Correction for Asymmetry

Post by AL41192 on 8th February 2013, 12:24 am

Hi everyone,

I had my first NHS consultation with a plastic surgeon yesterday. He suggested I get a 185cc implant in my smaller breast (the left), placed over the muscle. It will be an anatomical implant. But he's not putting anything in the larger right side. Has anyone had only one implant put in? If so, how does it look?

Thank you :)

Hey,
I had both done, 400cc- 185 really isn't a lot, especially being anatomical, so in theoryyyy they should look a lot more even. Are you getting it done on the NHS? Your other option would be to have both done and go bigger but different ccs maybe? But that might not be covered by the NHS.
Good luck x

Yeah I'm getting it done on the NHS :) I don't think going bigger is an option, because of the left side being so small the surgeon said he wouldn't advise going much bigger anyway. I'm not really bothered about how big they are, I just want them to be more even because it has been wrecking my life (not an exaggeration) :( The surgeon said if after a year's time I'm not happy with the one implant, I can see about getting an implant in the other side then making the smaller side bigger than 185cc. But he didn't say if that would be done on the NHS.

Thanks for the reply :)

It should be if that's what the surgeon advised lovely but make sure you get that in writing in your notes!!!!! Once his words are written down there's no going back on it sweetheart.

Hope you get a date for your surgery soon and please keep in touch and tell us all about it. Xx

Thanks ladies! :) To be honest, he wasn't the nicest of surgeons. He may not even be the one doing the surgery, I've been told I've just to wait and see (I've been placed on the waiting list so I don't know where or when it's getting done as of yet!) A lot of waiting it seems, but hopefully it'll all be worth it :)

Of course I will keep everyone updated, these forums are so helpful and it's great to feel supported.

Hi everyone,

I had my breast augmentation to correct the asymmetry yesterday :) as it stands, I can't see a difference...but I know this is only day one, so I'm not getting ahead of myself. If anyone could offer any tips or advice on what to expect, that'd be great.

Congratulations babe champagne

The best advise I can give you right now is to be patient hun. Your healing isn't going to happen in a few weeks, its going to take months hun. But we will be here for you all along should you have any concerns.

You may find this thread [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] helpful also hun. Xx

Hey!

I had saw a psychologist at St John's in Livingstone, where I also gad my initial consultation with a surgeon. But I ended up getting my BA with another surgeon, called Miss Liem, at the Golden Jubilee National Hospital.

About a week after the appointment with the psychologist I was sent a letter saying I'd been accepted for surgery. It all moved very fast from there :)

Let me know how you get on!

Hey, ah ok. It really did move quick for you. I was referred 5 weeks ago by my GP and all my letter says is appointment with consultant Mr Telfer at the GRI but i know hes also a surgeon.
So did you get a psychologist appointment at the same time as you initial appointment? x

To be fair, the entire process from seeing my GP about the asymmetry has taken over a year. But once I saw the psychologist, that's when things moved VERY fast.

I saw the psychologist first, where I was also examined by a nurse, and had surgical photographs taken. The psychologist and nurse provided statements as to whether or not I needed the surgery. Their statements, along with the surgical photographs to demonstrate my asymmetry were sent to a panel (the panel includes plastic surgeons). It was agreed that I was a prime candidate for the BA.

I was sent an acceptance letter, and then a letter a little while later giving me an appointment to meet with a plastic surgeon to discuss my options. After that appointment, I waited around a month. Then came my letter about who would be doing my surgery, and where. I went for a pre-assessment, which checks your general health, and got to meet my surgeon. Your surgery date is also decided on that day: I received surgery 2 weeks after this pre-assessment, with the option of having it done even earlier!

Patience is something that is needed through this process: hopefully it will all be worth it :)

If I remember correctly, I went and saw my GP in March 2012, then received a letter to see the psychologist in October 2012. My appointment wasn't until November 2012. My first appointment with a surgeon was February 2013.

Yeah, I was lucky though because they told me I'd have to wait until well into 2013 before I even got given a psych appointment!

Hopefully you'll get some answers soon :)
