Starting to Feel a Little Scared... -London

I have wanted a breast reduction since I was 15. I am currently 34H (UK) and around 150 lbs. I have managed to lose weight over the last few months as I was 175 lbs in January. Initially I wanted to get to 145 lbs before the surgery but that's looking very unlikely :-(. I'm worried my stomach will be more noticeable once the girls are gone!

Full story

Hi guys. My first post was rushed so I'll give you more of a background.

I'm 26 years old and I have had large breasts since 13. I've always been unhappy with my shape as I have soooo much boob and no bottom :-(.
I'm due to have my surgery in a week and I cannot wait however I don't want to get too excited as I know the scars are a consideration as I'm having the traditional anchor scar. My surgeon prefers this method for me as I'll get a better shape.

I am so glad that I have found this site as the only other person I can talk to about it is my mum as most of my friends don't know I'm having the procedure. I don't want to be talked out of it.
Anyway I'll leave it at that for now

Speak soon lol

I made it!

Hi guys!!
I had my surgery yesterday and right now I'm laying in my hospital bed.
Let me give you a rundown of what happened....
I got to the hospital at 7am and got checked into my room. I had a chance to relax and my mother and I watched some TV. Mr Ng came to do his drawings at 8:20 than the anaesthetist came an hour or so later.
I got to choose my lunch and dinner after surgery and being a major foodie and having spent £2000 on one night I wanted my money's worth! Lol. Unfortunately that didn't happen :-(
When I was in the recovery room my right breast got swollen and it became apparent that I had a haemotoma. I had to go back to theatre to have it drained. I lost a lot of blood and I am to have 4.5 litres before I leave. I am currently having my third litre. I also have a catheter which is great as I'm normally too lazy to go toilet anyway lol.
When I FINALLY got back to my room I had half a tuna sandwich, a few bites of a salad and some rice pudding. So much for my feast of steak and chips! (Chips= fries for my Americans)

I haven't seen my breasts but I feel soooo light. My surgeon really takes his time with stitching so I anticipate decent scars.

Will check in with you guys again when I get home xxx

Oh yeah I forgot to say

I hit a weight loss plateau three weeks ago and stopped weighing myself. However when I was admitted the nurse weighed me in and I was only 3lb off my target weight. Yay me :-)

Sad about my boxy breasts

I'm only 2.5 weeks post surgery but my breasts look really boxy. I'm only 26 so to have misshapen breasts at a young age is devastating. I wish I done more research and gone for a surgeon who uses the vertical technique. I'm sitting here in tears...they are such a weird shape

I was just having a bad moment

I think it was due to PMS that I had a wobbly moment earlier. They really are not bad and I look slimmer which is what I wanted. It's still early days so hopefully they will take on a more natural shape :-)

2.5 weeks post op :-)

Hey guys

Thanks sooo much guys for your kind comments the other day I was down. You really helped :-).
Just to let you know healing is still going well and I'm yet to get any zingers lol.
I went back to work on Thursday and I work long hours at 8:30 to 6:30 on my feet. I then had a company conference to attend this whole weekend so I am knackered! On Saturday at the conference there was a party until 3am but I was in bed by 11!

Also just wanted to sat my breasts were not as boxy as I first thought and my left breast had totally changed shape and become a more natural round shape already! Lefty is still a little boxy but I'm confident it will take on a better shape as time goes on. I'm so glad I done the surgery and Mr Ng is an artist!!!! :-)

You look amazing!!! It doesn't look boxy. And if you think so, in time it is going to drop and shape normally. :-)

Hey it's nice to see another UK girl on here!! Your breasts look amazing and not boxy at all! They seem to be a really great natural shape. How are you finding the pain? the scars look great too :)

Hi my fellow Brit! I think I was just having a low moment today. It's the first time I have felt like that since the surgery which was bound to happen. Still glad I done the surgery because everyone says I look slimmer and I can wear things I could NEVER consider before lol. The pain wasn't bad, I stopped my pain relief after 2 days...the itchiness has been the real problem. When are you scheduled?

Yeah I imagine there are loads of emotional highs and lows after surgery, it's such a big change. You do look really good, and that's great about the pain! I in the process of arranging my date but I'm hoping for 17th Feb! It seems far away but at the same time, time seems to be flying!

Thanks doll. I was being silly earlier. I hope your surgery goes well. When are you due to have it?

Sorry to hear you are feeling a bit low. Give it time, but most of all, compare with your pre-op photos. You really needed this surgery. I'm sure if you put up some post op pictures everyone will think you look great. I think we all look at other pics of the perfect breasts and wish for that, but when I look at some of the pre-op pictures, and people with really huge, saggy, misshapen or unequal breasts, I feel lucky in even my pre-op state. You've done brilliantly with your weight, just start thinking about all the lovely things you'll be able to wear next summer. Chin up,

Happy healing London gal. You are on the road to pure happiness. I would like to do a little jig. I am so happy but the jig would hurt right now. :-) I am 16 days post op. I bought 3 blouses from Anne taylor yesteday -- size medium. Can't tell you how euphoric that felt.

Woohoo!!! There is no better feeling than buying a smaller size in clothes!

OH yay. about the weightloss. I am sorry that must have been scary. Its good you are at the hospital so they can help you. I haven't gotten on the scale yet. I love weight loss - : ) my plastic surgeon keeps telling me this is not a weight loss surgery. LOL
  • Reply
Haha I think I've looked at this as weight loss surgery too

That sounds scary - glad to hear you are okay now - that is a lot of blood to loose. take it easy and update us when you can. Glad you feel light!
