Amazing Experience So Far! - Chicago, IL

I am 43 years old and finally decided that this was the right time for me to go ahead with the breast lift I have wanted for years, but had not wanted the trauma or down time. Finally after years of ill-fitting bras and difficulty working out (running, boxing, Pilates) I went in for a consultation and was told my right breast was larger than my left, by more than the usual amount most women have. So I needed to have a slight reduction on the right as well as a lift for both. I was prepared for the worst- pain, scars, blood, downtime; and it was an absolute breeze. I had it done yesterday, I was not out of it, I was totally fine, and venture to say I could have gone to work that day. No pain, no grogginess, I was fine! The procedure went beautifully, the doc was wonderful, as was the staff at the surgical center. Today I thought "I'll feel it today" and I really did not. I felt it more, but not even to the point of uncomfortable. I iced, took my pain meds although I was not in pain, went in for the post op appt and was so pleased with the results already! Just a day later!

Hi, I would love to see pictures as well. I lost so far 40 lb, and hope to lose 10 more, and then I think I will need a lift without implants. I've met doctor Geldner once, very nice gentleman, did botox for me, I was pleased with work, but I think I don't need it as much.
Please post pictures. Thank you.
Everything is wonderful! Healing was no problem at all, and scars are significantly reduced already, no redness left at all. I will post pictures very soon. 3 weeks after the surgery back to running and boxing, and Pilates I could do after only a few days. I can even go without a bra! Not since 3rd grade have I been able to say that! Let me know what questions you have about anything at all, ok?
