Dr. Caroline Plamondon
Pros: Perkier, smaller, more natural-looking breasts
Cons: None so far
Motivation: To have breasts that fit into garments the way they were supposed to. To have less back and neck pain. To feel sexy, once again. To wear a bathing suit without worrying about big floppy boobs falling out the front or sides.
Outcome: So far, I am happy with the size and location of the breasts and nipples. I am only at day 3 post-op. Healing has a ways to go but I am taking vitamins and supplements to aid in healing.
How has it changed my life? I feel very optimistic about buying new bras, nighties, and bathing suit tops. For years (20 years) , my breasts have been a huge de-motivator in my physical fitness. No matter how hard I exercise, my breasts were still floppy and gross. I never felt sexy when I was naked because they were saggy and practically down to my navel. Knowing that when I exercise, my breasts can match the fitness of the rest of my body...this gives me GREAT motivation to stick to my routine and diet going forward.
What I wish I knew before? That my insurance covered this procedure. I've suffered with back pain and neck pain for years not fully realizing my breasts were the cause...and solution to my problem. If you have insurance, at least check to see if they cover it, and what the requirements are.
