I was always painfully insecure of my breast size growing up which was less than an A-Cup. I saved my money and in 2012 at the age of 22 I underwent a sub-muscular breast augmentation to become more proportionate at 34B.3 Months Post-Op, after removing the surgical bra, I noticed a severe dent that spanned across the middle of my breasts anytime I moved. I consulted with my surgeon at my final post-op and he told me that this was normal, and would resolve itself once the implants settled. I was instructed to allow one year and it should be fine.A year came and went and the issue was no less severe. Before going to him again, I consulted with three other surgeons. Each surgeon told me that this was a severe case of muscle flex deformity. It can be a common issue that occurs just under the breast, but because my surgeon had placed the implants too low- the dents went into the direct middle of my breasts. I was told this occurs because tissue adheres to the incision site of the chest wall, and pulls anytime you flex (which, by the way, happens basically whenever you move).I was told by each surgeon that it would never self correct and that the only way to correct it would be to re-do the entire surgery which would cost between $6000 and $8000.I went back to my surgeon and he said to me "I will only do revisions within a year. You should've said something sooner".I was furious, and devastated.He clearly knew this would never correct itself, and was only protecting himself. I sought legal advice but due to the time that had passed I had no grounds to take action.My breasts are so poorly done that I was considered to be on the show Botched, but did not feel comfortable being broadcasted to everyone being so deformed and opted not to go forth.I am now 30. I have spent all of my 20s completely ashamed and feeling deformed. It has impacted my self esteem. My relationships, and obviously was a complete loss of almost $7000.Being 9 years in, I am now noticing that the left implant is also now sitting lower.I no longer want to be like this any longer. I can't spend all of my 30s looking like this also. My original surgeon, Dr. Bruce J Cusenz, has since passed.I've started a gofundme. I realize this is no one's responsibility but my own. But I decided to swallow my pride and ask for help in hopes of feeling normal again. https://www.gofundme.com/f/breast-augmentation-revision-needed?teamInvite=NpmpVILuL9TVswMdsBLuiQBOeBoKnaFEf91fe1kcDHoZz0CmUq84gSLM6DBuMrUQ Thanks to all for listening
Hi, First time poster here! I am 26 years old, 174cm with Tuberous Breasts - less than an A cup currently. I have been extremely self conscious about the size and shape of my breasts for years. I have only just been officially diagnosed with Tuberous Breasts and was initially really upset but now I'm feeling relived to finally have a diagnosis. I had a consultation with Dr Luke Stradwick on the Gold Coast and he has suggested 295-370cc tear drop implants placed under the muscle. My only issue is that I have not had kids yet and would like to in the next few years. My chances of being able to breastfeed anyway aren't great but I won't know until it happens. Is there anyone who has been in the same position? Does breastfeeding after an augmention/reconstruction ruin the look of your new boobs?? Any advice and help would be greatly appreciated!
Hi Girls, I know I have been absent from the forum for quite some time but over the past few weeks I have been having some issues with my right breast in which I really would like to discuss; Has anyone had any experience with active muscle? My surgeon was hasty to jump to the decision it was only active muscle (ONLY!!!) but he didn't even have a look at it. When ever I bend over or lean forward a crease appears across my right breast separating my implant from my natural breast. It looks very deformed and ugly when this happens. I am now 4.5 months post op. It only happens in my right breast. Ever since I first had my BA my left breast has felt perfect but my right always felt not right. When I bend over it feels fluidy and I can feel movement which is uncomfortable, I still cant run or do any bouncing type exercise as it doesn't feel as stable and it also sits quite a bit lower and smaller. Are these things I just need to come to terms with & deal with or is this something that worsens over time? Hoping the crease or the separation between impant / natural breast doesn't worsen and that it remains limited to when bending over or flexing. Other than that im loving my new boobs and overall my procedure was an extremely positive one. Please help with active muscle experience ........Kxx
