So Nervous, 36DD/DDD to C - Sacramento, CA

After having kids I went from a 34C to a 36DD/DDD. They hurt my back, cause indentations in my shoulders and generally make it hard to wear the types of clothes I want to wear. I finally got up the courage to ask for a consult and the process was much easier than I expected. Basically they have to remove 400cc and it is covered. The problem is that 400cc could possibly make me extremely small.... READ MORE

Hey there, I'm not sure if you still get notifications from this board but just wondering if you ever attempted to have your lip fixed again? I have he same thing. I've had it removed 4 times and it always comes back. READ COMMENT

Glad my post was helpful for you. I couldn't find any info on him when I had mine done and would've loved to know a little about him. I'm two years out and so glad I did it. Definitely take it easy and listen to your body. READ COMMENT

Good luck! Dr. Vento was great. Don't be nervous, it was the best decision I ever made. I would error on the small side though if I were to do it again. I'm currently a 38C. I need to lose about 20 pounds to get back to a 36C. READ COMMENT
