Breast Red 01b
45 year old was cup size B in high school-> size C early 20’s-> remained size D after first child-> remained size DDD after 2nd childbirth -> measured 32G 3 years ago. She has neck and back pain, and pain between her shoulder blades. There was pain at the base of her neck as well as pain in her shoulders R worse than L. her back always felt as though it needed to ‘crack”.
Before surgery exam consistent with 5’1” height and 143 lbs weight and brassiere size 32G. Grade II ptosis on both sides. R side was larger than L. Preoperative estimation of tissue to be removed 500-550 Gms on larger R and 450-500 Gms on smaller L. Insurance paid for surgery to reduce symptoms.
Surgery consisted of the “short scar” vertical technique. On the right 573 Gms was resected and 100 cc of liposuction contouring of the outer breast and to reduce chest wall fullness next to the breast totaled 673 Gms removed. On the Left 476 Gms of breast tissue was surgically removed and 100 cc of liposuction from the outer breast and lateral chest wall for a total of 576 Gms removed totally 2 ¾ pounds removed.
After surgery she had complete relief of her back, neck shoulder blade and shoulder discomfort. Her old brassiere under wires hurt even though the cup is real loose. Her current 36C brassiere is too loose. She thinks a 32 or 34C will fit best but is going to be sized for the best fit. She has some numbness remaining on the left side but realizes it takes up to 2 years for it sensation to maximally improve.
After photos taken only 3 ½ months after surgery. Scars will continue to improve for another 2 years and in most cases become pale thin barely perceptible lines. She now weighs 130 Lbs.
She very happy she had it done and very happy with the result.
