I'm 17 years old, and my current bra size is 75D (a bit too small), and I've been living with big breats in a way too long period of my life. When I was 11 years old I started growing breasts. They looked normal compared to my age, height, and weight. My puberty started early, and I got my first period at 8-9. I was the first one in my class to even start puberty, and I was always ahead of my classmates (girls) when it came to developing breasts. In 7th grade, I was a 75D, and started to notice problems when I was exercising (jogging), as well as some of my clothes weren’t fitting.
As the years went on, and my breasts kept growing, I would ask my mom for a breast reduction every Christmas or birthday, to which she’d reply that I wasn’t old enough. It wasn't until I saw a video on YouTube of a 15 year old getting a reduction, I confronted my mom properly. We went to a doctor who referred me to a surgeon who was going to consider whether I was getting a reduction or not. My mother and I almost didn't get to greet the surgeon before he told me to undress. I felt a little uncomfortable at first, but I was hoping for the best. After a few seconds he told my mother he was only looking at the area where he was going to operate. I almost couldn't believe my ears, and neither could my mother. I was close to jumping of joy, tough I knew I had to stay calm as he was still examining me. He told me I was getting the reduction after the summer, and it made me so unexplainable happy.
After the summer, I finally got the breast reduction I always wanted, and I was so excited to see my new breasts! I was a bit worried about the scars at first, (the doctor and surgeon warned me about it multiple times because of my dark skin color) but I figured out it was a price to pay. I was finally going to get normal boobs! Weeks after the reduction my mother helped treating me with bandages and other things. I was a bit unsatisfied, but mother told me they still looked big due to the swelling. It has been almost eight months, and I still feel they're a bit big. The surgeon told me my size was going to be something in between B-C, but my size is currently D, and it's a bit too small. I can't say I'm totally unsatisfied, because I feel like a huge weight has been lifted from my back, and I know I'm going to have these breasts for the rest of my life, but I'm still having a bit trouble finding bikinis. The scars don't look too good, and my left nipple is bigger than the right... What am I supposed to think? What do you think?

The surgeon was a nice and polite man. He explained most things so there weren't that many questions. The payment went easy, and I was given the reduction at the time that was planned. Sadly the surgeon never contacted me and my mom again, even though we were supposed to send a letter about the progress after the surgery (we forgot) but we're planning to do it as soon as possible.
