So my insurance is going to cover my breast reduction!! Ahhhhh I am so much more scared now! I have a second consult scheduled, what kind of questions should I ask???


Also, since I want a variety of opinions on this, how long do I need to have someone home to help me with my 15 month old daughter? The surgeon had said maybe 3 days and I still need to take it easy after that, but I want to make sure I am understanding correctly and see what everyone else has been told.


What's the deal with silicon strips? What exactly do they do? What else can I do to facilitate healing? My surgeon thinks I will have dark purple scars because I have pale skin and very dark hair. I do tend to get dark stretch marks and scars, so I am counting on it. So I'm wondering if there is anything I can do to facilitate the healing and fading of the scars.
