My experience with tubular breasts had many ups...

My experience with tubular breasts had many ups and downs. I started to notice my odd shaped breasts when i was 16 years old. I knew from then on that i would need some type of breast surgery to correct this, which i did march 16th 2010. It has been one week and one day.

My PS told me during our pre op consulation that one breasts would need about 25cc more than the other because i did have asymmetric breasts. My left breast was larger than the right. I had just gotten out of surgery and i noticed right away that he did something wrong. So on my post op visit i pointed out one breast was larger than the other he said that "yeah because one breast is shaped differently and has more skin". I didnt say anything but i thought to myself you knew this and you were suppose to fix the problem like you said.

I live in Vancouver and i flew out to San francisco to fix this problem because he is one of the doctors who is pretty knowledgeable about my condition and from what i've seen he does a pretty good job. I called Dr.R right when i got home and went over my concerns and i finally asked him how many cc's he used, he said 375cc in both breasts he also said at that time thats what he thought was the right thing to do. He also mentioned not to judge to quickly and that i should give it some time for my breasts to drop.

My big concern now is that they are obviously going to charge me to fix my problem, if i am still unsatisfied,but i should bring up the fact that before surgery we decided that i would have more cc on my smaller side?? Im confused i do not understand how he could not see that he should have stuck to what we discussed. UGH so annoyed with all of this. I would never get breast implants but my tubular breasts needed help badly!! and how it seems like i have yet another problem to deal with!

IF some one could get back to me with some advice that would be great!!

Okay so, it has been just a little over 3 months...

okay so, it has been just a little over 3 months of my surgery and my breasts have evened out in size more, alothough the left breast does seem a little bit bigger. The right breast sits a bit lower than the left and has bottomed out more. The left breast is fuller at the top and did not bottom out as much. I am assuming the pockets were made a little different during surgery. I can tell in my clothes that the right breast sits lower about 1/4 of an inch in difference maybe a tiny bit more. The nipple on the right side is quite central between the breast tissue where the left one due to more fullness at the top the nipple(areola) sits lower. I am a 34c/32d/32dd... like my breast size, but maybe in a couple of years go a tiny bit bigger and get the get the asymmetry fixed. I am going to be more assertive and picky to how i would like my breasts. Before i was happy to just get the tubular part fixed, which he did accomplish wonderfully 100x better than before now its just a bit of asymmetry.

San Francisco Plastic Surgeon

I would recommend him, hes kind and he did a good job of fixing my tuberous breasts. Im just unsatisfied and confused with the little bit of size difference im experiencing, especially since he could obviously see it and discussed it with me...
