5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction

Can't Believe I Finally Did It! 52 Years Old, 5'3", 130 - Newport Beach, CA

I knew it was now or never. Started going to consultations (went to 5 different doctors) and finally set a date. I was excited and scared which after reading so many "real-self" stories, I knew was normal. It's...

5'7- 135lb- 24 Year Old Athletic Build. 375cc mod+inframmary-submuscular- Newport Beach, CA

Today is the day! Went in at 6:30 to check in- got ready with the pre op nurse. Got tucked into a cozy heated bed. Met my OR nurse and anesthesiologist- Dr Lawton marked me up and wheeled me back.
