Breast Lift No Implant -Springfield, MA

I am 26 and a mother of three kids ages 7, 6 and 2...

I am 26 and a mother of three kids ages 7, 6 and 2. I weigh between 105-110 and I'm 5,2. Growing up I weighed 120-125 and had DD non perky breasts and large nipples. With pregnancy i was in a DDD however i never breast fed. I dreamed of small perky ones that for my body. I always thought I'd get an implant especially after my first consult a few years ago with a different doctor. I then realized I would be a full C or D cup since before my lift I was filling a C easy except for a gap in the top. I don't really care if I have upper pole fullness as long as my nipples didn't look at the floor and extra skin was gone. I also just feel funny about putting an object in my body. So I had only a lift I 7/16 a lollipop with only a inch cut underneath. Immediately I was upset afterwards because the looked shaped different. Since then they have evened out a lot which I feel better about but now suddenly that one looks so much bigger. One of them is so perfect I'm in love and the other one seem like it has more tissue and is pushing into my pit area more. Like the pockets bigger and has more . I guess that one was always shaped a little different and a little larger but he never really mentioned anything except it sagged further. He asked if I felt they were the same which I said for the most part yea because all the extra skin I think it was hard to tell especially since I avoided even looking at them. I understand I'm only 3 weeks post but I always need to have a plan B. I am very critical of myself and very anxious/ anxiety driven. I have been very upset about this and obsessive :( I'm also getting married in 9 weeks and going to Jamaica and just wanted to feel Super comfortable with myself. :( So my question is what do I do? I know I need to wait 3-6 months for more final results and to correct anything. I wouldn't want to rush into anything. What would I expect his answer to be? Like is this my fault or his fault? Price wise like what should I expect? A discount with hospital fees or Regular price? Free win hospital fees? I will need to save so I need a Idea number. I paid $5800 for the surgery before is it was $980 hospital $1144 for sleepy juice :) $3670 doctor. Also he is a plastic and reconstructive surgeon so I know he could fix this himself not someone else. He is a highly recommended doctor in the area and does more reconstructive then plastic

Trying to be realistic

So I'm trying to feel better today and appreciate everyone's comments. One is bigger then the other but I'm trying to be realistic that my natural shape is not even. One breast was bigger and wider and kind of slooped further to the side. He can only work with what he has! Before I had my lift i looked at everyone's pictures on yahoo and google and was like omgggg so perfect! Then now I go back and realize everyone has a breast that is bigger or a different shape a little! Mine really are close but not exact. I will address my concerns on Thursday and just be realistic about it only being a month the 16th and that I know some of the thins I'm a little upset about ( like nipple position) are natural to my body shape. I didn't get implants because I wanted to be true to who I was sometimes I have to pull back to my original goals. I would have killed for these breasts a few months ago! Another thing I keep telling myself to is that if I havea revision to fix size or shape it might still not be even or perfect! I could come out with even more uneven nipple sizes, position and size! Us woman need to not be so critical of myself. I actually was pretty happy and optimistic until I read about other ladies being critical of themselves! :) so today... I'm optimistic and know I look better then before and worse case I'm sure my doctor would do a small revision at an reasonable rate.

So sad

I just am so unhappy with my results. I cry all day everyday. Tomorrow I am a month post op and my breasts are different shapes, sizes, firmness and looks and I hate my nipple position. I have talked to my PS about a revision. He said a few things we can do but I def need to wait for final results because we are far from them. I have such racing thoughts and need to now focus on my wedding and kids and readdress this afterwards. My mom already said she will take a week off to watch kids in the winter and I can swing it financially even if I don't want to. Sometimes I want to go to a different PS but I couldn't Afford that and the one I have is so highly recommended. Waiting is just so hard.

Picture update 5 weeks

So here is my 5 week pic. See the problem! I have one great boob and the other one has just become deflated with extra skin and no tissue! I'm a whole cup size difference. It becomes more obvious everyday so m PS hasn't seen it for over a week and won't for a couple more. So in the mean time I just heal and then see what's next. I don't want to make my bigger one smaller so I'm considering implants or who knows. I can't leave it like this though

6 week update

6 weeks tomorrow. Today they look a little more alike then last week. I haven't looked at my nipples under the tape but can see them and I know one is a bit bigger and odd shaped but can be fixed. I'm tryin to figure out what is normal and I un normal for natural breasts ( no implant) to be different in size. One is fuller then the other which I guess it was before too!

Still sad and disappointed

My title is an understatement. I can't stand them. I have a follow up with my PS on Thursday and I will express how unhappy I am and why... Kindly but will let him know my true feelings. In a month I meet with another PS as well to see what he says. I will keep everyone updates. For now here is a pic at 7 weeks

PS visit today

I don't want to get into crazy detail but I had a PS visit today. Basically it went ok. I told him right away how unhappy I was still and showed him all the reasons why. He agreed about the size difference and said he could revise that and make one smaller. The problem is the smaller one is so small :( he recommended against the implant because my anxiety and all new problems. He also said he would not give me one for those reasons. He didn't seem to care I was upset about nipple size or shape and just kept referring to the fact they were smaller and better then before. I know that and I don't expect perfection but I didn't do this to be unhappy. All in all he will do a revision once I'm healed but wasn't understanding my concerns to their full extent. He was nice but maybe not enough compassion to how much this has upset me? I will be glad to meet with a new PS is October and maybe even a 3rd one to get opinions. I will go from there. My PS said to come back in 6 weeks or even sooner if I would like to talk more about revisions but I'm jut not sure if I can use him if he doesn't understand. I know I won't be perfect but I deserve to be happy with my breasts? I hope at least

Update 7 months

It's almost 7 months post op. I am happier now but not 100% happy. However I never am totally happy about anything! One breast is bigger then the other and it drives me nuts but it was always bigger... If I have him revise and take tissue out I have to pay $2,000 hospital fee and it doesn't mean it will be better. My right nipple "peaks" a the top so I am having that revised in a few weeks but its easy and free. He will just round it out a little. Other then that I feel normal but everyday I can see myself still healing daily. Scars are still a bit hard in some spots. It's def a LONG process. I attached a few pictures I took real fast.
