Before I had children (at ages 39 and 40), my breasts were fabulous! They were a perky "C" and they couldn't hold a pencil! Now at 56 years old, they hang like 2-deflated eggplants. Today, June 6, 2016, I had a consult with my preferred surgeon, Dr. Susan Vasco. I was thrilled when she reassured me that women in my situation have the surgery. I'm not imagining that I need a BR, I actually need a BR. I have permanent bra-strap indents in my shoulders, and they measured 32-cm from breast bone to nipple. This process may take time, since I am required to lose at least 15-lbs (to take my BMI from obese to overweight); after which I am to contact the office to begin the process. If I ever had a reason to drop these lbs, now is the time! Current Weight: 195-lbs, Weight Goal for Surgery: 180-lbs

My initial meeting with Dr. Susan Vasco was very pleasant. She was professional, yet warm. She quoted the percentages pertaining to reduction in chances of breast cancer, post operative infections, etc. Non-judgmental re: my current weight (obese), but honest as to the limitations this may cause.
