SO I have 42DD breasts and it's hard finding attractive bras. i'm tired of waiting for sales at lane bryant...
also I have lower back issues, it's not due to my breasts but i'm sure they are not helping. My only hesitation is i carry most my weight in my stomach and my saving grace is my breasts stick out further. but i would love to have perky full C cup! so I was thinking of losing weight first (my breasts will barely go down, they will be the absolute LAST to go and the first to grow when i gain weight)

what do you guys think?? also i'm tired of guys randomly saying to me "dang you have some huge breasts" there's more to me than my hooters =(

also, I heard when you get a breast aug they also do a lift with it, is that true??

I smoke a million Swisher blunts and I ain't never coming down
Bitch you ain't no Barbie, I see you work at Arby's.
Number 2, super-sized, hurry up I'm starving!

Yes a lift should be included in the breast aug surgery

Also I had breast aug in 2008 and never noticed my stomach due to my breasts being extremely large!!

After augmentation I had such a hard time dealing with my stomach, so fast forward to 2011 had tummy tuck and in 2012 had lipo to abs, back, flanks and had skin retightened on my breasts

I want a reduction I'm a 36h but I'm very well proportioned. 36 32 49...yeah I'm a big girl lol I am afraid I will look crazy if I go down to a full c/d cup. I wouldn't get s reduction unless I lost weight.

I had a reduction about 10 years ago. Best thing I have ever done. I thin I was a 38DDD at the time, but the doc said it was more like an F. I am a tall, thick girl 5'9 1/2 so I didnt look crazy, but terrible back and shoulder pain, not being able to wear cute bras, and button up shirts is what pushed me to do it. I told the doc I love having big breast so please dont make them to small, I just want to be a little more comfortable. I am now a full D cup so they are perfect. Very full and perky still. Yes they will do a lift at the same time and liposuction to contour the breast. It is a must to lose weight first because if you get smaller afterwards your breast will shrink even more and the opposite of you gain of course.
 
My next thing is a tummy tuck, but I need to lose this extra weight I have gained due to hypothyroidism.

I had a reduction almost a year ago and I would do it all over again! I noticed my stomach a lot more after the surgery but I ended up losing some of it during the recovery phase from not really eating and then just watching what I ate afterwards. 
I used to HATE the comments from men but I still get them :/ I was a 38 J/K and i'm a DD/DDD now (exactly what I wanted to be)!

A lift is not always required with breast augmentation or reduction. My friend is going from an F to a D this month. She will be getting a benelli lift, basically scarless. Each person is different and you would need a consultation to know.

I'm thinking of getting my breast done. I was told by my friend that make sure I got a tummy tuck. Because the belly would be more pronounced afterward. So for me unless I get both there's nothing. See if your surgeon will give a discount since you will already be under that cuts down on the cost.
 
Does anyone know a good surgeon in houston tx?Thumbs Up

My insurance covered my reduction in full. I only had to pay a copay which was 10 bucks at the time.

My insurance covered it..only paid 5 dollars for my breast reduction.I didn't have to lose weight first either(some docs tell you to get to your ideal weight first so you don't have the issues that teenut spoke of)..I didn't want to wait for all of that.It's the best thing I have ever done! before my reduction,i had the worlds biggest t shirt collection because button ups weren't happening!Bras from Victoria's secret? hell naw..Now i'm a perky small-medium D..go for it!

Has any body had kids after a reduction?

I don't have any kids yet and I have had a few dr tell me have kids 1st they may get smaller, but i'm afraid i won't be able to get up and walk if they get bigger during a pregnancy.

I underwent a breast augumentation in 2009, it was a necessity for I was 130lbs and wore a 38F.  At the time, I was 19 and had major back problems because I was bent over, hunched-back, poor posture 99% of the time. My expenses were covered due to the surgery being a necessity and a series of Xrays over a 6motnh period showed my spine becoming mis-aligned.
 
..Going forward, the procedure is a great gesture but however I noticed that none of the ladies spoke on the scarring.  My scars are hideous. Being a women of color, containing tons of melanin, I have hypertrophic scars where the incisions were made and over the years they have not improved.  I'm a lighter complexion black female, so unfortunately the scars are noticeable.  I've tried creams, cocoa-butter, BioOil, mederma and other various products, but they ALL have FAILED...
 
 
..This is just a fair warning to all ladies considering the breast reduction surgery there are consequences, and they are not pretty..

I had a breast reduction/lift in 2005 and that was the best decision I ever made in my life. I keloid and I had a few after surgery they removed them upon request by injecting them with Steroids. I used a lot of mederma and raw shea butter right after the surgery and for a year after and to this day my scars are hardly noticeable. My surgeon was an Asian American woman who was amazing and very caring. Her name is Dr. Roxanne Sclora. She followed up with me for up to a year after. I went from a 36 G to 36 B and they plumped up to a perfect C for awhile but in the years I put on 30 pounds and the pumped back up to a 36 DD which I am still fine with because they suit my body. They are still pretty perky to this day.

@SDOT
Guuurrlll you is bawling!!!
 
....I was hit with a invoice stating $22,000 for scar revisionn therapy. so I instantly declined, I still got student loans lol
 
..But ITS DEFINITELY WORTH IT!!!!  I need them damn steriod injections tho, so the keloid-like raised scars can atleast go down a bit.. 
 
How much did your surgeon charge you for scar therapy?

To all, whom the insurance covered it: how long did the approval process take? I've been wanting to get a reduction for 10 years (of being in pain, arm numbness, etc), but I'm scared my insurance will not cover it. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

I was approved in 3 weeks. I went in to see a surgeon about implants but he told me that I don't need implants so lets see about going through my insurance. He referred me to his friend who is some breast specialist and she did a write up about why I needed the reduction. (They got me to say my back and neck hurts) He's contracted through my insurance so I'm not sure if that's why it got approved so fast.



It was the best decision ever. My boobs look great and fine without implants. I only paid 1400 out of pocket (My remaining deductible)

girls I see the breast reduction surgeries but how have your scars healed..i am a 40d looking for enhancement but when my surgeon says I need a breast lift I told him flatly no because of that middle scar on my breast..he will do an above the muscle hp to lift them but talk to me as on real self I have only seen a few scars that are invisible.was it worth it to you?
[IMG]smileys/smiley16.gif" align="middle[/IMG

note I have breasts that are athletic...meaning they are wide and flatter more muscular and dense.
