Needed Change?

I am in the midst of a change my doctor has recommended but I’m not sure I should take. I am in my mid 50’s and my doctor says I should have my breasts reduced. I’m sure you are already saying “Oh poor you big breasts!!” Let me tell you how all these years of having big breasts have been a nightmare. I was 13 years old when it was brought to my attention that I had large breasts. Being a child, yes back then 13 you were a child,peers laughed because I wore a childs bathing suit but I was over lapping in all directions. I ran home and looked at myself and said ” Wow, when did that happen? It just progressed. My father would say, Would you please hide them!! Clothes were hard to find. You couldn’t wear pant suits because tops never matched bottoms. Always looked out of proportion. I don’t even want to talk neck aches, back aches…Now I am considering surgery ( which I hate) but to have breasts that are smaller. Its scary but yet its exciting. I talk to a few people and their reaction is I’m having it to enhance my appearance. I don’t know if it will enhance my appearance because I am not guaranteed a particular size or shape but I will definitely be lighter but its scary… Suggestions??

  • pattyde, it sounds like there are medical reasons for having breast reduction surgery (neck aches, back aches). Often, we carry the scars of our childhood into adulthood. If you have any reservations about surgery you should discuss all of your concerns with your doctor. A good idea would be to make a list so you are ready when you meet with him/her. Altering your image is a big change. You should only do this if you are sure you will be comfortable in your own skin what ever that might be.
