    one of my co-workers had reduction, she said it was quite painful, but the results are now from an H cup to DD's. She said her back & neck hurt all the time. She is much more pleased & can now see her feet!

    A friend of mine had hers done a couple of years ago, they look very natural and she loves them. Technology has come a long way from when they first started doing this, but with any surgery there are risks. I think this is a very pesonal choice for a person and if you feel that strongly about getting it done, then do it. I would just say research it well and get recommendations for the best plastic surgeon in your area.

    After having two kids and blessed with a large chest, I joke about needing a lift before much longer:roll

    I wish mine were up where they belong too. But it would be too scary for me.

    Plus the money . . . we need so many other things I just couldn't justify it.

    Each person gets to make their own decision though . . ain't life in America grand?

    my friend's insurance paid because of the changes on her neck x-ray. It became medical necessity (sp?)...I feel for her, ouch!

    I'm 25 and had mine done last dec. Went from a 34A to a 36B/34C. They look natural and I didn't suffer any complications from it, but if you're serious about doing it, do thorough research and find a good surgeon! Ask a lot of questions! How many implants has he performed? Over 1,000? Great! Look at before and after photos. Pay a reasonable amt for an experience surgeon rather than cheap for an inexperienced. It'll make a world of a difference. Cost: about $5,000. I would also recommend under the muscle for a more natural appearance and less future complications and an under the breast incision as it reduces the risk for nerve damage, problems w/ reading mammograms, breast feeding, etc. The first week post-op you will feel (explective deleted) and depressed and regret doing it, but be patient and know that it's a common reaction. The results get better and better w/ time!

    I know some people who had it done and loved it, and I know some who regretted it. There are short term and long term risks, so I guess one would need to measure how important cleavage is to one's self-esteem. Personally, I would find another way to boost mine, if it were me...I wouldn't want to take that kind of chance.

    Try this website It has lots of personal experience stories. You can also try if you want to see before and after pictures or if you need help finding a surgeon. If you want implants, I say go for it.

    ok, don't laugh....
    I didn't do an implant, but I love informercials. I tried Bloussant.

    I went from a 34B to a 36C, and my bras are still rather tight. They are kind of heavy feeling and always look kid of swollen. My husband loves it. I plan on using Bloussant again. Best $178 I ever spent.

    If anyone should try it, the small print says it works best on african americans and asians. Don't know why.

    THANK YOU LORD for making me black!

    I want a boob lift and a tummy tuck. I lost 80 lbs. a couple of years ago, and my skin , apparently, has no elastisity. I say go for it. Be sure surgeon is board certified. Ask if you can contact past clients.
