So after a long time thinking bout it, I finally just did it. I feel so much better for it! It was a big weird at first and I kind of worried I had done the wrong thing, but now it’s great! I can fit clothes and bra’s don’t cost as much.
I would recommend it to anyone who is thinking about it! 4 months ago
I went from a size 34DD to 34B. I’m so excited and happy to have done this. Last night I sat on a stool with no back support for over 30 minutes. Normally this would’ve killed my back. I had absolutely no back pain. No shoulder pain. I look skinnier. I feel good about myself. I feel confident and for the first time ever I feel comfortable with my body. The best decision I have ever made. My insurance covered most of the cost and the recovery pain is much much less than I expected. An added bonus I get a whole month off of work. I’m happier than I’ve ever been. I can’t wait to be all healed up so I can go shopping for cute clothes and bras. 14 months ago
I asked a doctor today about getting a health fund to cover the cost of the operation and whether it would be worthwhile taking out private medical care, or trying to fund it through the government. She wasn’t really answering the question, so I know nothing more. I did mention to her that I plan to lose weight first, so she started rambling on about diet advice, which wasn’t what I wanted. She wants me to lose 8-10kg in the next 2-3 months, then go back and see her. I didn’t particuarly like her, I think I’ll find someone else. 16 months ago
I buy bras from specialist stores in the UK, because there is not a single store in my city that sells my size. I buy clothes 2 sizes bigger than the rest of me, making me look huge, because nothing fits accross my chest. I taught myself to sew so I can feel pretty in clothing from time to time, but no matter what I do to get by from day to day, nothing changes the back ache, neck ache, shoulder aches and raw cus and marks around my rib cage from wires and elastics cutting and shaffing against my skin day in day out. I am 100% mentally and emotionally prepared to reduce my cups by 6 or 7 sizes: to be normal, to buy lingerie in regular shops without massive granny straps and 4 hook fastenings. To feel sexy for once. I just need to lose the weight first. 16 months ago
How I did it: Finally got my breast reduction yesterday and even though its only been one day, i'm pumped as hell. i know recovery doesn't feel awesome and they rnt gonna look good for a very long time bt i am happy its over and done with. by this summer i'm gonna love being able to wear all the things i couldnt before. I DID run into a potential problem though! i met my goal of weighing 135 pounds by the day of the surgery which i was very pleased with but since i was 150 pounds when my insurance approved it, they thought they might have to leave me with much smaller breasts than i anticipated to prevent my insurace company from screwing me over....in the end, though, i went with the c cup i wanted regardless of consequences. I'm very thankful i have very supportive (and thankfully financially stable) parents. Read how I did it… 17 months ago
So as the title suggests, my bra size is 8H, which is HUGE!!! It kills my self-esteem as I can never find clothes that fit nicely and it hurts my back etc due to the weight. Not to mention bras that size are expensive.
I have seen a plastic surgeon, but it will cost about $16,000 NZ to get them reduced, waiting on medical insurance to see if and what they will cover…
I would love to have smaller boobs so I can find some clothes and actually get on with life 17 months ago
I don’t HATE my boobs, but they are too large for my frame, and I ALWAYS wear a bra. I’d love to be able to walk around the house in just a t-shirt without feeling like I’m flopping them about all over the place, or to be able to go to the gym/beach without feeling self-conscious. Plus, bras in my size are so bloody expensive, I’m sure that the cost of the surgery would be offset by how much I have to pay for bras over the course of my life… 18 months ago
