What should I expect at my consultation?

Hi Everyone, I just scheduled my consultation for next Thursday.  I'm very excited, but nervous a bit as well!  I am only 19, but have always had large breasts that are less than convenient, to say the least - especially being only 5'2".  I feel the most discomfort when trying to exercise -- my shoulders hurt often, and I find that the skin beneath my breasts chafes a lot and sometimes breaks out in a light rash.  This decision has been a long time coming and I am hoping that after the reduction I will feel better about myself and get a huge weight lifted off my shoulders.  I am working hard to lose some weight before I get the surgery and hope to continue losing afterwards.  My question to all of you is what to expect next week at my consultation -- what is the procedure, what questions should I be sure to ask, any other tips and pointers?  I look forward to hearing what you have to say!  I am super-excited to start this journey! - Corinna

Oh, you poor thing. No one should have to experience shoulder pain and a rash when exercising! That must make weight loss hard, too.
