IIRC, it was a painful recovery because of the amount of skin cut and areola being moved. I was mummified through my entire torso for several weeks and I think my running (I only ran at that time) was eliminated for about 8 weeks.
The good news is that there is virtually no scar from the procedure after so many years.

Good luck if you do!
PS I've been doing Weight Watchers for 6 weeks and it's an easy and reasonable way to drop some pounds.
The surgery has changed a lot. It changed my life and I wish I had done it sooner, unfortunately I had people tell me it was terrible and painful. It was neither. The wort part was itching afterward but that is totally solved by Benadryl. Afterward I found a slow twitch type site call breasthealthonline.com. Go there for sure b/c the advice is priceless and the stories are great.
Interview and find an amazing plastic surgeon. They should show you pictures of their work. You should be totally comfortable with the practice.
My only other advice, my "if I knew then what I know now" moment, was that if I had the chance I would have gotten a tummy tuck at the same time. A large numbe of patients do this. My insurance paid for the initial procedure and I could have paid for just the partial cost of the additional procedure had I known. The thing is that when the breasts are gone there is a stomach you can't really see now that you will see then!
Pm me or ask me any thing you need to know. Check out the other site too. It will answer so many questions for you.
About loosing weight - be healthy and be kind to yourself. Lately I have just seen women go diet crazy again...following these super restrictive diets and while I could also stand to loose a few, I try to remember to approach it with kindness and not frustration. Although I admit, I struggle with the last bit!

I'm going to work hard at losing some weight and pause on my decision, but not too long.
I'm glad to hear that the procedure was not terrrible or painful for you. You give me a lot of encouragement. Thank you!
I had way more aches and pains than I even realized until after I had the surgery.
I was amazed. Turned out I had back pain for years and just thought it was "normal"!!
The surgery also builds in a bit of lift so the best part is being able to skip the bra without feeling terrible about it! I also now can wear a normal sports bra without problem!
