Hi!!! First off i would like to say THANK YOU to all of you brave ladies!! I have had big boobs my whole life... My Bra is a 38DDD but u honestly don't even know my true size. I have thought about getting a breast reduction as long as i can remember. For Some reason i was always embarrassed ... Well about a month ago i got some courage made a doctors appointmet and asked my Doctor. i am covered by Kaiser, i had no idea what to expect!!!! My doctor told me i would have to take a class and two weeks later i did. I was So damn nervous... but when i walked in, i would say 20 other women were there ages 18-70. Right before you walk in they weigh you and measure you . I'm 5'3 1/2 and 167lbs. ( i will try my hardest to drop weight before my surgery) later i come to find out it was to find out what my BMI was. according to them you must be under 34% body fat ( under 30 is ideal ) i was 28% woohoo lucky me! The only other thing i was asked if i smoked, they would disqualify you due to infection. ( lucky for me i don't smoke ) they told me the class would be 2-3 hours. i was out after 1hour. i would say the nurse answered all my questions. at the very end if your BMI was under 34% they had you fill out a paper and the PS would call . i couldn't believe it i was one step closer!!!!!
By the time i got home the office was calling for my first visit with my plastic surgeon . Yes, my heart was racing!!!!
i would say 2 weeks later i was making my way to my appointment , by the time i signed in i was being called! it was all so fast! before i knew it i was being told to put on a gown and the doctor would be right in. The doctor walked in and he was a lot younger then i had thought hahaha.. i got embarassed he said i know i'll be quick. He took messurements and pictures and then sat down. He just said, do you have any burning questions for me? I'm looking at him confused! i said , wait.... am i approved? he was like oh yeah totally. i think i started giggling like it was christmas. He then asked what size i wanted to be, i said a C .the bummer is he told me i will need drains.. that is totally scary for me. idk why the pre op is really freaking me out too!!! can anyone tell me what to expect I'm totally nervous!!! but that is where I'm at right now... I'm scared to death, and i keep obsessing on here. but i thought maybe even my experiences could help someone. :) i really hate being known for the girl with boobs! I'm Sooooo ready for small boobs!!!!!! my suregery date is Oct.7th, i needed time bc of work. I'm a waitress so i had to take 3 weeks off. here is a picture i took and i can't believe I'm showing all of you!
Hi!!! First off i would like to say THANK YOU to...
I have a question
Can anyone give me a list of things i might need? i think its better to ask the people who have actually had the surgery :) Any special sports bra you all love? lotions? ??? please let me know what helped YOU ! THANK YOU
Do you think we will still have boob sweat with small boobs? lol... i know TMI but I'm so ready for that to end :D... Happy sunday friends,
Am i the only one that is freaking out here!? I know i still have a lot of time before my surgery... i keep looking at myself in the mirror, and thinking am i doing the right thing? I hate having big boobs but I've never known myself any other way.. I really think this is a little overwhelming. Every night i come on here and look at like 5-10 pages.. hahaha and then i'm up all night thinking about it. I'm so grateful for your stories but some of them really freak me the hell out! I can't be the only one feeling this way right!?
The doctors office called me today to see if i wanted to have my surgery this week. I so badly wanted to say yes.. but I'm just not ready and i already took 3 weeks off of work when my original surgery is on oct 7th. I can't believe how quickly this is all happening !!!! Just a little over a month to go!!!!!!! So ready!!!!!
okay i'm really starting to get nervous.... Am i the only one that knows nothing about her doctor??? i mean i met him but i was so nervous i didn't ask many questions, i wasn't thinking!!! With Kaiser there are no pics to look at... what are your thoughts?
Okay.. I know a lot of you are skinny... and i don't think i'm like super fat but I'm kinda chubby.. Anyone feel diff when you had your boobs done? Do you feel skinnier over all? i feel like it will make me feel way better, well i hope anyway..i'm so sick of feeling FAT!
