Well, I've had large breasts for more than half of my life. I've wanted a reduction since high school. I was seriously competitve in playing volleyball, but my boobs would ALWAYS hit the net! It became a serious issue for me so I asked my doc about it back then and he said it'd be better to wait until I had children. Well, I'm 27 now, done having children, and finally ready to get this procedure done!
I am so looking forward to having relief from the weight of my chest off my shoulders and back and neck. I want to be able to work out without the twins giving me black eyes!! (Not really, but they're all over the place even with doubling bras and sports bras lol) I guess I'm just really looking forward to a sense of normalcy with my body.
My surgery has already been scheduled and is in a little over a week. I'm getting pretty nervous... excited, but nervous. My pre-op appt is on April 3 and I want to make sure I ask him lots of questions that I haven't already asked. Dr. Wilson is a truly wonderful man and has been patient with me and explained so much already. We will do the final measurements to decide what size I will be at this appointment so I'm really excited about that. At the last appt we talked about a D-DD. I'd like to be smaller, but I also don't want a FNG so we'll see.
I'm hoping to learn more about what to expect post op from this site and things that I can do to make the transition a little easier. I'm also hoping that my husband isn't terrified by how they will look post op.
My insurance is fully covering the surgery.
I added some before photos!!! I'm soooo...

Doc is wanting to get me down to a D cup without a FNG so I'm hoping he can accomplish this successfully! They also gave me some arnica montana so I hope it works!
I'm getting more excited about the reduction but I'm having a little anxiety about dying. I know, it's crazy! I'm just not a fan of not being able to have much control of my body and being put to sleep. I'm sure I'll be fine though!
What have you all done to calm yourself before surgery if you were nervous?
So, today is the day!!! Surgery begins at 12:30! ...

- Day of treatment
The doctor had given me some arnica montana to take at my pre-op appt so hopefully it helps with the bruising and swelling.
I made dinner and washed all the clothes for my hubby and boys. My mom is coming soon to help out. (I love her!) She loves to cook and I know she'll end up cleaning my house AGAIN, so I didn't bother with cleaning too much.
I've been doing a lot to keep my mind off of the surgery so that I don't start to panic or think too much. lol
Is there anything special I should have my husband get me that will help make my recovery a little better?
Thank you ladies so,so much for your prayers and...

The worst part for me so far has got to be not being able to get comfortable to sleep for longer than 2-3 hours. Also, not being able to hold my 11month old, but he doesn't seem to mind much. lol
If I had to do it over again I totally would. The hospital staff was great and my PS is wonderful. I have a follow up appt for next week to get fitted for a bra. For now, the girls are just ace bandaged with gauze and sterile pads. I will try to get more pics and add them soon! :)
Today was somewhat of a better day. My incisions...

Surprisingly I feel pretty great. Much better than I thought I would. My breasts have also started to bruise today. This morning around 7 am there was no bruising, but by the time 12pm came along the bruising was definitely noticeable. I'm still taking the arnica montana so hopefully it helps.
Other than that, I've just been trying to relax, which has proven to be difficult since I am ALWAYS running around doing something. I need to find some good books or movies to keep me occupied! haha :) Thank you all for your support! Also, I've added some post op pics.
So today, I'm officially 1 week post op! Whew! ...

My biggest issue/concern right now is this crazy pain in my ribs. They feel like they're really bruised/swollen which is weird because I don't remember having this pain until this week. When I stand up straight and take a deep breath it hurts and it also hurts if I lift my arms above my head. I'm going to call him about it on Monday, but has anyone else had this pain before?
I heard about him through other women who've gotten the same surgery. He and another surgeon at his office came highly recommended in the area.
