Hi! I'm hoping for some guidance from some of the BR vets around here. I had a BR on 2/14/12...yes, Valentine's day! I went from a DD+, down to a full B/small C. I haven't been fitted for a bra, YET (that's the scary part for me!). I guess I didn't realize the emotions that you would go through in having a BR. I was a D cup in junior high and my boobs ALWAYS sagged. Since the surgery I have had bouts of glee and bouts of depression. My problem, as the swelling goes down, I feel like my boobs are hanging more than I wanted, and my nipples are too low. I am going back to my doc on 4/5 because I have a hard spot in my right boob that she thinks is an internal stitch, but I didn't know if I should express my feelings about my BR and not being sure if I'm happy. Granted, I'm elated not to be the size I was before te BR, but they don't look like what I thought our goal was. I had made it quite clear that I didn't want to have banana boobs (or elf shoe boobs...love the mental image, ha) and while they aren't true banana shaped boobs, they aren't as full on top as I was expecting. Anyone have any advice or knowledge they could share? Tonight's a low night, I've cried a little, but I'm hoping it'll get better.
