Anxiously Waiting for Smaller Boobs! Let the Journey Begin....

Actually, my journey began about 6 months ago, when after 10 years of debating whether I should get a BR, I finally mustered up the courage to ask my family doctor for a referral to a PS.

Questions from VanGal

Doc said he took 370g off the right one and 200g off the left one. My right was about one cup size larger before. He said he would fix that. Now my left is exactly one cup size larger! READ COMMENT

That's great news! I'm very excited for you. I'm 4 weeks post op and recovering well. Happy with my size, although the final size is not yet settled, it looks like it'll be a small C (I was DDD before). There are some asymmetry between... READ COMMENT

Congrats on your surgery. So happy for you, good to hear your recovery is going well. Your boobs were shapely to begin with, I'm sure they'll come out looking fabulous. Don't forget to post some "after" pix :-) READ COMMENT
