What are some techniques to firm/lift my breasts?

Nothing other...: Than surgery. Gaining weight will firm them but not lift them. I can't recommend that though.

What type of biopsy is more accurate for large clusters of microcalcifications in the breast,
stereotactic core biopsy or wire guided open
surgery?

Open biopsy: is considered the historic "gold standard", but the accuracy of stereotactic biopsy approaches that of excisional biopsy, with less risk, less complications, less cost, and no disfigurement or significant scarring. It avoids unnecessary surgery. About 75% or so of all microcalcification biopsies turn out benign. Image-guided needle biopsies are the standard of care for a variety of reasons. ...Read more

What should I do if my 2weeks old boy is breast feeding for more than 30 min each side and when removed, fuss and opens mouth right and left searching?

What should I do if my 2weeks old boy is breast feeding for more than 30 min each side and when removed, fuss and opens mouth right and left searching?

Don't be a pacifier: He seems to be trying to use you as a human pacifier. An infant can get 90% of the available milk while nursing 10-15 minutes per side. If your baby is gaining weight well, then i would limit his feeding times to that. If he is then fussy and searching with his mouth he is just looking for oral comfort. It is okay to offer a pacifier, or other healthy oral toy for him. Best of luck. ...Read more
