I'm just starting this journey. And until recently I never thought I'd want it. But after months of chronic pain after a car wreck, all my efforts to diet and exercise began to become impassible. Sure, some pain is alleviated with the correct exercises and stretching. But I know I'll never be the same again.
After doing some research I am hoping this journey will lead to a life with... more
Last week I just got the call from the doctors office that my insurance is paying for my surgery. The only thing that is bothering me is I have to wait 85 more days. I have lost 72 pounds so far and have a little bit more to go. He don't want to do the surgery until I get to my goal weight. I have also quit smoking so that will give my blood time to heal from all them years of smoking. more
I had my consultation with Dr. Perez on Oct 8, 2013. When I walked into his office I didn't know what to expect?" However, the office was very updated and very clean.

And last but not least......Ms. Diana! WOW! I love her!! Shes... more
I'm scheduled for a breast reduction and abdominal lipo, and even though I'm terrified, I'm really excited! I had no boobs until I got to high school, and then I quickly grew to a D cup.

I am so happy to have found this forum. My situation is much like other ladies on this site. I am 51 years old, 5'5" and weigh 132 lbs. My breast size is 36 DD and spilling out of the side and top of bra as I have never had a proper measurement done. I have been thinking about BR for many years. I went for 3 consultations and choose the last surgeon I went to. I was denied by insurance for... more
Has anyone had this dilemma? I had the consultation with my surgeon during which she told me I needed to lose about 25 lbs before surgery. She took pictures and submitted them to my insurance company, and I was approved. I have lost about 12 lbs, and now the surgeon's office is telling me if I lose too much weight in my breasts, she can't do the reduction. Can anyone say "Catch... more
I like many of you have had a large chest since hitting puberty. I have always wanted smaller breasts but knew that if I ever had children I would want to breastfeed. So, my little one is weaned and now it is time for me to relieve my back and shoulders with a reduction.
My surgery is on January 26th at 11am. With the date being less than a week away my emotions have run the gambit but I... more
