I'm 19 years old and just recently had my breast reduction on January 3rd! I was a 34DD and was hoping to go down to a C - cup. I had never been able to fit in the cute tops that all my friends could and my size was starting to hurt my back.

When I went into my consultation, my surgeon was very quick with me in answering questions and explaining everything. He had asked me what size I wanted to go down to after he had already marked me up? I don't know if thats normal? But like I said he was very quick with everything it was almost uncomfortable. But I had been on the waiting list since I was 16 and wasn't about to turn it down.

After the surgery I just slept for 2 days waking up every 4-6 hours to talk my pain killers. After 3 days I attempted to have a shower and almost passed out a couple times. It was a long process, but it got easier the second time I did it. I took my tape off a couple days ago because it wasn't coming off on its own. I just genetly peeled it off after a shower.

I'm not sure what to think. I don't feel as though I'm that much smaller... They were really swollen and yellow a couple days after the surgery and they have gone down quite a bit but I still feel really big.. and almost as though they are saggier now that the swelling has gone down. My nipples look too low to me and I have small "dog ears" (fat pouches on the end of scars) along my bottom scars.

My nipples aren't symmetrical and the scar under my left breast is on the crease but the scar on the right is above the crease. I'm not sure what to think. I don't want to go through with another surgery and I think that's the only way to correct the problems... or maybe they're still swollen and thats why they're so big? I don't know.

For the past week I've been rubbing Bio-Oil along the my scars, and I don't know if its all in my head...but I actually feel like its been helping! I'm starting to like them a little more ..although the symmetry of my nipples is still bothering me...

Hopefully they even out a little more. I know they could possibly still be pretty swollen. (Although I don't know if I want them to decrease much more because I'm afraid they'll start to sag).

I just started hot yoga again. Some stretches I can't do- but it feels good to do some type of exercise since I can't run yet. Has anyone else done yoga after their surgeries? I don't know if its safe to do it or not I just assumed since my incisions aren't open anymore that it was okay to start going again.

Love them!!!!! Ive been massaging the scars a little and I think its helping. They're still slightly bigger than what I was hoping but they have evened out a lot and I am so happy with my decision!!!! I look so much better in all my clothes. I went bra shopping a couple weeks ago and I'm officially a 34C! I almost cried I was so happy
