Is a Post Surgical Support Bra Supposed to be This Uncomfortable?

I can't really comment on your question because I didn't have problems with my health and my implants. I only had mine taken out because I thought they were looking unnatural and they were getting too big since I started gaining a bit of weight. I can tell you thought that my mother had hers taken out for health reasons, but this was implants from the 70's so they were made differently then. Anyways, her health has improved since then and she's positive it's from the implants being taken out.
Having Labiaplasty And Smartlipo Done February 23rd and I Am Sooooo Nervous! - Cincinnati, OH

I'v never had labiaplasty but I have had surgery. cosmetic and otherwise. It's normal to feel nervous. I'm sure your surgery will go well and that you will be ecstatic about the results. I'v never heard anything negative about labiaplasty. You will feel a lot better after the surgery day comes and goes. It's almost over, and statistically speaking you will be fine!

It's been a week and a half now, and although the bandages are still on, and the stitches haven't fully dissolved, the bruising is gone and I can tell that they look exactly like they did when I was 20! I'm happy about that. Definately perky and a bit rounder (probably since I gained 25 pounds since I was 20)
It doesn't hurt anymore, but itches a lot. The most uncomfortable thing is the support bra I have to wear. I'll have to post more in a few weeks.

Hi Beulah, No I wasn't feeling sick at all. I don't think I had any negative health effects from the implants but they were saline and not silicone.
If you like yours I would think very hard before removing them.
I got the lift because my mother had also had implants (the silicone kind and they WERE affecting her health) and when she had them removed, without a lift she told me she was very depressed because her breasts were very small and flat and droopy and she wished she had got a lift. Also things that I read on the web and just knowing that if a woman breastfeeds her breasts typically become droopier. I would liken having implants in for 14 years as if I was breastfeeding for 14 years. I didn't want to take any chances. My surgeon said the lift was totally up to me. Why does your surgeon say not to get the lift?
Yes I am glad I did it, but it's only been a week and I still have the stitches, but from what I can see they are smaller but perky!

I had saline implants for 14 years and just had them removed last week, for the same reasons that you all are mentioning. They were too big, too hard, I didn't feel comfortable with them (especially now that I'm in my 40's) I found that I was always wearing baggy shirts. My husband (who met me after I had the implants in a few years) admitted that he never really liked them anyways.
So I had the explant with a breast lift. (1 week ago)(lollipop lift) the explant would have been free but the lollipop lift cost me 4000$ but I really wanted it done and saved up for it for 2 years. I'm happy now, and feel like myself again. It's a good feeling. I still have the surgical tape on but they don't hurt. The only thing that is very uncomfortable is wearing the support bra after. It's VERY tight.
Also there's a big difference between my formerly d cups and my now large A cups. I haven't gone back to work yet, but I wish I didn't have to wear the support bra so I could wear a slightly padded bra for a few months because i dont' want people at work to notice or talk about it.
