Had breast reduction…

Had breast reduction consultation today. They think I'm a good candidate -- we'll see what insurance says. Interestingly, I don't get a lot of say in how much they reduce, due to a bunch of medical factors. They say most women drop two cup sizes, so I'd probably end up a large-ish C. They can try to trim it a bit more if I want, but not much. Hmm...

    Not sure I can remember them all. One element is the blood supply to the nipple comes from the top, so that’s sort of a fixed distance. They try hard to avoid messing with the nipple at all, which I approve of. So mostly the incision is below, and they kind of scoop out under and the sides. You could take out more tissue than they prefer, but it would make for a very odd-looking breast, with nipples down at the bottom.
