I will be having a breast lift next month after ongoing years of insecurities and upset over my breasts! When I hit puberty my breasts grew overnight to a large f cup! My weight has gone up and down over the years but my breasts are now deflated and rather than a 22 year old body i feel like i have the breasts of an old lady, they have a lot of excess skin and I have constant scratches on them where I am always pulling them around to "try" to fit them into my bra. I am extremely excited to finally have "perky" breasts and for them to be where they should be! I am also extremely nervous to undergo the procedure but I have trust in my surgeon and all the pain will be worth it in the end! I have been told to take 2 and a half weeks off work I am an au pair and look after 3 young children, this doesn't seem long enough to me after reading other people's experiences and was wondering if anyone has any advice?
