I am 22 years old and in the next year I'll be paying off my student loan, which means no more debt, which means I want to save money for a breast reduction.
My story is that I gained 25 pounds over a 2.5 year period (a lot of stress involved in the most recent year) and when I started to go back to the gym in January 2010, I asked the trainer how to lose some boob (I was a 32B and went up to 34D) and she told me that when you lose weight, thats one of the first places to go. Well, 18 lbs later I'm 126 lbs and still have 34D breasts (sometimes I swear they're even getting bigger!). It is frustrating and painful. I don't have back problems (yet) but I hate taking my bra off because it feels like they are boulders attached to my chest and it hurts when they fall. I also don't believe that my breasts should sag this much at 22, but since they grew so fast, they ended up this way. And it is frustrating to be so out of proportion - I can't even find tops or dresses that fit properly!!
So my questions for the ladies (some questions for particularly Canadians, even from Alberta?) are:
1. How long was the wait to see a surgeon for a consultation, and how long between consultation and surgery?
2. How long was the recovery period (ie: being off work)?
3. How much did it cost? Did insurance cover any part? What about provincial health care?
Thanks ladies, I really appreciate anything you could tell me!
