I have had large breasts since I gave birth to my daughter 8 years ago. After breastfeeding they never returned to their original state. I was spilling out of a 38ddd bra so I may have been a little larger. Back pain.neck pain..hard time fitting clothes and bras. Extremely uncomfortable. I asked m Kaiser physician for a referral. He did and two weeks later I had my consultation with Dr.Garcia. I am now 2 days post op. I was so nervous but glad I went through with it. I have will post more pics as I heal. If you have any questions about my experience. ... I am more than than willing to share.

Before and after

Here i am 4 days later

So...today is Friday. I had my surgery Monday the 21st. Sooooo glad I went through with this. My breasts are so much less swollen than yesterday. U have nipple and allover breast sensation in both girls. I have showered the past two days but have yet to remove the tape. I'm being super gentle because I want to have least visible scarring. I will share my worries I had pre surgery with you just in case there is someone out there as paranoid as me. My fear was the anesthesia. Or that I would be awake and feel the surgery. The morning of surgery ...my boyfriend and daughter took me to Kaiser...I checked in. After about 15 minutes in the waiting room I was called back...weighed..vitals. I put my gown on...and the nurse asked me question. Anesthesia team came by and asked the same questions. Doctor Garcia came in and drew his dotted lines on my chest. I got my IV put in and was informed at that point that I would be receiving a catheter and tube in my throat after anesthesia. This made me nervous. I think the anesthesia doctor realized this as I started tearing up. Lol. He said I'm going to make you feel better. He out a tube on my iv and I felt bricks hit me. I was out of it. They started wheeling me to the room and then I heard someone calling my name. My family were sitting there and I had a lighter chest. That fast. I don't even remember anything. Everything I stressed was irrelevant. So don't worry...just do it if you want the outcome. I was worried that I would have no sensation in my nipples..but I do. They are softer after the swelling has gone down. I got my drains out second day. I will update again next week.

2 Weeks and 4 days Later

Ok, so yesterday I had my sutures taken out. Not bad at all, I thought it would hurt to have them removed. At this point, alot of the swelling is down and I am gaining alot of my energy back. My only real struggles at this point are the fact that my nipples are SUPER sensitive to the touch and I am tired of sleeping on my back. ( I am a stomach sleeper and not being able to sleep on my stomach or at least on my side is driving me crazy! ) My incision points are healing nicely, I definitely think my scarring will be minimal. Still cant lift my arms over my head or lift heavy items but Im definitely feeling better. Looking forward to my next check up in a few weeks. By then I should be back to normal!

Super professional and pleasant.
