    Roll call - Surgery Dates for 2018!

    Congratulations on your new bod @ARKlove 🎉 sucks that you haven’t had much sleep though, I hope you get some decent sleep soon 😊 I would love to get my tummy done too, after 4 kids there is excess skin that no amount of exercise or diet can rectify. Are you in a lot of pain? Good luck @Ally awaits boobs, you’ll have new and improved tatas before the end of that day, how exciting!!

    Roll call - Surgery Dates for 2018!

    So I made it out the other side lol Surgery was about 6 hours long. I had muscle separation repair, umbilical hernia repair, tummy tuck and breast aug. I’m a tummy sleeper and don’t use a pillow so I’ve only managed 30 mins sleep over night. I haven’t seen my body properly yet but my tummy looks flat and my boobs look huge!! They feel like they are up around my chin. The size is freaking me out a bit 😬

    If you rather come out too big than too small, then you’ll be fine 😄 Let us know how you go!

    Roll call - Surgery Dates for 2018!

    @JD* congrats! You must be so excited!!! So I'm 2 1/2 weeks post op and just got the go ahead to start lower body workouts next week. I went to get sized for a new sports bra/normal bras and I measured a 10E 🤣 I'm extremely happy as that was my requested size, but also a bit worried that they might actually turn out bigger than expected after D & F.... 10F is not a usual size found in stores... I also looked massive in underwire bras which I can wear in 2 weeks but I think I'll pass on them for now as I prefer the look and feel of wireless bras both pre-op and post op, wired bras are such torture contraptions 😐

    Sorry to chip in so late but glad you got to speak to your surgeon and get an appointment getting an ultrasound will give you some idea of what is going on before you see your surgeon. Please let us know how you go and hoping it's nothing to seirous.

    Tuberous breast surgury

    An areola reduction and implants without being able to show you results from a similar patient is a massive warning sign. You really need to see someone who is very experienced in this area. Are the other two surgeons you mentioned experienced? I’ve never heard of them.

    Supportive bra at night

    I’m a year on and still wear my post surgery bra. Surgeon has attributed this to why they have retained shape so well over the year

    Supportive bra at night

    When I just had my post reduction i used to wear my old bras. Each surgeon has different recommendations for his or her patients. My good doctor Dr Rino Lorenzo adviced me to wear my old bras. Although the cups will be too big, there is plenty of room for dressings and the band around will fit as it did before surgery. Then, when there is drainage and the bra gets dirty, it can be thrown out--which was going to happen anyway. Right now my result look good and I feel better more than ever. I just love it!

    Bottoming Out and Pain

    I'm sorry you are having to deal with this. I think it is unreasonable to expect you to wait 12 months for a revision. There is an obvious complication that will not improve over time and is causing you pain. What is your surgeons revision policy? If he won't help then I'd be looking elsewhere for support. I hope you can resolve this quickly.

    Bottoming Out and Pain

    who was your surgeon? I would be inclined to post pictures in the Q&A section of the forum for another surgeon to at least provide an opinion. You dont need to live with someone for 12 months just because your surgeon wants you to have PHI coverage before he will re operate. Maybe even an opinion from one of the surgeons here will be some ammo for you to say oh heyyy......not cool or something like that

    Bottoming Out and Pain

    Hi pinkFriday, did he say what is causing the pain? I would be pushing for more to be done. That sounds unreasonable to be putting up with pain for 12 months. would you consider a second opinion from another surgeon?

    Bottoming Out and Pain

    My surgeon was Mark Ashton. I got a reply today and he says that the reason I have to wait 12 months is because I don't have insurance to cover the hospital and implant fees. I've already paid over $20k. It's not just aesthetics but it's my health and pain. I'm over the muscle now, but before I was under the muscle.
