My breasts are higher. The nipples are much smaller. I didn't lose any nipple sensation. BUT the recovery was way more than I was lead to believe. Post operative care was almost nothing. Healing from this has been a full time job for several weeks now. I was in great physical condition prior to surgery but am still struggling to get back to normal. I've had two infections, an open wound, and what may be permanent skin discoloration.
The surgeon indicated the lift could ease back, neck and shoulder pain. He promised he would reduce enough to help ease my pain but I'm still exactly the same bra size I was before (34G). I think I just needed a better doctor.
