I am 25 yrs old, 5'0 tall, 141 pounds and im in the terms of getting a Breast reduction. In Mid OCT i went for my consultation, everything went well.

Congrats on getting approved for your surgery! Mine is Dec 20. How did you choose to go to C? I'm 4'11" and ~34G. I'm a bit older than you (41) and I weigh about 10 pounds more. I'm nervous because I've always had big hips and I don't want to lose my curves. I'm so nervous.

Today i went in for my 2nd appointment which i...

Today i went in for my 2nd appointment which i believe it's called the pre-opp. The doctor came in and asked me if i had any questions for him, which i did. He mention it would be a "OutPatient" procedure and also told me that because my insurance is going to cover it , that it wouldn't be considered as "cosmetic" but instead a Breast Reduction/ Breast Reconstruction, he did say that some cosmetic would be involve because eventually they will have to lift it up a bit. They scheduled me for DEC 14Th i believe, but before going into surgery, i will have to go back to my Primary Doctor to re-do my Physical and Blood work because they want to have everything 30 days fresh before surgery! So now i schedule to see my primary doctor on DEC 4th, 10 days before the surgery, so let's see how that goes!

The Ps gave me my prescription already so that i can be prepared for the surgery. He prescribed me PERKECET i believe that's how it's spelled, he also gaved me some papers with the procedure and info on Breast Reduction in which i have to sign and mail back to them, and he also gave me the after care sheet for after the surgery is done. He told me about the drainnage that will be attached to me after surgery, but what i don't understand is, why do some clients get the drainage and some dont?
Hey! so exciting...some get drains and some don't because of the way the Dr's do their procedure. My Dr. told me it really helps with the swelling I hated them but it was necessary....LOL I looked just like u in my tops...I love my new size they r beautiful...I had a hard time with my recovery feeling better now but you are almost 1/2 my age so you should recover better. Just rest and have your stuff prepared! So happy for you...all the best and keep updating BTW I think you right on the size cause I squeezed into my bras LOL

Thanks for replying. How can i better prepare myself for before/after the surgery?

Now that I'm getting a breast reduction, I find myself starring at different womens boob's comparing sizes lol am i the only one going throught this? Lol
Before surgery I would look at other women's boobs all day, too. I even have a folder saved on my computer called "pretty breasts." It's all pictures I found online. You are not alone!

Question......how come some are given antibiotics and some are not?
Hey DD I was given antibiotics...but the Drs have their own way of doing everything I have seen so many different procedures on this site its amazing...I guess the saying goes "Theres more then one way to skin a cat" LOL
Reply
Drs are different but I think some people are more suggestible to infection for different health reasons and some Dr just want the extra protection where some wait for you to have symptoms of infections just as some use drains and some don't. Mine does not. He said even issuing drains they will swell after they come out so I'll have tight bandage for 6 days then go to support and I trust him because I saw a woman who he did hers in October and hers are gorgeous and she's in her 60s so I'm confident. If you have any questions ask your Dr. Even though I learned more here with these girls I also learned the questions to ask him and they want to answer your questions. They do it so much that they can't think of everything to tell you. Good luck your coming up soon. Il be glad when mine is done. It will be so cool to not be so big. I'll even sure better lol without these in my way. The little things. *good luck hugs *

QUICK UPDATE!!!
Thursday Dec 6 I went for my pre-op. EVERYTHING came out fine! Blood work, physical and EKG! Praise God! To HIM be all the Glory! Later on that day they called me from My Ps office letting me know that I'm cleared and everything's good to go and if I wanted to get the surgery the next morning, although that sounded wonderfully, I told her I'll just wait till next week because I already had everything scheduled and didn't want to rush! I got 5 more days until my surgery, and the days are going by soooo Quickly! =)
I'm so excited for you! very soon

I Love your last pic. I've been thanking God everyday for my new girls! He carried me through a rough year of aches and pains and as given me a greater reward than I could've ever expected.

Man that anestisia really knocks you out! I remember being the OR and bang fell asleep lol I woke up fine from it as well. I will upload some photos when I get a chance. God Bless everyone. Xoxo

This surgery is no joke!! Laying down is the BEST thing can do cuz moving around is just tooo painful, I keep having to get up to use the bathroom and it it soooo annoying lol my ps told me to come Monday to take out the drains =) those are annoying too
I hope you're feeling well. Today was a terrible day in Connecticut, and we're all reading about it on the news. I hope this hasn't affected you or any of your friends and family. That's the last thing you need after waking up from surgery.

I'm glad that all is well! For me those quiet convo's with God have really been a saving grace throughout recovery. They have kept me sane and have helped me to bounce back well. I'm only a few days shy of 3 weeks post op and i'm feeling pretty good. My major problems have been impatience and my overactive imagination. But he's helping with those as well! Blessings to you and I pray for a speedy recovery!

For those going into surgery, I can promise you not to worry about the surgery, needle and anestihia,dat is no big deal, I think the most important part is recovering, which suks cuz of all the pain and uncomfterblaness and having to use the bathroom is sooo painful whenever I try to get up. I can't wait to be over with the pain
Get better girl! Soon the pain will be over and it will all be worth it.

4 day post-op!!! i wrote a post earlier but it was from the morning! as of now im still doing GREAT! i have NOT taken any pain meds and Praise God i havent had any pain or discomfter! the ONLY thing im experiencing is like some light tingling, and some light numbness on the side of my right boob and everything feels as if there tighting and coming together. thats what im feeling! lol not sure if anyone else has experience this but i do understand everyone's experience is different. i feel a pain, from a pain level 1-10 i would say it is a 1 cuz sometimes when i move, obviously i can feel the stiches there, and there is some heaviness and tenderness but thats all!. i will keep you guys posted with more info!!

19 days Post-OP!

Today I went for my 2nd Post-Op appointment my Ps said I was healing very well! On My Right breast at the bottom I had a small tiny circle opening, which is healing very well, Praise God!! =) so my Ps told me to keep it moist and add the Bacitracin on it because it would heal faster when it's moist! But as far as that everything looks amazaing, the scars are healing really really good! The only thing that annoys me is that my nipples get SUPER hard when its cold and one thing I forgot to mention is that I have A LOT more nipple sensation then I had before without the surgery! Lol he asked me if I had sensation and I told him yes lol and explained to him what I was experiencing and he told me not to worry that everything will go back to normal in a few months, it's all a process which is fine with me and I do understand but I am very pleased with the work he has done and feel sooooooooooooo much more comfidence then I ever was in my life! At the begining of Sept 2012 i weight 158 i was thick and curvey with HUGE boobs!!! I changed my lifestyle of eating and went down to 141 at the beginning of my realself post now i am down to 128 pounds so it ALL worked out well.
Did you feel okay after two weeks to go back to work
