Day 2 post BBR/BL...and first look.

Today was the first time I had a proper look at my new boobs.  They're...perky and small.  I'm not used to them.  It'll take me some time to adjust to them.

Regrets? Dunno yet.

Day 1 post bilateral breast reduction/lift

Yesterday I underwent bilateral breast reduction and lift, taking me from anywhere between a DDD to an F cup to now down to a full C or D cup.  It'll take some months to see the full result.  At the moment, I look small.  I've only seen my boobs lying down when the nurses checked how things are looking.  Too scared to look in the mirror.

I was wheeled into theatre at 9.15am and woke in recovery at 2.00pm.  As I'm allergic to Morphine, they gave me OxyCodone....and guess what?  Allergy.  Became itchy so they gave me Phenergan, which made me super drowsy on top of the anaesthetic.  Endone is also a no no for me now, as its in the same group as OxyCodone, so Tramadol is my new drug.

Surgeon came late last night to check up on me and discuss the surgery.  My left breast was bigger than my right.  To me they looked the same, but he knows.  He said approx 500gm of skin and tissue was taken from the left breast and approx 350gm from the right.  I certainly didn't expect that much to be cut away.

Nurse only took three photos during the op and they're not as gory as the tummy tuck ones lol.

I go back Tuesday for my first post op review.  Until then, I shower with the supportive bra 24/7 for a week.

Once I get a proper look at my new boobs, I'll post an update...depends if they look decent though 😕

Pre op markings.

In theatre, ready to get started.

My right breast, much smaller.

Left breast yet to be reduced and lifted.
