I am having a breast enlargement on the NHS this summer as I have a bone abnormality of the sternum (breast bone) called pectus carinatum, which was not noticed at birth and has caused a problem in the growth of my breast and has pushed them apart. I have been very unhappy with the appearance of my chest for a long time, not just the size but the bone as well. I looked into getting the bone removed- this was a painful, major operation close to my heart. Therefore I have opted to conceal the bone with a breast enlargement. However, I am very unsure as to what to expect and what to ask for. As it is on the NHS I feel rude to suggest the size etc I would be happy with but I want to be sure the bone is concealed well, else there would be no point in the operation. Has anyone had similar issues or had any cosmetic procedures on the NHS? Thanks
I am having breast augmentation in 2 weeks and my doctor is putting in 2 different sizes because my right breast is smaller. you doctor should have noticed that in your consultation. Mine did. Definitely talk to him!
