I've been big breasted since high school... even when I was in shape. I had the usual headaches, neck/shoulder/back pain, indentions in my shoulders from my bras, etc. I finally got health insurance that would cover the reduction, so I jumped on the opportunity.
I had a breast reduction and decided to go for abdominal lipo while I was on the table since I hold almost all of my weight gain in my midsection. I went from a 40F/G to (so far) a 40C/D, and from 206lbs to 192lbs. I'm only a little over two weeks post op, but I am so loving the space in between my boobs... not to mention the fact that they look at me in the mirror again instead of at the floor!!!!! The pain was nothing I couldn't handle, and I'm kind of a weenie when it comes to pain. So far my only CON is that I am having a little incision separation at the T joint at the base of my left breast, but from what I've read it's pretty normal and you're just supposed to keep it clean and use a steristrip or butterfly bandage to help ease the pressure at the site of the separation. I'll keep a watch on it and report to my PS if it gets too much worse.
