Would like to say a big THANK YOU for ever one who has shared there story here it has helped me so much . I do not any one that has had a BR so this site has been great for tips and advice . OK I am 37 and been wanting this done for a long time tried on the NHS but that did not get me any were and was a waste of time. So decided to pay for it myself which was not easy as its a hell off a lot of money .Once I got the money together I went to my GP and he recommended eva mithoff. She was my first consultation but I liked her and so did my mum so went for it . The only thing is that she will not show before or after pic,s which I would have like to have seen .But she has a great reputation so fingers crossed lol . Have my pre op on the 12th nov hopefully ever thing will go ok bit nervous . Stopped smoking on the 5th which is only 2 days at this point really hard as I am nervous as it is but has to be done . Oh my girls are a saggy 32 G hoping for a 32D .Will put pic,s up when I get some will have to ask one of my friends to help lol not xxxx

Not been sleeping to good keep getting these nervous twitches at night when in bed strange . Still doing good off the fags going out tonight so will have to stay strong . But can,t wait to get this done .tried to take some pic,s this morning but they were really bad have asked my friend to help so will get some up once she has time xxx


thank you tried that but the flash is really bright will try again . Yeah been eat lots off veg and drinking loads off water had to pee 8 times last night at work lol x
haha re peeing. It can't hurt you to increase your fluid intake. I don't mean take a pic of the mirror I mean look in the mirror to see the view screen of your camera, the camera lens should be pointing at you. I hope I made sense.

Pre op tomorrow getting very excited woohoo !!!!

Hi All! New to this site, but it's so helpful & informative..yay! I'm due to get my reduction on the 15th Dec in Thailand. I'm a 34 F 33 & 10 stone, i wan't to go to a C. I'm nervous about so much, e.g do you have to stop taking the pill? My contact at the hosp said i could carry on taking antidepressants, but i havn't mentioned that i take precribed pain killers..(due to a bad accident) I'm scared i can't take them too?! Sorry to unload like this but if anyone can help with my questions that would be amazing! How long until you get your stitches out? & has anyone used the silicone strips you put over your scars? Anyone else doing the Thailand thang also? I really don't know where to put all this, but please feel free to comment away! Cheers x

Has anyone felt the same I new the min I saw them then were to small xxx will put pic up tomorrow xxxx


Ur feelings r normal it takes awhile for ur eyes to adjust. I felt mine were bigger than what I want but then when my sister in law told me today I looked great I was floored. She is not one for compliments!! So I am feeling happier with them each day xxxx

You have been through a lot...This is something that is a huge change in your life. Take a breath and just concentrate on your recovery. It is so hard to judge them now. My girls went through so many different changes/looks. I am now at a month and cant believe how they have changed. Heel well and take care of yourself. Your emotions r going to be all over Just understand the trauma your mind and body just went through.

Sorry I have not been in touch been so tired had a rash over my body which was driving me mad could not sleep for itching for 4 weeks but its cleared up know. So I LOVE MY NEW BOOBS thank god it was just a big shock at first. Been taking it easy and resting alot .The boobs are still sensitive the right one is the naughty one it is still swollen and slightly brused .About 5 days ago I was taking my tape off and gunk ran out of my downward scar it was mostly blood but I had a hole that you could stick a pen in about 2cm when to hospital and nurse cleaned it for me there was no infection thank god seen my ps today and she thinks I was spiting a stitch the hole is nearly mended together to use inadine and plaster so glad that it looks better got new flesh coloured tape today which looks better. Put all my pics on be glad to delete them from my phone was so scared incase I lost it and everyone saw my frankenstein boob lol x Hope you,s are all well and healing nicely xxxxx

Hey nini, I am having my consult with Mrs Mithoff soon for a breasts reduction. Can you please update us with pictures. What did u use for the scars?
  • Reply
Hey, I have a consult with Mrs Mithoff on the 19th and I'm a bit nervous! How long did your scars take to heal and how long did it take you to recover? Like not fully recover, but after the surgery I have uni work to do, do you think it would take a while to get back to doing that kind of stuff? Thanks! x

Hi Maxo21, I will be having a consult with Mrs Mithoff very soon, and am nervous too. How did you find your consultation, I heard Mrs Mithoff is very nice and of the top surgeons in UK.

GP suggested I go see her and she was really nice .She is one of the uk,s top 10 breast reconstruction surgeons so that can only be good x
