I could never find good bras until recently, now I'm 25 no children and don't plan on any time soon lol I have went back and forth with my decision but I'm ready to be confident about my body.June 6 is the date!xcited

My mother had these exact boobies lol. She passed away when I was 12. It's the only part of my body besides my face that I will change permanently. I hope she understands that I want to be different and get these girls lifted and reduced. I believe she will though.. Love u mommy

My nipples are huge ladies I know I know lol

I too had very large breast at 12, and I hated them I always wore black. I finally did the surgery at 54 and its the best move I've ever made I should of done it at 25. I went from Triple D and possible E cup to a C. Loving it. Good luck!

The clock is ticking

Hello everyone! I was scheduled for June 6,2013 but I now had to reschedule for June 20,2013 because my surgeon will be out of town! Can you say boost in anxiety! I'm ready to get it over with but it gives me more time to prepare mentally and so forth..
I am 27, have no children and I don't know if I am going to have children or not, but i knew I wanted a breast reduction NOW and I couldn't wait any longer. Good luck!

The clock is ticking! I'm just short of two weeks until surgery. I was wondering if anyone was ever on you monthly period while having a breast reduction? If so did that affect anything?

One week a way

My date is 6-20-2013. The closer I get the more nervous I seem. I'm starting to question is this the right decision but I'm going to follow my heart and mind and go through with it.
Your heart us always right. You will see when its done. Its amazing! Good luck hun.

Today is the day

My surgery is scheduled for 7:30 AM it's 6-20-2013!! All the waiting and wondering will soon be yet another memory. Earlier I met with the nurse, anasthesia doc, and had my blood drawn. It went well. The plastic surgeon is very busy since the town I live in is so small and everyone wants him to be his doctor. I'm very excited about seeing my PS in a few hours to ask him more questions and to finally begin this journey with smaller beautiful perky boobies! My boyfriend is taking me along with family members because I will need all the support I can get! See you all on the other side!!
Good luck hun. You will do fine. We are there also in spirit. See ya on the other side!

Day 1 post op

Hello everyone. Surgery went well. I almost backed out early this morning because the first nurse was very rude and mean acting to me. My boyfriend was there to comfort me but as soon as my grandmother arrived I was a ball of tears. Everyone else was great. My breast are very sore. I have a check up in the morning at 10 that I am excited about going to. I'm in pain but I'm about to take some more medicine its been 10hours since my last dose along with eat some grits eggs and sausage before bed. The surgery seems worth it so far but I will see eventually
Glad it went well...please take your meds..dont get behind for the first few days..the pain can be bad, so take your meds, and rest, and drink your water...hang in there girlie..you are gonna look so awesome!! Your momma is watching over you...aloha

Don't ever let someone else's bad attitude turn you away from something that's going to benefit you. The lord had this in motion for you and you followed through. Im glad that you made it out ok (I had faith). Now the healing begins. You are going to love it. Lots of water believe me and protein helps a lot. Congrats and happy healing. By the way your dinner sounds great;)

Day 2 post op

Hello everyone I went to my PS and they let me put on a sports bra. My boobies look great. My chest in the center is very swollen. My left breast is more sore than the right. Walking around is quite painful but I'm managing to get through. I do believe this breast reduction was worth it. In due time hopefully the pain will ease up. I will post more pictures soon.
Yes ma'am I have been taking pain meds and antibiotics along with drinking water alot. My left breast is more swollen than my right for some odd reason. Thankyou for your concern :-)
Reply
Yeah my left was always more swollen than the right..i was thinking that tonight as i showered..so thankful that i can massage them now and they dont hurt much anymore..whew!!

You are absolutely right.I pushed through the mean nurse and ended up with a very nice nurse who coincidently had the same name as my mother! I thought that was weird bc my mom passed in 1999. I've never met anyone with her exact name before yesturday

4 days post op

Hello all I got my reduction on Thursday and now it's Monday. I'm 4 days post op and feeling alot better. I haven't taken any pain meds all day. After the surgery I was hit with excruciating migraines like never before. I ended up going to the ER because I did not know what was going on. The said I was dehydrated and gave me migraine meds. I'm feeling a lot better. I am very pleased with my results from my BR. My left breast is still more swollen than my right but other than that ok satisfied. Anything beats the breast I had before lol
Wow! I hope you're feeling better! How's the healing going? You look great in the pics!

Looking fabulous! Funny thing: i got a migraine and ended up at the ER around that time in my healing as well! I ended up vomiting for two days because of the pain and couldn't breathe. I hope you feel better its scary when you feel that bad. I hope your enjoying the new you and look forward to more of your review! X

3 weeks post op

Hello everyone! I am three weeks post op BR and I feel better each day! My stitches/ sutures were removed two days ago. I can take off the surgical strips in five more days. I haven't had any complications except headaches for a week straight after the surgery. As for pain I have not taken any prescribed pain mess since the first week after surgery. I wear a sports bra each day all day. Unless my shirt has a built in support bra. I am very glad that I had this procedure. So far it is very well worth it.
Hey! Great results!! who was your surgeon?
