43 Years Young, 3 Children. Wanted This for over 20 Years So Why the Cold Feet? - Manchester, UK

Firstly I would like to thank all the members of this site who have shared their stories and how helpful and informative they have been.

For over 20 years I have been unhappy with how I look, my limitations to do certain activities, lack of choice choosing clothes etc etc. I was on the waiting list when I was 19 to have a breast reduction but ended up moving abroad so never had it done.
So, after 20 years, 3 children, breast feeding (and a little fluctuation in weight uh-humm!) it has taken it's toll on my boobs (and other parts of my body but we'll leave that for later).
I am currently a 32 JJ, well JJ on the right and probably J on the other but bra's tend to come with the same cup size don't they! :-L
So here I am 4 days pre-op and nervous as hell. Why?? I want this, don't I?

I know after the op so many things will change for the better and I know I am prepared for this, but what about how I will look? that is the big question. I don't want to go too small because I do feel that I will miss them or feel flat chested after having a big chest for so long. What if I don't like the finished result? I know I don't like the way I look now but this is me, this is naturally what I have become. Is this a normal feeling I am having or should I have more feelings of excitement?

I have discussed this with my ps and he is very sympathetic to my concerns. He will perform a bilateral breast reduction technique with some lipo (not looking forward to that bit).

I would greatly appreciate your views on this.

2 day pre op

Just thought I'd put some pics on. Still not sure what to do to :( need to be making my mind!

This is a private message I received from houstonRB1

'wow humongous awesome pictures. really shows the great size you are. what size are you?'
Not sure if this person has messaged anybody else but I was a little bit disappointed to say the least! As a result I have removed my pictures as I feel I have exposed myself. It took alot of courage to upload them. It's a shame some people have to spoil it for others!
