Waited What Seems Like a Life Time - Rochester, NY

I was an early bloomer as a child, started showing around 5th grade. That's when the "quiet remarks" started. By high school I was a D cup and the school nurse suggested a breadt reduction. From that day on I hated my breast. I am 38yrs old and have two boys. With each pregnancy I went up a FULL cup size and never come back down. I had my BR on 1/23/13. I was hoping I would be a C but I think I look like a full B.

I unfortunately have experienced wound separation. I don't seem to have an infection but it has separated so much that I am bulging breast tissue. Even though I am upset that it will take another month for me to heal.....I'm VERY happy I had this done. :)

Yay finally I'm showing signs of healing. My wound...

Yay finally I'm showing signs of healing. My wound area is starting to form new tissue. I only have to take one shower a day but do two wet to dry treatments with basitracin. I'm having a hard time finding a sports bra that doesn't rub. I'm sooo sick of this surgical bra. My PS said I'll need a revision in the future but i dont think I want to go through it. To finally heal and have to re-heal again??? No thanks. I'm no model so who cares about scars?? ;)

So last week I went to see my PS and he was very...

So last week I went to see my PS and he was very happy with my healing. He said I have made tremendous progress in two weeks. So he wants to see my in a month. I am back to working out my lower half on a regular basis. I took it slow the first week back but now I'm doing my full workout on the cross trainer. I can't wait to work more on my core...with the big girls it definitely stands out more but at least now I feel more comfortable and confident working out! :) I almost dont remember having DDD's/F's......almost ;)

Oh my what luck I have! now that finally it is all...

oh my what luck I have! now that finally it is all closed up and there are no threats of infection. I have developed Keloid scars! Yep those ugly thick scars. The PS put medical tape on them hoping to stop them from forming but it made them worse for some reason. I think I was having a reaction to the adhesive. So I stopped that and have been putting Kelo-cote on them. They are not only ugly but sore and they formed where ever an incision was made. I'll try to post pictures in a bit.

I know I said before I didn't care about scarring.....well maybe I do just a little. :(

1 year and 3.5 months post op

Although I have horrible rope scars I am very happy I had the surgery. I plan on going back for a revision as soon as my son goes to Kindergarten and I have time to heal in the fall. My scars do bother me a litte..sometimes at night I get a very tight feeling as if they are being ripped. I'm thinking a lack of moisture. I'm also going to see if lipo is an option considering my right breast is a little larger than the left.
