This morning was my second shower and it was quite an experience. My goal was to get some of the glue off and not to pass out... lol. I guess I can be specific for the people who are scared to shower. Here we go:
I got a few towels ready and put one on the toilet seat to sit on after I step out of the shower. I... more

For the last 10 years i have had to deal with constant back pain, not being able to find a good fitting bra, not being able to work out because of my large twins (breasts) getting in the way, neck pain, should pain from the straps digging into my skin, and just being super uncomfortable. My friend had the surgery done and gave me the doctor's name. Barbara Siwy in Carmel. My appointment is on... more
I have always had asymmetrical breasts, even since puberty. Having 3 children and breast feeding only made matters worse. I had a 2-3 cup size difference. My right was too large and left too small. After meeting with 4 different plastic surgeons with 4 different opinions I finally found a surgeon who I felt comfortable with and who shared my ideas.

I've had the typical symptoms: neck/shoulder/upper back pain, rashes, poor posture, problems finding clothes and bras to fit. I had... more
By the time I was 16 I was a DD. I remember massaging my breasts at night because I'd read about tribeswomen in a National Geographic magazine who did so to make their breasts long and tubular. I thought that if mine were saggy at least I could disguise them better. Now I'm a 32E and, at 5'9" and 135lbs, losing weight doesn't improve the boob situation. People tell me I don't "seem like a... more
I am 29 years old and my boobs haven't stopped growing since 4th grade. I was a D by 8th grade, DDD by 12th grade, at the age of 21 I was a G, 25 they were a J. I then got pregnant and nursed my child and was an astonishing L. I couldn't even believe bras where made that size! I have been done nursing for 5 months and at 29 I an a JJ. I am down to 145 lbs and can no longer take the strain they... more
To relieve the excess weight of large breast. Also wanted my chin to be more inline with my face and not have a double chin.
Having smaller breasts after having over sized one's for years has really gave me confidence. I am now losing weight through a program that will really change my body image. I would have never been able to feel confident to get in this weight program without the... more
