    How are you feeling now? I loved your insight videos and writing about this. I feel like there is not enough recent real time info about doing this surgery. I’m a 44 year old, now have 34G post baby (almost two years ago) and seriously considering doing the surgery within the next six months, but concerns about not being able to lift anything have delayed me a bit. I so appreciate you sharing your real time experience!

    Hi Chelsea, just wanted to thank you for sharing your journey. My breast reduction surgery is scheduled for Sept 28. I just turned 42 and a week before my birthday I flipped my truck in a horrible crash that I miraculously walked away from with only injuries from the airbag deploying. This gave me a new outlook on life and encouraged me to take the leap to live my best life. I am 32DDD, 5’10”, and I live on Maui, which means I spend equal amounts of time wearing bikinis as I do bras. As a result my c7 vertebrae is permanently popped out, my lomi massage therapist keeps telling me to not do shoulder stands in yoga, and what I thought was pins-and-needles sensation in my hands from carpal tunnel is exacerbated by my bra straps. I remember sobbing in the fitting room when I was 13 years old, trying on swimsuits and nothing would fit me. I was 34dd in ninth grade and the unwanted attention was horrible. I love vintage clothes and trying to find something that would fit my boobs is extremely hard. So while I’m on break from my job as a bartender, I thought I’d go ahead with my dream of getting a breast reduction, because why suffer any longer? I am currently prepping a recovery area in my living room and your advise is helpful. I can’t wait to have this nightmare and struggle be over. I’m gonna be 34c, which I’ve always thought would be the perfect proportionate size for me. Best wishes on your journey!

    Hi I love watching your story I’m only 1 week and a half post breast reduction and I’m so depressed my breast are extremely flat… I asked to go from 38DDD to a C cup and I look like a flat chested woman no bigger than a B.

    Loved your videos-thanks for sharing your journey! I’m 34 and I am 2 weeks post surgery and I know it was the right decision. I should have done this years ago! I cannot wait to get these itchy stitches out. Everything you said was pretty spot on, the only difference for me was I did not have any drains and so far I’ve been very lucky to be healing quickly. Still going to take it easy and let my body heal before I get back into things. Wishing you well and very happy for you!
