Date that millionaire long enough and his quirks will be apparent. Everyone has them...absolutely everyone. Most people who have money don't want to be defined by it...just like we didn't want to be judged by our boobs. Don't write him off (or any other guy) until you get to know him better...it takes time to get down to who the core of a person is to truly understand him or her. He may have been trying to make you more comfortable with your decision to have the surgery...or he may not have known WHAT to say and said something stupid that he didn't necessarily mean. Or, maybe he meant exactly what he said and is an idiot. I love that you're being a new kind of feminist. I agree that I think many of us, once liberated, feel the same way. You have a unique opportunity to have some real enlightening conversations with people (guys you are dating in particular). Keep doing your part to educate them (gently if you can). Any time I've gotten into a big breast conversation with a boy/man (which were few times as I was too embarrassed or timid pre-surgery) I was amazed at the preconceived notion that men (and some women) had that I enjoyed having them. On behalf of women who continue to bear big breasts and hate it...keep the conversation going. Because you're right...we are exactly who we are because of where we've been. Just be with the one that makes you laugh and who you make laugh. The one who respects your point of view...even when he might not fully understand it. The one you spend hours and hours talking with and can lose all track of time (on any topic)...that's the key. Then you'll know you're with the right person.

You'll probably see a reduction in swelling still...could be months but from what I've gathered, easily some more reduction up until the 1-2 month mark...ibuprofen helps but in any case, by mid day to end of day you may notice a bit more swelling than early morning. I saw quite a bit of swelling go down between weeks 3 and 6. Watch out for Victoria's Secret....I love their bras...but they do run small (so does places like The Gap...so you may be closer to a true C than you think in other brands. Time and sizing at other department stores will probably help. Hang in there you look great!
Sleeping after reduction?

Also try a neck pillow like you see for air travel. I tossed and turned too and previously could never train myself to sleep on my back...but now I'm a pro at it. I spent 2 weeks in my chair and ottoman and really got a lot of sleep in it (of course I'm only 5ft)...but even once I got back to bed, the neck pillow with small pillows under my arms kept me from needing to roll over...if you get a neck pillow make sure it's filled with the very light weight pellets and not the heavier stuff. Also suggested on this site and really helped (once I was in bed) was a pillow under your knees. Hope that helps...you'll find the right mix for you.
