I had been contemplating a breast reduction for 10 years. As I approached the end of my 30's, I felt content and confident within myself however I had put up with large breasts since early high school and I had come to a point in my life where I started to intensely dislike my DD-E size chest. I felt it a hinderance to my lifestyle. Being naturally large breasted affected my physical activity and it was a punish finding clothes to fit me properly in the waist and the chest together. I find great enjoyment in clothing and dressing up and have built up a wardrobe over the years only to have many pieces go left unworn as I always found it too tight across the chest to wear. A dress would fit beautifully in the waist but then it would feel like wearing a corset up top and be difficult to breathe. Then there was the neck strain and bra straps leaving marks on my shoulders. Bikinis were even worse! I looked ridiculous trying fit breast tissue into a silly triangle piece of fabric. Bigger bikinis just made me look even bigger still. I was frustrated and hating my appearance.

As another new year clicked over, I thought about myself (for the first time in a long time as mothers & wives know) and after finally having enough of living with this hindrance, I thought, this is going to be it. I'm going to do something for just me. I don't care what family or friends think. This is my own decision. I started reading online and seeking a Dr to consult. It was foreign, intimidating and I felt I was embarking on a world only for the elite, wealthy or supermodel amongst us. As a typical girl-next-door, mother, wife and with a blue collar job, I was intimidated about seeking help. I felt I wasn't the worst case out there and in a world of enhancements I must be mad to want to be smaller breasted but I was on a mission. I had no clue as to the cost but I would find out. I gathered information online then visited my GP who in his professional opinion steered me away from one Dr and onto my other choice which was to be Dr Scott Turner. With referral in hand, off I went to my first date in seeking smaller breasts.

Dr Turner was immediately calming, reassuring and made me feel completely normal and healthy. I wasn't "mad" as I had worried people may think and he settled all my anxieties and insecurities with information, reassurance and above all else, the expectation of excellent results. I was also sweetly surprised to learn the procedure is a medical one and not cosmetic so my health fund and Medicare covered a tremendous portion of the bill, leaving me with only a slight out of pocket expense in the end.

A short time later the procedure was completed and I recall I cried in recovery saying, "They are beautiful! I should have done this 10-years ago!" I went from my very full DD-E to a youthful C and I am extremely happy. My clothes fit me well, my bikini's even better and I can run and wear a dress with no bra! Never in my life could I not wear a bra. Imagine that! An outfit with no bra! The choices of clothes that opened up to me, strapless, thin strap, racer back, the clothes that are usually restricted to one who requires an industrial size supportive bra.

I am no longer self conscious of my chest. My posture has improved and my confidence has soared. I stand with my shoulders back and chest out for the first time in my adult life. If I had my time all over again, I would have done this procedure the moment I gave it consideration.

I am still in early stages, with wounds healing but scars are very fine and minimal. To add to my joy, my nipples were also reduced in size to fit my new size breast and my husband and child still think I look beautiful.

To anyone having slight doubts or insecurities about revealing your breasts to a Dr or anyone else, do not hesitate in consulting Dr Turner. He has personality and communication skills along with superlative surgical skill. A magical combination.

My greatest joy as a result of this procedure is I bought my first thin strap, soft cup t-shirt bra. It has spaghetti straps! No more inch thick boulder straps or industrial sports bras for everyday wear. Just fine, delicate straps to support my new light weight, delicate small breasts.

Dr Turner, Thank You.
