Want to Wear a White T Shirt - Melbourne, AU

I am in my early 40s now and always said that when...

I am in my early 40s now and always said that when I finished having children I will have a breast reduction. My youngest is now 10 years old.

I am booked in for the 1st of February 2013.
My goal is to wear a white t shirt and I don't even want it to be tight.

I am currently a 34e but want after surgery to be a size a or b - I don't need those boobs any more -
I live in Australia and have to pay for it privately I have no insurance - I am looking at it as an investment
After reading many posts - it is my understanding that doing sport gets easier as I no longer have to wear 2 bras and 2 singlet tops
I feel excited ,anxious and a little scared of the unknown
Let me know your thoughts - I also feel guilty because its a lot of $
As far as husbands go - my husband says the boobs are perfect as they are- but for the last 20 years I have always cried about them to him - he actually wants me to have the surgery so 'I shut up about them being to big'
Look forward to hearing your thoughts

Hi there, just wanted to know how you've recovered? I hope you are happy about doing the procedure regardless of the blood clots - close call I know I've had both leg DVT and lung embolisms - have you been tested for any causes of the clotting or has it been determined it was directly resulting from surgery?

Hi everyone - I wanted to fill you in - I am 4 weeks post operation. It has not been fun- I developed blood clots in my lungs after 2 weeks post surgery. I was hospitalized for four days. My understanding is that I am the 10% risk that can happen to anyone . I did not expect the clots to occur. I am now taking warfrin and having lots of blood tests- I hate injections. Anyway I have noticed my breasts are smaller - but have been thru so much In regard to regrets - not sure yet ? Please let me know if anyone had the same condition?

I had the say dream, white t-shirt. I had my surgery last week and I am completely new. My doctor was able to go from a D to a B. I cried the second day because I thought they were very small (and they were swealled). Best decision I made in my life. Good idea to get a recliner, I couldn't sleep in bed and the recliner was more comfortable.

Hi happiest person ever - I am going to spend 3 days in hospital - so if there are issues may end up in a recliner. I just met with the plastic surgeon and also said I want to be a b - he said he's not sure about that as always later he can take out more - if we go too small then it might not be in proportion to your body . My theory is smaller is better - less than a week to go - cant wait - hope this week goes fast - I want this done already

Congrats for doing this for you , I live in cairns ( Australia ) I to had to pay for everything and felt huge gilt for spending $13,000 on me . When the kitchen and bathroom are in serious need of some love . It's been 6 months since my op and I'm so glad I decided to spend the money on me . My hubby says he loved my old boobs but I know he lives my new ones as much as I do lol . 2 weeks after my op I when shopping with my sister , I got things I would never have tried on before and had a fantastic day . ( I was shattered after but it was great ) I rang my hubby at work to thank him so much for letting me do this that I was so happy . I don't think he relises how greatful I am coz as you say it's a lot of money . I wish you the best of luck with it all , please check out my profile . And keep us posted

Hi I have seen you around the forum - that dog is quiet distinctive. I am just so looking forward to shopping too, especially a white t shirt - I think I'm obsessed with it because I have never been able to wear one. Also just to close a shirt with buttons without popping out of one. Good husbands always think we are perfect but we know what we have to do -Get the girls reduced

Do you know what size you want to be after the surgery - I want small actually super small I am getting myself psychologically ready - just relaxing - I'm so ready to go in tomorrow morning even Yeah kids are smart they pick up things Are you going in for day surgery or staying overnight? I'm actually going in for a few days overnight because I'm also going to do my stomach as well Can't wait to wear a white t shirt - never thought how simple it was until you just stick out all over the place Hope you fell better before your procedure

I have not got a recliner - I really prefer the bed. That's what I'm really scared of not being able to go smalllllllll- what I've read and understood is that they can't go drastically small - just 2 sizes down I breast fed my kids and I think that is what also caused them to sag Are you located in the USA ? I'm in Australia - look how us women all have the same issues. I work from home- but at times need to do inspections
