36GGG to 36DDD Not the C's I was looking for but still a huge relief!

I started with C's when I was about 14 now after having 3 kids I am a 36G. I've been to physical therapy the chiropractor been on pain meds you know the works Well 2 years ago my doctor suggested a BR but back then I was to scared idk what happened but one day I woke up in pain as usual and decided enough is enough I talked to my doctor (a new one) and she said I didn't look big at all huh? 36G and not big? I thought she was crazy after fussing with her for about a half hour she decided she'd let the PS make the final call so I made an appointment for a consult and here I am my pre-op is march 7th and surgery is march 27th. I am nervous and excited all at the same time I even wake up grabbing my chest (bad dreams) lol but I'm sure it will be worth it :-)

Welcome to RealSelf, Mrs. Thomas! The funny thing is right now you are waking up grabbing your chest, but since I've had my surgery I wake up holding them...I think to protect them from any harm because I don't want to do anything to lose them! Good luck!

LOL Thats great!! I'm sure I will be the same way when it's all said and done.
Well, your doctor is crazy for saying they arent big! I was a 36i before my surgery, I am not about a dd or so. the swelling hasnt gone down enough for me to get a proper measurement. And I had the nightmares too. But it really is easy. You go in and before you know it your going home. Your so drugged up you dont really care whats going on lol. Good luck with your pre op and surgery and keep us posted!

Today I had my pre-op to my surprise I had a little bit of a panic attack I'm not sure why because I had been excited all day to go but when I was their my heart was racing and I kept tearing however as soon as they called my name all was well. My PS staff was awesome and very helpful with answering all my questions and when I spoke to my PS he assured me he was very confident that I would do great and look great in the end as well I walked out of there with a smile on my face feeling great! Heres to a set of full perky C's come the 27th :-)

I have 14 days left to go before my surgery and I find my self getting really stressed out I guess the closer I get the more real it becomes. I'm so worried I will forget something at the day of the surgery like telling him that my right breast is a little larger he wants me to remind him and now I worry I will forget and have noticeably lop sided boobs lol. I also went out on the 10th to celebrate my 30th birthday and fell and sprained my ankle the gave me tylonal 3 hoping that wont affect anything I only took one pill tho I also noticed I seem to be exhausted but I believe that is due to being so excited that I cant sleep at night I stay up thinking about my surgery lol so I pay for it the next day. I think I'm going to wash all my clothes and get my day of bag ready to go :-) Oh also my mother did the coolest thing for my birthday she went to victoria secrets and got me a bra and panty set to remind me when I'm stressing or freaking out what its all about and how soon enough I can wear the pretty bras again lol I loved it :-)

The nerves and preoccupation are totally normal. And the Tylenol with Codeine shouldn't hurt anything. And since your boobs and the surgery are all you will probably be thinking about over the next two weeks, I bet you won't forget to metion that big girl to him! I'll be thinking of you!

I'm 10 days out and boy am I a big ball of emotions I find my self getting a little depressed but I'm so excited I don't understand why I am feeling like this. I've also noticed that I'm now terrified of getting sick because I don't want my surgery delayed at work I try to keep my distance from everyone I wish I could wear a mask but I work at a grocery and wouldn't want to alarm the shoppers. I keep telling my self all day time to sanitize lol we have a big bottle of hand sanitizer and it has become my best friend :-) I never thought that this surgery would have me obsessing over things but its been such an up hill battle and now that everything is set in stone and I'm on the path to a healthier happier less stress and pain free me I'm worried something will go wrong. Can it be the 27th already?? LOL well I guess I'll have to wait a few more days

Thanks Vivalv66! I figure I'll be a D as well we're aiming for 36C but We'll see lol my mom however did get a 36D so I'm hoping it'll fit when the time comes to wear it :-)
  • Reply
I'm looking at your pix thinking they looked similar to mine and that was big! That doc is crazy. I also work in a grocery store. The last few days people were getting sick. I ended up taking 3 days off before surgery just to be careful! My friend bought me a purple VS bra. It was a 36C. Way to small but a nice thought. I will exchange it later when all the swelling is gone. I'm pretty sure I'm a D cup. Good Luck!

I have the same worry and emotions! If something were to happen to keep me from having this surgery on April 10 I dont know what I'd do! Good luck Mrs. Thomas- I'll be watching for your updates!

So last night I showed my husband the bra and panty set my mother bought me from V.S. and he looked so sad like they where going to be too small I hope he still loves them when this is all said and done I am so worried he will not be as attracted to me as he is now :-( I know there was no intent by him for me to feel this way as soon as he seen my face he smiled and said they will be just fine. He is such a great guy and I know he loves me I just hope he still loves my outer shell as well when I have smaller breast. S.N. I have 8 more days I feel like it's the calm before the storm I'm so relaxed and comfortable with the fact of surgery lol Now heres hoping I don't have a panic attack the day of ;-)

Can't wait to see your Post Op pictures, your breast look very similar to mine. My surgery is April 30th, and I have all the same concerns as you, its important to me that my husband is still attracted to me as well. Take pics with clothes on, such as fun tanks after too please, excited to see your results :o)

Hi Melw33 I will most def take pics in cute tanks shirts and bathing suits lol I am so excited to go shopping that the moment I can I will be:-) all the tanks and tops I never could buy will be bought lol
I noticed my hubby looks twice. He says I look more normal in regular clothes now. I think it's a little different for him cause the Dr in him understands the healing process. I'm not so shy to show him the scars because of that. I know he loves that I feel better. I still can't wait til they are healed though!

Well ladies I have 5 days left and 2 out of my 3 children have the runny noses and cough ugh I hope I don't get sick I can't hug them or give them kissies right now and I hate it because I know that after my surgery I cant hug them for a few days as well I am the one they want when they are sick :-( I feel like I'm torturing them and my self right now and to top it off I'm exhausted I cannot wait to take that little nap and wake up with smaller boobies and have the fear of getting sick be over with just hope that vitimin C is working hard and I stay well until that time I only have 3 more nights at work then off and time to get ready for my happy day :-) However I am worried I am going to small 36G to a 36C any thoughts?

Aw, bummer about the sick kids. That's never fun, and I can imagine it'd be even worse not being able to love them up. I've worked in a hospital for 7 years and have gotten sick consistently up until I started taking Airborne whenever I'm there. It works. I've been doing this for about a year and have maybe been sick once, but not even bad at that. I've also been taking it when we fly and haven't been plane sick since. Airborne. It's like 8 bucks at the drugstore. Good luck!

I don't think you will be to small. I feel the same as Iowa71. I am bigger and I had lipo! I haven't went and bought an actual bra yet. I am pretty sure I am a D. I am so excited for you and everybody else with surgeries this week and next. Seems like we all been waiting together for so long! I will pray you don't get sick!
  • Reply
I was an H-cup and hoped for a C but ended up a DD. Thrilled with my healing and shape, but still feel I am too big. I'm actually going in tomorrow for some lipo to the breasts to hopefully get down a bit smaller. I think it is a personal decision but I know when I first started thinking about BR I was worried about what would be too small and now that I'm still too big, I wonder what I was worried about! Plus they make some really great padded bras...so if you are a bit too small you can always enhance them, but it isn't that easy when you are a bit too big!
Good luck!

Well I don't understand why but last night i kinda freaked out for a minute and was crying i had looked at some pictures of my self and that set me off I guess because that will never be me again after the 27th I've always felt like I had beautiful breast and now the thought that they may not look pretty or I might dislike them scares me. I pulled out of it fairly quickly reminding my self that I chose comfort and relief over beauty and that when it's over I will feel amazing because I wont be in pain on a daily basis. With all that being said tomorrow I go in and he will draw his map of happiness on me LOL then I go home to my last night of huge heavy breast then return in the morning hoping for the best outcome possible. I will upload pick of the drawings and let you guys know how that went as well.

I tend to get hot and sweaty which really bothers me because it get so hot I feel sick :-( also I haven't been able to use the bathroom (constipation) so I'm not to happy with that but I can say that I am extremely happy with my breast pain is minimal as in almost not even there :-) I am a little itchy which means healing :-) yay my breast look awesome to me and so far I've lost a whopping 8lbs since the day after surgery! I only have one concern when I wake up and breath in it hurts in my chest is this a normal thing? I sleep with the fan on since I've been over heated and I hope I haven't made my self sick.

Hi ladies just wanted to do a small update about what happened to me today. I decided since I felt so great the other day that I would g for a ride to Panera Bread and grab some dinner one I had felt pretty weak today but wanted to get out any way so the drive was not only terrible but made me sick feeling the bumps from the road made my incisions throb and where my tubes once where is now a very painful sore spot. I t was so bad that I was sweating and dry heaving it was horrible so a word of advice to everyone PLEASE LISTEN TO YOUR BODY! I wish I had I was not at all ready for any type of adventure and was already weak feeling so I did this to my self :-( However I learned my lesson I will not be leaving my house again until my post op appointment.

I had my post op appointment and after waiting an hour to see the doc the appointment went very well the doc said everything looked great and he would see me next week took all of 2 minutes lol. I'm feeling much better today than I have been still get pretty tuckered out still but I have been able to walk around the house go up and down the stairs with minimal pain I must say it's a great feeling :-) Now where my drain tubes where still get pretty painful and I have a hard time sleeping so the doc gave me valium? I've never took this before so we'll see how it goes. I'm hoping those spots heal up fairly soon because they cause me the most discomfort other than that I must say things have gone good and I'm very impressed with my results I am so glad I went thru with having my BR :-)

Today my bandaids over where my drain tubes came off and I have sores like pimples but they are raw? idk kinda weird but with the bandaid off they feel much better I would post pics but my steri strips are still n so it doesn't look any different I have another post op on tuesday and I believe my stitches come out then so I will post pics then. All in all thing have been going pretty smoothly. Oh best part of all I have been sleeping in my bed feels great to be out of the recliner :-)

Hi everyone! So today makes the three week mark and I am feeling pretty good awesome compared to haw I was last week. I seem to be healing nicely my shape is coming in and I love it I feel like they look natural and perky the scars for the most part seem to be minimal other than under the breast they are a little rough but hey you cant see those any way so who cares lol. I am however now in the scabby itchy stage and burning stage and it is not fun I can deal with the itching and the scabs coming off but the burning sensation is terrible my bras now feel like sand paper I will put oil on and 30 minutes later back to burning if anyone has any tricks to ease this stage please help.

Hi Iowa and thank you! I actually had to get a 40D because I could not find a 36DD I am hoping they get a tad bit smaller but they don't seem to be budging. I figure even if they stay this size it's way better than what I was told by my doc to be a 36GG so I'm happy with whatever outcome I get at this point. Sure wish I could find the bras in a DD though the band on the 40D's are a touch loose.

Well ladies today I went to the outlets mall and it was a rough start I was truly sick by the time I got there I must have had something that didn't agree well with me so after about an hour of being miserable I finally was feeling well enough to shop I mean I had a blast trying things on things on and by my surprise every top and dress I tried on fit and looked good no more uniboob! Not to mention ladies this shopping spree was on my mom she said anyone who can go thru this surgery deserves a shopping spree :-) So four shirt two amazing dresses and two pair of pants later I am a happy but tuckered out girl. Monday will be four weeks I wish I wasn't still tender but I can do things allot better than before. This has been one of the best decisions I've ever made so happy with everything :-) Will post pics tomorrow when I'm not so tired.

Hi ladies,
Yesterday I went to victoria secrets to return the bra my mom bought me prior to surgery it was a 36D it was still too small so I had them measure me and I came to be a 36DDD which is probably more like a 36DD at most places any how I lucked out and the had one 36DDD in the store that was sent to them by mistake so I tried it on and it fit perfect I bought it of course I cannot wait to wear it I know most people would be complaining about being large still but its much better than being a 36GG so I'm happy plus they look great so no complaints here. So glad i chose to have this surgery I can't stress how much better I feel.

LOL hi ladies with work and family things have been very busy so busy that I said three month on my last update which is incorrect. I am now 2 moths post op and I'm kinda unsure about my healing my breast still look great but I'm having a raw burning sensation on the kin of my breast and my sides under my arms still get very sore and today I noticed a lump marble size by my upper right nipple I hope this is al normal healing or maybe I'm just doing too much. otherwise things are great I feel good have my normal energy I am more than satisfied with my outcome they're not as small as I had hoped for but they fit my body and as I loose weight (which I am now down 15lbs from surgery weight) they will get smaller. hope everyone is healing well.

Three months today and I can say I love my new breast I am so glad that I had the reduction I feel so light up top lol and my back no longer aches. I will be honest and say that I was really sick the last few months and their for haven't been on here much I think it related to being put to sleep during surgery but really I'm not sure. I have a few concerns about my breast I still have a nice amount of pain on the end of my incisions (the anchor) in the photos I am uploading will show a puffy area and a very dark scar that is where my problem are is also my breast will cramp up still I'm hoping this will end soon but for the most part the are just scared normal breast NORMAL... LOL meaning not too large doesn't cause near as much discomfort as before and I can buy bra's at victoria secrets lol 36DDD there but I can buy them and that makes me happy no more $60-$100 bras yay! As far as shape goes I love them when my scaring becomes less visible I will love them even more. My husband use to call them big titties now he says I love your medium titties so as much as I was concerned about how he would react I had no worries at all he loves me just the same. So on an end note for today I am a more happy and comfortable me :-)

So I was just sitting here looking through all my before and after pics and I'm truly amazed at the difference I for one never new one breast was larger than the other until the doctor had asked me if their was so one lol made me really look and sure enough there was a larger one. so the evenness of my breast and how full and perky they are now is amazing I've noticed however I have a bad habit of buying shirts that require no bra which is weird because before you couldn't pay me to go braless outside the home. I guess when you are happy with the way your breast look makes you want to show them off a little or maybe it's just me lol. I am truly tankful for this sight and my experience it has helped me get through a very hard and painful time in reality it helped me make my decision on having my surgery seeing others results and reading their experiences gives you an insight to how it all pans out and how their is so many pros compared to cons I mean the only con for me was the scars and healing time but such a small price to pay for comfort physically and within self. The confidence that you gain afterwards is spectacular almost unbelievable how much of a change it truly makes. Anyhow I'll stop blabbering. I hope everyone is doing good and happy with their choice.

Well it has been 4 months and on friday I went to my regular doc for my yearly. I don't know is you recall but this was the doc that told me I wasn't (that) big. So as she starts to do my breast exam I warn her about my scars she was shocked she had no idea I actually went thru with the surgery she then asked why I hadn't mentioned it b4 when I was in last and I told her well you didnt seem to care much when I wanted it done I didnt think you would want to hear about it now. What I got in return was almost shocking she was happy I had done it and glad I wasn't in much pain. She explained that the last patient she set up for BR was not happy with her results and the level of pain she went thru and had voiced it to the doc every time she was in office so basically she was worried that would happen again. So glad I didn't let her discourage me in the beginning because his has been a huge change in the amount of pain I had prior. Now I do have to say spitting stitches SUCK! 4 months and still get them here and there as well as my scarring under my breast is very tender and tends to have a painful ripping feeling when i move around too much but all in all I'd do it again. I love my new not so heavy breast lol

Hi Mrs. Thomas!

WOW! Your 3 month shots are FABULOUS! (I know you're at 4 mos. now) Stunning shape and perfect size. RE: that sensitive scar? Have you considered silicone tape for it (or them, if it's both horizontals)? A lot of people swear by them for scar reduction etc.

Again, congratulations on a beautiful outcome. the ONLY good thing about spitting stitches is that, believe it or not, it IS a finite number - lol!

Hi there :). Happy to see that you are doing well. hope the stitch thing goes away soon. I'm 4 months too and get the stinging on my incisions here and there. Usually happens after exercising or cleaning. I'll take that over big boobies any day :).

Thank you Sunnylou! I love it so much more now that I've had my surgery :-)

Well today I had my revision surgery for the dog ears lets just say it could have gone better. To start I didnt fully numb up so the knife felt like deep scratches and the stitches oh those things where horrible but let me just say it wasn't my ps fault I don't numb up easy and he used all he could I just happen to be one of those unlucky people when it comes to that. So far I think I will be pleased I cannot tell how the scar looks just yet it's got steri strips. The pain isn't too bad I'm def. uncomfortable but I can manage. I will post pics later.

Your breasts look awesome! I can only hope my results look this great. I'm 8 days post op and still have my steri strips on. Your scars look really good, I'm sure they'll fade to pretty much nothing. You also look great in your clothes, nice figure! Keep us updated! Best of luck!

Hi there! Sorry it wasn't painless for you :(. But you're done and now to the healing part. Are you able to lift your arms without much pain?

Just wanted to do a quick update about my revision. It's been 3 days now and If it wasn't for the stitches stinging every now and then I would't even realize I had it done I'm not in any pain I sleep on my side without discomforts and best of all I can see a huge difference already so even with the discomfort I had during the revision I would def. do it again. What a wonderful relief :-)

Well its been over a month since my revision surgery and I have to say I will never forget the pain of the needles and stitches ( I for some reason didn't numb up like I should have ) BUT with that being said OMG what a relief the pain I had on my right side is gone i was very tender where the dog ears where and it only took about 4 days after revision for me to be 100% out of pain I am in bliss I have no pain. My breast to me look amazing I can buy clothes and bras with no problem now. I just can't say enough how amazing this surgery has been for me. For anyone thinking about revision I just want you to know it's so worth it. I will try and post some updated pic's I know i keep saying I will but we bought a house and have been so busy remodeling and I haven't had much time sorry I'm hoping tomorrow I can post some though :-)

That's great that you are all healed up. Can't wait to see the pics :).

Well it's been 10 months I cannot believe almost a year has gone by and so much has changed since the day of my surgery. Where do I start? Well lets begin with the pain I mean what pain? Since surgery after recovery I have been pain free no neck aches back aches and the only head aches I have is from my husband and kids lol but those head aches are so worth it lol. Life has changed allot I can get comfortable no flip flopping twisting turning or adjusting just pure comfort it's great not to mention clothes fit and look so much better. I however did not get down to the size I wanted and I am okay with that I think I would not have been as happy as I am if I had gone as small as I wanted so ladies even tho you feel like you know what you want your PS may know better mine did for me at least. Back in September I had revision surgery for my dog ears I had it was awful most ladies say it's nothing but I however would not numb and felt every bit of incision and stitching don't get me wrong I had option to stop and set yet another appointment to be put under I chose to take the pain and get the whole ordeal over with now with that being said the scars from revision look so much better than the original scars and not as painful either my right side healed up right away and the left is just now starting to act right I had really dry skin on the scar that was painful and itchy for a while but better now. Any how I need to cut this a little short I'm starting to fade it's 2am sorry ;-) So all in all I'm completely happy with my decision love the shape and look minus the scars. The surgery was def. worth it for me. Some advice I haven't given yet if you are allergic to ANYTHING make sure your PS knows even if it's just being lactose intolerant because you may just be given some pain meds that contain lactose trust me I know I learned from experience and it is not fun not knowing what is making you so sick. I will end this with I have some pics no seriously I'm going to post them right now lol I've been saying for the last idk how many updates I will have pics and then forget so today I have my 10mo pics :-) showing scars and how the scars do fade. Take care ladies!

Dr Izenberg is great! From the moment I met him to leaving the hospital after surgery I have be completely satisfied with how things have gone he has such a great personality he makes sure you as a patient are happy and comfortable with the procedure I don't think I could have asked for a better PS or staff they where all great!
