Finally Losing my Jugs -Nashville, TN

My surgery was just yesterday so I am not sure how...

My surgery was just yesterday so I am not sure how I like the result (haven't seen them yet), but already feel so much lighter. My girls were 36G and that was from bras that were fitted 2 years ago and the underwire had stopped going between so probably was even larger. I wanted to go to a 36B but my surgeon said it was probably going to be a 36C so he didn't have to mess with the nerves or cause necrosis. I just said a million times to go as small as he could. He told my husband after the surgery that he hopes I am not disappointed that they won't be itty bitty. I wanted this surgery to relieve back pain, be able to exercise without flopping, to be able to wear cute shirts for the first time ever, so be able to buy a bathing suit at a regular store without a full underwire granny bra. I turned 38 on Tuesday so this was a kind of birthday present. Also, I have been avoiding a colostomy bag post-radiation in 2008 for many reasons. One is vanity. So I thought maybe I would get up the gumption to get that done if my boobs weren't in my lap too. Jury is still out on that decision. I love to swim so I don't know what to do on the bowel incontinence front. And my best friend just had a baby at 38 and I watched her baby for a week at her house while she recovered from a tummy tuck and lift/implants. Her going through with it and not dying gave me the courage. I wish I would have done this sooner, but I had so many cancer surgeries at 32-34 that I was not ready for more surgery. I absolutely cannot wait to loose my back fat now so I can buy cute shirts!!!

Your new boobies are beautiful! :) I love my new small boobies too!! :) Congratulations on getting the drains out. My drains are supposed to come out this Friday. Before the surgery I was hoping I wouldn't need drains, but since my surgery yesterday, I've emptied out a total of 160 ml so far, so I am REALLY glad he put drains in!! Keep resting and listening to your body so you can take good care of your beautiful new boobies!!

I say go for it! Although I did wait until I was done nursing babies first. My youngest is almost 14 now. But I have otherwise hated my chest since they suddenly came in in 8th grade! I'd say do it whenever it is right for you and don't put it off as long as I did!

Thx :-) but my mom is so unsupportive so I scheduled a consultation by myself but I don't think they will perform on someone my age though:-(
