I am 46 years old and a mother of 2 young children. I have had bigger boobs C+ since High School and they just kept getting bigger and bigger over the years. (along with the rest of me, it seems). Like so many others, I see women getting implants and I think.."why??" But I guess I now understand that everyone is entitled to their body image issues. We ladies only have ONE life and if you spend it ashamed.. it's a total waste of many years of that life. So.. decided that since I had 2 c-sections, giant boobs (38G) and due to bad back and lack of exercise.. I was in need of much more than just a breast reduction. why not go ALL-OUT and do the Mommy Makeover. I did my research and between referrals from nurses with reductions by my PS and web info I made the appointment, which was finally... today. He is famous locally for his work on breasts and abdominoplasty and his before/after shots are unbelievable. I have total faith in him and I knew I would love him and book it before I stepped through the door. So, do to a change in schedule I was able to book this surgery for 4 weeks from now. Holy crow! I can't believe it. I have never been so happy in my whole life.
So.. get this.. it's 20K. Yes, I know its alot, but 1) It's the NY/NJ area in a great hospital with someone who is worth every penny, Im told and 2) For 20K I am getting the following: Breast Reduction, Tummy Tuck and Liposuction to hips AND upper arms. I would sell everything I own if I had to to get this done. I have been in such a lousy "funk" for almost a year and hardly left my house. My jeans can't get over my butt... and I am not spending another summer wearing a $200 bathing with 36G underwire cups built in. IM D O N E!!! So... begins my journey. 4 weeks to purchase my sports bras, fill Rx, line up babysitting and help for myself for the first 8 days, and get my nerves in check. I feel like I just wond the lottery. When I think that this fall I can put on my jeans and boots and awesome hoodie... and look hot... I just cry. Pictures to follow : )
