@discodance:  They remove skin from the bottom of the breast when reducing so that should help with the sagging (my mom had it done when I was a teen).

OP, I’m so glad to know that you are doing well in recovery!

I have thought so often about getting breast reduction, but I will wait until after I have kids… wouldn’t want to undo it!

@futuremrste:  Glad you are feeling well ! I don’t remember much after the surgery, except the shaking. DH says I begged him to bring me chicken mcnuggets, lol. It’s all kind of a haze. The worst part for me was the drains. I had them for almost a week and they were awful, I always felt like they were going ot fall out. My sister had a BR this past December and she got them out the next day, lucky her! Hope you get them out quickly, too.

It’s been almost 3 years since I had it done, and I still can’t get over how small and perky they are! 🙂 The scars have faded almost entirely, too. Best decision of my life!

i have 3 friends that had to get reductions 3 times because their boobs grew back after every time.   now they all have big boobs again, opting not to have surgery done again.  Weird. 


I’m glad all worked out for you

Really glad it all went well for you! I had mine done when I was 17, and it was the best thing I have EVER done. 

Just don’t pick off the scabs like I did! (Darn it if I can’t bloody resist a good scab though…)

@futuremrste:  That’s great advice, thank you! I’ve never considered the possibility before. Take it easy, I hope your recovery goes smoothly!

I had a breast reduction/lift about 2 1/2 years ago.  Best decision ever – wish I had done it years before.  I went from a 32DDD to a 32D-DD (depending on the bra).  Kinda wish I had gone smaller.   I was really, really worried coming out from anesthesia but my anesthesiologist was the BEST ever.  No problems at all.  I was off work for about a week.  Scares are still there but are fading over time.  They will never be completely invisible but the trade-off is totally worth so I can work out now without any back problems.
