32H to 32D - United Kingdom

I am day 4 post op, I was petrified about the op. geared myself up for the worst experience, I've had 2 babies and this was no where near as bad as that! I haven't had the bandages off yet so I am expecting that to be bad. I have a 2 year old to look after and am coping well. I struggled to buy bras and find clothes to fit. I wish I'd done it earlier

Just been to have my bandages removed. So pleased...

Just been to have my bandages removed. So pleased with my new boobs. Slight shock at how they looked and the smell!!! If you've ever cut yourself deep through a nerve - chefs would know this, the numb feeling you have, that how my bobs felt. Weird feeling!! The bra I bought was too small. I was estimated at 32 d. So I bought 32 ee but the back size wasn't big enough. I'm itching a bit. And feel a lot more open to the elements so am been cautious with everything I do, whereas before I was safe behind my bandages. Next appointment in 5 weeks!!!!

Day 8 post op. very sharp shooting pains in my boobs that take my breath away is this normal? My tummy is still swollen, but I haven't been for no2 since before my operation now, which is slightly worrying. I am a fussy eater so my poor diet is to blame I think. Still no shower and still can't drive, surgeon said to wait until Monday which would be 2 weeks. I so want to go shopping for clothes, but am resisting until the month is up!! Surgeon said I can then buy normal bra too. :-)

So tired today. Day 10. Feel like boobs have swollen even more. Belly still swollen aswell. Can't believe how tired I am! And still really emotional. Weird

Woke up at 1am, awake till 4.30am so again, extremely tired as my little ones wake up at 7am. Looking forward to having a shower tomorrow. What was everyone else's experiences at first shower? Did it hurt? What products have any uk b/r people used on their scars and did you use while stitches still there? Mine are dissolvable and I have no idea how long they take to dissolve?

2 weeks post op today. I took my plasters off last night just before I got into bed and took some photos. On my right side there was green puss on the plaster. I couldn't see any swollen areas but it is more bruised than other areas. I got a little upset. Don't get me wrong, I love the size but I got upset because they are just so different. I think my nipples have been put on too low. Be honest with me girls, I can take it!! Had a proper shower this morning. My boobs are so tender and sensertive it was difficult to enjoy the shower. Oh sound so ungreatfull. I'm just so tired still I think.

Went back to work today. Everyone commenting on my...

Went back to work today. Everyone commenting on my boobs gave me a right boost. My work colleges knew I was going into hospital for reduction. Why wouldn't I tell them, I was excited about it ! I'm tired now though. Nipples tender as I can feeling them rubbing against bra, which can only be a good sign? The bra starting to feel slightly loose which mat mean the swelling is starting to go down. Difficult to reach up high still but doing well. Showering to wash my hair is still off the cards so I still do that over the side of the bath. Getting shooting pains in the middle of my boobs which again I think is a good sign. I have had no need to take any meds apart from the first day I left hospital. Still tearful, but that's down to being tired I think. All in all doing well and loving my new tiny boobies!!

So, 4weeks 2 days post op. had I tiny spilt in wound on my left side. It's sore, but ok. Just keep finding blood on my bra. I've put sudocream on it and its healing nicely. I'm doing everything I did before my op apart from holding my 2 year old front on, she sits on my hip if I pick her up!! Now I need to start my diet and exercise to lose the belly fat !! Not as tired anymore, birthday on Sunday so hoping to go bra shopping!!!! New pictures added.

Hi girls. So haven't been on here for a while!!...

Hi girls. So haven't been on here for a while!! Had a busy Xmas and new year. Lots of parties and drinking!! My boobs have healed brilliantly. I had No problems other than a little scab on my right boob. It has left a darker scar. Just been to Tenerife in the sunshine, loved wearing my tiny bikini! Didn't care about the scars. I had the operation because I was unhappy with my size and pain I was in, the scars are the last worry to be honest. I'm proud of the scars!!! I am currently a 34 e as I put half a stone on over the Xmas period!! Just started back to my boogie bounce classes which was quite difficult, as continuous bouncing on a trampoline for an hour kinda hurt my boobs, and the next day....Jesus they hurt, I'd used muscles that had been sliced through I suppose so it was to be expected!! Here's to losing a stone now, then maintaining that weight!! Love my boobs, shape a still a little pointy, but its only been under 3 months.

8 months on

Hi all. Just a quick update and some pictures. My scars are really fading, they weren't a concern of mine anyway but I am pleased with them. I haven't used anything on the scars at all. I have put a stone on since my operation, which I am really disappointed with as it has increased my boob size but hopefully I will work that off. Without my bra my boobs are still pert, before they used to be touching my belly!!
