Wow, I'm nervous. I've never had any type of surgery before so I don't know what to expect.  From what I've read it'll seem quick to me. Like I'm lying on the table, they give me some drugs, then bam I wake up in the recovery room. Anyone else care to comment?

4 days to go. Sort of looking forward to it but I'm also nervous. I just want everything to go smoothly and come out looking better than I currently look.

I was really nervous especially the day before and the day of.  My nerves didn't settle down until the anesthesiologist pushed the meds into me.  Then it was all good until I woke up.  Be prepared for a few rough days but then again who goes thru life without those kind of days every now and again.  Make sure you have someone to take care of you the first few days and even the first week. 

Thanks for your feedback.

Haslar as in Gosport? Didn't know they carried this surgery by me. Did he do a good job? any before/after pics? and how much did it cost?

cheers.

well, carried out a good job - not ready to put pics up until a couple more weeks, but in My Stories you can follow my progress - there are a few pictures.  I'm a little worried about some pointing in my right nipple but it cant really be noticed tbh the results are great.
