It is normal to have some asymmetry between the breasts before and after surgery as well as during the healing process. 7 weeks is still very early in the recovery period.

Tummy Tuck PricingTummy Tuck
Hello Erica, Weight gained during pregnancy can be resolved through diet and exercise, but the stretched abdominal muscle and skin is most commonly corrected by an abdominoplasty or tummy tuck. Some women like the size and fullness of their breasts while breast feeding. Afterwards, however, they complain of sagging and loss of fullness. A breast augmentation with saline or silicone gel filled breast implants, breast lift, or a combination of the two can help you regain the shape, fullness and size of your breasts. I would recommend that you begin by having a consultation with a board certified Plastic Surgeon to get more information on pricing and options. In general, breast augmentation is about $6,000 with saline implants. Silicone gel implants are also available. For a tummy tuck the fee costs about $5,000-$7,000. I hope this helps give you guidance in your decision making! Dr. Ghaderi
I need help to relieve back strainTummy Tuck
Hello and thank you for your question. It would be best to meet with a board certified Plastic Surgeon for a consultation to get a personalized opinion on whether you'd be a candidate for a tummy tuck or possibly a panniculectomy. Due to your health history that was mentioned, I would also suggest scheduling an appointment to meet with your Primary Care Physician to receive clearance for the possible procedure. I hope this gives you some guidance in your decision making. Dr. Ghaderi
How much pain can you expect after a breast augmentation surgery?Breast Augmentation
Hello. Thank you for your question. After a breast augmentation, pain can vary depending on the patient's pain tolerance and the placement of the implant. If you've had children, expect to experience pressure in the chest area similar to being engorged or feeling urge to pump (like during breast feeding). If you've never had children, you may experience a heaviness like carrying a backpack on your chest. While pain medicine may be prescribed by your surgeon, many patients only take Tylenol or Tylenol extra strength instead to help manage pain. Advil or similar NSAIDS are generally (but not always) avoided as they thin your blood and may increase risk of post surgical bleeding. I hope this helps! Dr. Ghaderi
