I had really nice breasts until I hit menopause. Then,they got HUGE! I'm 5'7", 125 pounds, very small bones and frame. I HATED those melons - so 6 days ago I went from an E to a B!
I am really thrilled with the outcome. I was a little uncomfortable Monday night and Tuesday - and afraid to flap my arms around, or sleep on my side, in case I "pulled" something and caused a hematoma - but I took only extra strength Tylenol. It wasn't painful - just "soreness".
I'm a plastic surgery operating room nurse and have worked in Plastics for 25 years - so I know breast surgery well. I can't believe I finally had the chutzpah to do it!
My surgeon was not the one I worked with for ten years. He was referred by my family physician. I had asked him if he would send his wife there - and his answer was "yes!".
Today, my chest is purple, yellow, green and blue. I'm a stellar bruiser. But that's just me. I put on one of my old bras yesterday and gathered it all up in the front. Wow! Looking forward to having my jackets meet in the middle without gaping. A t shirt in summer without harnessing "the girls" - and still having them preceding me through the door. Hunching my shoulders, carrying big handbags and not having men ogling me as I walked down the street.
