The day of my Breast Reduction is coming, and I am nervous. I am also excited to have the body I have always dreamed of, and the confidence that goes with it. My life changed somewhere between 13 and 15; my breasts went from a B cup to a staggering D cup (they didn’t stop there, now I’m at a DD). From this point on, I stopped wearing snug or low-cut shirts, outfits that cinched at my waist, and most of all, swimwear; anything that would draw unwanted attention to my chest.
Confronting My Fears:
My recent decision for a Breast Reduction wasn’t as easy as some would think. For years, my fears were paralyzing. What if I won’t look good with small breasts? What if after the Breast Reduction, my smaller breasts will make my butt look bigger? Will I mourn the loss of ‘a piece of me’? I have always hated my breasts, but I have learned to live with them everyday. Who would I become after this big part of me was removed?
At my consultation appointment with Dr. Vitenas, I mustered up the courage to tell him my worries. I was relieved to find that Dr. Vitenas actually understood my fears and he could give me the support I needed to address them. Using cutting-edge technology, Dr. Vitenas was able to illustrate my results from a Breast Reduction. After some discussion, we settled on a C cup; I was relieved to see this change would be flattering for my other features.
He also acknowledged there may be some ‘blues’ after the surgery. This is common for everything from Breast Augmentation to a Rhinoplasty. He assured me that once the swelling began to subside, and I could appreciate my final Breast Reduction results, my self-esteem would soar. The gift I was giving myself was more life and more freedom; the Breast Reduction was not going to take anything away from me.
My Breast Reduction Surgery:
I’m only a few days away from my surgery now and admittedly, I am still pretty nervous. With the support of my family, and everyone at Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery, I find comfort in knowing that things are going to be even better than OK; my life after a Breast Reduction is going to be wonderful!
