I got my BA for my 50th birthday and that was 10 years ago. Wish I had done it sooner, but better late than never! Hope I'm not too 'old' for this group!

Cbarr, you look wonderful in your profile picture! I bet you feel as good as you look! Even though your 10 years post-op with your BA, we would still love to hear your story in a review. Hoping you get some great results from your recent cool sculpting procedure!

I am 57 and just had BP and circumareolar lift 3 days ago. I'm 5'9" 140, and got mentor high profile gels 500cc for both. Pain was worse the day after surgery, but completely controlled by pain meds. I'm feeling better everday. Making sure to keep diet low sodium (reduce swelling) and taking vitamins and eating plenty of protein. I know this will be a process. I am happy I finally did it! It will be such a self-confidence booster! :)

Hello, Newbieboobie01... I'm 50 and it has just now a month for me. How has your journey been. Is there anything you would have done different?

@Newbieboobie01, I sent you a PM on how to write a review about your BA, in hopes that you'd be willing to share your story with us!

Can anyone tell me how to update my review? Anyone here from Colorado? I'm in beginning stages. First consult is this Tuesday. Drive is 11/2 hours one way. We don't have that many choices without going to Denver which is over 3 hours away. I would love to stay a bit closer for post op appointments. I would like a mommy makeover if possible. If I can only have one though I have to decide which comes first the BA or TT. Boobs would be so nice, but flat tummy too......

Hi Cbarr!! I'm on the Western Slope. I don't see many from Colo...I had cool sculpt done on my tummy in 2 places....Now that I have decided to have a tummy tuck it was money wasted, but at the time I signed up for it I hadn't even thought that I would be brave enough to go through this!! I had strange little shooting pains similar to a foot falling asleep in my belly for about 3 weeks. It wasn't all of the time and I sometimes took an ibuprophin for it. How are you doing?

I live just north of Denver. I had Cool Sculpt one week ago today and this is the first day without shooting pains. I get the other side done on Saturday & I'm not looking forward to it! I had my 'love handles' and saddlebags done and I sure hope it works! I would have my BA done again without question!!

Hey clippinchick, congratulations! I'm 51 and had mine done last May. Can you tell us a little about yourself and which implants you got? It's the best thing I have ever done for myself.

I am a barber, i am the only one that works in the shop. My husbandworks in North Dakota. We have one daughter thats 27 and was married last April. I was one of those people that use to say I wouldn't have a boob job. I did not want to be looked at because of them. But, for a few years now I have looked at myself and just wished I could fill up what I had. I was always active but started working out for the first time in my life. I figured out I could have what I wanted. So I did it and look at them every day. If someone has noticed they have not said anything. I had the silicone 300cc under muscle PS said my numbers were good did not need lift. My mother had gel implants back in the late 80s or 90s and later had them removed they were the old kind and had saline replaced.

The April/May group actually did talk about doing a 1 year reunion in Vegas. I don't know if it was ever serious. I have met so many women from May to October surgeries, I think it would be great to have a 2014 BA's reunion somewhere. I don't know about Vegas though. I think I would want to go somewhere we could get pampered all day, facials, pedi's and mani's, massage's from a really sexy masseuse. Martini's by the pool.
