Boobs. I'm getting a reduction in a few weeks. From the ones who have had it what was your recovery like? My surgeon went over some of the details and how my procedure will go. I know recovery varies but I'm just looking for an estimate from people so I can make some arrangements. :)

Right? Plus wearing pretty shirts in different styles and not looking like a balloon (that's how I feel anyway). I would be super excited too. How much is it going to cost you?

Only about $2,000! My insurance covers part of the cost.

I had mine done two years to the day! My recovery was okay. I was sent home the same day. The first two nights I was able to sleep on my stomach and had no pain. But then the pain started to kick in. So I spent about two or three weeks sleeping on my couch because I was always tossing and turning and crying in pain so I didn't wanna wake the kids.

But I love it. I get cute bras now and can go into Walmart and not try in 20 bras!

Oh and your confidence will sky rocket!!

He said since it is done at the hospital it is an overnight stay...kinda sucks but it is what it is. Can you tell me about your incision? I'm getting the reduction and lift as well as the side area done. So I will have a little longer cut under, also how long was it until you felt comfortable enough to wear regular bras?
