I wish I hadn't waited till I was 53 to do this! I went from a 40J to a 36C with virtually no pain, no drains, and no loss of feeling whatsoever! I took a few percocets for three or four days after this four hour out patient surgery, but I was back at work delivering mail two weeks later.
I was out shopping five days afterward, going braless! What a dream come true! My insurance paid for it because I had back problems and asthma, so all I had was a copay.
The incisions have faded, and are beneath the breast anyway, so aren't visible. My husband is thrilled, too, and he loved my big boobs! Ladies, do it! I can wear so many clothes now that I couldn't before, and I no longer hang to my waist!
