Upcoming Breast Reduction Surgery - Abbotsford, BC

Hi, I am scheduled for breast reduction surgery on Feb.16/2012,next Thursday.I am 40 yrs old,and decided it was time to get rid of some of my excess breast weight,i am a D40 at the moment.I chose to have it done because I suffer from neck and shoulder pain and indentations from my bra straps,and also they sag quite a bit.My Dr told me it would be covered by B.C. medical...so long story short,here I am waiting,a little nervous but excited at the same time.The Plastic surgeon who's doing it is well rcognized for be an exceptional surgeon,and he is super nice as well.One more thing I did before hand,is to have my first mammogram done,just to make sure there were no surprises on the day of surgery,glad I got it done because they thought they saw something on my left breast but it turned out to be nothing,thank goodness.I have posted a pic of my before,and then I will post an after when the surgery is done,can't wait to have smaller,non-sagging breasts,going down to a C40.Thanks memegirl...Had to put the expected cost at $5000,it wouldn't let me put free in the box,just a geusstiment.

Hello everyone. Planning to get breast reduction - have wanted to do it for years but scared of surgery. I am 38 DD but only 5.2 feet in height, so they are far too big for me. I hate how I look when dressed, have been trying to hide them since they started growing when I was a young teenager. Now at 46 I am finally ready to take the plunge to have them reduced. Could someone please tell where I can find out whether I qualify for free surgery in the British Columbia area ? Moving there soon because of my husband's job so it would be great to know who to see and whether I would have to pay any of the costs myself. I do have a great deal of physical and psychological discomfort and I was told in Quebec that I qualified for free surgery there (removal of at least 250 grams). I need to know about BC please. Thank you ladies !
