Congrats, I think you'll be very happy! It has been such a painless recovery, and I am already very happy. I don't regret it for a second. Yes, I have the scar which will take some getting used to. But before I never would have worn a... READ COMMENT

Thank you so much! I had my procedure done in sept 2011 so I'm about 9 months post-op. READ COMMENT
