clinzyrva - I'd like to hear more from women that did it. How much time did you have to take off of training (and what do you train)? I had a consult a few years ago, and my doctor told me 6 months with absolutely NO jiu jitsu. Not even drills. I don't want to take that much time off, but I absolutely want the surgery. I'm waiting for another BJJ injury to knock me off the mats, and I'll just do them both at once, I think. I'm sick of the back issues and sick of my chest always being in the way. It would also be nice to be able to run again.

For those of you who are a little more well-endowed, I can't tell you how much getting the proper bra matters. If you haven't been sized by someone who makes a living selling bras to women with big tatas, go find someone that does it now. I don't mean the 82 year old woman at the mall, either. Go to a specialty shop. Before I found my bra woman, I was wearing bras that were horribly fitted to try and accommodate the girls. A well-fitting bra makes a HUGE difference (no pun intended).


If you do have it done, do exactly as your doctor says. It will make all the difference in the way you look permanently after the healing is finished. I know of a woman who had an augmentation, she didn't follow the rules on exercise, and since then she has had 6 more surgeries to correct the damages she did by weight lifting. Her scars have doubled, and she's still not shaped right.

My mom had a reduction and she's been extremely happy ever since. Her back issues have stopped, her shirts fit better, and she has a "normal" bra size which makes it easier and cheaper to find cute bras now.

On a side note, I've come accross some WONDERFUL sports bras by Victoria's Secret for my size. They hold me in place, and I don't look like I have an unoboob.

I remember shopping at Victoria's Secret, in high school. I don't think they go over a D or DD cup, which isn't going to work for me at all. I have an Enell that I had custom-made (which is great!), and I also have Fantasie and Panache sports bras now. They fit more like an actual bra, but with considerable support.

Thanks for the advice about the exercise...I figured he was just saying that to be super-cautious, and that I'd be able to do drills sooner than that, but maybe he knows what he's talking about.

Make sure you get the lift also. Perky is best irregardless of the size!

I'll bet, slapping in implants is easier than the artistry of many small incisions and stitches done just so.

My friend (22) had it done after she had her daughter, she was a 38DD, she went down to a 36C.  She's glad that she had it done, but she wishes she would have stayed a bit bigger.  She is happy that all of her back and neck pain has resolved though.

Wow, HC, we had no idea you'd had that done.

Are you more self conscious now that before the surgery? If so, was it worth it?

A friend had the surgery during college. When she played H.S. basketball, they nearly beat her silly when she ran the court.

IMO I thought she missed middle ground and went too small, but she did look more in proportion and clothes fit her much better. She did say she had some loss of sensation. Sorry, don't know how it worked out long term.

Smith - 
ArmbarCity - Any of you girls had this done or know someone who has?


A friend of mine had it done. She regretted it every day. Everyone hated her and she lived with a traveling circus in Egypt with terrorist connections. She was recently assassinated by a team of Mossad agents disguised as painters, garbage men, and bell hops.

  LOL That's how I would feel if you lost your thigh mass. :P
