I am 29 years old and my boobs haven't stopped growing since 4th grade. I was a D by 8th grade, DDD by 12th grade, at the age of 21 I was a G, 25 they were a J. I then got pregnant and nursed my child and was an astonishing L. I couldn't even believe bras where made that size! I have been done nursing for 5 months and at 29 I an a JJ. I am down to 145 lbs and can no longer take the strain they put on my life.
Yesterday I got a call from the hospital to...
So this may seem weird but I think my three year old son is aware my boobs are going away. For the last two weeks, he has been very aware of them. He's been giving me big hugs but he nuzzles his face right into them. He's also been a little aggressive at times punching them. He'll ask me, what are these mommy. I say my chest and he says no they are your boobs. It's like he has a sixth sense about it.
One more comment made to me by my husband. Can you find out how many women on that forum have gotten divorced after the surgery? I thought it was quite odd. He's nit the self doubting type of guy.
I started reading my doctors post op instructions...
I can't believe my surgery is 4 1/2 days away.....
An extra sport bra that clasps in the front
Pillow for the ride home

I added some more photos. They may be a bore but I wanted to have measurements of the before and after.
So it's 10:45p on Tuesday and I can't sleep. My...
Well I did not come out of surgery well due to the...
Four days after surgery and I am amazed at how...
I was on pain meds till Saturday morning and I feel much better now that I am off. They made me nauseous and a little loopy. Now Im just on 2 extra strength tylenol (500mg each) and not taking every six hours. Maybe 2x per day.
Sleeping sucks. I am so sick of sleeping on my back. I was a stomach sleeper and can't wait till I can sleep on my stomach again.
Bruising and sores are healing nicely. I was able to take my first shower yesterday and it was amazing.
I am so pleased with my new boobs and can't wait for them to heal so I can really enjoy them. My doc told my support team she took over a little more than a pound from each side. I look like I'm a D right now so hopefully after swelling is done I will be a C. I don't go for the first follow up until Thursday. My doc did not do drains so I didn't have to endure that painful event.
I LOVE MY NEW BOOBS!!! So I am 12 days post op...
My PS said I was a little more swollen and bruised then she would have liked and I have a blood blister on the right side where it comes together. She said it's really not a big deal just to make sure once it pops I keep ointment on it. The nurse cut the out stitches and put pink kinesio tape on the swollen part. She gave me the go ahead to pick up my daughter (20 lbs) but can't pick up my three y/o. He's a little jealous of her now. My next appointment is July 19th. Hopefully, she'll give me the "all clear" to go swimming!
So three weeks have passed now and I still am in...
A couple things that I've gone through. Between 16-18 days post. I had the sensation of "let down". Not in my emotions but as it felt like I was nursing again. It was the strangest thing. I swear I was going to start leaking :) I've also startede to get sore at the incisions and there are hard masses under them. I am assuming it is scar tissue building up but it's sore still. Any suggestions? ideas?
My wounds are healing nicely although it still looks bad because of the blood under the glue. On the spots where the glue has come off is amazing. I don't think my scar lines are going to be bad at all.
The most difficult part has been the 100 degree weather and no swimming! Are you kidding me? I just want to swim in the pool with my kiddos.
Hi! my name is Bambi and I am a BATHING SUIT...
The glue is still coming off and the scars look amazing. I can't wait for it all to come off.
The scar tissue has been the worst pain, in reference to pain. My son laid his head back on me and you would have tnought I just had exploded. I about threw him off my lap.
Oh and I went and got sized at a specialty bra shop.. That was a bit of a disappointment :( She said I was a 30G....really!?!? I thought I was supposed to have had a reduction (tear), at least I'm perky. She did say if I were to shop in a normal store I could probably buy a 34DDD and be okay with it.
I got my surgery statement...the one that says THIS IS NOT A BILL... The total cost for the $22,767.00. That was hospital room, anthesia, the surgery, meds, etc. and then my member responsibility says $568.00 That would be less then we thought, Just waiting for the final Amount Owed.
Thanks for listening to my rant tonight.
I had my 5 week check up on 7/19 and got the go...
Well the next time I am scheduled to see the PS is when the scars are no longer red. She said this could take 6-18 months depending on how my skin heals. I will be updating pics a little less often but I love seeing the changes.
I must saw this surgery was such an easy, painless surgery. I will be/am recommending it to anyone who will listen. I also love showing the masterpiece my PS has created.
Dr. Siwy is a miracle worker. Well, maybe it just feels that way to me. If you're looking for a doctor to hold your hand through the process she would not be for you. But if you want a smart, no non-sense kinda of woman, then she is it. She is so technical but puts it in terms that can be understood.
