Breast reduction surgery can bring happiness to many women’s lives who have felt hampered by their uncomfortably large breasts. Consider a recent article for the Huffington Post titled “I’m Getting Breast Reduction Surgery, And I’ve Never Felt Like More of a Woman.”
Jordan Hernandez of the Huffington Post writes, “I recently received the happiest news of my life. The breast reduction surgery that I have been trying to make happen since I was 16 was approved. In less than 2 weeks, I will be going in for the procedure and coming out someone completely new. I have so many thoughts going through my head at the moment. And yet, I don’t exactly know how to begin to write about it. Of course, I’m thinking things like what if it doesn’t go well? What if I spend a year growing into my new body and I don’t like it? What if every shirt I own has to be tossed out because it fits me like a parachute, only to be replaced by new things that feel foreign to me and my skin? What if I wake up during surgery? (I’ve seen that show and it really freaks me out.) What if someone hugs me too soon after and I feel like curling up in the fetal position because a hug is too painful? What if, what if, what if. I think all of these thoughts are normal, healthy even. A large part of my body will be undergoing a transformation, and I don’t exactly know the best way to plan for it other than educating myself on the side effects and learning to practice great self-care. I think there is such a big misconception about women and breasts in society. As much as I want to break that cycle and throw all the preconceived notions out the window, I simply cannot because I don’t have the ability. Our society has grown far too comfortable with sexualizing women based on how big their breasts are, how shapely their butts are, the fullness of their lips and how well they can walk in high heels and apply their makeup.”
