I'm a few days behind on this so apologies for that! I had a good follow-up visit with my surgeon on Wednesday. Here's the numbers, they removed 750 grams from my left breast and 210 grams from the right (approx 2lbs combined). I always knew my left was larger but certainly didn't think it was 3x!
Right now they're still swollen that's why the shape looks off in the photo. The soreness from the stitches is irritating. The incisions have to scab and it's itchy as heck. I am wearing a bra now (cheap one from Walmart that's 38DD. I'm a 34 but have to place a gauze pad across my breasts while they're healing, needed the extra space in the band.
Signing off: thank you everyone for your comments, stories, and suggestions. Special shout outs to all the women that shared their own reduction stories. Anyone I've invited to pm for questions regarding the reduction, offer still stands. Ive tried to answer as many questions as possible but apologize for the ones that likely trickled through. Thanks again!
