Well I guess I was not fed up enough and my boobs did grow a lot during menopause in the last 5/6 years. Plus I always tend to do things when time is almost up..
I believe if you are younger healing is easier so if you are convinced to do it don't wait! Gravity keeps working while we sit and ponder..and they don't shrink but just go down...
Insurance covered but I had to advance surgeon cost and will be reimbursed.
I did it in Rome Italy and have found this website very helpful since there is nothing like it in Italy.
It can be very lonely in the post op time especially because I did it at the end of May and now everyone's going to the beach while I have to stay in cool shady place.
The downside is that a stitch came off a few days after surgery and the surgeon said he could not put a new one so the wound would have to heal by "second intention". This means I have a hole at the base of the anchor in the mid line which seems to be a very crucial difficult spot where 3 elements meet.
Stitching along the base is a continuos line while in the middle there are 3 stitches in a T position and that's where it came off. It could be that I raised my arm during sleep or somewhat strained it during daily activities. All I know is that it's delaying the healing process and I have not been able to take a shower yet. I hope scar will be ok but it's possible it could end up being enlarged.
Also on the downside 6 days post op I developed a horribly itchy dermatitis under and on the side of the breast. It lasted a good week and I had to use antibiotic cortisone cream. It was probably due to glue in the bandages as well as over sensitive skin after years of bra elastics rubbing and irritating.
I am posting photos from post op on and hopefully in a week or 2 I will be able to say I'm over the annoying part and finally can enjoy freedom. At the moment there is still a lot of tension under.
Now that I mentioned all the down side I can say I love the size and not feeling the weight on my shoulders. My posture has been better and more open from day one.
