Am I realistic in wanting a periareolar mastopexy?
Hi, I'm a little conflicted about my breasts. I've accepted that they aren't terribly unattractive but considering my age (27) and having never had children, I feel somewhat embarrassed about them. They are somewhat asymmetrical, with faded stretch marks after weight loss when I was 15 / 16, but what makes me uncomfortable is their droopiness. I'm very much aware that if it wasn't for my rapid weight gain and rapid weight loss as a teenager they would be somewhat perkier. I'm very much averse to the idea of implants; I'm happy with the size of my breasts as they are now (C, but on occasion a B cup). It's a little hypocritical of me that whilst I'm looking at plastic surgery I'm averse to the idea of implants - I just want a natural looking solution that reflects what I might ordinarily look like. For this reason I'm only really interested in a periareolar mastopexy (or a variation of it) - but I am aware there is a lot of negative criticisms of this surgery and not certain its effect will be considerable enough to suitably adjust the ptosis. Another factor is budget - I understand that a consultation is necessary to present a quote, and costs will vary according to each person, their surgeon and secondary factors. However I was hoping on understanding at least the parameters of potential minimum / maximum costs, if not a ball park figure. I have a very definite budget and won't pursue this if it is unrealistic for me - I don't particularly want to waste the time of myself and the surgeon pursuing a consultation if this is the case. Thanks in advance, Yo.September 10th, 2016 VIC
