Hello Everyone...I guess I can start again by...
- 15 May 2012
Hello Everyone...I guess I can start again by saying that I am happily married and a mother of two boys, ages 5&7. I originally started in the tummy tuck community because originally a tummy tuck was what I planned on doing first but I later decided that it would be best to start from the top half of my body and work my way down since it was simply not in my budget to do both procedures all at once. I have always had fairly large breasts since high school. I was around a size 36C when I was in the 10th grade but by the time I graduated high school, I had grown to a 36DD. Unfortunately, when I reached my mid 20's I gained quite a bit of weight and was tipping the scales at 218lbs and went up to a bra size of a 38DDD. Shortly after, I lost weight and got down to 153lbs however, my bra size didn't really change much b/c my breast were still there but the fat tissue was gone. It was nothing but skin left and they were so saggy. They almost looked like someone had let the air out of them and I was walking around with two socks full of nickels attached to my chest....In addition to this I got pregnant with my two sons and they were even worse than they were before. So, I decided after years of frustration of layering my clothing, and trying to find a bra or swimsuit I can wear, dealing with neck and shoulder strain, and bruising and shoulder strap groves in the shoulders I finally decided to go forward and have a breast lift/reduction. After much research and several consultations, I finally found Dr. Rebecca Glasser and made my decision to go with her. My surgery date was May 8, 2012 and I am now 1 week post op. I am not sure what cup size I am now, and according to my PS I won't know for quite some time due to the swelling. I did however discuss with my PS that I did not want to be larger than a c cup, so I guess we shall see. In the meantime, so far so good. Even with all of the swelling still, plenty of soreness and pain, I am so pleased with my results thus far and I can't wait to see my final result.
