I just recently had breast reduction surgery and went from a D to a B cup. I was interested in knowing whether or not binding (using a binder and not ace bandages) would be harmful to my chest. I did not have an ancor cut, but just around the nipple area and then a straight line down each side.
I wouldn't plan on doing so until I am completely healed but I was interested in whether it is a possibility.

In the future, it is really best to find a doctor that you feel comfortable asking questions. It is just not smart to take medical advice from somebody who's not your doctor and who doesn't know anything about your specific situation. While it's great that you have a friend you feel comfortable talking with, you've really got to be wise about who you listen to when you're talking about something that could potentially do damage to your body while it is healing.

Well, you wouldn't even necessarily have to tell your doctor about being transgender. All you would have to say is that you would like to bind your chest, as you are more comfortable that way, and would like to know how the best way to go about that would be.
