My breast reduction procedure is only a few days...

My breast reduction procedure is only a few days away and I am beyond excited! I am currently a J cup (when I actually thought I was a G) and I cannot wait to go down to a ittie bittie C cup. I am absolutely TIRED of feeling self conscious about my breast. I am ready to get rid of the pain of wearing bikinis that strain my neck, and the limitations of wearing backless tops and dresses!
My doctor recommended that I do the traditional procedure (the inverted "T" scape) but I guess I'm fine with that as long as the outcome looks good. What I am most nervous about however is the scarring, and the discomfort during sleep... how many pillows will I need to be comfortable?? I'm scared to see what my breast will look like with the fresh scars, do you guys recommend any scar removal creams or gels to maximize the healing process??
I will definitely upload some pictures for you guys and keep you posted because I think this forum is an amazing outlet for support and receive great advice about the procedure.
OMG MY PROCEDURE IS TOMORROW!! I am feeling so...

I was scared to see the scars but to my surprise they looked very tight and neat and it is clear he took his time with me. The only thing though is that I cannot do the #2 in the toilet, it's like it just wouldn't come out. I barely ate for the first 2 days so maybe that's whats causing the hold up but hopefully I do it soon, I feel so heavy! Not to mention my period just came last night.. great. Once I'm able to be mobile I will indeed be doing some squats because my poor bottom is taking all the pressure from laying on my back for so long. I attached some pictures for you guys and I am excited to hear your progress too!
My Doctor: Thomas P. Sterry, MD
I did quite a bit of research on Dr. Sterry as well as other doctors. I knew I wanted to get the procedure done this year so I was looking for a consultation that worked around my school schedule and once I met him I was hooked! He is so personable and welcoming and everyone in the office made me feel so comfortable. My mother met him a few days ago and loved him and that made me feel even better about my choice. I am confident that he will do a remarkable job and I am elated that I am finally getting my breast reduction.
