Hi all! I am 21 years old and am a DD. After spending my whole life being noticed for my boobs before anything else, and having boys call me "porno titties" and calling me "girl with the big boobs", I am finally decided to get the courage and got a referal to a plastic surgeon. This isn't something I decided to do on a whim, I've always wanted to do it. I've never been confortable with my breast and it has just got worse since I've been in university. I'm sure you all know how it feels like to go to a bra store, and basically walking out on the verge of tears because you can't find anything passed a D cup. I have never been able to get a bra that actually fits me. I am a 34 around the band, but a 34 DD does not fit me because the cup is too small. So now I have to settle for a 36 DD (because I am not paying 90$ for a damn custom made bra) which does not offer me the support I need. I also am going on a trip to Punta Cana in May for my best friends wedding... which really motivated me to get this done. I have never been able to wear a strapless bra..and my dress is strapless. I can't even find a bathing suit top to fit me. I am just so frustrated with these difficulties nevermind the constant pain and knots in my back and shoulders, I just want to live life! I am an active person and I find I have a hard time working out because it just kills my back after 30 mins on an elliptical.  Anyways, i have an appointment for Feb 21st. 2012. Now I am a student, and this is during school. I will have my procedure done during spring break, which will at least allow me 5 days to rest before I have to go back to school. I was wondering however, if someone could help me out and let me know how the recovery process was. I have read so many posts and reviews so I know the basics, but I was just wondering if women who had this procedure done could "put themselves in a students shoes", and let me know if they think its possible for me to have this surgery with no problems. Mostly, I spend the day reading, typing essays, going to class, etc. Are these activities going to be hard to do? I am going to try to get myself as ahead in school as I can before the surgery, but I just want to know what kind of movements are hard, or if you were able to go out of the house a week after, or engage in typing, etc.  I also will be getting staples on my incision line for the first week, so if anyone who had this done as well could let me know how it went I would appreciate it as well! I am very excited, but very terrified. I know my breast won't go down to a firmer and smaller size because I've lost 25 pounds, and there was absolutely no change in my breast size. I think this is my only option.. I am just scared of the scarring mostly. I just don't want to regret my decision. So if anyone has any words of encouragement or any advice I would love to hear it!!  Thank you all for taking the time to listen to me! I might have rambled a bit, but it's just because I am so nervous. I feel like I am defined by my boobs, and as much as I hate it, I just haven't known anything else. I always had the biggest boobs, i had size C boobs in grade 7 (so like 13 years old ish). I think I just need to hear feedback from women who have got it done already! So please help me haha!!!
