I have been heavy up top since about 9yrs. Been ogled by grown men and hated by many females... The expensive bras .. back pain ..but most importantly my recent weight loss of 40lbs has prompted the surgery! I plan on a more active and healthy life to have with my family =]. I have went from a 44DDD to what seems a 42 C

Moving along ;)

Have been back in the gym all week (elliptical,treadmill,bike) feels great this semi preggers belly will be gone soon! ~~~no boobs in the way while working out is Amazing!! Breast feel a little tingle her and there afterwards but P/S gave the a-ok. *wink*

Hey char im well all scars have lightened alot.... skin has closed all around breasts. The joy of going without a bra is unexplainable!!!! And still excercising now doing abdominal work at the gym using machines.

That's great Steph-Keep up the good work.... Sounds like there is no hick ups for you! Let's pray the same for myself! Stay strong and I will talk to you soon.

Tomorrow is the day! Still nervous but I'm getting excited to feel more comfortable. I realized that there are clothes that will be more comfortable, and maybe look better. I will be able to do more. Stephy, your comments about excercising so soon are motivating me! Find out at 3pm what time I go tomorrow.

Yes there was slight pull here and there and alot of bruising , but I had a goal at hand :).. But word to the wise REST those full 3/4weeks starting to move around to early will only delay your healing process (pillows,magazines,pills) lol

Would love to see a picture. I just took a bunch of "before" pctures. Going to buy my hibiclens today! Hoping I gave myself enough time; I go back to work Monday. I am at a desk most of the day. How was your activity level in the days after? And were you intubated or just IV sedation? I've been so worried about my size, I haven't gotten nervous about anesthesia...Vanity!

I started out a 44 ddd and am now a 42 c .. And no dr Lohner doesn't believe in any creams and gels. He promotes natural healing with at a certain stage post op a cream with vitamin e in (palmers cocoa butter worked cream for me ) he said the scarring aides are just unesscesary $$$$. He's very confident in his work , which now being on the other side I agree he's excellent.

StephyA did your doctor give a cream for the healing of your nipples? Has anyone else been given a cream? What are your experiences with it if so?

My surgeyy is this week with Dr Lohner. So nervous!! I'm a 38DDD...think will be a C after. He says 575 grams willl come out. Afraid I'll be flat!

Don't be. You will have more than enough left. My doctor took out 6lbs each side and I think I may be a small D, 38 C. You will be just fine. Good luck and let me know if you have any questions.

My PS did the same thing at 6 days out. I was a little worried about scarring but I dont think my skin was doing much better with it on.
