I'm 5'7" and weigh(ed) about 140... size 32F bras were growing tight on me and my breasts just didn't match the rest of my body. I could hide three fingers beneath the sagging and had lost fat on my shoulders from the bras digging in. It was bad enough that insurance covered approximately 90% of the costs. I had the procedure done a few days ago and I can already tell that it was a great decision. I feel lighter, my lower back feels better, and I feel more confident, even in the surgical bra. I have J shaped scars rather than the traditional anchor-shaped. Once I've healed a bit, I plan to come back and add before and after pictures.
Adding pre- and post- op pictures
I see my doctor today for my first post-op check-up! We're removing the ends of the sutures and doing a general check-in. Here are some before and after pictures. Once the incisions heal, I'll add the "final" product!
Got the surgical tape off!
I'm thrilled with the results. The scars are much smaller than I expected and are getting less noticeable every week. As you can see, my right incision is giving me some problems, I think it's a minor infection but my doctor says it's nothing to worry about. In the meantime, I'm rubbing Bio-Oil on twice a day. I see my doctor again on Tuesday, I'll keep y'all updated!
Having a hard time

Well I won't lie, I'm pretty unhappy today. I've been dress shopping and bra shopping and I'm having all the same problems that I used to have... all the dresses that fit me are too small in the breast area, but the ones that fit my breasts are too large everywhere else. Plus, I got professionally sized, and I'm a 32F... which is exactly what I was pre-surgery. My old bras even still fit. My breasts are starting to sag again (which is normal, I know, but indicative of a problem). I really wanted to go so much smaller, down to a 32C, and I'm so disappointed. I see my surgeon tomorrow for my four month check-in, and I'm not sure what to say.
I don't feel any better about my body, in fact, I feel worse. I may just be in a bad place right now, but I feel like all I got out of this surgery were some nasty scars and a lighter bank account. Have any of you guys been through this? I really don't know what to do, I'm just sad. Advice is welcome. Pictures are attached.
