I had a breast lift with augmentation at the age of 43. I am pleased with the results. The worst part of it is the first 24-48 hrs after surgery. Getting the sutures out is uncomfortable but not bad. I had stopped taking the pain meds after about 5 days. And have resumed riding after 2 wks per my doctor's approval.
Would I do it again? - yeah - I would. For years I was dissatisfied with the size of my breasts and the fact that they had sagged even though there was not much there to start with. I was fortunate enough to be able to only have a scar around my aerole and with time it will not be noticable.
Take the time to research your surgeon - wear a water filled bra for a month even to bed to get used to the extra weight and how your back will feel. After all the water bra can be taken off - the implants are a little harder to get rid of if you determine that they are not to your liking.
BE informed and educated - ask questions - this is your body after all.
