Breast Reduction Surgery | One Year On and why it changed my life.

It’s been a year since I had breast reduction surgery and when I decided to have this operation I thought it was going to be life-changing, but it wasn’t.

It turns out that if I wanted to change my life, undo self-sabotaging behaviours and really address my issues with my own body image, it wasn’t something I could outsource - this needed to be an inside job. So, that’s what the last 12 months have been about confronting and addressing demons, being honest with myself and making changes for my long-term mental, emotional and physical health.

I’m made this video/audio because I receive messages daily about my breast reduction surgery, but in recent months I’ve been also been receiving messages about my weight loss, in the main along the lines of ‘how have you done it?’ and it feels impossible to talk about one without mentioning the other.

If you do have questions about breast reduction surgery or anything else discussed in this video please do feel free to comment or please know that my DMs are open.

Trigger warning: I am aware that some of what I have mentioned in this video may be triggering for some viewers. It is never my intention to create content that will upset, offend or alienate, but this is the only way I knew how to articulate my own personal journey and I hope you don’t mind me using my platform to do so.
