I Had Breast Reduction

    I didn't actually have one yet,

    but I'm getting one on November 5th. I'm excited and nervous. My doctor says she wants to take 500 grams out of each breast. I've literally developed a phobia of the drains though... Is 500 grams a lot? What do you think are the chances I will need drains?

    I had a unilateral breast reduction 14 years ago

    when I was 19. I had one breast that was significantly larger than the other. I was a DD on one side and a G on the other. I started developing early and by the age of 10 it was necessary that I wear a bra and it was not a training bra. I was teased mercilessly in elementary...

    My Boober-doo

    That's what I called it. My Boober-doo. Not very sophisticated, but then again, I was only 14. Thank God I got to change schools afterwards. Life had been misery then *poof* all of a sudden I was a new person in a new and nicer place. What a weird experience.

    Who Knew?

    The day after my breast reduction, after I got out of the shower that I was finally allowed to take, I grabbed a towel and rapped my self in it. I thought my sweet hubby had bought new towels...the real big ones that go all the way around and then some. Then it hit me...The towel...

    I had it done for medical reasons; debilitating

    back pain. I'm happy with the overall result.

    6 Months Post Surgery -- Question For The Group

    Hi everyone, I am six months post breast reduction surgery and still thrilled with my decision. Wish I could have done it years ago. I have a question for the group. I initially had no sensation at all in my nipples. I knew this was a possible after effect of the surgery, so...

    I Want A Reduction, But Don't Know If I Can.

    I am planning on having it, I just don't know when. I doubt my insurance will pay for it as it says right in the booklet cosmetic surgery including breast reduction is excluded (doesn't even say if medically necessary) A few years ago I went to the to see how much it would be and...

    I was 120 pounds, a skinny girl. I was an "I 32" had the new lollipop incision done with liposuction around my sides and near the Armpit area. They removed over a pound and a quarter from each breast. When I awoke, I was relieved from the constant pain that was crushing my...

    Absolutely No Regrets

    I had the surgery 20 years ago in October - and I have never regretted it - never.  I was not able to adequately breast feed my daughters, but they are healthy, well-adjusted children in elementary school, so I don't think they were cheated out of anything. If you are...

    1/2 Qualifies

    My mom and sister both had this too.  I had never really been bothered by my breasts.  Somehow I ended up having the surgery.  I got a female plastic surgeon because I felt too uncomfortable exposing myself to a male surgeon.  A strange thing happened; the...
