Welcome!

I second Tawlie's suggestion about reading reviews. Hearing first-hand from patients is a great way to set your expectations. You can also filter the reviews by different criteria, so you can see just reviews from 18-24 year olds for example. Feel free to ask questions and chat to people too; everyone here is super-helpful and can give you lots of advice on what to expect.

Finally, check out Kimmer's "13 things I wish I'd known before my Breast Reduction/Lift surgery" -- she's been through it and her article lists lots of things you might not have considered (like when to buy new bras).

No previous surgery and I am an 18 year old college student.

first off, congrats on a surgery date! secondly, get to reading some reviews...when i first joined i started on the monthly check in boards then clicked on the members name to see if they had written a review. also because none of us are the same , our recovery processes are all different but there seems to be some similarities. you have some time so let me ask you this, have you had surgery before? any children?
