I want to share my experience since I was unable to find very much info on my situation when I searched. I had my first augmentation 10-11-11. I was a 36A. I was 29 (now 30), 110, 5'3", no children. I have 375 cc silicone Mentor implants, inframammory incision. I am now a 34d. I went to a reputable surgeon in Palm Beach Gardens, FL. I noticed right away that my right breast was sitting a little lower than my left. I figured it needed time to drop and even out. After 3 months I was concerned and went back to my Dr. He told me to wait 6 months and we will re examine. In June of 2012 I went back and by that time the left had also dropped, my scars were riding up on both breasts, the right one more so. He said the cause was likely because I had very soft breast tissue, and little of it, also the implants may be too heavy for my body to support.
To fix this, the Dr. was going to have to stitch up the pockets top 'raise' the implant position. It cost $600 for the revision, the Dr waived his fees, but the anesthesiologist and medication cost me. I went in September 7, 2012 for the revision. I was VERY sore the first surgery, I took off 10 days, and I felt I should have took longer. I was informed the second one would be worse. I had to be at a new job September 8 for orientation at 9am. I know, I am crazy. Anyway, the second surgery is by FAR not as painful, the meds hardly help the pain, Tylenol helps. I went to work the next day, 9-8-12 at 9am, and am going for training all this week m-f 8-2. I am uncomfortable, but not too bad.
Anyway, today is Monday, post op day 4, and I am sore, but overall fine. I went for my post op check up today, and go back in a week to remove the sutures under my breasts. If anyone has had surgery like this, please feel free to email me. I want to know if my breasts appear normal for a surgery of this kind, i feel deformed, lol. I have trust in my Dr, so I am not uneasy or upset. I just want to be able to wear a bra/bikini without my nips hanging out of the top. :) Any input for Doctors is appreciated! Thank you for reading my story and looking at my photos. Feedback is appreciated. Please contact me if you would like to share stories or experiences, or with questions.
