Different this time around

Surgery was a week ago today. So far this recovery is a lot better than the first BA. I've little to no pain. Just a little burning and zingers here and there. I'm able to sleep during the night. The only thing that sucks is the surgical bra. I have to keep it on at all times except to shower. I tried my rxbra on, but it didn't feel supportive enough. I'm able to use my arms, my doctor doesn't believe in keeping your arms by your side at all times. The only thing I'm paranoid about is i was not given any antibiotics to take orally after surgery, only IV during surgery. Thanks to all the ladies that have been supportive during my crazy journey without judgement.

  • Hi Jessica. I’m experiencing similar and my revision was about 10 days ago. Just some zingers. That’s all I had wit the BA as well but the swelling was more with the original BA. I had a week of antibiotics starting day before surgery for the revision. Had my pockets redone due to displacement and double bubble. That’s interesting you have no antibiotics. Did PS give explanation as to why?

  • I brought my RX bra with me and have been in it since. 24/7. They did say I could wear my bralettes or bras with no underwire - which I did do for an evening for a few hours. Otherwise have been in Rx bra. I bought 2 from when I had original BA in December.

  • Did you get bigger or smaller implants?

  • I am wanting to do a revision. I currently have UHP and want to switch to moderate or low profile with less ccs like you. My surgeon plans to do lateral sticking too. Are you pleased with the switch? What prompted it for you. I’ve only had mine almost 6 months.

      Juliane I explanted only 3 months of having my first BA. I felt they were to big. I was having some other issues too. I decided to reimplant because I was really depressed about my explant results.

      Jessica Did you ever consider explanting? I have been wanting to do something about my breasts because I have been unhappy since I got them (4/26/19 so I guess 4 months) with the size and profile. But I’ve been trying to decide if it’s worth a revision. And if they will feel better. Thanks for your input/ sharing your experience.

      Jessica what made you decide to reimplant? Was there a reason you waited 4 months in between? If it’s too personal, don’t feel like you have to answer! I’m just trying to decide for myself at this point if it’s worth doing a revision or if I’m better off just explanting after my not-so-good experience: don’t like the implant size/ profile, animation deformity, lateral displacement left breast and loss of nipple sensation of the right breast 😢

      Juliane I was really depressed about what I looked after explanting. my surgeon wanted me to wait 3 months before trying implants again to heal. so when I scheduled it I had to take the first available, which was August 5th.

      Juliane can you got to a different doctor for a second or third opinion.  Honestly, if you do explant I’m not sure I’d do it with the PS that you’re having issues with.  You deserve to be happy!!
