2 Months PO and couldn't be happier!

So excited just found out yesterday that my insurance approved my breast reduction surgery! I'm soooo excited/ nervous! A little info about myself: I am 23 and 4'9" DD breasts looking to go to a C. I have been reading some of the other posts on here and it's great that everyone is sharing their experiences! This way I will know what to expect! I call the plastic surgeon on Monday to schedule my surgery. It will be sometime in feb tho I know that for sure! So excited! I'll let y'all know when I get it scheduled!!!

It's Monday!! I'm anxiously waiting for the PS's...

It's Monday!! I'm anxiously waiting for the PS's nurse to call me back so I can schedule my surgery! Ideally I would like to get it done the first week of feb because insurance said I have to have it done by march 26 for them to pay but hubby is a marine and he is leaving for 7 weeks starting march 8!! So I have to be at least a few weeks into recovery by march 8!! So here's hoping they can get me in :) ill update when I hear back from the office :) also I will try to get a pic up soon so y'all can see what I'm working with!!

I'm losing my mind! I left a message Thursday and...

I'm losing my mind! I left a message Thursday and one this morning at 8 am it's now past 4 pm and the nurse hasn't gotten back to me :( I know I should be patient but I'm so anxious!!!! I just wanna know when my surgery is gonna be!!!!!

So the nurse called me a little after 5 today and...

So the nurse called me a little after 5 today and said that the dr doesn't have availability till march so she is supposed to call me back tomorrow to see if they can get me in on one of his off days the beginning of feb... Here's hoping they can figure it out!!

Still waiting to find out my surgery day... In the...

Still waiting to find out my surgery day... In the meantime I'm still not positive on what size I want him to achieve... I'm stuck on either b or c... I would like them to be not too big of course and nice and perky but if you look at my pic I have kinda a wide rib cage so I don't know if b would be too small or not... I know everyone will say go with what I am comfortable with but I would like some suggestions :) or opinions from u guys! Thanks :)

Pretty upset right now. as it stands they have me scheduled for pre op on feb 19th and surgery feb 26th but my hubby leaves march 8th for 7 weeks so I don't think I will be healed enough to watch our 3 kids on my own by march 8th which is why I really wanted my surgery scheduled for the first week of February!!! Ugh sooooo mad right now.

Hey ladies!! Just thought I'd update since I...

Hey ladies!! Just thought I'd update since I haven't posted in a while!! My pre-op appt is this coming Tuesday the 19th and then my surgery is the following Tuesday!! Can anyone who has already had their surgery tell me what all they do at the pre-op?? Thanks!!

Hey ladies!! So I had my pre op today!!! My surger...

Hey ladies!! So I had my pre op today!!! My surger is scheduled for next week the 26th at 9:45 am! I'm getting excited! any last minute prep tips for me?!

So for like the last 2 hours my legs, arms, and...

So for like the last 2 hours my legs, arms, and belly have been super itchy... Is this normal? I am so thrilled with the way my results look so far! In June I'm moving to California and hopefully by the end of July I will have my TT/BBL So I suppose I will start my reviews for those procedures soon :) So far I'm thinking Dr. William Bruno in Beverly Hills... Does anyone have any experience with him??

So this is my 3rd day PO and the pain is nowhere...

So this is my 3rd day PO and the pain is nowhere near what I had anticipated! My husband has been so good at taking care of me :) I am so thankful! My boobs are so perky! I just can't wait to see what they look like when fully healed! Having this procedure has made me so much more anxious to get my surgery in July! I'm getting a full TT and BBL at the end of July! Then my transformation will be complete! I think I'll start a new review for my TT and BBL soon :)

Hey ladies! So Friday I will be 2 months post op...

Hey ladies! So Friday I will be 2 months post op and I am LOVING my new boobs! So perky and nice! Pretty much all pain is gone once in a while I get a tinge of pain which is prob just nerves healing themselves. My scars are barely noticeable! I can't believe how great they look for only 2 months!! I am moving to CA in June so Now I am looking forward to July 24th! That is the day I am getting a BBL and TT in LA with Dr. Hughes!! I started a review on that if you would like to follow my journey :)

Hello, my 17 years old daughter is 4 ft 9 inches with 34 DD, she had scoliosis surgery when she was 9, and now is in need of breast reduction. We have t been to a PS yet, I am confused as to what comes first the insurance approval or the PS appointments. Could someone HPSO with this? Thanks

The process I went through was I first met with my primary care doctor and they gave me a referral to a plastic surgeon then the plastic surgeon sent a referral in for the actually surgery then it took about two months for insurance to approve it.
