New to This... Just Had a Reduction 1/27/12...Ebony - Chicago, IL

Let me start off by saying this is the best thing...

Let me start off by saying this is the best thing that has possibly happened to me besides the birth of my daughter. I'm 22 yrs old, I stand about 5'4 weighing 148. I have had big boobs since I started teething, lbs. Being big breasted has always been a challenge.

Even though I am an attractive young lady I feel that I attract guys for the wrong reason, my large unwanted twins. Before my surgery I was a 32H. Back and shoulder pains were THEE worse. Since I am a stylist I'm on my feet all the time and by the end of December of 2011 I decided I was going to get a breast reduction, it was so necessary.

Im the kind of woman that hates to be doubted so of course sooooo many people asked me why I wanted to go through with the procedure since my breast didn't look so large (with my clothes on) I literally had to pull a boob out so they could see how large they really were. The entire process went by unbelievably quick. My first doctors appointment with the PS was the 9th of this month. I know they say make an appointment with a few surgeons before you settle but honestly I couldn't dare to dream to have anyone else operate on me but him.

For my first doctors visit I had my neighbor accompany me and she was utterly shocked when the doctor began to talk to us because it was if he had known us forever. He was very pleasant and answered every question professionally. I was blown away by his before and after work, I knew I had made the right choice. My surgery was out patient which at first had me confused because this was my first surgery ever and I felt that they would want to keep an extra eye on me but now that I'm home I feel much better than what I did before I left the hospital. Even though I am experiencing a little pain it's nothing unbearable. While I was in recovery my mother told me that the doctor came out to her and gave her a list of instructions for my after care and what was normal or not normal during the healing process. He also told her that he removed POUNDS of fat from my breast. I went from a 32H to a full C. Weight has literally been lifted off my shoulders. I feel so incredibly blessed right now that I want to run down the street praising God but I'll just do so from my recliner :). If u ladies have any questions for me, anything I didn't cover please feel free to leave a comment for me and I will definetly get back to U!

Today I went to see my doctor for my post op. It was earlier than expected but my catheters were stuck and started to bleed once I tried to remove them on my own. I was nervous and concerned that I may have developed some scar tissue where the catheters were inserted. Once I got to the office the surgeon removed both catheters with ease and no bleeding. I was able to see my breast for the first time since surgery and I was pleased with the results BUT they are shaped like small footballs, lol... Is that normal ladies?! And also i'm trying to post pictures on here but I'm having trouble doing so, can someone help me please?! Thanks in advance :)
