hey guys, its great to see that there are places like this where I can contact people who have previously had the surgery done. I am 20 years old, I am between an F and G cup size. My left breast fits and F fine, but I need to wear a G to fit the right breast. I have had big breatss for as long as i remember. At 15 i was  DD. It has now gotten to the stage where it is becoming ridiculous, I work as a nurse and the back, neck and shoulder pain is ridiculous. It has gotten to the point where I spend 4 out of 7 nights sleeping on the hard floor, its the only place I can find some kind of comfort. I am terribly moody from lack of sleep and pain and I think having the surgery would be my best option. I have a great support netork as one of my inlaws recently had the surgery herself. My parents are supportive, but worried about my recovery and aging process. It is starting to become possible and I am so excited im even dreaming about running a marathon with my new boobs:). (needless to say i cant do as much exercise as id like right now). theres a few things i am concernd about and it would mean a great deal if someone could give me some adivce. thanks girlies:) 1. im worried that my nipples and breats will be a noticable different shape and size .2. im worred that i wont be able to breastfeed 3. im concerned that if i have a baby in the furutre they will become huge again and not go back to their new size

It really is something you need to decide for yourself. I personally found that my large breasts hindered me and contributed to my not breast feeding my kids for as long as I wanted to. But if u do want kids, they may grow back if u do the surgery before. I think u just need to make a list of pros and cons and decide whether its best for u to wait of go ahead now.
I certainly would not give you advice about when to do the surgery, but here is what happened to me. I chose not to do this in my 20s because I knew I wanted to breastfeed one day. I had 3 babies in my 30s and nursed them all. I was massively engorged each time but really really bad with my first child. I produced tons of breast milk and I believe that my ducts were stretched beyond the point they could "snap back". My breasts went up one cup size after having babies but they were HEAVY and DENSE from the glandular tissue. I finally had the reduction surgery 3 months ago and although I could have done this 7 years ago when my family was complete, I am glad I did not have it in my 20s. I feel that now the results will stay with me (I am now a C cup) since I will not have any more children. I put up with the rashes and shoulder grooves and XXL tops for 20+ years, but that may be too much for anyone else! Good luck whatever you decide.
What did you decide? - I'm sorry I can't advise on your 3 questions, since I didn't have the same ones...I think a plastic surgeon has to evaluate you to give you the best answers re: breastfeeding.
