I've suffered from chronic back pain, migraines, shoulder pain and recently numbness and tingling in my arm and fingers. My breasts were at least a 38 E and pendulous.
Dr. Palladino explained the pros and cons clearly and offered time to consider my decision as I was paying out of pocket. I did not need the time... I signed up immediately.

I was "blessed" with big breasts between the 7th and 8th grade and they reached their current size of 40 DD in 9th grade!

My consult was about a month ago and I had my surgery yesterday. The personnel in the Plastics department were professional and supportive. The group who I saw yesterday as they prepared me for surgery were wonderful, too.
The methods they used to bind and seal the wounds seems to be helping immensely with the pain this morning. I feel like I have a fifty pound vice wrapped around my... more
Pros: Less back, shoulder, and neck pain. Easier time finding bras and to stop being known for my big boobies.
Cons: Have to let you know later.
