I am seriously contemplating one after (if/when) we have our 3rd child.
Dh has taken some convincing but has accepted that it's my body and I have to cart the things around so fair enough.
Has anyone had one.
Am happy to discuss via mai rather than in ahem full view IYKWIM, I'm not shy but you might be
Piff of the jugs

am seriously thinking about it after having a fitting last week and have now gone up to 30GG after second child. Will be interested in any responses !

Not had one, but am likely to. In fact, seeing gp next week to discuss this among other things.
Currently 38H, went down a bit between kiddies but not much.
Want to be a d/dd cup.
There are one or two ladies on mn who've had this done, cos i asked about it a few weeks ago.

Would also love to halve the size of my baps - now a woe-inducing 32FF after just the one child. Will watch this thread with interest tho don't plan to have the op til I've finished with baby production!
Might be painful and expensive but will save me a fortune in chiropractic fees and industrial support bras and the prospect of buying clothes and not looking like a big titty monster is so fab!!
Good luck to Piffle!

I've not had one, but did seriously look into it. The Consultant ran an information seminar on the whole process at our local hospital, showed photos, Q&A session etc and I found this invaluable. I found in my case it was better to wait until I was sure that I had finished having babies. Also I had no idea that it was major surgery, involving at least 6 weeks off work - 2 weeks of which where they recommend you are bed bound and cannot lift anything.
