Hello Ladies!!! I am so glad my guy found this...

Hello Ladies!!! I am so glad my guy found this site and shared it with me. I started researching breast reduction surgery about 6 years ago but just met with a fantastic PS last week. We are currently waiting for the approval letter from the insurance company, and then a date will be set. I am currently a 36H and suffer from severe back, neck and shoulder pain. I have also lost nearly 70 lbs and did not lose one ounce of breast tissue. With that being said, reduction it is. My surgeon does inpatient, so day one and part of day 2 will be at the hospital. My surgeon and I have discussed reducing my breast size to a full D or DD. I am so excited and nervous to begin this journey!!!

I am 10 days post op. today is the first day that I truly feel fantastic!!! This is including the battle of the constipation!! Whoa! That was rough. Thank God for Miralax! Anyways, I am adding some new pics. I have now taken any special vitamins for bruising or healing. Just went all natural. I feel I am healing great!!! Take a look and let me know your thoughts.

Tomorrow is 2 weeks post op and I get to go back...

Tomorrow is 2 weeks post op and I get to go back to work. I am excited and sad all at the same time. I will be exhausted by the end of work so I am posting 2 week pics tonight. I think I am healing nicely. I can't wait to get this itchy tape off on Friday. Not sure what the next step is after the tape, so we will see!!! I also did some close ups of the under incisions so you could see where the one incision is draining a little. It's almost done now!

3 weeks and 2 days post op. I had my best day so...

3 weeks and 2 days post op. I had my best day so far today. I see the surgeon tomorrow to follow up on my infection. I still have a little bit of clear drainage, but very very little. I am still pretty bruised and I still swell pretty good on my right side by the end of the day. I have added new pictures for you to see. Overall I think I am looking pretty good! Minus the infected area of course!!!

9 1/2 week post op appointment!!!

I had my last post op appointment today and my surgeon is even blown away with my healing!!! My scars look like 6 month scars and are healing beautiful!!! I am on cloud nine right now. He gave me comparison pics so if I ever doubt for a minute why I did this (I never will!!!) I have it!!! I have taken a picture of the pictures for you to look at. What a difference. My life will forever be *lifted*! :) Enjoy!! Best decision of my LIFE!!!

20 Weeks Post Op!!!

I figured I should put up some new pics!!! Things are going AMAZING!!! :)

I can't believe it's been over 6 months!!!

Life is great!!! Loving my boobs and there is NO TURNING BACK to the old ones, ever. My scarring continues to fade. I did spit another stitch just a week ago, so who knows when that will stop!! I took some new pictures for everyone. Sorry about the bra lines. I was not going to wait for them to fade, it is getting late. I really have very light scarring. The vertical scars are only noticeable if you are looking for them!!! :) So happy!!!
