I tried to look at the cosmetic section but the posts are sooo old and I really feel stalkerish to PM a couple of folks with questionsLOL


Has anyone here had a breast reduction? What was your healing time? My issue is I'm worried about when I'll feel well enough to return to work. I was planning to take 4 weeks off but a lady I work with told me that was kinda outrageous being that I sit in an office all day. She had hers and was back at work the following week.  That sounds....crazy to me lol.

4 weeks does seem a little long but it depends on your age, overall health and you tolerance for pain. 

I would visit realself.com and look at the reviews and message the ladies on there...

I haven't had it but have had first cousins and aunts that have. I don't think they were down for 4 weeks. More like 2.

I was back at work prolly 2 days after my reduction. I was released the day after my surgery.  Since I worked in an office my Dr tole me to simply have the dudes do the heavy lifting.  I don't think I was to lift anything beyond 4 or 5LBS.  I didn't have any trouble or pain really.

I can't really remember my total healing time but I had those dissolvable(?) stitches.  I didn't have any trouble with drainage.  My tube was pulled about before I left the hospital.  And the feel of that tube coming out was a queer feeling to say the least.  I want to say it was a couple of months before all my stitches came out and my boobs settled.

I went looking at some before and after pictures and some just looked...awful....like they were just deflated instead. Then I saw some that were lifted and looked like they had implants.

I wasnt told any of the requirements and I still kind of ponder about it. I went to a surgeon to see about a reduction and cost. I didnt even consider insurance paying for the procedure because I thought it was cosmetic AND I was considering implants. First thing out the surgeon's mouth was "Do you have insurance? Give Sindy your insurance information and we will submit your case to insurance end of this week. I want you to call this doctor SOON AS YOU LEAVE and get seen THIS WEEK. Tell them I referred you. Here are pictures of my work. You dont need implants. Have a good day." I was like Confused "Ok". All this while standing with my boobs out LOL. The cosmetic director filled me in on the process and said it can take as long as 10 weeks, blah blah blah, yadda yadda yadda, be patient beacuse Im a good candidate

Called that doctor's number he gave me, they told me to get a mammogram, bring the film. He gave me a prescription and sent me on my way. 3 weeks later I get an email saying Im approved.


I found out that the surgeon is contracted through my insurance, and the doctor he referred me to is his FRIEND. The whole cost is 10 thousand dollars which still makes me...ponder. They said nothing about weight or anything
