I haven’t had this done and don’t think I need to, but I wanted to say congrats! I’m sure you will physically feel much better, and be happier!

Congrats! I am large busted, and while I don’t see getting a reduction in the foreseeable future, I could see going that route if they became a hassle.

 

For what it’s worth, the suit you are wearing is adorable. Where did you get it?

Good Luck!!!! That is such a huge decision… while you’re recovering hopefully you’ll have lots of WB time to keep us all updated, I am curious how it will turn out!

Congrats!  My mom had this done and she loved it.  In fact, one of our neighbors had a store that the first time they met (which was right after she had it done), my mom whipped off her top to show them off lol.

I am so happy for you!  I had a reduction ten years ago right before I went off to college.  My mom also had a reduction after she had my little sister.  The minute I woke up from surgery was the first time since eighth grade that my back didn’t hurt.  I am happy to answer any questions you might have if you want to PM me or just ask me on the board, but I will go ahead and let you know these things:

1. If you gain weight, the boobs come back.  Of course, not in full force.  I was a EE, and he took me down to a large C, small D.  Now I have gained a ton of weight, and I am a DDD.  Once I lose weight, they will go back down to a small D.

2. You might lose all feeling in your nipples and breasts, your feeling might stay the same, or you may have more feeling.  I have zero feeling.

3.  You may not be able to breast feed if the milk ducts are cut. 

4.  For the first time in your life, you will feel a sense of freedom and have so much physical relief that it is worth the negatives.

5.  Right after surgery, you will look like you have been butchered.  But you will heal fast as long as you follow doctor’s orders.  I have a high pain tolerance.  I went to a party the next day.  They have perfected reductions so much that it doesn’t even seem like a major surgery.  The hardest thing was learning to sleep on my back.

6.  The best thing was what you said–finally being able to buy normal sized clothes because you have normal sized breasts!  (And you have such a cute figure anyway…it sucks having to buy larger clothes when you aren’t large!) 

7.  The scars are barely noticeable. 

8.  After you are finished having babies, you might have to have another reduction.

9.  I was a little in shock after the surgery and remember crying to my mom that my breasts were “so small.”  Of course, a C isn’t small, but it certainly is compared to a EE.  I just had to get used to having normal sized breasts and get acclimated to the fact that I actually had a stomach.   

10.  I like to write, obviously, as this is a novel.  🙂

Congrats! I have a friend who had a reduction, and after the initial pain and emotional shock of a new body, she was SO happy. (PS-You totally don’t look like you need to get lipo. Just sayin’.)

I had a breast reduction done in 2007 (I was 22 at the time) and it was the best decision I ever made! I had the reduction and the lipo done. It is so wonderful to be able to fit in bikinis and cute tops (without looking like a porn star, I totally get what you mean by that!). The recovery isn’t that bad, just take it slow for a few weeks (lifting your arms will be the most painful) so you will need help with that. I only took a week off work and it was fine. I also used Vitamin E cream on my scars and they are almost invisible, just a very faint white. Let me know if you have any questions, I’m happy to help!
