I am 33 5'3 190lb's with two kids.....I wear a 38DD and have just wanted to be able to wear cute bras because for some reason women with bigger breast seem to only fall under the you can only wear black white and nude or beige colored bra's..... I am also getting the reduction because of back and shoulder problems not to mention the fact that wearing a regular bra and two sports bra's while working out is getting quite ridiculous......The only con I can see is the scaring that is going to be left behind after the surgery.....I would say the pros speak for themselves no more straps digging in my shoulders back free of pain and I don't have to pay for the surgery.....I wont be having my reduction done until October but that gives me more than enough time to lose weight.

I had my consult today for my breast reduction I think my doctor thought I was in for breast implants because I hide the size of my breast's so well with hoodies and such.....When I went into the exam room he was shocked and told me that I was a go for a reduction I am going from a 38DD to a 38C.....I won't have my surgery until September so that I can lose at least 20lb's before I go in for the surgery.....

Surgery was pushed back to October

I just received the best news ever my insurance approved my surgery....I am set to be reduced Oct 15.....I am a little scared and a little excited but that just makes me losing the weight worth it.....

In two months time I will have a life changing surgery that is going to improve my self confidence and alleviate a lot of the problems I am having....I am scared and excited at the same time I don't know what to expect and I don't know what the outcome is going to be or what my new breast are going to look like....will I be happy with my new self will I feel better after my surgery I don't know the answers to those questions but I know I will have them soon.....

In three weeks I have my pre-op appointment are there any questions I should ask my Doctor and where did you guys order your compression bra's from I have several websites I have been looking at I just want to be able to be somewhat comfortable after the surgery also how long was your stay in the hospital two- three days or were you released the same day. I am looking forward to this I am so ready to feel a little lighter up top

Well next Wednesday is my pre-op appointment and I...

Well next Wednesday is my pre-op appointment and I am so not ready for it I know I should be because this is a life changing operation and I can't go back once it's done but I am not mentally ready at least I don't think I am. The only other problem I am having is losing the weight and it's much easier said than done I don't know where I am going wrong but I work my butt off and then when I go to weigh in I am forced to look at the disappointing numbers on the scale I am at a loss as to what to do I am just so frustrated and then on top of that I don't know how much weight I should be trying to lose I just don't know anymore I just feel like going in next week and saying I don't want this anymore....So Lost Right Now...

Well in nine day's I have my surgery I am still...

Well in nine day's I have my surgery I am still nervous just not as much I will at least be staying in the hospital for at least two day's. The only problem I am having is that my doctor doesn't think I am going to need pain medicine he says that most people just take motrin for the pain. I just have to say that I do not have a high tolerance for pain and after being cut open I am sure that motrin is not going to help relieve my pain..

In 48 hours I have my surgery I am still nervous...

In 48 hours I have my surgery I am still nervous and excited at the same time I have my compression bra and I am ready to go I will be in hospital at least for two days I am praying everything goes well I have a great support team with my husband and my friends backing me wish me luck all....

I am now one week post op and I feel great I don't...

I am now one week post op and I feel great I don't have a lot of pain and I am guessing the swelling will eventually go down. I am really happy with the results I can now actually enjoy shopping for tops and know that they will not be horribly stretched out I can also enjoy buying all those cute bra's I want and not get stuck wearing three color choices. I don't feel so top heavy anymore and my shoulders are starting to feel better I know it will take time to see what they look like but I know they sit up and are perky once again that is a big plus. I stayed for three days in the hospital so that all the extra fluid could drain off and I don't have any stitches to be removed. I know that now that they are a reasonable size I can workout without having to have on two sports bra's and will be able to run comfortably again. If I had the choice to do it all over again I would.
