Beast Replacements

I had an augmentation 12 years ago in the UK....

I had an augmentation 12 years ago in the UK. Subsequently with the PiP scare I decided to have a replacement. As the hospitals I had attended originally "misplaced my file" might I say conveniently, I shopped around until I found a reputable surgeon/clinic. 3 days ago I had an augmentation, lift and mastopexy. The last three days have been quite lazy sore tiring and itchy and let's not forget sore bottom. Tomorrow I will have a consultation and wrappings off. I am worried especially with having a lift and nipple move, what the out come will be.I will definitely post pictures.

Okay it been a while but ive been soooo busy... wish i could say socially but...Alas at work anyway...
One week after my op in April I flew back to work (i work in the middle East). I would not recommend anyone do what I did. Not only did I fly back but went straight to work. I thought i would die... the pain, agony and sickness that I felt was not worth the rush to work. I would, if I ever did this again, listen to my mother... and stay at home and rest. She even offered to pay me my wage to stay... love her... bless.
Anyway, my sutchers pulled and I started to bleed, the dressing that was on the sutchers had gone into the opening and the opening had got infected...luckily there is excellent health care here and I was looked after very well. On the other hand when i rang Mybreast to explain that the sutchers had opened, I was told I qoute " oh don't worry my friend had the same problem and she was okay after a week" end quote...
need I say more.
I have to say however, I am pleased with the look of my augmentaion. I am posting one week later pictures and will add new ones very soon.

Truth be told Doctor Sojitra made a brief appearence to draw the lines on my breast and then after the op again to tell me all had gone well and I could go home...Well, being as I had paid for an over night stay, this made me feel unwelcomed and uncomfortable all made even worse when the nurse came to kick me out, I had'nt even fully recovered from the anasthetic yet!!!!

How do you feel at this point in regards to nipple movement? I thought about doing that when I had my original augmentation because of husband preferences... which I had no problem with. Was just worried about losing sensation. I am looking to have a revision due to the length of time I have had mine. This time I would like to go 'under' the muscle and probably go with saline. Still doing the research. About to go on my first consult for the revision. Wondering if the revision is more costly or similar.

The revision is more costly as they remove clean and add new ones. I had mine above the muscle. I did request under but they felt it would be better on top. I have no problem with this. As for sensitive nipples, there is some sensation but not as it was before. However, it was the same when I had the augmentation many moons ago. The sensation comes back in time. Hope this helps

Thank you for sharing your story on RealSelf. Hmm, yes, interesting about your misplaced files. Seems like they would have to be in the hospital archives somewhere. How did your post op consultation go? You had a lot done, so don't be surprised when the wrappings come off. Take it easy and looking foward to your photos. Congrads!!
