I'm 24, 5'6" and 135 lbs. I recently was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease. My breasts had always been large but this was the final straw and I took the plunge. Before surgery I wore a 34DD because finding a discreet 32DDD/E was rather impossible. My back pain was becoming chronic and impacting my ability to excerise.
I was very nervous about the idea of anchor or lollipop incisions and felt that since I wasn't an extreme size trying to acheive a drastic reduction that traditional techniques were not for me. I wasn't so much concerned with lift and perkines but rather just weight. So I had a 'scarless' breast reduction: liposuction of each side through a 1/2 inch incision under each breast. Less trauma and a faster recovery time.
My surgeon was prepared to remove the necessary tissue through micro excision if it turned out my breast were very glandular but he was able to remove the amount we discussed through lipo only.
My surgery was yesterday and recovery has been a breeze. My under arms are sore and I am still bloated from the IV, but my breasts didn't even bruise. Saw quite a bit of drainage yesterday but today has been smooth sailing.
What a difference a week makes. If it weren’t...

Until yesterday I guess I was still very swollen. With out the bra they still seemed quite large and I was anxious I had gone through surgery only to come out with deflated versions of what I had before. Things seem to have contracted and tightened over the last 48 hours and while I hope they continue to do so, there is visible improvement in my before and afters. I see my surgeon on Tuesday when I’ll be sure ask how much was removed and what he expects my new cup size to be.
