As for how my ladies look...I'm still awestruck every time I see them. They're larger than I had originally hoped for even after all the tissue he removed (three pounds!), but to be honest, they're the perfect size for my frame. Since my surgery, I started swimming daily and I've lost 12 pounds, which makes them look even more awesome. I didn't get to choose my ideal breast shape as my surgery was medical, not aesthetic. Insurance for medically necessary procedures like mine doesn't cover aesthetics. But it didn't matter because Dr. Sigalove is an artist and he chose the perfect tear drop shape to compliment my body type. The more weight I lose, the more gorgeous they seem to get. While I worried at first that they were still too big, as I swim and get more toned, they look better and better. Honestly, I would've been happy if he'd made me nearly flat chested. But Dr. Sigalove made the right call and took just the right amount of tissue to make me perfectly proportional, and in doing so, he took 20 years off my appearance. So no, I didn't get the C-cup chest I was hoping for...instead I had to settle for beautiful and voluptuous. I can live with it. They never looked this gorgeous in my 20's!
I suffered no complications. The pain post-op was minimal, though getting the drains removed TRULY sucked...it was worse than the actual surgery, but thankfully the pain only lasted a few minutes. My recovery was short and uneventful, and I was back to a light workout at the gym three weeks after my procedure, which is also about the same time I started sleeping flat again. Recovery was a breeze!
****** BTW, don't freak out at the cost of my surgery!!! If you're considering surgery and trying to get a price range, ignore the cost of my procedure. Your surgery will likely be a fraction of the cost of mine. I had two medically necessary procedures done back to back. I had a benign (thank goodness) nodule removed from under one of my breasts near the chest wall. My breast reduction was necessary to ease my back and neck pain, but also to make any subsequent nodules much easier to find. The mammogram that ultimately caught my little freeloader took over three hours because my breasts were so gigantic and dense. Anyway, the point is THE COST OF MY SUGERY IS NOT TYPICAL FOR A BREAST REDUCTION. If insurance isn't covering your procedure, call Dr. Sigalove's office for pricing. The average breast reduction does NOT cost $32K.
