I'm 62 years old, 5'0, and 160 pounds. I have a scheduled date for May 10. Is 62 too old for surgery? I've read a lot of the other blogs but most of you are younger. I'm very up beat about having the surgery. I've gone from a 34B to a 40D in 5 years and still growing, even if I drop 10-20 pounds. I have a lot of shoulder and neck pain, with large digits in my shoulder. I was very impressed with my doctor and his staff. They took pictures, did measurements, and discussed his procedure . He will not remove the nipple, he will not put drainage tubes in, he will remove the fat tissue with laser surgery. Is this the normal way? How soon did most people return to work? I'm hoping to go back to work in 2.5 weeks? Is this too soon? I work as an adm assistant. I sit and work on the computer most of the time, but I can get up and walk around. I'm hoping I'll get lots of support from the group. Will be checking back in.
