Hello - I had a breast reduction four months ago and am very unhappy with the information I received prior and the care following. I had complications where the stitches split up the front causing a large open wound with much pain. My surgeon (certified and good reputation) just kept saying it was normal and would heal with time. The fact I couldn't sleep, couldn't wipe myself, and had to call a crisis line twice meant nothing to the surgeon. After weeks of dealing with this I put my foot down with my surgeon that something must be done and the surgeon and staff rolled their eyes and proceeded to treat me like a hysterical old woman and tried to humor me. I tried other doctors and got the same thing. They kept saying it is normal and it would heal because they see it all the time. All I could think was if it happened all the time then why don't you have a better protocol to care of it. And a large wound under your breast is in no universe "okay" "fine" or "normal". It seems they get away with it as most woman after a year or so are happy with their new breast and it's just a woman and her breasts. I feel because 92% (13.9 million total cosmetic procedures) of all procedures are done on women that these surgeons need to start treating us women better. The surgeon I had lost 6 more procedures once people heard about my experience. We are their livelihood and they need to take us and our concerns seriously. Has anyone heard about a group holding PS surgeons responsible for care, maybe working on legislation, or taking legal/social media steps to improve our care? Anyone want to join me to start one?
