I'm a 26 year old with 30F breasts. I'm 5' and 117 lbs and finally decided to take the plunge after years of contemplating the surgery. I initially had a consult about 9 months ago by a PS that made me feel uncomfortable (seemed he was more interested in cutting than giving true facts). I was rejected my insurance and had no deire to pay out of pocket since I have significant neck and shoulder pain.
I recently found an understanding PS who gave the good and bad of the surgery and was frankly honest about his experience doing the surgeries. I got approved in the same week and am now faced with waiting on my upcoming surgery. I am surprised at my own apprehension given that this has been all I wanted in the past few years. I realize it is major surgery and am slightly nervous that I won't "recognize" myself since this has been such a big part of my life.
I am excited to be able to wear regular size bathing suits, bras, dresses, and tops and not having to feel like I have to hide my chest. Im glad I can read others stories and share my own during this period

I had previously rescheduled my surgery and actually had it done yesterday. I did it outpatient so my surgery started around 2pm and I left the hospital around 7pm. I felt incredibly nauseous but my pain level wasnt terrible. I feel alot better today, but still am in a little bit of pain. My PS initially said he would take between 400-500g per breast but told my significant other that he ended up taking a little less. Hopefully I am still not too big! Also, he didn't put any drains in, b/c he said I didn't need them. Not sure how common this is and why I did not need drains.
Right now, I know there is quite a bit of swelling so I am anxious to see what my new breasts will look like. I will be posting before and after pictures soon. So far, I have been walking around quite and trying to get my energy back up. All in all, the aftermath of the surgery was not as terrible as I thought. I just pray that my breasts are better than anything I could've imagined.
I had my first post op today and love the size and...
