I have been back and forth about having a reduction for the last five years or so. I am a busy mother of two teenage daughters and a 10 year old. I feel like it is finally time to do something for myself BUT I am chicken about "elective surgery".


I love to exercise , however my boobs have always gotten in the way. Running is out of the question, even with a good support bra. I have the usual neck and shoulder pain that comes from a large bust. I am currently a 40 DD. I consulted the PS with my husband and he said I would qualify. My insurance is covering the procedure, however the doctor suggested that a I go home with a pain pump. (NOt sure what that is) It is not covered by the insurance. Anyway, I am nervous, excited but really don't know how to prep or recover. My Pre OP appointment is next week, so I should have some more information. I need any advice, tips etc...

Question: Anyone have liposuction in conjunction with the surgery? My doctor recommends lipo on the side of my breasts.

July 30, 2012...Today is my pre op visit. Surgery is scheduled for August 15th. Of course I am second guessing my decision. I am looking forward to talking to the PS today. I am going on vacation the week before my surgery so I have to start thinking ahead! Any suggestions on items that I need to have on hand to make my life easier??

I am at my sixth week post op. Things are going well. I still have a scab that is taking sometime to heal. Side incisions are still painful but all in all so happy I did it!. I am a full C cup now but have yet to buy a real bra because them seem to change day to day.
Monday will be my first day back at my "boot" camp class. I would say it has taken the full six weeks for me to feel myself again. I am nervous about excersing again but I will ease myself into it. I am posting before and after pictures.
