Breast Reduction 3 Days Ago! - England

Hi... Im 22 and I have just had a breast reduction...

Hi... Im 22 and I have just had a breast reduction done. I had it done on sunday 18th July. I am already loving my new boobs!! I was a huge size! A size 34 H, Im only 5foot6 and a size 12 (UK) So was way to big for my small frame. I am quite comfortable and not in much pain. My surgeon is amazing, such a lovely man, made me feel so comfortable and relaxed, He really listened to what i wanted. I went private for my operation as i was told i could wait upto 18months on the NHS list! No chance was i waiting that long! I must say my care after surgery in hospital was amazing! Around the clock care, My nurse was amazing, she made me feel great, giving me lots of pain releief and support! Anyone thinking of doing this?? My advice?? DO IT!! xxxx

Hi...I feel your pain it realy sucks. If i were you i would bring it up to your parents but maybe wait a bit before the actual surgery. I was also a C cup when i was 14 and now im 16 and a G cup...they grew a lot in just a couple years and im sure you wouldnt want to get the surgery then be right back where you started...I was supposed to have my surgery on the 20th but some things have come up and now i have to wait but everyone keeps telling me maybe its for the best just incase they do grow more.

Hi I'm 14 and I I really want to get this operation but im only in grade 9 and my parents might not let me and I have to persuade them to let me because it will take me to long to raise the money I need. I really would like this reduction and I don't want to wait because I hate looking super fat every time I where clothes. I don't care what other people say but I don't know how to convince my parents to let me have this operation now. Im a 34 C and i am 5'5 but I feel so uncomfortable and have for years now. :( what to do?

Hi Kayley -- Just curious how you're doing now. You're about 6 months post-op, right?

Hi :)

I'm 17 years old and I had a breast reduction on the 11th of December(19 days ago) and I can truly say that it's the best thing that EVER happened to me.
I went from a 38-G to a 34-C and I am SUPER happy.
My surgeon was super and the prosedure wasn't as painful as I thought it would be.
The only annoying parts are the drains and the nausea that I experienced as a side effect of the anestecia.

If there is any girl out there thinking about having this prosedure done I would say DON'T CARE ABOUT WHAT ANYONE SAYS,IT IS YOUR BODY,YOUR PAIN,YOUR SELF ESTEEM,AND YOUR PEACE OF MIND...DO IT,DO IT,DOOO ITTTT :D :D

Byeeee

Today is December 26th and I will be getting breast reduction surgery in 3 days!! I am so scared.. I feel as if I will have an anxiety attack any moment! I am going from a 38e to a c-cup. Can someone please give me a pep talk? Or some positive motivation.

Hope your surgery went well and you are not in alot of pain. I was more uncomfortable than in pain. Take it easy and dont over do things.

Congratualitions Kayley! I am also 22, im a size 32G, but I am only 5 ft 2 and size 8. I'd like to be a C but i would settle for a D. Could you tell me the hospital/clinic you went to and the surgeon you had please? Good luck for the future!

I am about to have a reduction in a couple of weeks. Looking forward to reducing from a HH to a C/D. Not quite sure how it will look but i cant wait to be able to buy nice bras that fit. I am only 4'11'' and i have recently lost just over 2 stone in weight so that is why i have now decided its time to do this as the weight loss has also caused me to be very lobsided. Bit worried as to how much pain i will be in after, but i am familier with the hospital and staff so i know they will look after me.

Congratualtions, I am havin a breast reduction a week tomoro and am very scared, im 19yrs, 5'7" a UK size 8 and a 30G cup. My breasts are a fine shape at the moment which i put down to my age but are very uncomfortable to live with so I have decided to go through with the operation. My family and friends all think I am making a mistake but this website is giving me some reassurance. How long approx does it take for you to get back to every day activities? I am very nervous!!

Hi, Do not listen to people around you!! They do not know what it is like to have big boobs!! They will be quick to tell you your making a mistake, but if its what you want do it! People were quick to tell me how much of a mistake i was making, how bad my scars will be, the infections i could get...Mainly people with Small breasts told me this?? hahaha But i ignored them, and had the operation as i could no longer cope! I am now 3 weeks after y operation and i am feeling great :) Its the best decision i have ever made!! It took me 2 weeks to get bck to normal. ALthough i still cnt do physical activities, i am able to do normal things haha. But i still have pain in my breasts and i am still quite numb in some places. But my wonderfull nurse has assured me that my breasts will be fine and this is all normal :) I am very happy! good luck!! Dont be nervous xxxxxx

Congratulations! My swelling and bruising lasted about 3 months but no pain after the first four weeks. Hang in there. I went from a 40DDD down to a nice 36 full B and love it!

Congratulations!! I had a reduction 12 days ago too! Like you I too was a size H and now Im a D.. What size are you now if you don't mind me asking? My hospital stay was great as well. Take it easy and get plenty of rest. You'll feel better as each day passes. If you feel comfortable sharing, we'd love to see before and after pictures. Take Care!! :)
