Breast lift 11/08/2013

I used to have a very nice 34C but did not take...

I used to have a very nice 34C but did not take care of my breast before and during pregnancy and after breastfeeding my son for a year, I am now a saggy 32D. My son is now 7 years old and I am so ready to feel normal about my breast again. I have been reading a lot of stories on this site and I now feel more comfortable. Hubby was not on board earlier but is now ok with it, I guess?? The first time I talk to him about it, the conversation went as far as life insurance which completely discouraged me. The truth is I am so so scared of doing this but want it so bad. Had my first consultation last week, I don't think that will be my surgeon just because he was in a bit in a hurry and i left with a lot if unanswered question. I am going to another consultation Wednesday and I am pretty sure, that will be my surgeon based on all the great reviews I read about him. He also offer military discount, hehe 5% off. Well that's one thing my hubby was happy about. I am 5"4, 124 pounds and looking for something very natural looking, not huge but definetely not too small... Any suggestion?? On my first consultation, we liked the 255cc and that was the plan, but will update about the upcoming consultation and provide the doctor infos for sure and a more accurate pricing. Anybody used Dr. Kerr in Roung Rock TX. Oh, what's the day of surgery like? Thank you everyone in advance for the support.

Good luck on your journey! The day of surgery is actually pretty easy, as long as you stay on top of your pain meds (and muscle relaxers if you go under the muscle), and take it VERY easy! The first couple of days the chest felt VERY heavy, and it hurt to take deep breaths. Also i had the occasional feeling like my breasts were filling up with milk, it was so weird! Happy Dr. Searching!

I am answering this message because I live in the same area as you.. I have some info for you about getting a Breast Augmentation that might help you.. Have you decided on a doctor in our area or are you open to one out of this area.. I'm also curious did you get a price from any here? I have a name of a local doctor and he's very good but his price as is most in this area are high.. Is budget a consideration for you because if its not I have a highly recommended doctor here in the Round Rock area but if your open to someone out of the area I would love to give you that info which is the route I took 1 month ago I had my Breast Augmentation..

Hi Zmard, Thanks for your response, yes I would love to get any suggestion about the best surgeon, money really isn't my concern as long as I get the best result possible. Who did yours, I think I am going with Dr. Kerr but it is not 100% guarantee yet. Since I also need a lift my price is between 7300 and 8400. Please let know your suggestions..once again, thank you. I will update my status once I am sure of who will be my PS.

I think I am going with Dr. Kerr at synergy plastic surgery

Hi everyone, I meant to update but I had a rough two weeks. I finally went to my consultation and yes I will be going with Dr. Kerr because he is very reassuring and saw a lot of great reviews on him. I have also decided to go with Saline instead of silicon just because of the low maintenance. I don't think I can do every 2 years MRI. I might also be going with 300 instead if the 255. I do am a bit stress right now though, I went to my annual exam and my doctor said I have a heart murmur which could be completely innocent but she also think I might highly thyroid. Did my complete blood work to check everything and waiting for the results from my doc . I am also going to scan my heart next week to confirm that the murmur are indeed innocent before I schedule a day for surgery, please fringed cross for me. I really don't want anything to delay this as I desperately need those girls back to where they were so I can move on. As pricing go, my cost will be $7300.

I forgot to say I stopped my pain meds after day 4 and I didn't need that much during the 4 days... I did not use the muscle relaxers never needed it. I did go under the muscle for implant placement.

I see doctor Kerr is not getting the best reviews from his current patients... I chose to have my done out of state because I put thought into the doctors and decided it was best to go to the capital of plastic surgery Miami....of course California would work to. I chose Miami because I have a friend who had her B/A done 10 years ago from this clinic and she did awesom.. Ten years later they are still great. She has referred many friends there and all are happy... I had mine done August 2nd and they are fabulous.... I made the right choice and saved money... My surgery for the Saline was $2,800 and it's cheap because they do so many so like anything with volume the cost goes down.. There were 15 B/A 's done that day... Staying local here is just not a super idea... I had little to know pain and I'm serious when I say no pain... My friends the following morning were like did you have surgery yesterday? I was up and really fine.. My breast are nice and soft already " do lots of massages " and I'm so happy I listened to the docs recommendation of 420cc I am really happy.. I was flat as a pancake and scared to be too big but he was so right and I'm very happy with the outcome. You can barely see my scar and it's not even 2 months. Let me know if you are interested in info on this place and also any questions about surgery, it was the easiest.. I can't believe how great the experience is and at 39 years old I'm so happy I waited because I won't have to get my breast redone as often lol and also since I had children my breast tissue had already stretched, thankfully because I was so flat before. Imagine a fried egg

Thank you so much Familyof6 for the infos. If it wasn't for this site I would not have the courage to do this even though I've wanted for so long. Thank God, it is not too late..better now at 29 than 10 years later.

No implants. Just lift

Ok ladies, this is. My surgery is scheduled for November 8th. I have change my doc but I am having hard time changing through this site. Anyway my surgery will now be with dr. Dustin Reid in austin tx. After a lot of research I have decided that I don't want implants. Nothing against it but I really like my small top and don't want to be fuller. Just want to be able to go braless from time to time without feeling so self conscious especially in my night gown. I really do love the implants on other ladies but it is just not for me.Dr. Reid had been amazing so far. My pre-op is next week. This whole thing is like a dream. I can't stop thinking of everything that could go wrong even though I know deep down that I will be just fine. By the way, my hubby is really supportive now and is the one that is given me the courage and remind me that I wanted this for 7 years now. We wanted another child but tried for 2 years and has not happened yet, that's it what was blocking me. Since I don't know if it will ever happen, I am doing this now, give myself a year to heal completely and we can keep trying. If it happened then, I will be so glad if not at least I did not wait a lifetime for my breast lift and we have one amazing child, so it is all good. Now, no one knows about this surgery beside my husband. I can't open up to anyone, not even my mom. She will freak out and I will not get this done, which makes it so hard. I keep thinking, what if something goes wrong and they have to find out then? Oh boy!! How do I change my doc? Any idea on how to get over all the nervosity? Here are some before pics. Ladies, please pray and pray for a safe surgery. Hopefully my review can help someone one day :-)

I had my breasts done by Dr. Kerr 5 months ago! Best decision ever! 3 of my girlfriends have also had their breasts done by him and they are also extremely happy! I wish I would have had them done years ago. My best friend is a nurse and she said Dr. Kerr does the best breast augmentation she has ever seen:

Dr . Kerr is really great. I really likes him and was going to put my deposit down until I met dr. Reid. He is very comforting and for some reason you just trust him and feel like he is the right one . I also like the fact that he has a surgeon partner so it is 2 opinion and two surgeon in the op room.
Thank you Megan, Dr. Kerr is indeed really good and I don't have anything negative to say about him. He is very punctual with emails almost like instantly.

OH BOY, 2 WEEKS AWAY!!

In exactly 2 weeks, i will be under the knife. I am starting to really freak out, bad dreams, insomnia. I almost want to cancel but then I look at myself in the mirror...

MADE THE CASHIER CHECK TODAY!!

Since my PS is offering 10% discount on his fee if I pay cash, went to the bank to make the cashier check, oh boy !! once I give that check on Wednesday, there is no turning down. Up to now, I only paid 500 deposit and I could easily cancel...This is getting real, scaring,and exciting at the same time. Pre-op is Wednesday. Good luck to everyone out there having surgery soon.

Thank you Henny, it is actually funny because you have my wish boobs, I go from times to times to check your profile and I absolutely love your breast . I am not getting implants but if I was I was going with the same as you the 255 because I really don't want huge breast and yours just look perfect to me, believe me you don't have nothing to regret, your size is amazing and very natural looking.
Thank you for the kind words! I need to post an update. My left one still wants go all Madonna and come shaped from time to time and I have to shake it around! But I think it's actually because my boobs were somewhat tubular to begin with. And then I lost weight so I lost a lot of my natural tissue. Good luck to you!

1 WEEK AWAY- NERVOUS WRECK

Hi All,
So I catch a cold on Tuesday and my pre-op was Wednesday, the nurse did not want me to get blood work done since I had a bit of fever,so the pre-op was rescheduled for this Monday which is only 5 days before the surgery, she reassured me it is ok and won't be too late. She just called to check how I am doing, bless her sweet heart, I am well by the way.OMG, I don't like the way I am feeling right now, I am such a mess emotionally. Hopefully by this time Friday, I will be on the other side safe and recovering. The surgery center and the anesthesiologist both called to collect their payments but I let them know I will pay after my Pre-op on Monday. I can barely sleep , focus at work and I keep having these weirds dreams about something going wrong. I will update after the pre/op. Does this happen to everyone?

CANCELED MY SURGERY

Hi ladies, I am sorry to let you all especially those that wanted to see my result. I canceled my surgery for now. I won't get my deposit back but that's more than fair and dr. Reid and his stuffs have been amazing and understanding. Here is how I came to the decision: I was always nervous about the procedure but it really got to me when my 7 years old son and I were playing who loves who more. Me: I love u, son: no, I love u more. Me: no, I love you and would do anything for u. Son: mommy, I will die for, me: don't say that, I am ur mom and will die for u, u shouldn't die for me. Son: well if you die, I can't live anymore, I don't want to live without u, I will just have to kill myself. Right there, I froze and all I could think about it even slightly risking my life. I know the surgery is extremely safe but also not 100% guarantee and as much as I would love to have my breast lifted, my little one seems to be needing me more for now and not taking such risks makes me feel comfortable and ease at mind . Ladies, again sorry and wish you all a safe surgery and easy recovery, there won't be any regret for sure and I know you will enjoy the results to the fullest. My time will eventually come on day but I guess it wasn't now. Good luck to you all!!
