Hi! I just recently had a breast reduction (3 days post) and I am more than excited.
Like many women on this site, I began growing breast at a very young age--12 to be exact. By 6th grade, I was a 34 C while all of my friends were A cups or not even developing yet. Like many others, I began to become self conscious and resented the attention men (way too older) gave me.
Getting this procedure was always apart the plan for my life but many people tried to discourage me. They said I was too young and I should wait until after children. One day I woke up, went to work and decided this was my life and no one else so I called a plastic surgeon (April 2011) and got the ball rolling so to speak.
BUILD UP TO SURGERY
The anxiety I felt waiting for my insurance to approve and the actually surgery date to arrive was tough. I am a worry wart and who challenges all my anxiety into researching. As the date (9.7.11) I combed this site and others very similar to get other women's experiences and to figure out what to expect. I looked at so many before and after pictures if there was a FBI for boob watching I would be a the top of the most wanted list!
Finally I figured out how to let it go and wait for my surgery date and IT CAME!
I am 26 yrs old 122 pounds and 5'2 1/2. Here I am 3 days post surgery and I couldn't be happier with my decision. The doctor took 350 grams (I believe in total) I was too drugged up at my follow up to ask for clarification. Initially I was a size DD--which were beginning to barely fit so I imagine I was a DDD.
HOW I FEEL NOW...
I wanted to be a large B or small C but the doctor told me I would probably be a large C. Which.... to be honest is not what I wanted. I communicated to my doctor my desired size but now I find myself obsessing over what size I will actually be. I know my beast will continuously change over the next year and I will not truly know my size until a year from now but can anyone tell me there story or give me advice to ease my anxiety over what size I will turn out to be?
