Before you ask, no, I am not trolling. This is a serious question. I have 32DD breasts and I find them extremely unattractive for the fact that all they do is make me look fat when I am not. I can't wear a T-shirt without looking huge, and I hate wearing tight clothing. I feel like they bring too much attention to me and that they are too big, in a disgusting way. I am also afraid that they will sag and become even more disgusting with time. I don't know if it is just my low opinion of myself or if I really should go through with it, but I've been thinking about getting a breast reduction for quite some time. My only fear is that I will regret it because I'm only seeing the grass being greener on the other side, and I have never had surgery before, so if there are many cons, I don't want to go through surgery to experience them. So would a breast reduction be a good idea?
If its because you feel they look ugly no. The fact is that has to do with how you view yourself not how things are. As you said the grass is greener and that's precisely what is happening now. If it was because its causing shoulder and back pain then maybe but as it stands now, if its for nothing more then aesthetics then no I think that would be a bad idea. You need to be able to accept who you are and love who you are and hacking out parts of you is not a good way of going about that. It will cause scarring so now your going to think about how ugly the scars are, it can cause nerve damage so now the sensitivity in your breasts will decrease, many guys like larger breasts so that might result in less attention in which case you might not think that's bad now but later on that might change (lets be honest every one likes to be attractive). So their are things like that, then of course complications could occur after all its still a surgery. Plus it will be expensive. So I would suggest not going through with it
I looked into it when I was younger (I'm a solid D) but ended up being too scared as its major surgery. I went to the plastic surgeon and everything.
I've noticed throughout the years though that there are a lot of big breasted women so I don't feel as bad about it now but I always hated the attention and the fact I can't wear cute tops that show bare shoulders (cause I must wear a bra--too big to go without one) and exercise is uncomfortable.
If it'll make you less self conscious I'd say look into it and decide.
My BFF got it done (but she was huge--a G) and has never been happier. In her case I totally agree it was best for her.
Everyone has their own opinion as to what looks good and what doesn't. However, what really matters is what you think. I could tell you what breast size I prefer, but it's totally irrelevant. It's your body, and so all that matters is what you think.
Given that you obviously feel that 32DD is to large, and you seem to have been thinking about it for some time. So if you feel that now is the time, than I say do it. However, if you are truly not sure, I say you should sit down and talk it out with someone you trust.
However, I do have to say this. A 32DD is large enough that I'm surprised you haven't had any issues with back pain. If I were your size, I would probably do it, just to avoid back issues, that I know happen a lot of the time with larger women. I would do it for health reason, not for my looks, but that is just me.
You are unhappy with what you have for good reasons. And your are right, they will sag. I happen to not care if my ladys breasts sag. That's what happens in life. If you wear bras that give very good support, you can slow that part down., but they aren't always as sexy as the ones you probably wear. This is very different from implants to be bigger. It involves a lot of pain, long healing time and includes restrictiones on some things you do. Some women lose their sensitivity in their nipples. My ex-wife wanted one because hers were too heavy and caused bra divits in her shoulders and back problems. She is a 36G. She decided not to do the reduction because it was way more than she thought it was. Talk tou your doctor. He/she can answer all your questions and concerns. Gather all the information on it and then you can make a well informed decision. It sounds like you are a little lady.
Not yet as you don't seem sure and your wavering. Surgery is a big step. I didn't think 32DD are too bad depending on your height and weight. But if you are truly unhappy with them then do what is best for you.
I'm more of a boobs kinda guy, but I love a bit muscular women so i'm weird. FURTHER. If you feel like they are to big and you feel not comfortable with them, just make them smaller. You must say it for yourself, it's your body. Personally I love big breasts, but yeah thats just MO. Go with your gut feeling.
My respose would be to say no, do not have a breast reduction. It is major surgery and the scarring is hideous. One day you may realise that those big breasts are man magnets that give you an edge in the mating dance. :-)
I'm the same size and I TOTALLY understand where you're coming from, but before you spend a ton of money on an expensive surgery I would definitely try other options. Try to lose weight and lower your cup size or figure out an easier method to reducing your breast size. If all else fails - and you just can't embrace what you've got - (which is fine and totally understandable) I would maybe research a breast reduction but it's a serious and expensive step so definitely don't rush into it (especially if you have second thoughts/doubts!!).
Also, I've found that sports bras and breast reduction bras (yes they're a real thing and they're AMAZING, I found some at Kohls that take off 2-3 inches around the bust!) can really help with the pesky "I look fat in everything even when I'm not" dilemma, just a tip from one busty girl to another! :)
I've wanted one since I was in middle school. My breasts are the same size as yours, and I hate how they make me look much bigger than I am; a picture from the boobs up and I look like i weigh 500 pounds. Factor in the making any outfit look instantly 100x more risque and never finding anything that fits properly... More power to you girl, I know the struggles. I'm waiting until after I have babies and finish breast feeding personally.
If you're really that uncomfortable with them, you may get a reduction. Just understand that it's very pricey and that if you do it, there's no going back. But you should still try to appreciate your body and understand that the grass is ALWAYS greener on the other side. Sometimes I wish that I had a different hair color or bigger boobs or longer legs. Just wear a support bra and do whatever you can to appreciate the way your body looks.
I have a similiar problem, 32D, still growing, although I am very slim, I look much thicker built. However, I love my body just the way it is and would never get a reduction, for screw what others think- I like it, my boyfriend likes it, and that is juuust fine.
I've known a few women who have gotten breast reduction simply for health purposes. It starts to affect their backs and can be painful. I think it would do you good over time to get it reduced-esp if your not comfortable with it.
