I had a breast implant removal, removal of capsular contractures and a formal mastopexy.
My Story: I wanted breast implants in my mid-40's. I had a lot of excess skin and thought that filling up the empty bags, was the way to go. They looked ok for a few years, and then age weight and menopause set in and they got hard (both breast had capsular contractures). It was almost a daily task trying to hide the size of my breasts, as it was even more embarrassing as I got older. It was difficult to perform daily tasks, they were uncomfortable and most importantly, I feel my health was compromised. I had terrible aches, numbness in my hands, unexplained hair loss and fatigue.
My surgery date was August 24, 2016. It was performed by Dr Neal Handel in Santa Barbara. He travels between his home office and his office at 9201 Sunset in West Hollywood.
No implants, YAYYYYYY and less than 3 weeks after surgery. I am so happy!
Went in to see my favorite team at Dr. Handels' LA office. I had some stirches that were poking out removed. Not only am I back at work, there is little to no pain. I'm still taking it easy, and not lifting too much and I cant wait to get back to the gym in 3 weeks... But, last night i slept on my side, and im not strangled anymore by big hard breasts. I love my results and will update as the scarring fades. To anyone who is thinking about doing this, do it! Research your Dr. Research, research. Ask friends. Be proactive. And, if you are in LA or santa Barbara, Dr. Handel is your man.
Almost 4 weeks
Almost 4 weeks. I've been using BioCorneum for scarring. I've been told that this is the only scar guard that really works.
My left breast is a slight bit larger, but i have good nipple sensation. The right nipple is still numb.
