Grand Total for everything is $11,443 (I paid $12,500 in May 2012)
This is really getting expensive.

I told my husband I'm so sorry I didn't do all this the first time, May 2012. He was really sweet and said he understood. So, here I go again.

Anesthesia: $1000 Surgical facility: $2750

Breast Implant Extraction: No charge.

Mastoplexy with silicone implant exchange: $3780 for procedure and $2163 for the Natrelle style 20 - 350 cc silicone implants. Wish I could have donated my one year old ones to someone who needs them. So sad.

I am going to go from 450cc silicone to 350cc silicone with a lift. He said the left will only be cut around the areole, but the right might have to have a lollipop incision. The strattice has already incorporated itself into my breast tissue so it should help keep them perky in the future.

In May of last year I had my 30 year old 425cc silicone implants removed and replaced with Natrelle style 20 450cc silicone implants. I was undecided on whether to make them smaller at the time which might require a lollipop cut, or to just go larger and combine it with the strattice (internal bra) . You can read my review on this journey.

Bottom line is I changed my mind. Plus one of them is droopier than the other. Don't know what happened. It's like the strattice wasn't pulled as tight on that side. So since I have to go under and fix it I decided I would go smaller and do the lift. These puppies are too heavy and I play alot of golf and just want them to be perkier and small. Plus I'm 53 years old and don't care if I have big boobs any more. As I get older I'm having more back pain and I think smaller ones will be better for me as I finish out the 50's and 60's etc. My husband is a butt man not a boob man so I'm good there. He's happy I'm going smaller. Maybe thats why he's not bitching about the price! He prefers medium size and perky.

I don't wear a bra. Never have unless I absolutely had to. I wear nipple silicone gel covers that cover up the nipples when I where tops and dresses where the nipple might show. I've always hated the constriction of wearing a bra. My mom never did either. My sister does though. Anyway, I'm going smaller, about 100 cc's. I think they will look fine and since he's doing a lift and they wont be as heavy I'm probably good for the rest of my life. Plus I still have the strattice (internal bra) and he said he would tighten the right one up. I had my others for over 30 years without problems.

Underarm pit area: No charge
I'm one of those unlucky girls who has extra fat under her arm pit (extra upper breast tissue/fat). To me it looks like vagaina lips. Yukky! It makes me self conscious when I wear spagetti straps and tanks that show that area. My ba done in 1981 was done under my arm pits. So hes gonna make a small incision, such out the fat, cut out any loose skin and draw it up so I'm smooth there again. Yea! No more vagina lips under my arms!

Abdomen: (mini tt or full tt with aggresive liposuction) $1750
Last May 2012 I had a mini tummy tuck without muscle repair and lipo of my flanks only. I wish I had gone ahead and done a full tummy tuck then, but I didn't want as big a scar and new belly button. I really liked the one I had. He said I would need to lipo the upper and lower later. Which I don't understand. I know he could have done the lipoabdominoplasty at that time and I wouldn't be going through this. But he did a traditional mini tummy tuck that required the blood vessels and nerves to heal. This time he says he's doing the lipo-abdominoplasty and my blood vessels won't be affected so I will heal faster too. But still seems weird that he couldn't have done that the first time. Anyway $1750 is a good price.

So I need the excess fat that was never sucked out gone and he needs to remove a little more skin. So he said it's a mini tt revision. But, I'm gonna make him swear that he will do the full tummy tuck if I'm not completely flat. I will not go thru this again. I want to be done with surgeries. Really!

I'm gonna push him to do a full tummy tuck or at least get aggressive with the lipo and skin removal.

So thats it girls. That's whats happening next thursday.

I will post pictures after I exercise my little dog.

Last office visit on Tuesday before Surgery On Thursday

I made another appt. with my ps to double make sure and be reassured that a modified mini tt is all I will need to get the look everyone else on this site is ending up with. I am going to extract a promise that after paying out a total of $24,000 I just cant go through this again and if a full tt is what should have been done he's gonna no charge me. As it is I don't think he did the latest and most recommended method of lipoabdominoplasty. Cuz, if he had I wouldn't have all this blubber above my incision site. So If he's not doing the latest method I'm going to cancel and find a doc who does. I never thought about looking into what is the best method of doing a tt and should have done my research last time. To make sure my doc was doing the latest most preferred method that is easier and with a quicker recovery time. I'll let you know. But, I'm worried!

Did preop mammo on thursday. Inconclusive report today.

My husband just called me and told me he got back my mammo report he had ordered for my surgery on thursday. They said I had some anomilies on the upper right side breast above the implant. I think it may be the strattice or some left over silicone that my surgeon wasn't able to get out last may. So now I have to drive to Andrews which is an hour away and pick up the cd to take to my ps on tues. He's going to use it as a guide when he removes and replaces the implants I have in now. So he can make sure I don't have any more calcified silicone left in the breast tissue. Calcified silicone is not dangerous it just makes your mammos difficult to read. So you keep getting false positives for cancer. So its a good thing a want to go a bit smaller and he's going to go in there anyway. His wife just had both her breasts removed from cancer last month so he's paranoid about this kinda stuff. I'm not worried its cancer. I know it's the ruptured silicone that I had for over 30 years. Not a big deal. I never had any aches or pains or symptoms ever in the 30 years I had them. But, these false positives on mammos needs to be remedied. My husband whose a doc is not concerned either. But he wants me totally cleaned out so he called my ps and told him what's going on and my ps told him to have me bring him the films on cd and he would use that as a guide to finish cleaning me out before he puts the new implants in. GOSH! Drama.
I think all is ok too . I'm surprised you didn't have to do a MRI . I was told that's what I have to do now that I have gel . No more mammogram . 
Reply
Sissy. I don't want to ever get a mammogram again but I was told I would need both as an MRI doesn't detect all cancers? Hmmm... I'm sure my rupture was made worse by one of the mammograms I had and I REALLY don't want that to happen again.

Oh crap! I thought my surgery was thurs. Its Wednesday.

Oh god, I'm brain farting. All week I've been thinking and preparing for my sx to be on thursday. I decided to look through my packet and the surgery date said wednesday. OMG what if I had showed up on thursday instead of wednesday. Crap!

Lubbock is an hour away and I was planning on going up wed. night, now I need to change that to tomorrow. Tomorrow! OMG. I still have to go to Andrews and pick up copy of mammo xrays.

Ok just got the mammogram cd from the radiologist

I drove an hour and picked up the dang cd. The report says "On the right MLO view, their is focal mass and/or distortion in the superior breast and axilla. This is likely due to free silicone and fibrosis, but additional evaluation is required to exclude carcinoma. The new silicone implants are unremarkable."

Don't you just hate to ever see that word in a report about yourself?
Good luck tomorrow !!!

Flat stomach and Perky boobs. Post Op Day 1 with pictures.

I am definitely flat and my boobs are perky. I am so thrilled to be done. Not much pain at all. I'm really surprised. Only slight pain when getting up in the lower abdomen but once up it goes away. Dang it. I do have one drain cuz he said he cut more skin than he thought he would. Draining pretty good so I'm glad he put one in. Dont want a seroma. This drain doesn't hurt the stiches holding them in are loose so theres no pulling. I didn't have my surgery until 2pm yesterday. He finished at 6pm. I didn't wake up till 8pm.

My boobs and underarm are slightly tender but thats all.

My tummy doesn't hurt but for a moment when I get out of bed.

I am able to sleep on either side. Amazing!

I can stand totally straight. Not bent over at all.

He lipod 700cc which is only .7 liters, but I didn't have much fat to lipo. All that was mainly lower belly.

He cut 2" more of skin to tighten me up.

I am so thrilled because I look completely flat in the mirror and thats with swelling.

This recovery is gonna be such a breeze this time versus last time!

Only one bruise with all that lipo.

I can't believe I only have one bruise with all that lipo and you can barely see that one. Maybe the bruising will show up later but I don't think so.

Thank you everyone who thought about me. I'll keep you posted
Go w are you feeling today ?

Post Op Day 2 - Paying the Piper

Well, I was a bad girl and smoked up to the day before my surgery. It was only 2. But I haven't had one since. So I'm 3 days smoke free. Only problem is that when you quit your lungs want to cough. OMG! Hurt! But that's what I get for smoking and some time or later you have to pay the piper. So I'm coughing up this glub crap and wincing as I do it. But my lungs are clearing and this is a good thing. I do not want to pick up a cig again. Ever. Pray for me.
Ÿay! You look terrific and it's unbelievable you are not in pain. Lucky you, I am taking pain pills but super stiff and pain in my armpits. I'm managing tho. I am so happy for you. I had the remnants of a cold when I had my TT; ouch the coughing is painful. Did you et muscle repair?

no muscle repair. How is your pain with the lipo in your thighs?

Hey you look sooo good! Glad to know you are standing straight already! Happy healing!!

Post Op day 3 - I pooped!

I am normally a very regular person, but thought so many here were having constipation problems that I took some Milk of Mag. Well it worked, and worked and worked and worked. I'm still going the next day. I lost 2 lbs of .... Still not in much pain. Drains are hardly draining. I'm stiff If I stay still for awhile. Boobs are tender and hot and swollen, but don't hurt. Just feel super swollen. I had no muscle repair. Only lipo and he cut out 2 more inches of skin.

Shower!

Yea! I finally took a shower. I sure was glad to get that over with. My hair is long and it just felt awful. I feel great still. I think I am going to bounce back pretty quick. I've had no trouble sleeping. I did start to itch last night but took 2 benydryl and fell back asleep. My incision looks good. It is very flat with no wrinkles. Underarm pits sutures are tender and sore. Vagina lips under my arms look worse, but hoping this is just swelling. If not, he'll have to fix them in his office. Boobs are tender, swollen and sore. I think I'm really happy with the size.

Yea! Hubby said he would remove drain tonight or tomorrow.

My drain is hardly draining so my husband said he would remove it this evening or tomorrow. It's draining less than 25cc in a 24 hour period so it's ok. I won't miss it, that's for sure. I'm lucky he's a doc and can do this for me.
Dinner sounds great!! I'm having cashews and a rum and coke :-( I'm so happy you were able to drop the drains. It's always such a relief! You look great!!

Weight went up, now going down.

I weighed 149 going into surgery. Weighed 154.5 afther surgery. Today I'm 152. I know when all this healing is done I'll need to get some workouts in. I don't want all my fat to land on my butt and thighs. I didn't need my thighs or butt done. But I hear if you gain weight you gain it where you still have fat cells left. Don't want that. I'm still wearing the drain since a little is still coming out. But it absolutely doesn't bother me one bit, since I took the sutures out tacking it to my skin. Ouch ouch ouch. Everytime I moved it pulled and I noticed the site getting redder too. So I knew the stitches had to come out. Thank god, the tube has stayed exactly where its at. All is good and most of all for me, no drain pain!

woohoo another 2 lbs.

Just peed a whole lot. Weighed myself again and dropped another 2 lbs. Didn't know I could pee that much! Now I'm 150. When all is said and done I hope to weigh around 130-135. I've been wearing 8-10, but hope to be in 6-8. It will also be nice to buy tops and dresses that aren't a large to fit my new boobs. I'm tired of taking in the sides of tops and dresses to fit my boobs. I'm hoping for off the rack now. I enjoyed the big ta tas throughout my 20's, 30's and 40's. But now I'm gonna be 54 and my priorities have changed. I just want them to be normal sized and perky and not get in the way of my damn golf swing!

Flat! I'm really flat!

While I was taking everything off to get a good view of all the work I had done, I told myself to really be critical in assessing my happiness with this latest bout of surgeries. Boobs.... check! Underarm pit fat.... maybe check (still swollen, appears better, but not quite sure if its swelling or still some fat) Tummy.....check! I can't believe how flat and totally smooth my skin is all over my tummy. No lumps, wrinkles, bulges, bruises. No nothing but flatness. It really really looks good. The incision is also so completely flat. I think I'm finally going to be happy with myself. My ps told my daughter that he worked really really hard on my tummy because he knew how stressed out I was about the results I wanted. I really really stressed to him i had better be flat when he's done. It looks like he did a great job and that i really didn't need a full tt and no muscle repair. So my recovery should be really fast compared to the full tt.
wow you looked good before, so you are gonna look great afterwards, happy healing and cant wait to see more pics, you didn't look bad at all in before in your swimsuit, cant imagine how good your gonna look in that when you heal !

Thanks, but like everyone else here its whats under that swimsuit i had a problem with. Now i'm completely flat, not an ounce of fat on that stomach. I'm really pleased.

So glad to hear everything came out well. I'm at 145 and hoping to get to 135. Last ten or the hardest! I can't wait to see your pics

Well, still stuck with the drain.

Hubby said until I am less than 25cc I have to keep it in. So here I am on day 5 still have drain. It's not bothering me much, but I just want the freedom of not dealing with the tube every time I go to the bathroom. Just seems unsanitary. Ugh! I know its best to leave it in until most of the fluids are drained. I know it decreases chances of seroma. I certainly don't want a seroma at this point. I've seen some people develop them even after 3 to 4 weeks postop. So I'll be a good girl and leave them in and not bitch so much about them to myself. I am having a fruit fly problem here at home. Geez! I hate fruitflies. I don't even have garbage or fruit out. They just appear once a year around sept. I've got cider vinegar and soap out. it helps but there's just so many. I'm freaked out that they will get in my wounds.
They come every year in september. I don't know why. Every year! I hate them. i don't keep fruit out so I don't know what makes them come. I think its the univerisity. Every year in sept the genetics dept. does fruit fly experiments and they release a crap load into the environment. I dunno? Seems coincidental.
Reply
Oh Lordy! I found a rotten banana behind my trash can in the kitchen closet this summer. There were soooooo many fruit flies! How the hell do the multiply so fast! Cider vinegar did the trick in like 2 days. Put plastic wrap over the container with the vinegar and funnel it down about 3 inches from the liquid and put a small hole in the center. It traps them! Happy healing!

Mini TT and Breast Lift with Implant

Yea! My drain came out last night. It felt so good, it was starting to get sore there. I'm glad I only had one. My weight continues to drop. Its now 149 which is the same as it was when I went in. I woke up with a real bad headache, hopefully it will go away soon. I hope all you out there are healing well. My stomach is still flat. Very little swelling at all. Wearing a binder. My boobs are still tender, not wearing anything still. I'm supposed to, but its not comfortable so I don't. I'm not a very good patient. I wear the binder because it feels better with it on when walking. But when I put the bra on it makes my boobs ache deeply. Can't tolerate it, so I figure I better listen to my body. I know docs aren't always right.
Ok, ladies. Day 8 of no smoking! I may have that demon licked!

1 week followup visit - tapes removed.

I had my one week fu and the ps and nurse took off the tapes and removed some of the nylon stitches. He said I also have dissolvable ones as well. He said everything looked good. He said he cut out a lot of breast tissue and put in Natrelle style 20 350cc silicone implants in both breasts. He said to wear a bra to keep the sutures from stretching out and ruining his good work. So I'm wearing a a bra now.

He said tummy looked good. He said he moved my incision down towards my pubic area by 1 inch and cut 1 inch above that as well. My incision is very very low. Any lower and we'd get into my vagina! haha! It's looking good. Very little swelling. He said to exactly what I did last time to my incision because he said it was one of the best healed thin incisisions he'd seen. I told him I waited till the scabs have all fallen off at about 2-3 weeks and then use gel strips for 3-4 hours twice a day. Sometimes more or less. But I didn't sleep in them. I think they help alot with making the scar very thin and very flat. I'll see him again in 6 weeks. He said if I had any problems my hubby couldn't handle to give him a call. My hubby went with me and neither of us foresee any problems. I'm a great healer. I will post some pics tomorrow. I'm very tired after the 2 hour trip plus some shopping!
I hate to agree but PS is probably right about the bra. Did he say how long you have to wear one? I started not wearing mine at night but still worry that the girls will not stay where they should be. I can't wait to see your pictures. Are 20 350's high profile? Mine are 15's and moderate 339cc. You are so lucky that your pockets were not stretched out. The internal stitches were the hardest for me. Get some rest. ((Hugs))
Reply
Yes the style 20 are high profile. He was going to put in the 15 moderate profile, but put in the 20 so I had less width and more projection. Not sure if he had to do internal stitches, but I think he did. I didn't ask. I've just asked them to fax my hubby the surgical notes so I know exactly what he did during the surgery. So, I will let you know. I do feel a pinch or pull periodically. He said he didn't want me to stretch the sutures so I'm guessing that means he did sew the pocket just like yours. Are yours still wrinkly deformed looking?

That's great that its all going good . I can't wait to see new pics . I'm happy that you finally got what you wanted the first time . Sorry you have to wear a bra . It is for the best you have spent a lot of money on your boobies . Happy healing ! Hugs !

Post Op Pics Day 9

Here are some postop pics with the tape removed. Not much change in looks. Difference in before and after are subtle, but i know how much flatter I really am. I'm very happy with results. Still hoping boobs will get smaller.
Hubby just said. Ummm, honey I think your boobs really are smaller. I just laughed and said, yep! and getting smaller everyday. I could tell he was happy. He's an ass man, never liked my big boobs and the way other men stared at them. So hes very happy they are smaller. Me, too. I enjoyed the big ones for 30 years. I'm looking forward to a little less weight there.

Well, my ps just faxed us his surgical operative report that details what he did. This is so nice to have on file. He sucked out 700 ml of fluid this time. In total 1.2 L if you add in the 500 ml from last time. That equates to 2.6 lbs of total fat. Yes! This fat will never ever come back. That's the great thing about lipo!

Appt Wed. to zap cellulite on thighs! Free

Hey girls, called bella derme and made an appt. for wed. for free venus freeze to one area. Picked my thighs. I've seen it work on some people and not on some. So I will see. They give me great deals. First treatments free, and I think I can talk her into doing buttie and thighs for $89 per treatment. Wish me luck! I need my thighs tightened and the cellulite treated. I'll make a new review on Venus Freeze tomorrow with before and afters. If it works I'm gonna do my arms too! This treatment is not supposed to hurt at all either.

Oh. I forgot I get 500 units of free botox from my ps too!

my ps also offered 500 units of botox or 1 unit of derma filler for free with my surgery! I chose the 500 units of botox. I'm don't need any fillers yet.
Sounds like you we're offered a great deal with Botox!

Rib pain below Left boob after lift and implant! Ouch!

Does anyone else have a pulling pain right under their left boob or other one? It feels like my top rib is broken. I can't even lay on that side at all cuz it starts to hurt worse. Its almost like a stitch is there and its pulling on it. If that's what it is I guess it will go away when the sutures dissolve. But that takes months! I can feel it pull even when I take a deep breath. Ouch ouch ouch.
Dang it I hope the pain goes away . I would call the dr . Hugs !

Post OP day 13 pics of mini tummy tuck revision

I've posted some day 13 post op pics of the revised mini tummy tuck. Will do the boobs later. In this picture I'm weighing 150.9. I was 149 going in, 154 day after, 152, 150, 149 and now 150.9 Crazy up and down, partly swelling partly eating! Gotta stop that. Today i've cut down on eating. Dont want to get fat!
I tried to update some new scar pics but there's a problem with realself and they are working on it. It's amazing how much the scar changes in just 2-3 days at this stage of recovery. I will try again to update my reviews when I get back home. I just love visiting Dallas and hubby never stints on the hotel or restaurants! I'll probably gain 2 lbs this weekend. Had prime rib last night with banana coconut cream pie at Lawry's!

The pain in my left boob has subsided by 80%. Just a little pull now. I'm sure it was a few stitches sewn into the muscle or nerve and as they are dissolving the symptoms are disappearing! yea! Tummy hurts after walking alot, but only time can make that go away. I'm in Dallas and now I'm gonna go spend some money while hubby and bro are golfing!

You are looking great! And, so flat, I'm still feeling swollen in my hips, flanks, and lower abs below BB.but if it isn't that, then he didn't take enough and should do a revision. With this last sx, I went in at 153 and am now at 157. Ugh! I want to get back to the gym and get down to 140. I did get to go to the store today and buy a few real bras. i love them so much. i am 14DPO and am a solid 36DD. now that i am in a good, supportive bra i am beginning to feel like they are part of me.

New Scar Pics 15 Days PO on 10/10/13 - try to post again!

Okay, I tried to post these on 10/10 but it wouldn't upload. Today it finally is working so here they are. It's amazing to me how much the scar has changed in just 2 days. I have been soaking in a tub and resoaping and rinsing off with a handheld shower before i get out of the tub. It feels so good to soak again. I love to read in the tub. I think the soaking has helped some of the scabs come off. I didn't get a new bb but i like mine anyway. Its really tiny now compared with pre mini tt in May of 2012.

Thanks luv.  It's getting better everyday.  The scar is about as low as you can get without being in the pubic area.  I'm gonna have to have some hair laser done below the scar now though.

Had an infection this last month in my left boob.

Unfortunately I got an infection in my left boob and it required antibiotics. Finally its getting better. My husband thinks it came from a blocked mammory gland or a stich. Finally its getting better. I'm not 100% happy with my results and neither is my husband, but I'll give it more time. Gained 13 lbs since surgery. No more procrastinating I have to work out.
Have had two infections in the past 60 days on my left breast. Finally, getting over it.

Swelling and redness on left breast still present after 1 year

I'm going to the doctor tomorrow to evaluate why my left breast gets red, irritated, painful and swollen every month for now going on one year. Needless to say I'm not happy about this. I can't understand what's going on and feel like we are shooting in the dark. I'm going to suggest an MRI and maybe that will tell us whats going on. I've been depressed about this. The first redo went great, but the lollipop reduction, not so well. I guess I should have left things alone.
The inflammation and redness is coming from the permanent internal sutures located around the nipple. I am getting them removed tomorrow and hopefully that will stop these monthly episodes of inflammation, redness and pain! Ultrasound showed inflammation and fluid along the internal suture line and recommended the black sutures be removed.

He's very sweet and very likeable. His staff has been absolutely great. No pressure. In fact, I'm pressuring him. They got me in right away once I decided. Within 3 days for consult and 2 weeks surgery scheduled. Will keep you updated on how he performs when it's over.
