Didn't Realize How Big My Boobs Really Are!? - Massachusetts

Hello. I just want to say how helpful and...

Hello. I just want to say how helpful and informative this website has been for me!

I am a 33 year old mother of two (3 year old boy and 5 year old girl). I have had large breasts since high school. I was very petite and flat chested until the end of my freshman year when I developed 34DD breasts over night. My breasts have always been uncomfortable for me. I am a very active person and have always been. My breasts always got in the way. I am not a showy person and do not like overflowing cleavage.

To make a long story short. After having both of my children I went to a PS and she told me to lose 10 lbs. and come back in 6 months. I didn't realize I had to be finished with breastfeeding for one year before a reduction. Well, life passed by busy with two small children, etc., and it took me a year and a half to get back to the PS.

During the past year or so, I have become much more active with running, etc., my breasts are causing back/neck pain, they just do NOT fit with my body.

I went to my PS last Monday for a consult. She said that I am the perfect candidate for BR, as I am through having children and in good health. I am 33, 5'2, 135 lbs.

After losing weight, I thought my breasts would shrink, and they have somewhat. After taking pictures this morning, I realized just how large and disproportionate they are!!!!!

Good afternoon ladies! Surgery is in one week...

Good afternoon ladies!
Surgery is in one week from today, I am extremely excited and nervous!!! I feel like I am nesting (like I did before having my babies)! I have been shopping and cleaning like a crazy person. Any suggestions on what to wear home from the hospital?

Post Op Day 3 - feeling pretty good! So happy I did this. I think I am about a 36B. Can't believe how small and high my boobs are. Sleeping okay. Taking shower tomorrow. Had drains removed on Thursday, that hurt, one was stuck, ouch! Overall, experience has been what I expected!

Hi Ladies,
I just wanted to check-in and say I hope all you post-ops are healing well and all you pre-ops are finding all the information they need on this site :)
As for me, I'm 4 days post-op, feeling pretty good! I am still sore and swollen, but not much pain. I left the house for a couple hours this morning and felt shooting pains in my breasts and came home, took a pain pill, and have been in bed since. I have been taking 1 pain pill a day, the rest Tylenol. I feel like I kind of have the blues today, but I'll get over it! I do love my new breasts!!! I want to shower today, but I'm nervous, we shall see... I'll keep you posted!
Question for you, if you get a chance to look at my pics, can u tell me roughly what size you think my new boobies are. I know they are hight and swollen, but I can't really tell what size I'm at now and will be after healing. I was a 34DD / 36D before! Thanks ladies for all your helpful info and support!!!!!

Hi everyone, I haven't checked in in a bit. I wasn't feeling well, nauseous and couldn't sleep. Today I am one week post op, feeling pretty good - went put for a bit yesterday and even slept on my side! It's 90 degrees here in MA and I want to go to the beach, but I'm nervous with my incisions. I wasn't going to wear a swimsuit, I'm still in my surgical vest. I haven't drove, thinking I might today, any advice on that? I see my PS tomorrow, I think I'm healing well. I have only taken one shower since surgery, the rest just sponge baths. Going to take another shower today. I will post some new pics this afternoon and you can let me know what you think! Thanks ladies :)
Happy Healing!!!!!

Hi ladies. I just wrote a pretty impressive update ;) BUT, it didn't save for some reason.

Anyway, I haven't checked in for a while and I wanted to say hello and that I hope everyone is healing well and happy with their new boobies!!!

I was two week post-op yesterday. Feeling good, a bit sore and swollen still, but nothing like I expected after reading some of the stories on here. I returned to work on Monday, I work in an office, nothing strenuous. It is nice easing back into normal life. I drove one week post-op. I am going to post pics from 1 to 2 weeks post-op and you can let me know what you think and if you have any questions, let me know!

Also, I know I am probably not the size I am going to be, but I am about a 36B from a 36D/34DD. I could not be HAPPIER!!!
