I'm 40 years old, single and no kids. I have been wanting to have a breast reduction done for years but I was advised to wait until I have kids, but that never happened! So, I finally got tired of waiting and enduring the back and neck pains, looking disproportioned, tired of clothes not fitting properly!! So I finally had it done on jan 30th, 2014, and thank God. I was about at 40DDD and 36F/G ( measured in 2 other bras. I'm hoping to be a 36 C once all swelling has subsided.

POD 15

Not sagging any more!

Before suggest pics 36F/G

Every week I have noticed they are softer. The only firm part now is just the bottom of the breasts.

Thank you! I was a 34 F/ G in some bras and other a 38DD which I'm sure I was wearing the wrong size, LOL! So I'm not really sure what size I was. When I go back for my follow up appointment I will ask my PS what size did the measure me pre Op. Post op he said I would be a D cup.

You do look like me. I am 6 weeks post op and the swelling did go down some. Yesterday I was swollen again due to traveling all day. I can still feel it today and see it. Wonder what does her them so upset about car rides and flight that they swelling again. Your swelling will go down quite a bit more. Mine did the biggest jump between 5-6 weeks if it comes to swelling. I will just to hang in there some more. Good luck

Nothing short of amazing and you can tell from the front that you are still really swollen. Things will settle down a lot in the next two months.
