Overs to Unders to Hopefully Improve Saggies-NO Lift/possible Baby/scar Badly - San Diego, CA

Had ptosis-had BA (450cc metor high profile)...

had ptosis-had BA (450cc metor high profile) 1aug12 but i feel i chose wrong profile and my PS advised over the muscle coz otherwise he said nipples would point down (which i really couldnt careless as long as i have the roundness+closer cleavage, hubby is just gonna have to deal with nipple issue)-im not petite at ALL 63kgs 168cms so im mesomorph. My issues are: still sagging (3mths later was back to saggies! scar revision (raised), lifting my fold as i think they raised due to bra always on scar and sometimes uncomfortable. As Im MAYBE planning baby nxt 2yrs, dont care that i have to have another procedure after breastfeeding so LIFT is not an option YET, coz it MAY not even happen after all. Currently i get this horrible old lady saggy cleavage n i want the round upper pole fullness. so i was wanting to swap from over to under, and changing to mod(+) for the wider base to get boobs closer together, im not phased on the Bigger, id love 2 have smaller and have the round look but because i have excess skin i know i need bigger 2 fill, and the main reason im not keen on lift is because i scar badly and i would rather have bigger round boobs slightly lower than what i would like, than a lollipop keloid lookin scars which would devastate me.

Would love to hear if anyone has had similar...

would love to hear if anyone has had similar outcomes, im so up in the air about going bigger to fill in the excess skin and swapping to under the muscle for more support of the implant, and also i think im think of possible choosing mods+ for the wider diameter of implant so they are closer together . Anyone used Alloderm for extra support? HELPPPP!!!

Thank you for sharing your story on RealSelf. Your before and after photos show a lovely change, but I understand you're seeking a slightly different look. I like your idea of waiting until after having children to do additional surgeries, as pregnancy does take a toll on your breasts.

I found a link in our Doctor Q&A regarding Alloderm that you may find of interest. What does your doctor suggest? Have you gotten a second opinion? Keep us posted!

hi Beth thank you for the link and its good to know information, but i have been told that alloderm n strattice can not be used as a lift as such. From pages n pages of reading i personally think my pocket is too big for implant, and my PS wants me 2 get a lift-but like i said thats not an Option YET, if im having another child no point in getting a lift twice, so thats why i was thinking of going bigger and under for support... but unfortunately have not come accross anyONE with my situation positive or negative=(

Sounds like you and your PS have different ideas on how to solve the situation. Maybe a second opinion might be worth your time? Did your PS say your breasts would really change that much after one more child? Here is a link to a member who has a different situation, but I found the doctor responses to be helpful. Hang in there and don't give up!
