Breast reduction 'best thing ever', says college student

A college student who turned to cosmetic surgery to reduce the size of her 34DDD breasts has said the decision was the best she has ever made. Jamie Ruddocks was teased at school because of the size of her chest but also began to suffer physically.“It's heavy and, after a while, it starts to hurt," she told ABC News. "It starts to cause some wear and tear, not only on your back but your shoulders and your neck." The 20-year-old from California sought the help of Orange County plastic surgeon Dr Tenley Lawton, who removed more than half a kilogram of fat from each of Jamie's breasts in order to take her down to a D cup. According to the student, the breast reduction surgery has left her free of pain and increased her confidence. "I just feel more confident," she said.  "I just feel like I can step into a room and let myself go.  I feel like all the things that were making me self-conscious are gone. It's the best thing I've done in my life." Kaelyn O'Rourke, a 24-year-old nursing student, went to Dr Lawton to have her breast size increased from a 34B to a C cup. Like Jamie, she said the operation has left her feeling better about herself.
