18 Year Old Currently with Size 38DDD - Cleveland, OH

Tomorrow afternoon I am going for my first...

Tomorrow afternoon I am going for my first appointment. I am nervous because I find this whole idea slightly embarrassing. My mom had a reduction from this doctor so we know he is good. I am thinking about having the reduction late June before going to college. If anyone has gone through this at a young age any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Surgery

Tomorrow's surgery day. I am nervous but optimistic. My new cute bras are what are keeping me hopeful!

Here's my last pictures with large boobs ever! Ah! Full of nerves and excitement :)

Hospital

Sitting in the hospital, everything went well! I can feel minimal to no pain in my chest. The most painful/annoying part is the IV. Waiting for the doctor to come by then hopefully leave soon. Everything is still wrapped up so I'm not sure about size yet :)

Home

First off, thank you to everyone who has wished me words of encouragement :) it's nice to see people are curious about my progress. I went home at about 2pm yesterday. Still no pain, so I was able to go to a few graduation parties. Currently wearing an old bra, it fits because of all of the gauze. Very little pain now, incision spots are starting to itch which I know is good! I am surprised that my breasts are so hard though, I did not expect that. Fluid in drain is mostly clear and very little.

The Hardness - I believe happens to everybody ! Just the same as feeling Engorged. My Right One has Softened Up - but still have SOME of that on the Left Side. I will be 4 Months Out on Wednesday the 25th ! So - It will take a LONG Time for it to go away. Everyone heals differently - so hope you heal well ! Sending you healing Vibes ! Give it all time and be Patient !

Good luck! Just had mine done Monday. I was a 36DDD before. Now that I'm swollen, they look like Ds. Hopefully they'll end up as Cs. But either way, I'll be happy. You'll be so much happier once you're through with this. It's totally worth it! Doing this between my first and second years of uni. You'll be fine to go back in a couple months, usually when college starts. I hope you have a speedy recovery and are pleased with your results! Good luck!

My niece had hers done at 18, and it has been transformative. She is a big gal, and it gave her the courage to embark on a whole new life. She is losing weight and is fully engaged in life now. I am 51, had my reduction 4 months ago, am thrilled, shoulda done it sooner. My daughter is a 34 G, and I'm trying to convince her to do it, she's 29 and nervous also. I hope she decides to do it. You will do GREAT! Go for it!
