    Question Breast Lift.. anyone have info..

    Hi, I recently had a beautiful baby girl. SHe's almost a year old now. And I do plan to have another baby. After the 2nd one I know I'm really going to want to have something done with the boobs. I already hate how they look. I have always been bigger in the chest and after breast feeding my breasts are now... shall we say a little lower and the skin feels very stretched. I'm guessing a lift will be in order if not also a reduction.

    Anyway, I'm wondering if anyone here has had a simular situation and had something done to fix them? If so how did it go? What did you have done? And were you happy with the results?

    Thanks!

    Hey, I'm in the same boat! I had my daughter 8 years ago and I was SOOOO perky before pregnancy and now I'm really not too pleased with the way my bust looks. It's really debilitating (sp?) for me. I won't even let my fiance (whom I've been with for almost 6 years) look at me without my clothes on; I'm really embarrassed because someone my age (25) should have cute, perky ones and I can literally hold a few pens and pencils underneath mine! I think I would get the lift; I was thinking about the augmentation w/ the lift, but I'm not so sure I want a foreign object suspended in my chest.

    I'm VERY hesitant about implants to. I just don't like the idea of them. I also have no problem with my size it's the perkyness or lake there of and the feel of the loose skin. Bleck! I'm only 28 so I know what you mean about not feeling your age in the boob department.

    Oh please. what is "normal?" breasts are going to sag eventually. normal breasts for a woman with kids are saggy. some women with no kids are saggy. I have no problem with those wanting a breast lift, but there is nothing abnormal about the results of natural gravity.

    I understand COMPLETELY that gravity will eventually take place & I COMPLETELY understand that women with kids "naturally" have saggy breasts. I was simply stating that I, personally, don't like it & it bothers me.

    Re: Breast Lift.. anyone have info..

    dianabarry, I understand that you are just stating the facts of the life of breast, but you really don't have to be so harsh. Some women are more in tuned/worried/occupied with their bodies than others.
    I'm 19 and I'm also 7 mos pregnant. I really can't remember my breast ever being perky if they have been before. My breast have been on the saggy side since I started paying attention to them. And now that I'm prego, my breast are larger, the areola are much darker and bigger, and my breasts still sag. I'm thinking of having a breast lift in the future too because I just don't like the appearance of them for myself. I'd like to have, not perky, but at least breast that are alive and not dead. My only fear is that they will flatten and sag more (so wish me luck that they don't, lol). Now, I think that some surgeries are just over the line myself (like that one guy that had calf implants, or those women with 42WWW implants ), but having a simple breast lift is cool with me, even a small implant to enhance the breast a little more (but I wouldn't get those). So, I say Kim, if you want it, really want it, and have done all of the research and weighed your options, you should get them. Good luck!!!

    I, personally, would get the lift before I would have the implants. If I knew that there were no side effects what-so-ever, then I would DEFINITELY get a bad a$$ pair along with the lift .

    I think I'm the same way...if there were no side effects, I'd get a pair too. My only thing is how they would feel, you know: how giggly, how stiff, how much they'd float in the water, lol. I wouldn't want some hard ol' floatation bubbles hanging from my chest. That's why I'm hoping to keep my size and maybe get a breast lift later.

    I think that's the route I'm going to go - the lift. I would like to wait until I'm sure that I'm not going to have anymore kids. I would hate to get the lift and then get pregnant again and have to start all over!

    I had a breast lift and it made my breast look mad perkier. for a while it looked like I did get imlants! My advice would be to get the lift done alone first. see how you like it when you heal up. I've heard so many horror stories about people with implants getting all sorts of weird illnesses. i think you'll be really pleased and natural looking with just a lift

    How was the scarring? The only thing I'm worried about with the lift is losing any and/or all sensation . Did you experience anything bad from the surgery? What was your cup size before the surgery & what is it now?

    Not to get to personal or anything but what cup size were you before surgery? Had you had kids? How was your skin before and after surgery? I'm just trying to figure out if it's right for me.

    Thanks!

    Re: Breast Lift.. anyone have info..

    Actually, I'd like to know the same thing...does your cup size change? I've seen surgeons on television do different types of incisions. What type did they do and where did they remove the skin from.

    Yeah, I know that we're bombarding you with questions, but the best way to find out is to ask right?

    Re: Breast Lift.. anyone have info..

    I had a breastlift in November 2002, and I am very pleased with my results. I had VERY saggy, stretched out 36C's and I got a vertical (lollipop) lift with an areola reduction. My breasts were saggy even before I had my two children, so they look prettier now than when I was a teenager. My PS used a variation of the "LeJour" technique and the loose skin was removed and internal sutures were used to "sculpt" the breast. Don't get me wrong; I don't look like a Playboy model or anything - but this is 100% better than they were before. I was "on the fence" about implants, but I am glad now that I didn't get them. If you decide to get the lift, just make sure that your surgeon is very experienced in lifts without augmentation. Not all lifts are equal, and this is a procedure that requires real artistry in addition to great technique. Ask to see pictures of lifts he/she has done, and also bring pictures of the look you hope to achieve. Realistic expectations are key. Good luck to you!
