I started developing breasts in 5th grade and it never
slowed down. After having two babies I ended up as a 42 G/H. I
decided enough was enough. The back and shoulder pain, the stares I
got, and never being able to find shirts that fit finally got to me.
I had always planned on going back to work full time after my first
child was born, but my plans fell through. My husband works for his
family’s business, and the health insurance was costing us an arm
and a leg, and was rarely being used, so it was dropped.
I ended up going for a consult anyway, just to see what the cost
would be. I chose to have my surgery with Dr. Todd Adam, in Webster,
Texas. My original consult was in July 2007. My husband and I
came up with the money to have the surgery, went on another consult
on February 26, 2008, and booked my surgery for March 13th,
Surgery was scheduled for 7:30 a.m., and was done by 11:00 a.m. The
recovery was not too bad. I had some discomfort and a little nausea.
The doctor used the full anchor method on me, and also used
liposuction in the armpit area. I think if it wasn’t for the
liposuction, my recovery would have been much easier.
I had dark purple bruising, and little bumps on my ribcage. The
bruising from the liposuction was hands down the worst part for me.
I am now six months post op, and I am absolutely thrilled with my
results. I have since lost about 20 lbs, and am now wearing a 38D. I
was very fortunate with not having any major complications with my
I do have raised, red scarring in my cleavage area
unfortunately. However I have had one round of cortisone shots in
the scars and it has helped tremendously. I go back for
another round of shots next week. All in all, I would highly
recommend anyone considering this breast reduction surgery to at
least go on a consult to discuss it with a board certified surgeon.
