Well I just turned 40 and I have been thinking about a breast reduction for a while. I'm 5'4" 155-160(ish) 2 kids 2 divorces. Can blame the pregnancies for the stretch marks but the weight gain is alllll me. After my second child(I was 32) I went back down to 135-140 no prob but around 36 the weight gain just didn't come off as easy as it used to.Tried dieting -AGAIN- and just can't do it-- I HATE dieting. I've been working out(strenth training/cardio) 3 days a week with a professional jui jitsu instructor so I am toned and in the best physical shape I've been I since my 20's ! Decided to go for tummy tuck and lipo along with the breast reduction because I want my body to be in proportion, not have small boobs and bigger belly ! I am very nervous and excited at the same time. I have been stalking REALSELF for a few months and have learned soooo much.I will do my best to share my experience with you brave gals : )

Can't wait to look the way I feel :)

Preop February 25 - Dr told me to stop all vitamins,drinking,sunning,medications for 2 weeks befor surgery. Going on a cruise February 17-24 so needed some time to prepare.

So nervous ! And excited :D

just added another procedure-the ultrasound of my boobs found Papillomas-they need to be remove as a precaution but can be done same time as TT,MR,hernia repair & breast reduction

Had a few days of the "why am i doing this" but now I'm back to excited.

2 weeks 4 days post op. First week was hell. Pain, discomfort , misery. I had no idea it would have been that bad BUT now I'm feeling much better ( about 55%). You def need help for at least 2 weeks you can't do much. I regret not getting electric lift recliner. I had Toilet seat riser and a walker only used for a week and a half but def need a seat in the shower it wears u out and u need to rest. Compression garment helps w swelling but takes some getting used to. I'm also down 13 lbs :)
If anyone has questions please contact me. PS I'm a strong, in shape 40 yr old I wanted more kids at 36-38 but it didn't work out so I can't imagine doing this before 40.
I will post pics soon.
