Having this type of operation at such a young age...

Having this type of operation at such a young age was very scary for me but I knew how much it was going to change my way of life for the better. It has made me so much more confident even on a day to day basis. I don't have to worry anymore about the clothes I want to wear and I can wear the latest fashion, for example backless dresses or low cut tops because I don't have to rely on a bulky, horrid bra getting in the way. As I'm a dancer, costumes were such an effort and I'd have to have different ones made because I couldn't fit in the same as my colleagues and it was so embarrassing! Being a very fit and active young lady I struggled with back pain and I would always have massive dents in my shoulders. I couldn't wait for the day at college to end so I could go home and take my bra off. The only con I have is the scars, but to be honest, They don't really even bother me that much anymore. I know in a couple of years they will eventually be hardly noticeable. Even after 3 months post op they have already faded ever so much. A lot of people have asked me if the whole procedure was painful and to be honest, I hardly felt any major pain at all. Obviously as soon as I came round It was slightly painful but nothing like I'd imagined. I didn't have to take any pain killers after about 3 days post op and I was soon recovered and back at work. If anyone is contemplating going through with this procedure, I highly recommend it. It has completely changed me as a person for the better and it has to be the best decision I have ever made in my life!
