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.
