27 Years Old , Mother of Two, Breast Reduction Last Time Measured 32h/32j - Downey, CA

So I have been hearing " how big are your breast?...

So I have been hearing " how big are your breast? Does it hurt/it look like it hurt... I never seen someone with such a small frame and big boobs, You look like a mini Dolly Parton...name calling "Jugs" ..All your weight gain just go to your breast uh? I am tired of the looks, feeling uncomfortable ,pain!!!

It happend so fast!!!

I'm sort of driving my self crazy Ha! I have been researching on BR for about a year now and getting approved and picking surgery date all happen within a week! Seen the doctor June 25, 2014, without taking off any clothes or giving my story that I had worked so hard on lol. The doctor show's me pictures , ask me if I was having any more kids, told me how he does the surgery and told me to pick a date and call the office back. THAT WAS IT!.. After working it out with my job to be off work for up to 3months I had my date set Sep 4th 2014. With a little under two months I don't know what to do with my self. Everyday I go to the mirror old my breast up to try and imagine what I will look like with smaller boobies. Also I've been working on the stomach cause reading and watching videos of other women who have had BR say you now see it lol and its bigger than you thought!

Dream size!!!

So my dream size would be D/DD am I crazy? I'm just about 6 weeks away from my br and I'm excited!!! I still want breast, I still want cruves . Just don't want the pain, bruising,big heavy boobs.

Back & Forth

I am exactly 1MONTH from my BR surgrey!!! And I have all types of feelings going on. I've been working out like crazy and I have noticed that I have slimmed down. Even in my BREAST. THey don't seem as full but still BIG Idk. When I put on my bras there is a little room but when I take them off I just don't like what i see. Can you say confused..... Still sticking with my decision just got these crazy thoughts! TEAM BR 1 MONTH TO GO!!!!!!

Side view

Yea lookin @this photo keeps me on track.

PRE-OP TODAY

So today was my pre-op! This just makes me even more excited!! Got some blood drawn, asked lots of questions. Gave me all the paperwork for work ,instruction and stuff. Also doctor isn't giving me a surgical bra he says bring an old bra and they will take the wire out for the next day when he removes the drains. "I guess" Also I'm scheduled for the first BR that day 7:30am.:-) So two more weeks!!!! :-) :-)

1 WEEK!!!

Hello! I have one week Sep 4th!!! So can you ladies help with some things I will need or what might help with recovery any info is helpful. THANKS

All Marked Up & Ready To Go!!!!

Got my markings today. Was a lil uncomfortable because since they have grown so much I am usually the only one that handles them :/ and the doctor handle them like meat lol. With care but like he was about to go to work ha! BUT I'M EXCITED AND NERVOUS.!!! I go in tomorrow @ 7 am.

IT'S DONE AND WHAT AN EXPERIENCE!!!

First I would like to thank you ladies for you encouraging words it's means alot.:-) So I arrived at the hospital@7 am checked in around 745. Anesthesiologist came around 9 and asked if I wanted to get this fairly new numbing medicine that's goes straight to the nerves in my breast he said this would help with the pain up to 16 hrs after surgery so I said why not!!! So got that done made me a lil drowsy. Waited another 45 min another anesthesiologist came in asked if I was ready and if I was sure I wanted to do this. Next thing I remember was my hubby rubbing my hand asking if I wanted water it was done I blinked and that was it. My husband said they took me back around 11 Dr said I should be out @ 230 but didn't come out until 330. It took me 4 hrs to wake up good enough to go the restroom. It was so hard. But finally made it home around 8.

And

I've been taking my pain meds every 4 hours so I feel no pain. I pray this continues. And antibiotic every 6 hrs. I go get the drains removed today. So far I am happy with my decision.

THE FIRST LOOK

So here is before and after I can't believe it, I did it ,I did it lol.

Day 6

So I just had my stitches removed can you say ouch! And Ps like ok lay down and I'm moving so slow lol. Then he's like ok sit up let me see and juggles them! Yes I said juggle. I wanted to die. But he's says I'm all good. Don't have to wear the pads underneath. And for itching only to take a shower and put lotion on them. Also says I can start a mild workout 5 mins or so. But I'm still gonna give it another couple of days. I'm doing good pain level 1~2 and that's mostly from itching. Haven't took any meds since Sunday. Omg sleeping is so bad on this couch/recliner I just wanna lay on my STOMACH.... Other than that I'm ready to get dress and show off my girls :-)

Day 9

Hello All! It's been 9 days!!! Each day gets better really! These last couple of days I've been sore under my arms & breast nothing extreme but noticeable. It's been hot lately and guess what no under boob sweat :-)!!! I still find my self with my shoulders hunched over gotta get my posture right. But attached is my update photos my girls have dropped alot looking natural. I AM SO HAPPY WITH MY RESULTS!!!

Lil NERVOUS :/

Hi ladies so I have a lil scare here I don't know if I should call my PS or not. I don't wanna wait till it's worse or something and I don't wanna over react. So I think I have an opening like the stitch or something came out its really small but what if it opens ??? See picture

WEEK 2

Hello ladies it's 2am and I'm up with some pain I've been fighting it for a couple of days now but I gave in and took some meds, back on the codine. That's all I have.... I can't really take pills:/ so I have to make due. The pain is coming from all over, I would think this is how I should have felt week 1 but nope lol. It's really tender under my arms and these sharp pains in the nipple ain't no joke either. Lol!!!! And I just dropped the phone on my chest ok I'm done I think meds kickin in. Till next time BR friends.

Healing :-) :/

It feels sooo tight under my breasts every time I move from being in a certain position for so long I get sharp pains. My incision from the middle off chest half way under have started keloiding I seen this from the first day, it's like when he sewed me back up it was pulled too tight. This is painful as well. I hope this gets better soon.

Everything else is cool the little stitch that came out a couple of days ago a scab is appearing :-)

***I slept in my side last night first time in two weeks YES !!!!

I haven't put any lotion or anything on them yet scared even though PS said it was cool to use lotion.

**I have driven down the street to store that's about it...
So ready to go back to work though cause sitting in this house ????!!!!

I think a D/DD is perfect for your frame! I had mine reduced from an M to a large D/small DD myself! Your results are gorgeous, just amazing! I'm happy to say also that I started sleeping on my stomach at 3-4 weeks post surgery, and i use a pillow under my chest when i do. So hopefully you will be able to soon as well. you never realize how much you miss sleeping that way until you cant!!! Happy healing!

I think the "sharp pains" may be muscle spasms. My doctor gave me a prescription for muscle spasms.
  • Reply
Yes some of these pains are intense!

Doesn't look like an emergency to me - looks like you are splitting a stitch. Welcome to the (unfortunate) club! Call your PS's office tomorrow during business hours. They'll probably want you to come in so you can clip it. In the meantime, make sure to not lift anything heavy or stretch too far. You don't want it to become worse. I've been dealing with this since week 2 and it's not fun at all. For some reason, my body isn't a big fan of the stitches and it looks like neither is yours.

Edit- so that THEY can clip it, lol. Don't attempt it yourself!

Thank you I do love my results!!!! Yea the crazy thing is my PS never even looked@my breast till the day before surgery to do the markings. I kinda was worried like I hope he knows what he doin. But turned out her was great. No surgical bra,no tape just natural healing.!!!

Really??? Jeez, mine are taped up and bound 24 hours a day! Nice to know they won't actually drop off if I left them to themselves,! ; ) Ha ha! My PS is pretty easy going and despite the Mike Tyson like bruising I think she did an ok job so far......your scars already look perfect.....darn your youthful skin! ; ) Xxxxxx
