From a 36 DD to a B cup and Extremely Satisfied - Farmington, CT

Its been about 15yrs that I've been waiting for a reduction. I've suffered tremendous pain in my back for a long time, suffered a horrible car accident, and just recently found out I have scoliosis. At only 5' tall, DD breasts were too much weight on my back. So as soon as I was approved, I went for it.Its only been a couple days since the reduction and I feel great. Very little soreness, but nothing I cant handle. Definitely worth it.

5 days post op

Today was my follow up but unfortunately I cant make it. I cant wait to see my PS. Im having a hard time with pain management because my Percocets make me drowsy and I have an 18 month old baby, so I kind of have to just deal with it until her father gets home. On a positive note, I tried on a shirt with no bra last night and I got so.excited when I saw my perky nipples through the shirt. Oh what a boost in self esteem.

forgot to post these pictures. 5 days post op

I need to relax

I went for my follow up yesterday and my PS is very pleased with my results. I got in trouble because my blood pressure was high and I explained how I've been stressed and the night before I had gotten into an argument and thought my boobs were gonna pop. I was explained that I can risk giving myself a hematoma and would need surgery again. Ugh I really need to learn to relax. I also havent gotten any help whatsoever since the surgery so there was no relax healing time for me. This is beginning to get really irritating

almost healed

So last night my boyfriend took off the sterry strips and I am super pleased with my results. Everything is healing beautifully. Only thing is I noticed my nipples arent the same size and one boob is bigger than the other. But they still look good

two weeks post op

I have Blue Shield. The surgery scheduler said they have about a 50/50 chance when they submit to insurance. The just have to stress that it's because of neck/back pain, etc.

I'm sort of freaked out b/c my PS took about 250 ml from each breast. I was 32DD and was very clear to him that I wanted to be SMALL...like a small B. I'm almost three weeks post op and i can still wear a 32DD bra...and it fits! I'm really trying to stay calm and be patient, knowing that some of it is swelling, but finding it hard to believe that they are going to get much smaller. How much did your PS take from each breast...and when did you notice swelling going down? Thank you!

Thanks ladies, my ps told me the trick is.to.leave the sterry strips on for the first few weeks. It helps with the healing tremendously. I cant wait for the next week to.go by though, im dying to be able to.walk around with no.bra and no.sterry strips

Remember to put yourself first, and make yourself a priority. Find free short yoga or mediation sessions on YouTube, and treat yourself each evening before bed. My Bp has always been borderline high despite the fact that I eat right, exercise, don't smoke or drink. I think its part hereditary and part stress. It's so tough to control the stress in our lives, but if we don't take care of ourselves who will? Your breasts look beautiful btw, yay! Take care.

You look great - I am 10 weeks post-op and I had issues with pain plus I have a 2 year old daughter and 3 year old twins so it was interesting but i made it through it and I now feel great and love the way my breast feel and look.
