Well I had a TT 8mths ago and will still expermenting with back pain,rash,and indents so I started goin to my Dr and she referred my to a,surgeon. Im 5'5 150 lbs and my breast are 34 DDD. I met the surgeon and he said I was a perfect candiate and he would sumit it in to my insurance.

Im scared but I keep thinking I might finally get to buy a normal bathing suit lol!! Do have big boobs for so long it kind of scare me. The fear of being to small but hopefully I get perky Cs. It took 2 weeks and the insurance approved it my surgery scheduled for March 2 so just around the corner.

Welcome! Good luck with your surgery! If you had a tummy tuck, I think you will find that your recovery with your breast reduction will be so much easier. Can't wait to hear about your journey!

I was wondering who do u have for insurance and did your Plastic surgeon weigh u at the consultation or did they go based off of what u tell them your weight is? Just wondering because I plan to loose weight and prefer if the amount of grams removed is based on what I will weigh prior to surgery.

Well as the days start to get closer I have turned upcest with looking at womens breast lol!! I'm so scared to wake up from surgery and be apart of the tiny titty squad lol! I mean I know I want to be reducted but I know I don't want to be a B cup and reading these reviews I get scared. I currently wear Fredrick F bras and when the Dr says he's going to take a pound from each one where does this really put me? I hope I can calm down and reax because in my heart I really feel this is going to help me in the long run. Please don't make me be writing a year from noww that I'm getting imlants lol!! Breath breath lol!!

I had a pound removed from each breast and that took me from an H to a full DD.  I'm actually going in to have lipo next month to try to get me down to at least a D cup.

Anxieties are normal, especially as you get closer to your date.  On the day of surgery I was worried that I was making a huge mistake, but I'm so thankful I charged right ahead!  I'm hopeful and confident that you will be too!

Well I have 8 days until surgery I'm still very scared on the out come. He said he will remove a pound from each so I'm nervouse on what size I'm looking at I would love to be full C. I bought a recliner yesterday s that I can sleep comfortable but I'm really lost on what else I need to be ready can anyone give me any ideas?

The recliner will be the big thing.  It really should help you sleep so much more comfortably and keep you in a good position.  From my experience you will need food that you can keep within reach.  And soft food will be easier to digest for you, so things like yogurt, cottage cheese, jello, fruits.  Make sure you drink plenty of water.  I know many doctors suggest using straws as that will encourage you to drink more.  I found button front pajamas to be the most comfortable clothes.  I wore them continuously, even to my doctor's appointment for the first week, because they were so easy to get on and off.  Extra-Strength Tylenol, as you will probably not need the Rx pain medication long and you can not take Ibuprofen because it increases bleeding.  You may want to pick up some stool softeners like Docusate Sodium or MiraLax or some prune juice if you can drink that.  The anesthesia slows down all of your systems including digestive and when you add the pain medication on top of that, going to the bathroom can sometimes be a source of real discomfort.  And for me the big thing was some form of entertainment.  I got bored just lying around so use this time to read some books or watch movies you haven't had time to, but then also don't forget to walk around several times a day.  Stretch your calf muscles and keep that circulation flowing.

Well 4 more days until the big day and my nerve...

Well 4 more days until the big day and my nerve are shot I keep asking myself if I'm doing the right thing and maybe I will regret this and the other half is saying it isn't worth the back pain and sleeping in a bra every night. Go to my pre op appointment tomorrow so I made sure to bring pictures of what I'm expecting and making sure we are on the same page just because when I went to the consultation it wasn't that real to me since I still had to get it approved from the insurance company. I bought a recliner got my button up nighty and straws lol!! My husband has told me to not worry he will take cae of everything so I hope so he really was a good nurse through my tummy tuk. I'm even going to ask the PS about maybe lipo on my flanks to see if I can get a little deal. Wish me luck!

You are going to do fabulously!  The nerves are completely normal.  I was wondering if I was making the right decision even as I was being wheeled to the operating room.  And trust me...I made the right decision!

Good luck!

Sorry for the delay so went to y pre op Monday and took my husband with me it went good feel like were on the same page told him I was aiming for perkys so if small D was going to hang on the side then make it a high C as long as it has the perk and I don't wake up to just nipples lol!! Why I was there I asked about the bulge tat hangs over the tank top and e told me my insurance won't cover this becuz it's cosmetic but he really fealt to match the back to the front he would recommond lipo my whole truck. The price quote was 2000 and I have until tomorrow to make my decision but he made shoould real good!!! Like I be a hottie lol!!! My husband thinks I should do it and I do have about that much stashed away left from my taxes so I'm really thinking about it. I know my self if I don't do it I know I will end up regretting it because I really want to wear a swim suit this year and the flank,under arms,love handles and sides are so hard to get rid of.. Anyone have any thoughts or did lipo with their breast reduction??

Hello Everyone sorry for the delay it's been a...

Hello Everyone sorry for the delay it's been a rough 3 days of being sick. So surgery lasted longer then expected and when I awoke there I was throwing up and just couldn't stop so I had to stay a little while before they would release me. I'll I culd be worried about is if I had boobs lol!!! They seemed so small to me and I don't know if its because I have been carrying those DDD around almost half my life. I been sleeping almost the last two days and had to get an around today because the drains were being removed so my husband took me to the Dr at 2:00 I was so sore from the lipo and I could feel all the tape that was wrapped on me so I knw it was going to hurt being removed. The Dr came in and laid me back and began to remove the drains which weren't bad at all but next was the tape coing off and I'll I could do was scream lol!! All the tender skin that had been lipo was now being ripped off lol!! I really hurt!!! Dr left the room and as stood up reality hit that I had little boobies it freaked me out I;m suppose to be a high C but if these are swollen they are going to be smaller. Now being able to see them I'm getting nervouse because one seems a little bigger than the other and the side kinda has a different shape. Everyone telling me to relax this is normal and they will be fine. Did anyone else experment this? I know I'm a huge perfectionist but I sure how this will go away and I'm normal on size and shape they Dr seemed to look at them and say everything looked fine but why when I came home and saw them I didn't feel the same? Is it just my nerves over reacting? Can anyone shed some light on this?

So today has been a rough day for me the tears will not stop falling. When I went to the Dr yesterday he told me everything looked fine but why do I see a dent on the side of my boob with a different shape I will have to get use to but the whole dent and slight shape is what I will not be happy with. On Monday I hope my Dr can ease my mind on this. I know its only been 4 days and I don't expect to be beautiful or perfect but please let me look normal this is alot to deal with. Well everyone thanks for listening to me I hhope this gets better.

Hi Motown girl,

Those look very nice to me! It's tough huh? You get all emotional and scared and angry afterward. Don't let it get you down. Aug. 5 last year I had my lift with tummy tuck Six months in and I have decided I MUST go back and have life done again. Everything is perfect about them, scars even fading BUT they are just too big. In my case I had implants 20 yrs ago to fill hangy boobs. So I already had the pockets there. Same CC's and PS said all my complaints about my boobs would be gone by removing skin. Yours seriously look great and ill look even better. You need 6 months really if not more.

above, I ment to say "lift" again not "life" funny
I think you look great, and I know they might seem shockingly small right now, but they are still really quite big! I like looking through the images on this site because I feel prepared for the phases my breasts might go through... For example, I remember one woman posting her pics and saying she hoped she was a full C... She had a LOT of swelling, and her doctor had really given her a lot of perkyness, so to me they looked like tiny mounds. I thought, "oh gosh this poor girl can't be more then a small B cup... She is going to be so upset!!" Well, once her breast dropped about a month later they were full, and walking that line right between C and D... AND they ended up being one of the most amazing pairs on the site because they are SO amazingly perky!! There was also another women who posted and I immediately thought "her nipples are not even at all! This poor girl. She will have to have a revision." A month went by and they were still very uneven. I felt terrible for her, then about four months out she posted pictures and they were PERFECT! It had just been swelling making them look uneven. They are in my opinion also one of the best pairs on the site. The simple fact is that if they looked gorgeous now they would probably heal to look weird. They are not supposed to look great three days out!! I can see that you are also stacked very high, and I bet they will drop, fill out, and be at least a C.

Hello everyone this has been I think one of the hardest things I have every done. I went to another follow up yestrday and the Dr seem to think everything fine but why do I not feel that way. He took the tape off and my left boob the incision lil more up on the boob unstead of the crease so at the end of the inscision I have a big knot of skin which he tells me just to massage in a circular motion and this will go away. Why do I find so hard to believe that message its going to make it go away. My left boob also little smaller wither a dent in the shape that he says give it time and evrything will work out. I knw its only been almost two weeks but Im really wish I shouldve just stayd with my large breast at least I was some kind of creature with them. I hope this gets netter son becuz right im,depressed about the decision I have made.

I got pics up from surgery go check it out. Let me know if I can help in any way!
Hello! I hope this finds you well. I know your post is over a year old, but I was researching "dent" in breast and found your review. I hope you don't mind if I ask, but did the dent resolve itself with massage? I had a breast lift 13 days and our breasts are very similar and I have a dent under my left breast on the outside. If you don't mind sharing, I would love to hear how it turned out. Thanks so much!
