Athlete Gets Breast Lift

Well,
After reading reviews on here over and over again, I decided to get a bilateral mastopexy. My breasts were saggy and had moderate ptosis with stretched areolas. I am an outdoorsy and strong river rat, hiker, yogi, swimmer, and mountain biker, so I was a bit worried on how exactly it would turn out. I didn't want to do any augmentation due to being so active and having to deal with them moving around alot on my chest.


I just went into surgery this morning (11-29-12) and am now resting with my family for the next 10 days. More pics to come!!! Heading to the doctors for a post op tomorrow where I wil be able to get the breast examined and in check that everything is healing properly. So far, I already love how they feel, it's very tight in the chest area and starting to feel the stitches on the side. Been taking percoset to help with the pain, and an anti-nausea pill to help with not feeling so sick with the other medicines. I am also taking an anti-biotic to help with keeping the inflammation and bacteria down.

Just got back from the doctor for my first post op visit. The doctor took off my bandages and smiled with confidence. He was very proud of himself with the work he did. He then passed a mirror over so I could see what they looked like. And they feel and LOOK amazing. So happy I went through with the operation! Here's the first post op picture..more to come

Day 3 and feeling pretty good. Little sore and still tight in the chest but overall pain level is low. I stopped taking percoset and now am just on the antibiotic. The surgical bra is so/so comfortable, it really pulls my breasts away from eachother vs. towards one another...so I might try and figure out a new system. Still very happy I went through with it, and looks like I can take my first shower today if i want. Can't believe how fast your body can heal and recover. Right now I am also on a juice cleanse to help with the healing process. Feeling awesome! Can't wait to see what they become.

Day 4 today, and took my first shower. felt great and really cleansing. Only on antibiotic still and continuing to juice and drink soup. Looks like everything is healing quite nice.

Day 6. I Went to the doc yesterday and he pulled of the steristrips and said everything was looking like it's healing quite well. first time to reveal the areolas and scars...they weren't too bad. A little taken back at first, but overall I was happy with they way they look. The pain is starting to go away, the soreness is going down, and the itching has started. But, it's a good thing because it means they are healing. So far, still happy about everything!!!!

I'm at day 12 and feeling great! Back to normal with everything but working out. My back is sick of always having to sleep on it but besides that, excited to be out and about and back to work. Breasts are healing nicely and not much to complain here. I'll check in at 3 weeks.

Well folks on day 15 I did my first yoga class. I kept it pretty chill and didn't push myself but it felt great. As long as you eat well and really pamper yourself for 2 weeks the healing process goes so well! Excited to see how I feel this week, and breasts are looking great! More pics to come. No soreness and no blood. Incisions are looking good. So happy!

Day 19 and feeling good. Soreness is down and range of motion is getting better. Scars healing well, every week I take off the steri strips and put new ones on. I think they are starting to heal nicely. Feeling happy and glad I did it!
Utah Plastic Surgeon

I had a friend do a breast reduction by this same doctor in February, so I probed her on how it went and decided that since Dr. Haupt had won 3 years of Forbes Awards for plastic surgery that he was the doc for me.
