Breast reduction, asymmetry and lift.

Back pain, neck pain, bilateral asymmetry, not...

Back pain, neck pain, bilateral asymmetry, not able to do any physical activities like running, rashes and grooves in shoulders. Like most of you, I have battling huge sagging breasts since I have been 9 years old. WORST of all my right breast is around 2 cup sizes larger then my left breast and they sag. The left one is 36D and right is 36DDD. My nipples have also become different sizes.

I have had two kids and I am now 27 and its time to get rid of this physical and emotional pain once and for all. I cant wear a bathing suit or any bra without it looking really bad. The right boob pokes out of ever bra I wear, and I am so ashamed of them. FINALLY I got an approval from insurance and now that its realistic I am starting to back out slowly.

My doc is gr8. He told me he will lift them really well during surgery, but he I will only be a Bigger b cup or smaller c. I think A ,B CUP is small but at this point, I will do anything to get rid of this nasty sight, thats how emotionally drained I am. Then I have those close family members who are judgmental and say I dont really need it, please look at the photo and give me your advice. Most people who say I dont need it, have not seen them bare.

I am worried about the recovery and the surgery. How will I breathe during surgery? What is the pain like after. I have a 5 month old baby who is about 18 pounds, will I Be able to hold him?, if not for how long? I also have a three year old who is needy. I plan on breaking the news to mother tomorrow so that she can help.. How long will I need her for after surgery, as shes real busy. Will the pain be unbearable? Is this something I can totally hide under my shirt after say a week or so?

I have lots of family functions and I dont want them to notice I am missing more then a week. Like will I be able to get dressed and hide this a week later..? ALSO do they put a breathing tube down my throat? I am so scared. Please someone who has done this with kids give me some advice. Do they look that bad? Should I GO FOR IT? Is it worth it?

Also I just lost 60 pounds and I workout 5x a week for 2 hours, mainly cardio like stair master, elliptical because I havent been able to run from my saggy boobs.. I do not want to gain this weight back at all bc I am sitting at home, How do i avoid that, and when can I return to the gym?

Im also finishing up my last dosage of phentramine that a weight loss doctor prescribed to me, I think I have to be off this medicine for surgery? right? like a week before? Please give me opinions and answers!!!My doc can answer but I prefer answers from someone who is been in my shoes.

Good Luck, Emma! You will be on my mind today! Wishing you all of the best!

My doctor is amazing so far... He told me he will lift them really well during surgery, and put my mind at ease about the whole procedure.. but he I will only be a Bigger b cup or smaller c.Then I have those close family members who are judgmental and say I dont really need it, but who are they to decide?

Dr Dewolfe- Lagrange, IL

Dr Dewolfe is an amazing doctor, really I am not just saying it, he is one that cares from point A to point Z, and you will feel ease and comfort while talking to him. Throughout the whole procedure he was very descriptive and answered any questions I had without me even asking them, its like he could read my mind! I walked out feeling so great after my consult, and its pretty rare to find a doctor who really cares in the Chicagoland area! I strongly urge you to visit him for a consult:)
