I am more than happy to answer any questions you might have. I had my surgery 2 years ago and I am still amazed at my new, smaller girls. Every day I look at them in the mirror and think, what a wonderful thing!! I had no major problem with surgery or healing, just a small glitch with an open wound, that healed well. I didn't have much pain, slept ok the first week, better the second. Was back to exercising by 4 weeks and using hand weights 6-7 weeks. Went from a 40DDD to a lovely 38C. I am 51 years old and have the perkiest boobs of all my friends. Years ago they were all jealous cause I was so "well endowed" (yeah right!) Now they are jealous cause I have perky, happy girls!!

Hit us with questions and I am sure we can give you some good responses and help you feel comfortable and ready for surgery!!
