for January 9th and I'm still in the obsessive sizing dilema. I'm 5'6 and about a size 10 mostly due to my giant boobs! I've cut off buying all tops, bras, jackets, and when I walk thru stores actually get giddy that I will be able to fit into a world of different clothes! I am a 36DDD and sometimes an E! I looked at 36B and C bras and the B's look super duper small to me - The C on the other hand looks more realistic however my concern is that if I put on any weight over the years I could end up in a D eventually which would be tragic! Do you notice any weight gain in the boobs post surgery around your cycle? Any and all advice is welcome! :)

Hey rh- it's too early to tell yet about swelling around my cycle- I'm only three weeks in (and, lucky me, I had my period DURING the surgery. Ugh). But I have been told that if you have issues with swelling prior to surgery, the reduction won't fix that. Good luck!

You really do look phenomenal. So glad that it's gone well and that you're happy with everything - that's a glowing testimonial for your surgeon! Did she ever discuss with you the amount in grams she was going to remove, or did you just show her photos of what you wanted and leave her to decide how much that meant?
  • Reply
Thank you so much! You are so sweet- and, yes, in my initial consult we did speak in terms of grams. She did a breast scan and physical exam to determine how much I had to start with and then, based on the cup size I told her I wanted to be, she told me how much she would remove, which was about half of my starting volume. I think those numbers are very useful for insurance companies, but they didn't help me picture my end size very well. In my initial consult I told her I thought I was interested in something between a B and a C and she was actually able to tuck and fold my skin in front of a mirror to show me what that size might look like. That, along with showing her photos, was more helpful than speaking in volumes, because I knew we both had the same mental picture going into surgery. I think showing photos was also useful for talking about shape and nipple size/placement, too, since surgeons can have different perspectives on that, too. Good luck with your surgery- I see you're scheduled for January! Congrats! I OBSESSED about my size pre-surgery and talked to my PS about it a lot- but now I think I probably would have been happy with something a little larger OR a little smaller- just having the weight off my shoulders is great! Your frame is so great- you could do a pretty broad range of sizes, too... so do your due diligence- show your PS photos and have those conversations but, in the end, don't worry. I think you're going to be very happy with the results. Good luck, and keep us updated!

Thanks so much for that. I had a second consult last week and took along my photos of "this is too big", "this is too small", "this is ideal". He showed me some of his photos and he hit on one that is spot on what I'm hoping for, which is a B cup, so I'm happy that we have the same thing in mind.He thinks that is 70-80% likely to come about so I'm hopeful. My insurance doesn't cover any type of cosmetic surgery no matter what the reason, so I'm footing the bill myself. As such we haven't really discussed quantities to be removed. So many people on this site talk about grams that I've been concerned I was missing out on something! Like your PS, he manipulated my boobs to show me the sort of amount of tissue that would be left. It's so hard to gauge, in the end I suppose you just have to trust your surgeon. I'm not worried about being too small but I am worried about being too big! I so desperately want to be a B cup but I'm trying ever so hard not to get too set in my mind about it (it's not going very well though!). I'm sure that once the end of January comes around I'll just be overjoyed to have perky boobs that aren't hanging down my chest!
  • Reply
Oh, you are in a wonderful place!! I think a lot of people on this site talk about grams because that's what the insurance companies want, but if you're paying for it yourself (I did, too) you get to talk about exactly what size you WANT - not some dumb requirement. I was worried about being too big, too. In fact, the last thing I said to my PS before I was wheeled into surgery was, "I will CRY if I have to buy a D-cup after this." ha! I think she took it to heart because I'm a little smaller than I expected- but it's awesome. I'm so excited for you! I think you've done everything right. Now just sit back, (try to) relax, and wait for your date!

No wonder this surgery has a 95% satisfaction rate.. it is absolutely life-changing.

you look really good! great results! did you have alot of drainage?? and how long did it take for them to settle into place??/ thanks!

Hi Kreative! Thanks so much! My drainage wasn't bad. I only went home with a drain on the right side because of the hematoma and it didn't have much output at all. I am still wearing gauze under my bra at this point, but it's mostly just for comfort, though I guess I did over-extend myself a little in the past couple days because I've had a little bit of yellow spotting on the right side. As for the settling, they were very firm for about a week and gradually started getting softer. They'll probably settle even more, but for now I'm enjoying having the boobs of a teenager again!
