I'm so glad I found Real Self. The support and encouragement here is amazing! Like most of us here, I've had big breasts my whole life. By 9years old I had my first bra and by high school, I was already in a c cup. At my biggest, I was an E cup but having lost 13kg, I'm in a DD now. The downside of losing all my weight is how badly they now sag and consequently, my neck and upper back has worsened - a LOT. I'm seeing my chiropractor almost three times more often than I did prior to my weight loss. So, I decided it was finally time to do something about it. My GP (regular physician) told me I was 'a prime candidate' for BR when I went to her for the referral to my PS, which I found really encouraging.

The PS made me feel really comfortable and after seeing him, I was more certain than ever that this is what I want to do. My surgery is scheduled for 21st March and I can't wait!

3 weeks to go! I'm really excited for this surgery...

3 weeks to go! I'm really excited for this surgery and just can't wait for the time to be here already. I've received pre-op paperwork from my PS last week, so it's all feeling a bit more real now. I found out I'll have waterproof dressings after surgery, so I'll be able to shower right away, which is great. No under wire bras and no heavy lifting, sport or exercise for 3-4 weeks. All good with me!

I forgot to mention in my last post that my stats are 5', 128lbs, wearing a 36dd bra. I'm working on losing another 4-5lbs before my surgery, which will have me at my goal weight finally!

My pre-op appt is on March 11th and surgery March 21st.

Two weeks to go today! I'm excited and just...

Two weeks to go today! I'm excited and just waiting as the days pass now. I'm looking forward to an end to the neck pain and being able to wear button down tops without them gaping at the front. I have my second consult with my PS coming up n Monday 11th and I plan to ask about what post op medications or creams I should have ready. Oh, and I'm dreaming about the surgery almost every night. Excited much? Lol.

Less than 1 week to go! I'm so excited now, just focussing on not getting sick and trying to be patient while the days pass. Just uploading some photos of the top that inspired my final decision to proceed with looking into surgery and a dress I hope I'll be more comfortable with in future ;)

It's my turn! I have to be at the hospital in about 10 hours. I'll update when I can. Healing thoughts and prayers to everyone heading in to surgery over the next few days!

Day two and I'm feeling great. It feels quite tight around my chest but not painful. Dr said they will swell over the weekend, so I imagine they'll get tighter yet! Just updating another pic coz they looked so tiny & cute when I got dressed! I can't believe that's me!

Welcome Wendy:)

I am so happy that you joined us and also very excited for you.  You are going to feel like a new woman soon.   You will be amazed at how light and free you feel after this surgery.  And no worries they will also be lifted and perky.

Glad to have you here with us.
