Repeat surgeries? Please share your experience -
I had a nipple and skin sparing BMX with immediate reconstruction using pre-pectoral anatomical silicone implants in May. I am less than thrilled with the results and have tried to be patient. I realize that things have changed along the way and I'm grateful for that - swelling is gone, pain is negligible, and one side is more cone shaped so perhaps the other will join it! But ... I'm larger than I would like (went from B/C cup to DD), have lots of dents and ripples, don't like the general shape, and still have areas that are uncomfortable around the edges.
I've noticed many women on this site have had multiple surgeries and have a few questions for those of you who have:
Why did you decide to do another operation? How long did you wait to do it? Did insurance cover it? Did you use the same PS or go elsewhere? Are you glad you did it?
My PS stands by his decision to use the implants that he did. His only suggestion so far has been possible fat grafting down the road. Of course, my concern is whether or not that will actually help. I don't want to be bigger or end up with problems at the donor site.
I'm really not interested in doing any type of autologous surgery. I don't want the major surgery or the risks. I chose this original surgery so as to avoid further surgeries. Oh, well.
No one can give me back my breasts. Or sensation. And I look fine in clothes and even pretty good in a bathing suit. Maybe I'm being too picky about how I look naked. But I have to see myself a couple of times a day and am not all that happy with what I see.
