RIP to the Twins – Breast Reduction Surgery

Today, I’d like to take a moment to honor the memory of the twins!! 💜💜 For Years I carried the heavy weight. I fluctuated between 155-160 lbs. There was a battle to stay under 159 lbs for the Air Force weight requirements. 😒😒😒 I lost 10 lbs immediately following surgery. Running, push-ups, and crunches was a problem. I’d have to do the Patti Labelle trick and wrap up with an ace bandage and sports bra to keep my tatas in place. What prompted me to get the reduction was chronic back and neck pains.

The Korean Doctors simply diagnosed me with “Humongous Breasts.” True story. 🤣🤣🤣 They couldn’t measure my size with the tools on hand so they used a plastic bag to get the measurements.

I had my breast reduction surgery in Suwon, Korea at Ajou Hospital. I was in recovery for almost a month. The doctors and nurses spoke very little English so my Korean Linguist military friends would come and sit with me to translate. I remember SrA Zac Giroux (rest in peace) and his wife would visit almost daily and bring me books. It was helpful having translators it made my nurses smile and they took good care of me.

My recovery went well. My American Doctors were impressed by the work. I used this scar cream called Kelo-cote and Scar Guard repair liquid. My scars magically disappeared. I was so happy with the final results although I did mourn a little post-surgery. I was reduced initially from a 34I to a 34C. Overtime I’ve grown to a larger cup size. 😉😉😉

I’d highly suggest breast reduction surgery to those who suffer from chronic back pain or physical restrictions. If you are in the military the surgery can be authorized with a doctor’s referral. I was pleased with the care I received at Ajou hospital. It was an adjustment and essentially the breast reduction improved my overall quality of life.
