I am 20 days post op and I feel amazing! This sight truly helped me overcome my fear... more
I am so excited that I received insurance approval and my date is scheduled! I have been on this site for months reading everything I can about Breast reduction and realized how much I need to do this surgery to relieve back pain, improve posture and be able to walk into any store and buy a bra! I am currently 40H and my doctor thinks I will be a D once done. Hooray! Is there... more
I first started having problems with my boobs in 6th grade as they grew tremendously from the previous year. By my freshman year of high school at 15 I knew I wanted a reduction, of course no surgeons would perform it. At 18 and a half with my moms help and support I got my breast reduction right before college started. I went from around an F cup to a small D (It's a little hard to tell in my... more
I cannot say enough about my entire experience with Dr Sweat, the staff at both of his offices and the staff at Mercy Medical Hospital in Sacramento!
After waiting months to have breast reduction surgery at a military hospital, my surgery was abruptly cancelled and I had to start the whole process over in the civilian community.
From my first phone call making my original consult, I was ment... more
I have to say that I never really thought I would do this surgery. It seemed scary & not worth it. From a young age (7th grade) I was already wearing a size D cup. Although it was difficult I learned to live with it. But then I hit 18 & it was hard to find any store that actually carried my bra size. Before I knew it I was visiting a specialty store & spending quite a bit of money just to have... more
Hello I'm 25 and will be having a breast reduction on November 26th I'm pretty excited to see my results big breast run in my family but i can't deal with the back problems anymore. After having my daughter the back problems have gotten worst and I went from a 36 D to a 36 and 38 DDD Now a H. I will update my information after surgery so stick around for my results.
Had a 4 hour... more
I have waited 4 years to have this procedure and now that I am just 4 days away I am getting nervous. I have always had large breasts but they are really getting out of control now. No matter how much I exercise they do not get smaller. I am a 44G now and my PS suggests we go to a 44C. Thank you all for sharing your stories..they are very helpful and comforting. I will update more after my... more
Hi Everyone - I am 5'6, 217 pounds and looking for anyone who has had breast reduction approved through Sutter health in Sacramento. What are Sutters requirements for approval? Please tell me about your experiences. Hoping to get this done in June 2014. What a difference it will make! Thank you for your help.
This is such a great site and great way to get information and... more
After years of chiropractic care, massage and physical therapy for my neck and back pain I am finally putting the girls on a diet (thats what my brother called it) LOL. My insurance has authorized the surgery. All of my family and friends that know are very supportive. I am excited and nervous at the same time.
Had my pre - op appt yesterday. It went good. My mother in law and hubby were... more
I am scheduled for my pre-op on June 21. I can't believe I am doing this, but the deposit I made says I am. Plus I have been wanting this for a long time, just didn't think I was the kind of woman to do it (whatever that means). It's a little tight, timewise, as I have lined up a conference, then a week in NY, then the surgery. 3-4 weeks later, a book release event and more marketing on that.... more
I'm 47 years old, 5'4 1/2 inches and 145 pounds. I've wanted/needed this surgery for some time. My family didn't want me to risk my life for this, so I chickened out 3 years ago. Today I am 1 day postop, having had my breast reduction yesterday. I was a 34H and have no idea what size I'm going to end up. Bandage and tubes come out Monday the 24th of Feb. I'm going to attempt to upload my... more
All my life I have suffered from the pitfalls of having large breasts. Back pain, shoulder pain, rashes, were all part of my life, not to mention, what I considered an unsightly appearance. Dr. Mabourakh, has done an excellent job of reducing my breast size from DDD to C. The surgery was done in such a manner that the scars will be minimal and all the symptoms that bothered me for years are... more
I was a 34c in my early twenties and as I got into my early fifties, I had morphed into a 36DD. They were a lot to lug around and I decided to make a change. I am pretty active physically and felt that reducing my size would improve my all around quality of life. The procedure has less downtime than I thought with not too much discomfort. I was back at the office within four days-being... more
After having kids I went from a 34C to a 36DD/DDD. They hurt my back, cause indentations in my shoulders and generally make it hard to wear the types of clothes I want to wear. I finally got up the courage to ask for a consult and the process was much easier than I expected. Basically they have to remove 400cc and it is covered. The problem is that 400cc could possibly make me extremely small.... more
I had my breast reduction on October 5,2011. I was so nervous in the months before. I am a 5'1 girl with 38F boobs. Way to big for my little frame, even with me weighing 160lbs. After ny reduction i wanted be around a "D" cup because while i liked my big breats, they were just to heavy and caused a lot of pain.
However, from what i can tell as of right now, they look to be... more
