My motivation for having a breast reduction is my belief is that these "jugs" are overrated. I have nursed three children in a 2.5 years!!! So needless to say, the elasticity and heaviness of my breast are in full effect. I have been considering this surgery for 2 years. Now, I am so so ready to go!
Ladies, I first would like to tell all of you that...

My pre-op is on Friday, July 7th, and I am more than excited. The doctor is having me get a mammogram prior to the surgery (I am 34 years old; however, I have zero health background on my father's side of the family). After reading all of your posts, I now feel armed with the appropriate questions to ask. Again, thank you!!!
Oh, I will post pics a little later... :-)
Well here's a little more information about me......

So, my initial appointment with the PS started with my OB/GYN. I scheduled an appointment with my OB/GYN because of serious tenderness in my breast area every time I removed my bra! My OB said the pain could be hormonal, or it could be due to the heavy sag of my breast... I suggested the later was the issue... LOL
Any who, met with the PS, whom I might add is FABULOUS!!! Met with Dr. Jewel, and she was so kind and nice. She took all of my considerations and concerns and placed me at ease. After meeting with her, the business manager came into the room and explained the process to me and if I was not approved for the surgery, they would resubmit and more than likely receive an approval. Well two weeks after I met with her, I received a phone call stating the insurance company wanted more information regarding my back and neck pain... They also wanted to know if I had any brusing or rashes under my breast... Well Anthem, of COURSE I DO!!! So about one week later, the business manager called me back and said... I have great news for you... well, I screamed and jumped up and down. This was in March, nonetheless!!! So now, July, yes JULY, almost four month later, I am awaiting my surgery. Nervous, excited, at peace, waiting to drop these underwires!!!!
Ladies that workout, how long before you were able to do non-aerobic workouts? I do not mind being able to do light weights on the lower-half of my body. I do kickbox, and figure it'll be about 6 weeks before I can return to that; however, I do plan to walk slowly on the treadmill in my garage after my second week. Thanks for your help in advance...
Eeeek!!! Just left my pre-op and I am pissed......

Oh, she told me a sports bra is just fine, and I am happy about that. She told me after a week or so, if I am going out and need to take my bra off for a couple of hours that would be fine. That is so great to hear because my anniversary is 8/4 and I want to wear something sexy and STRAPLESS or at least off of one shoulder. I am so freakin' happy ladies! I feel like I am prepared and ready to rock and roll. I have been waiting three months for this and ready to be on the road to recovery. Thank you ladies for your encouragement!
OH! My follow up is one day after surgery and then again one week later... :-)
So, I am home after an early start SIX AM TO BE...

Currently I am in shock with the size; however, I do believe that is because I was used to my milk jugs - is this normal ladies? She did not remove my nipple actually... Just looked... So hopefully It is just really numb.
Overall, I am beyond happy, my posture is better, scar is minimal... If you are pondering I say go for it... You just may be pleased!
Oh, the doctor called my husband after and told him I would be pleased, and she is right, I am. I did not speak with her after; however, I will see her tomorrow.
Today is day three into recovery and yesterday was...

My Doctor: Join to view doctor's name
I selected Dr. Jewel after a referral from my fab OB/GYN. I met with her, she was super sweet and informative... Not to mention available to answer any and every question I had for her! She has got to be the nicest doctor with confidence and wonderful bedside manner. I would select her again and again and again....
