Breast Reduction Reviews
For those of you that are seriously interested in Breast Reduction (read our detailed report), you should conduct your research in order to find everything on the procedure, so as to finally decide responsibly if breast reduction is what you want/need! This is why we present a list of testimonials we received in our contact regarding breast reduction!
I had a breast reduction operation which went just fine; now, I am on the recuperation period; swelling and bleeding are very limited and I feel very confident for the outcome. I’ve been told to wear a couple of silicone sheets on my incision points in order to prevent scarring, which have to be changed every two days. I’m sure I won’t have any problem with those jelly-like pieces, even during night.
My breasts were too heavy and unappealing as well. So, I underwent breast reduction, but so far, 10 days post-op, it is really tough to handle! I am in big pain, my breasts are swelled and stiff and there are moments I can’t tolerate it. I have to believe that, in a couple of weeks, I will be praising myself for my decision and my courageous spirit, but right now it’s an uneasy situation to be in – to say the least. My advice for everyone is not to resort to an operation like this unless it’s absolutely necessary, and if you actually do it, make sure you have it performed by a seasoned surgeon after exhaustive consultation!
It’s been two weeks off work already and I really feel that was enough rest. I’m not claiming that this time off work wasn’t necessary; on the contrary, it was mandatory, as my breasts were swollen and felt tender after the operation, but I now am almost ready to get on with my working routine. The big problem of course are those bandages which I still must wear in order to deal with drainage (which nevertheless is not substantial). However, it’s not the only issue I have, since there is also stiffness and itchiness, while I do have some difficulty in sleeping undisturbed, but I’m now too close to the end to get frustrated! The doctor also advised me to be a little more patient and it is likely that I will be back to the office in a few days.
My operation was performed yesterday under general anesthesia. When I woke up, I could feel some pain coming from the incisions and the sutures, but thankfully they gave me a painkiller and it was all sorted out. Unfortunately, I am not in a position to have a glimpse at my breasts, but I can already sense that they have been significantly reduced! I slept again at night and when I woke up today, I again experienced soreness, which I also dealt with a painkiller (as I was advised to do). Tomorrow, I am having my first bandage change, and I am impatient because I want to see how are my breasts shaping up! I am positive that the operation was worth the expenditures!
Ten days after my breast reduction, things are starting to get straightened out. Initially, shortly after the procedure (which lasted around 2 ½ hours), I had high blood pressure and thus the doctors prescribed me codeine as well as antibiotics to tame it. After that, my husband took me home to rest and I slept for many hours before waking up in some pain; no problem though, as the painkillers did their job to keep me ache-free. However, my boobs were feeling sooo puffy and stiff, so the situation was far from being uncomplicated. Anyway, I managed to get through that feeling and be patient, since my doctor had warned me about the bloating and had also assured me that it would soon subside. He hadn’t lied, fortunately! Puffiness was much lesser the next few days and I also eased off on codeine to avoid that nasty sleepy feeling. Now I am feeling much better, and all that bothers me are those bandages and the surgical bra, which is not the most pleasurable sensation a woman can experience. All in all, I am content from my decision to have a breast surgery, even though I had to spend almost $5,000, which were part of many years’ savings! Let’s hope that I will soon be rewarded for attempting to walk into that tricky path!
A breast reduction surgery was something I owed to myself for a long time. I finally had it four days ago (it lasted for 1h 50 min under general anesthesia) and it all seems to be going well apart from some ineluctable side effects. There was, for example, significant soreness the first two days post-op, so I had to take medication which in turn made me drowsy. There was also an infection due to fluid accumulation, but I am getting over it now. Yesterday I stopped taking painkillers (the pain has been diminished), so I feel much more lively today! I’m still resting for the most of the day of course, while I have to wear uncomfortable bandages and supportive cotton bra, which severely compromise my ability to move around freely. But I know I have to be patient and keep wearing those bandages so that my wounds get hydrated and healing becomes faster and more effective; hopefully, I won’t have very visible scars when all this is over! Aah, drainage is also considerably less! All I’m looking forward now is to having a look at my smaller, tighter and more appealing boobs, which is scheduled to happen tomorrow!
After my operation, I had some rest and then my mother drove me home. I was feeling drowsy and you bet I slept for the whole route (over 2 hours!). Arriving at home meant more sleep, so I really didn’t have the time to feel uncomfortable. Two days later, pain has subsided, but some tenderness still exists. I was advised to keep my incisions dry until the sutures are removed in 5-6 days from now. Can’t wait to see the full results!
