    Many, many thanks for your blog. Your info/photos/thoughts are all a great comfort to me – I’m having a breast reduction in 2 days time. Your size is similar to mine, so it is very helpful in seeing where I hopefully will be in a few months time. They look AMAZING!! Congrats~

    Your blog and pictures are great and very helpful! I am 19 and just had breast reduction surgery three weeks ago. I went from a 38H to a 38C and although I get dizzy when I look at my breasts in the mirror now, I know that soon I will be able to actually look at them!

    I am 19 years old and have been thinking about having the surgery done. I am a 32J. I have a little tummy and waist but have huge boobs. My mother is ashamed of them. I am in college so she can’t dictate what I wear anymore, but while I was in high school, she would never let me wear anything form fitting or flirtatious. I consider my style modest, but i wanted to wear shirts that fitted my waist and hips. Anyway, I have gotten a a lot of attention from them and a lot of it was not unwanted. I like them a lot. However, shopping for bras and clothes is very very frustrating. I am in tears when I cannot find a single dress for church. But my mother has been pushing me to get this surgery done. I don’t want to do it because she told me to. I want it to be my choice. But like I said before I do like my boobs. It’s kind of nice to naturally have the body people get surgery to have. They do not define me, but I do have confidence in my body. But It does cause a lot back pain and frustration when I’m shopping.
    Does anyone have any advice?

    You have to decide what to do, not your mother. It sounds like your really are a great girl. Don’t let anyone push you about (even your mom) Yes boobs are a nuisance and I’m waiting for surgery to reduce mine but your really must be proud of who you are. If you think the boobs are not such a pain then hang onto them girl. Enjoy being 19. Be proud of your body and more importantly be proud of yourself

    Forgot to say. Have confidence in yourself.

    Hi there, I’m day 4 post op and I feel like they are getting bigger. Yours seem to have gotten smaller in size throughout the recovery process. What cup size did you end up being?

    • Cat says:

      I think that’s due to the Arnica I was taking. I had NO swelling. I ended up a small C, now more like a large C, as menopause has put a little weight on me.

    I am 3 weeks post-op for breast reduction surgery going from a 38DD to 36C. It’s been a slow recovery with the added procedure of “contouring” (i.e. liposuction) on the sides of my breasts, under my armpits. I cannot lift my arms straight out to the side and above my head and wonder if this is normal and if so, how long before I get full range of motion back.

    • Hi Anne,
      Congratulations on your new girls!
      I found that it took several weeks before I had normal movement.
      Arnica will help immensely with this, helping with swelling and bruising 🙂
      Hang in there – its a few years for me and it’s still the best thing I ever did!

      • Anne says:

        Thank you! It’s only been 3 weeks so I need to be more patient. Oddly enough, my doctor doesn’t recommend Arnica. He told me studies have been inconclusive and he’s read some studies where it has actually been harmful.
