Hello I am a newbie in the room. I started my Journey to Breast Reduction in January 2014. Insurance denied my first claim and I had to appeal and it was overturned .I went from 38DDD to hopefully small 38C . I did measure around my breast with nothing on them before I was 44 and now im 39 inches hoping to lose one more inch, that being said one inch equals one cup size.I am just now two weeks post opt with swelling not to bad not on any pain meds but still icing it.I went to University of Iowa Hospital and Dr. Lawrence did my surgery I am pleased with it . I have had 4 neck surgerys two which are fused and I have had 3 lumbar surgerys hoping getting 3 1/2 pounds between both breast will help save a few of disc and help with pain to early to say yet.

Thank you for your kind words SPAGHETTI STRAP LOL I have never in my life remember Spaghetti straps my sports bras are spaghetti straps NO MORE DIGGING~~~~~~~~

3 weeks Post opt tomorrow May 6th 2014

Just updating some recent photos as you can tell I love the Paper tape for sensitive skin even after my strips were removed I didnt want to have any holes as I have seen. And gives me a little more support I think If I go braless I might beable to use this tape,to keep the headlights from coming on . I still have some swelling going on cant wait till all that heals some bruising and my inscions under my breast where are stitches are at My body still is absorbing the internal stiches and until then I will use the paper tape for sensitive skin it peels off oh so gentle and doenst leave sticky residue. I bought 2 rolls and went back and bough two more rolls. I still been icing once to twice a day. Wearing only sports bras. With spaghetti straps I have never been able to wear them my breast was to heavy and uneven.So glad I finally got my BR done .I will post some photos I took today.I havent used any special lotions or creams just the light pressure on my scars will help flatten out the scars. Happy Healing to all. I am so proud to be in the ITTY BITTY TITTY COMITTY.

update

anywhere there was like a bump area I would tape it up for support. And under the breast I start with a piece in center of the breast and start the tape and gently give it a pull to the outer edges really holds well. Hope this review helps some new people. And as far as size goes I looked for three months before and after surgery, but I was so nervous about it But I saw my surgeon Before surgery and he was making my markings, I couldnt stress enough to him I wanted to be a C but was afraid if I said that he would make me a full overflowing C so I stressed I want to BE ON THE SMALLER SIDE OF C I wanted to have nothing to do with ANY Ds at all. I am so pleased so far so good I go back for another post opt visit in a few weeks. I wanted to be a FULL BE SMALL C and I got exactly what I wanted. I figured I could always wear them pretty padded bras if I want to add volume But I could never be anysmaller, and for me before Breast Reduction I wore the thinnest bras and minimizers I could find, and still my HIGH BEAMS were always ON. as far as nipples I havent had my lights on yet I try to get the lightly removable cup bras in these photos I didnt have the removable cups in.In my first post I had a shirt with the lightly cups in them I look little more bigger LOL SO SO HAPPY I was so nervous I have seen alot of ladys not to be as small as they wanted. I do need to lose some weight but weight has never really ever effected my bra size.My surgeon put all internal stitches in me So i just kept changing tape and airing them out daily.And I still feel the paper tape gives me so much more support especially under the breast so I wont get rips tears or hole.

thank you I have a spot on my boob looks infected so i just put antibotics on it and airing it out hope this is all it is was a scab then now just a spot in yelowish green how scabs get when they form? I am hoping it gets healed soon Think antibotic lotion would be good as well as let it air out ?
  • Reply
As long as your doctor has given you the ok to apply lotion, etc. the antibiotic ointment should help. This is what my PS had me put on when I had small sores from spitting stitches.

3 weeks today

ice ice and more Ice I think i see two black stitches just like the ends of them one is on the nipple and one under one of my breast they are clean and not red so I leave them for now hoping they will dissolve inside I go back for 2 post opt on May 19th be here before I know it Keeping clean and gauze still swelling had ice on twice today Just feel like they are full of breast milk LOL and I havent breast fed for 26 years a little more uncomfortable but still tight and hasnt seemed to soften up yet Im still shooting for the MAGIC 4 MONTH everyone seems thats the month At least I will have a more comfortable SUMMER!!!! Wish I would have did this years ago but it all worked out in the end .I have lost 5 inches and hoping to lose one more inch when all swelling goes down. Its a good idea to measure yourself before surgery with out a bra on and bending over and letting the GIRLS HANG in front get a good measurement then the day of the surgery re measure before all swelling kicks in I did I was 44 around breast and back I wore 38DD and hung over under and out of sides big time. Then after surgery I measured next day before had time to swell I was 39. and still have swelling and my shirts fit different for sure I could probably get buy with smaller ones but still very comfy in all my shirts its not pulling in middle of back or neck. Hoping to save my remaining three disc in neck.

I am only two weeks ahead of you, but I also had that feeling like the breasts were engorged and needed to be suckled : ) I definitely feel better and less swollen now, hopefully yours will start to soften soon. I wish I would have thought to take measurements. I did try on one of my old bras yesterday, and there is no way I fill it out now...

Just small update to show a few more healing pictures. I still have some swelling and bruising going on I also have one scab that keeps coming off and then back again I got triple antibiotic on it and dry gauze. I also keep my scars taped with 3M paper tape for sensitive skin I have had many surgerys and by keeping pressure on the scars will be alot flatter. Plus love the support. I have been using a cotton bra as to let them have air I also have some swelling I know you cant tell from photos but I feel the tightness in them I keep icing them not on direct skin I dont want to ICE FREEZE THEM that will kill the skin as well I will hopefully Repost some more photos on my Month Post Op which will be May 15th.

Looking fabulous, IBTC! What is the tape you are raving about? I'd like to pick some up.
  • Reply
Well its from walmart Its called paper tape for sensitive skin its probably the only blue one they have its Made from 3M Mine had a dollar off coupons on top of it so its like 6 dollars a roll and I used two rolls and got two more I have tried the white paper tape IT doesnt WORK so Save your money Hope you have a walmart Not sure where your from But manufacturer is 3M blue paper tape for sensitive skin I have tried several white rolls of paper tape doesnt stick this Blue Is great Hope you can find it I put it under my breast and wow I start from the center and pull toward the armpit I also tape it across MY HEAD LIGHTS awesome for that gently comes off I LOVE IT...
For Mine - the Other Day when I Measured - I was 35 Inches for the Band Size and 41 for the Bust Measurement. Before my Surgery - I was 36 Around Band Size and 48 Bust ! So - that was 12 Inches Difference. And NOW ........... I'de just be 6 Inches !

Hoping you are having a good day. You should really start feeling better these next few weeks. I barely used ice. I could even drink cold liquids for awhile as it caused sharp pain straight to my nipples. And ice did the same. Glad you are able to tolerate the ice.
  • Reply
Thank You I do the same thing when I drink cold stuff its like cold behind my breast I thought now this feels weird LOL never noticed it before surgery but Glad Im not the only one that feels like that Well its not actually ICE it is ICE GEL PACKS that mold to your body from Walmart soft to the skin Large. And I have like cheese cloth towels I put around them I keep them cool not frozen :)
Do the ice gel packs help the incision soreness or do you mostly use it directly on your breasts?

It is listed with the post on 5/11/2014. I can see it. Maybe there is a delay? Or maybe you need to go out of my profile and then go back in?

Some more photos healing quite well still shows more bruising then my camera could pick up

3 Comments

I believe that is it If you take off the ends of the tape just pop off does it say 3M on the inside? have you tried it yet? I usually start with a piece I cut off about a little longer then my Cut under the breast I start on the inside of the breast and lightly pull as you place it.....Amazing support I hope you like it I have wasted my money on three white kinds and they didnt hold near as good as the blue 3M one.....
PLus I use it if my headlights are i use a few little pieces across it I cant wait till I can buy a pretty bra with little pads to keep my lights from showing thru
I have not used it yet, as my revision was only last Friday. I will try this as soon as I am given the ok. Thanks so much'

You are looking great. The abnormal shapes you notice can certainly be related to swelling that you have going on. I remember being concerned about certain things and with time there will be lots of minor changes.

Please be sure to GIVE ME a THUMBS UP on my review if you find it helpful THANKS

Today was my 5 week post opt May 19 2014. Doctor gave me the OK to buy either wire or wireless bras what ever was the most comfy he said I could get into HOTUBS NOW!!! Gave me the OK for anything I will have another appt in two more months. I asked about the nipple I was worried about he reassured me telling me I had some really deep sutures pulling and tugging as they heal.He also said that the volume of the breast really wont change that I could buy either Underwire Bras or just bras with out wires whatever was most comfortable for me. He also said up to a year could be some subtle changes up to a year. So glad I went with my second opinion.

I asked the doctor a few questions I also said well My husband is more worried about it then I AM LOL since I had did so much searching ect before my surgery I had three months of searching and finding out what was going to happen . I started to watch some youtube videos on the actual surgery but I quickly turned them off I figure I didnt want to see them All I knew was I would be taking a nice nap.

Bra Shopping May 20 2014

I got the OK yesterday from my Plastic Surgeon I could by some bras. So today I hit walmart LOL got a few danskin sports bras (3) bright colors and I believe 4 more and none of them are underwires WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO I wore like 38B/C with the Cs being a little roomy not to bad But I could probably go down on my BODY size to a 36 but he told me the size wouldnt change so much they would probably drop center and fluff to a beautiful tear drop size : ) Such a happy camper. Then I went to JCP Pennys and got two bras didnt try on then got home to small so they will have to go back. Glad I tried on different ones in Walmart. I should be good for the summer anyways.

Thanks Peediewife I got them washed and in my drawers still on some ice but the doctor said it was ok to get in hot tub so maybe I should be using moist heat IDK. Was fun to shop for them I usually always dug in the back of bras or clearance rack for my size never tried one on for years. I was shocked I grabbed Bs and Cs LOL only one C kinda fit was a little room in it when I poked it with my finger it popped back out (the bra) LOL that is. I think Im more on Big B small C . WOW WEEZERS!! IM trilled as each day goes by.I just tried tons on and picked a few and left. I think I can possibly go down on the width from 38 to 36 as well I had to put them on the tighted hooks.

Im still using it.IT helps with people whos HIGH BEAMS are on all the time just add a few pieces of tape over them keeps them turned OFF LOL
You look amazing! Really youthful and neat! I can't believe you had to appeal even after all the problems you've had with your poor neck :( I'm really praying you get loads of relief now. Well done, what a fantastic result and 1500 grams off, that's a lot!

Thank You I dont have hardly any pain or soreness Im 6 weeks out I know I have more healing as they did deep sutures and have one nipple puckered if you feel the breast you can almost tell where the healing is done. If I had to do it soon IT WOULD BE YEARS AGO But kinda glad I did wait I had 4 neck surgerys and really had no choice. I need to drop some weight from My belly yet hoping that will come soon as well.I made sure when my surgeon was Marking me UP I wanted to be a BIG B or Very Very Small C , I just picked up some bras off clearance today 5 more LOL 5 bucks each LOL and they have underwires and 38B still hasnt sunk in yet doctor said I will change alot up till 4-6 months then slowly to a year after!!! GOOD LUCK
Oh wow that's fantastic...

Side boobs

My husband keep pointing out the negative on my boobies LOL he said I have that side stuff FAT I dont know is it normal I didnt think it was that bad is that something that comes it time seems Im heavy on the sides I figure it will all drop to the front am I wrong?

Some men are just picky. I don't even notice a side boob. Your breasts are still changing shape - if you are unhappy with anything at the six month mark ask your surgeon if there is anything they can do.
  • Reply
Thank you and mine is a perfectionist and doesnt like change LOL TO BAD SO SAD FOR HIM I know I have to wait at least 4-6 months for the benefits I am almost down 2 months will be next tuesday.
Hmmm. not great of your husband to try to point out imperfections. side boob is an issue for many, especially if your surgeon did not use lipo on the sides. it won't shift unless it is post surgical swelling although weight loss might help a bit. it is not a major issue for you, i had to look hard at your pics to try to see what he is talking about

Wow i caan tell you are thrilled to get rid of those big heavy droopy old things for perky little ones (but they aren't so little) they look perfect and don't forget it does take a year for everything to settle and go where it's supposed to. Wonderful results..Congrats :) xx

Thank you I am a B/C so far all the bras but one was a B so they are bittys for me
Looking great! I've wanted to ask you about the blue tape. I researched it and totally believe you about how great it is. I know I have to ask my PS, but I'd just like your experience and opinion. When did you start using the tape? And does it matter how long we use it? I have a feeling the longer we can use the tape, the better healing and support it will provide for our breasts. One lady said, whatever tape she was using, that she would place her tape under her breasts and pull it taut, just enough, to give a little extra support to her bust. So, tell me what you think. Thx

I have hit "...helpful" many times. And, today I keep noticing it won't take it. I wonder if that is because I've clicked "Yes" before. Hmmm. Oh, well, I do keep trying. And, you are a joy to share your experiences. It really does help the rest of us.

RIPPLING light purple 10 weeks post one breast

It is just in the right breast which if I hold it up you can see the rippling or puckering they did alot more work to my right breast 600gms out of left and 900mgs out of right and it only does it if I bend forward a little with no support or if I grab it and hold it some numbing and nerve endings growing back and little light purple when I massage it around part of the bottom of the nipple any one else have this ?

2 Comments

Hi there,no haven't noticed any rippling,but then what you out of your right breast is just over what I had combined (444gms & 446gms)so in comparison that is a lot so your healing will be different as well,I'm sure it will settle down,you look fantastic. What is it about the right boob...the problems I've had have been the right boob and lots here on the forum the same..who was it on here I think peediewife that said "THEY ARE NOT TWINS" they each have their own identity very true very well said.

  • Reply
Yep compared to what I had before
Obviously your surgeon will be more specific, but it looks as if you simply have excess skin on the sides; when your arms are raised, you can discern a really nice shape to the breasts. Because you have had weight removed, the skin hasn't had opportunity to 'shrink' up. I think having our arms raised when we take 'selfies' distorts the true image of the breasts, though. I really agree with everyone else: it is all normal because it is YOUR normal but your surgeon will be able to tell you for certain IF and WHEN you should be concerned.

LMFAO well its three months today I have included 2 photos my scars are more angry looking as they are expected to be part of the healing of the scars. Does it look like I have bottomed out or is that just me?

thank you :) my husband keeps saying I have side boobs I go back to Surgeons on the 25th see what he says probably tell me to lose weight I dont know I think I had that before surgery cant see it when I have the back smoothing bras on Hope it dont cost more to get rid of
It's funny what husband's notice and comment on. It shouldn't cost much to get rid of the side boob - you don't have much - it would be a simple lipo procedure. I think all surgeons should offer to lipo the sides when doing a breast reduction.

Im asking anyone who has to deal with side boob or bat wings I go to my doctors next friday July 25th Im afraid to ask him about it afraid he say Im fat!!!! Can this be fixed I didnt have this before surgery!!!!! HELP

My p/s did side lipo, he knew insurance wouldn't pay, and they didn't, but he didn't charge me for it either. I had a great p/s.
  • Reply
From what I can see in your photo you don't look fat. I'm wondering why the doc didn't take off the side boobage as part of the br surgery. Much of my side boobage was taken off by cutting six inch incisions on each side and taking it out.
  • Reply
Im didnt notice this right after surgery it kinda settled in and mine was done for medical necessity so not sure if he would say that is cosmetic or not I go back next friday!!!

A tighter band? http://www.clearpointmedical.com/compression-garments/surgery-recovery-bras.aspx at the bottom of the page is a do-it-yourself "clevage" bra and inserts (just playing, but it is a fillable silicone system that goes in mastectomy bra). Okay, these are real: http://www.biggerbras.com/catalog/bras-lingerie-swimwear.shtml?ss_1=&ss_2=&ss_3=&ss_4=783 It says "Bigger..." but has from a 28A to up in the 50s, and more. AND, good ol' Fredericks of Hollywood. Nicer and cheaper than most places now, http://www.fredericks.com/new-exxtreme-cleavage-bras/br3,default,sc.html I hope it all gets better really soon. You are too wonderful to be unhappy. And you do look great. Good luck.

UPDATE Im going to have a revision they have to call me scheduled 2 hours going to numb me and make the scars longer I suppose I know some one had this done but forgot who did!! Please Chime in please. I guess he didnt say I had to pay for it so wandering if my insurance does cover it ???
  • Reply
The surgeon wouldn't discuss payment stuff, so I would for sure call up and ask someone in his/her office who deals with billing, etc. You don't want any surprises! Good for you for investigating and pursuing this!
It is very difficult to see in your photos, but this is very common after a breast reduction regardless of how thin you are. My PS informed me of this before hand and said to avoid that he would recommend liposuction but it is typically not paid for by insurance. I did pay the lipo cost out of pocket and happy I did.

Hope it goes great. I don't understand why PS's don't automatically "pull in more from the sides," take more breast tissue from under the arms. I have looked at dozens of photos trying to see exactly where the breast actually ends and the "side" under the arm begins. I am certain a lot of what PS's might call "fat" is breast tissue/breast fat. But, it is a part of the breast. Hence, I wish they would just take it all the one time. Sorry. Got a little carried away. You are so nice and helpful. You do not deserve to have to go through more surgery. Hope it comes out fabulous.
THank you I had to mention it But he had pulled it all around really tight at first but three months he said the skin softens up and then that happens I wont have to be put out he scheduled a two hour slot to do both breast going to extend my inscions I think it is fairly common I had so much hang with MY bigger boobs never noticed it at all I heard it can happen often when you have a lot reduced if you know anyone who has gone thru it Please let me know they are gonna numb it and try to get out that they can!!!

I got my letter in mail today for my revision I am not paying anything normally if your breast reduction was covered by your insurance they normally will cover any complications that may arise. And LIPO Is cosmetic I did not have lipo it was tight at first this is normal and insurance covers mine!!! Just another Trip not a big deal my surgeon is 2 hours away but He took off over three pounds Im glad I am getting it done . Good Luck get ahold of your Surgeons office doesnt hurt to asked I asked at my 3 month appt. Scheduled August 25 I dont go under the knife they scheduled me for a 2 hours slot I will be numbed up and my inscions made longer I have read its worth the extra inscions. And I see SOMA have very nice back smoothing front closure bras I look good in them but some of my other bras hangs over sides I dont like that And iT IS gETTING fIXED LOL good luck I tried posting 6 photos on my site for before been having issues with the site will try again if I have to post one at a time LOL I have 6 photos of the side boobage!!!
Im taking it my insurance is paying for my revision I got my appt thru the mail and they would have told me before hand everything I have read is pretty much if your insurance covers your first breast reduction they will pay for any complications that go along with it!!! GOOD LUCK

I cant seem to DELETE SHIT!!!!! LOL Or they dont post then they do VERY VERY WEIRD!!!!!!!!!
MJ1964 I believe I got alot of the duplicates erased I know alot of them kinda look the same But was posting it mainly for the Blue Paper Tape for sensitive skin how I applied from beginning to 3 months. I just went back and looked at my first photos after reduction I had a doctor answer my question stating it was FAT ROLL. My BMI is normal range!! Was not there Before and you can see right after he had the skin pulled tight. My surgeon said it was loosing of the skin so not sure I know Aug 25th I will have revision done scheduled for a 2 hours slot. I will be numbed and inscions will be made longer to help address the issue. HOW DID I KNOW I WOULD GET THAT ANSWER Goes to show Surgeons and or Doctors have a opinion and that is all its worth is there opinion! And I cant see how to edit post after the doctors have answered our questions. I had posted a question and it wasnt my initial question some one had changed the wording on my question and I loaded photos the first time and they didnt show up. So there is someone editing my stuff **** SIGH***** no wander I cant get a good answer some one edits my questions and photos. And alot of my updates are grayed out and havent been posted!!!!**********SIGH**********

Hi itty...lol I love that name! You look amazing! I would also like to have a resuction and I was wondering what history you had that caused your insurance to change their minds and cover your procedure. I have been having back and neck pain for years and thought that my insurance would cover a reduction but I just don't know how to go about it. I am currently a 34 DD and would like to go to a B/C. Is there something that I need to have my doctor do? I would love to not have to come out of pocket for something that is truly a medical problem. I appreciate any feedback you may have.
  • Reply
Well I would first call your insurance company and ask them if breast reduction is a covered service and it the say yes if medical neccesity then you need to meet there critiera I would ask them what criteria is needed. Then if they deny you then you need to get any information you can to prove it to be medical necessity. A letter from your family doctor and chiroprator notes a letter from your self and your PS should send a letter, any Pyhsical Therapy notes will help and if you have ever had rash under your breast ect. I do have a few letters you can view if I had your email address I can attach them for you to view :P Good Luck lots of times insurances puts a claus in there policys
Oh thank you! My email address is mfevans29@yahoo.com I will call my insurance tomorrow. I pray that your revision goes well. Thank you again for posting your journey it is really helping me to make a decision.

I took dressings off this is what I ended up with!!! Big improvement!!! Took a Hour and Half to get it done in office with just having it localized with numbing meds and when he hit part that wasnt numbed I told him and he poked me with more numbing meds!!!Also a photo of my ICE GEL PACKS got from walmart they also have the equate brand but wasnt there when I bought mine Im sure much cheaper going to look for another pair today!!! Come in handy!!

Happy Healing! I see we both had procedures done around the same time. I think that your afters are great, and I'm sure that with the revision you will be happy! You must feel lighter without all of that boobage! Lol! I still wish I could've used your recycled tissue.

Here is my side revision a few extra photos

Was wondering how your doing with getting a bra to fit right. I bought two today and they are not fitting very well for me. I feel I need support the hard side piece in the underwires hurt. I was also measured today and before I was measured a 42 G, today the lady measured me for a 44 D. All the back fat is really bothering me. Otherwise I love them.
  • Reply
I m doing pretty good two weeks today after revision I would ask your surgeon about getting a revision on the sides to extend your scars this is a common issue for alot of women I did mine at 4 months post. I had the same issue the underwires were cutting into the sides and being very painful I had lots of dense breast tissue and fat that we didnt see because our breast before surgery was heavy and pulled on it. I would definetly mention this to your surgeon and see what they have to say Good Luck!! I have extended inscisions on the sides which is part of the trade off for better shape of the breast!! My insurance paid for my revision I guess my insurance paid for any complications that I had they would pay for took off quite abit more which IM sure helps I had to do mine because of medical neccessity!!
Oh, I like it! I think you're going to love it once you're healed! Glad it's gone so well, happy for you girl!
