I had one when I was 19 (53 now). I was in Nursing School and had a ton of books (no iPads) to wag all over campus. I was having issues with my back and self image. At that point I was not overweight just not toned. It was amazing what I could do after it was healed. I had pretty bras and could run if I needed to. I gained weight and lost weight several times over the years. I was back up to DD and beyond by my top weight. They can come back since they are mostly made of fat cells anyway. I had lost down to my goal weight 3 years ago and had the lifted. All of a sudden I was beyond saggy. There was nothing left but the sagging part. I had to have implants to even out the 2 sides. I had always been larger on the right side even after the reduction. Since I was getting an implant for the left side I decided I wanted to be a C cup again. (I was only going to be a B cup without the implants.) It is really weird that I had a reduction and an augmentation/lift in the same lifetime. I guess my point is I have never regretted either surgery. Just remember that like most surgeries that involve weight/fat (reductions, tummy tucks, bariatric surgeries) you can gain it all back. I is nice not to have all the indentions on my shoulders and back problems!

If people need it it's probably well worth it. I had one reduced after having a lumpectomy in the other one. After nearly 2 years of being dreadfully lopsided it's made a huge difference to my life.
