I have really enjoyed reading everyone's experiences. This site is what helped finally decide to go through with this procedure. I am 27, 5'2 and approximately 160 pounds. My current bra size is 36DDD or 36E. I have always had large breasts but they really got huge about 5 years ago. My mother had her reduction around that time and she said its the best thing that she ever did.
I started noticing upper back and shoulder pain and grooves from my bra straps and decided to look into getting rid of the girls. I did a lot of research on doctors in my area, this website and on the surgery itself. After corresponding with a few doctors I made an appointment for a consultation for January 6th. The appointment went well, the doctor asked me questions about what I wanted and answered all my questions and described the procedure in depth. He made me feel very comfortable. The office manager gathered my insurance info took pictures and let me know she would contact me as soon as the insurance company made a decision to cover the surgery. I waited about three weeks ad didn't hear anything. I emailed the office manager and she called the insurance company herself, I had a letter in the mail about 4 days later from UHC.
I walked into my apartment with jitters because I was so nervous! When I finally got the letter open I was beyond ecstatic, I was approved! I called my PS office the next day to schedule the surgery. My surgery is set for March 14th. I am soooo nervous! My mother will be staying with me for almost a week and besides the fact shes had this surgery, she's a nurse so that helps calm my nerves. Unfortunately, I'm a smoker, I didnt quit, but I have cut back. I know they say it slows down healing, but hopefully it won't be too bad. I am so ready to be pain free! I will try posting a before picture tonight. Any comments or advice please comment!

I did have to take a laxative :-( all of these meds have done a number on my digestive system. I've also been pretty bloated. I've barely ate a full meal because I always feel full (must be a part of the constipation) I do have one concern, while changing my bandages I noticed a few different colors on the old bandages. A little green red and light yellow, sounds crazy! Nothing smells weird, nothing is hot to the touch, and no pain or fever so I'm pretty sure there's no infection. And it is not a lot of drainage at all. Anybody else experience anything similar? All in all I'm beyond happy with the results and I wish I would have done it years ago! I've also been officially smoke free for 10 days now :-D and I do not have the desire to start again.
So many positives as a result of this surgery, I can't wait until I'm fully healed and start shopping for the summer dresses I love! That's all for now! Thanks for all the kind comments and feel free to ask me anything about my experience?
All is going really well so far! I went to work...
