Since the age of 11 I have been aware of my early developing and over developing breasts… and there has rarely been a time, especially in social settings, that I have not been aware of what I thought of as my front end loader attributes!!
Although I have always participated in sport or fitness, my large breasts were always a limiting factor. While not always so obvious to others the sheer extra weight affected my posture and fatigue levels. I was a cup size GG…not so bad you may think…but on a size 8 frame to support the one kg each of weight if was debilitating. Finally, I made the call to have a reduction.
Woah what an amazing difference… I now live a life in blissful unawareness of my breasts every time I go out or do any fitness activities. I have taken up running (in my 60s) and how cool is this experience… to be running 8 to 15ks when I could hardly run 100 metres pre -op.
I was able to share the significance of the change in a surprising way …with my adult son who was preparing for his first marathon. He had anticipated carrying 500ml water bottles on his chest, one each side in a front pack arrangement. Having tried it he described the effect as dragging him down and really tiring so he changed to a back pack arrangement. He received flash of light insight when I said that was exactly the difference for me when I had the operation… 1kg/500 mls each side of dragging down had been removed!!
I recommend this life changing experience to anyone !!!
