100% YES!!! My scars have faded drastically, and that's because I was a smoker. I was even able to breast feed for the first 4 weeks, which even my doctor was shocked about! lol They took a little over a pound off of each breast. I almost cried the first time I was able to jog in my neighborhood without being in pain afterwards. Even after having a child, they did grow a bit but never went back to the same size.
I had mine done a little over 4 years ago, and the recovery was nothing at all. I was back to work after a week (the doctor advised 2 weeks, but okay-ed it because of my recovery and my job wasn't strenuous). I thought I was going to be heartbroken and go through some weird body image depression, but I couldn't have been happier with my results. My self-image perception definitely changed for the better.
