Like most, I have had large breasts since I was young. Have gone through life with men holding conversations with my chest.Lol They are heavy and awkward and I have never felt that they were sexy, but more of a pain. I turned 50 and I figured its about time to do something about it. It will be sooo nice to wear a bathing suit that is actually flattering and slinky summer tops that don't require a huge bra. I am really excited and nervous, but mostly excited

Boy, it's really shows how large you are when you see them on film. I know they are not as large as some, but still bothersome. I am sooo glad I am getting this done :)

Went for my preop, blood work and ECG this week, so I am good to go. I am not usually nervous about surgery, but for some reason it's doing my head in lol. What if I am too small or not small enough. I know it will be fine, but its stressing me out. I am a very positive person so maybe I am pms'ing lol. 2.5 weeks to go. Yippee :)

9 days to go!!!Now I just want it over with. It seems like its taking forever. I went to pay my PS last week and they asked me if I have had a weight changes of more than 10 lbs. I have lost 20 lbs, so now I have to have another appt before surgery. I have picked up pj's, front button as required, some best form sport bras, cocoa butter and some non-stick gauze pads. I am ready to go except for a couple of things. I was shopping today and was checking out the bra section, and I just kept smiling. SOON!!! Lol lol. Can't wait to wear a normal sports bra and more importantly, a pretty bra :)))))

Saw my PS today. All set. Just need to show up and get smaller boobs :) I asked him how much he thought he would take and he said probably half the weight. I hope they remove enough. That's one thing I am anxious about, is that I am still big, but I am sure it will be fine. No more neck and back pain :)

Getting my you know what in order. Grocery shopping tmo and then I am set to go on Tuesday. I am going into this very excited and only a little anxious. I really can't wait. Got my work stuff all settled, so time off will be worry free and I only have to concentrate on healing. My friends are so awesome. They are making my favorite dishes to bring over. I am feeling truly blessed by all this. Being able to have this surgery, family, friends and of course all the info I have learned on here. Lets get this done! Lol

I made it!!! I am on the other side. I am doing really well. I am on he'd rest until tomorrow. Have some good drugs. Everybody was so good to me. I will post pics when my caregiver/friend lets me out of bed. She's very strict lol. My friend is spoiling me rotten. My pain level right now is about a 1. So happy :)

Oops bed lol

Doing really well. Hardly any pain at all. Just had a shower and am air drying my new babies. I love them. You can see there's lots of bruising from the lipo, but its actually better than yesterday already. The Dr gave ocy's but I am having a hard time sleeping, so will ask if I can switch to something else . All in all I feel really good. My friend is spoiling me rotten. So happy this is finally over and done. Woohoo!!!!!

8 days Post Op

I had my first post op visit yesterday. I had the staples removed. Very happy about that. I stopped all meds after day 2. Didn't need them anymore and they made sleeping difficult. My PS said to shower everyday. I have to take a wash cloth and clean the area really well and only wear surgical bra. The area has been itchy, but not as bad as I was expecting. At first, I was freaked out. My breasts looked foreign to me and washing them gave me the heebie jeebies lol. Now I am in love. The nurse yesterday said I was healing well and once I am healed and the scabs are gone, I can start with the Mepiform scar treatment sheets. They are not cheap, but asked my pharmacist if they could get them and very happy to report they can and for less than one third of the cost from my PS office. I can drive now, so I have been everywhere lol. Went grocery shopping last night and that went well. I have been lucky with my healing so far. No setbacks. Still trying not to overdo it tho. I don't want any splits. Will post more in a few days. :)

Swollen!!!!

Holy crap. Lol. Think I have been doing tooooo much. I am really swollen. Got some arnica gel. Any other suggestions? Please :)
