Welcome to the world of the Vincent D'Onofrio obsessed - and a bit of real life thrown in.

Tit, Tit, Hooray!

Today I went to the hospital breast clinic to enquire about having my boobs reduced. Since many of those waiting were fearful of cancer diagnoses, I was feeling fortunate. By the time I left I was smiling.

There would not be days in hospital, just an overnight stay, and no need for immobility, just a firm sports-style bra.

To get this done under the NHS you must first convince the specialist that it is needed for health reasons (just ask my shoulders, they'll convince anyone!) This doctor was not difficult to convince.

But the system to pay for this has changed. It used to be a Primary Care Trust that had to agree, and they often declined because it is usually seen as a cosmetic procedure. Now GPs hold the funds, and as my GP referred me, I can't imagine I'll be turned down. I hope.

Being as my nipples have, as the doctor said, "gone south" they will have to be repositioned, and there may be some resultant necrosis. (Hell, leave the bastards off altogether for all I care!)

The closest I could find of a likeness to my own boobs online was the "before" picture below, though mine are bigger. I hope the "after" will be even smaller - B cup, maybe?

I wish you luck!!

As you know, I'm not over-endowed in the boob department,but that makes getting a bra difficult too..there isn't much call for 42/44 Bs apparently..you will be welcome in the club though :D

I had the same procedure done. Right down to the free nipple grafts.

It was an out patient procedure that my insurance paid for.

You won't regret it. I had it done years ago and it was awesome. I was in overnight and off work a week. This was in 1993!

I hope you soon get a weight off your chest!

Good Luck to you. Fortunately I was blessed with 38 C. Maybe some women wouldn't call that blessed, but I have never found a reason to complain; I just have belly fat to complain about and keep working on!

Want to add, my friend had breast reduction about 3 years ago, and she is very happy about it.
