Breast Reduction Much Needed - Augusta, GA

I am 32 years old. I am from NC. I have had big breast since puberty. It was like I woke up and there they was. Having 2 kids didn't help either. I was always self conscious because of clothes limitation. I buy expensive bra to minimize my bra size $65-$80. I can't get the sexy bra. I have being consider breast reduction since I was 20. I am current DD but my goal is to go small C. I am finally getting BR because of muscle spasm in my neck, breast fungus and chest pain and back pains. Since I made my final payment. I gain a lot of nausea and scared feeling. I catch myself wondering what will be my result. I can't wait to be pain free and more option to buying clothes.

Well I have just arrived in Augusta, GA. It's Wednesday morning at 2:30am. My surgery is in 2 more days. I got a pre-op appointment on Thursday. Later today is hair appointment day. I am getting my hair braided since I won't be able to do it for a while. I am getting nervous and worried as I am in my final days.

One more day left, I went to my pre-op appointment. Everything went smooth. I have been having anxiety attack all day. I think the reason why is because realistic is sinking in. I am going to find something to keep me busy to keep my mind off of it. Surgery is tomorrow at 12pm.

Day of surgery, I didn't feel any pain because I made sure that I was stayed on my meds. I slept thru out the night. I leaked blood thru my ace bandage but nothing serious. I was very bloated. I was amazed that I had no boobie, they look flat but I wait until they are unwrapped.
Day After Surgery, I woke up sore. But still in no serious pain. I was more sore where he did the liposuction under my arms. My chest feel tight. My chest is sore.
Day 2 after surgery, I leaked a little bit, more sore then yesterday, my breasts it he'd like crazy. But I am overall fine

I am taking day by day. I got out and walked around a couple of stores today. I got tried of sitting the house on the couch. I needed the exercise. I seen some shirts but I wasn't mentally to tried on no shirts.

My ride from Georgia to North Caroolina was overwhelming. I was tired and drained by time I got home. My chest hurted like crazy. I took my
meds and laid it down. I am okay today. Just a little sore.

I don't regard my surgery. But after I had surgery, they didn't return phone calls.I was having some concerns. I had to google to find answers. I just found out that they charged my insurance for the consultation and anesthesia, after I paid the full cost out of pocket for all inclusive surgery. I will contact my insurance company becuase thats fraud. My insurance pay them.
Augusta Plastic Surgeon

The doctor had great bedside manner. He answer all my questions. He ask me what size I wanted. Then he told me what was okay based on my frame. His staff is wonderful and will go to the extra mile to make my concern or question is answered and I am satisfy. I change my surgery date 3 times, they were understanding.

The wait is definitely the worst, and the two last days before surgery I think is hard on everyone. I'm sure you'll be OK though, best of luck :)
