    Hi all,

    Edit; just realised I started a thread about this a while ago but can’t delete this! I also couldn’t find when I searched before 😛 Any stories welcome though

    I’ve been saying for years that I want a reduction as, even when I was at my lightest weight, my breasts were still massive.

    I’ve been tackling my weight this year so I should be down to a healthy range by the end of this year. The serious saving for the op will commence following my 34th bday so I should be ready for a pre-op appointment in the summer, if not sooner.

    Whilst I don’t currently have a partner, and the likelihood of having a kid is slim, I was wondering if any of you have had a baby within a few years of surgery and what your experiences were. More so I know what to expect, what to plan for if I decide to have a kid etc…

    I chatted with someone in here last year I think about recovery time and such which was helpful in terms of work, so i’ll be sure to factor that in too!

    I haven’t had any children but my surgeon sAid to wear a support bra 24/7 when pregnant. He said breastfeeding would ruin my boobs too though ???? so to be prepared for that if wanting to breastfeed! X

    When I had my reduction, I was told risks included regrowth, which hasn’t happened and obviously them growing during pregnancy. I’ve not been pregnant yet but soon plan to and its a risk I’m willing to take.
    I was told that breastfeeding was unlikely but not impossible, depended how much sensation remained in my nipples which I do have some so who knows!

    In my mind, it was a small risk to take for a better quality of life.
