I have had extremely large breast every since I was in elementary. I am currently at a 38F and very uncomfortable with the size of my breast, as well as experiencing severe back,neck and shoulder pain. I was rejected for a breast reduction in 2003. I decided to go to a different surgeon and try again. This time my insurance approved it, and I am really excited to be having my surgery on March 2 at 1pm. I love reading the experiences on this site, they really help to calm my nerves. Two of my sisters have had this surgery as well. I guess you can say big breast is an inheritance in our family. I look forward to keeping you posted on my experience.

So I am getting closer to my sugery date. I received my paperwork from the hospital and that made me nervous. I set my quit smoking date for this Sarurday. That will be a challenge! I purchased nice pajamas and lounge wear that button up. I even bought some fun DVDs. I am getting really excited. I cant wait to toss the big bras.

Well one week away and I want to smoke so bad. Has anyone out there continued to smoke prior to surgery? I am going to just fight it!!! Anyhow, I am very excited,and cant wait to see my new boobs. I think I am going to have a bonfire with the old bras. I have not purchased any sport bras. My PS told me to hold off until He did the surgery and could better fit me. I cannot wait to get some sports bras. I could never fit into them before. I will post before and after pics after my drains are removed on 3/5.

Just days away and I am so excited, My surgery is on this Friday. I went for my pre-op with my MD today. I am doing good with my not smoking. I have been feeling great, but I was told that the cravings will really start after the surgery. I hope this is not true. Oh, I went to Barnes and Noble on Saturday and bought a few books to read while I am laid up. My surgery does not start until 1pm, I have to be there by 11am, on Friday. I plan on sleeping until 9:45am, since I cannot eat or drink, it will keep my mind off of a good cup of coffee.

Well it is the night before surgery, and I am very anxious. I just bathed my little one and combed her hair, and getting ready to go out to eat with the hubby and daughter. I will be NPO after midnight so gotta eat good before hand. I will post pics on Monday after my drains are removed. Wish me luck folks.

Hello all. I feel great right now. I have been sleeping alot. Anyhow, my surgery went well today. What a huge difference. I am suppose to be a small c cup. I can see my stomach. Lol. The surgery took 2 hours. I recovered for 2.5 because i couldnt wakeup and when I did wake up, I was very sick with nausea and pain. The painis much better and I am in bed resting. I bought a pillow from Walmart with the arms on it for 12.88. It is really comfy and keeps me on my back. I also bought my button up pajamas from Walmart too. Make sure you were a hoodie to your surgery and sweats. I hope this helps those of you who are waiting for your date. I love my new look.

Had my post op appointment today. The drainage tubes were removed during this appointment and honestly, I really did not even feel them being taken out. My boobs are a little swollen, however they look great. I was very impressed when the bandages were removed. I am excited because I get to shower today (yay me). I am really constipated from the surgery, and just bought some exlax. I was advised to wear cami tops for the first 2 weeks, so I went to WalMart and bought a cami in every color. This is one of the best things that I have ever done for myself. I love it. See my pics.

4 days post op today and everday seems to be a better day for me. I also do have feeling in both nipples!!!!!!

2 weeks post-op. I feel great and I look great. My self esteem has went through the roof!!! I lost 3 pounds from the surgery. I will have my staples removed on Monday. Yay!!!! This was the best decision ever.

Also, I have one more thing to add. I HAVE NOT SMOKED IN 31/2 WEEKS AND I HAVE NO DESIRE TOO!!!!

I had my 2 week post op appointment today. ...

I had my 2 week post op appointment today. Actually, I am two days over, however, Doctor informed me today that he removed 900 grams per side, thats a total of 1800. I knew I was huge but not that huge. Lol. Also, I had my staples removed and that was a relief. I was informed that the only thing I could do for the itching would be to take benadryl orally. I can begin to use vitamin E oil in 1 week. Whoo Hoo!!! I return to see Doctor in 1 month. I am ready to shop for some sexy colorful bras with matching undies now. Gonna be a little different wearing something other that black, beige and white. :-)

Hello, does anyone have a remedy to help with the itching??? I am 2 days shy of being 4 weeks post-op, my boobs look great, however they are peeling and itching like crazy. I have been using Vtamin E oil daily but wondered if anyone had any other ideas other than benadryl. Thanks.

It has been one month and 1 day since my surgery. ...

It has been one month and 1 day since my surgery. Hard to believe this Friday will be 5 weeks since surgery. I am still not smoking and feeling pretty good. I am continuing to use my vitamin E oil that my PS recommended I use. The itching seems to be relieved with ice packs thanks to all who recommended that. I am just now able to sleep on my side, but I must have a pillow tucked under me. Other than that I am feeling fantastic. Please see pics.

I also bought a few soft cups bras this weekend for when I am ready to wear them. They are a 38 C, hot pink and baby blue. I am excited about this.

Well, I went to my PS yesterday for myt 6 week check up and I am healing perfectly. I have been released of all restriction and am now able to return to full speed workouts and more. I am so happy with my boobs.

Hello all! Haven't been on in a while, but all is well. I was so excited to be able to shop at Victoria Secrets! I actually can wear a 38D from there but I bought a few more bras that were a 38C! I am told that Vicky Secrets bras tend to run one size smaller. I believe that to be the case. I am really loving the new me other than, I now have a small pooch, thinking about a tummy tuck!

Dr. Han is excellent, he was on time and performed the surgery in 2 hours. After I was home for a few hours Dr. Han himself gave me a call to see how I was doing.
