The Start of a New Life Journey - Fairfax, VA

Hello! First and foremost I want to thank all of...

Hello! First and foremost I want to thank all of you brave courageous women for sharing your experiences. You have encouraged me to share mine and be a blessing to someone else like you are to me. I'm 26 y/o and have had boobs since 1st grade. I've always wished for smaller boobs and 2012 just happens to be the year that I get to move forward into a new season in my life. I don't know my current size for sure, but I'm going to get measured and find out. I would like to be a C/D. I'm nervous because I haven't had any surgeries before in my life except dental. I truly desire to get into shape physically but these breast have always been a hindrance. Not only physically but mentally as well. My surgery is a few weeks away and I'm excited and truly blessed to have an amazing support system of family and friends. As I walk this journey, I will share details along the way. Please give me some tips to help me along this journey. I'm happy to hear anything you want to tell me. Thanks for being here. Much love and hugs

Hey Ladies! 2 weeks and 4 days left before my life...

Hey Ladies! 2 weeks and 4 days left before my life changing experience takes place :-) I'm so excited about what's ahead of me and I'm ready to be FREE! I love sleeping on my stomach, so that's the main thing that concerns me. I'm praying that my doctor does the liposuction under my armpits to prevent those pouches, but I'm also thinking that I should be embracing some work outs to help me with that. Any suggestions? I'm hoping for nice light weight boobs that will be beautiful once they are healed and revealed...to myself that is since I'm single LoL! And proud :-) So much running through my mind and hoping that I can get everything done before the surgery. Does anyone have a helpful checklist that they used? LoL! I so appreciate you all. I'm thrilled about this whole process :-)

13 days to go. I feel so overwhelmed like there is...

13 days to go. I feel so overwhelmed like there is so much to do. I'm praying for peace and trying to rest as much as possible. Does anyone else experience that rush as well? I found out that my insurance doesn't require a precertification but I know I still need to go get my clearance for surgery from the primary care doctor. Did anyone go see a chiropractor to have their back x-rayed before their procedure to check to the before and after of things? Just curious :-)

Ok so I just finally found out my size by...

Ok so I just finally found out my size by measuring...I would have never known that I was a whopping 46H. Wow! I've been wearing triple D for a long time....whew! Well I'm glad to finally know. Hopefully I'll get my nice small C/D :-)

Whewwww ok...where do I start? LoL! I'm officially...

Whewwww ok...where do I start? LoL! I'm officially on the OTHER SIDE! Wooohoooo! November 8th @ 10:30am was my big day. I've been so tired these past few days that I have not felt like posting a thing LoL! I did miss you wonderful ladies and thought about you daily. I've finally seen my boobs and they're going to have to take some getting used to. I had 6pds removed. Three pds from each breast. I still have my drains in and will have them removed tomorrow. I have the greatest PS ever! She's so sweet, talented and professional. I had a great experience with her. It's been. Week for me, so ill post more pictures and update you as I go along :-) Much love

So I'm 11 days post op and the incisions made...

So I'm 11 days post op and the incisions made under the breast to the sides are driving me bonkers lol. I accidentally caught myself sleeping on my tummy 2 times. No damage but surely uncomfortable lol. What's up with the tightness that comes after a meal? Is anyone else experiencing that or just me? My body is completely different now too. I love it. I don't feel horribly proportioned or imbalanced anymore. I'm excited to begin working out once the healing/swelling subsides. I thought I would share some post op photos too. Thanks to everyone for support. Especially Ms. Sassycharly (?), you've been so encouraging to every gal on this site and its a blessing to know you. **Hugs*** Just thought you really deserve a shout out :-) Much love everyone and happpppppy healing :-)
