Hi I've been wanting a breast reduction for over 6 years. I am 26 years old weighing 218 pounds 5ft. 9. I have a very great support system my husband and mother. My goal is to lose more weight, which I just lost 12 pounds last week. My bra size is a 44DDD. Doctor wanting me to get me in a D cup. My goal is to lose 40 more pounds, but very difficult to do with large breasts. I cannot wait to have this procedure done, mixed feeligs... Happy, sad, scared, at the same time, but definetaly going for the procedure. I have BCBS and have gotten approved in 2 days. I have severe back pain, neck, and shoulder grooving. This site is very helpful, and will keep your mind at ease and encourange and motivate you along your journey.

At home resting, very exhausted from the medicine and anesthesia... A total of 6 pounds removed; 3 pounds each breast... A lot of relief off my chest area, neck, and back..Thanks ladies for all the support and words of encouragement.. Definitely feel better, I will have to get a sneak peek of small boobies soon:)

2 days post op and doing well, still having trouble with being constipated, but was told to use miralax 2 times a day instead of once... No pain in the breast area a little tender on my sides due to the lipo on my backside.

I couldn't wait to shower in the morning, just took a shower to tonight..Due to the bleeding of the gauze and it was Hard old blood. My breasts feels and looks great!!!! A little swollen, little brusing, but my girls are sitting up high. I think when the swelling goes down my bra size will be a small d...with great support from hubby and my mother I am doing well...My ps did a fantastic job, and it was well worth it back pain free!!!

Today marks 3 day post op feeling great besides itching around the stitches... Trying to control it with Benadryl.... I can't believe how small I am... I think im a small d large c cup; when all the swelling Is gone. As far as constipation, warm prune juice has done the trick along with colace and miralax... I feel amazing inside and outside... Back pain free!!!

Day 4 post op and getting better daily...the pain level is about a 1, more discomfort than pain... Still swollen, just showered and air drying my boobs fully before I put the post surgical bra provided by my surgeon. The bra is actually comfortable than it looks.... I feel so much better with the weight off my shoulders.... I'm loving the new me, just have to recover so I can work out and lose my gut.... Lol question? Did any of you ladies use a gauze after you showered around the incisions and on the nipple? If so for how long?

Today marks 8 days post op and I'm feeling good, still swollen and constipated:( I hear a lot of you ladies on this site talking about arnica cream, thinking about purchasing it. I haven't been out the house since surgery, but plan to sneak out today and get some fresh air and go to targets and purchase me a sports bra.... Overall very happy with my new breasts; back pain is gone and can't wait to get into my new shirts without feeling awkward and adjusting my bra!!!

I just got back from a long day out. Went to target to find a cotton open front closure bra they suck with bras they didn't even have 1. So my mom and I went to Walmart and went crazy looking at all the nice bras!!! I purchased 3 along with the matching panties. Lol. I didn't want to get anything expensive yet until the swelling is gone.. It was nice to get out of the house today, but I'm so tired. In the bed I go!!!!

11 days post op and feeling good.. I had my first pre op appt. today everything went well... PS stated that my incesions looked great and I'm healing well. I have been out all day shopping at jcpenny and Ross found some nice bras and a dress.... Tired.... Time to rest...

I'm doing well today I'm going to see my ps I am 18 days post op and my ps used glue around the dissolvable stitches and the glue is a mess!!! It's actually pulling my skin off with it around the aereola and the T area of my breast... Not sure if this is normal or just a part of the healing process... But I'm going to be sure so going in today to have ps check it out... Have any of you guys had this issue??nim so disgusted with it all right now... I know it will get better soon.. Trying to stay positive:)))
