Am tired of waiting insurance they taking there sweet time to get back to me. Its depressing. Anxious, nervous . Any phone call come in I fell like it's the ps office calling to give me bad news. I got phone call yesterday from ps office to tell me the insurance they got the original photo instead of fax black and white picture the ps mail the pictures on Friday evening last week Pls pls help help am frustrated what is that means when they request the original photo. So the black and white from send them from fax it was good enough.

**surgery
You will never regret your decision to have this procedure. It is the best thing I have ever done for myself. Please don't be like me and carry those large breasts around for 62 years.

okk pre op

Okay so yesterday was my pre op . I guess it went well I was able to see the surgeon he didn't tell me exactly what size I will be. But he say he will make me look good. I guess I have to trust him. Then I kept asking myself while I was in the room alone. I had to remind myself that i was there for breast reduction. It's like a dream it all really like its finally happening I just can't except that my big boobs will be all gone. I just had them for so long that now am sort of sad. But hopefully I will be happy at the end. AM SCARE TO HAVE SMALL BOOBS TOO ... YES I SAID THAT !!!!!

What will life with smaller tits be like? For me the fascination never ends. I was a 32G uk size before surgery, and now I am approximately a 34D/32DD. I never had any doubt what so ever that I wanted the surgery done, but of course I wondered what they would look like. In my opinion I they turned out very well, and I'm very happy with them. Whereas before I would look dumpy because of the large boobs I now look almost petite. The boobs are very well proportioned to my body, and clothes fit! I look good in a button up shirt! And I can wear turtlenecks without the dreaded boob shelf. I can sleep on my tummy without waking up to reorganize the boobs because they get pinched, I have no boob sweat or rashes, no more sore nipples, and I don't have to wear a bra :D Now that is just fab. As for my better half he loves the new girls, and they have made boudoir related activity much more fun. I am no longer self concious about my body, and all in all, I am so grateful I did this. It was the best gift I could ever have given myself.

Honey, you will be so happy when you come to the small side. They took out 2100 grams from me and I can't believe how wonderful it is. We are/were close to the same size. Be brave, stay strong, and put your faith in your team. They will take good care of you!

I have a decision to make. I have struggled with extra large breasts since I was a teen. My ins. told me I had to lose weight before they would do the surgery. Now that I have lost 130 lbs., they have changed their tune. Before I lost weight I weighed 294 my bra size was a 42 I, Now it is a 36 DDD. The Ins now says in order to qualify, the surgeons have to remove 1 pound of breast tissue from each breast. That would put me at a B cup. The Plastic Surgeon says that is too small. I have herniated discs in my neck and my back, I don't want to have to have spine surgery.

Dr. Rao did a medial thigh lift for me four week ago. He is amazing. He looks so young, but don't let that fool you, his skill as a surgeon is amazing. His skill is matched only his compassion. My type of surgery can be quite challenging during the healing process, but I had no problems!

Hey I love it I just talk to your cuzzin that work at croom and I ask her to give me the info about your doctor and I'm hoping that he will do it bc it's hard for me to find bras and I'm only 18 I'm a 36ddd or a 38 ddd and I only have one bra it's hard
