After some consideration and consultation with my mother and grandmother (who are super amazing and supportive) we decided to make an appointment to meet with the PS and discuss whether or not I should have a BR. He said I would be a perfect candidate. I am 18 and have been a size 36 DDD/G for about a year and a half. I've always been rather busty but it wasn't until I was trying on dresses for my senior prom that I noticed how big I really was. (It should have been a clue when I put on 2-3 sports bras for working out) I think I had a bit of Big Boob Denial... Anyways, I've always had back, neck, and shoulder problems since I broke my arm freshman year of high school in a snowboarding accident. I swam in high school before that and continued after, which didn't really help things much. Prom dress shopping was really the breaking point. When I met with the PS early this month, he said it could happen either in a few weeks or over winter break in college. So we waited and heard that it could happen the 27th. I was over the moon when I found out!!! Finally I wouldn't have to worry about squeezing into multiple sports bras or making sure I didn't get the dreaded double-boob anymore! And the best part is that it is before I start college so no one will know anything different. People from home would say "WOW your boobs are HUGE" like it was a compliment but, in all honesty, it made me feel super self conscious, especially if it was coming from a guy. Another thing I'm looking forward to is being able to walk into Target or wherever and pick a swimsuit off the rack versus having to order them offline. I'm just nervous about being put under because I've never had to be before. Also a little uneasy about the recovery, though I'm sure my ma and grandma will be on it like nobody's business. I hope that I'll be able to workout easier, that the numbness and strain on my back and shoulder will disappear and that I'll just feel better. I know it might take a little while but I'm hoping it'll be worth it. I have the pre-op appointment in Winston Salem tomorrow!

Having the procedure has severely impacted my day to day life in a very positive way. Honestly, I cannot even remember what it was like to have gargantuan boobs and I am so glad.
